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
the instructions were useless and parts were missing from the rudder kit.
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.
the best rudder ever!!!
