A Kayak That Folds Like Origami

Goes From the Box to the Water in Minutes

We’ve done plenty of innovating over the years- we’ve introduced four models for different paddlers and types of water. Now we’re putting all that practice to work- to make the most accessible kayak in the world.

To do this, we had to start from the bottom. Let’s walk you through it.

New Origami Fold Pattern
We wanted to push all of Oru’s key attributes- portability, weight, foldability- to the absolute max. Instead of a suitcase sized box, what about a handbag size? Could we get it under 20 pounds? How many steps could we cut out of the a*sembly process?

And of course, it had to be a blast in the water- solid, stable and lively. Oh, and it had to be sleek and beautiful- we think a 10 foot kayak should still have sweet lines and curves.

To do all of this, we had to go back to the basics of origami- and develop a SHINY. NEW. FOLD PATTERN. Every crease was designed from scratch, through dozens of paper and cardboard models. Every fold had to be designed to nest and fit perfectly, to eliminate wasted space and make the smallest box possible.

When we started the project, we had no idea if all of this was possible. But we kept pushing to make something AMAZING. We hope it’ll kindle your sense of adventure, get you to your happy place, and just plain knock your socks off.
