Whether you’re augmenting your MirageDrive or using the
Hobie eVolve as your primary power source, this quiet and efficient
electric motor will dramatically expand your horizons. Maybe there’s a
ripping tidal current or a series of fast-flowing eddies that you must
negotiate before reaching that pristine shoreline. Maybe it’s a bay
that’s always been a little too far explore. Or maybe it’s just been a
long day and your tired muscles could use a break. Either way, the
clean, quiet, eVolve system is there for you.
This tidy German-engineered electric motor kit fits any MirageDrive kayak and it comes with two mounting options—one midship, the other stern hung. With the Hobie eVolve, you can either maintain steady cruising speeds of two knots (motor only) for hours, or you can open the throttle for short sprints. Best yet, depending on your set-up, you can use the eVolve to augment your boat speed while also using your MirageDrive. And thanks to its cockpit-mounted Remote Throttle, you always know how much juice you have left in the system’s 230wh Lithium-Manganese battery. If you thought the MirageDrive made kayaking sweeter, wait until you try the eVolve system. Life only improves with power.
