Nireas LV is designed as an all-around, expedition British style sea kayak. It has large capacity of storage for those multi day expeditions but at the same time is very maneuverable and direction stable. Minimal use of skeg needed in cross winds.
The kayak comes with top quality components from Kajaksport. You can get all product codes plus other details from the article we got published related with the components we use in our kayaks.

In the low volume (LV) version we fitted a smaller seat, fully adjustable and super strong to survive many many rescues. The backrest is the same in the LV and MV models. There is an option to order the kayak with a foam seat. That saves about 700 gr of weight. If you do prefer a foam seat over the Kajaksport you will need to mention that in the ordering form plus if you want us to fit it into the kayak or you prefer to do the fitting yourself. General speaking it is better to fit the seat yourself as you might have to move it a little bit forwards or backwards depending your body type and paddling style.

The kayak has a low rear deck for easy rolling while a keyhole cockpit that gives excellent grip control and allows quick exit if need be.
The cockpit length has been carefully planned to fit small paddlers.

The forth small hatch in front of the rim is sloping on all sides, allowing an effortless entry and exit to the kayak.

We got also a sloping bulkhead behind the seat which allows the kayak to be emptied by lifting only the bow. This is particular important in rough water rescues as no x-rescue is necessary.
