You can use the classical triple seater Alu-3 Expedition kayak to travel on the inland water, such as rivers, lakes and water reservoirs. It is perfectly suitable both for a weekend camping trip and for long-distance autonomous trips. Streamlined shape makes the kayak fast, controllable and directionally stable.

The Expedition supply set includes a spray deck, a rudder system, waist skirts and cockpit covers that allow to use the Alu-3 in adverse weather conditions, like cold or rainy weather. If you wish, you can equip your kayak with an additional seat for short trips or camping trips with a child, and having bought a Transformer kit, you can easily transform your Alu-3 into a single or double seater, while saving funds and storage space.

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.

Features of the NERIS Alu-3 model:

  • The kayak's design is simple and reliable, it's easy to assemble and has no fragile plastic frame fasteners;
  • In the center of the kayak there is a big storage compartment;
  • It is supplied together with practical inflatable seats;
  • The kayak is packed into a lightweight and durable rucksack with adjustable shoulder straps and a hip belt;
  • The rucksack's dimensions are 45х25х110 cm, upon request the kayak can be packed into two rucksacks (one for the skin and one for the frame).
  • Alu-3 has closed Duralumin cross ribs with stainless steel stringer supports, which significantly increases its reliability, durability and useful life;
  • The skin is made of hard-wearing marine grade PVC fabric, the hull has special protector strips fitted along all of the chines that are formed by the stringers and the keel bar;
  • Practical carrying handles;
  • The kayak can optionally be equipped with the fourth seat to accommodate a child;
  • The kayak can be used as a double seater for long expeditions with more cargo;
  • The kayak can be harnessed with a "Gennaker with an A-mast" or "Profi" rig;
  • With no inflatable balloons the boat has more available storage;
  • Cast bracket on the stern to mount the rudder;
  • Body harness on the kayak's deck;
  • Not recommended for sea and ocean, as salty water can over time affect the durability of Duralumin cross ribs.
