Loading and unloading – even on your own

Thule kayak roof racks give you a choice of smart loading/unloading features. The ultimate feature, lift-assist, allows you to load and unload a kayak by yourself with very little effort and without lifting your kayak onto the roof of your car. Giving you the freedom to head out for a paddle whenever you feel like it – and only on your terms.

Thule kayak racks

Push it to the limit. Day after day.

The Thule Test Center™ is where we make sure our kayak car racks are strong and durable enough to withstand everything the road and the elements have to offer. We’re not satisfied until they pass numerous crash tests, wear and tear simulations, not to mention extreme heat, cold, damp, sunlight and even harsh chemicals. That’s the only way we know that you’ll be satisfied and as safe as possible.
