C1 8

When a boat is conceptualized we aim at a certain pitch, roll, and movement tolerance, but the athletes, due to their techniques and their specificities often use the boat in a very different way. The changes applied are meant to exactly reduce the number of athletes and moments where the boat is not on that optimum level.

Small but crucial improvements were made across the range so that the behavior and boat movement matched exactly what we are looking for. When a boat is conceptualized we aim at a certain pitch, roll, and movement tolerance, but the athletes, due to their techniques and their specificities often use the boat in a very different way. The changes applied are meant to exactly reduce the number of athletes and moments where the boat is not on that optimum level.

The main changes are in the volume distribution, allowing for a feel of “push forward” upon stepping on the front and a quicker “recovery” of the stern after the blade exit.

How to Setup your Nelo Boat

The Perfect trim

As with any high-performance machine, there is an ideal configuration where our boats are at peak efficiency, specifically with the angle of attack (pitch). This guide will help you trim your boat in order to be at that perfect angle when at speed.

  • Check the table and images below to find the right measures for your boat size. That’s how you find the optimum static rending.
  • Using a marker trace a small straight line, according to the right measure indicated in the table, on the bow for the static line;
  • With the boat stopped, adjust your seat and footrest position so that the static line is levelled with the waterline. At that point is the Optimum Static Rending.

The measures we provide are for the median weight for each boat size (80 kg on an L, for example). So if you are on the limits of the boat’s weight range, the line will be over or under water, but the most important is that the static line is still levelled with the waterline.

DISCLAIMER 
These ideal trims were the result of real-world testing and CFD analysis, under optimal conditions: flat water, constant speed, no wind, and average water temperature. Meaning that these results may not apply to other scenarios.
