This saddle-style carrier lets you transport 1 kayak or stand-up paddleboard on your roof rack crossbars. The cradle heads pivot for easier loading from the side of your vehicle, and rubber pads conform to your kayak's shape. The system includes tie-down straps and universal mounting hardware that fits most crossbars.

Pivoting Saddles

The Rincon's pivoting saddles make it easy to load your kayak from the side of your vehicle. Flip the cradles toward you, and push your kayak onto your roof. As you push, the saddles will flip inward to face the opposing saddles. Your kayak will come to rest between the 4 cradles.

Protective Pads

Rubber pads on the cradles protect your kayak from scuffs and scratches. These pads are designed to conform to your hull and to help hold it in place during transport.

Tie-Down Straps

The carrier includes 2 tie-down straps with padded cam-lock buckles that protect your kayak and your vehicle from scratches and scuffs. Just loop the straps around your crossbars and around your kayak. Secure the straps in place with the cam buckles.

Two bow/stern ropes with vinyl-coated S-hooks are also included to secure the front and back of your kayak to your vehicle. This will help prevent your kayak from shifting during transport.

Universal Hardware

The Rincon easily installs on your crossbars with universal mounting hardware. Clamp the brackets around your crossbars, and tighten them with the hand knobs. Use the included 100-mm bolts to fit larger diameter crossbars.

Easy to put on and take off. Being able to load from the side makes it a breeze. The only reason that I won't give it 5 stars, is that the straps to hold down the kayak were way to short. I guess they would work for a tiny kayak you purchase at Walmart, but for my Old Town Trip Angler fishing kayak they weren't even close. Easy enough to use a ratchet strap though, so all in all I'm happy with my purchase and would recommend this product. 271936

We had the challenge of how to carry 2 kayaks this summer in addition to hauling a 30 foot gooseneck horse trailer. We have F450 crew cab with custom truck bed. We hoped to use the "head ache" bar on the truck bed to support the rear sets of Swagman Rincon supports and purchased a single Rhino Vortex bar for the forward sets on top of the cab. We have 10.5 and 12 foot kayaks and this looks to be an excellent solution. The kayaks are clear of the gooseneck trailer even in a "jackknife" position. Please note the truck bed is extra long therefore there is plenty of room forward the nose of the trailer. We have not hauled yet but will convey any issues if there are any. eTrailer tech support was excellent. Product shipped as projected. Installation took approximatly 3 hours. 358128


Great system, etrailer provides great service. I recommend whenever possible.

Cradles work great and fit perfectly for my V1s. However, may I suggest shrink wrapping the fasteners because over time it gets loose and tends to shift on the rack. 642371

Over all ordering experience was really good. As soon as all my order was available, it shipped immediately and arrive quickly. 371355

  • Recommended Two Kayak System for 2017 Ford F450 with Sunroof Pulling 5th Wheel Trailer
  • To avoid your bed when towing a 5th wheel on your 2017 Ford F-450, the best way to carry your couple of kayaks is to use a roof rack and a front hitch receiver with a load extender. You may not be able to use your sunroof with the kayaks installed. My recommendation is the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65076 which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle along with the Thule Goalpost Hitch Mounted Load Bar # TH997. Then I recommend the Thule roof rack...

  • Recommended Tonneau Cover with Rails for 2019 Ford Ranger For Kayak or SUP Transport
  • For your 2019 Ford Ranger I recommend the Pace Edwards UltraGroove Metal Hard Tonneau Cover - Retractable - Aluminum - Matte Black # 311-KMFA31A62 for a 6 foot bed or # 311-KMFA30A61 for a 5 foot bed. The The T-tracks on the UltraGroove are designed to work with roof rack crossbars and other accessories. To add a set of crossbars to these tracks I recommend the Yakima 60 inch JetStream Bars # Y00425 along with the Landing Pad # Y00221 and Towers # Y00148 to attach them to the tracks....

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Carrier for Kayak and Paddleboard on 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
  • I took a look at the owner's manual of your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and it stated that your roof's weight capacity was 150 lbs, so as long as the combined weight of the rack, carriers, your kayak and paddleboard are less than that you will be able to transport them. To start you will need a roof rack, and if it has raised side rails I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero which consists of crossbars # RRVA118B-2 and legs # RRSX100. This roof rack can accommodate the 150 lb roof capacity...

  • Kayak Roof Attachments Compatible With Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack # EM07705
  • I reached out to Erickson and the ladder rack # EM07705 has crossbars that are 3-1/4 wide by 1-1/2 inches tall. That will make some Kayak carrier options unable to work and other still functional. The Rhino Rack Nautic Roof # RR571, the Thule Top Deck # TH881, and the Yakima EvenKeel # Y04052 will not be compatible. However, Swagman says their Rincon # S65141 will work even if you need to purchase longer screws at a local hardware shop.

  • Can Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier Haul Fishing Kayak
  • Yes, the Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier System with Tie-Downs # S65145 is compatible with a 36 inch wide fishing kayak, but there are also better options for this style of kayak. Instead of the single saddle of the Exo Aero I highly recommend using one with four separate saddles that you can position at the width of your choosing for optimal security. A budget-friendly but solid option is the Swagman Rincon Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier w/ Tie Downs - Saddle Style #...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2017 Nissan Titan XD
  • The best roof rack option for your 2017 Nissan Titan XD Crew Cab is the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 # RRRS711B. This is a complete roof rack will not damage your Nissan's paint when you want to remove it. The crossbars are aero shaped to minimize the amount of wind noise you and do not extend past your cab, giving your truck a sleek look even with the roof rack attached. To carry your kayak and paddle board I recommend checking out the Swagman Rincon Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier...

  • Roof Rack for a Kayak and SUP on a 2006 Honda CR-V
  • You can build a roof rack setup that will let you carry both a SUP and a kayak on your 2006 Honda CR-V. If you don't already have a roof rack system in place, I recommend Rhino Rack's Vortex Aero system, a kit consisting of: Rhino Rack Vortex Crossbars, 41 inches, Silver, part # RRVA106S-2 or Black, part # RRVA106B-2 Rhino Rack Legs for Vortex, part # RRSX100 This will attach to your vehicle's existing rails that run front to back and allow you to equip a kayak carrier on one...

  • Comparing Swagman Rincon to Thule DockGrip Kayak and SUP Carrier
  • The Thule DockGrip Kayak and SUP Carrier with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style - Rear Loading - Universal Mount # TH895 is a great option with a weigh capacity of 75 lbs and max kayak or SUP width of 36 inches. This carrier is also able to install in the T-track on top of the rack if desired for a very clean look and greater security. The Swagman Rincon Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier w/ Tie Downs - Saddle Style - Side Loading # S65141 are similar but different. The Swagman carrier...

  • What Is Crossbar Distance Needed For Roof Rack Paddleboard Carriers
  • There is no preferred crossbar spread listed for the paddleboard carriers we offer. They do however list the minimum crossbar spread at 24-inches. This is the minimum distance needed for part # Y04078, part # TH811XT, part # S65141, and # Y04075. Each carrier has weight capacities and crossbar dimensions, so you want to make sure you select the right carrier that will work for you.

  • Roof Rack and SUP Carriers for 3 SUPs on a 2016 Chevy Tahoe
  • Let's start with a roof rack for your 2016 Chevy Tahoe with factory side rails. The most cost effective option is from Inno using the following parts: Square bars # INB165 Feet # INXP Fit kit # INTR154 You can then use the Thule SUP Shuttle # TH811XT to carry 2 of the boards stacked. Like you said stacking 3 boards is not recommended due to instability. At the widest this carrier will take up 35 inches of crossbar space. The square bars listed above are 65 inches long so if you...

  • Recommendations For Carrying Three Sail Boards And A SUP At Back Of Winnebago
  • Trying to carry all of your boards and a SUP on a cargo carrier and then use a bike carrier to separate the boards is not a really good idea. It would be extremely hard to stabalize the boards on a cargo carrier. I do have some recommendations that will work for you. To make sure everything is secured properly I recommend the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer, part # Y08107. This is like having a roof rack on wheels with 78-inch ccrossbars. The weight capacity for this trailer is 250-lbs. For...

  • Does Swagman Rincon Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier require Crossbars On 2013 Jeep Patriot
  • The Swagman Rincon Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier, part # S65141 does require that crossbars are installed on a vehicle. I recommend crossbars like the Inno Square Crossbars. The feet included with this roof rack clamp around the raised side rails on your Patriot roof and includes locking covers to help deter theft. To order this roof rack you will need part # INB117 and part # INFR.

  • Can Swagman Rincon Kayak and SUP Saddles Travel Highway Speeds?
  • I reached out to my contact at Swagman and there is not a speed restriction on their Rincon Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier # S65141 so I don't know why you were given a limit. People use these sadles and tie-downs all the time at highway speeds without issue. As long as your boat or SUP can handle the speed and the watersport manufacturer doesn't restrict, you won't have issue. I confirmed with my tech contact at Swagman they will work fine at highway speeds. You obviously...

  • Mounting 2 Kayaks and a SUP to 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe With Factory Roof Rack
  • It is possible you may be able to mount a pair of kayaks on their side and your SUP on the factory roof rack of your 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe, but you'll need to measure the width of your bars to ensure you can use both a SUP carrier and a carrier for two kayaks I recommend the Yakima BigStack Roof Mounted 2 Kayak Carrier System # Y04041 to mount two kayaks on the side and the Swagman Rincon Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier # S65141 next to that if you have the room on your crossbars....
