Hobie iTrek 9 Ultralight

Hobie inflatable iTrek 9 Kayak seen from the side

NEW FOR 2021 the iTrek range of inflatable kayaks.  The concept behind this new range is to make the inflatable kayaks so easy to transport and assemble that you are able to take your Hobie Mirage kayak to places that the Mirage Drive has never been before.  The Hobie iTrek 9 Ultralight is the smallest inflatable in the new range weighing just under 17 kilos.  The iTrek 9 Ultralight is very quick to pump up using the pump provided, the construction is 1000 denier PVC so is strong enough to withstand fishing hooks.  The construction is 18 threads drop stitch per square inch with some threads being diagonal for additional strength- the iTrek 9  can be inflatabed to 10 psi helping it to maintain its rigidity and performance.  The iTrek 9 comes complete with the smooth and durable Mirage Drive GT with kick-up fins so that you don’t need to worry about contact with underwater obstacles.  Thanks to the new design of rudder and steering system the kayak turns on a dime and the rudder can be easily put down into the water or lifted up with one quick pull of the line.  The new style aluminum anodized seat is raised with a comfortable ‘nano’ mesh seat back which is breathable and allows any splashes to pass through keeping you dry and comfortable all day.  The new style chair clips into place firmly and can be installed in seconds.  There are carry handles on the front and back of the kayak, as well as one in the middle so that it can be carried like a SUP Board.  The board also comes with a Stand-Up Paddle so that you can use it as a SUP if you fancy a change.

Part of the new range of inflatable Hobie Kayaks available from Spring 2021.

Due to a huge spike in demand in 2020 and Covid restriction halting production for a while, Hobie are expecting to have a limited supply of kayaks in 2021.  If you would like to be sure that you will get your hands on your preferred kayak for 2021 you would be best to pre-order your chosen kayak as soon as possible.

For Hands-Free Performance

The Mirage Drive GT delivers an ultra smooth ride.  The GT stands for Glide Technology which means a smoother and more efficient movement of the drive. For 2021 the Hobie Passport models now come with Kick-up fins so you never need to worry about underwater obstacles again.  On impact with an underwater obstacle the fins automatically kick-up and then they redeply as soon as you start pedaling again.
