Hobie Adventure Island
Is it a kayak, is it a pedal yak, is it a sailing boat? The answer is YES. The Hobie adventure Island can do it all, this totally unique craft can be quickly and easily made in to any of these. It has been designed so it can be easily broken down for transportation but also to suit the weather conditions you want to go out in. The hull of this craft is the Hobie Adventure which is the fastest solo hobie and includes everything you need to get on the water.
Mirage Drive 180
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 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. For 2017 Hobie have introdcued a simple 'pull' to reverse the drive and allow backwards drives as well as forwards drive. Brilliant!!!
Fully Adjustable, thick padded self inflation lumbar support for added comfort. Easy to fit and remove for transport.
All the kayaks in the Hobie range can take a sail to power your kayak. The optional Mirage Sail Kit attaches to the sail mount on the kayak. The sail maintains speed with or without peddling
Retractable Rudder System
Hobie's come with a Rudder that is easily controllable with a lever to steer as well as two pull handles on either side of the kayak: a "Down" handle to deploy the rudder and an "Up" handle to lift the rudder out of the water when in shallow water and for landing.
