The time has come for true innovation in motion with the new, patent-pending Helix PDTMPedal Drive*. Featuring a 6:1 gear ratio precision-tuned to a 14 x 17 two-bladed fixed pitch prop, the Helix PD is the most efficient and intuitive pedal system ever engineered. Fully deployed, the system is optimized for maximum speed in exchange for less effort so you can be hands-free to fish all day. A groundbreaking auto-raising mast achieves zero draft with a spring-loaded kick pedal, and the unit can be further stowed forward and out of the way to complete the 3-phases of possible positioning. Tuned to the proven performance of Wilderness Systems’ S.M.A.R.T. Hull designs, Currently The Helix Pedal Drive is only compatible with the Wilderness Systems Radar 120 or Radar 140.
So here is my take on the pedal drives…They are FUN ! Sure you can fish from one hands free, but there are just a lot lot of other things that the pedal drive helps with too…Wildlife photography for instance. Just pedal for hours and enjoy life. If it helps you accidentally become more fit, well I’m sorry we wouldn’t want that to happen now would we ? These boats are also surprisingly quick and did I mention FUN ? Men, If you don’t want your wife to become your new outdoor partner, then I suggest you NEVER let her try a pedal drive kayak. You have been warned.
