Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Nautic Roof Kayak Carrier Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Rhino Rack Nautic rooftop kayak carrier, part number RR570. The Rhino Rack Nautic is a rooftop kayak carrier that carries one kayak hull-side down on your roof rack crossbars. A really neat feature of this kayak rack is the easy loading and unloading process due to the pivoting saddles. The saddles here pivot to accommodate different hull styles and sizes and the actual saddle itself is made of a glass-reinforced nylon for added strength and durability. The saddles also have a soft rubber pad here that flexes to accommodate different hull styles and sizes as well. It provides a nice grip for your kayak when it's in place and the rubber is not going to scratch up the surface of your kayak.

This rack will work on round, square, arrow, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. Now we'll show you how it assembles onto the roof rack crossbars. We'll basically just place the top bracket onto the top of our bar, take the bracket to go around the underside of the bar, and then we'll take the included bolt and washer to go down though the hole of the top bracket down through the hole in the bottom bracket. Then we'll just use the included Allen tool to tighten it down. We'll then do the same exact process for the hole of the other side of the bracket. A neat thing about the hardware for this kayak rack is if you can see that on the top of the bolt there is a little tab that sticks out and then the included Allen wrench has a hole in the bottom. Basically the only way that someone can remove this from the rack is if they have this Allen wrench.

I'm going to keep this loose just so I can position it and maneuver it on the bar. Then I'm ready to install the other part. Now we'll just position them to fit the hole of our kayak. Then we'll tighten them down. Then we'll just repeat the same installation process for the back pair of cradles. You just want to make sure that they're in line with the front pair as well. Now with all four of our saddles secure we'll go ahead and load up a kayak and then show you how to secure it.

The first thing we need to do is with the saddles already angled towards the side of the vehicle, I'm going to place the kayak up on its side, and then I'm going to simply roll the kayak over and allow those pivoting cradles to hold the kayak until it rests on the other saddles. Then I can go ahead and reposition it. With our kayak in place we'll then take these straps to go over the kayak, around the underside of our crossbar, and then back over the kayak. The straps that are used to secure the kayak to the actual bars are the ones that have this nice pad and the cambuckle is coated on the net nylon cover. This is just going to help ensure that your kayak is protected from any scratches or abrasions. We'll bring the strap around and come up to the cambuckle.

We'll insert the end of the strap into the buckle and pull it tight. Then just make sure that the buckle is covered up with that nylon protector so our kayak is protected. Just pull it tight. Then I'll repeat the same process for the back. Now we're ready to use the bow and stern tie-down straps to secure the bow and stern of our kayak. The bow and stern tie-down straps are the longer ones that are rolled up like this. Today we'll be using the quick loops you can see here because this vehicle does not have any good, solid steel anchor points to secure the bow and stern of the kayak to. We'll open up the rear hatch, place it in the cargo area, and shut the door. This will be our anchor point. Then we'll take the strap, go up, insert the end of the buckle into the strap, go back down, insert the end into the quick loop, and then pull it tight. Then we'll go into the cambuckle and tighten it down. Then I'm just going to secure the excess strap. Then we'll repeat the same process at the front. Now with our kayak all loaded up we'll go ahead and take it out on the road and show you how it looks. That will complete today's review of the Rhino Rack Nautic rooftop kayak carrier, part number RR570. .

I've owned this product for a year now,and originally bought it for an okt13,and just recently upgraded to a hobie outback. I've gotten a lot of uses out of this so far and have done a ton of kayaking.most of my trips I travel long distance from Pittsburgh to Virginia Beach.so far I must say I love these types of straddles! Very nice support and I like the fact that they allow you to mount your kayak upright,instead of upside down on the bar which results in scratching up the gunnels.definitley recommend this product! 378768

After attempting to mount the individual rack pieces using the “burglar proof” button head screws with the pin in the recess and the short hex wrench with the hollowed out end I discovered that no real burglar would want the rack but would rather have the kayak so the first thing I did after spending 10 minutes trying to insert the hex into the button head screws with the pin inside the recess and attempting to turn the bolts and continually being obstructed by the support pieces and the paint interference on the bolt heads with trying to get the wrench into the recess I knew it was going to be a long frustrating process so I threw them away and purchased new button head stainless steel bolts and a 4mm extended handle hex wrench to turn them. Smartest thing I ever did. You not only have to mount the rack initially but then you have to put the kayak on the roof and remount all pieces again to fit your boat. All kayaks are different to one degree or another. Having to move the individual support and retighten them with the boat on the rack is even more difficult to do than the initial mounting with these “burglar proof” bolts and hex wrench and you will be happy you threw them away before you started the entire process. Try it for yourself at first and then go get the alternate ones. Worth the little investment and stainless steel will not rust away when you want to remove the rack system in the future. Once the rack is on your vehicle and kayak in rack the tie downs supplied are very good quality. Make sure you use the recommended tie down locations and directions, two kayak body ties and ties at front and rear. Due to numerous kayak hull designs it would be nice to have each support pod have a horizontal swivel built into it so it readily conforms to the hull shape. The overall quality of the system should be the last rack you will have to purchase. I only had issues with the supplied bolts and hex wrench. I gave this rack system a three star because of the bolts and hex tool and the individual pods not swiveling and I haven't at this point transported the kayak anywhere so I am waiting to see how it handles long trips with wind loads and constant loading and unloading performances. 529476

These kayak carrier saddles cup the bottom of my kayak. They are easy to install and clamp to the rails firmly. The tie downs that are included to secure kayak to the rails have no metal to scratch vehicle or kayak. The bow and stern tie downs are plenty long to give you options as to where to attach to vehicle. 213436

Still love how these carriers cup and mold to the bottom of my kayak. Once secure, kayak stays put.

These racks were super easy to assemble! My only complaint was that the measurements were off for my body style. Instructions had specs and measurements for a 2015 fit, but I have a 2017 Fit EX. This was fixable, I just added 2cm to each side when installing the crossbars to the legs, and it fit my roof perfectly. 387677

by:

Vendor was excellent in providing suggestions to carry our tandem 10' kayak on Inno racks. The Rhino-Rack RR570 solve the problem by creating a significantly easier way. Instead of flipping the boat over so flat side was down this cradles the sides with flexibility to have it grab the shape of the hull but yet does not bind when pushing the kayak onto them or unloading it. Slides pretty easy. Installation was great and these cradle arms are sturdy. Good Aussie product. A couple of suggestions: Get rid of that cheap hex head wrench for either one that really fits the bolt head (made a 5 minute job 30 minutes) or go to a phillips head. Terrible tool. Second, bolts could be threaded up the shaft a bit more for racks that like the Inno. 538933

The carrier generally works well and I like that you can flip the carrier toward you if putting the kayak up from the side of the vehicle and then flip kayak and carrier to the mounted position. It's more difficult to mount the kayak from the rear of the vehicle. The carrier's rubber surface does not allow an easy slide up from rear to front, at least not for a fiberglass/gel coat hull. I actually installed two felt pads on the rear carrier to allow me to slide the kayak forward and this seems to work. Otherwise the carrier works well. 599979

Everything was excellent from start to finish. Geoffrey was very helpful on the phone and helped guide me in the selection of the appropriate kayak accessory for my specific crossbars. The order came quickly (about 4 days) and it was relatively easy to attach to my crossbars. I transported my kayak easily and without drama. The product is high quality and looks like it will be durable and have be useful for a long time. 558880

The rack fits my Honda Fit. Similar to other reviewers, it Is a tight fit and the weatherstripping deforms and you can feel a very small amount of tension on the doors, small enough that I'm not concerned. Ordering was a breeze, and the price of the rack was lower than I could get it from the manufacturer, the helpline also answered my question quickly. I'm looking forward to giving it a test run with my kayak. 283054

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Nautic in Watersport Carriers


The Rhino Rack cradles, straps and hardware are all good quality and I have no complaints. The only issue I have, and the reason for only a 4 star rating, is the supplied M6 x 40mm Security Head screws are too long for the factory cross bars on my roof rack. When I first installed the cradles if I had tightened the screws all the way, the ends would have dug into the roof and paint, even before I added the weight of the kayak. In checking, I can purchase some M6 x 25mm Security Head screws from Amazon, but frankly part of me feels that for what I’ve already paid for this kit I shouldn’t have to spend another $15 for the correct length screws, plus the package has 20 screws and I only need 8. However, it appears that is exactly what I will have to do. At least they will be stainless steel, rather than the cheaper material the current screws are. Plus I will have extras for when/if the head strips out. I would suggest Rhino Rack consider included in their kit two sets of screws to meet this need. Keep the length they have, Judy add a set of 25mm. I’m still happy with the purchase but not 100%. I do like how the kayak slides easily on the rear felt lined cradles. Plus Rhino Rack includes every tie down strap that you will need, e.g. one each for the bow and stern in addition to two straps intended to secure the kayak directly to the roof rack cross bars. I would highly suggest you get in the habit of using all four straps, you really don’t need to have a gust of wind lifting the nose and tearing the roof rack off your vehicle. Can happen! My brother-in-law lost his roof rack exactly in this manner. So happy yakking and safe travels down the road. By the way I have paired these cradles with the Rhino Rack RTL002 T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist and Support Bar for 2” Hitches also purchased from eTrailer. I’ve attached some photos showing my first and second attempts to solve my dilemma. I need to order the replacement screws. First attempt after dark was a large flat washer, then the next day I added some nuts under the large washer. NOTE: Photos may post in reverse order. 517305

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Nautic in Watersport Carriers


Two sets just arrived and I just opened the box. Got here much earlier than I expected and looks exactly like what I wanted. I'll be using these to transport 2 Kayaks from Pennsylvania to Florida for the month of February. I'll update this post on how well they worked when I get back. [UPDATE 03/02/17] Sent you a review upon receipt of the Rino Racks and promised a follow up after I used them. Just got back from a vacation in Florida, so here goes... Took two recreational kayaks from Pennsylvania to Florida and back using the Rino Racks on Rage crossbars. The factory crossbars were not wide enough to carry two kayaks side-by-side. Note that I have used "J" racks but carrying the boats flat is much better in the wind, is easier to load and lets me load "in" the garage. The Rino Racks worked really well. The racks need to be tightened down hard to keep from sliding on the crossbar. The bolts are rather unique using an allen slot with a hole in the center. A wrench with a corresponding hole is provided. I didn't use the straps that were included but they looked really sturdy. Also recommend rope front and rear tie downs instead of straps - the straps hum unless you twist them. The racks are a good value and I would recommend them. Dave 324924

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Nautic in Watersport Carriers


While I thought screwing in the bolts with the allen key were a PIA as stated on reviews that I read (surely something better can be devised!) I love the end product. I am 68 and have a carbon lite kayak that weighs about 40 lbs. I chose the use a rear mounting since lifting into a J-Channel is out of the question. I put a rubber backed rug on the back of my SUV and put the front of the kayak on that and then go to the back and lift and slide. The straps are easy to secure and I like the little velcro to hold on to the excess. Even though the directions pictured the mounts over the driver's side, I chose to put the mounts over the passenger side, that way The strap is not in my view and if I need to stop to adjust something, I am not on the road side....safety!!!! I also got the anchor strap that goes under the front hood since I don't have a great place in the front of the SUV to hook on to. 652017

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Nautic in Watersport Carriers


We purchased two sets of these for securing our kayaks to our truck rack so we could tow our travel trailer, fill the truck bed with bikes and still bring the kayaks. They work well once you get them positioned correctly - photo shows one kayak with carriers in place and second kayak waiting for carriers. Our challenge with install is that the kayaks are tow different lengths so carriers are not set the same way. Getting them loaded and unloaded is a two person job, but strapping down is easy and very secure. 625613

  • Trailer Recommendation to Carry 3 Heavy Kayaks
  • I looked up the kayaks that you have and estimated that at the most the kayaks together could weigh as much as 328 pounds. This is within the capacity of many trailers we have including the Malone MicroSport # MPG460G. The capacity does not include the weight of the trailer itself since the trailer is supporting itself at the wheels. But the crossbars on the MicroSport are only 65 inches long which seems like a lot but when you start to load kayaks on it you will soon realize that it...

Saddle mounts directly transfer the weight to the bars, so they are a lot easier for fitting heavier kayaks. I have two saddle-style recommendations for you that include locking features and can support the weight of your kayak. The first is the Inno Locker, part # INA446.

Due to the clamp-on style of the Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier # S65145 (see photo), it will not fit crossbars that are wider than 2-1/2" so it will not work for you, though you will want to measure your bars to confirm.

  • Recommended Roof Rack And Kayak Carrier For 2017 Ford Escape With Raised Side Rails
  • We do offer roof racks that can work with the raised side rails on your 2017 Escape. All of the roof racks we have will have a higher weight capacity than the 45-lbs you said you have on your roof rack. You will want to make sure the 45-lbs is due to the roof rack and not to the construction of the roof itself. You do not want to exceed the roof weight capacity of your new vehicle. If you have a higher roof capacity I recommend a rood rack like the Rhino-Rack Vortex roof rack. This...

  • Saddle Style Kayak Carrier That Fits 1-3/4" Diameter Round Bars
  • I spoke to my contact at Rhino-Rack and they informed me that the Rhino-Rack Nautic Roof Kayak Carrier part # RR570 will fit the 1-3/4" diameter round crossbars on your Jeep if you use the Heavy-Duty Crossbar Adapter Kit for Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carriers and Fairings part # HD-FK1. The above kit comes with tie down straps but I also recommend using the Rhino-Rack Anchor Strap part # RRRBAS-2 to further secure the bow/stern of the kayak to the vehicle. I have attached a review...

  • Trailer Hitch and Roof Rack Recommendations for a 2014 Subaru Forester
  • An aftermarket trailer hitch will be much more versatile than the Class I Subaru trailer hitch and usually ends up costing you less money. Knowing what I do about that Subaru hitch I can say that if I had a 2014 Subaru Forester I would install an aftermarket hitch for sure for those reasons. If you will be using the hitch primarily for a bike rack then you won't have to get the biggest, baddest hitch available. That is why I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 36523. This is a Class II trailer...

  • Will the Rubber Pads on the Rhino-Rack Side Load Kayak Carrier Help If Rear Loading Kayak
  • The rubber pads on the Rhino-Rack Nautic Roof Kayak Carrier, Side Loading # RR570 are designed to help grip and secure your kayak, not to help slide the kayak onto the roof. You may be able to load the kayak from the back with the # RR570 carrier, but the rubber pads will not help you easily load the kayak. The felt pads on the Nautic Roof Kayak Carrier, Rear Loading # RR571 will help you easily load the kayak from the rear of your vehicle. The front brackets of the # RR571 carrier...

  • Will the Rhino-Rack Nautic Roof Kayak Carrier Fit a 2013 Honda CR-V with Factory Roof Rack
  • The Rhino-Rack Nautic kayak carrier # RR570 fits on crossbars that are up to 3-7/8 inches wide and 1-3/8 inches tall. The crossbars on your 2013 Honda CR-V should be within the acceptable dimensions so the carrier will fit. You can always measure the bars to verify. I have included a link to a video review of this carrier for you.

Both versions of the Nautic are fully compatible with both bar types but...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Heavy-Duty Kayak Carrier for 2014 Honda Accord
  • Starting with the roof rack I highly recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex System that consists of # RRVA137B-2 for the two 54" Aluminum Vortex Bars in Black or # RRVA137S-2 for Silver, # RRRLKVA for the 2500 Series Legs, and # DK359 for the Custom DK Fit Kit. I really like the Rhino-Rack Vortex systems because their aerodynamic bars with built-in channels provide many of the same benefits of the higher-end racks (extremely quiet ride, heavy-duty strength, compatibility with channel-mount...
