Add the Hobie Kayak Sail to all Hobie Pro Angler and Hobie Mirage kayaks, including the Hobie Mirage Outback, Sport, Adventure, Revolution, Outfitter and Oasis to make an amazing little sailboat. You steer with your fingertips, control the main sheet with the other hand and pedal with your feet. The fins of the Mirage Drive provide lateral resistance. The two-piece mast features a boomless sail and a diagonal batten that allows it to be easily rolled up and stowed in the included storage bag.

Added oversized rudder and turbo fins, and found noticeable improvement in kayak handling while under sail.
Be aware that the sail can only be used in very light winds. Over 15 mph and my revolution kayak is very hard to control and almost tips over. It is a fun little extra when the wind is light.
Used the sail on my hobie revolution 11 with sidekick outriggers and worked great in strong winds. Only draw back is the noise the sail makes when unfurled and slack...
The sail is awesome. It performs very well, even for non sailors.
