Wilderness Systems - Helix Motor Drive


Wilderness Systems Helix Motor Drive

The Helix MD Motor Drive simplifies the experience of kayaking by taking you farther, faster. Partnering with the proven technology of Torqeedo, the Helix MD Motor Drive is a step ahead in the world of kayak propulsion technology.

With top speeds reaching up to 6 mph at a range of around 20 miles, it features a solar-rechargeable lithium battery that lasts up to 8 hours and can charge while underway. The lightweight unit weighs only 15 pounds, including the battery, and comes equipped with an intelligent remote throttle that displays your GPS-calculated speed, remaining range and battery runtime.

Fully variable forward/reverse functionality allows you to set the throttle to your desired speed so you’re free to fish with two hands. Quiet, low-maintenance, and easy to integrate and use with compatible Wilderness Systems kayak models, the Helix MD Motor Drive is an all-access pass for all kayakers of all ages.
