Options - Seats

Kayaks are supplied with Standard Seats. If you plan to paddle long distances, you may want to consider alternative seat solutions.

The double seater Aerius II 545 have an extra 'solo paddler' seat fitting roughly in a central position for ideal balance so that the kayak can be used either as a normal double seater or as a single seater, whenever you want to. The kayak does not come standard with a solo paddler back rest - this item is optional extra (the width is different to the front and rear back rests).

Standard seat - Seat on rail
Seat and backrest (2 pieces) are standard for your KLEPPER kayak. The seats are all black and the seat position can be adjusted on the guide rail affixed to the keel board. The back rest/s is secured to fixed positions located on the coaming.

Like the old wooden backrest used in earlier Klepper models, the current backrests use the same rotary locks on the ends of the backrest tube to attach to the coaming T-fittings.

Weight of seat and backrest is 1,9 kg (already included in the weight of the kayak).

When ordering back rests, please indicate which seat position you require. Seat numbering sequence is that #1
is at the front. If you require the solo paddler back rest (AEII 520, 545), please specifically state this.

Seat bottom

Ergonomic seat
The ergonomic seat can be adjusted on the rail affixed to the bottom keel and has a waterproof, inflatable backrest. Weight of seat 1,8 kg (already included in the weight of boat).

The ergonomic seat cannot be used on Tramp/Scout 380 and Aerius I 450 because the distance between the rail and the boomerang is too narrow.

Comfort seat
The comfort seat is a one piece seat and back. It can be adjusted on the guide rail affixed to the keel board. The height of the backrest is adjustable (three possible levels) and the angle of the backrest is also adjustable.

The comfort seat is recommended for children, often used in reversed position, i.e. face to face.

Applied load on the backrest without stabilisation bar: 50 kg max. When using the stabilisation bar supplied: 70 kg max.

Seat boosters

Height boosters for Standard and Comfort seats. Increase the height of the seat by 3, 6 or 9cm.

The booster for Comfort seats can only fit Comfort seats. Please specify which type of booster seat you require and the height.
