Important Notice
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.

UK's 'Song Of The Paddle' forum is a very friendly and useful site to obtain up to date information of all kinds regarding canoeing inland waters, both in the UK and Europe

Technical specifications

Details of materials currently used in the manufacture of NERIS kayaks

Folding kayaks - Alu & Valkure Series
Hybrid folding kayaks - Smart & Smart Pro Series



Folding kayaks - Alu & Valkure Series

Longitudinal frame members - Alu & Valkure Series kayaks
The stringer set is made of an anodized duralumin tube D16T (DIN 2024), manufactured by “ALCOA” – a leader in aluminum alloys. This robust type of alloy grade is typically used in aircraft.
Keel bar - all kayaks
The keel bar is made of a profiled oval tube, 20 x 35mm. This tube ensures enhanced stiffness against vertical bending.
Additionally, due to the high profile of the tube (35mm), this ensures that there is sufficient gap between the kayak skin and the cross ribs and other key frame members - to avoid potential damage to the skin when hitting underwater objects.
Washboard - Alu & Valkure Series kayaks
The washboard coaming is specially manufactured with a unique profile designed by NERIS. This design is based on sailing mast tracks and is used to grip the PVC deck securely to the washboard. The washboard is easy to install, and also provides structural strength and rigidity to the kayak frame.

Cross ribs - all kayaks
NERIS uses two different types of cross ribs:-

- Alu Series kayak cross ribs are made of duralumin tube D16T, diameter 18mm, with stainless steel stringer supports.

- Smart Series cross ribs are made of duralumin tube D16T, diameter 18mm

- Valkure Series kayak cross ribs are made of 11 layer laminated moisture proof birch plywood typically used in the yacht-building industry. The cross ribs are treated with a special impregnation 1st coat, and then is coated with three layers of marine varnish made by Tikkurila (Sweden). The aesthetic look and natural warmth of wood are the key features of NERIS kayaks.

Seats
Since the spring of 2008, all NERIS kayaks are fitted with inflatable seats "Airseat".

These seats have been highly regarded by our clients. The seats feature straps on the underside for reliable and secure attachment to the keel bar of the kayak, and also has side straps with provision for back rest tilt adjustments. Additionally, the inflatable seats double up as buoyancy 'tanks' ensuring unsinkability of the kayak.

The seats are made of abrasive resistant PVC fabric and the twist valves on the ends of the inflation tubes are made by Halkey- Roberts (USA).


Alu & Valkure Series - inflatable back and bottom
Smart Series - inflatable bottom with padded back

Skin
The kayak skin is made of two different grades of PVC fabric - a density of 1050gsm for the hull, and 620gsm for the deck. These high-quality marine grade PVC fabrics are made by Mehler (Germany).

The hull has profiled rubber protector strips fitted along all of the chines that are formed by the stringers and keel bars. This serves to protect the PVC skin itself when bumping or scraping against underwater objects

The deck and hulls are available in various colors, with the hull being available in black or cream, and the deck in red, orange, yellow, blue, light blue, olive green and grey as standard. Other deck and hull colours are available on special request.

The fabrics, threads and protectors used in the manufacture of the kayak skins are all resistant to moisture, fungi and other aggressive factors.
