We are proud to be able to
say that our top model Napali is not only the sole transparent
foldable kayak in the world; it is also among the very
lightest, weighing only 26 lbs. The Napali masterpiece
is an unrivaled blend of function and style. Voted by
Fortune magazine as the top outdoor product of the year
2003 and by Time magazine as one of the coolest inventions
of 2003, it was also nominated for the prestigious SGMA
award Sports Product of the Year 2004, the
Academy Award of the sporting goods industry.
The Napali is supported by a high-tech, durable and corrosion-resistant internal
Carbon Kevlar frame system that comes equipped with a transparent military-grade
Urethane skin, keeping the weight at a minimum. The leading-edge innovation allows
the kayak to fold up small enough to fit into a hiking backpack, yet still offer
the endless possibilities for discovery that transparent kayaks give. This makes
the Napali the ideal kayak for long-distance touring, backcountry kayaking and
vacational travels that require easy transport.
One may think that the high functionality and light weight of the boat were built
at the expense of design. However, when you look at the Napali, youll soon
forget the meaning of the word compromise. The Napali even offers
extraordinary visual appeal with a dazzling look and graceful, elegant presence
that is unparalleled in the world of kayaking. The sleek lines and soft curves
of its streamlined body radiate pure dynamic energy, even when the Napali is
only hanging on its rack, motionless. Outstanding quality and craftsmanship can
be seen and felt in every detail of the Napalis construction.
What has been accomplished in the engineering of the Napali is a new, fully versatile
breed of kayak that is exceptional from any perspective. Clarity is its core,
intelligent design its gift. It is not without a cause that the Museum of Modern
Art in NYC decided to feature the Napali as a permanent piece of exhibition starting
in Fall 2004.
