Custom Kayak Propulsion Systems
Designed and assembled in Austin, Texas
Introducing a new patent pending propulsion system specifically for Hobie Outback and Pro Angler Kayaks
Texas Power Paddle is the industry’s first patent pending fully retractable, custom electric propulsion system designed exclusively for the top end Hobie enthusiasts. The retractable hinged system allows the unit to disappear into the hull cavity when being transported and automatically deployed when activated.
We love the Hobie Kayaks and their MirageDrive system but wanted a little boost when fishing on the Texas Coast and inland lakes. Using other systems we had to compromise between removing the Hobie MirageDrive and inserting a Torqeedo, Bixpy, or another electric drive unit. Both of these units are nice but don’t let us get into the shallow water and don’t let us use the Hobie Mirage pedal drives at the same time. So we invented the Texas Power Paddle © which is a fully retractable, custom electric propulsion system designed just for the top end Hobie kayaks and enthusiasts.
