About the Boat

The inverted hull bow keeps the boat closer to the optimum trim for longer and reduces unwanted heading changes.

With its streamlined deck the athlete  is able to do the catch and push almost without noticing the deck is even there, in a new concept of total freedom of movement.

Its tailored cockpit provide the most comfortable position possible in each one of the 6 different sizes available.

The stern gives a huge support at the back for a quicker recovery effect out of the water, reducing pitch and heading movement. The new rudder has now a deeper profile for an increased heading stabilization without increasing drag or reducing turning rate.

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.
