The Pioneer X-stream is a new inflatable canoe design that replaces the Pro Pioneer and Magnum made by SOAR Inflatables (designed by Larry Bartlett).
We have moved away from Hypalon and Neoprene construction and developed a PVC model to, 1) Save weight, 2) Increase Capacity, 3) Guaranteed warranty, 4) Lower cost.
The Pioneer X-stream is made of 32-oz PVC and weighs 72 lbs (that’s 15-lbs less than the Pro Pioneer and 30-lbs less than the Magnum.)
Working with PVC material has allowed us to design a lightweight wilderness canoe that holds 300 lbs. more than the Pro Pioneer, and its floor design allows users to run up to class IV whitewater without modifications made to the boat.
The Pioneer X-stream is a convertible self-bailer, and has no wood accessories. The floor is fully removable to provide weight distribution options during transport. The floor is a 4” drop-stitch design that inflates to become more rigid than I-beam construction and easier to repair. This canoe is inherently more stable than the Pro Pioneer because the floor and side tube alignment has a lower profile on the waterline.
There are lashing points along every square inch of the top surface of the Pioneer X-stream.

Length: 16.5 feet
Tube Diameter: 16” side tubes tapered to 24” at the bow and stern
