The Hobie Mirage Eclipse 10.5 is a stand-up paddleboard without a paddle; or it’s a pedal-powered paddleboard or an aquatic Stairmaster propelled simply by walking (or maybe running, if you really want to work up a sweat). For balance, which paddleboarders can take lessons to achieve, the Eclipse comes with bicyclelike handlebars. (And you know you never forget how to ride a bike.) Support yourself by gripping the handlebars, which also have bicycle-brakelike levers — only instead of for stopping, they’re used for turning. (Squeeze the right-brake thingy and you turn right, squeeze the left-brake thingy to turn left.)

While its handling in light chop and rough water depends on the pilot's balance and center of gravity, Hobie says the Eclipse can cruise at up to 7 mph. The Mirage Eclipse comes in two versions: a 12-foot model with a 275-pound capacity, and a smaller 10.5-foot model, which can carry 225 pounds. Features include gear tie-downs, a kick-up rudder, a cup holder and a mount for the obligatory smartphone. Here's the kicker: The pedal drive and handlebars can be detached for the occasional analog paddleboarding session. The paddle, however, is not included. $2,600; hobiecat.com
