XR Trekking Features & Innovations

The XR Trekking is very unique and has quite a few features that take the functionality of a canoe to the next level. Take it kayaking in the ocean or a lake, canoeing down a gentle river for a fun afternoon with the kids or load it up with gear and embark on a paddling expedition that you’ll never forget! The XR Trekking can handle it all as the jack-of-all-trades of the canoe world.

Proven Design Image

Tested and Proven Design

An overall flat design with a slightly up-turned bow and stern. The low center of gravity keeps this inflatable canoe extremely stable and more resistant to capsizing. The bows also glide over waves without discomfort to the paddlers.

Side Tubes Image

Rigid Side Tubes

The rigid side tubes capped off with a bow-to-stern grommet rail allow paddlers to easily trim their weight in the boat for optimal performance. Put a seat anywhere you deem necessary and even add additional boards for extra passengers or for shifting weight on the fly.

Hybrid Performance Image

Hybrid Performance

The XR Trekking is unique by being designed to paddle with a single-blade paddle or by a double-blade kayak style paddle. Swap out the seat boards with any number of Grabner’s kayak seats and enjoy a day kayaking your favorite lake or estuary.

Grabner’s combination paddle grants you the flexibility of turning two single-blade paddles into one double-blade paddle!

Bailing Holes Image

Self Bailing

The XR Trekking has a bailing sump panel located in the rear of the canoe. This gives you the option to keep the hull sealed or to punch holes to allow water to drain while in whitewater. Holes can be easily resealed with an optional block-off plate.

The Right Paddle, Right Now

Everyone who canoes paddles their own way. It is sometimes an expensive game of trial and error to find the paddle that best fits you and your style. Grabner and Red Beard Sailing have a narrow and specific selection of paddles so that you can determine the right paddle for your needs, the first time.

XR Trekking Single Paddle Accessory Kit


This accessory kit rounds out your new canoe purchase. This kit provides a bag, pump and paddles so you can get on the water and start enjoying your new canoe right away!

Why Red Beard Recommends
This is a baseline accessory kit that will get you up and running as quickly as possible. The paddles are collapsible and everything can store in and on the backpack. The XR Trekking canoe is over 13’ long, so moving it in a wheel bag is always easier on the back than carrying it.

Accessory Kit Includes:
1 Hand Air Pump, 2 Single Blade 3pc Canoe Paddles, 1 Backpack With Wheels, 1 16ft Boat Line, 1 Bottle of Boat Skin Conditioner

XR Trekking Combi-Paddle Accessory Kit


The Combi-Paddle accessory kit is a great starting point for learning what the XR Trekking has to offer. Including all of the necessary bits to get you hurtling down your favorite river or cruising across your favorite lake.

Why Red Beard Recommends
The Combi-paddle can be 2 single blade paddles for when you are out with a friend, but when you want to get upstream (or downstream) faster, this paddle can turn into a double-blade kayak paddle for more power. This is a kit that maximizes utility without breaking the bank.

Accessory Kit Includes:
1 Hand Air Pump, 1 Combi-Paddle, 1 Backpack With Wheels, 1 16ft Boat Line, 1 Bottle of Boat Skin Conditioner
