These are a great option for users who want to load their kayak from the side of the vehicle. 36kg weight carrying capacity. Extremely easy to install and remove

The Showdown lightweight mount tilts down more than two feet from the roof rack and takes on up to 45% of the boat's weight, then helps gently raise it up to the top of the vehicle. Once loaded it securely cradles your boat or boards for the ride.
