Product Details

BowDown Kayak Rack for Naked Roof (8004042) by Yakima®. A cradle type rack transports the kayak on its side, leaving space on your roof rack for other gear. It's the perfect type of rack for touring or recreational kayaks. The BowDown is Yakima's best cradle rack, carrying 1 boat securely, with top of the line HullGuard™ padding to protect your boat during transport, and an integrated ramp system that eases loading. It comes with built-in universal mounting hardware that fits round, square, and factory crossbars, and it's optimized for aero bars. Heavy-duty tie-down straps and bow/stern tie-downs are included, and when not in use the BowDown folds down so it's only 5" above the top of the crossbar. The BowDown is lockable with SKS (Same Key System) lock cores (sold separately) and it comes with instructions.
