Rudder kits

All Klepper Aerius models benefit from the use of a rudder, especially in moving water and in windy conditions, where the handling is much improved. There are two basic types, which are supplied complete with cables and foot pedals (rear paddler steers in a double).

Both styles, kick-up if they are impacted from the front, and can be hauled-up for protection. Either can be used with length adjustable rail-mounted pedals (suitable for 490 and 545) or keelboard clamp-mounted pedals (suitable for 450 and 520).

 

The comfort rudder is has a one-piece dagger style blade, that nice and deep where it can gets plenty of clean water even in the rough. This can be folded flat onto the deck of the kayak. 

 

The original rudder is a completely collapsible (the cross-piece is detachable) and has a shallow blade that is more rounded, making it more suitable for shallow or weedy water.

Spray decks

In bad weather you'll want to keep the weather and rain our of the cockpit area, for safety and comfort. For this you'll need a spray deck. These simply Velcro onto the cockpit coaming and offer quick access for each paddler via a short Velcro side opening. Double cockpits are available in a solo paddling option.

Paddles

Klepper provide a good range of high-quality paddles, specifically for their craft. There is a range of price-points to choose from depending on your ability and needs. What makes them stand out from other manufacturers is the extra long shaft, which makes it easy to reach the water when sat in the craft.

Sails

Klepper Kayaks were made to be sailed. Every model can support a mast in the hole at the front of the cockpit, and there are three basic types to choose from, listed below. Each kit can be quickly folded and packed into a single bag that can easily be stowed on-board.

S1 and S2 kits come with leeboards, and leeboard carrier for extra control and stability but we also recommend the use of inflatable outriggers for ultimate stability and safety. Optional extras include: handtiller, hiking seat, Traveller Downhaul set.

Seats

The standard padded sliding seats, with backrests, are comfortable enough for the casual paddler but as everyone is different shapes you may prefer to look at one of other options such as: The lumbar support to be fitted to a standard seat for extra lower back support; The one-piece Comfort seat with integrated angle adjustable backrest; the Ergo seat with waterproof inflatable backrest that attaches to the cockpit in place of the standard backrest. There are also three seat elevators that can be combined to give a higher paddling position.
