The Bixpy Jet Outboard Kit for Kayaks is unlike any other outboard kit you've seen before. This kit comes with a thruster and an outboard Power Pack, providing you with the ability to jet off in an instant! The electric outboard motor has been developed to work with virtually every kayak on the market, including but not limited to, Bonafide, Hobie, Vibe, Riot, and Viking. This motor allows you to explore places you never thought possible in your kayak, or it can simply bring you back in after a long day of paddling.
This motor is equipped to handle both freshwater and saltwater, so moving through currents and waves is no problem! Although this outboard is extremely light, coming in at only 9 pounds, it is built so efficiently that it can last for up to 10 hours out on the water. Running this at top speed, which is roughly between 4.5-6.5 mph depending on your kayak and set up, will run you at about 75 minutes of continuous use. If you are opting for a slower speed and just using on and off throughout the day, at roughly 1.3-1.6 mph, you are looking at one charge to last you up to 10 hours!
To make sure you've always got enough juice left, you always check the battery's status via the LED power indicator located on the top of the Power Pack. Wireless remote control allows you to control the motor within a 25-30 ft range, easily allowing you to stand up on your kayak and turn the motor on or off. Your jet motor has 12 forward speeds and 3 reverse speeds, giving you more control than ever before.
Since safety is a top priority at Bixpy, the motor will not run unless you have the magnetic kill-switch leash attached to the Power Pack. In the unfortunate event that you need to utilize the kill-switch, you have two different options. The first is simply disconnecting the leash for an automatic kill, or you can run the motor at 50% power by activating the emergency maneuver.
Four and a half hours is all it takes the lithium-ion battery to fully charge your Power Pack for a long day on the water. If needed, there is an auxiliary outlet on the back of the Power Pack that can be connected to the Bixpy 5V and 12V auxiliary cables to charge your electronics. If having the ability to power yourself on the water is important to you, then this Bixpy Outboard Kit is an absolute must-have!
After you've decided to make an investment into a Bixpy Jet system, the next step is to select your kayak and canoe adapter that fits your needs. Adapters are available for specific brands, such as Bonafide and Hobie, and there are also universal adapters available.
