In 1997, the Hobie® MirageDrive® revolutionized kayaking. With no paddle to swing, the genius pedal drive flattened the learning curve and freed the user’s hands for other things – to wave at friends, point a camera, or cast a fishing rod.
MirageDrive kayaks are efficient too, leveraging the power of the largest muscle group in the human body – the legs. Traveling upwind or up current is easy.
In spring 2016, Hobie is revolutionizing stand up paddling. Introducing the Mirage® Eclipse, the world’s first leg-powered stand up board. Hobie calls the new category of watercraft Mirage Standup. Riding the Eclipse is as easy as walking. Step on and go!
