I bought this because I had limited room putting my Bonafide SS127 on my rack and roll trailer, and sometimes it will slide onto the part that holds the bars down and one time when it did that, it scratched the bottom of my kayak up pretty badly. These seem like they will be a decent solution and prevent that from happening again while holding my kayak secure. 872832

While I own several Yakima products I've always felt their prices were expensive. I believe these saddles are worth the price. Well made and hold my Hobie Compass securely. It seems like a very durable material, and I am pleased with the build quality. 822414

  • Compatibility of Yakima Big Catch Saddles for Blue Sky Angler 360 Kayak on Rack and Roll Trailer
    The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 66" # Y08106 is rated for 250 lbs. Your Jackson Blue Sky Angler 360 will work just fine on this trailer. The Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Saddle Style - Rear Loading - Clamp On - 150 lbs # Y04091 are under the capacity of the 170 lb boat, but they are almost twice as much capacity as the alternative options, so they are what I would use. You will also want the RoundBar Adapter Kit for Yakima BigCatch Saddles - Qty 4 # Y04093.

  • Will the Yakima Big Catch Rotate on Yakima Round Bars
    Yes the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs part # Y04091 will work on your Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer. To prevent them from moving they are easy to tighten down and get really secure. With that said there is the potential for them to rotate if you put a lot of pressure on them since it is a round bar it is something that we see from time to time. You will be able to tighten them down more but I do not want to tell you that no matter what happens they will never rotate. I've...

  • How To Secure A Kayak On the Lower Level Of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer
    I spoke with Yakima and they informed me that the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs part # Y04091 will fit on the lower level of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer part # Y08129 and will then allow you to secure your Hobie Tandem Mirage Kayak. The BigCatch has a 150 lb weight capacity and works with very larger crossbars so you will not have any issues. I will however say that most customers just use ratchet straps and pads to secure a kayak to the crossbars on the lower...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation to Carry Fishing Kayak with 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon Touring
    Thank you for all of the information! We do have a solution for you to carry a heavier fishing kayak, like the Old Town Predator PDL or the Hobie Outback, on the roof of your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon Touring Edition. For your application I recommend using the Yakima JetStream roof rack system which consists of their 50" Long Black # Y00425 or Silver # Y00428 JetStream Crossbars, RidgeLine Towers # Y00145, and RidgeClip Fit Kit # Y06028. This system has a 165 lb weight capacity so you...

  • Malone Microsport LowBed with Single Kayak Bunk and Spare Carrier
    We can piece together a Malone Lowbed trailer by first starting with the part # MPG464-LB and then a single bunk kit part # MPG561 and then the spare kit part # MPG465 and you'd be set. There isn't a kit with just the parts you are looking for available at this time.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for Feelfree Lure II 14 Foot Kayak on 2017 Honda CR-V
    Your Freelfree Overdrive Lure II Tandem kayak will indeed fit on your existing roof rack. According to what I've managed to look up, the kayak weighs up to 115 lbs, which is well within the capabilities of the Yakima Jetstream roof rack you mentioned. I have the perfect carrier for you. The Yakima BigCatch # Y04091 would work great for you. Due to the width of your kayak, using a j-style carrier like the Thule # TH834 Hull-A-Port wouldn't be a good choice, but the BigCatch would allow...

  • Kayak Carrier and Roof Rack for 2020 Subaru Ascent for Wide Fishing Kayak
    We do have a great option for a kayak carrier for your Nucanoe Frontier 12 fishing kayak, but the carrier you referenced is not going to work with a 41" wide kayak. Instead, I recommend a saddle-style carrier, the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # Y04091. The included tie-downs will make it so you don't have to purchase them separately, and the BigCatch also has a 150 lb capacity, making it one of the few carriers that has the needed capacity for your Nucanoe Frontier.

  • Will the Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier Work With a Hobie Kayak
    The best kayak carrier for a Hobie kayak is the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier part # Y04091 which is specifically designed for larger fishing kayaks. The Yakima BigCatch has a 150 lb weight capacity and you can adjust the cradles to fit the exact shape/width of the hull on the Hobie kayak allowing for the best fit. The Yakima BigCatch will also fit the factory crossbar on the Subaru Crosstrek no problem. The Yakima BigCatch comes with all the required tie downs as well so you don't have...

  • Do Yakima Kayak Carriers Fit Right-On Ruff Sport Trailers for Heavy Fishing Kayak
    I took a look at the website for the Right-On Ruff trailers and it specified that Yakima accessories will fit the crossbars of the Right-On Ruff Sport trailers. We do have a carrier that will work for you, although the Yakima Mako has been discontinued for some time, and it's replacement, the Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style with Rollers # Y04083-04082, only has an 80 lb capacity. That's not enough for your Jakckson Kayak 360 Angler, which, based on my research weighs...

  • Kayak Carriers Compatible With Larger 34" Wide Kayak
    The Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier part # Y04073 will carry a Kayak that is 34" wide as long as it does not weigh more than 80 lbs. If you are planning on carrying 2 kayaks they cannot exceed 110 lbs together. Most 34" wide kayaks like the fishing Hobie kayaks weigh more than 80 lbs so I recommend to check the weight. If your kayak fits the weight restrictions the JayLow is a great option. If your Kayak is heavier, I recommend to use the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Saddle...

  • How To Carry Two Fishing Kayaks On a 2018 Subaru Outback Touring
    In order to carry kayaks on a 2018 Subaru Outback Touring you will first need to start with a roof rack, the Yakima JetStream Crossbar part # Y00425, part # Y00145, and part # Y06028 is what I recommend. Then, you can add kayak carriers which will be based on the kayaks you'll be using. In order to fit two kayaks on the roof, you can either carry both on the side with j-style cradles or one on the side with a j-style cradle and the other on the hull with a saddle style cradle. That...

  • How To Secure Fishing Kayak On Lower Level Of Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer
    The lower level of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer part # Y08129 wound be a great place to store a fishing kayak. I'm sure you could devise a way to attach some bunk boards but I really don't have any options for this so instead i'd recommend the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier part # Y04091 which is designed for these larger fishing kayaks. In regards to the spare wheel/tire, the Spare Tire and Carrier for Yakima EasyRider Trailer part # Y08125 is the only thing we can recommend....

  • Can I Use the Rhino Rack Vortex ROC25 with the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Saddle on a 2019 VW Golf 5 Dr
    I'll try to tackle these in the order you asked them: 1) No, the # RRRS605B will not mount where the plastic tab is and will instead mount 7-7/8" towards the front of the vehicle from the line where the front and rear door meet- the # RRRS605B will clamp into the door jams on your 2019 VW Golf 5dr 2) It's generally a no-go when it comes to opening your moon roof with a roof rack attached to your roof. Luckily this roof rack is fairly easy to install and remove so you'll likely want...

  • Will Smart-Slot Crossbar Adapter Kit for Yakima BigCatch Saddles Fit Thule WingBar Evo Bars

  • Recommended Trailer for Two Titan Propel 12 Kayaks
    The best trailer we offer for your two Titan Propel 12 Kayaks is the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer part # Y08107 paired with the Heavy Duty Shocks for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer part # Y08110. The reason that I recommend the Rack and Roll is because of the fully independent, adjustable suspension which is going to provide a much better ride quality with less bounce when compared to the traditional leaf spring suspension system like on the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer. That said, if you...

  • Recommended Fixed Point Roof Rack for Carrying a Kayak with a 2019 Subaru Impreza
    Since you are wanting to use longer crossbars I recommend going with a Yakima roof rack because the slot on the bottom of the crossbars (where they mount to the feet) extend the whole length of the bar which means you can easily choose the length crossbar that you want to use on your 2019 Subaru Impreza. Typically this roof rack consists of the 50" JetStream Bars # Y00425 Black or # Y00428 Silver, the SkyLine Towers # Y00148, and the Landing Pad 22 # Y00248. This mounts to fixed points...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for a 2020 Hobie Outback Mirage Kayak
    The Thule DockGrip Kayak and SUP Carrier with Tie-Downs part # TH895 has a 75 lb weight capacity so if the 2020 Hobie Outback Mirage weighs 85 lbs it won't work. Instead, I recommend the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier part # Y04091 which has a 150 lb weight capacity so it will be much better suited for sit on top kayaks. The Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier should work just fine on a Mopar Roof Rack.

  • Is Yakima Kayak Carrier Compatible With Fishing Kayak With Scupper Holes
    Yes, you can use the Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style with Rollers # Y04083-04082 with your Jackson fishing kayak with scupper holes. Those holes will not interfere with the mounting that this carrier provides. The only thing to keep in mind is that this carrier has an 80 lb weight capacity and quite a few fishing kayaks are heavier than that, including some of the Jackson fishing kayaks I saw. If it was you'd need a different carrier, the Yakima BigCatch Kayak...

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the Rightline Gear Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs
    The Rightline Gear Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # RL100K10 don't have a weight rating so you are limited either by the weight rating of your bare roof, or the roof rack that these will be installed on (which is usually 165 lbs). With that being said, if you plan on transporting your kayak very far or transporting it frequently then I do recommend using something a little more solid like the etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier # e98878, Swagman Coronado # S65149, Yakima BigCatch # Y04091,...
