 Product Description and Specs

The Hobie Mirage ST Turbo Fin Kit upgrades the Mirage Drive with new fins and masts to increase the surface area by over 10 percent. Hobie Mirage kayak users report as much as a 10% increase in speed and more using ST Turbo Fins. But its not all about speed, you can get top end speed and a slower cadence for cruising (Less pedals per mile). All achieved with this larger and more efficient fin design. The longer fins can also increase lateral resistance for sailing upwind. The ST (Square Tip) designs will require a bit more effort to pedal. The added effort is commonly compared to pedaling a bike up a slight incline. In addition, the included fin tension screw allows adjustment to achieve lower end torque or top end speed to meet individual preferences.

• The Hobie Mirage Turbo Fin Kit will make you the envy of your paddling community
• Kit includes two fins and two masts
• Threaded kits are for all Mirage Drives that the masts screw into sprocket (post July 2008)
• Fin tension screw allows adjustment to achieve lower end torque or top end speed to meet individual preferences
• Discounts and/or coupons do not apply to this item

Great upgrade, I did my outback first then my wife decided she needed a pair. She didn't like getting beat. These will allow us to explore more with less effort. Next will be the rudder. I had to replace a sprocket because I could not remove the shaft. Easy to do and Hobie parts are very reasonably priced. Great company.

I bought these fins as an upgrade on my Outback, however I'm still deciding whether I really like them better than the original fins. They definitely give you more speed,..however it comes with a noticeable increase in effort required to move the pedals now. Not that it's become a real strain, but I used to be able to cruise at slow speed with almost no pedaling effort and now I find myself thinking about it more! One place where they are definitely nice however, is when you need to move against moderate wind & current!

These work well. I just took my Hobie Oasis tandem down to Cape San Blas for a week of fishing in the bay and gulf. I put about 10 miles on it and the turbo fins helped accelerate away from the beach and through the wind/current. They are a bit longer, so had to be careful on the bay side where it was shallow at low tide. I did hit the bottom a few times but no damage to the fins, had to just do short strokes until we hit deeper water. If you were planning on going in very shallow water, the regular fins would be better choice as these are a few inches longer and need slightly deeper water.

Q: I'm thinking of upgrading my v2 standard fins with ST fins (not Turbo). Do I need to order the kit or just the ST fins?
