Hobie Mirage Eclipse

 

Hobie has just launched an entirely new category in the stand up water sports field.  The Hobie Mirage Eclipse is a stand on pedal (yes pedal not paddle) board using a redesigned version of the patented MirageDrive.  With a step machine like motion you can now propel yourself across the water. It is extremely easy and the board is very stable affording everybody the chance to do it.  The handle bars add to the stability and allow you steer the board without needing to lean like regular stand up and surf boards.  This is the board for anyone who wants to paddleboard but was concerned about standing up on one.  If you still want to paddle, you can quickly remove the handlebars, lock the rudder in place (now it works like a skeg), grab a paddle and off you go.  You can get to boards in one.

 

The Mirage Eclipse comes in two sizes, a 10.5' and 12' version.  These sizes will handle riders up to 275 pounds.  The shorter 10.5 handles like a sports car.  It is quick, responsive and great for smaller people and those who want a lighter board.  The 12.0 is the sports sedan.  It cruises and is more stable than the 10.5 and is great for those looking for more stability.
