2016 Hobie Cat Mirage Outfitter
A kayak with one of Hobie’s easy and elegant MirageDrives is quick. Adding a second really pours on the speed.
Bring along a friend, your significant other, or a child—dual helm control means either of you can steer this wide, stable hull. Or go solo. The Outfitter is the more compact of Hobie’s pair of rotomolded polyethylene tandems, a little easier to store than its larger sibling. Room for two doesn’t mean sacrificing storage: utility trays, a trio of Twist and Seal hatches, and a large rear storage area provide plenty of room.
Features may include:
- Molded Carrying Handle
Ergonomic handles fitted to stainless padeyes make portaging easier and more comfortable.
- MirageDrive 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.

- Cup Holder
Cold, hot or somewhere in between–we’ve got a convenient spot for your favorite beverage.

Soft handle makes fingertip steering easy.
- 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.
- Mesh Stowage Pocket
Easy access and safe stowage for the things you reach for most.

- 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.
- 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.
