If you're looking for a safe, secure way to transport your kayak that won't take up a lot of room on your roof rack, will be unobtrusive when not in use, and will pamper your kayak in the process, look no further than the Yakima BowDown Kayak Rack. The BowDown features super strong SteelCore construction, with steel tubes for superior strength and support. It holds your kayak on its side, leaving plenty of crossbar space for other gear. The integrated ramp system simplifies loading, and once in place your kayak's hull will be gently cradled in top of the line HullGuard padding, with EVA foam for support and protection. When not in use, the BowDown folds down until it's height is just 5" above the level of the crossbar, for better aerodynamics and more roof clearance for garaging.
The BowDown's built-in universal clamps are designed to make installation fast and easy on any type crossbar without tools, including round, square, factory, and aero. The design is optimized for aero bars. You get everything you need to secure your boat including heavy-duty tie-downs for attachment to the roof rack, and bow/stern tie-downs to secure the boat to the front and rear of your vehicle. All tie-downs have padded buckles to prevent damage to the boat and your vehicle.
SKS lock cores (not included) can be installed in the built-in crossbar mounts to deter theft. Comprehensive, illustrated installation and user instructions are included, and the BowDown is covered by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.160.65
