Availability:More Information


The Wilderness is a mid-length extended solo tripping canoe. It was designed to carry plenty of gear and encourage distant exploration far beyond the reaches of smaller, less efficient crafts. The Wilderness carries additional freeboard and bow height for a dryer ride in rough waters common to larger, wind exposed lakes. The dryness of additional freeboard is married with the correct amount of tumblehome for efficient paddling. The Kevlar Ultra-Light lay-up makes loading or portaging a much easier prospect.

Ultra-light hulls are stiff and incredibly light. They are ideal for speed and distance paddling and for all people or conditions that demand the lightest gear. In Wenonah's ultra-light construction a structural-foam core and ribs are laminated into the hull and sides. Wenonah also adds extra fabric layers to strengthen specific targeted areas. Aluminum plates are strategically laminated into the hull. Seats, footbraces, and all hardware is then riveted into these plates. This gives a very secure connection and eliminates rivet heads on the exterior. Kevlar®, the fiber used for aerospace, body armor and bulletproof vests, is amazingly light and strong.
