Hobie Evolve

Hobie Kayaks introduces it's revolutionary new eVolve Series powered by Torqeedo's Ultralight 402 electric motor. For the first time in kayak history, you're one touch away from quiet, clean, and efficient electric propulsion. Go for hours at a steady two knots, or pour on the juice for a burst of speed. It's your call. This compact, German-engineered motor is custom designed with two different types of Hobie mounts to slip into your existing Hobie kayak. Quietly slip through the bass-choked shallows...Give your muscles a break during a lengthy bay cruise...Introduce a non-paddling friend to kayaking with power...The choice is yours. And with Hobie's new eVolve, you have more choices than ever. Two options available, one for the hard shell kayak series and one for the inflatable kayak series.
