The compact i9S offers on-the-water performance that rivals rigid boats, and its rugged, PVC-vinyl construction and reinforced underside eliminate fears of rocky beaches. Powered by the MirageDrive 180 + Kick-Up Fins and equipped with an ultra-comfortable, Vantage CT seat, you don't have to sacrifice power and comfort when you're tight on storage.
New for 2020 - Kick-up fin technology: New Patented Kick-Up Fins provide the power to charge through the water as never before. Logs, kelp, shallows, rocks, no problem
MirageDrive 180 with fin: Revolutionary hands-free propulsion system. When pedaled, the flexible fins assume the shape of a propeller blade, providing forward motion with each pedal stroke.
Drop Stitch: "Drop Stitch" refers to a method of construction that allows for much higher inflation pressures. Thousands of tiny threads connect the top and bottom layers of the floor, counterbalancing air pressure when it is inflated. This allows for remarkable structural rigidity (and increased performance) without sacrificing portability.
Storage Bag: The Hobie i-Series is the perfect choice for the kayaker who is short on space or storage. When portability is paramount, Hobie inflatables easily fold up and pack nicely within the included rolling travel bag.
Vantage CTI Seat: State-of-the-art Vantage Seating offers multiple points of adjustment and the comfort of breathable mesh. Even can be used as a beach chair.
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.
Rudder Control: Soft handle makes fingertip steering easy.
Mid Boat Carrying handles: These ergonomic handles are bolted onto either side of the kayak's cockpit, making it easier to negotiate launching ramps or transport.
