The Bixpy J-1 PowerShroud™ Motor is a compact, lightweight, high-performance marine motor designed and optimized specifically for personal water propulsion and small watercraft - kayaks, canoes, paddleboards.
While most marine motors try to achieve more power using larger batteries and propellers, Bixpy has completely reinvented the trolling motor by borrowing technologies from hydro-electric dam turbines, jet engines and airfoil technics used in aerospace applications.
The combination of the technologies used to achieve this perfect harmony of optimized power in an ultra-compact package is called a PowerShroud™ Motor. It features an optimized impeller jet system that is designed to work more efficiently than a conventional propeller or a conventional hydro-jet.
The ducting system eliminates unwanted vortices, eliminating power robbing cavitation and drag problems associated with conventional technologies and propellers.
In turn, this PowerShroud™ technology allows Bixpy™ to create a far more compact, lightweight, streamlined motor that gives you the thrust you need without the size, weight or bulk. Simply put, you get more power per pound!
And, the low profile design means far less drag when the motor is off and you are paddling (a significant advantage) and fewer weed issues, too!
The compact size of this mighty motor has allowed us to adapt it to a variety of applications otherwise impossible using conventional marine motors. Allowing us to create more than a dozen adapters to let you motorize virtually any personal watercraft.
In addition to the design elements, we have spent a tremendous amount of time and resources sourcing and formulating plastics and metals that will not only survive the harshest conditions, but that are extremely lightweight and remarkably durable. To ensure a long lasting seal in salt or freshwater, we worked closely with our partners abroad to source the most corrosive resistant stainless steel on the planet for our motor shaft, a stainless steel that will far outlast the industry gold standard SS316.
All exposed bolts are SS316 with an added titanium coating to further withstand salt and sun. The motor’s heat sinks are made of aircraft grade anodized aluminum. Many of the main plastic components are made of a specialized ABS or ABS/polycarbonate infused with an anti-UV formulation to help withstand salt and sun. Where impact and movement come into play, we use a proprietary glass-filled nylon formula that is treated to last in saltwater and sun while also capable of taking a punch. All in all, we have left no stone unturned in sourcing and formulating materials that are made to last and withstand the harshest conditions one can throw at them. In short, you just can’t beat a Bixpy™!
