Our take on the Thule 883 Glide and Set™ Kayak Carrier

by Kristen Schaub
Thule

Thule's Glide and Set kayak carrier package contains everything you need to strap a kayak onto most roof racks. The felt-lined Hydro Glide™ saddles allow you to slide the kayak into position. Once in place, the Set-to-Go™ saddles provide maximum grip with six times more contact area than roller-type loading.

The package also includes all the hardware and straps you need to secure the kayak on your roof. All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.

Highlights:

  • one set of low-friction, felt-lined Hydro-Glide saddles for easy loading
  • one set of high-friction Set-to-Go saddles grips kayak for safe transport
  • easy carrier transfer from vehicle to vehicle with universal hardware
  • includes four saddles, ratcheting tie downs, heavy-duty straps, and buckle protectors
  • fits most roof racks
  • warranty: limited lifetime
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
