Hobie goes Inflatable! The new high-end Kayaks take the Mirage Technology and shrink it down to a packable size for transportation. Stop carry bit boats on your car rooftop and remain some space in your garage – packed into their rolling travel bag, the Inflatables are easy to move and fit into your trunk (pack size see below). A sturdy 1000D PVC fabric with Drop Stich Floor Technology produce a very solid base where you even can stand up in given situations. The reinforced bottom adds security for rocky bottoms in shallow waters.
What about a float trip on one of the big salmon / greyling rivers in Northern Scandinavia? The Hobie i12S is a fully equipped Kayak with enough capacity for a several day trip. Further, it is much more stable when driving faster than its smaller 9ft brother. It comes with the patented MirageDrive 180 Paddel System that uses your leg muscle as power unit. Shoulder and arms can relax for the next fish fight or long shifts of casting. ;-)
Steerage is performed by the Twist and Stow Rudder and controlled with a cable pull using one hand. For transportation or if you don’t use it / beach the boat, it can be quickly stowed on top with one pull.
NEW: MirageDrive 180 with Reverse Gear
The MirageDrive propulsion system itself is revolutionary and now Hobie introduced their next evolution: With only one pull you can switch from moving forward to reverse – one system, two gears! Incomparable manoeuvrability when you face tricky situations or need to place your kayak in best position for fighting a fish.
Long rides require good condition and a comfortable seat. The Vantage CTi provides adjustable seating and seat back along with lumbar support. For better spotting it can be mounted in two height positions and you can even detach it completely to use it as a camping seat on a beach or at bonfire.
Drop Stitch Floor
Every Inflatable comes with a Drop Stitch Construction that allows higher inflation pressure compared to other inflatables. Fine threads connect the top and bottom layer to keep the flat surface. By increasing the pressure you get a much stiffer platform you easily can walk without cave in (the Mirage i11S therefore can be used as a Stand-Up-Paddle Board).
