Product Description

TRAK's T-1600 performance folding kayak is one of a kind. If you think you need to compromise performance to get your kayak to unique paddling locations, think again. TRAK’s rigid, adaptable hull gives optimal performance in various paddling conditions and for diverse skill levels (beginner to expert). And it only takes 10 minutes to assemble right from your closet. How is this all possible? Experience it yourself…


The world's only performance kayak that fits in a pack, the Trak T-1600 is truly one of a kind. The kayak is defined by its rigid, adaptable hull, which includes hydraulics inside the cockpit that let you instantly shift the hull's shape. By pulling or releasing the handling, you can adjust the hull to track quickly, to turn effortlessly, or to neutralize a cross wind without a rudder.

The kayak includes 3 hydraulic jacks so you can adjust the shape of the hull.
The hydraulic system, known as the Tri-active Performance System (TPS), makes the T-1600 suitable for multiple paddling conditions and diverse skill sets (beginner to expert). No more choosing between a kayak designed for speed and one that turns easily, because the T-1600 does both. The kayak is also extremely portable, with a design that goes from pack to water--or back again--in 10 minutes or less. The kayak breaks down into eight pieces: a stern frame section, a bow frame section, a PolyTrak shell, TPS jacks, an ultra-strong coaming, a command seat, float bags, and a neoprene spray skirt. Using a simple, intuitive process, the eight pieces come together in seven quick steps. And when it's time to pack up your gear, the kayak fits in an airport-friendly, trunk-sized Ogio pack that measures 52 by 17 by 15 inches (W x H x D).

The kayak's command seat is stable and comfortable.
From a durability standpoint, the T-1600 is tough as nails. The DuraTrak frame is made of aerospace-grade anodized aluminum for strength, lightness, and rigidity. In addition, all the tubing is connected with shock-cording, and the ribs and bow/stern plates in each section are attached to prevent loose pieces. The kayak's exclusive, expedition-grade PolyTrak shell is also completely waterproof, as well as virtually puncture-proof and abrasion-resistant. Add in a custom polyurethane material and indestructible welded seams and you have the toughest and most durable kayak on the market. The sturdy construction gives paddlers the option of handling rough seas and rivers (Class 4), and the confidence to tread any rocky shore.

Finally, the T-1600 includes a couple of handy convenience features: a storage system built into the hull and a comfortable command seat. The Keder storage system is an aluminum extrusion on a track that provides quick and easy access to your gear without the hassle of leaky, failing hatches. When opened, it provides complete access to the ample storage cavity inside the stern, but when closed, it provides a fail-safe watertight seal. The seat, meanwhile, is locked into the frame and coaming to provide all the stability and control a performance kayak seat should offer. The command seat also includes a padded cushion and an adjustable backrest.

I ordered a Trak T-1600 in the dead of winter after only doing online research. YouTube videos showing its use in whitewater were a great help in in reassuring me that the Trak was more capable as a kayak than I was as a paddler. My intended use was for flat water, but I still was interested in the Trak features and needed a portable kayak that I could take along in a 5th wheel camper.

My first look at it confirmed that the quality of all the parts was first class. I was especially impressed with the skin. I beleive it to be the best on the market after comparing it with others at canoe and kayak shows. The assembly process is straightforward and becomes second nature with practice. The hydraulic pumps are a brilliant way to set the tension of the hull. But that's not all as they allow this to be a shape shifting kayak while on the water. This amazing feature allows a paddler to adapt to changing weather conditions or to differing bodies of water as needed. So, if you are looking for a high performance portable kayak take a serious look at the Trak T-1600. It's a uniquely capable and beautiful kayak.

It took me a lot more than the ten minutes advertised to get going the first time I took this out, but it's probably not a bad estimate after a few tries. The hardware is light in weight, but seems solid and dependable. The one I had had been used a fair amount, but seemed in good structural shape. It handled the surf off of Oahu's windward shore just fine and Felt fine making a surf landing onto a mixed beach of sand and rocks. I'm used to inflatable kayak surf sandings, bouncing off of the beach and bounding up again. This was a different experience, and I might have swam in towing the kayak if I had thought it through ahead of time.

Anyway, beautiful kayak, solidly built, reasonably transportable with a car (it was a bit hard to manage on the bus), capable of quite rough water, in fact probably much more capable than I am, and probably pretty good for the (substantial!) cost. Bang for the buck is difficult to evaluate when you get into several thousand dollars for a kayak, really depends on whether you need/want the features/robustness or would be just as happy with something lesser but still functional. Ford versus Jaguar.

Color Name: Green Verified Purchase
Amazon was offering a huge discount on the (discontinued?) green model over the Thanksgiving weekend, so I took the plunge. That was actually my preferred color, so good luck there.

Took the Trak out for a long paddle today and I was completely satisfied with its performance. With its hard chines, the hull reminded me of a Current Designs Caribou, both in looks performance. Smooth glide and plenty fast. The seat and cockpit were more comfortable than any other kayak I've ever owned, but it might simply be a good match for me (5'11, 190 pounds).

Today I assembled the boat in my garage for the first time and used my bicycle and a light-weight bike trailer to haul the Trak 6 blocks down a steep hill to the bay and back, with no problems whatsoever, even when hauling the boat back up the hill. With this set-up, I can haul the boat assembled or simply load the entire kit bag on the trailer for a ride down to the beach.

The quality of the materials and workmanship is impressive. Based on the older assembly/disassembly video, it looks like the newer version of the boat has some improvements, including custom nylon bags to hold and organize the most critical components. The Trak assembles and disassembles much faster than my old Feathercraft and the good folks at Trak provides plenty of detailed guidance (video and lengthy written documentation, along with a quick cheat sheet). Surly Trak must have borrowed some ideas from other folding kayak makers, but they've made some significant improvements. I have no idea who the crazy designers and engineers might be, but hats off to all you geniuses.

So, who needs this boat? If you're like me, you travel a great deal for work and sometimes have lengthy stays away from home.

Color Name: Yellow
A friend let me try of one of these recently.

It seems overall a very nice boat. I am just docking a star because of my own difficulty rolling it.

It assembled easily and securely with some coaching about tips. The construction and materials seem solid and high quality.

It was a very nice boat, handled well, easy to keep on an edge and it was a cool feature to be able to adjust the rocker while in it.

I would appreciate a more whitewater-type of outfitting like Wilderness Systems has in their boats. Lose the hard plastic seat back and get a flexible back band. More padding around the knees and more substantial thigh braces. These are all modifications I would add if I were to own one.

I just need to get more comfortable with my forward finishing rolls if I want one of these. I can roll almost anything (various whitewater boats, my 16.5' Tempest, an 18' QCC 700x, my boyfriend's Looksha with a cut down seat back, etc) But I couldn't get this boat up with a standard layback Greenland roll. The back deck is just way too high for that. I even tried adding a booster cushion under my seat, to no avail.

Since a layback is my current go-to roll in a pinch (I paddle sea kayaks with a Greenland paddle), I won't be buying one of these unless / until I dial in my forward-finishing rolls.
