Non fade roof kayak rack pads are our preferred means of transporting kayaks. When kayaks are transported upside down they are very secure and more aerodynamic than transporting right side up. This will give you the best fuel economy.
Kayak rack pads are also the least expensive way of carrying a kayak on a roof top provided you already have a rack or factory cross bars. These are the highest quality available. They will last many years.
We have them in 3 lengths: 18″, 30″, and 36”, and 3 styles: Regular for standard bars like Thule, Yakima, etc. Aero for wider bars like most factory cross bars. Extreme for really wide bars like Nissan Xterra, etc.
