HandiKart FAQs

Stylish, versatile, and easy to use the 2015 HandiKart from HandiWorld sets new standards for the transportation of kayaks & canoes. Light, but rugged, the HandiKart kayak trolley makes the transfer of equipment from the car to the water’s edge undemanding and effortless. The revised HandiKart benefits from all the feedback we’ve received from paddlers.

The frame is wider to improve stability, the durability of the rubber tyres improved and perhaps even more importantly, the new strapping system allows paddlers to really secure the boat to the HandiKart which is essential for portages across rough terrain. We have also added some thicker foam tubes to the frame for extra protection.

The new HandiKart is still very easy to stow. It folds up into a compact shape that is easily stowed in the kayak or canoe and can be quickly dismantled for when space is really at a premium.

Devised and developed in the UK, the unique and patented Camba technology that drives the HandiKart offers further benefits to the paddle sports enthusiast. It combines a hemi-spherical wheel with inclined axles to provide all terrain access with the additional benefit of an element of intuitive resistance and braking.

The Camba wheel also features an active variable footprint (AVF) whereby the point of contact on hard surfaces is optimised and the wheel intuitively adapts to softer surfaces (such as sand) to create a wider footprint. It’s all in the geometry.
