Hobie’s i9S was specifically designed for people are limited on storage space but who dream of spending their time kayaking, fishing or sailing. It packs nicely within its own rolling travel bag, so it can fit in the boot of your car, on your boat, in your motor home — you can even take it on the plane for your next vacation.
The i9s features the super comfortable Vantage CTi seat system. The raised seating position of the Vantage seat off the deck makes for a drier, more comfortable ride.
The new Mirage Drive system will see you zipping around your favourite bay, lake or river.
The new i9s features the 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 pedaling experience.
The i9s also comes with a 4 piece paddle incase you fancy paddling.
The Hobie i9s is lightweight and accelerates fast through the water, but still maintains an impressive turning radius, allowing you to pedal into the tightest of spots. This makes the i9s great for exploring overgrown rivers and tight coastline! The fingertip steering of the twist-n-stow rudder system offers the user hands free travelling, ideal for fishing, photography or bird watching.
The i9s is at home cruising around on calm inland waters and sheltered coastal waters. It is great for a spot of fishing too!
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!!!
Vantage CTi Seating

We offer a delivery service for the Hobie I9s 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.
