Hobie MD180 ST 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 MD180 ST 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 ST Turbo Fin Kit is one of the most popular upgrades on a Mirage Drive kayak. This kit is for the Mirage Drive 180 system only.

We offer a delivery service for the Hobie MD180 ST Turbo Fin Kit 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
