Possibly the biggest suprise in our range!
The Covert 10.5 excels as a solo boat. Whether you need a little extra float, want to take additional gear with you for multi-day trips, or just want a more relaxed feel to your whitewater canoeing - the 10.5 will deliver time and time again!
Proven on a huge variety of water types around the world, the Covert 10.5 solo is fast becoming a firm favourite.
The Covert is available in two construction options:
|- our thickness optimised material which is ideal for all the abuse of modern day creeking|
|- our innovative three layer material, which is great for use on bigger volume rivers where stiffness and weight are the primary concerns|
Duratough is a thickness optimised single layer hull which is made of the toughest and most durable polymer we can find.
It is maximised for impact resistance and stiffness which is continually tested, both in the lab and by our highly abusive brand ambassadors around the world ensuring it is the best it can be.
We then feed this research back to our polymer company, who work with us to continually improve Duratough's resilience.
Every shell is cooked to the perfect temperature by our in-house computer controlled ovens, and then undergoes extensive testing to ensure it is up to the rigours of modern OC1 paddling.
Duralite is an impact resistant three layer foam cored laminate making it ideal for use on bigger volume whitewater, or for paddlers who wish to prioritise the weight and stiffness of their boat over its rock bashing ability.
The outer skin is made with an incredibly stiff and tough whitewater grade plastic – the best we can find! The foam has been optimised to have a low density and to work with the inner and outer layers providing durability. To make the most of the superior materials we have optimised the distribution between the layers giving a balanced finish.
Duralite is a fantastic material and performs well where you might traditionally use boats made of materials such as Royalex and being made of linear polyethylene it is easier to repair than these should you puncture it.
Our whitewater canoes come outfitted with our custom Silverbirch bulkhead saddle made from 30kgm3 density minicell foam.
The saddle is fitted as standard with Yakima footrests. At the request of our customers the footrests are now fixed to the saddle with bonded 40mm polyethylene dowels to ensure maximum durability.
A fitting kit including foam sidewalls, foam shims, glue, sandpaper, and a surf-form is supplied to allow you to customise your boat to your needs the second it arrives.
