The Silverbirch Rebel is a modern 11-foot whitewater canoe, just as capable on big volume grade 4 as it is efficient on shallow braided streams and flat sections.
The Rebel has been designed to excel with a wide variety of loads – making it ideal for use on longer trips where you may not only have significant gear to take, but a continually lightening load as the trip goes on.
Silverbirch have worked hard to optimise the secondary stability – this was important feedback from the early prototypes, not in terms of literal stability but in terms of the transition from primary to secondary, and how clearly defined the rail feels as a consequence. The production Rebel 11 not only ‘sits’ naturally on the rail, but has massively boosted secondary stability making it an easy to paddle and confidence inspiring canoe.
The Rebel is available in two construction options:
- Duratough: Silverbirch’s thickness optimised material, which is ideal for all the abuse of modern day creeking.
- Duralite: Silverbirch’s innovative three layer material, which is great for use on bigger volume rivers where stiffness and weight are the primary concerns.
The Rebel comes outfitted with the custom Silverbirch bulkhead saddle made from 30kgm3 density minicell foam.
The saddle is fitted as standard with Yakima footrests. At the request of their customers, the footrests are now fixed to the saddle with bonded 40mm polyethylene dowels to ensure maximum durability.
A fitting kit including foam sidewalls, foam shims, glue, sandpaper and a surf-form is supplied to allow you to customise your boat to your needs, the second it arrives.

“Whether you are looking for more speed from your OC1 or a natural transition from your traditional canoe, the Rebel is the boat for you.”
James Dennis – Silverbirch canoes director
“This is a glorious boat! Silverbirch have really outdone themselves. This boat will be at home on any moving water, and won’t even be too objectionable on the flats.”
Phillip Prince – Silverbirch ambassador and test pilot
“The Rebel is fast, nimble, dry, and made of high quality PE, so it can make those big water moves and take a beating in the creeks!”
Jerrod Jones – Silverbirch ambassador and test pilot
