The boat in the backpack «akiak» is a fast and easy to manoeuvre, one-person kayak for spontaneous short getaways. With its radically reduced shell construction and unique folding method, «akiak» can be assembled at the waters edge in minutes, taking collapsable boats to a new level.
At less than 10kg this boat is easily transported by train, bike or on foot with the use of a purpose built backpack, giving adventurers unlimited possibilities to reach new uncharted waters.
The boat is designed around state of the art textiles and an innovative construction method, making the 3.6m kayak functional and reliable on water.
