MirageDrive 180°

Shift Into a New Dimension

The revolutionary Hobie MirageDrive propulsion system has been constantly evolving since it’s launch in 1997. 20 years on, Hobie have introduced the the biggest evolution - so far the Hobie MirageDrive 180 forward-reverse propulsion system that will be integrated into all 2017 model year Mirage kayaks.

Undiminished Returns

Weighing in at 3.6 kilos, the MirageDrive 180 produces full power in both directions and offering unprecedented maneuverability. The user can pull one of two shift cables to pivot the fins 180 degrees, almost instantly from forward to reverse and back again.  When you reach shallow waters, push one foot forward and the other back the fins will go horizontal and hug the shape of the hull allowing easy shore landings and shallow water access.

Have You Got Backup?

Imagine the Possibilities; backing fish out of cover or fishing downstream while holding in current. Hands-free propulsion in any direction means better control over casting presenting baits and landing bigger fish! Pictures can be snapped or a cold drink enjoyed on the way back to shore, without ever stopping.

Shifting the Paradigm

The MirageDrive 180 continues to deliver on Hobie’s legacy for snappy, reliable performance, confidence-inspiring power and all-day efficiency. But this is only one element of what makes kayaking and fishing, Hobie-style, so sweet.
