Since 1950, Hobie® has been in the business of shaping a unique lifestyle based around fun, water, and quality products. From their headquarters in California, Hobie Cat Company and its global subsidiaries produce an impressive collection of watercraft for worldwide distribution. In addition to the sailboats for which they are well-known, Hobie Cat also offers stand-up-paddle boards, kayaks, and boats for both recreation and fishing. Each product line is also complimented with a comprehensive array of parts and accessories.

MirageDrive® with Glide Technologymiragedrive-animation-180x150

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. The MirageDrive pedals can be quickly adjusted to make one boat comfortable for taller or shorter pedalers. Now with Glide Technology, the addition of roller bearings at key friction points reduces resistance for a smooth and efficient ride.

MirageDrive 180°  •  Shift Into a New Dimension

Hobie’s bioengineered MirageDrive propulsion system for kayaks was revolutionary in its inception in 1997 and has been evolving ever since. Now comes the biggest evolution – so far. Introducing the patent-pending Hobie MirageDrive 180 forward-reverse propulsion system that will be integrated into all 2017* model year Mirage kayaks.

Weighing in at under eight pounds, the MirageDrive 180 produces full power in both directions and offers 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. The dual fins provide shallow water access and easy shore landings by simply pushing one pedal forward.
