NERIS Valkure-3
Triple seater folding kayak
Detailed Specifications


Kayak
"NERIS Valkure-3" - a triple seater kayak based on the classic German design - the largest of the NERIS folding kayaks. This craft has been proven on several low grade white water expeditions as well as being fast in marathon races. Suitable 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 standard sized cockpit, and comes with comfortable one piece inflatable seats with tall backrests. The "NERIS Valkure-3" has wood cross ribs and duralumin longitudinal frame pieces with brackets made of stainless steel, which significantly improves the kayak's reliability, strength and endurance. This kayak can be used as a stable single seater, with the seat centrally positioned.

Design

The "NERIS Valkure-3" has a hybrid frame of a simple and reliable design. The boat is easy to assemble, and now incorporates rubber pole holders in the framework. The frame is made of high quality D16T grade anodized duralumin tubing. The cross ribs are made of high quality marine birch plywood, and is covered with a special coating produced by the Finnish company Tikkurila, which protects the wood against UV radiation, mildew and fungi. 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.
The cross ribs in the cockpit area are of the open design, which means you can sit anywhere within the cockpit.

Crew
Number of seats - three adults or optionally 2 adults and up to 3 children.
