Sometimes you have to throw the rule book away. That’s exactly what Silverbirch have done with the Covert.. In development nothing was off limits and nothing was pre-set.
We simply sat down in our shaping room with a blank piece of paper and a simple brief: To create the fastest, most manoeuvrable and most predictable white water open canoe possible.
At the core of this philosophy is our stepped rocker profile. The step in the 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 continually curved. This helps boost secondary stability and is carefully angled to keep the waterline width to a minimum. As the Covert is made to slide, spin, grind, boof and surf it’s way down the river we have searched the globe for the best materials to build it from. Every boat is built in-house by a dedicated team of paddlers, using a custom grade of super tough high-density polyethylene.

Reviewer: Calum from Shepperton
The Covert is super easy to quickly get used to, super responsive and didn't take long to learn to roll! Good for having some fun on some whitewater. I've never owned one of these before but i would strongly reccomend this to everyone who is interested in C1.
