O Six Hundred Kayak

Aug 11, 2015

Category: Rides

The first kayaks were made out of stretched animals skins over wood, which is where this O Six Hundred Kayak got its inspiration from. No, it’s not actually made with stretched animal skins, but instead uses a translucent carbon fabric.

This Australian kayak is made up of 30 pieces of hoop pine plywood, which is light yet unbelievably strong. Pieces are snapped together quickly and easily, no allen key required. After the wood skeleton is built, the translucent carbon fabric is laced up over it. The kayak measures nearly 12 feet in length, and it’s total weight is just 10 kgs. It’s a stylish ode to the 4,000 year old kayak designs that you will be proud to own. You can buy one now for $2,000. [Purchase]
