SmartTrack Rear Mount Blade Housing. Installs on kayaks with a vertical, flat section on the stern of the kayak using the bracket that comes with the housing.
Typical examples are Epic, Necky and Northwest kayaks. Thanks to an internal leverage-rod, it's a snap to raise and lower your rudder blade with this tiller and rudder box assembly. It protects the blade in an upright position when you don't want to use a rudder, and has adjustable spring tension that keeps the blade down in the water when you do. All parts are machined for precision fit and coated with Teflon® to prevent corrosion.
The function of the blade housing is to attach the rudder blade to your kayak, and to accommodate most of the common kayaks on the market. Some of the SmartTrack housing features:
Supplied with mounting plate, blade lift control line kit and wedgie attachment kit.
