As they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – which is why the Hobie Mirage Passport 10.5 R really hasn’t changed significantly in terms of design. What has changed is the construction technique; rather than employing the thermoformed build, the passport R series are rotomolded. The specifications of the Hobie Passport 10.5 R are otherwise identical to the original Passport 10.5 and we imagine performance is going to be pretty much identical as well.
The Hobie Mirage Passport 10.5 R is coming soon…ish (no ETA or price is currently available).
