SeaStar Solutions says its new Pro-Pedal is the first foot throttle that can be fully customized to fit both the boat and the driver. The foot throttle is also designed with a durable torsion spring and locking fasteners to improve both reliability and durability.
SeaStar’s Pro-Pedal foot throttle has a compact design that keeps the sole uncluttered and offers more room around the pedal, and an integrated slide makes it easy to adjust the pedal position for different drivers. In use, the Pro-Pedal starts off at a comfortable but adjustable 12.5 degree forward angle, as opposed to a nearly vertical idle position found on other pedal throttles, so the driver’s foot is in a more natural position at slower speeds or when idling. The range of travel from idle to WOT is also adjustable to match individual ergonomics. Whatever travel length is set, the Pro-Pedal will always provide optimal idle-to-WOT throttle control based on engine type. This improves driver comfort and assures maximum performance. A robust torsion spring built into the footplate returns the Pro-Pedal to idle speed position and is designed to eliminate the potential of a broken spring. In addition, the Pro-Pedal uses self-locking fasteners that resist loosening when subjected to extreme vibration.

The Pro-Pedal has been engineered for easy installation and can accept the throttle cable from the back, the front or up to the console. All necessary hardware is included with the unit. The Pro-Pedal is made of cast aluminum and is compatible with a wide range of OEM and aftermarket cables, but performs optimally with SeaStar’s own Xtreme control cables.
Designed and assembled in America, the SeaStar Pro-Pedal will be available starting in December 2018. For more information on SeaStar’s Pro-Pedal, or our complete range of steering and control products, stop by your SeaStar Solutions marine dealer or visit seastarsolutions.com.
