NERIS Smart-3 kayak combines the best features of frame and inflatable kayaks. The frame makes Smart-3 rigid and carinate, on a par with frame kayaks. Smart model tests have shown that if one or two balloons are damaged, the kayak stays on the water and is able to hold the course due to the frame. Robust inflatable balloons guarantee safety and stability. You can get into the kayak from water, leaning on one board.
