Here is an interesting article for listeners to the outdoor lifestyle news radio, outdoor activities radio stations and the other outdoor recreation radio stations on a new product from Hobie.
In recent years many outdoor enthusiasts have taken up kayaking or paddle boards to stay in shape while away from the gym. This year Hobie has combined their MirageDrive pedal system with 65 years of board sports expertise to create the World's First ever stand up pedal board, the Hobie Mirage Eclipse 10.5 and the Hobie Mirage Eclipse 12.
Using these boards is safe and is as simple as walking. Just step on and go. No seat, paddle or overboard slashes required. These boards should be a hit with anyone seeking a fun and easy way to play on the water along with a way to stay fit outside of the gym. Both the Hobie Mirage Eclipse 10.5 and 12 are a great option for resorts or tour operates that are looking to give their clients a new experience on the water. The Eclipse was designed just right for making them portable on cars, sailboats, powerboats and for easy storage when not in use.
The natural stepping motion on the large pedals connected to the underwater fins, efficiently allows you to go as slow or fast as you desire on the Eclipse with high strength composite epoxy hull harness of Hobie board sport heritage and its quick displacement design allow for the bow to gracefully pierce through the water. This in turn enhances speed and glide of the board. The square tail and flat bottom, adds to the boards quiet and stable ride.
The nice thing about the Eclipse is that the fins fold against the board for shallow water use and beaching landings. The handle bar steering controls for the board are made of aluminum alloy and couldn't be simpler to use. To go right, simply squeeze the right caliper. To go left squeeze the left caliper with an adjustable handle bar from 36 to 43 inches high, kids to adults can enjoy either the Hobie Mirage Eclipse 10.5 and the Hobie Mirage Eclipse 12.
The fins can also be locked into place which allows you to use it in the traditional SUP manner so that you can enjoy an upper body workout by paddling it. The large EVA deckpads provides rides with a care free, high traction footing that enhances comfort for all day rides. With plenty of board room a rider has room for extra gear or the family pet to perch on the stern and has cargo bungees on the aft deck to secure your gear.
The Eclipse accessories include a protective board bag and cart to make transporting easy to and from the water. A cup holder and a universal phone mount are available to help the rider stay hydrated and ready to capture memories that happen on the water. Both sizes come in two colors, Solar (yellow) or Lunar (blue)
