SAN DIEGO, Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bixpy LLC has launched a crowdfunding campaign for the world's smallest, modular and portable water-jet propulsion system. Weighing about 2 lb (1 kg), the Bixpy Jet™ generates enough thrust to drive a full-size kayak or SUP and its occupants up to 7 MPH (11 km/h), with a range of 10 to 15 miles (15 to 25 km) on one battery charge.
Kayakers and standup paddle boarders can now enjoy their adventures more and even troll for fish knowing they can fight wind and water current with the Bixpy Jet™. Snorkelers and scuba divers will now have the security and confidence to explore further on their next adventures.
The Bixpy Jet™ uses the latest in technology and material science to get you maximum output from their lithium-ion battery packs. Additionally, the motors and all of the accessories are saltwater resistant for use in any body of water.
"We've worked incredibly hard to bring Bixpy Jet™ to life, and we're excited to give water sports enthusiasts new ways to enjoy their favorite activity on the water, explore new places and find new adventures," says Houman Nikmanesh, the company's founder, and CEO.
Bixpy's Indiegogo campaign launched on October 19, 2016, reaching over 110% of its funding goal in less than 24 hours! The Jets are now available on Indiegogo (https://igg.me/at/bixpy) starting at the Early Bird Price of $499 (regular retail $750).
In the past few months of its launch, Bixpy has already made quite a splash in the world of Blue Technology.
In October, Bixpy was chosen as a finalist for the "2016 Most Innovative New Product Award", by CONNECT. CONNECT is a premier innovation company accelerator in San Diego, which supports and scales great companies in the technology and life sciences sectors.
Bixpy was also invited to display at the Innovation Alley during TEDxSanDiego along with 20 of the coolest companies from San Diego. TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading ideas in communities around the world. Many of the visitors during the event were blown away by how powerful the Bixpy Jet was when they tested the Jets in our mini pool.
