Onak Suitcase Canoe

If you’d asked us how large we thought the market for city-dwellers who loved kayaking was, we’d probably have erred on the smaller side. After watching more than a few companies pop up over the past few months however, it’s pretty obvious we would’ve been wrong. Onak is the newest among that cohort, and their approach is distinct from others so far.

Essentially what they’ve built is a canoe that can fold up into a rollaway suitcase allowing you the ability to both store it easily and move it around the most crowded parts of the city. To test their design after two years of different iterations, the founders took the Onak all across Europe while using only public transportation and it was just as easy to bring along on buses, trains, and subways as it was to paddle around rivers in the UK and Belgium. Made from a super tough composite material, this functions just as well as any other common vessel and takes just minutes to assemble and disassemble with included straps and seats paddles. Prices start at just over $1,100. [Purchase]
