Kayak Rack Pads or Roof Rack Pads
The Thule Surf Pads are the best way of protecting your whitewater kayak, sit on top kayak or stand up paddle board when strapping them to a car roof rack. These kayak rack pads come as a pair and will offer good levels of protection to your kayak, as when you tension the roof rack straps the kayak will bed into the pads. It will also stop the kayak from sliding from side to side or backwards and forwards.
Thule has designed these roof rack pads to be available in two main styles. The "wide" version is designed with the Thule Evo WingBar in mind. Whilst the "narrow" version is designed with the Thule SquareBar in mind. Each of the the different styles of kayak rack pads then has two different widths. There is a "medium" which measures 20" / 50.8cm wide, whilst the Large measures in at 30" / 76.2cm.
The Thule Surf Pads feature a high density foam padding system, this is then protected by a 600d nylon construction. The outer nylon is also UV resistant to ensure a long happy life. The rack pads are then secured to the roof rack cross bars by Velcro securing tabs. On the tops of each of Surf Pads there are non slip grips to keep the kayak secure.
The Playboater Rackguard is a great way of securing your kayak to your car. This kayak security cable is simple and easy to use. Playboater has designed the rack-guard to feature a 4m length of super strong steel cable. This is then protected by a plastic coating to protect the kayak, the car and also your hands.
