Hobie XL Rudder upgrade for Mirage Passport 10.5 and 12.0 kayaks
This upgraded rudder gives users up/down control from the seat, and boosts maneuverability and lateral stability. When turning in tight quarters, or sailing the Passport 10.5 or 12.0, this rudder has more authority than the stock rudder. Not only does the larger blade improve performance, it also allows the user to stow the rudder when going extremely shallow. The up/down control feature is particularly useful in launching and landing situations, or when clearing debris from the rudder blade.
