yakima new product

Yakima has now raised the bar -- we mean lowered the bar -- with the all new Yakima BowDown kayak rack. Includes all the features that make this style of kayak rack the most popular on the market today, yet is now engineered to allow the upright j-style kayak cradles to fold down completely flat when not in use solving any overhead clearance issues and also dramatically improving aerodynamics and fuel efficiency! Simply turn the oversized knob and fold the Yakima BowDown kayak rack flat when not in use. The included universal mounts allow this kayak carrier to fasten directly to not only Yakima bars but also all styles of Thule Racks load bars and virtually all factory rack cross bars too. Will lock to roof rack using a 2-pack of Yakima Locks (not included; see accessories below).

The Yakima Bow Down kayak rack is designed to also universally work with all shapes & sizes of kayaks - sea/ocean, touring, recreational & whitewater kayaks alike. Uniquely engineered with integrated ramp system to generously assist in loading a kayak. Combine that with the j-style design and the Yakima 4042 BowDown is very easy for just one person to load a kayak. Simply place one end of the kayak into one of the cradles, then allowing that cradle to do the heavy lifting simply place the other end of the kayak into the other cradle. The clever semi-vertical, j-cradle design also uses up less base rack crossbar space than other kayak racks that transport a kayak flat, providing plenty of room for another Yakima Bow Down or other gear carriers at the same time. Includes front and rear folding Yakima BowDown cradles. Includes all hardware, 2 heavy-duty straps with padded buckles and a pair of Yakima Bow/Stern ratcheting tie-down straps for securing kayak front and rear during travel.
