The ARE V1 is the ultimate one-man, rudderless canoe. Its smooth glide and responsive steering give you the feeling of being “at one” with the water. Not having a rudder gives paddlers a sense of challenge and mastery. The V1 is ideal for smooth waters, but skilled paddlers don’t stop there. This canoe best prepares single paddlers for a spot on a 6-man Matahina. The ARE V1 takes little preparation time, with an easy-fit, adjustable iako that’s a snap.
