Based on the huge success of the Compass model that was introduced in 2018, Hobie have followed up with the inevitable tandem model, the Duo. The Hobie Compass Duo replaces the Outfitter model and offers more speed, stability, carrying capacity, better performance in choppy water and is a better kayak in every way.
The Hobie Compass Duo instantly became our best selling tandem pedal kayak, offering the sweetest spot in terms of price, weight, features and performance. With better all-round stability and carrying capacity than the Outfitter (which the Duo replaces) it’s hydrodynamic shape affords more efficiency that puts it on par with the Oasis, making it a perfect fit for our local Port Phillip and Western Port bays.
With a simpler and roomier deck layout, the Compass Duo inspires confidence for kayak anglers, which is one of the main reasons it is so popular. Raised deluxe seats offer all-day comfort and the gear tracks provide handy mounting utility for rod holders, fish finders and more. With a generous rear storage well and copious carrying capacity at the rear you can load up the Compass Duo with confidence. Hobie’s inverted kick-up rudder system (also featured on Pro Anglers and Outbacks) is simple to use, robust and reliable and highly responsive.
