Scotland covert 1 1

Covert Overview

Manchmal muss man Die Regeln einfach auf den Kopf stellen!

…und genau das haben wir mit dem Covert getan!

Wir hatten keinerlei fertige Idee zum Design des Covert – nur ein leeres Blatt Papier, unsere Erfahrung und die Idee, das schnellste, manövrierfähigste und benutzerfreundlichste Wildwasser-Kanu zu entwickeln, das es gibt. 

Daraus entstand als Herz der Covert-Philosphie unser gestuftes Rocker-Profil. Es lässt die Strömung am Heck definiert abreissen, reduziert so den  Reibungswiderstand und sorgt dafür, dass das Heck beim Überqueren quirliger Kehrwasserlinien, Wellen und Walzen frei bleibt. 

Das Seitenwandprofil haben wir kontinuierlich gekrümmt und so ausgelegt, dass die sekundäre Stabilität gleichmäßig hoch ist und präzises Feedback gibt, während die Wasserlinie schmal bleibt – denn auch aufgekantet bedeutet weniger Reibung mehr Geschwindigkeit!

Der Covert macht aber auch beim Sliden und Grinden, Boofen, Surfen und fetten Rockspins einen Höllenspaß.
Kein Problem für unser widerstandsfähiges, speziell für uns hergestelltes, hochdichtes Polyethylen. 

Construction

COVERT 5603

The Covert is available in two construction options:

Duratough  

- our thickness optimised material which is ideal for all the abuse of modern day creeking

Duralite 

- our innovative three layer material, which is great for use on bigger volume rivers where stiffness and weight are the primary concerns

 

 

duratough

Duratough is a thickness optimised single layer hull which is made of the toughest and most durable polymer we can find.

It is maximised for impact resistance and stiffness which is continually tested, both in the lab and by our highly abusive brand ambassadors around the world ensuring it is the best it can be.

We then feed this research back to our polymer company, who work with us to continually improve Duratough's resilience.

Every shell is cooked to the perfect temperature by our in-house computer controlled ovens, and then undergoes extensive testing to ensure it is up to the rigours of modern OC1 paddling.

 

 

duralite

 

Duralite is an impact resistant three layer foam cored laminate making it ideal for use on bigger volume whitewater, or for paddlers who wish to prioritise the weight and stiffness of their boat over its rock bashing ability.

The outer skin is made with an incredibly stiff and tough whitewater grade plastic – the best we can find! The foam has been optimised to have a low density and to work with the inner and outer layers providing durability.  To make the most of the superior materials we have optimised the distribution between the layers giving a balanced finish.

Duralite is a fantastic material and performs well where you might traditionally use boats made of materials such as Royalex and being made of linear polyethylene it is easier to repair than these should you puncture it.

Outfitting

Covert 9.3 saddle footpeg detail 1

 

 

Our whitewater canoes come outfitted with our custom Silverbirch bulkhead saddle made from 30kgm3 density minicell foam.

The saddle is fitted as standard with Yakima footrests. At the request of our customers the footrests are now fixed to the saddle with bonded 40mm polyethylene dowels to ensure maximum durability.

A fitting kit including foam sidewalls, foam shims, glue, sandpaper, and a surf-form is supplied to allow you to customise your boat to your needs the second it arrives.
