Hobie Kick Up Turbo Fin Kit

The Turbo fins are longer and have greater surface area than standard ST Fins, which provides greater resistance through the water...result? More thrust! Users report as much as a 10% or more increase in speed through the water. Its not all about the speed increase though... you can get greater top end speed and a slower cadence for cruising (less pedals per mile). All achieved with the larger, more efficient Kick Up Turbo fins.

These longer fins can also increase lateral resistance for sailing upwind if you have equipped your kayak with a sailing kit. Advantages, advantages but are there any disadvantages? Well you will have to put a little more effort in to pedal the Turbo fins, comparable to pedalling a bike up a slight incline, but the result is more speed! Fin tension screws are included to allow the pedaller to fine tune the balance between lower end torque and top end speed. Installation is easy with step-by-step instructions.

The Turbo Fin Kit is one of the most popular upgrades on a Mirage Drive kayak.

This kit is for the MD180 or GT Kick Up system only found on select 2020 Hobie models.


  • Increase your top end speed
  • Lowers you cadence (rate of pedalling) for easier cruising
