Ultimate Volt & Pedal Drive System
Two new ways to get around in the Native Ultimate Kayak
We all know what an outstanding boat the Native Watercraft Ultimate is. From the tunnel hull design that makes this craft so stable, to the first class seats and the generous storage space for gear, this was one of the top paddling boats last year.
But if you are like me, you are always looking for a new way to get around on the water. Native is now offers two new options for getting around the water quickly, the Ultimate Propel and the the Ultimate Volt, both come in 12 & 14.5 versions.
The Propel Pedal Drive System is a propulsion system that is extremely easy to use. This system offers full boat control with forward and reverse capabilities. It has a 1:10 drive ratio that converts each pedal crank into ten revolutions of the prop. This will help you go further using less energy. The internal drive unit is completely sealed to protect it from debris, which makes it virtually maintenance free. The drive uses a pivot system to lower and lift it out of the water easily. It is secured with a pin once in place, and a flow plate prevents backwash from entering the boat.
The Volt is a unique electric drive that allows boaters to travel from spot to spot quickly. The Volt can travel approximately 5 MPH and is very easy to handle. It gives the "paddler" a tight turning radius and reverse capability, making backing up and overall maneuvering easier than ever.
Both systems are made from marine grade anodized aluminum and stainless steel components, and a non-corrosive epoxy finish protect the units, even during salt water use.
The Native Ultimate was a fantastic boat to begin with, but the Volt and Propel systems take it to a whole new level. Check these boats out today.
