Technology and innovation by NELO

The boats are constructed with carbon fiber and have an intermediate layer of PVC. These materials provide greater rigidity and durability. Because double molds are used during the process, the designs result in seamless and excellent finishes.

The most striking feature of the Nelo is the upside down or inverted bow and the flat bottom of the stern.
This boat shape is patented by Nelo for canoes and rowing boats.
An inverted bow ensures that the furthest point of the bow is always in the water, so the waterline length is maintained.
A longer waterline means a faster top speed compared to a bow that comes out of the water and thus has a shorter waterline length and therefore slows down.

There is less buoyancy at the narrow bow, which prevents waves from lifting the front of the boat.
This means that the boat experiences less pitch and pierces easily through waves.
It also reduces the up and down movement of the bow caused by the intermittent rowing movement.

The reverse bow is not new.
It was used in early warships and nowadays you can see them in the latest racing yacht designs:

The flat bottom of the stern actually does the opposite of the bow. This ensures that the stern cannot easily be kicked down by the rower.

The reverse bow and the flat bottom of the stern thus ensure a smoother and tighter movement of the boat through the water, so a higher speed is achieved.

Other less striking but no less innovative new details:
- Multiple fins for different conditions, extremely easy and quick to change.
- Convex slides + hollow seat wheels, which prevents dirt on the slides and guarantees a smooth movement of the seat.
- Smart, very easy to adjust oarlock angle and height.

Nelo is constantly innovating, so you can expect more to come.
