A good customer of ours let me try his Hobie Mirage, in the first 30 seconds I was smitten! Whether you call this pedal driven kayak a sit on kayak or sit on top kayak ~ I call it FUN!

 

This is faster than any traditional kayak, canoe or rowboat you have seen. It's also faster than any pedal powered boat in its price range.

 

Hobie recumbent pedal kayaks are for sale at the Bicycle Man Shop in Alfred NY

Fun, fast, smooth, fun, easy to get used to, quiet, fun, you get the picture… I came back to the shop and told the rest of the guys about it and 3 out of 4 of us want one!


Your feet move through arcs, not circles. I was skeptical of this at first, having been an Alenax treadle bike dealer but pedaling the Hobie was very smooth and natural.

 

The Mirage drive is smooth, silent and efficient.

 

Fins in the drive system of the Hobie Kayaks

At the end of each pedal stroke it folds itself nearly flat against the bottom of the boat, a handy feature if you need to glide over a log or shallow or onto a beach.

It doesn’t rotate so it won’t wrap itself in weeds like a propeller would. It's like riding a recumbent bike ~ yet with no hills, potholes or traffic AND your hands are free for a camera, fishing rod, binoculars or whatever else you need them for.

There is even a Tandem Pedal Driven Recumbent Kayak

 



What others are saying about the Hobie Mirage kayaks:

Popular Science ...The Hobie Mirage received their 1998 "Best of What's New" Award. It was written up in the November (page 27) and December (page 58) issues.

 

"This kayak is quick. I'm a cyclist, and with a steady easy pace I can maintain 4 mph. It handles well and is pretty stable. Even in the water weeds the fin mechanism doesn’t tangle up much. "

"If you want a fun kayak that can go fast this one is great. The hatches mean I can carry gear for weekend camping trips when I want to. If you get tired of peddling you can always paddle or if you want a work out you can do both. Like I said this boat is loaded with fun."

"This is a great fishing boat. I can cast with a rod in one hand while I peddle no problems. "

"We bought the Hobie Mirage to get a lower body workout while kayaking. We love this kayak. Only problem, once my wife tried it I can't get it back. The paddle rest is a nice feature too."

"This is the fastest sit on top kayak I’ve seen. With a little effort peddling you can leave other kayaks in your wake. It is stable and handles well too. It is a little heavy for a single person to load onto a car-top carrier, but it can be done. "

"This kayak is very fast when pedaling and the rudder works well. The seat is very comfortable. It handles well even in windy conditions."

"I like keeping up with friends in traditional kayaks without the paddle dripping in my lap. With the pedals you move fast, paddling at the same time is pointless. The paddle is good for maneuvering in really tight spaces and to back up. "

"I bought this kayak to get non-impact exercise. The speed is remarkable with out working too hard. "
