CONCEPT Improve a winning boat by keeping the good attributes of the Cinco while offering a better feeling of speed and direction.

DESIGN A design that stays closer to the optimum trim for longer and reduces the pitch and heading amplitude. The new shape was also thought to contribute for the rigidity of the boats.

LAYUP Improved stiffness with Unidirectional Carbon placed as a structural reinforcement net. 100% carbon reinforced rim adds rigidity on a structural part of the boat.

PERFORMANCE Similar top speed, when compared with the Cinco, but with an improved speed loss curve, resulting in a more efficient boat that sustains the top speed for longer. Less heading movement and better stability allows for more powerful strokes and smoother glide. SIZES With the Sete we cover a wider athletes range weight, from 55kg to over 100kg. K1 and K2 Sete are now available in S, M, ML, L, XXL and XXXL sizes. The K4 is available in 3 sizes: M, ML and L.

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.

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.
