Introducing the Gremlin! The Newest Member of the Fleet!

Today is an exciting day for us at Folbot.  We are formally releasing the newest member of our fleet, the Gremlin!

The New Gremlin

The Gremlin is the newest addition to our Folbot fleet!

Inspired by the Citibot, the Gremlin is lightweight, ultra-portable and easy to assemble.  At 12 feet long and 27 lbs, it can accommodate larger paddlers and payloads and its length enables it to track more like a touring kayak and get up to speed quickly.  The Gremlin rounds out our offering in the Recreation category and its design incorporates everything we love about the Citibot with the added benefits of a larger kayak.

The Gremlin is beautifully designed to fit in a backpack for easy transport and storage and it assembles quickly so it’s the perfect boat to throw in a car or RV, on a boat or to take with you on a hike, bike or camping trip.

How did we come up with the name?  Well, we wanted something that captured the performance of the boat on the water but also spoke to its manageability on dry land.  It reminded us of some characters we once saw in a movie that were well behaved and fun loving…until they got wet!

To celebrate the release of our latest boat we are having a contest on Facebook.  Please check it out for a chance to win a brand new Gremlin!  

We know once you get a chance to learn more about the Gremlin, you’ll love it as much as we do.  To check out the Gremlin on our website click here.

  1. I’d like to enter the contest. Would love a Gremlin.
    But
    I don’t have a facebook account and will not create one. I get enough junk since I signed up on Linkedin, which I’m going to kill.
    Any way for non-facebookers to play?

    • Hey Flatwater,

      We would love for folks who aren’t on Facebook to be able to enter. Since this is a contest run through Facebook the pictures must be posted on Facebook so what you should do is email us your Will it Fit? photo to info@folbot.com and we will enter it into the contest for you. The only downside is that you won’t be able to vote on it since all votes need to come through Facebook but you will still have a chance to win!

      -Folbot
