Consumer research has identified rooftop transport as an obstacle to more people getting involved in the kayaking hobby, because of the physical demands required to lift the kayak to the roof. The Thule Slipstream is an innovative solution to this problem. The Slipstream enables one person to easily load and unload a kayak onto the roof of a vehicle. It features a roller that extends out beyond the back of the vehicle where it can support up to 75 lbs. and 50% of the kayak's weight, making loading and unloading virtually effortless.

The Slipstream can accommodate kayaks up to 36" wide and 75 lbs. Its pivoting saddles automatically conform to nearly every kayak shape and size, and the 4 touchpoints of padded support conform to the hull, for safe, secure and protected transport. The double-coated, corrosion resistant steel construction of the Slipstream ensure long-term durability, so you can expect many years of service. All necessary straps are included for safe transport. The Slipstream can carry one kayak, but up to 2 carriers can be installed per vehicle. It fits Thule rack systems, round bars, and most factory racks.

The Slipstream Kayak Rack comes with everything necessary for installation, including detailed instructions. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.
