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.
Our Carbon Kevlar lay-up blends amazing aesthetics with modern composite technology.
