Outdoor recreation, especially watersports, can be expensive. Kayaks aren’t cheap, and besides the boat there’s a lot of other equipment to buy, so you’ve got to be smart with your money and get the most value for the buck. And when it comes to a great value, you can’t do better than the SportRack Kayak Saddle Carrier. It provides easy installation and loading, and safe and secure transportation for your kayak, at a great price, so you can get out on the water and have fun without having to empty your wallet. And besides being a great value, the Kayak Saddle Carrier also has the versatility to accommodate all types of kayaks and mount to most kinds of rack systems.
The U-bolts and knobs mounting system enables the 4 saddles to be mounted to most factory and aftermarket crossbars up to 3.5” in diameter, quickly and easily, without the need for tools. Once the saddles are installed the kayak can be easily loaded by placing one end of the kayak onto the rear saddles, and sliding the kayak forward until it’s equally supported on all 4 saddles. Each saddle is custom designed to conform to the most popular hull shapes, and has integrated rubber pads to protect the hull and help hold the boat in place for transport. When the boat is in place, the 2 included tie-down straps with cam buckles are used to secure the kayak to the crossbars. The 2 ropes with galvanized bumper hooks are used to secure the bow and stern to the front and rear of the vehicle.
The Kayak Saddle Carrier comes with instructions detailing the installation of the saddles and the kayak. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer’s defects in materials or workmanship.
