Add sail power to Hobie Mirage Kayaks with the Hobie kayak Sail Kit! Fits all current models of Hobie Mirage Kayaks.
The Hobie MirageDrive pedal system allows you to pedal while sailing which helps you to maintain forward motion through turns and obtain higher speeds. Sail with ease maintaining excellent speed with or without pedaling while sailing. Easily pedal out to sail or pedal home when the wind is too light. Add a SideKick ama kit for additional stability if desired.
Paddle kayaks do not have the necessary lateral resistance needed nor do they typically have a rudder for steering. Paddle kayaks require hands-on paddling which prohibits use of rudder and sail controls for sailing. The MirageDrive pedal system allows you to pedal out onto the water to sail and pedal back if needed. You can also pedal the boat through a tack (turn). The MirageDrive pedal system’s fins act as a keel or centerboard when in the down position offering the lateral resistance needed for upwind sailing. Hobie Mirage kayaks are equipped with a hand-controlled rudder. The MirageDrive allows hands to be free for sail and rudder controls. Two piece mast, sail, hardware, lines and durable storage bag included.
*Please note - due to their size (length) sail kits are too long for Australia Post to handle and therefore we can only offer to send them via courier (Courier's Please). Because of this we have to add a surcharge to the product price for shipping, which is $20.00. If you visit our showroom to pick it up we can sell it to you for $529.00
