Hobie Mirage Revolution 13

The Hobie Revolution is one of the most popular in the Hobie range. The Revolution cuts through the water with speed and allows you to get to the best spots first. The hobie revolution is as stable as the Outback but still has the manoeuvrability of the Sport. The Revolution is fully loaded with accessories and performs superbly whether you are pedalling, sailing or kayaking. The Revolution is also one of the easiest to load on and off your car roof.

The Revolution 13 as with all the Hobie Kayaks range now comes with the Mirage 180 Drive system as standard along with ST Turbo fins and standard. The Turbo Fins allow the best drive of any of the fins hobie have made (meaning you no longer need to upgrade the fins) and the Mirage 180 Drive System allows both foward and reverse drive quickly at the pull of a toggle. This means no more having to get the paddle out to go backwards and no more faffing when landing your prize catch. To see a video of how the Mirage Drive 180 work, as well as seeing it in action on the water take a look at our videos tab.

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 Seating - New state-of-the-art design, with 4-way adjustability for more comfort in the cockpit or on the beach, Enjoy breathability, infinite flexibility and better visibility.

Sail Mount - 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.

Twist & seal hatch - Twist and seal hatches are simple to use and are hinged so you will never have to worry about losing the cover. The hatches allow you to store equipment below deck.
