When you're by yourself and hoisting your kayak onto the roof of your SUV, wouldn't it be nice to have something to rest the end of the boat on to keep from damaging your vehicle, maybe a set of rollers that would not only support the boat but also assist with loading by guiding it into place on the saddles. The always responsive folks at Thule heard you and the Roll Model Kayak Rack is the result. The Roll Model is equipped with a set of rollers behind the rear saddles to make loading and unloading a kayak by one person as easy as can be. The integrated rollers keep the boat from contacting the vehicle, to avoid potential damage, and as you push the boat onto the roof, they center and guide the kayak onto the saddles.
The Hydro-Glide rear saddles are felt lined to let the kayak slide along and they're shaped to help guide the kayak into position. The Set-to-Go front saddles grip the surface of the hull once it's in place. They're adjustable so the saddles conform to the shape of the hull. The Roll Model gives your kayak 4 touchpoints of padded support. Able to accommodate a kayak up to 36" wide and 75 lbs. the Roll Model comes with all the necessary straps to secure your kayak. The Roll Model can carry one kayak, but up to 2 carriers can be installed per vehicle. It fits Thule square bar rack systems only.
The Roll Model 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.219.95Brand: Thule Part Number: 884 UPC: 091021884175

Wish I had gotten the longer unit. Now my crossbars are too close together to fit the canoe. Haven't used the unit yet. But it seems to ride on the car nicely. The lid feels somewhat flimsy.

I put these on my 2014 Forester. They fit well, and the installation was easy. When you buy a pair, they are sold as a front and rear pair, but the difference is not distinguishable and nothing on the package or in the enclosed instructions made note of this. I haven't noticed any increased noise, and I often drive with the roof open, so I think the aeroblade is a smart design. As far as roof racks go, they look nice and look like they will last a long time.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
