I replaced the seat back on my 2009 Ride 135 with this product. This kit includes the nylon webbing that supports the seat back and the elastic cord that secures the seat in the up and down positions. Swapping it out was as easy as loosening three screws and swapping out the parts.It doesn't flex nearly as much as the original seat back and provides better back support. Unlike the original, it is not adjustable for height. But it also doesn't have the problem with slipping that the older model exhibits.

Looks like a great seat--if you have a Ride. The description is misleading. While you can retrofit the seat to work with an older Tarpon, it doesnt actually do the job. First you have to hack off the knob that keeps the base from fitting into the recess on the Tarpons making the seat unreturnable. Second, while the seat then technically can be installed, it cant be transported because the supports are wider than those on the stock CSS seat, and you cant fold the seat forward more than a few degrees. So if you want to transport your kayak, you need to completely remove the seat. I tried to modify the seat back further using a heat gun to remedy this since I couldnt return it anyway, but now Im left with a $35 hunk of useless melted plastic. I gave it the second star because it looks like a graet seat, if you can use it. Now Im off to find another seat. I trusted the description on ACK, but now Im leary.

This seat back will only work on 2007 to 2009 Tarpons and Rides prior to 2011.

Very well made Seat Back. Wish I read Bill Ski review before I started my install. Had to make two holes to install. Looks and feels great.

Installed on a Tarpon with CSS, had no issues installing and is much more supportive than the original seat back. Helps that it is wider also.
