A typical Firefly eSUP will cruise at a steady 4-5 knots. At this speed your eSUP feels lively and responsive on the water.
You can plan on traveling up to 5 miles on a typical high speed session and quite a bit further paddling and running the motor at lower speeds.
Speed is controlled using a wireless controller on your wrist. The control system also features an auto-shutoff in case you fall off the board.
Our 24 volt motors are rated at 300 watts of continuous power to keep you zipping right along.
Our lithium-ion batteries have a capacity of 324 watt-hours (Wh),. They feature LED lights that continuously display battery charge level and system operating status.
A Firefly drive adds 9.5 pounds to your board. This weight is centrally located to ensure your board is remains balanced and handles well on the water.
Firefly drives are designed for use in both fresh and saltwater and have a waterproof rating of IP67 for reliable protection.
Firefly drives are design for quick and easy rigging at the beach to get you on the water fast. Simply slide the motor shaft through the board, insert pin, install battery on the board's Velcro strip and you're ready to go.
* Speed based on eSUPs we've built. Tests are performed in calm water with a 175 lb rider without paddling. Paddling will increase speed.
** Firefly drives are built with state of the art ePropulsion Technology.
