There are essentially only 3 safe or recommended ways to transport
kayaks on the roof of any vehicle. 


Vertical Kayak Stacker Systems

Vertical Kayak Stacker system

Kayak Stackers are basically vertical posts mounted in the center
of your car roof rack.  Kayaks are turned completely on their sides, and
are then lashed together with anywhere from 1 to 2 kayaks on each side
of the Kayak Stacker mast.   While this type of kayak carrier offers the
least amount of support and stability, they are generally used for
transporting multiple kayaks because obviously kayaks take up much
less room when turned upright on their sides.  And because only one
Kayak Stacker is required for multiple kayaks, they are also a very economical option for carrying your kayaks.


J - Style Kayak Racks


An upright Kayak J-Style carrier rack

 Although sometimes said to resemble moose antlers, J - Style Kayak Racks are named after their shape as they basically look like a large letter "J".
The J- Style Kayak Carriers do a much better job of cradling, and stabilizing kayaks during transport than Kayak Stackers.  They also generally offer
much better padding to protect your kayak from the bumps in the road.
Unlike the Kayak Stacker systems, however, one set of J-Style Kayak racks
is required for each kayak that you wish to carry, so the cost of using
these systems is higher.  Also, because J-Style Kayak rack systems cradle
kayaks at about a 45 degree angle, they tend to take up more room on
the roof of your vehicle and it is rare for most vehicle roof racks to
accommodate more than 2 kayaks using J-Style carriers.


Horizontal Kayak Saddles


Horizontal Kayak Saddles


Horizontal Kayak Saddle Systems are by far the safest and most
secure way to transport your kayaks and the reason for that is simple.
Kayak saddles carry kayaks upright, the way that they ride in the water,
and support the kayak from underneath on its hull where kayaks are structurally designed to support their own weight.

Kayak Saddles provide a lower profile for transportation and offer
greater support and stability to protect your kayak during travel.
Kayaks are, however, widest when transported horizontally, and as
such take up much more room on a vehicle roof rack than the J-Style
racks or the Kayak Stackers.  As a result, many vehicle roof rack systems
can only accommodate 1 - 2 kayak saddle systems maximum.


Kayak Roller Systems


Loading a kayak on the roof of a vehicle (especially on tall vans or SUVs)
can certainly be challenging if not extremely difficult, and unfortunately
that task doesn't get any easier with age.

Kayak roller load assist systems can greatly reduce the amount of
physical force or effort that is required to lift and load a kayak and
there are systems available that can work on almost any car, truck,
wagon, van or SUV.

Proline Racks carries several different types of kayak roller systems
from top brands such as Thule, Yakima, and Roller Loader.

Let our friendly and knowledgeable staff help you find the right
kayak roller system to fit your needs.
