2023 Hobie Mirage Outback Kayak

Hobie Mirage Outback Fishing Kayak has had a redesign.  This is the first redesign in over a decade.  This fully-loaded fishing machine is built for every conceivable fishing expedition.  If you are prowling the ocean for monster gamefish or stalking bass in your favorite freshwater fishing hole, the Outback is built for you.

One of the new features is the extra-wide standing deck which offers an improved casting platform.  In addition, you also get a convenient vantage point for sight fishing which allows for superior vision from above.  And the revolutionary Guardian Transducer Shield gives you a multidimensional vision below.

The new Vantage CTW seat provides extra width for unmatched room and comfort. It comes with four molded-in rod holders, multiple deluxe H-Track mounts, and numerous high-capacity storage compartments.  This ensures that all of your gear is at your fingertips.

The Hobie Mirage Outback is powered by the MirageDrive 180 with ARC Cranks + Turbo Fins, which makes the kayak highly highly versatile, fast, quiet, and exceedingly nimble.

New on the 2023 Mirage Outback is the Kick-Up Rudder system with dual steering capabilities, combating drift, which means that navigating tight water has never been easier.

While the classic Outback was a legend, the all-new Outback is truly legendary.

The Vantage seating system provides the comfort needed for long stretches out on the water because the seat-back, bottom, height, and lumbar-support are all easily adjustable.

Kick-Up Rudder

The Kick-Up Rudder locks in to place when you need it and retracts on impact. Transporting the kayak is a breeze because it has a large carrying handle. In addition, the handle provides a perfect mount for your GoPro. The stern is also Power-Pole ready with pre-drilled inserts.
