|Portage Canoe Wheels
Canoeing.com Definition: Sturdy, yet lightweight and portable, 2- or 4-wheel canoe wheels attach to the end or middle of the canoe. Mid-canoe attachments bear more weight, leaving portagers to maintain balance. End-attachments require the portager to bear more weight but can make loading onto the car easier. Canoe wheels are most commonly used to transport a canoe from the car to the water, but they can be used for portaging. Efficient attachments provide quick transitions at portage landings and easier handling over portages. Large or inflatable wheels provide better handling over uneven and rough terrain. Look for systems that stow easily in the canoe while paddling.
