  • Retractable skeg with Necky Kayak's own kink-free Necky Wire

    Retractable Skeg

    Our retractable skeg allows a paddler to adjust the trim of the kayak. This can be advantageous in high wind conditions, when dropping the skeg even a few inches. A skeg can help reduce fatigue and make a significant difference in your boat's tracking ability.

    Necky skegs incorporate "Necky Wire," a highly durable, kink-resistant wire common to the medical industry. It is unaffected by salt water and does not stiffen or kink over time. In testing, we've never experienced a failure, even when the skeg was repeatedly slammed against logs or hard rocks jammed inside the skeg box.
