Thinking of racing in the non-stop DW Folding Boat Class in 2020?
The Neris Valkure-2 (race version) is the boat for you
Several Neris Valkure-2's took part for the first time in the 2017 & 2018 DW races and the general consensus was that the boats were really fast compared to the other model folding kayaks. DW 2018 unfortunately was cancelled during the event due to high water levels.
In DW 2019, Valkure-2's came 1st and 3rd.
