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—the 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 320 Wh Lithium-Manganese battery. Runtime estimated as 8 hr 20 min at 2.6 mph / 48 min full throttle. If you thought the MirageDrive made kayaking sweeter, wait until you try the evolve v2 system. The eVolve v2 offers increased battery capacity, longer range and solar charge / run capability (solar panel accessory not yet available). Life only improves with power.Ready-to-go Mirage well-mounted Hobie evolve v2.

A clever option for mounting the evolve motor package is to swap out your MirageDrive for this electric unit. Just slot the well-mounted Hobie evolve into any MirageDrive kayak and instantly enjoy powered propulsion. Ready to use fresh out of the box, the Mirage-mounted eVolve weighs a scant 6.4 pounds—that’s 0.2 pounds less than the MirageDrive—and is built to take years of exploration and adventure.
