kayak seat systems

Although both sit-in and sit-on-top kayaks are designed to be used without extra seating padding, we know that everyone has a different muscle and bone structure - and after a while even the most hardened of paddlers can get a sore bum or lower back! This is where seating systems come in.

For sit ons, the size & shape of the seat and the attachment points are specifically designed by the boat manufacturer. This means you will generally need to choose a seat which is the same brand as your kayak (as others won't necessarily fit). If you have a classic sit-in kayak, there are a lot of different options available so you may wish to consult with us to work out the best seating system for you.

kayak thigh braces

Like riding a horse with the reigns and no saddle, this is akin to paddling a kayak with a paddle and no thigh braces. Conversely, with the right thigh straps you will gain incredible control of directional movement in your kayak - the craft literally becomes an extension of your body which can be easily manoeuvred with a simple tilt of your hips.

With specific mount points on both the braces and your kayak, you will need align your choice to match your brand of kayak.
