The Hobie Kayak Mirage Drive

 

One of Hobie’s revolutionary enhancements to their kayaks is the Hobie Kayak Mirage Drive. Hobie utilizes a Mirage Drive in some of their kayaks which is a peddling system. This Mirage Drive allows you to peddle when you don’t feel like paddling anymore or if you want some added speed when paddling. You’ll be able to use the skeg to help with tracking as you peddle away. It took Hobie to develop this idea into a reality. As you watch the video you’ll see how the Mirage Drive works to help build speed and how you can cruise pretty steadily with minimal effort. Anglers love the Mirage Drive because it allows you to track fish easily while keeping your hands on the fishing rod. Whether you’re an angler or like to peddle in the calm flat water, even if you want to do tandem kayaking, Hobie has one with a Mirage Drive system for you. Not all Hobie Kayaks are outfitted with this Mirage Drive system but those who decide to check out these kayaks immediately fall in love with their ease of use and convenience.
