NERIS Smart-3 kayak combines the best features of frame and inflatable kayaks. The frame makes Smart-3 rigid and carinate, on a par with frame kayaks. Smart model tests have shown that if one or two balloons are damaged, the kayak stays on the water and is able to hold the course due to the frame. Robust inflatable balloons guarantee safety and stability. You can get into the kayak from water, leaning on one board.
Perfect design makes the kayak lightweight and compact. You will need only 10 - 15 minutes to assemble or disassemble your Smart even if you have no previous tourist experience. The kayak can be easily carried by one person, transported in municipal transport or in any car, packed into one standard baggage place when travelling by air.
Multi-purposeness of the model allows to use it in various conditions: flat or whitewater rivers, lakes, coastal areas of the seas and oceans.
