A classically designed solo canoe well-suited for a wide range of paddling conditions. The Caribou 'S' is Clipper's highest volume solo canoe.
The new Caribou ‘S’ is a classically designed solo canoe with attractive traditional lines. Paddlers will find it well suited for a wide range of paddling conditions as it is at home on a quiet lake or would be ideal for extended wilderness river trips.
The modest 2” rocker allows easy tracking, but it will still handle well in the rock gardens.The full ends make the Caribou ‘S’ the highest volume solo canoe available from CLIPPER, and the sophisticated, high performance composite layups are durable, efficient, and ready to provide you with years of paddling enjoyment.
A couple of months or so ago I took delivery of one of your Caribou S solo canoes in ultralight layup. I have now had a chance to have it out several times; I have gone solo, with my dog, and with my 8 year old girl and my dog… (I put a small rubber footed stool in the front which allows my daughter to paddle.) I wanted to let you know that in all modes, the caribou has preformed very well and I am most pleased with my purchase. So far I have only done still water canoeing but hope to put it to a bit more rigorous test this fall.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE our new Caribou .. I have never ever in my life experienced such perfection. Thank you.
The canoe performed perfectly on windy lakes, portages, and with a modest total load of 102 kg. I really enjoyed paddling it, and I look forward to a lifetime of fun with it!
