EG - you will only see "NERIS SMART PRO" on all three Smart PRO models

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 / rivers are privately owned or is bounded by land which is private, so do check beforehand. Membership of a canoe union / club is very beneficial.


Sail rigs

"Sail when you can - paddle when you must"

Two different types sail rigs are available for the NERIS folding kayaks - an upwind 'Profi' sail rig and a downwind 'Genaker' sail rig. Currently there is no compatible NERIS sail rig for the Valkure-1, but we can recommend an alternative pop-up sail rig.

"With a downwind sail rig, you are setting the kayak up to paddle (sail whenever the wind is behind you by raising the mast), with an upwind sail rig, you are setting up the kayak to sail (mast is 'permanently' up, lower the sails when there's no wind)"

5.0 Profi - 5sqm upwind fixed mast sail rig. Has a jib, main sail, bridge and outriggers. Convert the kayak into a fast sailboat and sail for the day! For NERIS Alu-2, 3 and NERIS Valkure-2 & 3.
Two variants available - standard with single arm and short swivelling pontoons, and the "S" version with double arms and long pontoons plus suspended platform nets similar to catamarans

3.0 Genaker - 3sqm downwind flexi mast. Has a triangular shaped spinnaker sail with an 'A' frame mast that is hinged at the base and attached to both sides of the cockpit. The A frame mast is normally stowed flat on the front deck but is designed so that the mast can be easily pulled into the upright position when the wind is favourable whilst out paddling. The shape of the A frame mast is designed to fit flat on the front deck when in the lowered position, so the mast does not get in the way of the front paddler at any time. In keeping with the folding kayak concept, the A frame mast comes in pieces and packs into a slim carry bag.

For NERIS Alu-1, 2, 3 and NERIS Valkure-2 & 3 and NERIS Smart-2 & 3, Neris Smart PRO kayaks only. There are two variant Genaker 3.0 sail rigs due to the kayak's sizing. If you already have a NERIS kayak, please let us know which model you have.

Sail colours (one colour only or in any two colour combination):-
Blue, navy blue, white and silver (gray), black, yellow & green
