Coming Fall 2019, the Hobie i9S is a compact kayak that performs just as well as any rigid boat. Its rigid PVC-vinyl construction and reinforced underside are durable enough to take on rocky beaches. It fits into a compact rolling bag, making it perfect for those who are short on space. This is the ideal kayak to travel with, as it inflates easily and packs away neatly.
All new for 2020 and featured on the i9S is the Kick-Up fins. These fins eliminate the possibility of damage upon impact with submerged objects. The fins automatically retract when contact is made with any sunken object! Simply begin to peddle again, and the fins pop back into place and function regularly.
