The Northwind 16 offers a wide variety of paddling possibilities. This is the canoe for you: if you love day trips, but might load it up for a week; love fishing but might need to maneuver through light rapids; love to paddle with a partner but might want to go solo. The Northwind 16 turns on a dime, yet tracks as straight as a true north compass bearing. This canoe comes outfitted with a Carbon and Black Innegra hull, as well elegant E6 carbon gunwales with integrated carbon end decks; E6 carbon web seats hung on walnut drops; E6 carbon thwarts; stem mounted tie down loops. We do not recommend E6 trim for whitewater.

Carbon and Black Innegra co-woven outer with inner blanket of proprietary yellow and black aramid. Our lightest lamination at the expense of some durability, a dream for wet footed portaging. Only available with E6 trim and E6 parts: canoe weights reflects E6/E6 savings. Stealth is lighter than StarLite and has lower impact resistance. Weight savings and wet footed portaging go hand in hand.
Color: black carbon and black Innegra weave.
