Complete Short Pin Rudder and Footbrace Kit

Typical examples are Current Designs and Pacific Water Sports kayaks. Thanks to an internal leverage-rod, it's a snap to raise and lower your rudder blade with this tiller and rudder box assembly. It protects the blade in an upright position when you don't want to use a rudder, and has adjustable spring tension that keeps the blade down in the water when you do. All parts are machined for precision fit and coated with Teflon® to prevent corrosion.

The Kit Includes:

  • Rudder Mount 
  • Rudder Cord with Ball End
  • V-Cleat
  • Cool Rudder Wedgie
  • Shrink Tubing
  • Wear Washer
  • Vertical Adjustment Kit

Blade Lengths: Single measures 13.5 x 3 in; Tandem measures 16.5 x 3.5 in

Smarttrack combines fixed foot pegs with movable rudder pedals. Allows you use a rudder without giving up rigid foot braces, essential for solid bracing in a performance kayak.

• Foot braces are adjustable while sitting in the cockpit
• Choose rudder foil designed for Tandem/Sit-On-Top or Single (solo) kayaks
• The short pin style is typically used on kayaks that have a horizontal or step down flat area in the rear deck. Existing rudders are normally held down with a truss head screw.
• May require optional tubing kit
