Nelo K4 Cinco

Revolutionary Cinco design crosses over to the K4

Order Now Exclusively From ipaddle NZ


The new Nelo K4 Cinco has arrived

After 16 long years, including three Olympic Games, the hugely successful Nelo K4 Vanquish III has finally been superseded. The new Nelo K4 Cinco is now available to order exclusively from ipaddle.co.nz

Undeniable pedigree

The K4 Cinco has the same core design aim as the recently released K1 Cinco: to reduce sideways movement from the first stroke, so the paddlers can concentrate their power in a forward direction.

The impressive results from the K1 Cinco paddlers at the 2015 World Champs makes this K4 release even more exciting. 

At a glance the evolution of the design is obvious. The boat shape is far more streamlined and sleek, the cockpits more sculpted. There are two sizes available: Medium, for up to 300kg, and Large, for over 300kg.

A long, long, long time coming

Privately, the technicians at Nelo expressed their difficulty with the testing phase of the design process: namely juggling the feedback from four athletes in a K4, as opposed to a single athlete in a K1. What’s more, they decided to wait until the boat was perfected before releasing it. 

It’s been 16 years since the last Nelo K4 model, the Vanquish III, was released. Despite the success of the K1 Quattro, Nelo did not release a K4 Quattro. This means you can expect a long life from this boat. So, unlike the iphone, this K4 will not be upgraded any time soon.

Impressive K4 times at the Olympics

Fortunately Nelo ensured the K4 Cinco was pre-approved to compete at the 2016 Olympics before its release.

No doubt a boat as different as the K4 Cinco will require athletes to modify their technique to fully take advantage of the design. However, we saw some excellent times at the Rio Olympics in 2016 – and a strong performance from our NZ K4 Women’s Team in their new K4 Cinco.
