New from Mohawk - Designed by Harold Deal Mohawk introduces the SHAMAN 12 in Royalex and R-84. A 12'7" whitewater solo playboat that successfully combines slalom-like maneuverability with outstanding forward speed and glide. A blend of subtle design features distinguish the SHAMAN 12 from other boats in its class. This is a canoe that gives the technical playboater an advantage in making aggressive attainments and linking challenging moves. The SHAMAN is quick to turn without any overspin and accelerates easily on demand. Directional stability is excellent. A smooth, predictable personality minimizes defensive braces. The asymmetrical rocker and waterline with dynamic trim sensitivity lets you fine tune the boat's reaction to currents and paddle strokes. Stern leans release the bow to maximize the spin characteristics. Gentle knee pressure can initiate carved turns or set the hull to block waves. Generous flare from bow to stern provides remarkable final stability that appeals to whitewater paddlers of all skill levels. Cruisers like the SHAMAN'S responsive yet forgiving feel. The slender hull width is comfortable to paddle and promotes good stroke mechanics. We believe you'll appreciate the great styling too. The SHAMAN 12 allows you the freedom to paddle precisely, and with confidence and finesse. It is a superb choice for open boaters who want to develop and exercise efficient technique. The SHAMAN excels in catching those elusive surfing waves. Paddlers also comment on how easy it is to roll. Did we mention the outrageous fun you can have? Harold Deal is known for his adeptness in several canoe disciplines.
