The Inlet is the lightest, most portable, and easiest to assemble folding kayak YET – an origami kayak for everyone. Designed for flat water, it’s playful and light – and ridiculously fast to assemble. With the smallest box of any of our models, you can store it just about anywhere. Kayak Austin today in style at Lady Bird Lake or Lake Austin.
A 9’8″ kayak that folds down to an unbelievably compact box. At 20 pounds, this origami kayak weighs half of a traditional kayak. It’s compact enough to store in your car trunk (two even!), or anywhere else. It tracks and handles far better than inflatable kayaks. With the Oru Pack, you can even check it on a plane or hike it anywhere.
It’s stable, but also nimble and playful. It’s intended for use in calm water – think mirror-smooth lakes, rivers, and streams. Its large, open cockpit is perfect for paddles with a dog or small child – perfect for first-time paddlers and beginners, but great for anyone who wants a boat on the go.
Our boats are lightweight and extraordinarily strong. They’re created from 5mm double-layered, custom-extruded polypropylene with a 10-year UV treatment. Translation? Oru Kayak boats are puncture + abrasion resistant and built to last. With proper care, they can withstand sliding over rocks, bumping into obstacles, and folding up tens of thousands of times.
