Hobie evolve Control Unit

Hobie evolve Control Unit

The Hobie evolve Control Unit attaches via a RAM® mounting unit (included) to provide throttle control from your favorite seating position. The LCD screen displays all the trip information you need, such as speed, range, and battery life, while you’re underway. The Hobie evolve Control Unit features a magnetic, key-to-throttle connection safety feature; break this magnetic connection and the motor immediately stops.

Lithium-Manganese Battery v2

A lightweight, 6.6-pound, 320 Wh Lithium-Manganese battery (11Ah at 29.6V) powers the system’s featherweight Torqeedo motor. The battery is buoyant and completely waterproof, ensuring safety and there-when-you-need-it performance. Its built-in GPS unit generates pertinent information such as speed and range.
