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.
Duracore plus boasts a 200% increase in stiffness and impact resistance over our Duracore laminate, whilst also benefitting from increased UV protection and improved durability.
Duracore plus is the ideal choice for those who prioritise durability over weight and is ideal for professional use.
The outer skin is made with an incredibly stiff and tough whitewater grade plastic – the best we can find, the foam has been optimized to have a lower density, giving us a thicker core than that used in Duracore plus, and the material distribution between the layers has been optimised to make the most of the superior materials.
The result? Stiffer, lighter, and yet just more durable!
The noticeable weight saving over our Duracore plus laminate puts many models made with Duralite into close competition with more expensive canoes produced with composite or royalex construction methods.
