The Hobie Mirage Drive has twin underwater flippers that propel you with surprising speed. The pedal-drive system on the Hobie Mirage kayaks makes it a great choice for anglers, photographers and anyone who would like their hands free while in their kayak. Features Standard Fins and new neoprene foot pads and self centering pedals.
I bought the double seat outback mirage when it first came to our area Dec. 05. It is now July 07. I have to say I love this kayak more than any other. The foot peddles are the absolute best. You can switch between a lower body workout to an upper body one! I love the ease of the rudder. My only complain is that the warranty is too short. We have only owned for 18 months and we already have to replace one of the peddles and the other soon. They are not cheap!! Some of the strings around the rudder have broken loose as well. Overall a lot of fun, just expensive.
The basic is sturdier than the Turbo which fell apart on its first use. The basic model broke during the second year of use; so, at least it lasted longer. Over priced for the lack of quality.
Everything came out perfect just as described!
I purchased a used Mirage Tandem but it had only one drive. This turbo drive from ACK performed way above expectations. It significantly outperforms the original drive with standard fins.
