Maintenance and Care

MirageDrive Regular Maintenance

Part # 5121 Multi-Lube Note: Please see the back inside cover for important information about care of your epoxy board.

Check Cable Tension

Cables should be tight enough so they can only be slightly squeezed in under firm finger pressure.

Adjusting Steering Lines

1 Connect steering lines to steering cables. 2 Compress one of the two calipers fully and have your partner hold it. If working alone, use a rubber band or tape to hold the caliper compressed.

Note: You can put a rubber band or tape the caliper to the handlebar to hold it in place if working alone.

3 The rudder will be partially turned in one direction. Manually twist the rudder further in that direction until it hits a hard stop. Next, loosen the screw holding the appropriate adjustment line, pull the slack out and re-tighten.

4 Release the depressed caliper. Compress the other caliper and repeat step 3 for it. 5 Check the rudder function. The rudder should twist full in both directions when the calipers are fully compressed.

How to Keep Your Hobie Mirage Eclipse Looking Beautiful

Every Hobie Mirage Eclipse board is master crafted. The ACX construction – Advanced Composite Epoxy – gleams with a high gloss finish and beautiful graphics. Like all hand crafted products, each board is unique. The differences from one to the next are small. We think of the variations as character and personality. Similar to a new sports car or one of Hobie’s high-performance Apex RAW 4R racing boards, the beauty of the Mirage Eclipse board will last longer with proper care. To preserve the high gloss finish, avoid bump ing into rocks, gravel, docks or other objects. Hobie recommends that you launch the Mirage Eclipse in water that reaches up to your knees – about sixteen inches deep. Not only will this prevent damage to the beautiful board finish, it allows the MirageDrive® and rudder room to operate without striking the bottom. When finished with your outing, step off your Mirage Eclipse in knee deep water. Refrain from running the board into the beach while in use. ACX boards feature strong, composite construction. Paint chips and scratches are superficial, normal wear. They won’t impact performance. To keep your Hobie Mirage Eclipse in top shape and get the most out of your board, be sure to start by viewing the Quick Start video before us ing. To keep your new Eclipse looking its best, follow these routine care recommendations. • Rinse with fresh water after each use. • Keep the board clean and dry for extended storage, preferably in an Eclipse protective board bag. • When stored, keep the board out of direct sunlight or extreme heat or cold. • Do not store the board in water as it could lead to osmotic blistering.

• We encourage owners to use the accessory beach cart for easier transport on land and use rail, nose and tail protection tape to further protect against scratches. • Store or rack the board pad down. • Board bags, beach carts, protective tape and rack pads are all available through your Hobie Authorized Eclipse Dealer.

With care, your Mirage Eclipse will retain its beauty.
