"Sometimes you just have to throw the rulebook away"
That's exactly what the designers at Silverbirch did. In development, nothing was off-limits and nothing was pre-set. They sat down in the shaping bay with a blank piece of paper and a simple brief - "To create the fastest, most-manoeuvrable, and most-predictable open WW canoe possible.
At the core of this philosophy is Silverbirch's stepped-rocker profile. The step in teh 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 it is also built with the best possible materials. Every boat is built in-house by a dedicated team of paddlers, using a custom-grade of super-tough high-density polyethylene.
