Lay back and cruise in your Hobie kayak without paddling or even pedaling a stroke. Let's face it - you've worked hard all week, why should you work on your day off. Only the plebs peddle or paddle. Leave exercise to the slaves, avoid losing precious calories and dominate in style. Rest your legs for more important things, like shuffling to the bar and summiting the steps of the pie shop. SLH ElectroLite - it's got what legs crave!
The ElectroLite is our custom modified kayak motoring system for Hobie pedal kayaks, and is exactly what you'd get if a Watersnake ASP T24-SW Kayak Motor made sweet love to a Hobie cassette plug. It plugs into the drive well of your Hobie in place of the pedals and provides up to 24lb of forward or backward thrust. It's light enough to be carried on board and easy to deploy when needed, drawing a depth of around 25cm under your hull. Note: we use both standard and large cassette plugs to build these. More notes below if you're unsure which one to choose
We recommend the FPV 50amp lithium battery due to its compact size and light weight (2.8kg), which according to FPV, would give the average user up to 2.5 hours run time (depending on kayak size, weight and conditions) at full throttle speed. The ElectroLite comes with a 1.5 meter power cord fitted with alligator clips for quick attachment to your choice of battery, but if you order the FPV battery with the motor we will replace the clips with the HD Anderson plug that is used on the FPV 50 AH battery.
