The Bay ST

Notify me when this product is available:

The Bay ST is the original Oru Kayak, launched on Kickstarter in 2012. It’s even in the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. With their newest iteration Oru Kayak have added a bunch of great features to the product — a closed-cockpit performance kayak that's sporty, versatile, and light. They've made it even more durable, with new aluminum cockpit latches and extra-reinforced strap anchor points. Its updated print pattern is all about going back to their origami roots. The Bay ST is built for a wide variety of water types and conditions and holds enough gear for overnight trips.
