This quiet and efficient electric motor will dramatically expand your horizons. 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. The evolve offers increased battery capacity longer range and solar charge / run capability. Includes well mounted drive for all Mirage Kayaks and optional Twist and Stow rudder attachment for (most) non-inflatable models.
