Weight placement is critical in all canoes and particularly in today's shorter whitewater solo canoes. An inch too far forward or back throws the whole boat’s performance off. This high density mini-cell foam saddle is built large to allow custom shaping once installed, if required. The size allows you to lean farther forward for micro-surfing, enabling more reach and weight into your strokes. When set up with adjustable anchors and toe blocks, a perfect fit is assured.
