Hobie’s bioengineered MirageDrive propulsion system for kayaks was revolutionary in its inception in 1996 and has been evolving ever since. The MirageDrive 180 forward-reverse propulsion system is integrated into most MirageDrive kayaks. 

Weighing in at under eight pounds, the MirageDrive 180 produces full power in both directions and offers unprecedented manoeuvrability. The user can pull one of two shift cables to pivot the fins 180 degrees, almost instantly from forward to reverse and back again. The dual fins provide shallow water access and easy shore landings by simply pushing one pedal forward. New for 2018 are ARC cranks that adjust with the push of a button to accommodate users from child size to tall adults.

Imagine the Possibilities: backing fish out of cover; safely fishing closer to obstructions; or fishing downstream while holding in current. Hands-free propulsion in any direction means better control: to cast, to present baits, and to concentrate on landing bigger fish. Pictures can be snapped or cold beverage enjoyed on the way back in without ever stopping.

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.
