Octo.puz

Octo.Puz is a folding single kayak especially designed for daring athletes. It can be transported by bicycle which makes it easy to travel close to nature, perfect for rivers and lakes. It is even possible to transport a folding bicycle with it, so you could ride to the shore, assemble the Octo.Puz, cross the water and continue the ride on the other side. The kayak has enough space for some luggage and can be assembled without tools in about ten minutes. The single segments are held together by quick clamps, the tarpaulin is made of waterproof ripstop-nylon. If you bring a bicycle with carrier and a folding paddle you are all set for the nature trip!
