Experience the canoe that started it all on the rivers of Vermont. Jim Henry's first design the Malecite was originally executed in fiberglass and the heritage is readily apparent in todays FGX Malecite. Fully deserving of being described as a  much revered classic, the Malecite is truly a timeless design that, when it meets state-of-the art composite materials, yields a truly unforgettable experience. It's a design that has been referred to as “poetry in motion” by those who have paddled it.The “spark” that has endeared the Malecite to multiple generations of paddlers, tandem or solo, is now available in a hybrid fiberglass laminate. The sophisticated, high performance fiberglass lay-up is stiff, efficient, durable, and moderately priced for budget conscious canoeists
