Class V North Fork frame

(2 customer reviews)


Frame weight 38lbs. (Stock model)

The North Fork frame was designed to address the following key factors: portability, rowing efficiency, and structural integrity. The engineering of the North Fork frame mimics the house truss design. This gives the frame the ability to cascade energy throughout the frame rather than point loading (energy moving to single points). This design helps avoid breakage and increases the longevity of the frame.
Each frame has 6” of adjustment in the seat plate and 3” in the oar towers. We understand that every person’s body and rowing styles are different. We can customize the cockpit and back bay dimensions to your seating specifications. Lead-times apply. Please give us a call with any questions.
We are always happy to talk river gear.

    Five stars for a really excellent cat frame. I have an 11 foot SOTAR Legend, and the Class V North Fork Frame fits these tubes like they were designed in tandem. Jesse welds an incredibly strong, rigid frame that DOES NOT FLEX – especially when boating the steep stuff (Giant Gap, South Fork Salmon, North Fork Payette), you really don’t want a frame to flex at all. It’s light enough that I can easily carry the frame solo, and even can carry the SOTAR with 3 oars and a repair/first aid kit rigged – it’s not light, but you’re not going to find a frame lighter that is capable of running the unforgiving Class V drops that this frame is made for. Unless you NEED a break-down frame, I can guarantee that you will be very happy with one of Jesse’s North Fork frames – they are truly outstanding.

    I got my frame from Jesse over the summer. What a beautiful piece of craftsmanship ! It rows like a dream, incredibly light, welds are beautiful , I couldn’t ask for more in a creek frame ! Best frame on the market and it’s not even close. Do your self a favor and pick one up you won’t regret it. Turn around was quick and Jesse was very good with communication and had the frame ready when he said it would be ready .
