The Hobie Mirage Eclipse 12 Pedal Board is a paddle board that you can pedal with your feet using Hobie's revolutionary Mirage drive system. A great watercraft for fitness paddlers who want to spend time on the water instead of the gym! The Mirage drive is pedaled via a stair stepper motion, which drives the board forward. To steer the board, simply squeeze the left or right pressure handles on the stand up handlebar. The kick up rudder means that grounding the board on accident will not damage it. The stand up handlebar can even be removed to transform the Eclipse into a standard paddle board.
Compared to the Hobie Mirage Eclipse 10.5, this board tracks better but does not turn as well as the shorter 10.5. This board has a higher weight capacity than the 10.5 as well, being longer and slightly wider.
