Hobie Sport 2020
Hobie's smallest kayak in the Mirage series, the Sport was designed for children, teenagers and smaller adults or for somebody who is looking for an extremely light-weight pedaling kayak.
Pedal it, paddle it or sail it. It's the mini-SUV of the Hobie kayak family! The Sport is a lightweight kayak with all the capability and features of the other kayaks in the Mirage range. The Sport is propelled through the water using the all-new revolutionary Mirage Drive 180 system - full power pedal drive in forwards... and reverse! Switching between forwards and reverse is as simple and easy as pulling a toggle on the drive system. 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 Drive 180 comes equipped with the new Kick Up Fins. Kick Up fins offer worry-free pedalling - should you strike an object with the fins they simply kick up out of harms way to help reduce the risk of damage.
At 9ft in length, the Sport is nimble and will turn easily, allowing you to negotiate tight waterways with ease. Comfortable seating is ensured with the fully adjustable Vantage CT seat with Boa® System Lumbar Support. The fingertip steering of the twist-n-stow rudder system offers the user hands free travelling, ideal for fishing, photography or bird watching.
As with the rest of the Mirage Drive range, the Sport is equipped for fishing, including features such as flush mount rod holders and 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. Whilst being small, there is plenty enough storage space to laod up for a day on the water, or a weekend camping trip. In-hull storage can be accessed through the small bow hatch and the 8-inch twist lock hatch in the cockpit. Additional gear can be stored in the rear tankwell.
If you are looking for a lightweight and compact pedal kayak then the Sport may well be the kayak for you.
