Are SMART's / SMART PRO'S
100% inflatable kayaks?
No, they are not!
The SMART's are hybrid folding kayaks with oversized "external" sponsons whilst still having a skeletal frame. Some folding kayaks have sponsons which are actually internal and hence are not readily visible. This article explains a bit more about the structural differences
between the different folding kayak types and the disadvantages of 100% inflatable kayaks

the main beneficial features that the Neris kayaks have,
to most other branded touring folding kayaks, is that NERIS boats have
long open cockpits with shorter front / rear decks. This design
allows for easy access to stowed kit, with most of the storage being within the open cockpit space.
For example - The open cockpit storage space in double / triple
seater kayaks is a space in front of the rear paddler. On single seater kayaks, the main cockpit storage space is behind the paddler's seat.
Spray deck covers are available with loading hatches to access the cockpit storage spaces.
The central storage space can be utilized
as an extra seating position for a small child or dog. No modifications needed for extra seats
The Neris Valkure-2 folding kayak is an exception - this model has the traditional kayak of long decks and no storage space between the two seats
