Hobie Mirage Drive

In 1997 Hobie revolutionised kayaking forever.
Experience 20 years of innovation perfected.

Mirage Drive

The ungainly paddle is replaced by the sheer efficiency of the MirageDrive pedal. With the largest human muscle group now in play, kayaking becomes easier than ever. 

For the last 20 years Hobie have continued to develop and improve upon the original Mirage Drive. They have changed the profile of the fins and the leg cranks. They have changed the way that the leg length is adjusted, they have designed a drive that can go backwards as well as forwards, they have even added fins that kick- up on impact and very recently they launched the 360 Mirage Drive which can take you in any direction. It is difficult to see how the latest Mirage Drive could possibly be improved upon!

There are now 3 different styles of Mirage Drive that are available. Each drive is suited to different kayaks and different budgets. Read on to find out more about the funtionality of the different Mirage Drives and which kayaks they are available on.

New for 2020! Patented Kick-Up Fins deliver care-free kayaking. Logs, kelp, shallows, rocks, no problem.
