Product Overview

The Yakima Showdown boat rack is the first load-assist carrier to handle both SUPs and kayaks, makes loading and unloading heavy boats and boards a breeze. This lightweight mount tilts down more than two feet from the roof rack, takes on up to 45% of the boat’s weight, and helps to raise it up to the top of the vehicle. Once loaded it securely cradles your kayak or paddleboard for the ride. At only 21 lbs. it’s lightweight but burly enough to handle an 80 lbs. load. 

Easily load and unload kayaks and paddleboards at waist level at the side of the vehicle with the easy to use slide and tilt mechanism

80 lbs. boat and board capacity easily handles a large kayak or two boards

Universal mounting hardware fits Yakima racks, Rhino racks, Inno racks, Thule racks, and most factory roof racks
