Kevlar Fusion

Our most popular canoe laminate with our highest strength to weight ratio.

Swift Kevlar Fusion pack boats are built with urethane acrylate resin that does not incorporate an exterior gel coat. This infusion process produces the highest strength to weight ratio and inter-laminate shear strength of any composite hull in the industry. The hull is comprised of an exterior layer of Polyester, as well as S-glass and Kevlar cloth layers sandwiching a durable foam core and rib system. The laminate is fused together with a high impact, flexible urethane acrylate resin system injected during high-pressure infusion, producing optimal dispersion and laminate consistency.

The Kevlar Fusion laminate is available with multiple vibrant exterior color cloth finishes.
