RapidFire is a pack canoe with stunning speed in a portable, 27-30 pound package. A new fast and fun Adirondack classic.

RapidFire is David Yost’s transformation of the Adirondack pack canoe into a wicked fast tripper that runs with sea kayaks. Asymmetrical hull shape, shear and rocker, and shouldered tumblehome with an elliptical bottom make RapidFire one of the more sophisticated hulls afloat. The shouldered tumblehome allows more efficient, more vertical, double paddle strokes. That, combined with the wildly efficient (beyond racing spec) 7.5 Length to Width ratio, RapidFire flies like a scram-jet and tracks like a train.

RapidFire is available in expedition laminate with kneeling cane seat for smaller paddlers desiring a hot solo, single blade paddle, tripping canoe with unmatched forward efficiency.
