The Seattle Sports Scupper Swift Kayak Cart features air-less WaveChaser wheels and a tromboning adjustment to make the Swift the best sit-on-top cart on the market. Slide your boat easily on to, or off the cushioned uprights and away you go! A super beefy 35mm gauge axle can take all sorts of abuse, while the airless wheels eliminate all flat tire hassle. A deep, ruby-red anodized coating finishes the cart. Adjusts from 8.5 to 18 inch width between scupper holes.

Great cart! I have been using with my Hobie PA12 on 4 trips now. Works well. I use a fish gripper to lock the cart in place when unloading from my truck bed. Seem well designed/heavy duty.
At first, I was thrilled with the design (breakdown and store in nose of Kayak) and the price....but after the axel failed TWICE in less than 3 months use, I am not so happy. In fairness to Seattle Sports, this cart might work well with a stripped down light kayak....but if you have a heavy kayak with a decent amount of mounted gear...the axel will bend and eventually become unusable in a short period of time. Seattle Sports sent me THREE replacements initially...and they all had manufacturing flaws with the upper riser either having a flawed weld or it was welded on crooked/slight angle. I have pictures to back it up. After the second one failed, Seattle Sports tried to say "user error" caused the failure...and they refused to warranty the product. My kayak weighs about 135 lbs loaded...they rated this cart to 150lbs....don't believe it.
This is a greal product. It does what it is designed to do. Portable, light weight and easy to assemble and disassemble. The only problem was that a small spring loaded push button was broken when I receivedo it. It would seem a small effort to make on the part of the manufacturer to insure everything worked before it shipped. Otherwise the concept and overall construction is good. ACK was great to deal with and considering the many items I bought from them including the awesome OT Predator 13, this was a minor problem that they resolved quickly.
I've used it 6 times now, it's doing very well. With gear my kayak only weighs 60-75 lbs, so I don't know how much it will carry. I have a 1.5 mile portage on the river I go to most, and this has made it very easy to do. I strap it in the back during paddling, so I'd have to do a follow up when it starts to rust. I use a clacker strap to secure it to the boat, probably don't need it if I wasn't lifting the back end of it time to time. I'll be buying another when this one finally rust away.
