Mirage 532

Designed for performance, the Mirage 532 combines speed with dependable handling in challenging conditions for a wide range of paddlers. 

532

 

A complete redesign of the famous 530, the Mirage 532 is a great all-rounder; built for speed and efficiency, while also being sporty and easy to control when maneuvering. Extra volume has been added behind the cockpit, enhancing the hull shape to suit a wider range of body types.

 

Perfect for:

• Medium to large sized paddlers, from beginner through to advanced paddling skills

• Fitness paddling and day touring to multiday touring in more confined bodies of water e.g. lakes, estuaries, to coastal environments

 

What’s New:

• The 532 has had a complete hull and deck re-design for a more modern look and refined performance.

• The 532 has an increase in hull volume from the rear seat through to the rudder box; this allows for the following:

* The kayak plains flatter when you are up to speed, thus making the 532 a faster and smoother kayak than the 530

* The 532 allows for an increase in ideal paddler weight – about the 80-90kg area

• The 532 has the ‘shallow V’ carried back further to increase the initial stability and make the kayak less twitchy.

• The 532 has Kajak Sport hatches – front, day and rear.

 

Mirage 532 Features:

• Unique Mirage pedal and integrated rudder system which improves propulsion and offers superior directional control

• Three high volume dry storage compartments with easy access snap lid hatches – great seaworthiness and good storage capacity including convenient day hatch – These hatches are made by Kajak Sport Finland.

• Full safety perimeter line, grab handles and functional elastic deck rigging

• Contoured, supportive, ergonomic seat

• Solid footrest platform, enhances paddler performance

• Component upgrade compatible – look at our Outfitting section to find out how you can customise your kayak.

The ‘Ultra Light’ 532 IRT is constructed with a combination of a Kevlar skin and a thin layer of Soric that is sandwiched in between. We then use IRT to provide incredible strength and rigidity, with optimum weight.
