The Rhino-Rack Nautic 581 is the next generation in rear loading kayak cradle design and technology. These carriers come complete with two front santoprene rubber pads designed to cushion your kayak and two rear spring loaded, felt covered pads for ease of rear mounting. Four tie down straps are also included, a longer set for securing the front and rear of the kayak to the vehicle and a padded set to secure your kayak to the cradles.
Two spring loaded, felt covered pads allow the kayak hull to slide smoothly from the rear to rest on the grippy front, contouring sling saddles.
Featuring a unique "secure core" hidden, lockable coverplate, you are now able to lock your cradles to your crossbars, minimizing the risk of theft.
Compatible with all current roof rack systems that feature a bar channel, these cradles are not only stylish and low profile, but simple to use.
