NorthStar’s most popular tandem tripper. Remarkably maneuverable, yet reassuringly stable. Known to be the most seaworthy, yet fast, canoe available. When other canoes are wind-bound you’ll enjoy the thrill of playing in the waves. 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.
