If you are using this cart to go from the parking lot to
the docks it will work OK, but if you are doing the Bowron
lakes circuit look for something else. I called Malone
before purchase to ask if it would hold up on my trip and
was told no problem, and they even sent me some spare
parts just in case, but on the first day the cart bent and
the bolt that holds the two sides together would slip and
let it slide apart. It bent so bad the wheels were
touching the bottom of the kayak and I ended up using tie
wraps to hold it together and jamming tree limbs into the
two posts to keep them from bending more and breaking.
Even then I had to stop every 40 or 50 feet to adjust the
cart so it wouldnt tip. Not fun on a 1.5 mile portage.
Other carts on the trip worked far better, but wouldnt fit
my ride 115 due to the hull design. This cart needs to go
back to the drawing board before it gets called heavy
duty. Im giving it two stars only because of the customer
support I received prior to purchase.
This product works as promised
and is very high quality. I
highly recommend it!!!!!
Cart was easy to put together
and works as designed. Larger
style tires make it work
better. It is so much easier
to move my kayak with the
Malone Xpress Scupper Kayak
Fits Hobie Outfitter kayak
very well. A little difficult
to pull through grass, but
does the job. Just noticed one
of the tee connectors is
broken and it has only been
used four times. Construction
looks fairly sturdy but design
of the tee connectors should
I won this in a KATS tourney and for a cart I
would give it a 5 star, because the tires will
never go flat, it is light weight and can compact
down great to fit into your kayak. The reason I
am giving it three stars is because if you plan on
carrying a fully rigged fishing kayak to the
water, you would have to turn in on its side to
put the cart under your yak. Its not a bad thing
when heading to the water, but it is a complete
pain when you are heading back to the car. For
me, I need the cart that you strap you yak to, but
if you kayak with out a lot of gear, this is a
Malone Xpress Scupper Kayak
Service from ACK was great.
One of crossbar assemblies was
too long so holes for bolt
didn't line up. I used a flat
file to shorten the assembly
and then it fit fine. Water
around here (Wyoming) is a bit
thick right now so haven't
taken it out but works fine in
garage. 4 stars since had to
do slight modification
Works as advertised. Could be built a little stronger, but for the money it works.
The Malone Xpress cart didn't
perform well at all. The
hinge broke while carrying my
Tarpon 120. I got a
warrantied replacement because
it was the first use. The
replacement broke on the 3rd
use. I returned that and got
a Scupper Pup and haven't had
a problem with that after over
a dozen times.

The Cart works GREAT!!!! Easy
car to water transport! Love
It!!! Love Austin Kayak!
Great Cart , have used the
strap on ones before and it
was a total disaster , this
one is very easy to use ad
once you put it upside down in
the sculpers , you can cary it
Works great for the "Baby
Boomer" group. Have used the
strap to the yak only once and
ended up being more work.
Does every thing I expected.
Good price too.
