Hobie Mirage Outback

The Outback has long been Hobie's best selling fishing kayak. Over the years a number of small revisions have been made but for 2019 the Outback has had a complete design overhaul and face-lift! This has answered the dreams of many Outback users and kayak anglers alike and the all-new 2019 Outback offers an unbelivable fishing kayak loaded with all the latest features.

A new hull design takes elements from the previous Outback, the Revolution and the Pro Angler series. This hull design features a wide stable platform for fishing, with a sharper bow design for efficient forwards pedalling with minimal hull slap. This makes the Outback great for inland waterways, and inshore coastal waters in calm to moderate conditions. This is a very capable kayak for the majority of UK kayak fishing!

The Outback is powered by the incredibly efficient Mirage Drive 180 pedal system, allowing full power pedalling in forwards and reverse. The drive is fitted with ST Turbo Fins as standard. This allows for hands-free kayaking, offering a number of advantages for kayak fishing, on-the-water photography and much more! You can pedal along whilst trolling a lure, drifting a bait, playing a fish, or even whilst eating your lunch! The Outback ensures excellent comfort for long days on the water with the Vantage CTw seating system, which has been increased in width from the previous Outback for a more spacious seating area.

Features are absolutely crammed onto this kayak, making this one of the best fishing kayak currently available. The main cockpit features a centre rectangiular hatch with integrated bucket, pockets and even a bottle opener. Foam EVA standing pads are fitted either side of the hatch for stand-up fishing on calm waters. Forwards of the seat the sides have built-in gear storage areas, hookless maps pockets, H-Track and H-Rail deluxe with built in track - perfect for attaching accessories too such as fish finders and rod holders.

A large bow hatch allows storage of larger items such as a fold-up trolley. The large rear cargo area will easily take your days catch, a storage crate or cool bag. Sections of H-Track can be found at the sides of this area for further gear attachment, compatible with all popular track mount accessory systems such as Ram Mounts, Railblaza and Scotty. The Outback steering is controlled with dual-sided steering handles either side of the seat and an uphaul cord in the foot well. A Kick-up rudder is situated beneath the stern for optimal action, giving a good turning circle - ideal for weaving in and out of features. 4 rod holders come moulded into the hull as standard.

The Outback comes fitted with the new retractable Guardian Transducer Sheild, which accomodates larger side scan transducers and standard size transducers. This houses the transducer on a spring-loaded platform which will move up into the kayak if the transducer hits an obstacle or the bottom. It can also be completely retracted for launching and landing. A series of Thur-Hull cable seals are also fitted to the hull to make fish finder installation simpler.

The outback also comes with a nifty load-assister, which clips onto rear handle. This allows the outback to be lifted on it's stern without scratching the hull, to make things easier when getting the kayak up onto a roof rack.

This is one of the best fishing kayaks around and comes with all the features you need to make fishing comfortable and accessorising your craft a breeze!

2020 Model Update: The 2020 Outback now comes with Kick-Up Fins on the Mirage Drive 180 - these fins will automatically kick up out of harms way if you hit an object whilst pedalling. They will automatically re-engage as you keep pedalling. This greatly reduces the chance of damaging your drive whilst on the move!
