The Trailhead Prospector 17 is a versatile canoe designed for extended wilderness trips. It offers great tracking and manoeuvrability, a dry and stable ride, and comes in four material options to cater to different budgets and preferences.
The Trailhead Prospector 17 Canoe, the longest canoe in the Prospector lineup, is designed for extended wilderness trips. It's the ultimate choice for remote lake explorations, challenging river routes, and extensive portage journeys. Its hull shape and ample rocker combine to deliver superior tracking and manoeuvrability, while the deep hull and extended length ensure a dry, stable ride, even when fully loaded.
The Prospector 17 retains the series' renowned versatility, perfectly suited for tandem tripping and, in the hands of a skilled paddler, equally effective for solo adventures. With its balance of size, weight, and durability, the Prospector 17 is made for adventurers demanding high performance and extra capacity in all water conditions.
The Trailhead Prospector 17 is available in four material options:
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.
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.
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.
