|The 450 is perhaps best-suited to the more accomplished paddler; the 520 is more forgiving and will take greater loads - the whole family even, with additional seats (option) - but not quite as responsive.|

People often ask "how long do they take to assemble?", and the answer depends on how many times you've done it before, and how much of a hurry you're in...
For the largest model, the Rando 520, it's possible to get from folded up in the car boot to assembled in the water, in 20 minutes - or possibly even a bit less (it might take you double that the first time though). The 450 is similar; the 390 and 325 have fewer frames so 15 minutes is realistic. There is nothing particularly difficult in the process and much of it is akin to assembling a tent, only with much heavier duty poles and skin.
Getting a conventional "hardshell" canoe out of the water, onto a roof rack, and safely tied down, could easily take just as long or longer - and is not always practical if you're alone/ travelling long distances/ towing a caravan etc. We don't think many airlines would accept an object 5.2m (over 17ft) long as baggage either... even the (largest in range) Nautiraid Rando 520 fits in a bag measuring just 110x60x25cm, and weighs less than 25kg.
