The Hobie Mirage 180 with turbo fins gives you hands-free propulsion in both forward and reverse. The twin underwater turbo flippers propel you with surprising speed. The new MirageDrive features Hobie's MD180 shifting technology to go from forward to reverse in a moment. The new Mirage Drive still features the popular Glide Technology so you can pedal faster, more efficiently. The turbos fins provide a larger surface area for maximum 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 Turbo Fins and neoprene foot pads and self centering pedals.
Love the new 180 mirage drive! It was used in very rocky sections on Narragansett Bay. Very effective when fighting Stripers in tight areas. The drive “almost” fit perfectly in my 2012 outback. A little improvising, and now it’s perfect. Well worth it!!
Love the new drive!! The reverse came in handy in rocky Narragansett bay. I did use it a few times when fighting Stripers. It definetly has more power than my old “flexible” fins on my older drive. I do make sure that the fins are straight down before engaging the reverse function. Very smooth!!
