Overview | Agent 88
The brief was simple for this boat - quick, nimble, dry, forgiving, fun

 With a huge amount of team input, multiple prototypes, and extensive testing in Corsica, UK winter floods, and on the US east coast we have made this brief a reality!

The Agent has more rocker than any other Silverbirch model, more volume, and more edge. The result is a forgiving and highly manoeuvrable creeker with plenty of tail rocker to kill excessive speed on steeper sections and a nose rocker profile made to boof everything in sight!

A well defined chine with a hard exit compliments the central rocker profile to give the Agent plenty of drive and acceleration when on rail, whilst retaining a chine angle that does not 'trip up' on rocks.

Plenty of sidewall flair ensures there is all the secondary stability you need when things get a little rowdy and has the added benefit of ensuring the Agent fits a wide range of paddler weights.

Make it your own

The Agent 88 is built the most challenging moves in steep-creeking environments, so every component has to be fit for purpose and factory fitted to proven standards. The construction is specified by us, but as ever, Silverbirch Canoes offer unparalleled options for custom finishes.

Customise Your Saddle

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.
