TRION / Kite Kayak


The kitekayak TRION combines the seekayak with a sort of a trimaran and the rasant flexibility of a kite parachute. Seat - position and lower body can be compared to the surf -
The novelty is the folding mechanism that enables the front part of the kayak to be made collapsible in parts to the sides.
Through this process TRION will be much schorter and gains a lot of width.
TRION is now ready for the power of the kite. The kite - parachute will be fixed to the support - arch over the hatch. For paddle - power with retracted jibs the support - arch will be removed and placed in the baggage - space.
