Thule Hydroglide 873

The HydroGlide is a classic best-selling saddle type kayak rack, whereby you load the kayak from the rear and slide it forward on the rear saddles, which have a special HydroGlide felt surface to allow easy loading and unloading. The front saddles are larger and feature rubber padding to assist in holding your kayak in place. With a 25kg load rating this carrier is suitable for more light-weight watercraft.

This simple yet well built and thought through carrier is sure to last for many years to come with Thule's excellent build quality. The package includes 2 tie down straps with padded buckle covers to ensure you don't damage your kayak's or vehicle's finish. 

We recommend using Thule's Quickdraw bow and stern tie downs in conjunction with this kayak carrier.

Fitting is very easy with T-track mounting design, which will fit most crossbars with T-tracks, for more information on installation please refer to the instructions below. Please note this item will NOT fit the new Thule wing bars EVO.

If you'd like to find out more about the HydroGlide please feel free to contact us anytime with your questions.

Note - This item is being stored at our secondary warehouse so you can order online without issue, however, if you prefer to pickup please advise us in advance so we can ensure it's available in our shop.

Thule Hydroglide 873 Kayak Carrier Customer Reviews

Simon Kean rated this item 5 out of 5      on Friday, 11 July 2014
Well thought out product that works well. Kayak glides well as it says and straps buckles well protected so don't scratch your car. Sliding the kayak from the back of the car on also protects your vehicle as don't need to lift over the side of the car. Well worth it if you have a car that deserves protection. Order was processed promptly and got the order the next day. Great service!
