Road to the water is easier than ever. Includes cart assembly only.
Our standard portage cart (previously called the Kayak/Board Cart) is ideal for pulling a kayak or paddle/surf board by hand or behind your bicycle. If you need an ultra-light portage cart with quality bicycle wheels with precision bearings, then this is the cart for you. If you want to tow it behind your bicycle then please order the optional Smart Stick or Towing Tee.
The cart fits under your kayak and has two folding, padded supports. Our ultra-light design is made of aluminum, and 16" bicycle wheels which can be quickly removed for storage. This cart keeps the canoe 17" off the ground, and the axel is 7" off the ground. The cart can also be used for portaging... pulling the boat by hand or behind your bicycle. It can carry a maximum of 75 lb behind a bicycle or 100 lb if pulled by hand. The cart holds the boat above the wheels, so it can hold a boat of any width (which can be great for canoes on narrower paths), however, wider heavier boats will be top heavy and tippy with this cart. (A wider size is available as the Heavy Duty Boat Cart).

And if you want to tow your boat behind your bicycle then you will need the Smart Stick

16" Precision Plastic Quick Release
A pack with a shoulder strap that can hold ultra-light boat trailers including the cart, 16" wheels and smart stick. The pack is a tidy velcro closing bag.
Our Smart Stick is ideal for pulling a kayak, canoe or paddle/surf board behind your bicycle. It consists of a seat post hitch which bolts on to your seat post (the hitch will fit on seat posts from 1" to 1.5" (25 mm - 38 mm) in diameter) and a 27" aluminium extension tube that reaches above and behind the rear wheel of your bicycle to connect to your boat. Your boat or board must have a bow handle, bow ring or bowline to tie the boat to the end of the Smart Stick. When using the Smart Stick the pivot is at the bow of the boat, so it will be difficult to keep the boat straight behind the bike if you stand on your pedals, pump hard, and swing your bike from side to side. Please remain seated when using the Smart Stick.
I just wanted to let you know that I love your company, your service, and your products! I ordered my kayak trailer over the weekend, and it was at my door by Wednesday. (Thanks for your email that gave me the expected arrival day along with the tracking number. That bit of info was very much appreciated!) When I pulled the trailer out of the box, I found it extremely easy to put together. And, I love the fact that I can load my kayak on it by myself. This is the best ever solution for those who kayak solo! I am able to use the trailer to slide the kayak in and out of storage. And hitching it to my bike was so easy: I only noticed a difference when I was biking up a slight incline because the incline made me feel the weight of the kayak. But that's to be expected. Altogether, I love how this bike trailer frees me from trying to load the kayak on top of my car. And, the fact that I can use it as a cart as well, to get my kayak down to the shore and then back up again is an added bonus! I am in love with your trailer! Thank you so much for a great product!
I did have a bit of trouble getting the tab pin to unlock so I could hitch my kayak to the bike, but a handy-dandy screw driver got me the leverage I needed. I'm told the pin will loosen up a bit with use. Until then, I'll need to keep a screw driver handy. But that's a small price to pay for the independent use of the kayak. Thanks again for taking the time to answer my questions before I ordered. You make such a great product!
