The Trax 2 Kayak Cart is the best all around cart for soft sand and uneven terrain. It has 24 cm blow-molded polyurethane pneumatic tires that have a higher capacity and are very durable! The larger sidewall prevents pinching and valve damage under heavy loads. The Hobie Trax 2 Cart has a welded Stainless steel construction, solid stainless axle, and 176 lb capacity. Wheels are easily removable for storage. Also includes cart keeper feature and cart clamps.
|Capacity:||176 lb / 79.83 kg|
It works well on hard and soft surfaces. Easy to use, and stow.
I've used the Hobie Trax for a few years now on pavement/ramps, dragging over beaches, rocks and driftwood. Pros: -Scupper carts don't require strapping (or straps) -Works relatively well on nearly all terrain, but it does sink into soft sand Cons: -Welds are absolutely garbage, they will break, its only a matter of when. -Using a scupper cart does put pressure on the scuppers, a vulnerable part of any sit on top kayak. Final word: The welds were easy to fix at a local welding shop, which is much cheaper than buying a new frame. The Wheelez large beach cart is a another option that may be better for some folk as it has wider wheels but it does require strapping. For my purposes it works good enough, especially after getting it properly welded.
I purchased this for an Adventure Island solo version. If you paddle solo and don't want to have to ask someone to carry your boat with you, this is the way to go. After having build a cart I decided that being able to carry the cart with me and being able to carry it in sand made getting this a no brainer. Light, compact and fat tires make this a great cart
Hobie Trax Cart- I have had my cart for two years- it worked great until the tack welds failed- they ALL failed, not one or two but all- poor quality workmanship that is unacceptable- a single pass weld would have lasted forever and that is exactly what I had a certified welder do to fix my cart- he welded a complete single pass with a tig welder using 318 filler- not the single tacks that the factory used to tack it together-
