Lugging your kayak to a far-away destination for an adventure has always been a hassle – until now. The Oru Kayak, an origami-inspired folding kayak, is here to remedy the woes of water-bound adventurers.
The Oru Kayak folds up in five minutes, with no roof rack, garage or SUV required. Priced at a little over $1,000, the Oru Kayak is designed to make kayaking simple and accessible, so you can spend more time on the water and less time assembling your equipment. It’s extremely lightweight, making it fast and easy to maneuver and steer. The portable kayak is 12 feet long, 25 inches wide and 13 inches high. The kayak carries a one-year warranty on all parts and is fully recyclable. It even costs 70 percent less petroleum to manufacture than a standard kayak.
With normal care, the folding kayak will last for years thanks to the double-layered hull. The origami skin is manufacturer-tested for 20,000 fold cycles without structural failure. The cockpit is reinforced, and the seat and backrest are padded for extra comfort. If you hit a rock, the double-layered skin won’t be torn or ripped. It’s a tough, abrasion- and puncture-resistant material. If the skin dents, you can simply pop it out with your hands.
