Hobie Mirage Kayak Sail Kit (Aqua/Chartreuse)
Add sail power to Hobie Mirage Kayaks! This kit can be used on all current models of Hobie Mirage Kayaks. 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. Hobie Mirage kayaks are equipped with a hand-controlled rudder.
The MirageDrive allows hands to be free for sail and rudder controls.The Patented MirageDrive pedal system allows you to pedal while sailing which also 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. 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.
