The Hobie Trax 2-30 Kayak Cart has new 30 cm (blow-molded polyurethane) pneumatic tires. These tires have a higher capacity and are very durable! The rim is a smaller diameter which gives a larger sidewall to prevent pinching and valve damage under heavy loads. The pressure range is double that of the original Trax wheels (now 3-4 lbs) which is easier to maintain. The Hobie Trax 2-30 Cart has a 242 lb capacity. This is the best all around cart for soft sand and uneven terrain. The tires are wide and can be deflated for better performance over soft sand and soil. Welded Stainless steel construction, solid stainless axle. Wheels are easily removable for storage. Also includes cart keeper feature and cart clamps. To use the Trax 2-30 cart with a Tandem Island requires the use of the Tandem Island "Plug-In" Cradle to disperse the load.

I just tried my new Hobie Trax 2-30 Kayak Cart this past weekend. It worked great with my Hobie Pro Angler 12 and I'm pleased to say Hobie can hold their head up high on this cart. It's extremely durable and easy to insert and remove from my Hobie Kayak. Thanks Austin Kayak .....
I got this cart to use with my Outback but haven't actually used it in the sand yet. I would be very surprised if it doesn't work flawlessly though. The tires are huge, and significantly larger than the Trax 2 model. As with any cart designed for loose sand, an empty yak pulls a lot better than a loaded yak, but these tires should have the surface area to handle plenty of equipment, especially on the lighter yaks. The build quality of this cart is more sturdy than my other Hobie Heavy Duty model, with slightly more significant welding on the frame. The wheels come off with snap and require no retainer pin. The cart is big though, and heavy. The cart also includes a set of spacers made from electrical conduit pipe that can be slipped over the scupper posts prior to installing the collar clamps in order to raise the clamps to the right height for use with a Pro Angler eliminating any wheel rub on the hull. These spacers, by the way, would be a great DIY fix for the common problem these collars have (on most of the other Hobie models) of slipping down the posts under the weight of a loaded kayak.
