Mirage 520
Shorter and wider than its big siblings, the 520 is a great first kayak to build your skills. With that extra bit of stability and a lightweight build that makes moving and storage a breeze, the 520 is also sleek and fast through the water.

PLEASE NOTE: As each and every Mirage kayak is made to order and hand-crafted, there is a varying wait time on new boats.



  • Unique Mirage foot pedals and integrated rudder system
  • Dual dry storage compartments – great seaworthiness and good storage capacity
  • Safety perimeter line, grab handles and functional elastic deck rigging
  • Contoured, supportive, ergonomic seat
  • Solid footrest platform, enhances paddler performance
  • Component upgrade compatible
  • The 520 fibreglass version does not come with the comfort seat kit (foam padding and backband)
  • The standard colourway is a solid colour deck with white hull
