NERIS Folding Kayak Series

The NERIS folding kayak range
(The NERIS hybrid kayak range is listed here)
(Key differences between all the Series explained here)

There are two distinct Series in the NERIS folding kayak range - ALU and VALKURE Series. Both series have a double seater and a triple seater version kayak. The ALU Series also have a single seater - the Valkure Series Valkure-1 was discontinued in 2018.

A main key design of the NERIS folding kayaks that differs to most other branded folding kayaks is that the NERIS kayaks have shorter front / rear decks and long open cockpits. Other branded kayaks typically have the proportions the other way round - long front / rear decks with a shorter cockpit length. Hence the Neris design is better suited for small families - there is more seating capacity compared to other branded kayaks of similar boat length.

Alu Series are kayaks that have all the frames pieces made of dura aluminium. The Alu Series are also 'Transformer' kayaks which means that with an additional Transformer Kit, a different length Alu Series kayak can be assembled and be used instead. EG - an 3 seater NERIS Alu-3 plus a Transformer Kit T3-1 will create an NERIS Alu-3 or a single seater NERIS Alu-1 at a minimal extra cost. The bigger kayak has all the required frame parts needed to make the smaller version Alu kayak - all that is required is the smaller sized skin. Different Transformer kits are available to cater for all possible permutations to make your secondary Alu Series kayak larger or smaller. For more information on the Transformer concept - see the Transformer Kits page.
A feature of the multi-seater Alu models is that the extra space designated for storage within the central portion of the open cockpit, can optionally be used to seat a small child.

Valkure Plus Series are kayaks made with a hybrid frame and have bow-to-stern air sponsons. The hybrid frame has marine grade plywood cross ribs, with the rest of the kayak frame pieces in all dura aluminium. The pair of sponson air tubes which are fitted to the inside of the one piece kayak skin allows for quicker kayak assembly, provides in-built buoyancy, slightly more stability, and a higher weight loading limit. These Valkure Series kayaks are also designed to handle river rapids up to Grade 3 and are easier to maintain after usage in salty water.

Package Deals are available that includes a spray deck cover, waist skirt/s, cockpit cover/s, and a rudder / steering system. See Package Deals.
