Want the most successful Racing Kayak ever made?

The Nelo Quattro has won more Olympic Medals, ICF World Champion Titles and World Records than any other sprint kayak. It's still a solid, reliable kayak that is as quick as you can be. It's slightly wider than Nelo's most recent model, the Nelo Cinco, which make the Quattro the more stable choice – yet suitable for most athletes that want to move up to a really, really fast boat.
Performance, stability and comfort are the core elements for all Nelo kayaks. The Quattro combines these with awesome speed on the water.

ipaddle can help you customise your NELO Kayak to suit your body shape and paddling style.
