Hobie Mirage Outback Walkthrough | Worlds Best Selling Fishing Kayak

October 19th, 2021 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “Hobie Mirage Outback Walkthrough | Worlds Best Selling Fishing Kayak”


Our best of all worlds kayak hull that is designed and and proven in all conditions all around the world! The Outback has a long and proud history but has been reimagined and redesigned many times to keep it’s edge as the leader.
Follow along as Morgan Promnitz covers all the amazing features, explains some of the history and compares the outback to some of its competition.
Each year Hobie has always looked to pack the Outback with all the best features while keeping the hull weight and size manageable. Powered by the award winning MirageDrive 180 with Kick-up Turbo length fins. Equally as powerful forward and in reverse! The Kick-Up fins work just like before while under power but in the event you hit an obstacle underwater the fins fold back and out of the way, once you pedal they drive back forward and into position again. The Turbo length fins are our longest and largest fins and power the Outback along with incredible efficiency. While you pedal you’re supported by the Vantage CTW seatback, this is an amazing seat loaded with adjustments and features but the “W” stands for the extra width that is unique to the Outback and offers a bit wider seat bottom for maximizing comfort and fitting all users. The entire height of the seatback is adjustable on both the front edge and back edge with a number of variation so anyone can find the best angle and posture while enjoying the water. We included a lumbar adjustment the utilizes a BOA ratchet. The seating surfaces are built using a 3D mesh that is very supportive but also breathable to keep you cool and dry. Gear storage is maximized in the Outback with large hatches, gear cutouts on the sides of the cockpit and also the sides of the cargo area. Complete with H-Rail mounting surfaces, Gear tracks, Gear pockets, cutout of tools, numerous attachment points and bungees galore to handle all sorts of rigging configurations. The rudder that steers the hull is tucked under the back for safety, can be controlled from either of the dual steering handles so no matter what arm you prefer to use to cast you’ll have the other to control direction. Hobie Guardian is the name for our Retractable Transducer mounting area on the bottom side of the hull. Guardian was designed to be the most ideal way to mount a side imaging sonar or fish finder, from a control in the cockpit you can retract the transducer up safety into the hull while beaching but then drop it back below the hull so it can scan to the sides. The rudder kicks up and folds back down into place automatically. Multiple moulded in rod holders, tackle storage, grab handles, cup holders and multiple through-hull scuppers as drain points that double as mounts for our plug-in beach carts. The Outback also comes with a loading device that clips onto the rear loading handle and makes solo loading of the hull onto your car top so much easier!
