The Big Rig HD/FD, our most stable kayak, is tricked out and ready for battle.
Rod management is key! Dual rod tubes on both sides of the kayak and oversized rod troughs work in concert with the thermoformed rod-staging risers located beside the seat to keep everything tangle-free and protected.
Large, easy-open latches allow access to the ample storage inside the hull, and we’ve updated the seal for 2021 to keep water out of the hatches. The bow features a hatch bin to keep items stowed away but prevent them from sliding out of reach.
Oversized transducer scupper accepts many modern fish finders, and an electronics pass-through on the bow beside the Flex Drive 3D unit eliminates the hardest part of running wires from inside the hull to the fish finder - drilling holes in your kayak!
Our Flex Drive E accessory allows a quick and easy transition to a motor from the Flex Drive 3D system. Simply twist off two thumb knobs, remove the Flex Drive and replace with the Flex Drive E, connect to battery and motor your way to your favorite fishing hole.

Most unique to the Big Rig HD/FD is the ability to convert from a pedal-driven kayak to a paddle-driven kayak. Simply remove eight bolts, drop in the alternate pod and enjoy the best of both paddling and pedaling worlds. HD configuration features foot-controlled rudder steering and an oversized central storage pod, while the FD uses handles located on both sides of the angler to control the rudder.

The four hole bolt inserts on the stern of the kayak accepts many accessories that feature that pattern, including PowerPole and Torqeedo trolling motors.
Whether you’re fishing lakes, rivers or inshore salt, the Big Rig HD/FD is the ultimate battleship.
THE BEST WATERCRAFT DRIVE SYSTEM
JUST GOT BETTER.
From bow to stern, Flex Drive 3D integrates propulsion, power and precision into a uniﬁed system that delivers unparalleled versatility, efficiency and convenience. Designed from the water up for maximum performance, intuitive use and ease of maintenance; Flex Drive 3D empowers anglers, sportsmen and enthusiasts to get closer to the action. Backward compatible with all Jackson Kayak Flex Drive boats. Check our FAQ page for questions.
The power to get you there. And back.
The new Flex Drive 3D takes fun, freedom and efﬁciency to a new level. Compact and lightweight (under eight pounds), our Flex Drive E motor interchanges with the Flex Drive3D pedal in seconds to offer an effortless power source for getting to and from secret ﬁshing spots, beaches and campsites.
Leaves other systems in its wake.
The only drive system on the market that combines quick-interchange pedal and electric drive, shallow water 3-position engagement with auto retract dagger board/prop safety release, intuitive forward and reverse operation, sealed above-water pedal system, and a satisfaction guarantee warranty.
Precisely where you want to be.
With a history of continuous improvement, we have also enhanced the new FlexDrive3D rudder and stearing control. This improved steering system allows for more precise placement, truer tracking, tighter turning radius’ and less input demands for more hands-free navigation in both forward and reverse. FlexDrive3D Trac2 can be retroﬁtted to any existing FlexDrive3D kayak.
Starting with the upper unit (A), we’ve upgraded the bearings (B) so they are optimized while spinning at relatively low RPM (ideal for pedaling or while using a 12V battery setup with our Flex Drive E). The fit of the crank arm (C) is now more secure and easier to deploy. The spider coupling (D) has been updated to include a time-released lubricant and provides a more secure mating of upper and lower units. We’ve also added easy-access grease ports (E) and a grease accessory kit, which includes a tube of Finish Line grease and a grease gun to make maintenance a breeze. We’ve upgraded the pedal crank arms (F) from cast to forged aluminum, increasing durability.
The upper unit is still a sealed system, which means no gears or moving parts are below the waterline.
We’ve tightened the tolerances on the lower unit (G)’s flexible shaft (H), which results in a dramatic reduction in noise on the water because of the vibration in the lower unit, making it noticeably more quiet.
The propeller (I) is now a two-bladed, 10” x 10 pitch prop which is optimized for pedaling or when using a 12V battery system with our Flex Drive E. This prop maximizes efficiency and cuts through water smoothly, and when used with the Flex Drive E helps the motor go faster for longer periods of time on the water, while minimizing battery consumption.
The lower unit is not a sealed system. This allows water to drain from the system easily.
