'Old School' Canoes
Most of us have had a cheap kayak or canoe over the years, perhaps it was a freebee or a hand-me-down, but we found out quickly that they were heavy, slow, and just no fun. By the time we loaded up- and then unloaded at our destination, we were too pooped to paddle. The price made it seem like a great deal, but what good is a great deal on something you won't use? Perhaps you wanted to carry in to a hidden pond or lake, but you couldn't with 80lbs on your back.
It's time to change that with Ultralight Paddling's Slipstream canoes... buy a canoe that you can actually use!
Whether reaching those fish in places that you could never reach before, or traveling further than you even thought possible via portage, or just having the freedom of loading the canoe on the vehicle by yourself... our Slipstream canoes make it all possible. This is not your father's canoe!
This is not your daddy's canoe!
- Kevlar, Hybrid, and Carbon fiber will all be significantly lighter than plastic, aluminum or fiberglas. As light as 9 lbs!
- Our padded cushion seats will be much more comfortable than sitting on a flat wood or aluminum seat.
- Sitting a few inches off the hull greatly adds to stability by lowering the center of gravity. No more tipping over!
- The SportDuo rear seat is movable to help compensate for weight changes in the front. The front seat is removable to make room for 'stuff'.
Ditch your 45-95lb lugger?
Our Slipstream ultralight canoe models are 9lbs to 26lbs. Look around online, there are many expensive 'lightweight' kayaks and canoes that weigh 45lbs plus. That may be light, but it's not ultralight. Those same boats sell for up to $3,000. That's no deal either.
Ultralight canoes do not have to be expensive
With Slipstream, ultralight paddling is actually an economical way to have fun, and enjoy a virtual vacation every weekend. Compare features, weight, and pricing to other canoes or even kayaks out there, you'll see we are extremely competitive when it comes to Kevlar, Hybrid, or Carbon Fiber construction.
Canoes are personal
Beside various models, there are plenty of colors, wood choices, and more. We have custom skirts that match the canoe!
We even have options that make paddling possible with young kids, or even dogs.
