Hobie Compass new to 2018

Hobie Compass



So they took some things from there other kayaks including the popular outback and tossed it into this yak.
I think over all gonna be a great boat for the price $2000 for a peddle drive kayak... Hard to beat that and one with stability and still speed. The reviews from guys that have been in them a little faster then the Outback and more stable.

Missing a front hatch which really for me is not a must. This does except the 8inch hatch if you wanted the access.

They took some weight off with this new boat as well. Might even give this thing a try...


Specs
Length: 12
Width: 34
Capacity: 400 lbs
Fitted Hull Weight: 68 lbs
Fully Rigged Weight: 87 lbs
Hull Construction: Rotomolded Polyethylene
