The portage just got smoother. Seattle Sports has given its line of canoe, kayak and SUP portage carts a makeover. Four models (Center, End, SUP, and Scupper) now sport black matte paint with cobalt blue accents. More importantly, they roll better. Seattle Sports now specs flat-free tires on its Nemo Extremo, Scupper Swift, Original End, SUP SoulMite and ATC carts. The solid urethane treads dampen vibration and roll over bumpy terrain with less effort, so no matter how long or rough the portage trail, the carry will be that much smoother.
