Whether you are relatively new to kayaking or you're an experienced kayaker, we have built a kayak and a set of programs that will help you go further...and there's a story on how we got here.
We find ourselves in a bizarre situation at the moment, and we have some time to think, regroup and reset. We are all being instructed to "stay at home", and your normal life may not be the same as it was just a week ago. As our Great Mother has a moment (in time) to exhale, we too have space to do something. We can sit around and wait, or we can get into action and focus on our own health and vitality. At TRAK, we think paddlers need to connect with raw nature and with other paddlers at this time. We also think that we can be a beacon for tools and training that can help people build their own paths within a paddling lifestyle.
If you are new to kayaking, we have developed a series called 3 Steps to Kayaking. Get the guide and access to our TRAK Pilot Ambassadors through some video gatherings that we'll be doing over the next few weeks.
For experienced kayakers, we are working on a project (collectively with our paddlers globally) called 3 Keys to Avoiding Deep Trouble (in a sea kayak). This is a call-out to all experienced paddlers to join this pursuit. There are great things to learn with a confluence of experienced kayakers globally and building the TRAK community. We also think that there is a strength in numbers, and want those that are drawn to it to help us grow the paddling market and get more people on the water.
Over the last two years we had an overwhelming response to our TRAK 2.0 kayak and it pushed the boundaries of our production capabilities, with corresponding ripple effects. The end result being that our pre-order delivery times had, until recently been targeted for late 2020 for delivery on boats pre-ordered in early 2020. With the current situation, this is expected to shift to February or March 2021.
As a result of this long "gestation" period and our current dynamics globally, we felt it only fair consideration for the wait to offer a really good Early-Bird opportunity. We are opening up a window for pre-ordering, which includes a very nice discount in consideration of the wait.
The other reason it's a great time to pre-order is that we have made slight but key improvements over the earliest production from our crowdfunding stage, and have worked out our production hiccups and are now in a full-scale roll-out of the ultimate touring kayak, as well as innovative accessories and gear to equip your adventures.
In the meantime, we have a lot of preparations and training for you to engage in, as well as plug into the resources, community and amazing team of TRAK Pilots and Owners we have globally. The commitment is to have you feel confident and competent when you receive your kayak. Plan, prepare and unleash with your own ultimate touring kayak!
