- The Hobie Passport 10.5 offers all the benefits of the Mirage Drive pedal system in a simplified kayak at fantastic price point. The Passport 10.5 is a compact and nimble kayak designed for those wanting pedal power without all the extra accessories found on the premium range of Mirage Drive kayaks. Lightweight and easy to move around off the water, the Passport features a two-tone thermoformed hull, with injection-moulded mirage drive well. Simply plug in the Mirage Drive and pedal away! At 10.5ft long the Passport is easily handled by adults, teenagers and children alike. The hull is stable and tracks well in a straight line. Great for general touring and cruising as well as for a spot of fishing on calm waters.
Equipped with a Classic Mirage Drive, this drive system keeps things simple for ease of use and for easy maintenance. The pedal crank arms are adjustable to allow for users of various heights to use the Passport. Fitted with efficient ST fins for great performance. The Passport comes with a aluminium frame mesh seat with tilt adjustment for a comfortable pedaaling experience. The seat can also be used as a beach chair.
The Passport has a rudder system for steering the kayak whilst pedalling. The rudder is manually deployed and hauled when launching and landing and is controlled using the steering handle beside the seat. The system uses a push-pull rod design for direct control and ease of maintenance and tuning. There are several storage areas on the kayak with a rear cargo area with bungees, a bow storage area with bungees and a 8in Twist-N-Seal hatch located in front of the seat. Other features include two flush mount rod holders, accessory mounting tracks beside the footwell, carry handles at the bow, stern and sides, and a vertical accessory tube for optional accessories such as the Sail Kit and Bimini.
An affordable option for those wanting their first pedal drive kayak, or for those wanting a Mirage Drive kayak without spending out on the premium range.
