Hurricane is the result of 2 years of R&D. A series of computer designed and machined prototypes were tested. The results justify the effort. The Hurricane is smooth in flat water and responsive in the bumps. Component parts for the Hurricane were also developed using CAD. The molds for the iakos, footpedals, and rudders, as well as the hull and deck masters, were CNC milled. The Hurricane is constructed using the best materials and processes available. Carbon fiber is used extensively throughout the canoe. We use specially formulated oven cure epoxies, polyurethane paints, and prepregs to make the lightest canoe on the market.
The Hurricane was designed for speed and maneuverability. It is often said that the Hurricane is the fastest canoe, even thou this canoe is best for flat water and lighter paddlers many larger paddlers (200lbs+) have done very well on this canoe even in rough water conditions.
