Created specifically to use on fast rivers, the Rogue's hull is quite short, very wide, quite deep, and has the most rocker of any of our models. This is our fastest-maneuvering tandem canoe, and it has exceptional buoyancy and dryness.
While its great depth gives enough displacement for gear, the Rogue is typically used light for the pure thrill of running rapids. Its bow is blunt to resist impacts, deep to shed waves, and is flared ahead of the seat to deflect spray while preserving good paddle access to the water. The contour of the shallow-arched hull is oriented strongly to final stability (rather than initial) making the Rogue much easier to handle on rough water.
These aspects suit the Rogue perfectly for fast rivers but less so for lake paddling.
Kept in its element, this is a supremely confident canoe. And due to its rugged Royalex hull and highly-specific design, the Rogue is an ideal vehicle for a wild ride down your favorite rock garden.
