These kayak saddles firmly grip your boat, keeping it stable, while gently cradling it to protect the hull. Mako Aero Saddles are compatible with SKS locks and include a heavy duty strap and bow/stern tie down.
Transport your kayak safely and easily with Yakima Mako Aero Saddles. These universal mount kayak saddles fit round, square, or factory crossbars and feature a contoured cradle to fit any kayak hull shape. Dynaflex™ grips provide a snug hold when the straps are tightened, while Mako pads offer extra protection for your boat's finish. A heavy duty strap with a padded buckle and a bow/stern tie down strap are included with the Mako Aero Saddles. These saddles are sold in a set of two, allowing you to pair them with a set of HullyRollers for easy loading, or pair them with another set of saddles to carry a kayak. (Two pairs of Mako Aero Saddles or a pair of Mako Aero Saddles and a pair of HullyRollers are required to carry one boat.) Yakima Mako Aero Saddles are SKS lock compatible (sold separately) and include a limited lifetime warranty.
