If you’re looking for a sleek, straight-tracking canoe that’s easy to paddle and easy to handle out of the water, the Adirondack fits the bill. Designed for day and overnight trips, it paddles efficiently with a light-to-moderate load. The Adirondack is also graced with excellent stability in most conditions. Canoe & Kayak Magazine said, “This is one smooth paddling canoe.” Who said an efficient canoe had to be long?
The Adirondack’s performance falls in between some of our most popular 16-foot designs. It’s more stable and easier to turn than the narrower, faster Escapade but tracks straighter than the nimble Aurora. This balanced performance has made the Adirondack the top choice of people who are looking for a stable, lightweight canoe for lakes and slow moving rivers.
Ultra-light hulls are stiff and incredibly light. They are ideal for speed and distance paddling and for all people or conditions that demand the lightest gear. In our Ultra-light construction a structural-foam core and ribs are laminated into the hull and sides. We also add extra fabric layers to strengthen specific targeted areas. Aluminum plates are strategically laminated into the hull. Seats, footbraces, and all hardware is then riveted into these plates. This gives a very secure connection and eliminates rivet heads on the exterior. Aramid, the fiber used for aerospace, body armor and bulletproof vests, is amazingly light and strong. We’ve used it for more than 30 years to construct extremely light and tough canoes. Wenonah Canoe is the worlds largest maker of canoes using Aramid.
