Performance Touring
Escape

The Escape is a shorter version of the popular Minnesota II, with similar lines and the increased maneuverability that comes along with a shorter canoe. Our medium sized performance tandem, it's a very versatile craft. The Escape is a sleek performance canoe that will paddle well on streams and rivers, as well as larger lakes. It has fair depth and width to hold plenty of gear, while its flared bow and extra depth at bow and stern keeps you dry in the choppiest waters. If you love the speed and glide of the Minnesota II but are looking for a canoe that's easier to manage on brushy portages and twisty streams the Escape is the one to choose.

The Tuf-weave® layup results in our most durable composite canoes. Tuf-weave┬« canoes offer improved impact resistance and are a great compromise between light weight, performance, and price.

Ultra-light hulls are stiff and incredibly light. They are ideal for speed and distance paddling and for all people or conditions that demand the lightest gear. In our Ultra-light construction a structural-foam core and ribs are laminated into the hull and sides. We also add extra fabric layers to strengthen specific targeted areas. Aluminum plates are strategically laminated into the hull. Seats, footbraces, and all hardware is then riveted into these plates. This gives a very secure connection and eliminates rivet heads on the exterior. Aramid, the fiber used for aerospace, body armor and bulletproof vests, is amazingly light and strong. We've used it for more than 30 years to construct extremely light and tough canoes. Wenonah Canoe is the worlds largest maker of canoes using Aramid.

It's ideal for paddlers desiring more stiffness in their composite canoe. Graphite transfers energy better than any of our other materials, which makes these the most crisp paddling canoes. The aesthetic appeal of a black Graphite canoe is also undeniable.
