Napali Foldable Clear Kayak
Explore the sea bottom wherever you like
The holidays are here at last and you have every intention to make the most out of them! You and your friends have planned to spend a few days at a lovely beach house where you will be able to breathe some fresh air and disconnect from daily routine.
The crystal clear water lets you easily spot all sorts of fish from the seashore and one of your friends says: “Wouldn't it be great to get a vessel? But where could we get it?”
This is your moment to shine with a surprise; it's time to show your newest acquisition: a foldable kayak... And it's transparent!
Your friends are truly speechless, they are simply fascinated how you have suddenly turned the inside of your backpack into this unique kayak. You place it in the water and voilà - magic! Now it's time to enjoy!
This unique kayak called Napali (in honor to the coast of Kauai Isle), is made of Kevlar, a lightweight highly resistant corrosion-free material. Only weighing 11kgs, folded it can be placed in a hiking backpack, so you can take it wherever you want.
The innovative product has been awarded with a wide variety of prizes at an international level, such as Best Product by Fortune magazine or Best Invention by Time magazine. It has also been nominated to the SGMA, the Oscars of the sports industry.
Designed by New Zealander Murray Broom, Napali is considered something more than a kayak. It is an inspiring piece of art, being one of the artworks exposed at the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA).
The Napali masterpiece is supported by a high-tech, durable and corrossion-resistant internal carbon Kevlar frame system that comes equipped with a transparent urethane skin. The leading-edge innovation allows the kayak to fold up small enough to fit into a hiking backpack. This makes Napali the ideal kayak for long-distance touring, country kayaking and holiday travels that require easy transport.
One may think that the high functionality and lightweight character of the boat were built at the expense of design. The Napali even offers extraordinary visual appeal with an elegant presence in the world of kayaking. Its soft curves and its body radiate pure dynamic energy. The kayak is made in a craftsmanship way and all details are taken into account in its construction.
Experience a new exhilarating way of kayaking with Napali.
