Hobie Cat’s thirty-plus years of experience manufacturing state-of-the-art watercraft shows . . . .
Hobie’s design team has now stretched the limits of imagination by creating the world’s finest pedaling kayak. The Hobie Mirage, a sit-on-top kayak powered by the ingenious new Hydro-Sail Drive, easily skims along at speeds equal to or better than a paddled kayak.

Leisurely cruise under pedal power alone or enjoy the benefit of a workout by pedaling hard, paddling or doing both at once; the Hobie Mirage is the only kayak that can offer a total-body workout.

Speed, stability and a highly maneuverable hull result in an efficient kayak with a solid feel. As with all Hobie kayaks, the Hobie Mirage features strategically placed scuppers and an ergonomically designed seat, which make for a dry, comfortable ride.
The Hobie Mirage reinforces Hobie’s status as the world leader in fun, affordable and innovative watersports products.

DUAL USE: The Hobie Mirage can be easily pedal driven with the Hydro-Sail or paddled like a conventional kayak, offering a total-body workout. Simple to use for everyone!
