Coosa FD gives old Jackson new kick – Pedal power is not the only boost the Coosa hull gets

The Coosa FD not only provides a hands-free propulsion system, the proven hull design is updated and includes a host of features.

The Coosa FD, based on the top-selling Coosa HD hull and deck layout, adds a long-awaited pedal-powered Flex Drive system (patent pending) that allows for hands-free propulsion.

The new Flex Drive System offers forward and reverse operation and includes a unique articulating system for deep and shallow water navigation. A daggerboard protected tri-blade propeller combined with articulation gives the Flex Drive a performance increase over other drives and helps with keeping the system clear of obstacles and easy to clean.
The Coosa FD comes with the fore-aft trimming and our Hi-Lo Elite Seat System giving it flexibility in seating positions that puts the pedaler in the most comfortable position possible. The Flex Drive is easily deployed with the flip of a lever, has adjustable pitch, a 1:12 ratio and will be upgradable to a new motor drive system available in 2018.
The Coosa FD has all the the features of the best-selling Coosa HD, from rod tip protection system to gear track surrounding the Ergo Seat and more. The combination of one of the best designed all-around kayaks and the new Flex Drive makes this a leading combination for hands-free kayak angling!
