NEW FOR 2022 the iTrek range of inflatable kayaks. The concept of this new range is to make inflatable kayaks so easy to transport and assemble that you can take your Hobie Mirage kayak to places the Mirage Drive has never been before. The Hobie iTrek 9 Ultralight is the smallest inflatable in the new range and weighs just under 17 kilos. The iTrek 9 Ultralight is very quick to inflate using the supplied pump, the construction is 1000 denier PVC making it strong enough to hold fishing hooks. Construction is 18 threads per square inch with some diagonal threads for added strength – the iTrek 9 can be inflated to 10 psi helping to maintain its rigidity and performance. The iTrek 9 comes complete with the smooth and durable Mirage Drive GT with kick-up fins so you don’t have to worry about contact with underwater obstacles. Thanks to the newly designed rudder and steering system, the kayak turns on a dime and the rudder can be easily lowered into the water or raised with a quick pull on the line. The new style of anodized aluminum seat is elevated with a comfortable ‘nano’ mesh backrest that is breathable and allows any splashes to pass through keeping you dry and comfortable all day. The new style of chair fastens firmly and can be installed in seconds.
The new style of chair fastens firmly and installs in seconds. There are carry handles on the front and rear of the kayak, as well as one in the center so it can be carried like a SUP board. The board also comes with a Stand-Up Paddle so you can use it as a SUP if you fancy a change.
