Unfortunately I won’t be buying the Citibot folding kayak even though I really want one, the weight limit is about 210lbs and I weigh a spritely 235lbs. Some things just weren’t meant to be.
But don’t let that stop you, this thing is amazing, it folds up into a convenient backpack and weighs less than 25lbs. Amazing… read on for more details, pictures, and video after the break.
Trying to get a full sized kayak to some of the best streams and rivers is often difficult or nearly impossible. The Citibot folding kayak can be carried (in it’s own carry bag) to just about anywhere you want to go. The assembled kayak is ten feet long and takes about 10 minutes to put together.
The latest foray for long established US kayak manufacturer Folbot, the Citibot also features a newly designed seat with inflatable adjustable firmness, with the seat frame providing structural support for the cockpit. Available in eight colors, the Citibot provides a nifty solution for those enthusiasts lacking either the storage space for a traditional watercraft or the means to transport it.
The Citibot is available from the Folbot website from around US$1200.
