Mirage Drive GTT - Turbo Bluefins

At Hobie, helping people have unforgettable on-the-water experiences, ranks supreme!

We believe that kayaking and fishing should be accessible, rewarding and—above
all else—fun. This starts with locomotion. For many kayakers, long hours of paddling
can dampen their fun factor, and paddle splashes can startle fish and wildlife. So
we asked a hard question: why labor to pull with your arms when it’s infinitely more
efficient to push with your legs?

The genius behind the Hobie MirageDrive’s double-scissor action was developed by
carefully studying how penguins swim. Our engineers realized that these amazing
birds’ efficient fin stroke was a perfect solution to powering your kayak or boat.
After countless hours of R&D and miles of on-the-water pedaling, our breakthrough
design linked a pair of cockpit-mounted pedals to a set of powerful underwater fins
that are constructed out of a flexible, durable plastic. When pedaled, the fins flex to
assume the shape of a propeller blade, scissoring back and forth on both the front
stroke and the back stroke, yielding a smooth, efficient ride.

Hobie’s new innovative MirageDrive with Glide Technology propels kayaking and
fishing into a brave new era by combining the ease and go-all-day endurance of
flatland cycling with the joys of kayaking. Whether it’s punching across an exposed
patch of water, exploring new casting grounds, or nosing through a mangrove forest
at sunset, Hobie’s MirageDrive delivers snappy, reliable performance, confidenceinspiring
power and all-day efficiency. But this is only one element of what makes
kayaking and fishing, Hobie-style, so sweet.
