About NERIS
(The manufacturer)


Folding kayaks first developed in Germany on a commercial basis in 1907, and to this day, Germany is still the heart of folding kayak activity, where a high proportion of kayaks in use are folding kayaks. During the heyday of folding kayak manufacturing in Germany, many companies started and closed over time, with a core of at least 7 major brands between the 1930's to 1950's. During that time, folding kayak development and manufacturing spread from Germany, across to Poland, southern Russia, UK and France. From the 1950's onwards more brands spread around the world in spite of serious competition from hard shell glass fibre and later, plastic kayaks. Around the 1970's, It was the proliferation of cheaper glass fibre and plastic moulded kayaks that sadly caused the closure of many good quality folding kayak businesses in Europe including the 2 main manufacturers in the UK.

NERIS started in 1999 as a specialist PVC business and is based in Kiev, Ukraine. The company first started out providing kayak skin repair services and produced folding kayak replacement skins. By 2001, the business had rapidly developed the quality of their PVC products such that their first catamaran white water raft model won at most of the prestigious competitions that were held in Russia at the time.

In 2003, NERIS became the official supplier of accessories for Poucher-Boote - a leading German folding kayak manufacturer. In 2004, NERIS expanded their range of framed catarafts, and in the following year, started production of their 1st own design double seater kayak. This NERIS Valkure-2 became an immediate success, not only with sales, but also with winning awards in competitions and at Water Tourism shows.

By 2006, NERIS had designed, developed and produced 3 more folding kayak models - all of which became popular and sold in large numbers in Ukraine, Russia, Germany and Canada.

In 2011, saw a supply agreement placed with a large Russian outdoor equipment dealership - that saw many Russians switching preference to the high quality products made by NERIS.

In 2012, production of the single and double seater inflatable kayaks started. The same year saw the introduction of the Alu-2 and Alu-3 folding kayaks.

In 2015, NERIS started supplying the R2 & R4 kneeling frameless catarafts to the USA market, under a US trade name - ZELGEAR. This innovative forward facing seating position R2 & R4 kneeling frameless cataraft is the 1st of its kind in the world.

Currently the product line up that are all made in the NERIS factory by highly trained staff are:-
- 6 folding kayak models (1, 2 and 3 seaters)
- 4 inflatable hybrid kayaks (1, 2 and 3 seaters)
- 3 inflatable canoes (child, 1, 2 and 3 seaters)
- 5 framed catamarans (alu frame between pontoons)
- 5 frameless catamarans (inflatable tubes joining the pontoons) - 2 are of the kneeling type
- A wide range of hermetic bags (dry bags, back packs, pouches, duffle bags, etc)
- Spray skirts, inflatable seats, sponsons, carry bags and other accessories for boating
- Inflatable tents and sleds

Most of the more experienced factory staff really love white water rivers (had been paddling long before the business started) so the products that they work on making, have all been thoroughly tested and proven by themselves (and others) many times. They are also very fit and competitive too, entering in various races and marathons using NERIS folding kayaks, inflatable kayaks and as well as catarafts, all with notable results. They care about what they make becuase they actually use them!
