Yakima Mako Aero Saddles Reviews


Sea Kayaker 69rated this item 5 out of 5 on 1/16/2011:

Bought these a few years ago for transporting my 18 foot sea kayak. These racks are very secure - I rarely use the nose and tail tie downs - comform to my hull exeptionally well, and offer a bit of cushion to my boat on the rough roads. I highly recommend these for transport. They are a little pricey in that you have to buy 2 sets, but well worth the investment.

If you have factory crossbars, then the Mako Aero Saddles will fit.

Hey Jeff,

They should work just fine! Make sure you get two sets if you don't have any other saddles (this product Includes 2 Saddles, one bow/stern tie-down strap and one heavy duty strap for complete kayak stability.) Feel free to call with any further questions.
