The Vibe Bixpy-Ready Gravity Rudder is the first rudder in the market specifically designed to accept a motor as an option. The bottom portion of the rudder is quickly and easily replaced with a Vibe Kayak Gravity Rudder - Adapter Only and Bixpy J-1 PowerShroud™ Motor to turn every kayaking trip into a kayaking adventure!
The Vibe Bixpy-Ready Gravity Rudder offers a molded 10mm stainless steel pin that offers easy installation and not only fits all Vibe kayaks but can replace most other manufacturer rudders in seconds! It also offers a robust double hinged, 90° Slide and Stow mechanism that gets the rudder completely out of the water in a heartbeat.
The Vibe Bixpy-Ready Gravity Rudder also features a gravity driven locking mechanism that allows the rudder to lock into place when motorized in forward or reverse. However, since the locking only occurs with gravity, the rudder easily “unlocks” and pops up to protect your motor and rudder in shallow water. Steering is done with robust and adjustable foot pedals.
