The nortik fold 4.2 is a “folding kayak” in the true sense of the word. It consists of a single solid plate and can easily be folded into itself entirely in the style of the origami technique. This is the nortik fold. The fold 4.2 has a length of 420 cm and is robust because of its solid material. There is not such a danger to damage the material by fold it wrong and there is no possibility to get water into the material and it is nearly free of maintenance. The folding technique is simple and the kayak is ready for use in less than 5 minutes.
The nortik fold follows a revolutionary origami concept of having your portable kayak ready in less than a few minutes and go on the water wherever you want. There are only a few parts to put together and your fold is ready to use. Disassembled you can store your nortik fold easily wherever you have a small place for it. You don’t need a garage or a place at your canoe club. It also fits in your car or you can use the comfortable backpack function of the storage bag and go by train, bus or even walk to the place you want to go on the water. Is has hardly been easier to be active on the water with your own kayak.
The solid material allows us to install things as you might be used to it from hard-shell kayaks. Parts can be riveted or screwed on it without problems. This special material is made especially for the nortik fold. It doesn’t brake if it gets cold nor does the sun and UV rays have an impact on it when you use the boat in summer. It can be folded several thousand times without problems and can easily be cleaned once it got dirty. It is an innovative, never-seen before material in the field of folding kayaks with an elegant appearance.
After a long time, Nortik has found a material mixture which has the necessary characteristics: robust, UV-resistant, cold-resistant, and the best: extremely tough. The robust solid material (no hollow chambers!) also allows installations like the ones used by hard-shell kayaks. This material mixture - it is called nortilen - is made especially for the nortik fold in the necessary widths and lengths. No chambers inside, hardly possible wrong foldings and no permanent dirt formation. The ideal material for an origami-style kayak!
The nortik fold can be folded a thousand times along the hinges and the kayak can be cleaned easily if it gets dirty. The especially manufactured material is innovative and unique in the area of the folding and origami kaykas and also has a very elegant appearance. The concept was also designed to ensure the highest possible environmental compatibility. In addition to a raw material-efficient production, the full recyclability is an important factor for us. For some components we also use already recycled material.
The nortik fold 4.2 is 100% handmade and carefully produced. This guarantees a great workmanship and quality.
