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.
I purchased this cart for my older model (200?) Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140. Previously, I was using homemade carts made from pvc pipe. However, after my homemade carts kept breaking, I decided to invest in a real cart. I chose the Seattle Sports Scupper cart because of it's price, simple design, and tires that I don't have to worry about them deflating. I like the wide and solid tires and the aluminum frame body feels like a bicycle frame. Fortunately, the cart scupper poles just do fit into my scupper holes when the cart is adjusted to the most narrow setting position, shew! The cart is a bit heavy, which is the only drawback, but I think the weight is due to the solid construction and components. I use the cart on grass and dirt and it works flawlessly. I have not used it on sand yet, but believe it would work in that condition with no problem too. I am very pleased with the cart and recommend it to my friends.
This is a nice little kayak scupper cart. I used it the first time going up a very rocky hill with exposed tree roots and boulders. This was expecting too much for the size of the wheels to roll over (would have needed bicycle sized wheels for that!) , but once I got to the trail, if worked very well, was light and easily stowable once I got to the lake. I used it on a Perceptiopn Pescador Pro120 and it fit very well. The uprights are small to be able to fit inside the scupper holes, I just hope the looseness doesn't cause stress cracks around the scupper holes-I will keep an eye on that...
