Hobie Mirage Drive

The Hobie MirageDrive is Hobie's hands free peddle drive system that replaces the need to paddle with your arms. The ungainly paddle is replaced by the highly efficient MirageDrive peddle system leaving your hands free for fishing or anything else you wish to do rather than paddle.

Mirage Drive Fin

Fin Options

ST Fin

Standard on most 2015+ Mirage kayak models, the ST Fin square-top design increases fin surface area while maintaining a one-foot mast length.

ST Turbo Fin

Add even more speed to your MirageDrive with a ST Turbo Fin upgrade (standard with Pro Angler and Island Series). The increased fin surface area and mast length provide added resistance and water displacement producing more thrust with each stroke.

Frequently Asked Questions

How deep does the water need to be to use the MirageDrive?

The required depth varies a bit from model to model, but, on average, the water only needs to be about 45 cm deep when using standard fins. A shorter stroke can be used in stretches of shallower water.

How much maintenance does the MirageDrive require?

Not much. We recommend a quick rinse with fresh water when you're done for the day and an occasional spray with silicone lubricant.

Is the MirageDrive Removable?

Yes. The Click and Go mounting system allows you to quickly remove the MirageDrive for cleaning and storage.
