The MirageDrive'" is simple and easy to use. It inserts into the well and the "Click & Go" secures it into position. Your feet rest naturally on the pedals and you push each pedal effortlessly forward, just like walking. With each step the MirageDrive'" "flippers" flex and take the shape of a propeller blade. The larger muscles in our legs produce more powerful propulsion versus arms using a paddle.
