Back friendly; you shouldn’t break a sweat getting to or from the water. Focus on fun; the durable polyethylene is carefree and tough. The Sport has a big heart that equally loves pleasure cruising and kayak fishing.

Powered by MirageDrive 180
The ungainly paddle is replaced by the sheer efficiency of the MirageDrive 180, the original pedal kayak drive. With the largest human muscle group now in play, kayaking becomes easier and more efficient than ever.
Adjustability begets comfort
The Vantage seating system provides the comfort needed for long stretches out on the water. The seat-back, bottom, height, and lumbar-support are all easily adjustable.
Twist and Stow Rudder
Hobie’s Twist and Stow Rudder is there when you need it, gone when you don’t. A standard accessory on most*Mirage models, the retractable-rudder system is engaged and disengaged with a pull of the T-shaped control handles.
Stability and Performance
The Sport’s tri-hull design improves stability by increasing floatation at the edges of the beam. Structural ribs run the length of the boat, stiffening the hull, while the hull’s rounded profile reduces resistance for a quieter, faster ride.
Front Hatch Storage
The Mirage Sport’s large covered bow hatch enables easy access to the bow’s stowage compartment.
Lowrance® Ready System
The Hobie Mirage Sport comes standard with a built-in transducer mount and pre-installed through-hull cable plugs.
