This Fully-Inflatable Catamaran Kayak Packs Into A Bag For Convenient Carry

Although kayaking doesn’t require that much equipment, the hobby is hardly what you’d call convenient for the average enthusiast. On the contrary — between the storage, the transport, and the setup required of most hard-shell boats, it’s often enough to turn aspiring paddlers away before they’ve even had a chance to hit the water.

But with the launch of his ‘Super Kayak’ Kickstarter project, London-based designer Kirk Kirchev is hoping to make such concerns a thing of the past. That’s because it features an inflatable design that packs into a bag (along with its included collapsible paddle) for convenient, hassle-free carry. Once it’s time to take it out to sea, simply attach the pump to each hull, secure the aluminum alloy frame, and it’ll be fully assembled in just four minutes. However, this isn’t just some travel-ready rowboat; it’s also made to perform. Proven to be both faster and more stable than traditional kayaks thanks to its pair of polyurethane-coated aramid fiber hulls, it elevates the user above the water by way of a seat and a set of footrests. It measures 12ft long and weighs just 30lbs, with a maximum load rating of 220lbs. You can back it on Kickstarter starting at $1,350.
