Patented All Drop Stitch Contruction Creates The Shape Of Traditional Canoes
The flat three inch thick high pressure (up to 10 psi) side and floor chambers create a narrow, rigid and extremely spacious canoe. This construction system allows us to literally reinvent the traditional canoe in a unique inflatable form and provides previously impossible benefits. Greater safety, incredible stability and incomparable portability with no sacrifice to paddling performance.
Safer Because Of Inherent Buoyancy
Unlike traditional rigid canoes, our Travel Canoe has added buoyancy from the inflatable air chambers of the floor and sides. This means while adhering to the Travel Canoes specifications it will not sink. In addition, because the air chambers have inherent buoyancy you can load this canoe with hundreds of pounds of supplies and still paddle and maneuver easily. Best of all this inherent buoyancy makes the Travel Canoe safer in whitewater rapids (up through class IV).
Double Chine System For Triple Stability And Improved Tracking
The Travel Canoe is more stable than many traditional canoes because of the Double Chines that run the entire length of the canoe. All canoes have some form of primary and secondary stability. The Travel Canoe actually has three forms of stability. The two distinct chines along with the flat bottom contribute to stability, speed and tracking of the Travel Canoe. The first chine is formed where the drop stitch inflatable floor meets the drop stitch inflatable side walls. The second chine comes from the angle of the drop stitch inflatable side walls. This results in primary stability from the flat bottom, secondary stability from the first chine and additional stability from the second chine.
Bow And Stern Molds Combined With Rear Removable Skeg For Speed And Tracking
The Travel Canoe features bow and stern molds that cut through the wind, water, waves and current while creating lift reducing drag and friction. The added feature of the large removable rear skeg further improves speed and tracking because the skeg reduces the natural yaw of a canoe and makes forward motion far more efficient. The skeg is designed for use on open water and windy conditions. It can be removed in seconds for use on whitewater or when using the J-stokes.
Diamond Deck Pads For More Secure Footing
To provide safe and secure footing when getting in and out of the Travel Canoe we have added a layer of diamond pattern anti-skid EVA foam decking. This not only makes this canoe safer to stand on (especially when fishing and casting) it adds an additional layer of protection to the floor. To secure the optional drop stitch inflatable seats while providing maximum adjustability (for one, two or three paddlers) additional d-rings have been added to hold a durable nylon strap that keeps the seat in place.
Packs Into A Bag And Fits Into A Small Car Trunk
Not only is the Travel Canoe 33% lighter than rigid canoes of the same class but it also deflates and packs down to a mere 1/4 of its inflated size. So the Travel Canoe will fit easily into the smallest car trunks for both easy storage and transport, making it readily available for use at all times.
