Hot Seat Kayak Seat – Grande - Forget hassling with block foam, sandpaper and glue to customize whitewater or sea kayaks. Simply peel the backing off the Hot Seat and it permanently secures in the cockpit. In addition to superior comfort and support, the seat also encourages a slightly forward posture to help the paddler better engage and utilize a thigh brace. The hot seat is made from sturdy thermal-molded foam. The Grande is larger than the two others that we offer giving the cockpit a wider range of seating comfort. Its made from soft EVA molded foam with a flexible yet durable "welded on" fabric surface for added longevity. . The Hot seats are available in three styles: Grande (Gray, the one you see here) made wider and longer to accommodate larger paddlers; Spicy (Black) made a bit firmer for handling serious whitewater; Mild (Blue) made softer for calm water touring.
