 Product Description and Specs

The convenience of a stacker without having to remove it in the off season. The Yakima Bowdown Kayak Carrier carries one boat on padded "J" cradles and then folds down to provide a clean silhouette.

• The Bowdown carries one boat on its side, on top of the vehicle
• When you're not using it, fold it down to keep a nice clean look to vehicle and reduce wind whistle
• Padded hull guards prevent damage to your boat
• Fits round, square, and most factory crossbars out of the box
• Locks to crossbar using SKS locking system (lock cores sold separately)

This is a solid kayak carrier. I would have given this 5 stars but this rack whistles like a tea kettle over 40 mph. I'm still trying to find the source of the whistle so I can modify. So for now turn up the radio and go kayaking!

Love and hate it! Very nice, fat, padded uprights but the up and down mechanism is terrible. I have two sets, both of which Ive replaced twice Yakima does it for free . Theyre good for about 40 trips before the cog wears out or the tightening knob no longer tightens. It has been my annual off season job; to send back the worn out set to Yakima for replacement. If you are not frequent kayaker, then this is probably a good product for you; but this sending a set back every year or so is getting old.

Absolutely hate these bow downs. Very difficult to tighten enough on round roof bars so the unit does not rotate if you have to slide the boat a few inches front or rear. I give them 2 stars because they are quality manufacture and materials but they do not work as I had hoped. The wind noise is considerable in the down position. Would sell them on e bay most likely.
