  • Padz Canoe Contoured Knee Pads

    Q:

    I'm new to canoeing and have bought these pads for my new canoe. Probably a dumb questions, but which side of the pad should be on the canoe wall side?

      A:

      I have put the higher edge of the pad towards the outside of the boat.
      This may not be "correct" but it made sense to me for bracing purposes
      against the outside edge of the boat. Hope that helps.

      My pad is flat. If u have something under your knee to not be on a hard surface is all of is about. I would say do what feels best for u. What some like others do not. U need to be secure ( like knee straps ) and on pads on bottom to be able to get a good stroke. Sit up straight both hands over gunnells. Shoulder pointed toward paddle for normal forward stroke.

      I placed the thicker side out toward canoe side to protect knee from it. Hope this helps!

      A:

      The taller, thicker side of the pads should be on the outside. This is
      because your knees will push outward against them as you kneel in the
      boat.

      Higher side closer to the canoe wall. But before you glue them in you should make sure they are comfortable. I sometimes tape them in place and paddle around in flat water to be sure they are where I want them before I glue them in.

      A:

      I have installed my knee pads with the high edge to the outside. Install
      note: make sure the area is super clean and then place a weight on each
      pad over night to ensure it sticks. I had one fall off, while the boat was
      on the car, and magically it stuck to the roof of the car just enough to
      not get lost.

      A:

      Generally the the higher side (left side in the product photo) should be
      towards the gunwale (the outside of your knee), but it all comes down to
      what feels and works best for you.

    Q:

    Do these pads adhere to Aluminum?

      A:

      I attached these knee pads to a wild river rotomolded plastic canoe and
      they have many miles on them and with heavy abuse and still stuck down
      good. I would assume if they can stick to the plastic this good they would
      have no problem with aluminum.

      A:

      Colin,
      I have a Kevlar and a Rolex canoes so I didn't try the on aluminum. In the past (long time ago I had an aluminum canoe and used an old Ensolite sleeping pad cut into squares and layered up to make knee pads and they stuck to the Al for years until I sold the boat. They will adhere to Al if you use glue made for use with aluminum. Contact cement would probably work best and I'm sure epoxy would work, too. When I got them, they didn't come with adhesive, so I had to buy that separately. I didn't order it from NRS, sometimes volatile/flammable/explosive materials can't be shipped so I just went to the local hardware store and to get the glue. I used a good (i.e. expensive, professional grade, waterproof) contact cement. It's been a while and no issues.
      Good luck & good boating!
      Cheers,
      John

      I purchased these to use on a Royalex canoe so I haven't tried them on aluminum, but they felt like they used a pretty general purpose adhesive that I would expect to stick on most any clean smooth surface. The adhesive felt sticky to the touch like a typical sticker and not the slick feeling of a plastic to plastic adhesive like pvc glue if that was your concern.

      Yes. They have a sticky back.

      A:

      Colin, yes they will stick to aluminum. Clean the surface thoroughly with a good solvent. Using a fine sandpaper to take the sheen off the aluminum will improve adhesion.

      A:

      The adhesive is pretty sticky and worked ok on my Dagger Caper (Royalex) for 1 season. I replaced them with pads I could glue onto the boat when I changed the overall outfitting. Can't speak to how well they'll hold up over longer exposure to water and sun, but I didn't have any issues with them. My suggestion to get the most out of them is to prep the surface by cleaning it well, make sure it's dry and the material temperature isn't too cool - basic considerations you'd take with most adhesives.

                Comments about Padz Canoe Contoured Knee Pads:

                The knee pads went through a rigorous test on a 10-day trip on the upper Yellowstone River. Passed with flying colors. The adhesive never failed.
                My only negative remark is that one pair isn't long enough. I purchased two sets, one set for each knee. This worked but some separation occurred where the knee pads came together.

                      I love the concept of these knee pads, and decided to try the contour ones instead of the straight ones. I found them to be rather uncomfortable, leaving slight bruises around my knees after three days of getting on and off them. I absolutely loved the straight ones but these looked so user friendly, appearing to offer more support. The first day they seemed great, but as I said after a few days of getting on and off them, my legs became very sensitive.
