Silverbirch Agent 88 - Duratough
The brief was simple for the Agent - quick, nimble, dry, forgiving, fun.
The Agent has more rocker than any other Silverbirch model, more volume, and more edge. The result is a forgiving and highly manoeuvrable creeker with plenty of tail rocker to kill excessive speed on steeper sections and a nose rocker profile made to boof everything in sight!
A well defined chine with a hard exit compliments the central rocker profile to give the Agent plenty of drive and acceleration when on rail, whilst retaining a chine angle that does not 'trip up' on rocks.
Plenty of sidewall flair ensures there is all the secondary stability you need when things get a little rowdy and has the added benefit of ensuring the Agent fits a wide range of paddler weights.
Duratough is a thickness optimised single layer hull which is made of the toughest and most durable polymer Silverbirch can find.
It is maximised for impact resistance and stiffness which is continually tested, both in the lab and by Silverbirch's highly abusive brand ambassadors around the world ensuring it is the best it can be.
Silverbirch then feed this research back to our polymer company, who work with them to continually improve Duratough's resilience.
Every shell is cooked to the perfect temperature by the computer controlled ovens, and then undergoes extensive testing to ensure it is up to the rigours of modern OC1 paddling.
