Yakima ShowDown Kayak Carrier #8004081
Yakima ShowDown Kayak Carrier #8004081, the first load-assist mount to handle both SUPs and kayaks, makes loading and unloading heavy boats and boards a breeze. The Yakima ShowDown Kayak Carrier can easily load and unload kayaks and boards at waist level at the side of the vehicle with the easy to use slide and tilt mechanism. It provides 30-45% weight assistance (depending on boat width).The lightweight mount tilts down more than two feet from the roof rack, takes on up to 45% of the boat’s weight, then helps gently raise it up to the top of the vehicle. Once loaded it securely cradles your boat or boards for the ride. At only 9.5 kg it’s super lightweight but built burly enough to wrangle a 36 kg load.
Felt-covered cradles flex to conform to hull for secure transport. This Yakima ShowDown Kayak mount can be folded down flat to reduce drag and noise when not in use.
