Groovy Landing Gear
** We have started shipping orders and will continue to ship all of our orders in the order that they came in which includes our dealers. That is the only fair way we can do it. A lot of people took advantage of pre-ordering, so if you are just now placing your order it may be 3 - 5 weeks before we can ship all of the orders ahead of yours out. We really appreciate your patience and we are working over time to get orders out. **
The BooneDOX® Landing Gear® is a kayak wheel system utilizing receptacles that permanently attach to the top of your boat - wheels attach, deploy, and retract without having to tip the kayak over on its side. Our Landing Gear uses solid foam wheels, preventing the possibility of ever going flat.
Optional Sand Tire Kit sold separately.
New for 2019, the Landing Gear® just got "Groovy." With the kayak angler in mind, we’ve refined our product to include gear grooves on all sides of the receptacles as well as the center link bar, resulting in up to 70+ inches of track for attaching rod-holders, safety flags, lights, paddle clips, camera mounts, etc.
This stronger, lighter, more-rugged design uses anodized aluminum and stainless-steel components to perform in the most strenuous of environments.
**** Rated for 180lbs **** If your set-up exceeds this you need the HD kit.
Please choose from these available kits:
Standard - this kit will work on pretty much all brands / models of kayaks (Native, Jackson, Wilderness, NuCanoe etc) that do not have specific kits listed below. This kit comes with a set of the UHMW stiffeners to enable you to create a custom support system to fit your installation point.
Hobie Pro Angler's 2015 - Current models - Each PA kit comes with spacers that have been proven to work with year models from 2015 to current. The kit also comes with 9" backing plates standard
Hobie Pro Angler 2014 & older - The only difference in this kit and the 2015 - current is the spacers for the h-rail. The 2014 & older requires a taller spacer to go under the h-rail.
Hobie Outback - There are two options for the Hobie Outback. For 2018 & older boats this is the kit you will want to use. For 2019 Outbacks you can use this kit, or if you want to install it on the flat area next to the storage tray like seen in the picture of the papaya colored boat (shown with upgraded kiwi tires) you can purchase the Standard kit above. It comes with the flat backing plate and the UHMW stiffener used in that install. ** See UHMW stiffener page for the shape that was used in installation on the Outback that is pictured
Sloped - This kit is the same as the standard kit except it comes with the UHMW wedge that will go under the knuckle on the top to help level out the knuckles due to the sloped top of the kayak. This kit is to be used with the Bonafide line of kayaks and the Hobie Compass in certain installation locations.
HD kit - The HD kit comes with heavier duty legs to help withstand the weight of boats such as the SOLO skiff and the Hobie PA 17T. This kit has also been used on John boats with small outboard motors. Each kit comes with 9" backing plates and UHMW stiffener. **If purchasing for the PA 17T you will need to get the PA Spacer kit as well to raise the h-rail on the PA to allow for the knuckle to go under. Also, for SOLO skiff customers, some customers have reported the need for the UHMW Wedge but not on all applications. If you do purchase the wedge you will need longer bolts than what comes in the kit.
SUP - This kit was originally designed for the LIVE SUP line but can be used on other SUP's / Kayak's and comes with hardware that utilizes the tracks on the SUP's and does not use backing plates. *** Keep in mind most kayak's do not have gear tracks that are designed to hold the weight of your kayak and if used in this manner may not be covered under warranty.
* Landing Gear® legs and wheels are intended for transportation only. The Landing Gear® is not intended to support the weight of a kayak during storage. Leaving the Landing Gear® deployed during storage can cause flat spotting on tires and added stress to your kayak.
