Hobie Mirage Drive Kayaks
The MirageDrive kayak was created because of a simple concept. It isn’t as hard to push an item with the big muscles in your leg as it is to pull it with the smaller muscles in your upper body. With this particular kayak, you can choose whether or not you want the regular paddles or not. As an alternative, the kayak has 2 pedals that are attached to the level above the seat. They are also connected to forceful underwater fins by the Hobie MarageDrive kayak’s smooth gear machinery.
When you pedal, these fins will transform into a propeller blade and move you ahead each time that the pedal is pushed. As a result of the flexible fin changing its shape with each back stroke, every pedal balances out the power. Thus, this pushes you through the water very fast, but it keeps the boat even. In addition, the strong fins wade through the water when they are not utilized, which reduces the drag. Also, they stay by the hull so that you can slowly explore the area for places to stop or dip on the beach. Just lock the MirageDrive with its easy to use Click and Go platform and you can secure the boat and enjoy more fun in the sun.
The reason that the Hobie MirageDrive has great double scissor performance is because the originator watched the swimming movements of graceful penguins. The engineers at Hobie came to the conclusion that this beautiful penguin movement would be perfect to duplicate for this particular kayak. They spent a lot of time pedalling on the water and doing research. They came up with a design that connects two pedals to two forceful fins that are plastic and underneath the water.
With this new design, the MirageDrive took kayaking to a totally new level making it possible to kayak for a long period of time. The Hobie MirageDrive is an extraordinary performer. It does not matter if you want to punch over open water, explore new territory or nose thru a mangrove forest when the sun is going down. This kayak is fast and powerful enough to go all through the day. However, this is not the only thing that makes the Hobie name stand out.
