A SmartTrack Control System changes the way you paddle your kayak. Smart Track combines nautical science with high tech materials for their sea kayak rudder system. A solid ergonomic foot control and a responsive foil-shaped blade provides more efficiency, precision, and comfort. No more old fashion sliding foot controls. Maintain contact with your kayak’s thigh braces, thus improving stability. Only your toes control the rudder blade. Ergonomic design places your feet, legs and hips at the optimal angle for comfortable, efficient movement.

Replace an Existing Rudder System: Not happy with your current rudder? Replace it! You can replace as much or as little of the old system you like. Consider some or all of these parts: Toe Pilot Foot Control, one of the many Blade Housings, a Foil Blade and a Vertical Adjustment Kit.
New Rudder Installation: Never had a rudder? Add one! Use this basic checklist to get started: Toe Pilot Foot Control, one of the many Blade Housings, a Foil Blade, the Cable Housing Kit and a Vertical Adjustment Kit.
Tips: The Tandem Foil Blade may be a better choice for high stern kayaks, kayak sailing and some sit-on-tops, due to the longer blade length. Use the Recreational Toe Pilot Foot Controls for sit-on-tops. Toe Pilot pedals and cables may be overly exposed to damage when used with a sit-on-top. Make a careful assessment as needed.
