Nelo Kayaks


Their quality and speed in the water is second to none. That's why Nelo Kayaks are consistently chosen by the world's best paddlers and highly ranked at international racing events.

The 2016 Rio Olympics were Nelo's most successful to date, outstripping the competition on the medal's table – including the Gold and Bronze medals won by Lisa Carrington.

Nelo develops and releases its models on a four year cycle to coincide with the Olympics. It alternates between releasing canoes and kayaks.

The Nelo Quattro (4), Nelo Cinco (5) and Nelo Sete (7) are kayaks, with the latest model (Sete) released in 2018, in time for the Tokyo Olympics training to begin in earnest. A Para kayak version (V1 Sete) has also been released for the Paralympics.

The 6 model is purely a canoe, as will be the 8 (to be released 2019).
