Argo – That’s what they called the incredible fast ship of the Argonauts in Greek mythology. The most famous 50 heroes lead by Jason went on their big journey to bring back the “Golden Fleece”. On that occasion they had to endure a lot of adventures in which the ship always played a big role. Thanks to its robustness and speed a lot of obstacles could be overcome and the mission finally was brought to a successful ending.
Following that the nortik argo 2 was designed as a fast and sleek sea kayak. It is the world`s only closed-deck two-seater folding kayak available with a 100% water tightness. This is particularly beneficial when you have extensive coastal trips or trips on large inland waters on the program. The optional sea sock also prevents dirt, sand and / or salt water from entering the boat. At the same time, in the case of capsizing, it ensures safety by preventing the boat from running with water. In this situation, you only have to empty the sea sock, not the whole kayak. With the optionally available lightweight and absolutely sealed Thermal PU spray skirt and the rudder system, the sleek argo 2 becomes a great expedition boat for open water.
The robust boat skin is made of our proven PVC/PU-mixture the kayak has installed keel strips as a standard. In order to keep the weight as low as possible, aluminum was the first choice for the frame. This requires a little more care in the use of salt water (keyword "CorroFilm"), but is also significantly lighter and also smaller in pack size. As with all the boats from nortik the argo 2 is packed in only one backpack and its weight is incredible with 28 kg. The comfortable seats can be adjusted at the sides and bottom. With a length of 610 cm and a width of 69 cm, the focus of the argo 2 is clearly on the straight run.
Standard equipment includes Packing bag that can be used as a backpack, 2 loading hatches, seats, installed keel strips, Lifeline and D-rings on deck, Thigh braces, deck lining, Multifunction mount (e.g. for the nortik kayak sail system or a light), Repair kit.
Perfect accessories complete the range. There is a spray skirt and sea sock available. Both made of Thermal-PU that keeps you dry, is light-weight and robust. A rudder system can be installed, too. The nortik kayak sail system fits on the argo 2, if you want to use the wind for your next paddling trip. Please note that an aluminium frame has to be protected against salt water, if you use the boat in the sea. The protection is called CorroFilm and available at your dealer. With that you have no worries in salty water.
In sum, the argo 2 is a great expedition folding kayak with an up-to-date shape, less weight and a perfect packing size. If you don`t go on big expedition, it is also allowed to use it in a recreational way – no worry!
