Kayak Wheel System - wheels attach, deploy, and retract without having to tip the kayak over on side. You will no longer need to unpack your boat at the end of the day, simply pull the legs out, place in down position, and re-insert. Your legs will ride with you on the water, and be readily available when it is time to call it a day.
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.
All standard kits now come with a 27" spacer bar. Depending on your mounting location you may need to trim this spacer bar down to allow for proper fitting of the wheel struts into the knuckle.
Also all kits come with a set of the UHMW stiffeners to be used in conjunction with the stainless steel backing plates.
Made in North Carolina... always will be.
**Please check the UHMW Stiffener page for recommended use on various kayaks for added internal support and recommended shapes.
Color: Silver legs, Aluminum knuckles, orange extension bar.
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.
