Steering tends to be less precise with this type of rudder but it is the best solution when underwater obstructions may be encountered. It's greater resistance to damage is particularly valuable to the younger crews in races such as the Devises Westminster Canoe Race when tiredness can affect the efficiency of boat handling.

The elastic strap keeps the rudder down if it is knocked. Complete sets can be purchased complete, or individual components. K1 and K2 blade sizes available.

Cable nipples sold separately.
