The Native Propel SmartCart Kayak Cart is specifically designed to work with Native Propel Kayaks. It provides stable transport for your kayak from the car to the water. The Propel SmartCart features a base that slides under the hull and inserts through the bottom of the drive trunk for added stability and includes straps for securing the kayak to the cart. The wheels, axles and straps pack inside the body of the cart for storage for storage in your kayak while on the water.
Great little cart....well designed and works like a champ. It's compact when not in use, which means it's available FOR use when you need it. I'm impressed with the thoughtful design of my native 14.5 and the accessories that I've purchased for it....this bit of kit is well worth the price.
First the good. The cart assembles and disassembles easily. You can have this thing ready to go in a couple of minutes. The ability to take the cart apart allows you to take it with you on the water without giving up a lot of space. Now the bad. The propel cart does not truly fit into the propel slot, which makes the cart a little awkward. Also, I have found that the best way to get the kayak on the cart is to tip the kayak on its side. Once again, this is difficult to manage alone. Once the kayak is secured to the cart, however, it is a great tool.
I have been buying kayak equipment for years and enjoy the price, presentation and delivery of the products.
Definitely recommend this kayak carrier for the propel model because it fits into the propel drive hole very well near the center balance point of the kayak making it easy to cart around. With the carrier in place it fits so well you don't need the straps!. It is a bit flimsy plastic and alluminum compared to my stainless steel carrier however and probably can be bent or broken pretty easily
