The Tequila! GTX offers a new level of innovation for recreational kayaks. Created by award-winning design engineer Magnus de Brito, Point 65 launches the Tequila! A fun, versatile and high-performance kayak that, due to its modularity, is exceptionally easy to carry, store, and haul. The revolutionary solo or tandem combination is the solution you were waiting for. The Point 65 Snap-TAP technologies are protected under US and European patents.
With its new tracking keel the Tequila! GTX paddles straight as an arrow. With Point 65 ́s innovative patented Snap-Tap solution, the single-seater snaps apart and re-assembles in seconds for a kayak that is safe, stable, and strong making it by far the most lightweight kayak on the market. The Tequila! is a rigid high-performance kayak that you can carry with a smile on your face, put inside most cars, and store under your bed.
Ultimate seat comfort
The Tequila! GTX is equipped with a super- comfortable AIR seat. The AIR seat, with a pneumatically adjustable backrest, gives the paddler an extremely comfortable and perfectly adjustable seating position. The seat covers are made of highly durable and comfortable, honey-comb patterned mate- rial in combination with mesh-like fabric which is laminated and molded over EVA foam.
Award winning innovation & design
The Tequila! has received numerous awards for its innovative take-a-part solution and design. Popular Science, one of the worlds largest publications awarded the Tequila! with its prestigeous "Best of What's New 2010" Award. ISPO - the biggest sports product show in the world - awarded the Tequila! with "ISPO Brandnew" finalist award. The Tequila! has also received the renowned design award Red Dot.
Solo or tandem - all in one
The Tequila! GTX is designed with both kids and adults in mind. Whether paddling, fishing or just relaxing, this stable, strong and high- performance kayak is the ideal choice for family fun on the water. Get the extra mid section and there will be no need to buy two kayaks. Snap in the mid-section and your single seater is transformed into a high-performance tandem, so you can bring a friend. The record so far? LL.Bean put together a 100-man kayak using the Point 65 Tequila! for their 100-year anniversary event. Never before has a kayak been so much fun and so easy to own.
In fact, the only thing you’ll need to worry about is deciding whom to bring.
