Looking to increase the performance of your Hobie kayak with an MD180-V1 MirageDrive? Consider upgrading with this Turbo Fin + V2 Booms kit. The V2 booms make the removal and installation of fins simpler and are more resistant to shark attacks. The ST Turbo Fins can provide up to a 10% increase in speed compared with standard fins. With these larger and more efficient fins, you can achieve a higher top-end speed and/or a slower cadence for cruising. This means you can go further, or get there faster, for less energy spent pedalling! In addition to improving speed and efficiency, the longer fins also increase lateral resistance, which can be helpful when sailing upwind.

For customers with other MirageDrive variants, the following Turbo Fin upgrade kits are available;
