This compact, playful tandem canoe is ideally suited for short whitewater canoe trips that do not demand the length and cargo capacity of a larger (and heavier) tripping canoe. The Pocket Canyon also performs as well as many dedicated whitewater canoes used for day trips. This allows the canoe to serve double duty as both whitewater playboat, and technical river runner.
The Pocket Canyon’s flared hull maintains a dry ride even in large choppy waves and the rockered ends, with a progressive chine, provides a stable carving edge ideal for catching eddies. Fast, stable and maneuverable, the Pocket Canyon has all the performance features you’ll need to tackle exciting day river features, whether out for the day or on brief wilderness get away.
T-fromex is the successor of Royalex, a material famous for its durability, abrasion resistance, lightness and relatively low cost. When production of Royalex stopped a few years ago, the paddling community was left with a void for affordable canoes that could still take a beating. Currently exclusive to Esquif Canoes, T-formex can handle anything the wilderness can dish out. From rapids to beaver dams it will take it all and keep on going, all while still being light enough to portage back to the car.
