The Nelo Struer K1: future family heirloom.

Now you can have the most beautiful performance kayak ever seen. Hand sculpted in fine, glowing Mahogany, the Nelo Struer Kayak will be the talk of the clubrooms for generations.

With a combined 100 years of kayaking design experience, Nelo and Struer have joined forces to craft a truly unique racing kayak – finely tuned to the smallest detail and tooled to match current international design rules for competition kayaks. It's also ideal for racing, marathons and cruising. 


A newly designed classic shape ensures a speedy kayak with good balance. There is the smallest possible loss of energy in the power transfer from paddle to kayak. It has excellent directional stability. And from with the first decisive starting stroke, you'll be impressed with its acceleration.

Struer and Nelo – at the top of their fields.

Danish company Struer has been in operation since 1947, saw one of its boats win an Olympic gold medal the following year in London, and tasted regular Games success over the next 50 years. The company founded by cabinetmakers Sv. Helge Kobberup and Gerhard Sorensen is the world’s best-known manufacturer of mahogany kayaks. See more of their beautiful kayaks on their website.


The reason to go into this partnership is mainly because of Nelo's network and expertise. Nelo is for obvious reasons the only brand we would partner for such adventure. Carl Larsen, Struer


Nelo celebrates its 40th year in canoeing this year, is an international leader in performance kayaks and as an innovator in boat design, services and technology.


We are extremely excited to open this new chapter with Struer and to have the chance to partner with an iconic brand. It's a great opportunity and honour. The goal is clear: bring back all the memories, mystique and glory of these types of manufacturing boats to all canoes and kayaks lovers. Manuel Ramos


Each kayak is hand crafted by true artisans. It is no overstatement to say you are not just buying a boat, you're acquiring a family heirloom. This is true craftsmanship that will stand the test of time and taste.
