    What are the advantages of the upcoming SL version of GearTrac?

    Assuming cost is one of them, what is the anticipated savings of SL over the GT90? Everything I've been able to gather just says available early 2013. Do you have a more specific anticipated date of availability at this point?

    Thanks!

    Price is definitely an advantage. Other advantages are the lengths (up to 48" long) and flexibility. The track is tough but it is flexible. It can be "bent" to match the kayak's contour. Another advantage is the colors. They look cool :)

    We expect to start shipping in limited quantity by mid March.

    At this price point, I can justify buying a 24" or 48" SL-UD to install in my garage for storage of my GearTrac Accessories.

    DUDE! That is an awesome suggestion and I am, without a doubt, going to steal it! It's amazing how many different places I end up looking for rod holders, camera mounts and the like when getting ready for a trip. Now, whenever I get done with a piece of equipment, I can attach it to that piece of GearTrac that's on the wall. I wish that I'd thought of this!

    Mid-March is creeping up on us! :) Have you been able to tie down a more specific release schedule for the GT SL? :)

    How flexible is the new track going to be, enough to follow the hull of my kids sit in kayak?

    GearTrac SL availability.

    Any ETA on availability? Looking forward to doing a bunch of side projects with this product.

    We've had a few rounds of samples getting the sizing perfect. We're being pretty picky but the vendor has been great and the results will be worth it! Likely to have black sometime this month (April) and colors next month.

    FYI: The new polymer GearTracs can easily be cut with PVC shears with no deformation of the tracks.
