Recommended Kayak Carrier to Use on Thule Xsporter Truck Rack


I am looking for a solution to carry my 120 , Wilderness Pungo on my Thule X Sporter truck rack. I prefer something to a deck mounted solution as opposed to a j type rack.

To transport your 120 Wildreness Pungo Kayak with your Thule Xsporter Truck Rack, I recommend looking at the Thule Surf Pad - Crossbar Pad # TH845000. These pads are compatible with the Xsporter crossbars and will work well for hauling your kayak. The pads feature a split-bottom design that will wrap around the bars on your system, and elastic cords at the ends will cinch the pad into place.

I have attached a video demonstration of this system so you can see exactly how it works.

You can then use straps like the Thule # TH521 to secure your kayak to the crossbars. These are cinching tie-downs with chromate-plated steel cam buckles and have a safe working load limit of up to 750 pounds.
