Feel Free Wheel Design

Over the last several years, we’ve begun to see a new revolution in kayak design focused on customer convenience specifically the integration of a kayak wheel. At first I was skeptical but through multiple uses I have personally grown to appreciate their usefulness. I think this is a good step in the right direction for some manufacturers including Feel Free and Native Watercraft both offering their own take on kayak wheel designs. I am curious to see if other kayak manufacturers will follow through with this trend as well.

Here are a few examples:

Native Watercraft Manta Ray 12

Native Watercraft Versa Board Angler

Feel Free Moken & Moken Light

Feel Free Corona Tandem

So what’s your take on kayaks with integrated wheels? – Roland @ACK


  1. Greg, that would be interesting, so you mean remove the skeg and replace it with a wheel that is about the width of the skeg? My only concern would be is if the area around there can support all that weight of the boat. Cheers, Roland
