Hobie 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 180 Drive Allowing Forwards and Backwards Gears

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!!!

We offer a delivery service for the Hobie Revolution 13 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.
