You must have flash enabled to view the Color Picker feature. Please download the latest version of Adobe Flash player here.

Care-free durability meets unrivaled versatility in this ultimate solo river-runner. A versatile boat, this canoe is capable of tracking across the flats as well as playing havoc in whitewater. Head out with a week's worth of camping gear, stopping to play in the whitewater rapids along the way with this durable, yet stiff Royalex® by Spartech® hull.

Unique from other solo canoes, it features a solid, stable platform for paddling, lacking the twitchiness that is characteristic of others in its class. Comfortable for beginners yet rewarding for accomplished paddlers, the Freedom Solo is worth getting to know.

Royalex® by Spartech®

Royalex® by Spartech® is a vacuum-formed sheet laminate consisting of external vinyl layers enclosing multiple ABS plastic layers and a foam core. Each sheet is designed specifically for the intended use of that canoe. All combinations are durable and moderately light-weight. It is resistant to impact, yet has "memory" that allows it to absorb impact and return to original form.  Royalex® by Spartech® is repairable should the worst-case scenario ever occur.
