Perception: Horizon Tandem Sea Kayak
broaden your horizons...
This versatile twin-cockpit tandem kayak is perfect for either short trips or multi-day expeditions. The long waterline provides excellent directional stability yet the Horizon is still nimble enough for inland adventures. A high volume bow gives a dry ride even in choppy waters, as it climbs over waves and deflects spray from the cockpit areas.
It's able to cope easily with varied weight distribution between the spacious cockpits, while stowage compartments give plenty of room for two paddlers' kit.
Our popular Zone outfitting system gives full backrest adjustment with a comfortable and supportive fit.

Oru make ingenious folding kayaks inspired by the Japanese art of origami (paper folding). They are lightweight, easy to assemble, and great to use.
The original Oru Kayak, launched on Kickstarter and now in retailers around the world; it’s even the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Oru thoroughly updated the design for 2017, making it even easier to assemble, more comfortable to use, and more graceful than ever. It's stable enough for beginners, while the length and contouring make it fast and sporty for expert kayakers. There's plenty of room to stash gear for day trips and short camping excursions. Best of all, transforming it from box to boat takes just a few minutes.
Many of the changes incorporated on the Oru Bay+ were actually inspired by modifications that fans of the kayak made on the original boat, which they used to identify potential areas of improvement in the design. These changes include a new ergonomic chair with foam seat, along with a high-position backrest and adjustable back support, a huge departure from regular kayaks that offer limited lumbar support. There’s also a screw-out deck hatch for holding extra gear, a waterproof stowing bag, stainless steel ratchet buckles for smoother assembly, and a pair of rubber straps on the deck.
When assembled, the boat measures 12 feet long and over two feet wide, with a cockpit that measures 16 x 30 inches. It can support riders up to 135Kgs.
