Hobie's 'Mirage Drive' system allows you to propel the kayak with your legs leaving both hands free for fishing.
The Hobie Mirage Pro-Angler 14 replaces the awkwardness of the paddle with the extreme efficiency of the Mirage Drive pedal system so that are utilizing the body’s largest muscle group, making kayaking easier than ever. The system is easily adjusted for the rider’s height.
Hobie has been committed to excellence since the beginning of the 1960’s and although innovative every product from the Hobie fleet is meticulously tested.
The Mirage Pro Angler range (12ft, 14ft & 17ft tandem) are wide and stable allowing the angler to cast and fish standing up. There is a great amount of rod storage and the hatches are large, the main one housing a pivoting tackle management system. There is a rear cargo area with Bungee® tie downs.
The steering is present on the left and the right side of the kayak so can easily be reached with whichever is free. There is a retractable rudder system, and for longer voyages in windy conditions there is also a tracking skeg that can be added for directional stability.
The seat is possible the most comfortable kayak seat on the market. Its sturdy construction is designed for a load up to 159 kg (350 lbs) and has a built in lumbar support system. Hobie has many accessories that can be added to the rack system to carry a wide range of accessories: holder for Go-Pro cameras, electronic fish finders, tackle bins, cup holders, horizontal rod racks ….
