Safety

Laced-In Buoyancy Wedges

Additional buoyancy is essential for open water and whitewater use; foam wedges provide an excellent, high-durability solution.

Laced-In Airbags

Maximum flotation at minimum weight, essential to reduce the forces exerted on the boat during a whitewater rescue.

Rope End Grabs

Ideal for whitewater rescues, fitted above the waterline through the main body of the canoe for sufficient strength.

Painters

Lengths of rope at the bow and stern used for a variety of purposes, such as tying up the boat or guiding it down rapids when empty.

Lacing

Bow & Stern

Used to secure buoyancy and provides high strength attachment points along the sides of the canoe.

Full Length Lacing

Lacing along the full length of both sides to increase rescue attachment point versatility and strength.

Full Length with Gear Loops

Threaded PVC tubing along the inside of the lacing allows easier attachment of gear and equipment.

Custom Lacing

We'll work with you to produce a bespoke lacing solution perfectly matched to your requirements.
