Kayaking - Little
adventures with my folding kayak. By: Nick, The Quiet Paddler
Alu-2 500 - Owner - Jordan Newman-Beckett - July 2016
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
Valkure-2 550 - Owner - Nigel Godbolt, Northampton - July 2016
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
I wanted a collapsible style and quickly dismissed inflatable
slow and liable to damage.
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
right and I went to see Simon Bolze of Neris Watersports
for a chat and a demonstration of constructing the kayak.
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
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
have loaded it
up to over
the weight recommendation with myself, my son, our dog and
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
a couple of sea trips where I
think it will excel.
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
on your own (this
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
