Cruise FD Description

Pedal or paddle with the Cruise FD! The unique prop system helps keep the system clear of obstacles and easy to clean and is protected by an articulating daggerboard. The daggerboard serves to help positioning in the wind and also acts as a keel in adding stability when standing on the deck. The Flex Drive is easily deployed with the flip of a lever and an interchangeable electric motor driven head unit will be released in 2018. The hull of the Cruise FD is sharp and cuts swiftly, silently and efficiently through whatever water it encounters. Combined with an industry-leading turning radius, the Cruise FD is positioned to be a standout on the water. The Cruise FD expands on the new Flex Drive family of Jackson Kayaks with a solid recreational platform that is quick, nimble and ready for casual tours or can be customized for fishing adventures. Miles roll by effortlessly - lets go for a Cruise!

Bought the Cruise FD because…

Submitted by: jvryak on 8/2/2018

Bought the Cruise FD because it was faster and less expensive than the Coosa FD. I really the auto fold-up prop design since I paddle shallow water. Took a bit to get use to the lean back seating position for pedaling - very similar to a recumbent bike. If I paddle a lot, I have to re-adjust the back seat to be comfortable. Prop does protrude into cockpit when parked, the cover does not protect it. My only complaint is the steering - very sloppy - constantly have to adjust to track straight, rudder does not protrude very much, so I will be modifying it by inserting a plexi piece to give it more downward surface area. (U-tube hack). Easy to add flush mount rod holders in the back and extra mounts on gear tracks.
