Pad your crossbars with Yakima CrossBar Pads to keep your boat and other cargo from resting directly on the bars. These 20" wide pads are soft yet durable, with a nylon shell to protect the inner foam from abrasion and exposure.
  • 20" wide, protect a wide area of the bar.
  • Nylon covers protect the foam and tie directly to round or square crossbars.
  • Sold in pairs for protection under one boat.

      Yes. I use them on my F250 Yak rack all the time and find them perfect for my composite and skin-on-frame kayaks. The nice thing is that they roll when sliding kayaks on and off, rather than foam blocks which tend to pop off the bars.

      We use them for Carbon/Nomex racing shells. Just be sure not to over tighten the straps.

      Hi Gene,
      This is Phil. I actually returned these pads. I was going to use them on my
      rack (Yakima) for my standup paddleboards. They did not have enough width
      or padding to safely protect my boards. Instead, I bought some pipe
      insulation from the hardware store; they work well. Funnoodles (the
      swimming pool toy) work even better.
      For a composite kayak (I have a composite carbon fiber-kelar boat myself),
      I stick to a rack designed for kayaks. I would be worried that any kind of
      rack pads would not suffice to carry a kayak on a vehicle; if you used rack
      pads for a kayak, you would need--I think--to flip the kayak upside down so
      that the deck was resting on the pads. I would be worried about damaging my
      boat.
      NRS has some fantastic kayak racks and they often go on sale.
      I hoped this helped. Let me know if you have questions.

      A:

      Gene, these pads will provide some protection for your boat. However, rack components like the Mako Saddles, Item # 62535.01, provide better protection for more fragile, and expensive, composite boats by cradling the hull over a much wider area.
