Mirage Inflatable Kayaks

Designed to be easily transported and giving you access to the water when space is critical, the Hobie Inflatable kayak range is designed to meet the needs of individuals or families.

Whether fishing, camping or just taking a stroll the Inflatable range of kayaks are powered by the unique patented Mirage Drive technology.

Mirage Inflatable i9S

Shy on space but big on ambition? Hobie’s i9S was specifically designed for would-be kayakers who are shy on spare acreage but who dream of spending their time kayaking, fishing or sailing (via the optional Sail kit). The i9S’ on-the-water performance rivals that of rigid boats, and its rugged, PVC-vinyl construction and reinforced underside eliminate fears of rocky beaches. A wheeled travel case makes transporting a snap and enables stowage on an RV, car or yacht. The possibilities are endless.

Mirage Inflatable i11S

Elegant simplicity: The new i11S takes MirageDrive motivation and distills it to its essence. This low-profile performer with a rigid inflatable drop stitch hull is the lightest weight hands-free kayak in the Hobie fleet.

Ideal for quick trips after work, or jetting to another continent (while escaping most airline oversize baggage fees). Hop on and go, throw a optional H-Crate in the back and grab a fishing rod. It packs plenty of stability into its low profile design. Plus a fin is provided, to assist when tracking is needed.

Yet fully featured, with Hobie’s supremely adjustable Vantage CTi Seating System and the fingertip control of the Twist and Stow Rudder. The i11s is minimalism, presented in industry leading Hobie style.

Not too big, not too small and infinitely transportable. The i12S’ well-proportioned, PVC-vinyl hull offers speed without sacrificing stability, and an enclosed forward hatch and an above-deck, Bungee-secured storage area provide generous hauling capacity—perfect for weekend escapes or provisioning trips ashore from the family cruiser. The i12S’ MirageDrive delivers all-day comfort and performance. This kayak has the range and capacity of a full-size rigid touring boat but without the storage and transportation demands? The i12S’s wide hull makes for a stable ride, and its MirageDrive® delivers speed, all-day comfort and performance.

Two MirageDrives simplify locomotion, and an optional Sail kit enables you to enjoy everything from a sunrise paddle to an all-day, multi-sport adventure. The i14T’s wheeled storage bag and its pump make hauling, storing and inflating the boat a snap.

Hobie Mirage Inflatable Kayak Features

All Hobie Mirage Inflatable Kayaks are powered by the MirageDrive that lets kayakers pedal, leaving their hands virtually free for other activities like fishing, taking photos, bird watching or holding a favorite beverage. Each boat inflates and deflates quickly and comes standard with a pump and rolling travel bag. They are designed to be transported in cars, trucks and RV's or on larger boats and to be stored in condos or any other place where space is limited. All three are within allowable dimensions for air travel with a surcharge for extra weight. Each one can be pedaled, paddled and/or sailed with an optional sail kit.
