Hobie Mirage Sport Features

Our favorite feature of the Hobie Mirage Sport has to be the MirageDrive. This ability to move through the water using your feet makes the already nimble and fast craft even more versatile. It glides through the water with a stability that is unmatched in the ranks of sit-on-top kayaks. This is important as smaller adults and kids appreciate a little more balance on the water giving them more time to truly appreciate the experience that is kayaking.  The durable polyethylene acts to lighten the load even more with the entirety of the kayak coming in at 61 pounds!
