Simplicity defined, its time-tested MirageDrive pedal system with Glide Technology and new Kick-Up Fins moves you easily through the water. Patented Kick-Up Fin Technology takes the worry out of kayaking in shallow, structure-filled waters by automatically retracting upon impact. Outfitted with a breathable mesh seat, the Compass offers maximum stability and an oversized cockpit and flat deck for standing. A sharp turning radius makes this fishing kayak nimble in tight quarters, yet able to speed over open water in stealthy fashion. Kayak fishing features include molded-in rod holders, H-Track accessory mounts and a transducer cavity ready for you to install a Lowrance® fishfinder. For a stealthy look, upgrade to the Compass Camo package that is outfitted with the reversing MirageDrive 180 with Kick-Up Fins and comes in Camo color.

THE HOBIE DIFFERENCE:
A powerful combination of performance and value. The MirageDrive GT pedal system with ST fins has dual underwater square tip fins that drive you forward with proven speed using the power of your legs. The patented square tip fin design on the ST fins has an increased surface area while maintaining a one-foot mast length for faster speeds. With a refined design and famous Hobie quality, experience endless adventure on the water.
TWIST AND SEAL HATCH:
The twist and seal is a unique mechanism that allows for one hand operation and it ensures that the hatch is sealed. The hinged lid keeps the hatch lid with the kayak at all times and the rubber gasket keeps the hatch dry. The Compass deck allows for upgrading to the rectangular hatch and provides a recessed area in the bow compartment to re-install the stock round hatch.
