2019 Hobie Cat Mirage i11S


Hobie Cat
Mirage i11S



Elegant simplicity: This low-profile performer with a rigid inflatable drop stitch hull is the lightest weight hands-free inflatable kayak in the Hobie fleet.

Ideal for quick trips after work, or jetting to another continent (while escaping most airline oversize baggage fees). Throw a optional H-Crate in the back, grab a fishing rod and enjoy kayak fishing. It packs plenty of stability into its low profile design. Plus a fin is provided, to assist when tracking is needed.

Yet fully featured, with Hobie's supremely adjustable Vantage CTi Seating System and the fingertip control of the Twist and Stow Rudder.

  • MirageDrive 180 with ST Fins: Revolutionary hands-free propulsion system. When pedaled, the flexible fins assume the shape of a propeller blade, providing forward motion with each pedal stroke.
  • Vantage CTi Seating: State-of-the-art Vantage Seating offers multiple points of adjustment and the comfort of breathable mesh. Even can be used as a beach chair.
  • Rudder Control: Soft handle makes fingertip steering easy.
  • 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.
  • Locking Valves: Covers keep valve stems secure. Valve pins lock into pump for easier inflation. Lock into open position for quick deflation.
  • 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.
  • Twist and Stow Rudder: Hobie's Twist and Stow Rudder is there when you need it, gone when you don't. Simply pull one of the T-shaped control handles to engage or disengage the retractable-rudder system. Fingertip-operated steering makes driving a snap.
  • Drop Stitch Floor: ‚ÄúDrop Stitch" refers to a method of construction that allows for much higher inflation pressures. Thousands of tiny threads connect the top and bottom layers of the floor, counterbalancing air pressure when it is inflated. This allows for remarkable structural rigidity (and increased performance) without sacrificing portability.
  • Rolling Storage Bag: The Hobie i-Series is the perfect choice for the kayaker who is short on space or storage. When portability is paramount, Hobie inflatables easily fold up and pack nicely within the included rolling travel bag.
