Like the footbrace, the backrest uses a combination of aluminum tubing and HDPE. The backrest "snaps" onto an aluminum tube that is affixed to the back of the coaming. The backrest pivots to adjust to the paddlers back position. The overall depth of the backrest is 2.5". The entire unit can easily be removed if not required.
