Hobie Mirage i9S 2020

An easy-to-transport ticket to fun on the water! The I9S comes in a compact travel bag but quickly assembles and inflates into a great kayak for cruising calm waters, creeks and sheltered inlets. Powered by MirageDrive™ 180 that lets kayakers pedal in forwards and reverse, leaving their hands virtually free for other activities like fishing, taking photos, bird watching, or just plain having fun. Each boat inflates and deflates quickly and comes standard with a rolling travel bag. They are designed to be transported in cars, trucks, and RV's, or on larger boats and to be stored in caravans and motorhomes or any other place where space is limited. Suitable for travelling by air, train or boat too!

The I9S can be pedaled, paddled, and/or sailed with the optional sail kit. The hull is are constructed of durable 1000-Denier PVC with a high-pressure drop stitch floor for a near rigid feel and excellent on the water performance. The I9S has three inflation chambers with one-way valves. Wear-guard material protects the bow, stern, and hull centerline. Featuring the kick-up Twist and Stow rudder that can be lifted and turned to lay flat on deck when not in use, whether in the water, on top of the car, or in the rolling travel bag.

The defining feature on the inflatables is Hobie's patented MirageDrive™ 180 with Kick Up Fins. Two pedals are connected to two underwater fins, much like penguin wings; and are locked and unlocked from the kayak with a Click and Go system built into the hull. Pedal in forwards and reverse with Kick Up fins that move up out of harms way if they strike the bottom of an underwater object, greatly reducing the chance of damage. Steering is controlled via the fingertip-controlled Twist and Stow rudder system. The rudder can be rotated out of the way in very shallow water and for transport or storage. Rudder steering lines are made from Spectra, the world's strongest fiber, up to 15 times stronger than quality steel of the same size.

A great option for those who want a small and compact craft that is efficient and nimble on the water, yet folds down to an easy to store size that is easy to transport!
