Hobie’s Outback has long been considered one of the best fishing platforms in the world of kayaks, and the latest model adds more stability, utility, rear load carrying capacity and now comes with the new ‘kick-up’ version of the 180 Miragedrive Turbo for maximum performance and capability
Kayak fishing is the forte of the Outback, due largely to it’s beamy form factor affording ample stability, load carrying capacity, roomy deck space and mounting utility. With the first major redesign of Hobie’s Outback in over a decade, Hobie have further advanced the sport of kayak fishing with the latest Outback. The extra-wide standing deck offers an improved casting platform and convenient vantage point for sight fishing, allowing for superior vision from above. The revolutionary new retractable Guardian Transducer Shield provides multidimensional vision below and is perfect for side-scan fish finder units.
Four molded-in rod holders, multiple deluxe H-Track mounts, and numerous high-capacity storage compartments ensure that all of your gear is neatly and securely organized and conveniently at the ready. Ride in comfort and style with the Vantage CT seat, which keeps you high and dry, providing extra width for unmatched room and comfort.
Powered by the MirageDrive 180 with ARC Cranks and new Kick-Up Turbo Fins this fine-tuned angling vessel is highly versatile, fast, quiet and highly resilient to collisions with rocks and stumps (see the video at the bottom of page for more info).
Fitted with Hobie’s Kick-Up Rudder system with dual steering capabilities, combating drift and navigating tight water will be easier than ever. Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new fishing kayak.
