Kevlar ultra light version. I bought this new spring of 2000, for my trip to the Quetico. On the way in storm came in, it was high winds and waves I thought we would go down with all our gear. But the champlain handled it excellent. It tracks good and very pleased with our speed. The only problems were when one alluminum cross bar and the front seat support both snapped in half, duct tape and branches got us through, but it made for an uneasy trip wondering if the others would go. wenonah did repair the broken pieces through the dealer, saying it was to thin or flawed stock, but I wonder about the others now, as the dealer said he couldn't belive how thin it was compared to the replacement pieces.
