Hobie Mirage Compass 2019
The Mirage Compass from Hobie brings a new hull design combining the bow from a Revolution and the under-hull and back end of a Pro Angler! This has created an excellent kayak for fishing and all-round touring. The 12ft hull is nimble through the water with great forwards speed along with excellent stability and maneoverability makes the Compass ideal for both inland waters and coastal waters.
Powered by the efficient Mirage Drive with Glide Technology for a smooth pedalling experience. Fingertip steering using a control handle beside the seat operates the rudder beneath the stern for excellent maneoverability. Fish whilst on the move, take photos or film whilst on the move and much more with the Mirage Compass. The seat features quick-drying mesh and is adjustable allowing for a comfortable pedalling position to be achieved. The seat is optimally positioned in height for fishing whilst allowing for space beneath the seat for tackle storage.
The Mirage Compass is great for kayak fishing and comes complete with 2 moulded-in fishing rod holders. H-Track sections can be found either side of the foot well allowing for easy accessory mounting without the need to drill the kayak. The H-Track is compatible with all popular track mounts from Railblaza, Ram Mounts, Yak Attack and Scotty, allowing you to easily fit your fish finder, rod holders, camera mounts and more. The large rear tank well will easily house a storage crate such as the H-Crate for storage of your fishing gear, or even the Hobie Livewell, and comes with bungee tie-downs. Further gear can be stored beneath the mesh cover on the bow of the Compass. An 8 inch Twist and Stow hatch is fitted in front of the seat so that you can keep fishing tackle or bait within easy reach. A flat deck in front of the seat allows for standing in flat calm waters, for sight fishing and casting.
The Mirage Compass also comes fitted with the Lowrance-Ready system. The Lowrance-Ready system makes fish finder installation easy using a large transducer scupper under the kayak and a system of deck seals for waterproof cable routing. The deck seals are supplied seperately allowing for installation where suits you best.
The Compass is one of the lightest kayaks in the Mirage Kayak range, coming in at a respectable 31kg fitted hull weight, and 39kg when loaded with the Mirage Drive, Seat and Paddle.
New for 2019, the Compass now comes with a sail mount, deeper side carry handles and moulded-in brass inserts to take optional footrests for paddling purposes. The 2019 Compass is also available in two new colours - Papaya Orange and Camo. The Camo edition Compass comes equipped with a Mirage Drive 180 with ST Turbo Fins and standard (non-ARC) pedal arms.

Mirage Drive With Glide Technology
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 drive system features 'Glide Technology' with roller bearings found on the major pivoting components of the drive, for a smoother and easier pedalling experience. 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, perfect for fishing and photography.

We offer a delivery service for the Hobie Mirage Compass 2019 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.
