Does the Hobie Outback come with a paddle?
The kayak comes equipped with dual rudder control, which allows you to steer from either side quickly. Although fitted with a two-piece paddle that is stored on the hull, the kayak is powered by the MirageDrive 180, a pedal kayak drive that allows you to add speed with little effort.
Why are Hobie kayaks so good?
Hobie incorporate the latest technology into their kayak designs to make them some of the best small boats in the world. Their pedal technology, known as MirageDrive, allows for hands-free control of their kayaks and they also offer additional sail power kits that turn their kayaks into small sailing boats.
Can you go backwards in a pedal kayak?
Since the mirage fins are a form of hydrofoils it would be impossible to pedal backwards without reversing the drive in the slot. However since the boat has 3 mirage slots there is no reason you couldn’t place a third mirage drive into the third slot specifically for reverse.
How much do Hobie kayaks cost?
