Thanks for the question. This version of the Manitou does not come with a rudder. Necky makes a version of this called the Manitou II Kayak with Rudder, however we currently do not have any of that version available. This kayak has an optional rudder listed as you can purchase the rudder kit separately and mount it to your kayak yourself (Rudder kit here: http://store.neckykayaks.com/products/310593/Manitou_II_Rudder).
This kayak has a weight of 79 lbs / 35.8 kg. I hope this helps!
