Product Details

The Yakima ShowDown is the first load-assist mount to handle both SUPs and kayaks. 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.
  • To load, the mount tilts down 26" from the roof rack and provides 30-45% weight assistance (depending on boat width) as it helps gently raise it to the top of the vehicle.
  • The ShowDown can securely handle 80 lbs allowing it to easily cradle a large kayak or two paddleboards.
  • Lightweight materials and construction don't eat up roof's carrying capacity and when not in use, it folds flat to reduce drag and noise.
  • Felt-covered cradles flex to conform to the hull for secure transport.
  • Universal mounting hardware fits most roof racks.
  • All tie-down straps included.
  • Locks to base rack with SKS Lock Cores for added security (sold separately).
