It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a valid license
/ permission from the relevant authorities to
use water craft on UK's waterways, rivers, lakes, etc. Not all inland
water is open to paddlers, some access points are privately owned
or is bounded by
land which is private, so do check beforehand. Membership of a
canoe union / club is very beneficial.

Folding Kayak Series
The NERIS folding kayak range
(The NERIS hybrid kayak range is listed here)
(Key differences between all the Series explained here)
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.
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
all possible permutations to
make your secondary Alu Series kayak larger or smaller. For more
information on the Transformer concept - see the Transformer
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
and a higher weight loading limit. These Valkure Series kayaks
are also designed to handle river rapids up to Grade 3 and are
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.
