Speed, precision and maneouvrability were the three guiding elements in the creation of the Spark; a concept represented in the lines of the Ignitor, a slalom canoe well known for exceptional performance. In collaboration with American slalom champion John Kazimierczyk, we have created a canoe with the performance of a high quality composite with the toughness of T-Formex. Esquif will continue to support open canoe slalom with designs and involvement. But the Spark is not just for racers. Looking for lightness, precision and acceleration? If you’re a technical paddler looking for a fast, responsive river runner, try the Spark.
