This cart is perfect. I tried two other carts and it was frustrating.
The unique hull design of the Native kayaks needs this cart. Other
carts needs careful adjustment and never really hold the tunnel hull
of the Native kayaks. It would take me 15 minutes to secure a
regular cart. The Native Ultimate Cart takes about a minute and can
be positioned anywhere in the hull depending in your preference. I
like the middle to balance the weight when moving my 14' boat.
If you're going to invest in a Native kayak you need this cart.
It's easy to put together and use.
One of my tires was flat when I
got it. It's kind of wimpy for the
money, but then again, it is light
good quality, easy to use and
love the it assembles and packs
Dick in Fla.
OK. I expected better quality for the price. I have the same
problem as one of the reviewers below - the cap on the front of
the shell doesn't close when the wheels are inside. The material
was cheaply cast, such that the cap is supposed to close tight by
way of a bump-and-hole snap on either side of the front. These
don't meet and thus don't secure, especially once the tires are
aired. The lid will hold on its own loosely, but will require a bungee
for certainty. Also, I have had two wheels deteriorate and
separate. Austin has been great about replacing the wheels. For
the price paid, I expected more from Native.
Works great and very easy to
Cart works great...compact...ACK
service is the greatest
When I first received the cart
and attempted to assemble it, I
found that the body holes were
not inline. They were about
1/2" off and would not allow
the axle to pass through. ACK
and Native Watercraft
immediately sent a
replacement. While the holes in
the replacement were inline,
they were cut too small for the
axle to be pushed through.
Instead of repeating the
process, I simply used a small
knife to trim away some of the
plastic, but leaving enough to
make a snug fit. I like the
compactness, but after seeing
some of the other carts
available, I "would not"
purchase this unit again.
Cart worked great. Very stable
and compact. Very easy
solid , well made . Gets thru the
sand better than i anticipated.
Perfect for wheeling my Ultimate
14.5 from the storage shed in
back yard out to my truck.
Doesnt take up much space.
The Native kayak cart is a
great item to have. Like all
Native accessories it is a bit
expensive but boats like the
Ultimate 14.5 haul like a
dream on most surfaces. Note:
most surfaces. If you get into
any type of dry, deep beach
sand typical you will not
enjoy using the wheel cart.
When I encounter such
situations the cart must come
off. Other than that it works
well and is a must have
These wheels really do make a
difference, very happy with
them. Very easy to use and the
whole setup is surprisingly
compact. I keep them with me
when I paddle to portage into
