The wire skeg from Kari-Tek is standard in our kayaks as most people find it has the most suitable mix of ease of use and maintenance (please see mouse over effect of the kayaks and skegs in the section Sea kayak range). The skeg blade is a simple blade that pivots at one end. All standard kayaks have a moulded fibre glass skeg box.
The wire slider control box is fitted in the seam, not in the way and easy to use.
The standard glass skeg box is slightly smaller than the injected plastic skeg box that is used for the hydraulic skeg and skeg-rudder (please see Skegs in Custom features). If you think you might want one of these custom skegs in the future, you may want to go for the smaller, injected plastic skeg box when you order your kayak.
