Product Description and Specs

With the SmartTrack Recreational Toe Pilot Foot Controls, instead of sliding your feet forward and back as with standard pedals, your feet stay braced at all times. Upper pedals do the steering so your stability and balance are never compromised. Lets you maintain control while directing energy from your torso directly to your stroke. Paddling more efficiently means you can paddle longer. The recreational toe pilot is perfect for sit-on-top kayaks as they can be mounted directly to most existing hardware provided existing nuts are located at 14.5" on center. It features a fiber enforced plastic rail and includes stainless rudder cables, stainless 1/4-20 Philips truss screws, and rubber spacers.

• Steer the rudder with your feet
• Keeps your feet braced while the upper pedals steer
• Can be mounted to most existing hardware
• Easy to install
• Sold as a pair

When I first started looking into adding a rudder to my boat (Perception Conduit 13, same hull as Dagger Catalyst) I realized that the foot control pedals would not be useful to brace with when paddling. I found the answer to that problem with these. They were fairly easy to install (take your time and plan carefully and it's easy). LOVE the amazing control I have now, and can focus on paddling technique and let my toes do the steering! If you're interested in adding a rudder, or have one and want increased control and to still be able to use the foot pegs to lock in and brace properly, these are the peddles you want.

Worked well the first few months but with more use and exposure the pedals are binding and the return springs have weakened. I'm in a coastal area with exposure to sand and salt, this may not be an issue on inland fresh water. Also keep in mind that these pedals move only about 2" of cable. If you are using a rudder other than a Smart Rudder you may have to relocate the cable attachments closer to the center of the rudder to get adequate travel. Not a bad product ,just not a great choice for me.

Put these mama jamma's on my Jackson Coosa HD and connected the cables to my trolling motor for steering. Had to add some plastic spacers to shim out the tracks but it worked out well. They look great and function well. Waiting for warmer weather to test on the water. I give these 4 stars because there's a little play between the foot pedal and where it connects to the track. You can tighten the cables with the small adjustable knob at the end of the cable. This may eliminate the slight play I experienced. No instructions were provided but it's two screws and spacers, pretty simple.

For my 2010 Current Designs Unity tandem it was a perfect replacement for the older Harmony slide type rudder. Worked with the epoxied bolts (alas no bolt through like most foot controls). As another reviewer mentioned, it does not throw a long way so if you need a lot of travel in your rudder particularly for tandems, I had great success on a Seda Tango with the Aluminum slider inside of a plastic track rudder control by Keepers (works much better than the Harmony as a slider type rudder for a tandem). However, the Unity does not need a lot of rudder (edge turns fairly well) so the small throw worked just fine. We will see how it holds up since I am not using a Smartrack rudder but rather the rudder that came on the kayak (so the rudder itself seems a bit heavier and less fluid).

Q: I recently purchased a tsunami 120 with your standard rudder option. I would like to replace the pedals with a toe control system. Are the track holes the same on the smart track system as on the wilderness system or harmony rudder system. If so how difficult is it to replace and install the new control system and which smart track system should i purchase? If it works well on my 120 i wpuld also like to upgrade my 145 and 125, as well.
A: Yes the track holes are in the same spont on the smart track system. It is fairly simple to replace this, the hardest part would be doing the rudder line but this is not very difficult as instructions would be included. This would be the correct system that you would need.
