ABN Kayak Carrier - Trolley for Kayaks, Canoes, Paddleboards

ABN Kayak Carrier - Trolley for Kayaks, Canoes, Paddleboards

Description

The ABN Universal Kayak Carrier is a practical tool for carting your kayak, canoe, paddleboard, float mat, or jon boat. It is designed to be durable with a 200-pound weight limit and constructed from high-strength anodized steel, making it both long-lasting and lightweight at just 8lbs.

One of the standout features of this carrier is its tire design. The 9.5” knobby tires are easy to inflate and allow for smooth movement across rough surfaces such as sand, gravel, and through wooded areas.

The carrier also includes several useful features for protecting your vessel. It is equipped with oversized foam bumper pads to prevent scratches or dents. A 12-foot tie down strap is included to secure your vessel during transport. Additionally, it has a spring-loaded kickstand for quick and easy loading.

When it comes to storage and transport, this carrier is compact and convenient. It can be easily folded and the tires can be removed with the lynch pin. This means that the entire carrier can be stored in a large backpack or even inside your vessel while on the water.

Now, let's address some frequently asked questions:

Q: Would this work for a Hobie 14' Pro Angler?

A: My one person kayak is 50lbs, and I transport it about 100 meters from my house to the water's edge. The Hobie 14 is 122lbs empty. In my opinion, this carrier may not be suitable for you. I would recommend a wider and stronger carrier.

Q: Can I hook this to the back of my golf cart?

A: No, the carrier is placed to the rear of the kayak. It is unlikely that the kayak will stay on the carrier if you hit bumps, holes, rocks, or increase speed. This carrier is designed so that you place the wheels under the kayak toward the rear and pull the kayak from its front strap.

Q: I will be using this on a six-day, 165-mile canoe trip. How small does this fold up, and how much does it weigh?

A: It folds up to a pretty compact size, but it will take up space in your canoe throughout the trip while you're in the water. The size and weight will depend on how big your canoe is and how much space you have for cargo during your canoe trip.

Q: How does this work for paddleboards?

A: I would say it works very similarly to how it works on a kayak. The paddleboard is strapped toward one end of the vessel, and it should roll easily.
