The Yakima ShowDown kayak/stand up paddle board rack makes loading and unloading heavy boats and boards a breeze, thanks to the slide and tilt mechanism that takes on up to 45% of the weight.


  • Easily load and unload SUP boards and kayaks at waist level with a mechanism that tilts down 26 in. from the roof rack; it bears nearly half the weight as you raise it up
  • 80 lb. boat and board capacity; easily handles 1 large kayak or 2 stand up paddle boards
  • Lightweight materials and construction don't eat up your roof's carrying capacity
  • Felt-covered cradles flex, conforming to hull for secure transport
  • Folds down flat to reduce drag and noise when not in use
  • Comes fully assembled right out of the box, installs in minutes
  • Locks to base rack with SKS Lock Cores for added security (sold separately)
