by:

Needed something that would help me load our kayaks on top of my pickup. After much research went with the Telox XL coupled with the Malone Sea Wings. This combo is great. A lot less effort then lifting and sliding the yaks from the tailgate. Good investment.



by:

I got this to help load my kayaks. As of now me and wife were able to load with some difficulty, but we know we're getting older and help would be nice.
This is just that, a great help! It's well built and etrailer has the best price, and delivery was fast with no damage!



by:

This is an ingenious system for loading a kayak on top of a tall car such as our minivan. We were able to use it the first time out without difficulty. A nice alternative to the much more expensive Thule Hullivator. The required kayak carriers can be folded so we can still put the car in the garage, which would not have been possible with the Hullivator. . In addition, we were able to use it with our current roof rack. No need to buy a new one. The verdict is out on how durable it will be over time but we are pleased with the initial use of it.



by:

Little bit of a learning curve to figure out the best way to use the load assist.



by:

I think the Telos XL Load Assist works fine but the Kayak I purchased was 74 lbs and 34 inches wide so it just did not fit the Malone J-Style Kayak Carriers. I never used this product but it seems to be of very good quality.



by:

The quality is good, will have more to say when I use it. The service from etrailer is the best. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed.



by:

Ordered it on a Wednesday, was on my doorstep the next day.



by:

Telos XL loader came today, even tho my projected reception was in september. It makes it a lot easier to get my kayak on the roof of my Yukon, which probably will translate to more kayaking. Thanks for prompt service and good products!



by:

Easy to use



by:

Won't use until spring.



by:

Really well made - a bit heavy but confidence building for hoisting a 67 kayak.

  • Availability of the Regular Malone Load Assist for J-Style Kayak Carriers
    The Malone TelosXL Load Assist Module # MPG351XL actually replaced the regular Malone Load Assist (part MPG351) which is now discontinued. Since this is the case you will want to use the TelosXL.

  • How Many Sets of Malone Telos XL Load Assists Are Needed for Two Kayaks
    The Telos XL Load Assist for Malone Kayak Carriers part # MPG351XL would only require one set to load two kayaks since you would simply load one side using them and then just bring them with you to the other side to load your other kayak. They are not permanently attached to the kayak or carrier.

  • Will Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier Fit on OEM 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Roof Rack
    Yes, the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier # MPG114MD will fit the OEM crossbars on your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. One of the best features of the DownLoader is the ability to use the Telos XL Load Assist # MPG351XL with it. The Telos XL is actually paired with the DownLoader with part # MPG114MD-351XL. Since you are planning on using 2 of the DownLoader carriers you can use parts # MPG114MD-351XL and # MPG114MD to get 2 DownLoaders and 1 set of the load assist. Attached are some review videos...

  • Will the Malone Downloader Kayak Carrier Fit My Factory Crossbars on My 2014 Subaru Forester?
    The Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG114MD is designed to fit round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars so it should fit the aero style crossbars on your 2014 Subaru Forester. The Malone AirFlow2 crossbars are 3" wide x 1" tall and the DownLoader will fit this so you can use these dimensions as a reference. Plus, if you have the T-slots on your crossbars you can use the Fit Kit # MPG6604 and not have to worry about the clamps fitting at all. One of the...

  • Will 2 Sets of Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier Fit OEM Crossbars on a 2012 Toyota Sienna
    Installing 2 of the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier # MPG114MD on your 2012 Toyota Sienna is definitely possible. When in the upright position these measure 17" long but you'll be taking a bit of that length away because you will be able to put the end with the loading ramp over the ends of your crossbar system. Even though you can fit 2 sets of the DownLoader on your Sienna it would still be worth mapping out the distance and try holding your kayaks at an angle inside that length. If...

  • Kayak Carrier to Fit With Malone TelosXL Load Assist
    Yes, the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier and TelosXL Load Assist w/ Tie-Downs # MPG114MD-351XL kit includes 2 different kits; the TelosXL Load Assist # MPG351XL and the Kayak Rack # MPG114MD, so you can definitely get the kayak carrier separately.

  • What Kayak Carriers Can be Used with Malone Kayak Carrier Load Assist
    The Malone load assist part # MPG351XL that you referenced can only be used with the DownLoader part # MPG114MD. They can't be used with the Thule rack you have now so if you wanted to use it you'd need to replace the carriers as well.

  • Kayak Roof Rack for a 2009 Nissan Murano
    For your 2009 Nissan Murano LE, I recommend the Malone DownLoader, part # MPG114MD. You can use two of this rack on your roof if needed, and it includes features that are handy for loading the kayak. It includes everything you need in the box, including tie-downs for the kayak, and is compatible with your factory roof racks. Looking at the DownLoader, you'll notice a wedge shape on the front of the carrier. This ramp helps support some of the weight of the kayak as you go to load it,...

  • Can 2 Malone Downloader Kayak Carriers be Used on a 2015 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack
    I am confident you would be able to use 2 of the Malone DownLoader kayak carrier # MPG114MD on your 2015 Toyota Highlander. A lot does depend on just how wide the kayaks are but ultimately I do not foresee a problem. You would need just one of the Telos load assist # MPG351XL since it does not permanently install on the carriers.

  • Will two of the Malone Downloaders work on my 2015 Honda CRV with Being Able to use the Telos XL
    Yes the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG114MD will workout fine putting one on one side and one on the other. With this setup you will be able to use just one of the Telos XL Load Assist for Malone J-Style Kayak Carriers part # MPG351XL to load up both boats. Simply load one move the Telos to the other side repeat the same process. I've linked videos on each of these for you to check out.

  • What Is The Maximum Height Of The Malone Telos XL Load Assist
    The maximum height the Malone Telos XL Load Assist # MPG351XL is 98-1/4" fully extended, which is 8' 3/16" long, however it is likely that this will be shorter because this system will have a slant to to it, it won't be installed upright. If your bars are compatible, the Thule Hullavtor Pro # TH898 is a great option, and will easily allow you to easily haul your kayaks.

  • Load Assist to Help Load a Kayak on the Roof of a Toyota Prius with Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack
    The Malone Telos kayak loading system # MPG351XL attaches in a specific way that is only compatible with the Malone J-style kayak carriers but I do have an option for you. You can use the Rhino-Rack universal load assist # RR-RUSL. It is compatible with the Thule AeroBlade bars you have on your Prius. Basically you will rest one end of the kayak on the load assist so you only have to lift one side which will be about half the weight. I have linked a video showing how it works. For a similar...

  • How to Easily Load Two Kayaks on a 2012 Honda Odyssey
    In order to carry two kayaks on your 2012 Honda Odyssey, I recommend using the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG216 with the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier part # MPG114MD and the Malone TelosXL Load Assist Module part # MPG351XL. The AirFlow2 will allow you to mount both kayaks using the carrier with the load assist in addition to most cargo boxes from Yakima, Thule, Rhino Rack etc. The load assist bars are angled and have height adjustments so you do not need to worry about any overhang...

  • How to Carry Two Kayaks on a 2015 Nissan Rogue
    Absolutely! In order to carry two kayaks on the roof of your 2015 Nissan Rogue you will need a set of crossbars and set of kayak carriers. For the crossbars, I recommend using the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG215. These crossbars have an aero shape which will work to reduce wind drag and noise. They also have integrated t-slots and come with locks. Then for the kayak carriers, I recommend using two sets of the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier part # MPG114MD. These carriers come...

  • Will the Malone Downloader fit the Inno Aero Crossbars on My 2021 Mercedes GLA 250?
    Yes. If you have Inno aero crossbars like the # INXB123-130 installed on your 2021 Mercedes GLA 250, the Malone Downloader # MPG114MD will fit those crossbars as long as you install them in the top channels of the bars. For attaching the DownLoader to the top channels, you will need the T-slot hardware kit # MPG6604. The DownLoader also comes with the option to attach the Telos XL Load Assist # MPG351XL that attaches right onto the DownLoader. If you want the DownLoader that already comes...

  • Availability of Load-Assist Kayak Carrier to Use on Tall RV
    The extension legs for the Malone TelosXL Load Assist # MPG351XL really do need to make contact with the ground to allow for proper operation because as you mentioned, there aren't any other contact points (such as suction cups on the vehicle side) to provide support. Because of the height of your Ram Promaster I don't think there really is a load-assist option that will work well to assist with loading or unloading your kayaks. Any of them will either require some ground support or simply...

The Telos XL Load Assist for Malone Kayak Carriers # MPG351XL extends up to 98-1/4" (approx. 8.2') which is short of the height that you would need, but it sounds like you have a plan in place for that. I would caution that...

  • Kayak Carrier that is Easy to Load for 2015 Land Rover Evoque with Factory Roof Rack

  • Load Assisting Kayak Carrier for a 2016 Honda CR-V with Factory Roof Rack
    The Thule Hulavator kayak carrier # TH898 does indeed need 4 to 8 inches of free crossbar sticking out beyond the feet or, in this case, the side rails. Without that extra bit of bar the Hullavator arms that come down to load/unload the kayak would hit the vehicle. For your 2016 Honda CR-V with factory roof rack I recommend the Malone DownLoader # MPG114MD with the Telos load assist # MPG351XL. This will provide you with a load assist kayak carrier.

  • Can Thule Hullavator or Another Kayak Carrier be Installed on a 2017 Porsche Macan Factory Roof Rack
    The Thule Hullavator kayak carrier # TH898 does not fit factory roof rack crossbars because it requires that the bars stick out past the mounting foot 4 to 8 inches. Factory roof racks do not have this feature. Another option that you may like is the Malone DownLoader # MPG114MD with the Telos load assist # MPG351XL.

    The Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 will likely fit your Mopar roof rack on your 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Even if it doesn't fit the top channel it can still clamp around the bars. The carrier was designed to fit round, square, aero, elliptical, most factory crossbars, and most crossbars with top channels. But there needs to be 4 to 8 inches of crossbar sticking out beyond each of the feet or rail for it to function properly and not make contact with the vehicle. I have included...
