The Covert - the fastest, most manoeuvrable, and most predictable Open Canoe possible.

At the core of this philosophy is the stepped rocker profile. The step in the tail ensures a clean release of water from the stern, which not only reduces drag, but also helps to reduce the tendency for the tail to bog down on boily eddy lines or when getting bounced around by large lateral waves.

The sidewall profile of the boat is also continually curved. This helps boost secondary stability and is carefully angled to keep the waterline width to a minimum.

As the Covert is made just to slide, spin, grind, boof, and surf its way down the river Silverbirch have searched the globe for the best materials to build it from. Every boat is built in-house by a dedicated team of paddlers, using a custom grade of super tough high- density polyethylene.


Materials


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.

Outfitting



Silverbirch whitewater canoes come outfitted with the custom Silverbirch bulkhead saddle made from 30kgm3 density minicell foam.

The saddle is fitted as standard with Yakima footrests. At the request of customers the footrests are now fixed to the saddle with bonded 40mm polyethylene dowels to ensure maximum durability.

A fitting kit including foam sidewalls, foam shims, glue, sandpaper, and a surf-form is supplied to allow you to customise your boat to your needs the second it arrives.
