The Wilderness Systems Tarpon Kayak Replacement Handles contains two replacement handles that will fit the Tarpon 100, 120, 130T, 140, 160, 160i as well as the Ride and many others. Sold as a pair.
These are as advertised. They matched the end handles on the Tarpons. With the front handles, you will need a phillips screw driver and a wrench to hold the nut while untightening and tightening the screws. The back handle is easy to replace and only require the screwdriver. For side handles, you will want to order the pair with the bungee to hold your paddle in place.
I purchased these to replace a handle that ripped after 5 years of use. The replacement handle ripped in the same way after one use.
These handles are junk. the fabric tears at the transition from hard plastic to fabric. Happened on both my Tarpon kayaks. Unfortunately nothing else fits so I have to keep replacing them, tried Malibu's but no dice. Any advice?
We bought replacement handles. They were perfect and we received them promptly.
