 Product Description and Specs

The Native Ultimate Rudder Kit is attached to the stern of the boat and helps you gain control of your native Ultimate on windy days or when turning in tight spots. When the Native Ultimate Rudder Kit is not in use, the included cleat and bungee secure it to the stern of the kayak once you have raised it up. Wires run from the blade to the Easy Foot braces which are used to control the rudder during paddling. The Native Ultimate Rudder Kit comes complete with all of the hardware you'll need to install the rudder on your Native Ultimate as well as step by step instructions of the installation process. The Ultimate Rudder Kit will NOT work for the Ultimate FX kayak series, an FX rudder is coming soon.

    This rudder system is 1st class and far above others I have used. It is extremely easy to deploy and retract and there is no resistance to steering. A great and necessary product for my Ultimate 14.5 Tandem

    Where to begin... I paid retail and expected a complete rudder kit. It was packed poorly, many, many parts missing on delivery. I'm not even sure I received a genuine Native Watercraft rudder since the name doesn't appear anywhere on the product or the packaging. Back and forth a number of times about missing parts. Even though I paid full price, I did not get the impression that they really care at all. Way too much hassle ordering from ACK. Not a good experience at all.

    ACK Reply:

    We can assure you that this was a Native Rudder, purchased by us from them, then delivered to you. We are terribly sorry that it was missing parts and wish we could inspect all packaging from our suppliers, but given the thousands of items that we warehouse and supply, it just isn't possible. That doesn't help your situation and we understand that. We are always here to help and can usually expedite any missing parts should this situation occur - please contact our customer service team and we will make this right.

    Great product, worth the high cost, wish I would have added it to my yak a long time ago. Easy install for newer model ultimates.

    Top Question & Answer
    Q: Will this rudder work on the Ultimate 14.5 Tandem in both the tandem and solo positions?
    A: This will work for all Ultimates with the exception of the Ultimate FX series. It does have a tandem module extension for the foot controls, so would only be able to be used by one person, whether in solo or tandem set-up.
