Seats for FITNESS kayaks
A low position plastic seat is at the bottom of the boat, providing relative stability. This seat type allows a low angle paddling technique, so it is an ideal choice for beginners and intermediate paddlers. The seat is mounted to the floor of the boat by a pair of toothed plastic rails & T-bolts (excl. MasterSpeed 44 & Marino 565).
HINT: if the choice is uncertain, feel free to choose the Touring Seat and ask for a Racing Seat as a spare part. However the two seat types are non-convertible (not interchangeable), it is much easier to retrofit from Touring Seat to the Racing Seat than vice versa.
HINT: if the boat is going to be for club use (many people of different heights will use it) ask for a pair of double rails. This makes the seat to be adjustable on a bigger range.
Racing Seat provides an approx. 5 cm higher seat position, allowing closer catch & higher angle paddling, letting practice a more advanced & efficient technique. Of course the higher center of gravity decreases the stability of the boat.
The seat distance can be set in 7 positions, the height of the seat is adjustable in 2 positions.
