This incredible microjet motor can power you along at up to 10kph, although the best way to use it is as a paddle assist (kind of like an E-Bike, you still paddle, but it's much easier) using it this way you can extend your range from 10km to 25km+!
It's not just about making it easier to get around, the other cool advantages are that you can fish or take photos and video totally hands-free, the steering is done via the footrests controlling the rudder and direction of the motor's thrust. This allows you to hold your position in wind and current very easily. When it's time to head back in it's very nice to cruise along with little effort, even if there is a headwind or current.
If you have a partner or smaller person that would like to come along but aren't strong paddlers, then this is the perfect solution! They can come and really enjoy their time on the water with you.
The unique feature that separates this motor from all others is the micro-propeller, at just 60mm wide it creates almost NO DRAG when you want to paddle your kayak without the motor running. You simply paddle and use the rudder as you normally would.
Other motors have large propellers that, due to the huge amount of drag they create, must be lifted from the water when you want to, or need to, paddle without the motor running. This can destabilise the kayak and removes the ability to turn and manoeuvre easily. These large and heavier motors don't bolt neatly to your rudder blade either, they normally require bulky mounting hardware and large, heavy batteries.
