Hobie Mirage Compass

The Mirage Compass has been designed to offer great performance in a simple, good value package. The clean lines and bow profile are taken from the super fast Revolution series, whilst the stern and aspects of the hull are borrowed from the ultimate fishing platform the Pro-Angler. The result is a fast and nimble, yet stable hull perfect for both inland and coastal touring and fishing.

The Compass comes with two moulded rod holders, plus two H-Track rails in easy reach either side of your legs which allows you to easily attached accessories without the need to drill or glue. The generous rear tank well is compatible with the Hobie H-Crate and Livewell, and is complemented by a twist-lock hatch between your legs and a mesh covered bow compartment.

The Compass comes equipped with Mirage Drive 180 V2 with Kick-Up Fins - these fins will automatically kick up out of harms way if you hit an object whilst pedaling. They will automatically re-engage as you keep pedaling. This greatly reduces the chance of damaging your drive whilst on the move! The MD180 offers forwards and reverse pedalling at the simple pull of a toggle. Steering is easy with the fingertip controlled rudder on the stern, so you can happily fish, take photos or grab your water bottle all on the move. The quick-drying mesh seat is easy to recline and adjust to get the perfect position, and is comfortable enough to stay out all day. You can also stow smaller items under the seat for convenience. There is a vertical accessory tube fitted at the front of the footwell - this can be used with the Hobie Sail Kit or used with a Ram Mount Mast Tube Wedge Mount for mounting other accessories such as a fish finder mount or camera mount.

As you would expect from Hobie, the Mirage Compass is Lowrance-Ready, making fitting a fish finder super easy thanks to the cable routing and oversized scupper for transducer mounting.

All in all the Mirage Compass is a well rounded kayak offering premium features on a high performance 12ft hull, but perhaps the best feature of this Hobie is the great value price point!
