Hobie Mirage Compass Fishing Kayak
The Hobie Mirage Compass is a tried-and-true design and one of the most popular kayaks in the Hobie lineup. The narrow, sleek hull design allows this kayak to slice through the water quickly and quietly. Coupled with the MirageDrive 180 that comes standard on this kayak, you’ll have power and precision on any body of water. This kayak is designed to maximize buoyancy and stability with its wide hull. This will allow it to handle all your activities without sacrificing its easy-to-paddle ability. The Compass is a great kayak that slots between the Hobie Passport and the Hobie Outback kayaks based on its features and construction.
Whether you’re spending the day on the water fishing or out enjoying the beautiful weather, the Compass offers a variety of features for everyone. With plenty of room to spare from the cockpit to the cargo area, it’s up to you to find the best fit for you. The covered bow storage area leaves plenty of room and concealment to keep things out of the way. While the rear cargo features an open plan with criss-cross bungees that hold your fishing crate or cooler. You’ll also find plenty of space under your chair, allowing for more storage for tackle boxes and other amenities. Along the side of the kayak, you’ll find a bungee attachment to hold the included two-piece fiberglass paddle. Storing it out of the way but ready for use.
Enjoy the revolutionary MirageDrive 180 while you sit comfortably in the breathable optimal seating design chair. The ripstop fabric constructed chair is adjustable and removable, allowing you to use it for more than just on the kayak but also on the beach or around the campfire after a day on the water. At your feet is the 8” twist and seal hatch that allows you to access the hull. Fully adjustable MirageDrive pedals will enable you to find the optimal comfort level so you can pedal all day long. The Hobie H-Track accessory mounts on each side of the kayak allow you to add your favorite accessories without drilling or additional hardware. Easy fish finder installation with the single scupper allows your wires and transducer to be mounted efficiently.
Important with any kayak is its accessibility when transported to and from the water. Under the seat, you’ll find two handles to help assist when moving your kayak on top of your vehicle or when you need to carry from the side. Overall, the Hobie Compass is the ideal kayak for any recreational kayaker and fisherman because the open floor plan design allows you to customize your experience. Whether adding a Power Pole Micro Anchor on the rear or adding one of Hobie’s accessories such as the sail kit or bimini. There is a variety to choose from to help meet your needs for this kayak.

The Hobie MirageDrive 180 is an efficient, durable drive that features forward and reverse. Designed with high-end components to withstand fresh and saltwater and the obstacles you will face in both scenarios. The glide technology reduces friction in the drive providing a smooth and powerful peddling experience. One of the ultimate tools of the MirageDrive 180 is the Kick-Up Fin technology. This revolutionary design allows you to come fin to fin with obstacles in the water without slowing you down. When you come into contact with the bottom, rocks, and stumps, the fins will easily kick up and lock back in place so you can continue peddling. These durable square tip fins slice through the water swiftly and effectively, getting you where you need to go. Operating and adjusting the 180 Drive is simple. To adjust your peddles, press the buttons at the top of the cranks and slide forwards or backward for the most comfortable fit. To engage forward or reverse is as easy as pulling the red reverse shifter or the green forward shifter, as easy as that. Installing your 180 Drive is as easy as dropping and locking it into place. There is no need for extra work and hassle with hardware or other tools. With the right technology, Hobie has created a kayak all anglers will love. Simple to maneuver and navigate, experience the Mirage Drive 180 for yourself in one of the finest kayaks on the market.
