The Yakima ShowDown Kayak & SUP Rack

Yakima Kayak Rack

The first load-assist mount to both SUPs and kayaks, the ShowDown lifts 45% of your load's weight for you, making loading and unloading heavy boats and boards a breeze.


Features

  • Easily load and unload kayaks and boards at waist level at the side of the vehicle with the easy to use slide and tilt mechanism
  • 80 lb. boat and board capacity easily handles a large kayak or two boards
  • Lightweight materials and construction don’t eat up roof’s carrying capacity
  • Tilts down a lengthy 26" from roof rack height
  • Provides 30-45% weight assistance (depending on boat width)
  • Felt-covered cradles flex to conform to hull for secure transport
  • Folds down flat to reduce drag and noise when not in use
  • Locks to base rack with SKS Lock Cores for added security (sold separately)
  • Vehicle must have a 165lb rack weight rating
  • Can not be used with "clip", or "naked roof" roof racks
  • Minimum crossbar spread is 24"
  • You must have a minimum of 3.5" of crossbar protruding beyond the tower
  • ShowDown should be adjusted on the crossbars so that it clears the vehicle by 4" when deployed

This rack is perfect for my wife, she has a weak upper body but loves kayaking to maintain it. Trying to work above her head is next to impossible - having the dropping rack makes it so much easier to load and unload her kayak. Thank you!!

Be smart and measure your spacing between front & back and you will not have balance problems (alignment when lifting) as some others have noted. A touch of patience for "how" these function and you will LOVE HOW THEY WORK!

Absolutely. It's the law for a reason, it's the only safe way to carry your boats. Many of our canoe and kayak racks come with tie downs, if not you can buy them separately.
