Description

The Northwind 16 offers a wide variety of paddling possibilities. This is the canoe for you: if you love day trips, but might load it up for a week; love fishing but might need to maneuver through light rapids; love to paddle with a partner but might want to go solo. The Northwind 16 turns on a dime, yet tracks as straight as a true north compass bearing.

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.

Stealth:

Carbon and Black Innegra co-woven outer with inner blanket of proprietary yellow and black aramid. Our lightest lamination at the expense of some durability, a dream for wet footed portaging. Only available with E6 trim and E6 parts: canoe weight reflects E6/E6 savings. Stealth is lighter than StarLite and has lower impact resistance. Weight savings and wet footed portaging go hand in hand. Many options are not offered with Stealth including: skid plates, adjustable seats, third seats, and kneeling thwarts.

Color: black carbon and black Innegra weave.
