NERIS Alu-2
Double seater folding kayak
Detailed Specifications



Kayak
"NERIS Alu-2" - Classic double seater kayak designed to explore the open waterways (lowland rivers, lakes, reservoirs and seas). It is perfect for a paddle for the day, and up to long journeys.

Features
The kayak has a large cargo area in the center of the cockpit, and comes with comfortable one piece inflatable seats with tall backrests. The "NERIS Alu-2" has duralumin frame pieces with brackets made of stainless steel, which significantly improves the kayak's reliability, strength and endurance.

Design

The "NERIS Alu-2" has a simple and reliable design. The boat is easy to assemble, has no short-lived plastic/rubber fasteners in the framework. The frame is made of high quality D16T grade anodized aluminium tubing.
The large cockpit means shorter front and rear decks and hence smaller internal storage spaces within the ends of the kayak. The benefit of this is that the bow and stern spaces is more easily accessible plus the rest of the storage space is actually in the centre of the cockpit with no access restrictions at all. The skin is made entirely of durable PVC which does not absorb water, so after a paddle, simply wipe with a dry cloth and the kayak is ready to be packed. All the cross ribs are of the closed design (closed loop) - EG the front seat uses the cross rib for the back rest support.

Crew
Number of seats - two adults, or optionally two adults and one child. The standard spray cover has 3 cockpit holes, and comes complete with 2 skirts and one cockpit cover (central cockpit hole / cover is the access to the central storage space).
