KAPE Racing Seat with Rails
These ergonomically designed fiberglass (or carbon) racing seats are made for the heaviest duty. They are mounted to all RACING kayaks as standard by two pairs of eloxed aluminium rails. This rail system provides a 2-way adjustability and an extreme reliability and durability.
SET-UP & INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
All parts of the seat are made by various plastics, aluminium to extent its lifetime in humid conditions.
An eloxed aluminium mounting rail (S11R1) is fixed to the seat by four little bolts. These L-profile mounting rails have arched upper edges to fit the bottom of the seat. This make the seat to be adjustable in height at three positions.
The lower edges are punched per 2 centimeters. Through these the railed seat can be easilly fixed to an another pair of eloxed aluminium connecting rails (S11R2) that are bonded to the floor of the boat. These connecting rails are punched per 3 centimeters. Combining them with the holes of the mountung rails precise adjustment is possible.
Once you’ve put the railed seat onto the connecting rails and set to right distance you can easily fix it by your hand using 4 bolts with nylon knurled nut (M111).
There are two ways to fix the mounting rails to the seat: The lower edges could be made outward-facing or inward-facing. This defines two hole intervals in width. In bigger models the connecting rails are bonded further away from each other on the boat floor. For this bigger hole interwal you should fix the mounting rails to the seat outward facing.
