The Polaris quickly accelerates and offers a lively paddling experience. Skilled paddlers raved about the performance of its predecessor and we named our company after it.

Description

Material Options

BlackLite:

Carbon outer with Aramid reinforcements. Combines the stiffness of carbon fiber with 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.

 

IXP:

Substantial Innegra with an inner blanket of Aramid. Innegra has excellent impact absorption, great flex and good abrasion resistance. A full wet vacuum bag makes a durable, reasonably light canoe. Multiple layers of Innegra with no foam core or ribs means a canoe capable of extended river tripping and expedition whitewater. An extremely durable lamination with far better performance than Royalex. Exterior resin coated because gel coat chips and cracks when subjected to substantial impacts.

Color: Innegra weave

 

WhiteGold:

Innegra outer with Aramid reinforcements and foam core. An alternative to BlackLite that is economically priced, but at the expense of some additional weight and lowered durability. Exterior gel coated.

Colors: Spruce, Almond or Red.

 

Trim Options

Aluminum:

Bronze anodized gunwales, thwarts and grab handles; thermoformed deck plates; ash portage yoke; laminated, contoured web seats hung on ash trusses.

Wood:

Oiled white ash gunwales; sculpted and laminated black walnut and ash end decks; walnut and ash laminated contoured web seats hung on walnut trusses; walnut and ash laminated thwarts and yoke; stem mounted tie down loops. Laminated black walnut and ash creates a distinctive and refined canoe that is stronger and lighter.
