Phoenix

Rivers flow exhilaratingly fast and soulfully slow. Paddlers often encounter both experiences on the same river a few hours apart. One of two Northstar solo canoes with symmetrical rocker, the Phoenix offers an uncompromising hull design to deftly handle any water conditions, flat or fast.

Material Options

BlackLite:

Proprietary carbon outer with Aramid reinforcements. Combines the stiffness of carbon fiber and the excellent tensile strength of Aramid. Our full wet vacuum bag and foam core allows us to artfully balance strength and weight. For those that want significantly greater durability than StarLite, yet value a lightweight canoe. Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings.

Color: Black carbon weave.

StarLite:

All Aramid. Our proprietary yellow and black makes a stunning moiré pattern. Full wet bag minimizes resin and creates the lightest weight canoe available. Foam core, ribs and internal reinforcements make a stiff, efficient hull. The choice of flat-water paddlers everywhere. Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings.

Color: Northstar proprietary Aramid weave.

IXP:

Substantial Innegra with an inner blanket of Aramid. Innegra has excellent impact absorption, great flex and good abrasion resistance. A full wet vacuum bag makes a durable, reasonably light canoe. Multiple layers of Innegra with no foam core or ribs means a canoe capable of extended river tripping and expedition whitewater. An extremely durable lamination with far better performance than Royalex. Exterior resin coated because gel coat chips and cracks when subjected to substantial impacts.

Color: Innegra weave
