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 are privately owned or is bounded
land which is private, so do check beforehand. Membership of a
canoe union / club is very beneficial.
specialises in watercraft made with high grade aluminum and PVC -
inflatable kayaks and catarafts. All the boats and high grade materials
that the boats are made from, are all produced in Europe, with the
PVC welding done on quality German made machines. NERIS ZelGear also
makes PVC inflatable seats, waterproof dry bags, pouches, inflatable
tents, inflatable snow sleds, SUP boards and more.
NERIS ZelGear boats has been available for over 13 years mostly sold in Eastern
European countries and Russia through various large retail outlets and as well
as being rented out by river tour hire companies. Now an exclusive dealership
has opened up here in the UK.
Many of the NERIS products incorporate
the 1st in a few designs - NERIS is the 1st with the
innovative 'Transformer' Series of folding kayaks, the
1st to produce the fold down 'A' frame sailing masts
design for folding kayaks, and ZelGear is the 1st to
produce the kneeling design on frameless R2 and R4/6
river running catarafts.
Over that last 16 years, different models and types of NERIS watercrafts have
been thoroughly tested and used worldwide, on rivers of varying grades up to
Grade 5. This is testament to the hard wearing quality of the PVC used for the
hulls and a lighter grade for the upper decks (folding kayaks) plus the PVC welds
used in between. NERIS folding kayaks have been used down large rapids on the
River Nile in Uganda and on freezing waters in Alaska, Norway and Siberia. The
catarafts have been tested and used on many white water rivers for many years
and latterly over the last 3-4 years in Canada
The streamlined ZelGear IGLA series of inflatable kayaks have shown that these
boats can complete well against folding kayaks and even the hard shell kayaks
ZelGear has many years experience in building and developing white water catamaran
style rafts, first with aluminum frames securing the two main pontoon floats
(framed catarafts), and latterly joining the floats with interconnecting air
tubes (frameless rafts). The successful and highly sought after R2 and R4 kneeling
frameless catarafts are also currently being sold and used in North America and
Canada under different
NERIS products are listed separately on our sister site at Neris.co.uk
