Add sail power to Hobie Mirage i-Series Kayaks with the Hobie kayak Sail Kit!
NOTE: i-Sail kits not available for Hobie Mirage i11s Inflatable kayaks.
Hobie sail kits work so well in the Mirage series of pedal kayaks because the MirageDrive system allows you to pedal while sailing which helps you to maintain forward motion through turns and achieve higher speeds.
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. The MirageDrive pedal system allows you to pedal out onto the water to sail and pedal back if needed.
You can also pedal the boat through a tack (turn). The MirageDrive pedal system’s fins act as a keel or centreboard when in the down position offering the lateral resistance needed for upwind sailing. Hobie Mirage kayaks are equipped with a hand-controlled rudder. The MirageDrive allows hands to be free for sail and rudder controls.
- Two-piece mast

Add a Hobie Sidekick Ama Kit for additional stability if desired.
