Product Details

When you've got sporty cat tubes you need a frame with as much athletic prowess. Whether you're running exciting day stretches or packing for multi-day trips, the NRS Sport Cat Frame meets the demands.
  • Designed to work with cat tubes 23" and smaller in diameter, the lightweight NRS Sport Cat Frame delivers a package that dances across the water.
  • Recommended for smaller-diameter cat tubes, it's an excellent choice for the AIRE Ocelot.
  • The center of the horizontal section of the drop rail is 6 1/4" from the center of the top side rail, to provide the appropriate distance for strapping down the frame through the cat tube inner D-rings.
  • The drop rails extend to the ends of the top side rails so other cross members can be located precisely where you want them.
  • Since the drop rails can be adjusted for width, you can achieve the same internal cargo capacity you'd have with a 72" yoke-style frame on most smaller diameter cataraft tubes.
  • Hot-forged aluminum alloy LoPro™ Fittings are the heart of the NRS frame system, and allow complete adjustability for all frame parts.
  • NRS 8" Oar Mounts are also constructed with hot-forged aluminum alloy resulting in a lighter, sleeker and stronger Oar Mount, and a nylon insert reduces rowing friction.
  • Create your rower's seat bar for the padded Drain-Hole Seat by U-bolting the Universal Seat Mount to one of the cross bars. This allows you to precisely set the location of the seat and the seat angle.
  • Frame includes: Two Side Rails, two Sport Cat Drop Side Rails, four Cross Bars, Universal Seat Mount, Deluxe Foot Bar, High-Back Drain-Hole Seat, 8" Oar Mounts, two 9' NRS Straps and four Strap Slides.

Product Instructions

  1. Lay out the frame parts as shown in the image above.
  2. Attach the Universal Seat Mount to the center of one of the cross bars.
  3. Attach drop rails to the cross bars as show in picture above and install the U-bolts. Add nuts and washers, leaving them loose.
  4. Set the additional cross bar and seat bar on the side rails and install the U-bolts. Add the washers and nuts, leaving them loose. Adjust the cross bar so that it fits against the cooler or dry box snugly. If any of the bars need to be re-positioned, it may be necessary to remove the U-bolts to make adjustments.
  5. Add the deluxe foot bar and oar mounts. Tighten all the nuts that you previously installed.
  6. Check to be sure that all of the U-bolts are tight. Periodically check the tightness of all nuts and bolts.
