'Afon', similar to 'Avon', is derived from the Celtic British word for 'river'; this simple word in itself says everything about this canoe.
Rivers can be tranquil, or they can be wild, and the Venture Afon is a true enthusiast's canoe in which you can enjoy either variety as well as everything between, whether paddled solo or tandem.
High volume ends, a flared bow, a subtle V-hull, and paddle cutaways all produce a canoe that is responsive and an utter joy to paddle, whilst continuous hull curvature gives a progressive feel, and high secondary stability.
The Afon tracks beautifully when flat, but heel it over onto its high-stability chines and the paddle cutaways will allow you to perfectly place your blade and swing the boat around on the spot; on the way downriver you'll notice the flared, high volume bow picking up through features and keeping you dry and headed in the right direction.
A triple layer, polyethylene foam sandwich material for great stiffness to weight ratio with tried and tested durability. The ideal choice for centres, families, and moderate whitewater use.
