The Sport is sized just right for quick escapes, nine easy feet of kick-back kayak with Hobie MirageDrive motivation.
Hop on and go. Stay awhile; the cushy Vantage CT will float away your cares. The Sport is compact, but doesn’t skimp on comfort or storage. 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 teasing bass in the sticks.
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.
Vantage CT Seating System
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.
Stability and Performance
The Sport's tri-hull design improves stability by increasing flotation 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.
Twist and Stow Rudder
Hobie’s Twist and Stow Rudder is there when you need it, gone when you don’t. The retractable-rudder system is engaged and disengaged with a pull of the T-shaped control handles.
Front Hatch Storage
The Mirage Sport’s large covered bow hatch enables easy access to the bow’s stowage compartment.
Rear Cargo Area
Big adventures demand plenty of gear. These molded areas and Bungee® tie-downs ensure that it's still there when you get to camp.
The optional Mirage Sail Kit's mast securely steps onto a deck-mounted fitting. Enjoy added power without complication; Mirage Sail Kits make sailing fun and easy.
Lowrance® Ready System
The Hobie Mirage Sport comes standard with a built-in transducer mount and pre-installed through-hull cable plugs.
Negotiate surf-strewn beaches and rocky inlets with additional confidence, or go old school and paddle for an upper body workout. Conveniently clips onto the hull when not needed.
8" Twist and Seal Hatch
An efficient corkscrew mechanism ratchets down this hatch, keeping stowed items secure irrespective of the sea state. The lid is permanently attached to its base via a hinge, so you don't have to worry about leaving it at last night's campground.
Mid-Boat Carrying Handle
These ergonomic handles are bolted onto either side of the kayak's cockpit, making it easier to negotiate launching ramps or transport.
Molded Carrying Handle
Ergonomic handles fitted to stainless padeyes make portaging easier and more comfortable.
2 - Rod Holders
These molded-in holsters securely tote your rods, are perfectly angled for trolling and can accommodate a gaff, nets and other gear.
Cold, hot or somewhere in between--we've got a convenient spot for your favorite beverage.
