Nelo Sete (7) K1

Nelo Sete (7) K1

Welcome to the new Nelo Sete K1!

Nelo has built on the success of the Cinco, to create its latest masterpiece, the Sete (7 in Portuguese).

Here are some of the innovations:


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


A new design that keeps optimum trim for longer, and reduces the pitch and heading amplitude. The new shape also contributes to the rigidity of the boat.


Improved stiffness due to Unidirectional Carbon being placed as a structural reinforcement net. The cockpit rims are 100% carbon reinforced which also adds rigidity.


The Sete has a similar top speed to the Cinco, but the Sete has an improved speed loss curve, resulting in a more efficient boat that sustains top speed for longer. Less heading movement and better stability allows for more powerful strokes and a smoother glide.


With the Sete we cover a wider athlete weight range, from 55kg to over 100kg. K1 and K2 Sete are now available in S, M, ML, L, XXL and XXXL sizes. The K4 will be available in 3 sizes: M, ML and L.


New steering system. New rudder blade which is now 100% carbon and has a new, more efficient shape. New T-Bar with easy length adjustment. New cable ties. All combined make for a more efficient and smoother steering solution.
