The Yakima Mako Saddles turn your roof rack into a saddle-type kayak rack that cradles your kayak hull-side down. This Yakima rack accessory features form-fitting cradles that fit any hull shape, dynaflex pads that flex to grip the boat hull securely, and a tightening strap that gives you control over the grip on your kayak. A Yakima kayak rack makes it easy to load up and travel with your kayak so when you're sick of buildings, roads and people you can hit the water.
