The Hobie Mirage Eclipse 10.5 Pedal Board is a stand up paddle board that you can pedal with your feet using Hobie's revered Mirage drive system. Spend less time in the gym and more time out on the water! The board is pedaled using a stair stepper motion that paddlers of all levels can use. Steering is accomplished using two pressure handles on the stand up handlebar. Just squeeze the left or right pressure handle to steer in that direction. The kick up rudder means that grounding the board will not result in damage. The stand up handlebar can even be removed to transform the Eclipse into a standard paddle board.
Compared to the Hobie Mirage Eclipse 12, this board is a bit more responsive in terms of maneuverability but does not track as well as the 12. It also has a lower weight capacity than the 12. For paddlers over 200 lbs, we recommend the Eclipse 12.
Ordered this for my wife's birthday. She absolutely loves it. She weighs about 120 lbs and is 5'5. Delivered very quickly and with a nice bow I might add. It's very fast and super maneuverable with the easy to use steering handles. She gets an excellent workout on it. Trust me, pedaling this thing for one hour straight will toast you. Be careful letting kids use it unsupervised however. It's made out of fiberglass so you don't want them to hit any boats/hard objects with it. I highly suggest getting the rail tape for the board.
