NERIS Alu-2 500 - Owner - Jordan Newman-Beckett - July 2016

NERIS Alu-2 folding kayak
Living in a small house in a city, size and transportability were my main concerns when buying a canoe. After doing some online research I decided to go for a Neris as they seemed to offer the best quality kayaks within my price range.

I ended up going for the Neris Alu-2 500 (the lightest two man canoe) package including paddles, spray decks and rudder. Once it arrived in the UK Simon Bolze delivered it to my house where he went through the construction of it with me, which took about 30 minutes. The first time I tried to construct it by myself it took longer - about 50 minutes! - but since then I've got it down to around half an hour.

The first time I took it out on the water I was struck by how lightweight and manoeuvrable it was and I've since comfortably paddled it solo when loaded up. I was also pleased by how stable it felt in the water as this was one of my concerns with buying a fold up. Overall I found the construction high quality and design very intuitive and am happy to recommend it.

I had been reviewing kayaks for several months in order to work out which type and make I wanted to buy. With limited space at home and not wanting to have a roof rack permanently on my car, I knew I wanted a collapsible style and quickly dismissed inflatable as too slow and liable to damage.

I liked the look of Klepper but their price is prohibitive and the all-wooden frame did not appeal. Neris makes a wide range of single and 2-3 man collapsible kayaks with a range of add-ons that really appealed and had an hybrid Series that has an aluminium and wooden frame. The price point was right and I went to see Simon Bolze of Neris Watersports in Reading for a chat and a demonstration of constructing the kayak.

I placed an order there and then for a Valkure 2 man kayak, plus spraydeck, optional rudder and paddles. It arrived incredibly well wrapped and I had it out in my back garden to practice constructing it. Having only watched Simon build it once a few weeks ago, I was expecting it to be a challenge - however, it is all very logical and took me just over 30 minutes. Now having built and stripped it down numerous times, I have got it down to 25 minutes or so.

It paddles well both as a single and with a 2nd paddler. It will never be quite as quick as a solid kayak, but it is no slouch. Incredibly stable due to the sponsons and I have loaded it up to over the weight recommendation with myself, my son, our dog and overnight camping gear and food with no issues. Loads of stowage gear at the front and rear and between the 2 paddlers (my dogs favoured location when the spraydeck isn't fitted!). It appears very robust with rubber running strips at all the obvious potential wear points. Next summer it is off for a couple of sea trips where I
think it will excel.

The only item I have added is a set of strap on wheels for ease of transporting the kayak when assembled when I am paddling on my own. With the Valkure 2 it is no issue carrying it with 2 of you, but the wheels make it a doddle when you are on your own (this issue would not be there if you had a single)

All in all, a well constructed and enjoyable kayak for river / lake / sea use that packs down for easy storage and transport.
