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.

Review: 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.

Review: Don't leave home without it! Had the rudder installed by ACK. Though the install works just fine, it isn't perfect. When the holes were drilled in the stern for the mounting bracket they were just a bit low. About a quarter of an inch low. Now with the rudder in the retracted position it doesn't lay flush on the top rail of the kayak, but tilted upward slightly. Again it doesn't seem to affect the functionality of the rudder, but certainly has an awkward look when stowed. Next time I will opt to do the install myself.
