In the pursuit of continual improvements, Bixpy has announced a new version of the Universal Transom adapter. More robust in every way, and includes the tiller arm in different lengths as well. Bixpy has also released the Easy Mount Slipstream adapter (also known as the Primal mount) which features a Power Pole hole pattern that will fit onto a number of popular kayak and SUP models that are Power Pole ready; Bonafide, Hobie, Kaku, and Bote to name a few. If your kayak comes with a 10mm pin style rudder, then the recently released Bixpy Universal Rudder Adapter would work well. We’ve personally tested this configuration on a few kayaks including the Vibe Sea Ghost, Vibe Yellowfin 120 and 130T, as well as Bonafide SS127’s. Setting these up with the already installed foot steering is seamless and a breeze to set up. Whichever route you go, all configurations easily mount quickly and cleanly. Bixpy has really stepped up their game with the versatility of mounting options and ease of use. Check out all of the products mentioned at the bottom of the post.
