Materials

The Oru Kayak skin, a double-layered polypropylene formulated to our specifications, is manufacturer-rated for 20,000 fold cycles. It doesn't take a calculator to know that's a lot of days out on the water. The material is tough, resilient, and abrasion-resistant. The two layers offer extra protection and make Oru Kayaks naturally buoyant.

All plastics used in fittings and connections are durable, marine-grade, and UV rated for long life. All metal fasteners are marine-rated stainless steel.

Structure

Oru Kayaks are extremely rigid and sturdy. The patented fold pattern allows the skin to act as a monolithic structural unit, without the need for an internal frame. The skin is folded from a single, seamless sheet. The only seam is on top of the boat, above the waterline and it closes tight with a waterproof seal.

A rigid floorboard reinforces the cockpit (and doubles as the lid of the box). A pair of bulkheads provide extra rigidity. Simple straps and buckles hold everything together.
