Nelo sculling boats are constructed with carbon fibre with an intermediate layer of PVC. These materials provide a greater rigidity and durability. As we use a double mould in the process, our designs result in seamless and excellent finishes.
The wing riggers are made by Nelo, in carbon, having as major features strength, durability and ease to setup. They can come in clear carbon or in colour for a seamless finish. They are available as a bow or stern mounted version .
Our design team developed a boat with a flatter hull, with the main goal of keeping it sliding longer and higher, reducing the pitching movements in each stroke. This concept has its peak in the bow, which is inverted, thus decreasing drag with all the previous advantages.
Our engineering team also works hard to develop better solutions for fittings and accessories, that break the mould on what exists and what can be done for the sport of rowing. Nelo created a new concept of seat and rails. The seat is very stiff and lightweight, while being comfortable. The rails use all the length available on the platform, not limiting the rower in any way and avoiding the need for adjustments. The inverted profile keeps the tracks clean all the time
