Product Description and Specs

The Smarttrack Foil Rudder Blade is the replacement blade for the Smart Track rudder system. The molded rudder blade is foil shaped so water moves across with less turbulence. Compare to ordinary flat aluminum blades, this design reduces drag and significantly increases turning efficiency. When not in use, its slim profile also exposes less surface area to crosswind drag. Available in two sizes for single and tandem kayaks.

The rudder was of good quality and installed neatly in my homemade rudder holder. I used if for a first 5 mile paddle on the spring flood waters with great advantage, compared to the smaller rudder that was inadequate for my single 15' kayak.

I like the design and function of this rudder system but have only used my kayak three times and the spring in the rudder blade broke. Will buy another blade and see if it happens again.

I put a small sail on my kayak and this larger rudder was really a helpful upgrade. SmartTrack is the best!

Top Question & Answer
Q: This may be a dumb question, but would it hurt to have the tandem rudder on a single person kayak. It just looks like it would work a little better on a kayak with horrible tracking.
A: There is no reason the Tandem Blade would not work on a single person kayak. It would offer more surface are in the water. You would just have an excess amount of rudder cable.
