The Freedom is a Jensen designed solo canoe originally introduced as the ‘F1’. Clipper has reintroduced it to our line as the perfect ‘workout’ canoe. It is also well suited for amateur racing. For wilderness trippers this canoe is appropriate for lighter paddlers carrying loads between 100-200lbs.
The Freedom has a shallow arch hull and soft chines, all adding up to great stability. This canoe tracks well and is easy to maneuver when leaned offside to execute a tight turn. The seat is adjustable to three different heights and also slides fore and aft for maximum versatility in various water conditions.

Ultralight Kevlar® canoes are built without any exterior gelcoat, thus the hull has the ‘honey’ color of Kevlar®. The absence of gelcoat results in a weight savings of approximately 10%. The first layer is woven S-glass which is very abrasion resistant and is stronger under compression than Kevlar®. Two layers of Kevlar® are then applied with extra reinforcement in areas of high stress.
