Hobie Mirage kayaks are propelled through the water using the incredibly efficient Mirage Drive pedal system. You pedal by stepping alternately left and right, not unlike an exercise stepper, to drive two rubber fins beneath the hull. They work much like a penguin's fins to propel the Hobie Kayak forwards with surprising speed and ease. All of which lets you go into kayaking feet first, with your hands free for fishing, photography and more!
The Mirage Drive has been continually developed over the years with the latest Mirage Drive 180 allowing you to reverse at the simple pull of a toggle on the drive and the 360 drive allowing for peddaling in any direction on the water!
