Escape Full Up, from Kayak Gear new rudder for two-seater kayaks, with quick bayonet coupling, completely foldable on deck and with the blade kept in working position, by an elastic system, which prevents it from being raised at higher speeds.
This rudder is made of sturdy reinforced nylon composite, with the coupling pin made of stainless steel. The blade has a new hydrodynamic profile, derived from studies on the rudders of competition “dinghies”, for minimum resistance in the water and maximum directional effectiveness.
The new blade profile allows a lower resistance of the rudder with the same directional effect.
The selected construction materials allow to eliminate the serious problem of galvanic currents of metal rudders, a phenomenon ignored by many, but which becomes evident over time or in long excursions, often causing wear or breakage of the coupling pin. or the blade.
