Review from a similar SaddleUp Pro in Watersport Carriers


The kayak saddle works amazingly well with my set up. I would definitely purchase again or recommend to a friend. I use it often, and it works well even with our strong beach winds.


Comments
This product has held up well for me, and I still use them a lot. I appreciate their durability and longevity so far. I’m definitely pleased with their product.

Review from a similar SaddleUp Pro in Watersport Carriers


Excellent kayak carriers !! Strong and sturdy , they grab and hold extremely firm. You could easily get away with just strapping kayaks down at the crossbars and have absolutely no problems , esp. for short trips, although they supply and recommend the bow and stern tie downs also. The channel mount hardware fits the thule xsporter pro cross bars like a glove, and I imagine it would fit other crossbar T-track systems as well. Easily adjustable to fit different types of kayaks. Liked them so much that I ordered a second set after using them . A bit on the pricey side, but the "wow factor" of sheer functionality, performance and piece of mind that comes with using these makes it worth it. highly recommend these carriers.

Review from a similar SaddleUp Pro in Watersport Carriers


Good Product, works well BUT...... Instead of a felt like product that both Yakima and Thule use on the rear saddles. This Malone has a "sleeve" you slip on over rear saddle that after less than one year is already showing signs of developing a hole in the sleeve from wear. Of Note: this product is removed in the winter so only used about 6 to 7 months so far. I could probably come up with another solution for the sleeves but having the felt attached so they slide on nice would be helpful and practical- the rubber front saddles would hold well.

Ask the Experts about this Malone Watersport Carriers

  • Will Malone SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier Fit Square Crossbars
    Yes, the Malone SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG110MD will absolutely fit on square crossbars. The carrier is a universal fit that will clamp onto your square crossbars to give you an easy to use, and very strong carrier that can handle kayaks up to 75 lbs. The SaddleUp also comes with tie-downs so you don't have to purchase those separately, saving you an added expense. I have added links below to video reviews for you to check out as well of the Malone SaddleUp...

  • Comparing Malone SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier MPG1001 and MPG110MD
    Correct, the only difference between the Malone SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier part # MPG1001 and the Malone SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier part # MPG110MD is hardware. The former comes with t-bolts to mount in a channel and the latter comes with wrap around style clamps.

  • Malone Kayak Trailer to Carry Two 12 Foot Long Hobie Kayaks
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G with the SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier # MPG110MD is only designed to carry 1 kayak unless you additional carriers. Instead, I recommend using the MicroSport, part # MPG460G and adding 2 of the J-Pro, part # MPG116MD, to carry the kayaks. I've attached videos of both of them. If you need any equipment for your vehicle to be able to tow a trailer let me know the year, make, and model and I can make some recommendations for you.

  • J Style Recommendation For Malone Microsport XT Trailer
    I recommend the Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - J-Style - Fixed Arms - Side Loading, part # MPG117MD. J - style carriers offer more support and it is easier to carry boats with hulls of various shapes without having to readjust the rack. The j - style carrier also has a smaller footprint than other options. Since you will be using the kayak carrier for storage when not in use, its ability to fold is not an important feature. Nor is being able to attach a second boat to the...

  • Most Secure Way to Transport Large Kayak on 2016 Toyota 4Runner With Malone Roof Rack
    What you are looking for to secure your large kayak on your 2016 Toyota 4Runner is called a saddle-style kayak carrier. That type of carrier is the most secure way to secure a larger kayak because the kayak remains on its hull and not turned over, and we do have a great option. The Malone roof racks that fit your 2016 Toyota 4Runner with raised rails are the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 (58" crossbars) and # MPG215 (50" crossbars) so I assume one of these racks are what you have...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for Flush Mounted Rails on 2014 Lexus GX 460
    We can help you find the parts you're looking for, and really, if you're using a set of crossbars with T-slot mounting paired with accessories that mount in those channels the clearance from the roof won't be a factor. With that said, the Inno kit you mentioned would potentially work, but I do have something that has a bit taller towers to give you some extra clearance from the roof. I recommend using the Yakima Roof Rack for 2014 Lexus GX460 using parts # Y00425, # Y00145 and # Y28FR....

  • Best Kayak Trailer for 4 Kayaks
    I recommend using the Malone XtraLight Trailer # MPG526G-L because it allows you to carry all 4 kayaks where the MicroSport Trailer # MPG461GU is setup for 2 kayaks. The XtraLight trailer has a 275-lbs total capacity, so as long as your kayaks don't weigh more than that combined it would be a good choice to carry all your boats. The XtraLight is designed for use with a 2" hitch ball and comes with a 4 way trailer connector. If you need the added weight capacity for all 4 boats, the MicroSport...

  • Lift Assist for Heavy Kayak on 2019 Toyota Highlander with Factory Racks
    As a 5' 2" girl that has to load kayaks to test carriers here at etrailer, I understand the struggle. Here are my recommendations based off my experience. Your crossbars are set to fixed mounting points like the Rhino-Rack bars # RRRVP31 that fit your 2019 Toyota Highlander. Even if you could mount them to the rear points, I would not recommend the Yakima Showboat 66 # Y04073 anyways since it is rated for up to 80 lbs and even at that it has a maximum roller extension of 24" which might...

  • Can I Carry Two Kayaks Side by Side on My Roof Rack?
    The roof rack you're asking about is a Rhino-Rack System with parts # RB1250, # RRRLKHD, # DK376 which has 50" long crossbars. As for if you can carry two kayaks lying down side by side, it's unlikely, but depends on your kayaks. Kayak widths can range from 22" to 30". If you have saddle-style kayak carriers like the Malone SaddleUp Pro # MPG110MD and your kayaks are less than 24" in width, then you can set them up side by side. If your kayaks are too wide though, you can get two J-style...

  • Which Malone Xtralight Trailer with Kayak Carrier Can Store Up On it's End
    The Malone XtraLight Trailer for a Large Touring, Sit-On-Top, or Fishing Kayak # MPG526G-S that you referenced does have bumpers on the rear of it but it does not have the retractable tongue like you mentioned so instead you'd want the part # MPG460XT which I attached a picture of in the storage position. You'd then also need the kayak carriers part # MPG110MD which come with the other trailer you mentioned.

  • Mounting the Malone Saddle-Up Pro Channel Mounts to Factory Crossbars
    I have a solution for you, but, you can't attach the Malone Saddle Up Pro Channel Mount, part # MPG1001 to roof racks that don't have a "C-Channel" in the middle of the top of their bar. Instead, you'll want the Clamp-on variant of the Saddle Up Pro, part # MPG110MD, which will use a universal clamp to go around the bar rather than into the bar. I've included a video review of this carrier so you can get more familiar with its features.

  • Recommended Watersport Trailer for 14 Foot Kayak
    For your 14 foot Hobie Kayak, I recommend the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G w/SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier # MPG110MD. This trailer is overall 159 inches long and 78 inches wide. The kayak will fit well and rest in the cradles for stability and tie down functions. Your 14 foot kayak will fit well on this trailer and give you the turning clearance you need as well. It is designed for a maximum boat length of 20 feet. I've attached the installation details for you to assist.

  • Best Kayak Trailer and Carriers for Two or Four Kayaks
    For a kayak trailer, I'm a fan of Malone's trailers. I personally did a video on their Malone MegaSport Trailer with Saddle Style Carriers # MPG550-U since I'm a big fan of the saddle style carriers as well as their cargo boxes designed for fishing trips. Since it's such a heavy-duty kayak trailer (I jumped on the fenders to test them), it's a smooth ride and was also surprisingly easy to maneuver by hand. If you want an extra strong and sturdy kayak trailer, the MegaSport is the way to...

  • Can Malone Megasport 2 Tier Trailer Carry 3 Kayaks
    The Malone MegaSport 2 Tier Trailer with SaddleUp Pro Kayak Cradles # MPG550-TU that you referenced can carry 3 fishing kayaks like you have. The third one would most likely have to install on the upper bars with an additional kayak carrier part # MPG110MD.

  • Does Yakima ShowBoat Come with Saddle Carriers
    The Yakima ShowBoat 66 # Y04068 only comes with the bars and does not come with the saddle carriers like you mentioned in the picture. You'd have to add that on separately with a carrier like the Malone SaddleUp Pro part # MPG110MD.

  • Kayak Carrier Options For Rola Haul-Your-Might T3 Ladder Rack On A Toyota Tacoma
    Since you're using the Rola Haul-Your-Might T3 Truck Bed Ladder Rack # 59799 on your Toyota Tacoma, you have options. My recommendation is the Malone SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier # MPG110MD. This will clamp onto your Rola Rails and comes with all the tie downs you need! I like the saddle style carriers just because it really hugs your kayak and when tied down properly, your kayak will be nice and secure. I've included a video you should check out!

  • 2015 BMW 435i Covertible Hitch Recommendation for Towing Kayak Trailer
    For your 2015 BMW 435i convertible, the Yakima Rack and Roll # Y08106 is an excellent option and my personal preference. I believe it is made better for the application and it won't limit your speed as the tires are rated for the posted road speeds. You may however want to consider the alternative options of the Malone MicroSport Trailer 13 foot # MPG460G with saddle carrier # MPG110MD or the 11 foot long version with saddle carrier # MPG526G-S. These are trailers designed for a similar...

  • Best Kayak Carriers for Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailers
    When using a Malone Megasport Kayak Trailer like # MPG535, you need kayak carriers that can fit around the 1-1/4" square Malone crossbars without T-Tracks. It is possible that your Thule saddles are t-track mounted or its clamps are incompatible with square bars. Some Malone MegaSport trailer owners like to go with other Malone products.

    No. The Yakima Showboat # Y04068 does not come with crossbars included because while crossbars might be fairly straight forward the mounting towers for each individual vehicle are an extremely mixed bag; I'm not aware of any changes that have been made that now includes the cross bars with the Showboat though. It looks like your 2019 Honda CR-V might already have factory installed crossbars, so the only other components you would need are the kayak carriers. For kayak carriers the Showboat...

    You are correct that a 17' sea kayak or canoe can be mounted on the upper bars of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129, and still have room for a bike rack due to the 78" long upper crossbars. I recommend using the Yakima HighRoad Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount - Clamp On # Y02114 which will allow you to mount the bike to the upper crossbars. To keep the kayaks from resting directly on the lower bars of the # Y08129 I recommend using the Malone SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier...

You can use add-on Malone Saddle Up Pro Kayak Carrier # MPG110MD for an extra kayak to be mounted. I don't see any reason why you couldn't mount 2 kayaks on the top section being that the top bar is 58" wide and the add-on Malone Saddles only require a minimum of 24" crossbar spread.
