The Trailhead Prospector 15 Canoe is the shortest and lightest member of the Prospector series. As such it is the best choice for those who want the option to paddle solo or in tandem. This versatility makes it perfect for weekend canoe camping excursions, wildlife observation, fishing and family canoe adventures at the cottage.
The Trailhead Prospector 15 Canoe is well suited to both lakes and rivers. The slightly V-shaped hull and moderate rocker provide a stable canoe that tracks well while being very manoeuvrable. Its weight and dimensions offer significant advantages, for those looking to explore narrow waterways or excursions with multiple portages
The Trailhead Prospector 15 is available in four material options:
- Basalt Innegra
- Basalt innegra is a composite of basalt fiber and polypropylene fiber that offers high impact resistance and durability at an affordable price. It is ideal for beginners or recreational paddlers who want a tough canoe that can withstand rough use.
- Kevlar Lite
- Our Kevlar Lite laminate is a modern take on one of the most popular composite canoe materials on the market. These boats feature a Kevlar outer layer, foam ribs and a floor insert for extra strength, and a beautiful naturally coloured Basalt Innegra Comingle cloth interior.
- The carbon lay-up is the lightest weight laminate construction in any of our infusion moulded canoes. This layup features a traditional black carbon fiber cloth on the exterior with a basalt innegra twill layer on the interior. Foam ribs and a floor insert provide extra strength in key structural areas.
- Carbon Kevlar
- Our Carbon Kevlar lay-up blends amazing aesthetics with modern composite technology. Dyed Kevlar (Red or Teal) is woven together with black carbon fiber, combining the robustness of Kevlar with the light weight of carbon fiber. The interior of our Carbon Kevlar canoes feature a tasteful earth-tone Basalt Innegra Commingle.
