Yakima Showdown Kayak Rack

The new rack mounted system offers amazing capacity in a load assist boat mounting, with up to 80lb being handled with ease. With facilities for either one kayak, or up to two boards.  The mount tilts down to  lower the loading point two full feet below the roof rack, making it easy to haul your kayak or SUP, the mechanism takes up to 45% of the weight for you and then assists to lift the boat or board(s) onto the rack. If you've ever transported heavier kayaks on roof racks you'll appreciate the help this system offers.

Another feature we like is the felt lined cradles to protect the hull of your boards or boat, a small thing but makes a big difference to using it with confidence. The mounting also folds flat when it's not in use so as to minimize the drag and wind noise it may generate, again, it's a nice little extra feature to have. 

The system weighs only 21lbs all in all, so it's easy to fit and handle in itself, this also allows a lower impact on the total roof carrying capacity for your vehicle. To make life easier again, it has universal mounting hardware so it'll fit onto most roof rack manufacturer's products. 

For security these mountings have the option of being lockable with SKS (single key system) locks that can be matched to your rack and other accessories. So you can enjoy paddling or surfing knowing that no-one is going to steal your carrier while you're on the water.

To seal the deal Yakima is also including all necessary tie down straps with the system. Although tie down straps are easy to find, including them for free is still a nice gesture from Yakima to their customers and theirs are specifically designed for this system.

This is a mounting full of great features that comes in at medium price, it's not the cheapest but it's also not the most expensive. In our view it represents great value, with features found only in higher end systems at a lower price point.

Yakima ShowDown 8004081 Customer Reviews

Beverly rated this item 5 out of 5      on Sunday, 29 October 2017
I originally wanted the thule hullavater but i have factory roof racks and it wouldn't fit onto them. I rang roof rack store and they told me about the Showdown which they guaranteed would fit my bars. I ordered on the Sunday night and it turned up on Monday! They were right and it was extremely easy to fit, I tried it for the first time last Saturday and I love it!
