The Thule Slip Stream 887XT load assist kayak rack was designed for kayaks who are concerned about their kayak making contact with the rear of their car when loading the kayak onto their roof rack. Contact is eliminated when loading and unloading the kayak thanks to the adjustable sliding bars and the rear roller position.
The Slip Stream can support 75 lbs and kayaks up to 36" wide. It will reduce the weight of your kayak by 50% when loading or unloading.
The rear roller allows for the easiest loading of any kayak rack on the market, even with large SUVs, rear spoilers, and forward mounted roof racks. One person can load a kayak with little effort. The adjustable front and rear kayak saddles allow your kayak to be supported at the bulkheads regardless of roof rack bar location.
The Thule Slip Stream kayak carrier mounts directly to Thule racks, Yakima racks, and most factory installed roof racks.
Includes 2 heavy duty straps with buckle bumpers and 2 ratcheting bow & stern tie-down straps.
Modified, horizontal Thule Set to Go saddles conform to the front of the boat for maximum support.
Thule Hydro Glide saddles allow low friction loading for the rear of the boat.
Recommended minimum 24" crossbar spread.
Powder coated steel design for long, corrosion resistant product life.
2 quick-release mechanisms allow the Slipstream load assist kayak rack to slide and can be positioned on either side of the rack to provide the ultimate ease of use.
