 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.
