Hobie Sport Kayak is the smallest in the range. The sport is stable and manoeuvrable and comes with all the kit you need to get you moving on the water. The mirage pedal system works by stepping alternately left and right to drive two underwater flippers. They work much like a penguin's fins to propel the Hobie Mirage forward. The Hobie sport is suited to people under 6ft for the most comfortable seating positions.
Mirage Drive 180
The Hobie kayaks are famous for their Mirage Drive pedal system. This system consists of a pair of pedals that drive two rubber fins side to side to propel the kayak forward.
The Mirage System is silent while pedalling and creates no splash, it also allows you to effortlessly pedal the kayak with your feet while keeping your hands free. For 2017 Hobie have introdcued a simple 'pull' to reverse the drive and allow backwards drives as well as forwards drive. Brilliant!!!
Fully Adjustable, thick padded self inflation lumbar support for added comfort. Easy to fit and remove for transport.
All the kayaks in the Hobie range can take a sail to power your kayak. The optional Mirage Sail Kit attaches to the sail mount on the kayak. The sail maintains speed with or without peddling

We offer a delivery service for the Hobie Sport throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.
Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.
Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales.
The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
