Tandem Origami KayakHere’s some fun! Oru Kayak, makers of the original origami-inspired folding kayak, are unveiling the “Haven,” an all new convertible tandem kayak. Oru designers have taken on the challenge to create the company’s largest and most ambitious kayak design yet: a two-person origami-inspired kayak that can quickly and easily convert to single-person occupancy.

The Haven is Oru’s largest kayak design to-date — 20% larger by volume when fully assembled— but only a few inches larger than standard Oru models when folded into a compact box. Oru’s new Haven kayak assembles in approximately 10 minutes, which makes getting on the water with family and friends more convenient than ever. Going from box to boat is simple with the help of intuitive folding patterns and color-coded stitching to mark which straps correspond to which buckles. Converting the kayak from double to single-person occupancy is easy; simply attach the rear footrest to the front of the kayak and reposition the seatback (visual cues printed on the boat help with assembly).

The Haven is equipped with a proprietary and patent-pending universal rail system that runs along the top of the kayak sidewalls. The Haven is also Oru’s most stable boat with a beam measuring 31 inches wide, which leaves plenty of room for extra gear. When folded into a box, the Haven is the world’s only tandem kayak designed to be carried by one person. “Every feature of the Haven has dual purposes,” says Oru Chief Designer and company co-Founder, Anton Willis. When the kayak is fully folded up into its own shell, the two floorboards act as a protective case to hold the Haven together while transporting or storing as a compact box.

Haven will become available for pre-order on Indiegogo on September 17th. Final product is expected to be delivered March, 2019.
