ORU KAYAK

FROM BOX TO BOAT IN MINUTES

Best Folding Kayak

We create the world’s most cutting-edge, portable boats—a folding kayak fleet crafted with simplicity, freedom, and delight as our guiding principles. Our kayaks are easily storable and space-efficient, yet they never sacrifice durability or performance. They are not only pleasing to the eye but also excel on the water. A decade of rigorous testing and design has led to the development of our Origami technology and the use of robust, custom-extruded corrugated material known as OruPlast™, demonstrating our commitment to innovation and quality.

Lake & Lake+ Comparison

Watch as our chief designer, Anton Willis, shows us the difference between the standard Lake and the Lake+ package. The Lake is our simplest, lightest, most accessible kayak ever. The Lake+ has all the standard Lake features but it’s upgraded to be more comfortable and adjustable to fit your size.

The Essence of Origami

Clean and minimal lines evoke the purity and elegance of folded paper. The Lake pays homage to our origami roots in its simple and ease-to-use design.

Small and Mighty

Foldable, portable, storable. Our smallest model with the same materials and durability of our expedition models to keep you kayaking summer after summer. All of our kayaks are made from a custom extruded, UV-treated plastic called OruPlast™.

Simple and Easy

We set out to eliminate everything extra – to capture the simplicity and elegance of origami in every line and curve. Fold out, buckle in and you’re good to go. The Lake only has one removable part.

DURABILITY

Oru Kayaks are made from a custom polypropylene, with a 10 year UV treatment, and a 20,000 fold cycle rating! While the hull is designed to take a beating, we suggest you treat your kayak like a fiberglass boat

PERFORMANCE

The Lake is designed for flat water. Oru Kayaks use origami to deliver great tracking and stability. The lightweight materials make folding kayak handling easy and responsive.

PORTABILITY

The Lake’s fold pattern focuses on efficiency and will streamline your entire kayaking experience, from box to boat to water and back. Every fold was designed to nest and fit perfectly, eliminating wasted space and make the smallest box possible.

The fully adjustable folding kayak backrest provides support and comfort for paddlers of all sizes. It can be lowered to accommodate a spray skirt.
