Drag Your Yak…on a Wheel

| August 26, 2012 | 3 Comments

Feel Free Wheel Design

Over the last several years, we’ve begun to see a new revolution in kayak design focused on customer convenience specifically the integration of a kayak wheel. At first I was skeptical but through multiple uses I have personally grown to appreciate their usefulness. I think this is a good step in the right direction for some manufacturers including Feel Free and Native Watercraft both offering their own take on kayak wheel designs. I am curious to see if other kayak manufacturers will follow through with this trend as well.

Here are a few examples:

Native Watercraft Manta Ray 12

Native Watercraft Versa Board Angler

Feel Free Moken & Moken Light

Feel Free Corona Tandem

So what’s your take on kayaks with integrated wheels? – Roland @ACK

    wondering about turning a skeg into a wheel to serve dual purpose. Just a thought. Cheers Greg

    Greg, that would be interesting, so you mean remove the skeg and replace it with a wheel that is about the width of the skeg? My only concern would be is if the area around there can support all that weight of the boat. Cheers, Roland

    I would love to see someone to make a wheel you could add to your kayak.I have a Big Yak that I fish from and it would be handy if you had to drag your yak any distance.
