The Yakima Mako Saddles cradle your kayak's hull with soft, grippy pads to keep it in place during transport. This half-set is the ideal companion to the HulleyRollers (sold separately), providing a firm support once your boat is loaded. Or combine two Mako Saddle half-sets for a reliable car top kayak carrier. Connects to round or square bars.
  • A pair of Yakima Mako Saddles supports one end of your boat. Combine that with a set of HullyRollers or get two sets of Makos to fully support your boat.
  • Soft, grippy saddle Dynaflex™ pads flex and hold your kayak in place without scratching it.
  • Saddle pads flex to fit any rigid hull shape.
  • A soft polyester pad with a self adhesive back attaches to the saddle protecting the finish on your boat.
  • Includes one 16' Yakima padded Heavy Duty Strap for tie-down and 1 Bow/Stern Tie Down.
  • Use the Yakima Fit Guide to determine what products work best for your particular vehicle.

            Comments about Yakima Mako Saddles:

            Just added the fourth boat to my kayak fleet. Previously had the mako for my plastic sea kayak and have used them for about 10 years. They are still going strong. Bought another set to carry my wooden kayak. Appreciated the felt pads to protect the finish. The "new" single strap system is a nice upgrade for my prior version. Looking forward to many years of use out if the new set.

                Fits my boat like a glove. After straps are secured tightly, my boat isn't going anywhere until I get to the water:) I really like that security.

                  I place an inflated Zodiac upside-down and take it off from the back of my SUV. The saddles fit perfectly.
