Transformer Kits for NERIS Alu Series kayaks

Need a large kayak for the family but sometimes want to paddle solo with a smaller kayak at a least possible cost? An Alu Series kayak with a Transformer Kit might be the solution for you! Simply assemble a smaller kayak using frame parts borrowed from the bigger kayak plus use a 'spare' small kayak skin ....

Or you start small with a single seater NERIS Alu-1, and then later decide to get a bigger kayak to include a growing family ..... you just need to purchase the respective Transformer Kit to make the bigger kayak ...... this kit has the extra frame pieces needed plus the bigger version skin.

Transformer Kits are add-on packs for existing Alu Series kayaks. The Alu Series kayaks are based on using compatible frame parts - all three Alu kayaks in the Series have the same bow and stern frame pieces and end cross ribs, so you just need to add or take away the middle frame sections to create a different sized kayak plus have the appropriate kayak skin for that 2nd sized boat.

For example - you purchase a NERIS Alu-3, a large multi-seater seater kayak for the family but from time to time, you may want to go paddling on your own and the Alu-3 might just be too big for yourself to manage solo. Instead of buying another complete single seater kayak, you can purchase a Transformer Kit for an Alu-1. This kit comprises of just an Alu-1 kayak skin plus a few key frame parts.

Note that Transformer Kits does not mean two complete kayaks that you can use at the same time. You can purchase at a later stage, Upgrade Packs, to complete the 'Transformer' kayak as a full standalone kayak.

Transformer Kits can be purchased at any time, not necessarily together with your 1st NERIS folding kayak purchase, so that your Alu Series kayak collection can grow over time.

Considering purchasing a Transformer Kit together with a kayak now? Cost wise, it is more economical that the bigger kayak of the two is the normal purchase and the smaller kayak is the Transformer Kit boat rather than the other way round (small to big).

NB - spray skirts and extra bag (for skin) are not included
