      The propulsion system turns your classic boat into an electrically-assisted craft! 

      Sailing with the Kahe POD takes you further. Propulsion alleviates the effects of wind and currents. It also balances out the levels within a group of people. The Kahe POD is very easy to use: it connects to a SUP, canoe, kayak, inflatable boat or dinghy in place of the fin.

      The remote control is attached to the wrist or paddle using the wrist strap supplied in the pack. It allows you to choose your speed and monitor the level of battery power available.

      Propulsion is silent and light (only 1.7 kg).

      Float tube with KAHE POD

      I fitted the POD to, or rather under, my float tube using a plate glued (like an itiwi paddle) under the float at seat level. It fits perfectly under the boat and doesn't touch the ground during transport. Once in the water, the product does the job without a hitch, with three adjustable speeds via the dedicated app (perfect for vertical drifting). To steer, simply lean to one side or the other, or use your flippers, and there's no battery to carry, no cables and enough autonomy for long sessions. In short, a light and efficient installation at a moderate cost. Nicolas from KAHE will be happy to meet you for further information! Beautiful innovation, bluffing product.

      Great addition to an inflatable kayak (itiwit x100)

      I have a two person Dechatlon itiwit x100 and I recently also purchased this motor at Dechatlon (it's the same motor, just sold under Dechatlon brand). I kayak on the canals in Amsterdam and I wanted something to help me be a bit faster (x100 is very nice and stable inflatable, but due to the wide and stable hull it's a bit slow) and to offset the wind a bit (here it's very rare to have a calm day and quite strong wind is very common).

      I tried different motor positions, but since I paddle myself, sit in the back and I'm also on the heavy side, motor doesn't really work well in the center front fin position since front part of the boat sticks out of the water.

      Aft right fin position works fine and it doesn't affect tracking much even though it's installed on the side and not in the center (you are constantly pedaling and as such adjusting the boat position as well).

      Having said that, in the future I will likely still purchase a glue on fin adapter and install it in the middle close to the aft of the boat.

      So far the motor has been great and exactly what I hoped for / expected.

      I will be able to provide a better feedback on the battery life once I will have more chance to test it under different settings and conditions.

      I also interacted with the Kahe support a bit here and they have been fast, efficient and friendly👍

      P.S. If you want to use this electric assist motor and sail and moor in Amsterdam, make sure you apply for and pay for a yearly green vignette / permit.

      Packraft + pod

      Pod mounted on the front of an itiwit packraft 500

      The pod fits easily into a classic 50/60l touring bag with a packraft and all the necessary navigation gear.

      autonomy is around one and a half to two hours, depending on the speed selected.
      The battery can be changed, but the pod must be removed from the water.
      I get up to 5-6 km/h with just the motor, which is enough to have fun.
      I find it relatively light to carry and not very noisy at low speeds!
      It seems sturdy, but we'll have to wait and see.

      To sum up: A real treat and a childhood dream to go around with your little motorboat in your backpack.

      I love it and recommend it!
      I hope that one day there will be a battery that will double the autonomy!
