K37D Kayak Thigh Strap Details

  • The straps are a set of 4.
  • They are elasticised so that they stay taut and close to the tubes when not in use.
  • The adjusting buckles are cam-lock. In an emergency they can be released simply by pulling back on the ends of the adjusting straps.
  • The knees when bent pass up through the straps. To escape from the thigh straps simply straighten the legs.
  • The straps are effective enough on some boat models (for example our K30X) and with skilled paddlers to allow Eskimo rolls. We have not heard whether this has been done with the K37 (a 2 person boat), but the old Incept K34 could be rolled.
