Kayak Wheel System - wheels attach, deploy, and retract without having to tip the kayak over on side. Includes a machined gear track on top of each knuckle for mounting fishing accessories. Made in North Carolina... always will be.
You will notice the thumb bolts are no longer shown on the Landing Gear. These have been removed, and replaced with a 27" Bungee to tether your wheels together in the up position. The weight of the boat itself will keep your legs in position during movement.
The set-screws for the crossbar are now located in the gear track on the top side of the knuckle. This will allow you to keep your knuckles level during installation.
The Landing Gear legs are now all 24", giving the needed clearance on larger hulled boats, and allowing for easier loading/unloading with no or less drag. The legs are now also wide enough to accept either the no-flat tire, or the Sand Tires.
Color: Silver legs, aluminum knuckles, orange extension bar.
Size: Width is optimized for mounting directly behind the seat on the Hobie Outback enabling full use of rear tank area for items such as the Hobie Livewell
Custom Reinforcement Bar:Utilizes solid stainless steel round rods to accommodate narrow mounting space on the Hobie Outback
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.
