Here I will repost what is already on the Point 65 website: I wanted to love this product because I was after a modular kayak that didn't require so much space but was better than an inflatable - but I ended up hating it! First, like Felicia also says below this is an absolute NIGHTMARE to assemble and take apart - it looks so simple in the corporate videos, it ISN'T :)!! And this is from someone who uses and owns windsurfs, SUP boards, a dinghy etc... Secondly, it is heavy and so you must have a second person with you to carry it once assembled. Finally, it is poorly designed - there is a considerable gap where the 3 sections meet which really affect the aerodynamics of the hull. To top it all up customer service is terrible (I really expected so much more from a Swedish company). So in conclusion - do yourself a favour and try something else - there are many options out there.

We have a family of 7. We can all go paddling thanks to Mercury. Our two kayaks seat 3 each and then oldest child gets solo. Children aged 1,5 to 8 years old. We bought 4 tandems, so later on we have more options. At first the mechanism felt a little bit tricky. Also carrying the pieces is possible for me alone instead of those one-piece long tandems.

The new revolutionary take apart kayak. I had this kayak for over 6 months but so far this kayak has been my travelling companion. This kayak fits perfectly in the back of my Volkswagen Tiguan with the backseat folded down. The solo GTX tracks very well and pretty fast too, The snap tap technology make this easier to assemble and disassemble. And last, you can always add an extra cockpit for more people you wanna go paddling with...
