Benefits of Hobie’s Glide Technology (GT) over the classic MirageDrive:

  1. Improved efficiency: The GT drive is designed to minimise friction, which means less energy is needed to propel the kayak forward. This can result in longer and faster trips, with less effort required from the kayaker.
  2. Quieter operation: The GT drive produces less noise than the classic MirageDrive, which can be a plus for anglers or anyone who wants to minimise their impact on the environment.
  3. Greater durability: The GT drive features a number of design improvements that are intended to make it stronger and more durable than the classic MirageDrive. This can help to reduce maintenance and repair costs over time.
  4. Potential for improved comfort: Depending on the user’s preferences, the GT drive may offer a more comfortable pedalling experience than the classic MirageDrive. This can be especially important for longer trips or for users who have specific comfort needs or concerns.
