The Freedom has a shallow arch hull and soft chines, all adding up to great stability.
The Freedom is a Jensen designed solo canoe originally introduced as the ‘F1’. Clipper has reintroduced it to our line as the perfect ‘workout’ canoe. It is also well suited for amateur racing. For wilderness trippers this canoe is appropriate for lighter paddlers carrying loads between 100-200lbs.
The Freedom has a shallow arch hull and soft chines, all adding up to great stability. This canoe tracks well and is easy to maneuver when leaned offside to execute a tight turn. The seat is adjustable to three different heights and also slides fore and aft for maximum versatility in various water conditions.
Sliding Bucket Seat (Adjustable to 3 Different Heights)
I have the Clipper Freedom solo canoe in the Kevlar Ultralight lay up with the black trim . It weighs in at about 40lbs. that is not really that light for a 16’7″ ultralight solo canoe . But it feels more solid than other ultralights like the Wenonah Advantage. It is an older Jensen design and has front and rear flotation tanks. Like the Advantage it has a foot brace and a sliding bucket seat. Like the Advantage it has good speed and is fairly stable, but what really sets it a part from the Advantage is the 3 way adjustable seat.
It is a well made solo canoe that is a little on the heavy side, but a joy to paddle.
