Video Transcript for Swagman Exo Aero Kayak Carrier System Review

Today we'll be taking a quick look at the Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier with tie-downs, part number S65145. This is a two-piece saddle-style carrier that holds one kayak or canoe hull-side down on the roof of your vehicle. This carrier is made of a glass-reinforced thermal plastic that is lightweight and durable, and also has a soft, polyvinyl saddle that protects your hull from abrasions and scratches. The Swagman Exo Aero works for round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. With the small, compact design of the Exo Aero, it can be mounted at the end of your crossbars opening up more space on your roof rack for other gear. It comes with everything that you need to secure a kayak or a canoe to the roof: two tie-down straps with cambuckles and two bow and stern ropes. Now we'll go over the quick, simple, tool-free installation. The first thing we need to do is simply just place the kayak rack up onto the crossbar.

Now there are two bolts that come with this kit: two long bolts and then two of the shorter bolts. We have an aero bar here so what I'm going to do is just simply slide the bolt in. Then it comes with a vinyl-coated bracket which we will just insert with the bolt through the hole and thread on your wing nut. With the front part of the rack installed, then I'll just repeat the same process for the rear saddle. Now that we have it installed onto our crossbars, we're ready to load up a kayak. We'll lift the kayak up and place it into the saddles.

A neat thing about it is that is kind of flexible so it will have some give when you're placing it hull-side down into the saddles. Then what you want to do is just get it as even as possible, making sure as much of the saddle comes into contact with the hull of the boat as possible. Now that we have the kayak in place we're going to use the cambuckle straps to secure the kayak to the vehicle. Just depending on what you're most comfortable with, you can either install the strap first and then load up the kayak, or what I did is I installed the kayak and now I'm going to install the straps. Basically all you need to do is insert one end of the strap through the hole here at the end of the saddle and then just take the strap and then throw it over the kayak. Because this is a cambuckle strap you're going to have to do the throw-over technique with both ends of the strap. We're going to go back through this end and then back up to the cambuckle and pull it tight.

Neat thing about this is that they have this pad here that the cambuckle will rest on to protect your kayak from any scratches or abrasions. Pull that tight, then you just tie off the excess strap. Then I'll just repeat the same process for the back one. Now we're ready to install the bow and stern ropes. The ropes do come with a s-hook preattached. What I'll want to do is just insert one end of the strap through the handle here.

Then I'm going to come back down and I'm going to try to find a sturdy steel anchor point on the underside of the car to where I can hook this to. Then I'll repeat the same process for the back. That will complete today's review of the Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier System, part number S65145. .

Works well and is well made. No a quick on and off the roof. Screws provided to attach rack to rails were way too long and all had to be cut. They have a unique head which made it impossible to just get shorter screws. Does not fold flat so garage door opening has to be pretty tall. 284285

Although it's good quality for the money and job to hold kayaks, you need to have a sea/ww kayak for best results, I should have bought something for a canal kayak. Still it's good quality. Would recommend buying it even though I needed something different. 525693

I have (2) Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 kayaks and was looking for something better that the cheap J-Shape kayak holders that I purchased elsewhere. Unless you are tall enough to lift the kayaks and install them from the side, the loading of a kayak on it's side is unwieldy and somewhat frustrating to keep the kayak from flipping to a horizontal position. I am using the factory racks with crossbars on my 2006 Toyota Highlander. I was looking for a solution that would allow me to load 2 kayaks with the keel down. Using a large bath mat to protect the paint I was able to load the kayak by myself and I am 5'6". The one thing that they could improve is that the rubber pads on the wings are very tacky. Once that you set the kayak onto the wings, the kayak will not move back and forth. You will find it very hard to move the kayak front to back once it is set in the cradle. This is a good thing since the kayak could slide off should a strap fail. The Pungo 120 has multiple angles so the contact with the wings are very minimal. The rubber does keep it in place before strapping them down. Once you load the kayak onto the wings, it will stay where it is.. it is a kind of a struggle to move the kayak.. a solution is to throw large beach towel on the wings before loading your kayak and you can position the kayak with ease. Once you have centered your kayak, lift the kayak one end at a time and remove the towel. Bow and stern tie downs are necessary to completely secure your kayak. The wings are 28" across and will rise 6" above your crossbars that you attache them to. 280378

Ask the Experts about this Swagman Watersport Carriers

Do you have a question about this Watersport Carrier?


  • Carrying an 18-1/2 Foot Canoe and Tandem Bike on a 2018 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack
  • There are canoe carriers that work with the bar spread of 27-1/2 inches on your 2018 Toyota Highlander. The Swagman Exo Aero # S65145 requires a minimum of 24 inches of bar spread. But I understand what you are saying. The canoe is so long you will need extra support. If your Highlander has a 2 inch trailer hitch or if you added one such as # e98844 you could then use a load extender such as the Yakima LongArm # Y01149 or MaxxTow extender # MT70231. These will essentially add a third...

  • Inno Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier for 2013 Kia Sportage with Bare Roof
  • Roof racks for your 2013 Kia Sportage that has a bare roof are displayed on the linked page and these include racks from Inno and others. For the Inno 54-inch square bar rack you referenced you will need to order parts # INB137, # INSUT and # INK701. On your vehicle this rack will install with a 28-inch bar spread; the rack weight capacity is 120-lbs. It is a good idea to check your Kia owner's manual to make sure your roof can handle the weight of the canoe. Of course, the canoe cannot...

  • Will Swagman Exo Aero Kayak Carrier fit 2010 Honda CR-V BrightLines Crossbars?
  • There is a carrier that will work for you, but from my research it looks like the BrightLine crossbars you mentioned for your 2010 Honda CR-V are 2-3/4" wide. 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. There is a saddle-style carrier which might work depending on the spread of your crossbars, the Rhino-Rack...

  • We have several roof rack options for your 2015 Nissan Pathfinder with a naked roof, and these can be seen on the page I linked for you. Please note that all of these racks have 59-inch crossbars. I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex black bar system made of parts # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK407. This racks offers a high 165-lb weight capacity, aerodynamic elliptical bars that will make less noise than most other shapes and it offers excellent compatibility with rooftop carriers. You...

You can see all racks on the linked page and these include Yakima products. However the track-based roof racks like the item you referenced # Y01127 require drilling and permanent installation so they are not the best choice for a leased vehicle. The lowest-cost option that you can easily remove when it is time to return the leased Pilot is the Yakima CoreBar system...

These handy stops include a local tie-down point so you can strap the canoe down with cam straps. There's a great locking kit available from Yakima as part # Y04048. Additionally, they easily install and remove from the bars with a clamping mechanism that raises and lowers its T-bolt, letting it lock exactly into position.

  • Kayak Carrier for Whispbar Aero-Style Roof Rack Crossbars
  • The Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier # S65145 will fit on aero/elliptical roof rack bars that are up to 2-1/2-inches wide. Since quiet aero bar racks are quite popular and offered by several makers like Whispbar, Thule and Rhino-Rack most carriers' mounting hardware is made to accommodate their larger dimensions. However, the Whispar crossbars are too wide, at over 3-inches, to work with this particular carrier. All aero-bar-friendly kayak carriers are shown on the linked page. Yakima,...

  • Foam block type kayak carriers like the Coastal # S65156 from Swagman and similar carriers from other makers sometimes include some tie down straps, which absolutely should be installed on both bow and stern ends of the kayaks. Since the Coastal happens to be sold without straps you will definitely need an item like their 10-foot Cam Buckle Cinch Straps # S65137 or the 16-foot Yakima Cinch Straps # Y05006 that you referenced in your question. Using two sets of straps is not a bad idea either. Foam...

The total combined weight of the two carriers, two kayaks and the roof rack you install must together not exceed the Ford's weight rating.

Prior to installation, be sure that there is at least 30 inches between where you intend to install the bars, as this is required to help distribute the load's weight. For the carriers, you'll want something that can handle both kayaks and canoes, and is fairly light so when you open the...

This carrier would also be much better for the flatter bottom than the Exo.

Thing is, by the time you add kayak and/or canoe carriers, and the boats themselves, you've got so much stuff on your roof that can make noise that the benefit of the quieter Aero bars may not be evident. With that said, the cost of some Aero racks like the Rhino-Rack Vortex system,...

If the 78 inch bar, part # Y00411 isn't legal in your area, you can use the 66 inch bars, part # Y00410. Your best combination is going to be using two saddle-style mounts that carry the canoe hull side down, as its curved bottoms will allow for the most space to be freed up.

  • What is the Crossbar Spread on a 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan

The distance they list pertains to what they think is the best location for their system which often correlates to the design of the roof and its strongest points. The reason as to why Yakima is able to offer a greater spread than Thule is because they place their front crossbar farther forward on the roof. Unfortunately, we do not have a roof rack system with a crossbar spread greater than the 32" listed...
