5 - 5.7 mph
Firefly Drive equipped boards cruise at a brisk 5+ mph. Paddling will increase your speed. We recommend running at full speed to ensure your board is exciting to ride and maneuver.

Firefly batteries lasts 75 minutes at full speed. You can plan a 5 mile cruise on a single battery and 10 miles with dual batteries.
Our 24 volt Firefly motors are rated at 300 watts of continuous power to keep you zipping right along.
Our waterproof lithium-ion batteries are rated at 330 watt-hours (Wh) of power. Add a second battery for a whooping 660 Wh of power for some serious touring. Batteries include LED indicators that continuously monitor your battery’s charge level.
Firefly Drives have the best weight to performance (speed and range) ratio in the industry. Our single battery drive weights in at 9.5 lb and a dual battery drive is only 15 lb.
* Footnote on speed:
Speed is based on testing boards that we sell. Tests are performed in calm water with a 170 lb rider without paddling. Speeds range from 5.0 mph on a 11‘ 6” x 31” surf style board to 5.7 mph on a 14’ x 27” displacement hull touring board
