Hobie’s bioengineered MirageDrive propulsion system for pedal kayaks was revolutionary in its inception in 1996 and has been evolving ever since. The MirageDrive 180 forward-reverse propulsion system is integrated into most MirageDrive kayaks. Weighing in at under eight pounds, the MirageDrive 180 produces full power in both directions and offers unprecedented maneuverability for your pedal kayak. The user can pull one of two shift cables to pivot the fins 180 degrees, almost instantly from forward to reverse and back again. The dual fins provide shallow water access and easy shore landings by simply pushing one pedal forward.
