The Esquif Nitro is a revolutionary departure from traditional canoe design. It is the first T-Formex whitewater canoe to incorporate a double chined hull. As a result of the needs expressed by paddlers, the Nitro was developed to be the best surfing open-canoe available for canoeists. By incorporating double chines, the Nitro exhibits predictable edge control when side surfing or carving turns and is comfortable in transitions between initial and secondary stability. A deep hull in the center and towards the ends enhances buoyancy and dryness. Its design allows you to push your limits and enjoy the river's full potential.
