Canoe & Pack Boat Laminates


EXPEDITION KEVLAR

Expedition Kevlar

An ultra strong, medium weight laminate for wilderness trippers who demand tremendous strength and durability.

Swift Expedition Kevlar boats are built with a urethane resin system for durability and longevity, and a thin exterior gel coat for a beautiful finish that incorporates UV protection. This infusion process produces the highest inter-laminate shear strength of any composite hull in the industry. The hull is comprised of layers of Kevlar fabric, Basalt cloth derived from volcanic rock, and high modulus polypropylene Innegra fiber. These layers and pieces sandwich a durable foam core and rib system, creating a long lasting laminate capable of greater elongation and elasticity without failure.

The Expedition Kevlar laminate is available with multiple vibrant exterior colour cloth finishes.
