Yakima's world first tilting and load assisting kayak and board mounting solution makes it easier than ever to hall kayaks stand-up paddleboards or surfboards. The new rack mounted system offers amazing capacity in a load assist boat mounting with up to 80lb being handled with ease. With facilities for either one kayak or up to two boards. The mount tilts down to lower the loading point two full feet below the roof rack making it easy to haul your kayak or SUP the mechanism takes up to 45% of the weight for you and then assists to lift the boat or board(s) onto the rack. If you've ever transported heavier kayaks on roof racks you'll appreciate the help this system offers.
Another feature we like is the felt lined cradles to protect the hull of your boards or boat a small thing but makes a big difference to using it with confidence. The mounting also folds flat when it's not in use so as to minimize the drag and wind noise it may generate again it's a nice little extra feature to have.
The system weighs only 21lbs all in all so it's easy to fit and handle in itself this also allows a lower impact on the total roof carrying capacity for your vehicle. To make life easier again it has universal mounting hardware so it'll fit onto most roof rack manufacturer's products.
For security these mountings have the option of being lockable with that can be matched to your rack and other accessories. So you can enjoy paddling or surfing knowing that no-one is going to steal your carrier while you're on the water. To seal the deal Yakima is also including all necessary tie down straps with the system. Although tie down straps are easy to find including them for free is still a nice gesture from Yakima to their customers.
This is a mounting full of great features that comes in at medium price it's not the cheapest but it's also not the most expensive. In our view it represents great value with features found only in higher end systems at a lower price point.
