New for 2019 - Available now
The lightweight, 1 HP equivalent Ultralight motor not only takes you where the fish are, it delivers hands-free kayak fishing, making it the preferred choice of professional anglers for years now. Torqeedo engineers have designed a new angler mount for 2019, which fits the four mounting points built into the stern of most popular fishing kayaks.
Now with this durable, practical and versatile new mount for fishing kayaks, the Ultralight still allows kayakers to go farther and fish longer, with a system that s much easier to mount, easier to use and faster to store and stow.
Two battery options are available 320 and 915 Wh so anglers can choose the capacity that fits their needs, their kayak and their waterways.
The system offers a host of practical new features, including easy motor depth adjustment and a lightning-fast way to safely stow the motor for transport or remove it altogether. Simply pull and secure a cable to tilt the motor up when fishing in shallow waters or near the shoreline. The reverse lock cable allows the motor to be locked down for motoring in reverse (see description below) and then released so the automatic kick-up feature is activated again.
As before, integration with the kayak s steering system is quick and easy, and the onboard computer delivers real-time range and runtime data. The Ultralight includes a tilt sensor and magnetic kill switch, which automatically cut the power if the kayak capsizes.
Touring kayaks, or kayaks without the four standard stern mounting points, can install the Ultralight with the optional mounting ball system.
The unit consists of a shaft with newly re-worked for 2019 pylon, a lithium-manganese battery and a remote throttle. The motor can be tilted into and out of the water during use and is designed completely waterproof, that is, it can even be operated under water.
The motor includes a GPS receiver providing data for a multi functional display that is included in the remote throttle. Information displayed includes battery charge status, remaining range, speed over ground and power consumption.
The motor delivers a maximum speed of some 9.3 km/h and a range of some 100 km at slow speed. Further advantages: connection to kayak rudder provides easy steering (possible for most kayaks), battery charger included in scope of delivery.
