Padded, Telescoping Saddles

Thule SUP Shuttle Saddle

The SUP Shuttle's saddles easily telescope up to 12" to accommodate boards up to 34" wide. Just slide them to the desired width. Closed cell injection molded foam padding on the base of the saddles protects your boards from scuffs and scratches. This padding is weather resistant.

Tie-Down Straps

Thule SUP Tie Downs

Two tie-downs are included to secure your boards to your roof rack crossbars. The straps have cam buckles that let you tighten the straps and secure your boat. Rubber buckle bumpers help prevent damage to your kayak or vehicle when you're using the straps, and strap sleeves help grip and protect the top of your board. A tie-down strap with a stainless steel hook lets you anchor the tail of your board to your vehicle's bumper.

FlipFit Brackets

Thule Flip Fit Bracket

These reversible, FlipFit brackets fit most crossbars. The top and bottom of these brackets are shaped differently so that you can choose the curved surface that best fits your crossbars. Built-in, pivoting pins allow you to rotate the brackets so that you can easily reverse the orientation beneath your crossbars. And adjustment knobs with built-in screws tighten down the brackets. To install a bracket, rotate it on one of the pivoting pins and line it up below your crossbar. Slide the other pin into a notch on the side of the bracket. Tighten down the knobs.

Great! Good customer service. Thank you

It looks like your experience with the product or with shopping at etrailer could have gone better. If you would like to add any comments to your review, I would be happy to assist you.
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 11/16/2022


This is a very thought out design; hence it works on my GMC Yukon SUV. The carrier extends to match the width of your board to have more of a snug fit. The brackets that attach the carrier to your vehicle work facing down or up. At first I had them facing up and I thought this rack would not work, as the rack was still too loose. Then I learned that the brackets can face down as well, which makes it work for my rack. I'm using the factory racks from GMC, which aren't the greatest, and are a little thin, but the carrier fits snug. I get a much better fit for my boards now and feel safe traveling at higher speeds, as my boards aren't going anywhere, once I use the tie downs. I haven't used the extra hook tie down, as I don't think I need it, but if I ever travel a long distance with the boards, I will definitely use it.
There are a couple videos from etrailer showing how to mount them. Once you get the brackets facing the way you need for your vehicle rack, it's a quick install.

Ive now had this carrier for a year. Still working great and holding up very good. Great product. Also I usually use the carrier with two boards.

With a little help from youtube, this was one of the easiest things I've ever assembled! LOVE my new SUP rack!!


Service was excellent - they emailed me right away to indicate that my order was not in stock, but that they were locating one. They were able to find it almost immediately and ship it out.

Their videos are awesome, too -- great details on features and installation of products.

Highly recommend etrailer!

Great - love it.
Michael - 08/12/2019


This product arrived very timely and was easy to put together. From start to finish my husband and I had it installed within about 20 minutes, I was expecting a much more lengthy and frustrating installation but it was very simple. The rack parts appear to be very well made and everything we needed was in the box. We are looking forward to using it to carry our paddle board to the beach very soon! Thank you etrailer!


I needed a way to haul SUP board's on my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Product was exactly what I needed. Make sure you read all the instruction from the multiple boxes before you begin. Easy to install and a great fit!


Works flawlessly.

  • Will the Thule SUP Shuttle Fit on 36 Inches of Available Crossbar Length on a 2015 Honda CR-V?

  • Paddle Board Carrier Recommendation for a 2012 Honda Civic Sedan with Rola Roof Rack
    What I recommend for Rola roof rack 59758 and your 2012 Honda Civic sedan to carry the paddle board is the Thule SUP Shuttle Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier, # TH811XT. This carrier will fit the Rola bars and was designed for paddle boards. I have included a link to a video review of this carrier for you.

  • How are the Thule SUP Shuttle 811 and 811XT Different
    Both the 811 and the # TH811XT can hold 2 boards. I personally searched the manuals for both products to verify this. The 811 was a first run so it likely has parts that are riveted together rather than using screws. Generally that is how Thule does things and it is so they have to get the parts back, in this case the 811, to determine what happened to it and how they can make it better with the next generation of the same part; the XT. So basically, minor changes.

  • Will the Thule SUP Shuttle Part # TH811XT Fit a 2018 Mini Countryman with Factory Roof Rack
    Yes, the Thule SUP Shuttle Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier with Tie-Downs part # TH811XT will fit the factory roof rack on your 2018 Mini Countryman. I contacted Thule to confirm this. The Shuttle is an excellent option that will allow you to carry up to 2 surfboards or 2 stand-up paddleboards. It has telescoping saddles to accommodate different board types and it has a foam base to protect their finish. I have attached a review video of the above system for you as well.

  • Will the Thule SUP Shuttle Fit a 2013 Subaru Outback
    The Thule SUP Shuttle # TH811XT will fit your 2013 Subaru Outback as long as it has the factory roof rack and crossbars or an aftermarket roof rack installed. Like you mentioned the capacity of this carry is more than enough (110 pounds) for the combined 90 pounds you indicated. It is a fantastic option for your Outback and boards! The vehicle roof and roof rack will also need to be rated high enough for that much weight. The roof capacity for the vehicle is located on the placard attached...

  • How to Carry 2 Boards with the Thule SUP Carrier part # TH811XT
    I attached a review video for the Thule SUP Shuttle Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier with Tie-Downs # TH811XT that shows how to transport ONE SUP. To carry two boards the install will be very similar. I spoke to my contact at Thule to get their official instructions on adding a second board and they said you want to have the second board facing the same direction as the first one with it slid far enough forward that it doesn't interfere with the fins of the first board.

  • Will The Thule SUP Shuttle Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier Fit A 2018 Toyota RAV4 XLE W/ Factory Bars?
    Yes the Thule SUP Shuttle Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier with Tie-Downs # TH811XT will fit the factory rails on your 2018 Toyota RAV4 XL. This carrier is also capable of fitting round, square, aero, and elliptical bars, has a weight capacity of 110-lbs, and can carry 2 surfboards or 2 SUPs (stand up paddle boards). Attached is a review video for you to check out as well.

  • SUP and Surfboard Carrier for 2016 Subaru Forester With Factory Roof Rack
    I recommend checking out the Thule Shuttle # TH811XT, which is a confirmed fit for the factory roof rack on your 2016 Subaru Forester and can carry 2 surfboards or SUPs (the SUPs can be a maximum of 34" wide). It is easy to install with clamp-on brackets and comes with multiple tie-down straps to keep your boards in place.

  • Thule Roof Rack Surf Board Carrier Recommendation Similar to the SUP Taxi
    Since surfboards are narrower than the paddleboards you would want to use the Thule SUP Shuttle # TH811XT instead as it is designed to accommodate the smaller dimensions of a surf board. This rack is very similar to the # TH810001 though so it would be a great option for you.

  • Can the Thule SUP Shuttle Be Used to Carry a Kayak
    The SUP Shuttle # TH811XT is not designed to carry a kayak. Although Thule was recently here and that question came up and they said it was possible but definitely not recommended. Based on all this information I strongly advise against putting a kayak on this carrier. We do have many other kayak carriers. I have included a link to them for you. I recommend a kayak carrier that will hold the kayak up on its side, such as The Stacker, # TH830, which will provide you the most amount of...

  • What Watersport Carrier Completely Covers the Entire Length of My 60-Inch Crossbars?
    I have a great solution for you. Unfortunately, with Thule SUP and Surfboard Pads for AeroCrossbars - 30" Long # TH846000, these pads have Velcro sleeves that require you to loop around the crossbars. Technically, even though it is possible to use two sets of the # TH846000 for your 60-inch WingBar Evo Crossbars with the Rapid Podium feet, we do not recommend it due to the fact that you will not be able to attach the Velcro around the feet. This causes a inferior grip of the pads to the...

  • Can Thule SUP Roof Rack Carrier also Carry Surfboards
    We have the similar Thule SUP Shuttle Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier with Tie-Downs # TH811XT that can be used to carry surfboards but the Thule SUP Taxi XT part # TH810001 can't be adjusted narrow enough to carry surfboards.

  • What Ladder Rack do you Recommend for Kayak Transport on my 2009 Ford F-150 with a 5.5" Bed
    I have a similar solution but the crossbars on the Buyers Products Over-The-Cab Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # 3371501150 are going to be too large at 2" for the accessories you currently have. As are most of the ladder rack systems out there. The Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH500XT will get you up and running. It offers the option to mount t-trac accessories from all manufacturers and the crossbars are only 1 1/2" thick which most crossbar accessories...

  • Paddle Board Carrier for 2008 Subaru Impreza with Sportrack Roof Rack Installed
    The SportRack roof rack part # SR1010 is listed as a fit as-is for the sedan 2008 Subaru Impreza so a short roof adapter would not be needed. All she'd need is a paddleboard carrier compatible with square crossbars like the Thule SUP Shuttle part # TH811XT which comes with straps to secure the paddle boards to the crossbars as well. This is a very secure carrier that has ability to carry a second board if ever needed as well. I attached a review video for more info on this rack as too!

  • Locking Surfboard Carrier Recommendation for 2017 Ford Explorer
    The Thule SUP Shuttle Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier with Tie-Downs # TH811XT that you referenced isn't lockable but we do have the Inno Locker part # INA446 which is a locking surf board carrier that will work great on the factory crossbars of your 2017 Ford Explorer. This comes with locks and can fit 3 short surfboards, 2 windsurf boards, or 2 long surfboards. I attached a review video for this rack for more info as well.

  • Great Priced SUP Carrier and Roof Rack Recommendation for 2015 Jeep Renegade
    For transporting two SUPs the Thule SUP Shuttle Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier with Tie-Downs # TH811XT is a really great option that that can carry two SUPs and also doesn't break the bank. Your 2015 Jeep Renegade Limited Edition would have raised side rails on the roof so for a roof rack to fit this setup you would want the Malone AirFlow2 kit part # MPG216 which is a confirmed fit and is very quiet due to the aero shape of the bars.

  • How To Carry Both a Kayak with Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack and SUP On the Roof Of a Vehicle
    Correct, the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier part # RRS520 won't work with a SUP because these need to hauled flat so you don't have issues with wind resistance which could then dislodge the carrier. The Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier could still be used for your kayak but you would then need a saddle style carrier for the SUP, the Thule SUP Shuttle Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier part # TH811XT would work well for this. The Thule SUP Shuttle would get installed on one side...

  • Is There a Locking SUP Carrier
    There is a great option for a SUP carrier that is lockable to your roof rack, though the Thule SUP Shuttle # TH811XT can't be locked. There is one option I recommend checking out instead, which comes with integrated locks to secure them and help protect your investment. - Yakima SUPDawg Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier with Tie-Downs # Y04075 The SUPDawg is able to carry 2 SUPs, comes with a long to not only to keep the carrier secure to your roof rack, but also a lock to secure your boards...

  • Roof Rack and Paddleboard Carrier for a 2007 Honda CR-V
    For a roof rack that fits the factory mounting points on your 2007 Honda CR-V Rola roof rack # RRRVP15 is the most cost effective option and it looks similar to a factory style roof rack. With the roof rack installed you can then use the Thule SUP Shuttle, # TH811XT. This carrier has a 2-board capacity. The Shuttle is rated for 110 pounds but is limited to the vehicle roof weight carrying capacity. I have included a link to a video review for you to view.

  • Best SUP Carrier for 2019 Honda Civic Sedan With Rola Roof Rack
    The Rola Rail Extreme DFE Series Roof Rack # R5002 that fits your 2019 Honda Civic 4-door sedan is a great option for a roof rack and will allow you to use a high-quality stand-up paddleboard carrier. I recommend checking out the Thule SUP Shuttle # TH811XT because it is easy to use and includes all the needed tie-downs to carry your board. The SUP Shuttle uses brackets which simply clamp onto your Rola crossbars and all you need to do is put your SUP on the carrier, tie it down and off...

    To carry your SUP on the roof of your 2006 Toyota Corolla you'll first need a roof rack. The most economical option for your car is the SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack for Naked Roofs # SR1002. This uses a clamp-style to connect to your naked roof. No tools are required for installation and it can be locked to the roof of your car. Once you have a roof rack, a great SUP carrier is the Thule SUP Shuttle # TH811XT. This fits boards up to 34 inches wide and will carry up to two boardsa...

  • Can Surfboard Carrier For 2 Boards Be Used On 2016 Audi Q5 With Factory Crossbars
    I wish I had a carrier that you would be able to carry two surfboards with on your 2016 Q5 but the only carrier we offer that can carry two boards is a Thule carrier, part # TH811XT, and it is not confirmed as a fit for your Audi crossbars. The Rhino-Rack SUP and Surfboard Pad, part # RRRWP03 is designed to work with crossbars that measure up to 1-3/4 inches tall and 3-1/2 inches wide. This system comes with 2 tie-downs that help secure the board to the crossbars.

  • Roof Rack and Surf Board Carrier for 2008 Toyota Yaris
    The SportRack # SR1002 roof rack system fits your 2008 Toyota Yaris and is a very cost-effective rack if that is your primary goal. It fits both sedan and hatchback styles. Once installed the rack's two crossbars will be positioned 30-inches apart. This will provide a base for your longboard and its carrier. The rack has a 130-lb capacity but its a good idea to also check your Yaris owner's manual just in case the car's roof itself has a lower weight rating. All roof racks for your car...

  • Will I Be Able to Fit a Kayak and Stand Up Paddle Board on a 2016 Jeep Cherokee with 53 Crossbars
    You will be able to fit both your kayak and stand up paddle board on the top of your 2016 Jeep Cherokee with your Thule AeroBlade roof rack. Make sure you do not exceed 150 lbs. of weight on your roof as that is the maximum weight allowed on top of your vehicle. To carry your stand up paddle board, you have more options than just pads. I recommend the Yakima SUPDawg Carrier # Y04075. This carrier is more secure than just pads as this carrier can lock and steel-reinforced straps hold your...
