Thule's Set-to-Go kayak saddles hold your kayak securely on your roof rack. These saddles provide six times more contact area than roller-type loading for secure, form-fitting support, and their tacky surface gribs and holds your kayak.

The saddles are compatible with Thule, Yakima, and most factory roof racks. All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.

Note: You'll need two sets of saddles to carry a kayak. You can use another set of Thule's Set-to-Go, or many people use a set of 875XT Hydro-Glide saddles to slide the boat into place, while the Set-To-Go saddles hold the boat securely.

Product Highlights:

  • form-fitting saddles protect and stabilize kayak
  • includes one ratcheting tie down, strap, and buckle protector
  • fits most roof racks
  • warranty: limited lifetime
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
