About the 540

The Nelo 540 is the one ski that can do it all.
Stable, fast and agile.

This ski is a step up in speed from the 520, and offers a little less stability.

This ski is perfect for the paddler looking for  that next step in their progression from the more stable models.
The photo on the right shows a particularly windy day in the Gorge – and the 540 really showed off in these conditions!

After testing the full line of Nelo skis, as well as other brands, I found the 540L was the perfect balance of stability and performance for me. Not only was the ski a great fit for me, but Maggie and Michele devoted the time with me to insure that it was the right ski for my ability level and that it I was properly set up and that I had the right tools to get the most out of it. I couldn’t be more happy with the experience… and my new ski!

I’m really enjoying the 540! By far it’s the most comfortable ski I’ve paddled! Also love how responsive it is in the bumps! Plus being 17.5 ft long it’s so much easier to transport! Thanks again on selling me such a great ski!
