Inventing new ways to enjoy the water is a way of life at Hobie. Our latest – the Mirage Standup – is the world’s first stand up pedalboard. Rather than paddling, riders pedal using the patented MirageDrive technology used in our hands-free kayaks, to power these stand up boards.
These boards offer a great way of staying fit and exploring waterways at the same time. The movement on board is similar to that of a step machine at the gym and is a good low impact way of strengthening your core, glutes and legs. We used this board to travel nearly 20K across Poole Harbour recently and whilst we knew we had done some exercise there was no joint or muscle pain the following day. The other joy of the Mirage Eclipse is the relative ease of mastering the boards, beginners are able to travel long distances on their first session out on the water.
The Hobie Eclipse ACX is ready to go on the water in minutes and can be easily transported on top of your car. The Eclipse ACX is a lightweight and fast board – the fastest in the pedalboard range!
