Explorer Aramid Hybrid
Innovative materials enhance the timeless design of the Explorer, creating a sleeker, faster, more responsive and efficient hull that provides more stimulating performance for just about any paddler. A sophisticated hybrid layup of aramid, fiberglass, carbon, and core is shielded by a tough gel coat and formed into the moderately rockered shallow vee hull, providing the balance of efficiency and seaworthiness that has become the hallmark of the Explorer. This canoe is expedition-proven and expedition-worthy but fully accommodating for the family, the fisherman, or any aspiring paddler new to the sport. The Explorer KX is one of those rare canoes that can satisfy the most discerning paddler but also welcomes the developing canoeist.
