Foil Drive Gen2

Foil Drive are stoked to announce the future of electric hybrid foil assist. They have just released the Gen2 Foil Drive Assist MAX & Assist Slim. The Foil Drive Assist Slim is the smaller, lighter, performance-oriented model, for the ultimate in performance hybrid electric assist foiling. Despite its small size, it offers plenty of thrust to get you on foil easier and sooner, though the smaller batteries do reduce the run time. The Foil Drive Assist MAX is the flagship model, for the ultimate in hybrid electric assist foiling. As the name suggests, the Assist MAX offers the maximum thrust, run time and versatility! Foil Drive gives us the full info: 

Three years of design, testing and development has brought us here, to the original hybrid dream; ride any board, any foil, any way you like. With the experience and community backing we have grown and developed over the last few years, Foil Drive as a brand and a product is coming of age, and ready to enhance the foiling experience forever.


Proudly South Australian, our ever-growing team is driven by founders Paul and Ben. Celebrating three years of operation late 2023, we’ve gained global recognition and a dedicated following of Foil Driver’s worldwide. We have also expanded our support
further by opening a European HQ.


The Assist MAX is exactly that, an all rounder with maximum power, runtime, thrust and versitility. This is the largest Foil Drive suitable for any rider at any skill level!

  • Max Thrust: 27.5kg (60.6lbs)
  • Weight Range: 3.4 – 4.5kg (7.4 – 9.9lbs)
  • Max Dimensions: L525 x W250 x H50mm
  • Min Dimensions: L415 x W250 x H50mm


The Assist Slim is smaller and lighter with a shorter run time, designed for performance foiling. It offers enough power for assisted foiling, while remaining super compact!

Each of our Assist Kits are compatible with their own Foil Drive batteries that offer different benefits for different use cases, runtime, power, weight and compatability are all key variables. The Lithium-Ion Battery Cells used in the Foil Drive systems feature the highest energy density available while maximising the power output, run time and performance of the system. This means we really are packing as much as we can into such a small space! We highly recommend reading our information about Battery Care & Storage avaialble on our online Help Centre.
