MODULAR KAYAKS | POINT 65
Point 65 is a Swedish company that invests a lot of passion into kayaking. These guys obviously enjoy this and their ever growing team is packed with kayaking devotees. They love it so much that they wish to make it available for just about anyone out there, or as they say ‘We at Point 65 realize that no kayak model suits everyone. We are all so different, with such varying objectives, tastes and ambitions, skills and comfort levels on and off the water.’
Their Modular Kayaks make the transport of these usually large vessels easy for everyone. Their new snap tap technology is the answer for the transportation problem. The kayak is consisted of several separate pieces that are easy to attach as well as to disassemble. Simply snap the parts together for a fun exploration of open waters, or snap them apart to pack them in your car, or store them. This characteristic added another very useful feature.
The kayaks are highly customizable, which means that you do not have to buy a kayak for various occasions. You can simply customize the one you already have. For example, a simple addition in the middle transforms a single seat kayak into a tandem.
The Modular Kayaks also have two separate compartments for storing equipment and keeping it safe and dry, as well as cup holders to be used in calmer conditions.
This kind of a design does not affect functionality of the vessel in any way, but it ensures easy transportation and so far unseen versatility. The price reflects this as well. Depending on the parts you wish to purchase it ranges from $350 for the entry level option and goes all the way up to $1,800 for all of the available parts combined.
If you like the easy transport but have no use of the versatility, we have presented another option here – the Oru Kayak inspired by origami which folds into a simple case that you can carry around. On the other hand, if you are a bit more adventurous, we see no better option than the Point 65’s Modular Kayaks. watch video below
