Plentiful. Intuitive. Refined.
(1) Select the user or set the desired speed using the rotary knob.
(2) Press the ON/OFF button to engage the system.
(3) Push the throttle down.
That’s it -- Ridesteady does the rest. Need to take over? Simply pull back on the throttle to temporarily disengage the system.
Control panel with rotary knob and graphic LCD
The sleek, dash-mountable control panel features a black aluminum or optional stainless steel bezel to complement your instrument panel. The machined, solid aluminum knob makes changing the 50-custom users or settings a pleasure. The sunlight-viewable, backlit graphic LCD display, which can be set to dim when the navigation lights are turned on, puts all the important information in a easy-to-read, real-time format.
Ridestats keep track of the user’s current ride-time, day ride-time, and all-time ride-time. It also displays the percentage of ride-time compared to all other users for the day, and all-time. Use this feature to promote ride-time fairness, fuel sharing, training time, or just-for-fun.
Instant restart with timed-standby
The timed-standby function keeps the GPS actively tracking satellites even when the engine is off. This allows for an instant restart and keeps useful information on the screen such as the air and water temperature, battery voltage, and large-font time. Riders will appreciate not having to decide between a safe boat entry with the engine off or a quick speed control restart time. Now you can have both.
Real-time air and lake temperature
Want to know how painful that first run of the season will be, before taking the plunge? The LCD continuously displays the air and water temperature in real-time, even during active speed control, with the optional temp sensors. The best part? You often don’t need to drill any holes in your boat!
Adjustable overshoot control
Tweak your overshoot control preference using our intuitive menu system, and then watch your boat hit the set speed fast with little or no overshoot. It's great for getting back up to speed for multiple runs when trying out a new trick.
More juice for your tunes
Let your battery and alternator power your engine and sound system instead of your speed control. Ridesteady uses intelligent, power-sipping throttle motor technology to cut power consumption in half with no need for those big, hot, power-wasting resistors.
Our “throttle reduction” technology mechanically prevents the speed control from going any faster than the driver allows; all electrical parts have independently passed USCG, ISO, and NMMA standards for ignition protection, and the system has undergone hundreds of hours of on-water testing on several boat types, to give you the safest possible operating environment.
Mechanical throttle compatibility
The Ridesteady speed control system works well with a wide range of boats, both fuel injected and carbureted, with mechanical throttle connections. Our unique “parallel throttle connection” lets you avoid the obstructions and interference caused by cable movement during operation.
