With its beautiful curves and elegant design the Echo will definitely catch your attention. In addition to its unique look, one thing you will surely notice when you paddle it is how easy it is to maneuver.
"The Echo is a canoe I can dance with on flat water or take down class II rivers or on overnight trips” mentioned Karen Knight when Esquif asked the National Champion what made the Echo so special. With its great speed, tracking and secondary stability it is one of the smoothest and most reliable companion you can have on calm solo paddling adventures.
*Winter maintenance: We recommend that you loosen all screws on the wooden gunwales by a half turn before storing the canoe in freezing temperatures.
You can also rub the wooden parts with tung oil to maintain great water repellance once or twice a season.

T-Formex is a high tech laminated material consisting of an ABS foam core, ABS sheets, and a protective outer plastic skin. Its resistance to abrasion and heavy impacts make it an excellent material for recreational, whitewater, and expedition canoes. Once heated and molded, T-Formex sheets form a hull that has an unmatched structural memory. So even after being folded around a rock, an Esquif T-Formex canoe will return to its original shape with minimal distortion. Stronger than fibreglass and lighter than polyethylene, T-Formex gives Esquif’s designers a material with superior characteristics.
