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.

Just received...arrived in 3 days. Just seconds to assemble, but one end of the axle required I drill the missing 15/64" second hole for fully inserting the cotter pin. Easy to adjust to and insert into my Ocean Kayak SOT's scuppers. Rolled around the yard easily. Looking forward to a riverside test soon!
This cart does not work well with the Wilderness Ride 115X. You have to use the first scupper holes at the stern or bow or the wheels rub on the bottom of the kayak. You end up lifting most of the weight of the kayak which is not light. This cart was recommended for that kayak by ACK.
Smooth ride, easy on and off
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.
