The Hobie MirageDrive Pedal Drive
Welcome to the world of the Hobie MirageDrive®. The ungainly paddle is replaced by the sheer efficiency of the pedal. With the largest human muscle group now in play, kayaking becomes easier and more efficient than ever. Two pedals drive a pair of underwater fins – much like a penguin’s flippers. Whether snapping up to speed with a quick burst or steadily covering expanses of water, the MirageDrive allows effortless freedom and function.
Patented Kick-Up Fins
With Hobie’s patented kick-up fin technology in all its modern drives, carefree pedal kayaking is available across the range. These fins simply kick up if they come into contact with any underwater obstacle, preventing serious damage to the drive and the kayak itself. Once the fin is clear of the obstacle it snaps back into place without skipping a beat. This means getting amongst the structure and shallows is easy and stress-free.
ST KICK-UP FIN: The square-top design increases fin surface area while maintaining a one-foot mast length.
ST KICK-UP TURBO FIN: Add even more speed with an ST Turbo Fin upgrade. Increased fin surface area and mast length provides added resistance and water displacement for more thrust with each stroke.
MirageDrive with Glide Technology (MD-GT)
In 1997 Hobie revolutionised kayaking forever when they introduced the MirageDrive pedal drive. Innovated and perfected over the past 25 years the MD-GT with kick-up fins provides a smooth and efficient ride. Thanks to roller bearings at key friction points and uncompromising build quality this drive will provide confidence-inspiring propulsion so you can go further and pedal longer.
MirageDrive 180 (MD-180)
The MirageDrive 180 with kick-up fins produces full power in both directions and offers upgraded maneuverability for your pedal kayak. The user can pull one of two shift cables to pivot the fins 180 degrees, almost instantly from forward to reverse and back again.
Whether it’s backing fish out of cover, safely fishing closer to obstructions or fishing downstream while holding in current the MD-180s hands-free propulsion has you covered. This freedom means better control to cast, present baits, and concentrate on landing bigger fish when kayak fishing.
The MirageDrive 180 comes standard on the Mirage Outback, Mirage Lynx, Mirage Compass, Mirage Compass Duo, Mirage Revolution 11, Mirage Revolution 13, Mirage Oasis, Mirage Pro Angler 12 and Mirage Pro Angler 14 kayaks.
MirageDrive 360 (MD-360)
Hobie’s new MirageDrive 360 with Kick-Up Fins is the most advanced pedal drive yet, taking the future of kayaking in a new direction – forward, backward, sideways and every degree in between. The MD-360 is as nimble as it is powerful, making it exciting to weave through obstacles and easy to stay on top of fish.
Only Hobie delivers power in every direction with 360 Drive Technology equipped kayaks repeatedly recognized for innovation and engineering excellence, winning the most prestigious awards in the industry. Available exclusively on the Mirage Pro Angler 12 – 360 and Mirage Pro Angler 14 – 360 Series .
