The Swiss Army Knife of the Venture range of open canoes; the Ranger 149 will do whatever you ask of it, whether that’s whitewater exploration, lake based adventures or anything in-between.
The Ranger 149 boasts a predictable and compact design that’s easy to handle, making it ideal for beginners or those just wanting to keep things simple, and a relatively flat hull provides a super stable platform that’s perfect for fishing, bird watching or nature photography.
Whether you want a canoe that two children can paddle on a family adventure, or the ideal craft for a solo mission to find peace and quiet, look no further than the Ranger 149 for anything from day trips to overnight expeditions.
Available in two construction options:
CL is a three layer construction that gives an exceptional Weight-to-Rigidity ratio, taking advantage of the fact that only the outer layers of the material are required to bear compressive and tensile forces by using a lighter, rigid foam inner layer; this foam core has the added benefit of giving the whole canoe enough inherent buoyancy to keep it at the waterline in the event of swamping. The HDPE used for the outer layers is both highly durable and readily repairable.
CoreLite X Construction
In CoreLite X, the Prospector 155 comes alive; you get all the same benefits as standard CoreLite, as well as an impressively stiff hull that gives supremely crisp performance, a weight reduction of approximately 3kg which means you can easily throw the boat around on and off the water, and increased durability meaning that if you take the last sentence too literally it won’t end in tears.
