If you would like the back end of your ski a little tighter in rough water we have developed a larger upgrade rudder for our Xplora 18 skis that can be retro-fitted to all of the current Stealth models, we can also now make a version for Vortex 560 skis. The Xplora rudder features a solid 10 mm stainless steel all-thread shaft to improve its robustness, but thanks to its semi elliptical design it gives you a greater blade surface area without making the pedals feel heavy. The straight edge bottom allows to to paddle shallower water without bottoming out.
While it is always recommended to exit your ski in the shallows rather than beaching your ski, we understand that this is not always possible so we have gone heavy duty with construction from carbon, basalt and Innegra™ protecting a Corecell foam core which reduces the overall weight while giving superior strength and stiffness.
The rudder shaft varies in length according to the volume in the rear of the ski model, so please select your ski from the drop down menu to ensure the correct fit.
