SAN FRANCISCO, CA The 2014 ISPO Product of the Year, the Oru Kayak, uses a brilliantly innovative, origami-inspired design to transform from a compact suitcase into an elegant, high-performance 12 foot boat. Now in the second year of production, the Oru Kayak is changing the way people explore the outdoors and experience nature. Originally conceived as a kayak for urban apartment dwellers, the Oru Kayak can be stored and transported anywhere, and the applications for it are endless. Paddlers can keep an Oru Kayak in the trunk of the car for spur of the moment expeditions or hike it through the backcountry to remote waters. And, it can be or checked on airplanes as luggage, carried on the back of a bicycle, or transported by train or bus. The Oru Kayak has won widespread praise not just for its clever design and unique capacity to fold up, but also for its on-the-water performance.
