ESQUIF VERTIGE X
The Vertige X was conceived for tandem paddlers looking for a special niche of Whitewater playboat. It is a lengthened and modified version of our popular Vertige. As a tandem, it is an efficient and easy-tracking craft that is more easily mastered than our more radical Blast. It is available with a 3 position saddle and transforms to an efficient solo. Ideal for an initiation to tandem playboating, it allows a rapid and exhilarating progression and inspires confidence.

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.
