Corelite Construction


Venture Canoes Ranger 14 & 16 our constructed from 'CoreLite'. This is a triple layered material consisting of an inner and outer layers of high density polyethylene with a foam core inserted in-between.


Benefits of 'CoreLite':

Weight Saving
Corelite is lighter than some other triple layer polyethelene constructions. 
Greater Rigidity
Improving efficiency through the water and greatly reducing flex in rougher conditions making it a suitable material for canoes which will venture out on to rivers and in rougher conditions. Corelite also has much improved resistance to general denting while in storage and while transporting on your roof rack.

Extra Buoyancy 
Triple skin construction provides inherent buoyancy that makes the canoe float much higher when full of water, assisting with self-rescue techniques. 

Increased Durability
Corelite is very tough and durable. 
Even if the outer shell is damaged, the core will not absorb any water, leak or suffer any lasting damage and can be easily repaired at your leisure .
