Klepper's solar-powered E-Kayak gives your arms a rest - Images

That's why Klepper offers paddlers the benefit of a solar-powered electric drive in its E-Kayak kit. The paddler can kick back and let the small motor take over the forward-floating load. The design adds a little modern-day technology and convenience to Klepper's classic folding kayak. View all In 1905, a German architecture student named Alfred Heurich built a folding wooden-frame kayak he named Dolphin. While it has a history like no other kayak manufacturer, Klepper doesn't rest solely on its reputation and past benchmark products, continuing to innovate and redefine the sport.
