V1 7

The Para discipline of V1 has been implemented for some years now, first boats were existing Vaa boats, but as it becomes an Olympic Discipline the level of performance and demand from the athletes has increased, that is why we designed a whole new V1.

About the Boat

The Para discipline of V1 has been implemented for some years now, first boats were existing Vaa boats, but as it becomes an Olympic Discipline the level of performance and demand from the athletes has increased, that is why we designed a whole new V1.

The new V1 7 comes in two sizes: M and L. It is a very reactive boat, allowing a fast start from the blocks and a small “wet surface” allow for a “light” paddling feel, as its direction abilities make it easier to keep it on straight line but also nimble when changing direction.

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.
