Hobie Kayaks i12s 2019


Hobie’s inflatable iSeries was specifically designed for people are limited on storage space but who dream of spending their time kayaking, fishing or sailing (via the optional Sail kit). It packs nicely within its own rolling travel bag, so it can fit in the trunk of your car, on your boat, in your motor home — you can even take it on the plane for your next vacation. The i12s has a 12ft hull length, making this suitable for pedalling over longer distances for touring/exploring and kayak fishing and will perform well on inland waters and calm-to-moderate coastal conditions.


Drop stitch floor technology combined with durable 1000D PVC Hull construction allows for the i12S to be inflated to a high pressure, forming a rigid solid-feel hull. The super comfortable Vantage CTi seat system allows you to pedal without getting back ache. The raised seating position of the Vantage seat off the deck makes for a drier, more comfortable ride. The seat is fully adjustable and features Boa Lumber support.


The i12s features the new Mirage Drive 180 full power pedal drive in forwards... and reverse! Switching between forwards and reverse is as simple and easy as pulling a toggle on the drive system. The drive system features 'Glide Technology' with roller bearings found on the major pivoting components of the drive, for a smoother and easier pedalling experience. The i12s also comes with a 4 piece paddle, with on-deck storage, incase you fancy a paddle workout. The fingertip steering of the twist-n-stow rudder system offers the user hands free travelling, ideal for fishing, photography or bird watching.


There is plenty of on-deck storage space too, and enough gear for a weekend camping trip can be stored in the rear tank well, which features bungee cords to keep everything held down to the hull.


If you are looking for a high-performance inflatable kayak for use on inland waters and on the coast, but are limited on storage space, then look no further than the Hobie i12s.

Hobie Mirage Drive 180 System

Mirage Drive 180 With Glide Technology

The Hobie kayaks are famous for their Mirage Drive pedal system. This system consists of a pair of pedals that drive two rubber fins side to side to propel the kayak forward. The all-new Mirage Drive 180 now also allows you to pedal backwards at the pull of a toggle! The ARC pedal cranks adjust with the push of a button to accommodate users from child size to tall adults.


The drive system features 'Glide Technology' with roller bearings found on the major pivoting components of the drive, for a smoother and easier pedalling experience. The Mirage System is silent while pedalling and creates no splash, it also allows you to effortlessly pedal the kayak with your feet while keeping your hands free, perfect for fishing and photography.

We offer a delivery service for the Hobie Kayaks i12s 2019 throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.


Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.


Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales


The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
