Welcome to NERIS UK
Home of NERIS ZELGEAR Water Sports in the UK

Specialising in foldable collapsible boats that comes packed in a backpack bag or two

= Folding kayaks, inflatable kayaks and catarafts =

NERIS / ZELGEAR specialises in watercraft made with high grade aluminum and PVC - folding kayaks, inflatable kayaks and catarafts. All the boats and high grade materials that the boats are made from, are all produced in Europe, with the PVC welding done on quality German made machines. NERIS ZELGEAR also makes PVC inflatable seats, waterproof dry bags, pouches, inflatable tents, inflatable snow sleds, and more.

NERIS ZELGEAR boats has been available for over 13 years mostly in Eastern European countries and Russia through various large retail outlets and as well as being rented out by river tour hire companies, and now an exclusive dealership has opened up here in the UK.

Many of the NERIS products incorporate the 1st in a few designs - NERIS is the 1st with the innovative 'Transformer' Series of folding kayaks, the 1st to produce the fold down 'A' frame sailing masts design for folding kayaks, and ZELGEAR is the 1st to produce the kneeling design on frameless R2 and R4 river running catarafts.

Over that last 16 years, different models and types of NERIS watercrafts have been thoroughly tested and used worldwide, on rivers of varying grades up to Grade 4/5. This is testament to the hard wearing quality of the PVC used for the hulls and a lighter grade for the upper decks plus the PVC welds used in between. NERIS folding kayaks have been used down rapids on the River Nile in Uganda and on freezing waters in Alaska, Norway and Siberia. The catarafts have been tested and used on many white water rivers for many years in Europe, and latterly over the last 2-3 years in Canada and USA.

The streamlined ZELGEAR IGLA series of inflatable kayaks have shown that these boats can complete well against the folding kayaks and even as well as the hard shell kayaks on marathon races.

ZELGEAR have had many years experience in building and developing white water catamaran style rafts, first with aluminum frames securing the two pontoon floats (framed rafts), and latterly joining the floats with air tubes (frameless rafts). The successful and highly sought after R2 and R4 kneeling frameless catarafts are also currently being sold and used in North America under a different Cat names.

If interested in purchasing a foldable craft, contact us via email and we will discuss your needs and take it from there. We want to make sure that you purchase the right boat for your needs before buying!
