Gosea xtreme KTB-80 Cradle Trolley - Blue

The GoSea Extreme KTB-80 Cradle Trolley is the heavy duty version of the gosea trolley range ideal for larger kayaks and tandem’s

This is my review of the Extreme KTB-80
This is a heavy duty trolley as the name suggests It the extreme that really describes this trolley it has a number of innovative features .
It is made from heavy duty anodized marine grade aluminum which has had a blue dye applied to the finish in every way this is a quality product with only the finest quality components being used in its manufacture

This is a compact rugged trolley that will take a suggested load up to approx 80kg
This makes it ideal for the heavier kayaks and tandems.
The trolley comes complete with a 2 part cam buckle tie down strap

Image description

this trolley has a special shaped inner Axel support which is designed to give extra Clarence on the roughest ground

Image description

fitted to each corner of the kayak supports are heavy duty duplon grip sponges these have a dual purpose firstly they grip the kayaks hull tightly so it wont slip and secondly they support and cushion the kayaks hull so no damage can be done while transporting to and from the water.

Image description

The fittings are stainless steel with stainless steel springs and locking nuts between each moving section there is a hard wearing shaped nylon bush this makes it easier to open and close and ensures no trapped fingers

Image description

The wheels attach to a heavy duty stub Axel which is caped with a nylon internal cap to deter water ingress

Image description

These Tyre's are different to anything else we have seen they are a solid form which means no punctures no messing about pumping them up and very rugged material which is quite soft to the touch they are fitted to shatterproof plastic hubs and are fitted to the trolley with removable locking pins this is great for storage

Image description

The whole thing can be dis-assembled in seconds and stored in the kayaks hatch or the rear tankwell

Image description

The double support legs are neatly finished and caped with rubber feet to stop any slipping while loading the kayak on hard ground both feet have retaining straps so they cant open too far
