Canoe That Can Be Folded Into The Bag

Posted March 14, 2017

Casual Canoe boats are big and bulky that can’t be transported via regular car. MyCanoe is foldable like origami and can be carried into a couple of bags. 

It’s main body is made of 5-mm double-layer UV-treated polypropylene, which is good for about 20,000 fold cycles. The package includes plastic and aluminum pieces such as gunwales, end caps and ribs with total weight of 24 kg and size of 4.5 m when folded out. Maximum capacity of carried passengers combined is 200kg.

The prototype was designed at 2015 and just recently become the subject of a Kickstarter campaign. It can be seen in use, in the video below.
