NERIS Alu-3 is a unique framed kayak-transformer. If you have an Alu-3 kayak, you can easily get a single seater NERIS Alu-1 or a double seater NERIS Alu-2 with minimum investment. The kayak's module structure allows to transform the models using the Transformer kit - the skin and the extra frame pieces of the respective models, which is up to 70% cheaper than the cost of a complete kayak.
Here you can find detailed information on transforming the Alu series kayaks.
