        The Whispbar WB401's design is so revolutionary, nothing comes close in either form or function. If you're the type that likes to have the latest, most sophisticated products, you can't beat the WB401 for carrying a kayak. Its appearance alone will have people asking you what it is when it's not in use, and it looks so impressive you'll want to leave it on your roof rack all the time. But superlatives shouldn't be wasted on the exterior of this carrier because it performs just as great as it looks.

        Mounting to Whispbar Flush, Through, and Rail crossbars or other manufacturers' T-Slot crossbars couldn't be any simpler with Whispbar's exclusive QuickDock technology. Just open the QuickDock clamp levers and align the T-Bolts on the carrier with the T-Slots in the crossbars. Press down slightly to compress the T-Slot fill strip and close the QuickDock clamp levers to lock the carrier to the crossbars. Thanks to Whispbar's exclusive SmartFill technology, you can install T-slot mounted accessories without having to cut the fill strip. Just install the accessory in the slot over the fill strip, and when it's removed the strip will pop back up, maintaining the bar's smooth aerodynamic appearance. The integrated lock system will lock the carrier to the rack with the turn of a key. Adapters are also included to mount the WB401 to round and square crossbars.

        The WB401 features SmartFlex wings that enable you to load a kayak from the side or the rear of the vehicle. If side loading is your preference, leave the wings folded down for unencumbered access, but if loading your boat from the rear is more your style, you can raise the wings and take advantage of the integrated rollers that will help you ease your kayak into position. Once your boat is in place, the wings will adjust to the shape of your kayak, and the elastomer padding will cushion and protect your boat. Heavy-duty tie-down straps are supplied to secure the boat to the crossbars. These include padded buckles to protect surfaces from damage, with an easy quarter-turn connect and disconnect feature. Heavy-duty bow/stern tie-down ropes are supplied to secure your boat to the front and rear of your vehicle. These feature ratcheting pulleys to make it easy to apply just the right amount of tension, and clear plastic tubes to protect bumper surfaces from damage.

        Comprehensive, illustrated instructions are included with the Whispbar WB401, and it's backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
