V6 Matahina: Fast Just Got Lighter and Faster
Our new hybrid construction allows for a lighter weight, high performance canoe, while keeping it’s durability for everyday use. Here’s how we accomplished this.
1) Full-length construction: Tahitian canoes have traditionally been shipped in two parts. Not anymore. By eliminating the mating flange and hardware, we’ve cut down a considerable amount of weight, adding to the speed and overall performance of our V6 Matahina 2) Carbon-fiber Seats: Another way of cutting down canoe weight, while retaining durability, was to change the seats from fiberglass to carbon-fiber. 3) We also replaced the heavy internal wood ribbing with lightweight High-density polyurethan (HDPE)/Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) structural ribbing, further reducing weight while maintaining structural integrity. 4) New state-of-the-art carbon-fiber iako design features a higher arc to clear paddler’s stroke in seat 3 and 5, allowing minimum reach without interference. 5) Engineered and balanced for maximum performance in all conditions.
