These are the new L'edge's made in the LiquidLogic factory in North Carolina. Outfitted by Esquif. Introduced in 2010 as The traditional canoe for high performance paddlers the confidence inspiring Esquif L'edge quickly became the new benchmark canoe for paddlers of all skill levels that enjoy class II to class V whitewater. The generation-2 L'edge Lite (51-lbs with wood trim) delivers everything people came to love about the original boat in a lighter and more responsive package. Experience the new L'edge Lite to feel what canoes used to be like .
