FEATURES & FITTINGS
Low position seats for stability
Mini kayaks are equipped with simple 2-pin floor mounted seats providing low centre of gravity for improved stability.
KAPE Minis are also equipped with simple yet reliable footrests with easy-to-adjust spring sliding system. The fixing frame & fittings of the footrest are positioned behind the footplate, so the full width of the boat is available for the feet. This provides comfort & full use of the tiller bar for effective steering. Perfect for club use to regularly adjust the footrest distance.
In STANDARD+ construction, the footplate is covered with EVA traction pad for non-slip and increased comfort & equipped with adjustable foot strap to teach leg drive.
Full & adjustable angle footrest is also available for maximum leg drive & customisation.
