Options - Rudder sets & Foot rests

Some important things to consider when ordering your kayak.....

Rudder sets - pedals, control cables and rudder blade - are not included as standard with any of the kayak models. For most flat water paddling with gentle turns, rudder sets are usually not neccessary.

There are two sizes of rudder blades - Standard and Comfort, and two types of rudder pedal assemblies - Clamp and Rail.

Rudder sets - Standard & Comfort
Rudder sets includes a free swinging rudder blade with a sturdy mounted control head, rudder pin, rudder pedals, rudder control cables, and a pick-up line for lifting and lowering the rudder blade whilst seated. For all models except the Smartline Alu 490.

Rudder blades - Standard & Comfort
Standard rudder blades is suitable for flat water, while the longer and narrower Comfort blades is suitable for sailing and off-shore paddling.
The Comfort rudder blade goes 8 cm deeper into the water than the standard blade - particularly useful in high waves. Both types of rudder blades can be raised out of the water via a rudder lifting cable.

Rudder pedal attachment system - Clamp & Rail
There are two types of rudder pedal assemblies - the part that attaches rudder pedals to the floor keelboard - Clamp and Rail. The guide rail is the standard fitting - fitted to the kayak's keelboard regardless even if you do not order a rudder set. On the Aerius II 545 and 585 kayaks with 3-4 seats, the rudder pedal floor attachment is set for the front paddler.
