Landing Gear HD
This kit is designed for the Solo Skiff & Hobie PA 17T in mind. Thicker stainless steel legs provide extra support for the added weight that comes with the skiff and the 17T.
The Landing Gear kayak wheel system uses wheels which attach, deploy, and retract. The Landing Gear can be installed directly to the rear of the center cargo area, which provides a great location to alleviate the carrying weight of the Skiff.
The kit includes knuckles, installation hardware, a 27" crossbar, and a HD set of Legs/Wheels.
** If purchasing for the SOLO skiff it is recommended to purchase the UHMW wedge as well. This will go under the knuckle on the top side to assist with the slope of the gunnel. If you do this you may need to purchase bolts up to 3" long (5/16 - 18 is the thread)
New Changes for 2018:
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.
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.
