The NK180 brushless kayak motor offers excellent performance and power to any kayaker wanting to increase their range or efficiency on the water - works on both fresh and saltwater bodies.
In 24V mode, the motor can be powered with one lightweight 24V battery, or by two 12-volt models hooked together (we sell 12V Dakota lithiums
that can work well).
Steering cables can be set up to turn the motor like a rudder using your kayak's OEM mounted foot braces, or a pin can lock the motor in a forward drive position and you can use the kayak's existing rudder.
These motors will bolt directly to a 4 bolt PowerPole style stern mount, or can be installed into the deck of a kayak. The mount pivots freely to pass over underwater obstacles, but the durable aluminum motor head is ready for the ones you don't see. Some kayaks have the 4-hole pattern built in, and third-party mounts are available for many models. Other models can be drilled as long as there is a flat space near the stern for the included mount. These major brands are just a few that have several models that are compatible with this motor:
