Collapsible Carbon-framed Kayak

Posted July 13, 2017

Canadian company Trak introduced to collapsible touring kayak, that is made of of carbon fiber, aluminum and polyurethane. It is 4.9 meters long and uses carbon fiber ribs in the frame, helping to cut weight down to 19 kg. That frame has aluminum beams, slides inside a tough, military-grade polyurethane skin, and a hydraulic jack tensioning system. It packs down into a 104 x 48 x 23 cm roller case, weighing a total of 24 kg. It takes about 10 minutes to build the boat up from pack to water. Internal adjustment hardware lets you alter the waterline and rocker, tuning the ride to water conditions. It is designed for paddlers between 45 to 100 kg.

Trak has turned to Kickstarter to raise funding, enjoying immediate success by reaching its goal. The video shows a closer look at the Trak 2.0 getting around on and off water.
