Time-tested hull that’s an ideal blend of confident stability and smooth maneuverability. Yet more nimble than ever, thanks to the efficient reversing MirageDrive 180. The deck is designed around the marvelous Vantage CT seat to maximize stand-up space and storage. Cruise, camp, or catch. The Outback is packed full of fishing features, including the Lowrance Ready System that makes sonar installation a cinch.
Powered by MirageDrive 180
The ungainly paddle is replaced by the sheer efficiency of the MirageDrive 180, the original pedal kayak drive. With the largest human muscle group now in play, kayaking becomes easier and more efficient than ever.
Vantage CT Seating System
The Vantage seating system provides the comfort needed for long stretches out on the water. The seat-back, bottom, height, and lumbar-support are all easily adjustable.
Stability and Performance
The Outback's tri-hull design improves stability by increasing floatation at the edges of the beam. Structural ribs run the length of the boat, stiffening the hull, while the hull's rounded profile reduces resistance for a quieter, faster ride.
Twist and Stow Rudder
Hobie’s Twist and Stow Rudder is there when you need it, gone when you don’t. The retractable-rudder system is engaged and disengaged with a pull of the T-shaped control handles.
Large Bow Hatch
Enables easy access to the bow's stowage compartment. A security strap with a detachable clip tethers the hatch; abovedeck, Bungee® cords secure extra gear.
Rear Cargo Area
Big adventures demand plenty of gear. These molded areas and Bungee® tie-downs ensure that it's still there when you get to camp.
The optional Mirage Sail Kit's mast securely steps onto a deck-mounted fitting. Enjoy added power without complication; Mirage Sail Kits make sailing fun and easy.
Lowrance® Ready System
The Hobie Mirage Sport comes standard with a built-in transducer mount and pre-installed through-hull cable plugs.
Negotiate surf-strewn beaches and rocky inlets with additional confidence or go old school and paddle for an upper body workout. Conveniently clips onto the hull when not needed.
2 - 8" Twist and Seal Hatch
An efficient corkscrew mechanism ratchets down this hatch, keeping stowed items secure irrespective of the sea state. The lid is permanently attached to its base via a hinge, so you don't have to worry about leaving it at last night's campground.
Mid-Boat Carrying Handle
These ergonomic handles are bolted onto either side of the kayak's cockpit, making it easier to negotiate launching ramps or transport.
Molded Carrying Handle
Ergonomic handles fitted to stainless padeyes make portaging easier and more comfortable.
4 - Rod Holders
These molded-in holsters securely tote your rods, are perfectly angled for trolling and can accommodate a gaff, nets and other gear.
