The Malone MicroSport XT Kayak Trailer further enhances the base model of the MicroSport Trailer by adding a removable/retractable tongue for easy storage, aluminum spoke wheels and diamond plate aluminum fenders for a great custom look. The 8 ft. tongue can be removed in less than 10 seconds which allows the MicroSport XT to be stored vertically against a wall taking up less than 20 sq. ft. of space. Made in the USA

I did a lot of research before setting my mind on the Malone trailer. Very good quality, easy assembly. I went with the aluminum wheels and fenders and the retractable tongue. The wrong box of wheels were shipped, but ACK figured it all out and sent the correct ones. Overall i am very happy with this purchase. As always ACK provides the best prices and service.
Have yet to use on the road but assembly was relatively easy. Instructions are good for the most part but more direction on where, specifically, washers were to be placed would be helpful. Wiring needs to be better protected from the elements (maybe by adding a length of clear plastic tubing to the kit) and I did need to add a few cable ties to ensure wires stayed in position. I substituted my longer Thule bars to hold two 38" wide touring canoes. I gave consideration in my buying decision to the fact that all my Thule fittings worked on the stock Malone bar, it just was not long enough to hold the two wider canoes. Still working on fitting these length-wise (both are 17 ft long) and I may need to move the front bar forward along the tongue to minimize rear overhang. I will be checking with Malone to obtain their suggestions. Overall, a very nice trailer at a competitive price.
