The "X" pattern is achieved with four straps and one quick release buckle. The low anchor points of the straps allow for excellent pressure that is evenly distributed around the hatch cover.

    Support Track Foot Brace System

  • Optional rudder system with foot pedals

    Optional Necky Rudder

    The aluminum alloy used in our standard rudder can take lots of abuse, bending, and rebending before it breaks. With some care this aluminum rudder should last a lifetime. When deployed you use the foot pedals to guide the kayak to the right or the left. A rudder is used for keeping your boat on track, especially when the weather conditions change. It can help make your journey safer and more enjoyable.
