The Yakima ShowDown 8004081 Load Assist Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboard Carrier is the first side loader for both kayaks and SUPs. The ShowDown's slide and tilt mechanism allows you to load your kayak or SUPs at waist height, making loading and unloading easier - especially after a day on the water. The 8004081 ShowDown includes flexible width adjustable felt covered kayak and SUP saddles that easily conform to the size and contours of your boat or boards. The ShowDown's flip out loading platform folds flat when not in use, providing a low profile for improved overhead clearance. The 8004081 ShowDown features tool-free installation with built-in universal mounting hardware, and may be locked to your crossbars for additional security (SKS Lock cores are sold separately). The ShowDown is compatible on most vehicles with Yakima, Thule, Rhino-Rack Malone and Inno after-market crossbars. Specific vehicle fits and crossbar lengths will be required for the ShowDown to have proper side clearance. You must have a minimum of 3.5" of crossbar protruding beyond the tower and the outboard clamp can be no farther than 4" from the tower. Heavy duty tie-down straps and bow stern tie-downs are included.
- Not compatible with factory crossbars, flush mounted crossbars, Yakima's BaseLine roof rack, or any other roof rack that mounts similar to the Yakima BaseLine rack.
