These lightweight canoes are manufactured using materials which are much lighter than rotomoulded polyethylene canoes. Lightweight canoes from Nova Craft are manufactured using TuffStuff.
TuffStuff is a cutting edge proprietary composite made of basalt and Innegra fibers. Basalt fibre is made of melted basalt rock and Innegra is a fibre consisting mostly of polypropylene. When they are woven together into a cloth and infused with our high impact vinylester resin system, the result is simply amazing! TuffStuff canoes are a great choice for paddlers looking for a light canoe for extended flat water tripping
