The NomadTRX conveniently fits in most kayak hatches. This rugged kayak ground transport features most of the ClipperTRX options, in a slightly downsized design. Works best for transporting kayaks with traditional V-style hulls. These carts can safely transport up to 150 lbs and work well with most recreational and touring kayaks. Constructed of tough marine grade aluminum and finished with a silver anodized surface, the kayak cart is built to provide years of dependable service. Features include adjustable rubber padding, corrosion resistant hardware, and full size kick-stand for stable loading.

Each cart is also outfitted with a single on-board cam-style load strap and TRX Never-Go-Flat tires. With the integrated push button wheel release system, the need for wheel retainer clips is eliminated. Product workmanship and material performance is guaranteed with a lifetime limited warranty.


  • TRX airless Never-Go-Flat all-terrain tires
  • Push button wheel release - no more clips to lose
  • Folding silver anodized aluminum frame
  • Single on-board cam-style load strap

Malone NomadTRX Standard Kayak Cart - No Flat Tires - 150 lbs - MAL88FR

Average Customer Rating:  3.7 out of 5 stars   (3 Customer Reviews)


I have a 10 ft. Pelican Catch 100 kayak and it will not stay on this cart. I strapped in several different places and it will not stay on when it hits the slightest bump or turn. Very disappointing.

You mentioned that the cart is not holding your 10 ft. Pelican Catch 100 kayak. I wanted to see if you could send a picture of the kayak on the cart?

  • Is The Malone NomadTRX Cart Compatible With an Inflatable SUP?
    Typically you are supposed to haul your inflatable SUP deflated. If you were to have it inflated on the NomadTRX Cart # MAL88FR it would be just fine.

  • Can Malone NomadTRX Kayak Cart MAL88FR Transport Advanced Elements Inflatable Kayak
    Yes, the Malone NomadTRX Standard Kayak Cart # MAL88FR that you referenced would easily be compatible with your Advanced Elements inflatable kayak. It has more than enough weight capacity and the dimensions of your kayak are perfectly compatible.

  • Kayak Trailer Recommendation for NuCanoe Unlimited Fishing Kayak
    I recommend using the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer # MAL73FR to transport your NuCanoe Unlimited fishing kayak because it can handle up to 400 lbs and it one of the more cost-effective watercraft trailers we carry since it doesn't have any extra provisions like a higher rack system for other equipment. I also recommend picking up the Malone NomadTRX Standard Kayak Cart # MAL88FR to make moving your heavier kayak around much easier. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.

  • Recommended Cart for Rola Cargo Carrier For One Person Transport
    The Rola Swinging Enclosed Cargo Carrier for 2" Trailer Hitch # 59109 does not have scupper holes, but you can absolutely use a kayak or canoe cart to transport the storage unit. You may need help to get it level, but it would absolutely help in moving the weight with just one person. We have these cart options: Malone NomadTRX Standard Kayak Cart - 150 lbs # MAL88FR Malone Clipper Deluxe Kayak and Canoe Cart - 200 lbs # MAL78FR These options all have easily removable wheels and collapsible...

  • Winch Needed That Has 50 feet of Line and Can Easily Pull 50 lb Kayak
    The Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW15019 is currently the most cost-effective option that we have when it comes to a winch with at least 50 feet of line. The 55 feet of galvanized steel wire rope will resist rust and corrosion and will make pulling your kayaks out of the river a breeze since it is rated for 4,400 lbs. Another option would be to use a NomadTRX Kayak Cart # MAL88FR from Malone which has a 150 lbs weight capacity.

  • Strap Recommendation to Secure Kayak to Kayak Cart
    I have a strap solution for you, but it doesn't look like straps used to secure a boat on a cart like the Malone NomadTRX Standard Kayak Cart # MAL88FR are replaceable so I recommend using standard cinch straps instead. The Thule Load Strap Cinch Straps Kit # TH521 will do a great job, you just have to wrap the strap around the frame of the cart so it doesn't slide off. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.

  • Will the Malone NomadTRX Standard Kayak Cart Work On Sand
    The Malone NomadTRX Standard Kayak Cart part # MAL88FR is more designed for rough terrain, the Malone WideTrakS Kayak Cart part # MPG521-S on the other hand is more designed for soft terrain so it will be much better suited for sand. These are both universal kayak carries so as long as your kayak does not exceed the 150 lb/250 lb weight capacity you'll be fine.

  • Will Kayak Carrier Fit Thin Factory Crossbars on 2016 Ford Escape?
    Yes they are! Etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier #e98878 fits bars within 7/8" to 1-1/2" thickness. I'm a big fan of how they're designed to fit most factory crossbars. From what I know, the factory bars for the Ford Escapes since 2013 are the flat and thin style. Unless they have a different design for your bars, they are a confirmed fit for your 2016 Ford Escape. You also won't have the slight tilt that round bar owners sometimes experience when their carrier is unloaded, so that's great! If...
