The Navigator easily slides down and retracts onto the deck. The rudder blade locks itself in the lowest position automatically and releases itself when lifted up. This innovative and secure mechanism prevents the blade from rising out of the water when paddling at full speed or in surf.
Note: There are two sizes of pins and two sizes of rudders. 42 mm pin requires optional rudder sleeve. 85 mm pin is installed to a hole in the stern of the kayak, no additional sleeve required (pin diameter 10 mm). The longer blade for Navigator rudder is more efficient for double kayaks or kayaks with high stern.
Includes: Rudder head part, rocker part, blade, lift-up rope, revert bungee, locking knob mechanism, rope stopper and rope for it.
If using the 42mm pin be sure to buy a KS-Rudder Sleeve.
