Hands-free propulsion in both forward and reverse.
Instantly spin the fins from forward to reverse with a quick pull of the shifter cable. Unlike any other pedal system, the Mirage Drive 180 produces full power in both directions enabling you to easily back off a beach or away from a dock, pull fish out of cover, and hold position in a swift current.
Hobie’s new kick-up Mirage Drives mean that you no longer need to worry about underwater obstacles or shallow patches of water. On impact with an obstacle the Mirage Drive fins retract and then once you start pedaling again they redeploy.
The Mirage 180 Kick-up is available with either standard of Turbo fins for extra power. The other kayaks with MD 180 can be easily upgraded to Turbo fins for an additional cost, take a look at the Turbo Fin Upgrade Kit.
