Pedal-power – a fun way to get out on the water! The Bionx Seascape 12 does have a set of pedals that work independently, but it also has a variable assist propulsion (VAP) system. VAP gives you an extra boost so that as you pedal, the electric power kicks in and allows you to reach a maximum speed of 5 knots (5.8 mph). With a load capacity of 680 lbs, it seats 2 adults comfortably, and the front deck can hold 2 children. This pedal-powered/electric hybrid comes in 5 bright colors.
