Product description and picture are misleading, you have to buy two of these racks to carry one kayak. The product works well and holds the kayak tight with no scuffing. Not sure I could carry two boats with this kind of rack on 48" crossbars. The straps that come with these racks are great and easy to use, they pull down so tight you could crush the boat. Took a 325 mile trip on the interstate, rock solid and no wind noise at 70-80 mph.

Yakima Mako saddles rule!

I can understand the impulse to save a few bucks by purchasing the landsharks or another brands saddles but don't do it. Why pay $3,000.00 for a fiberglass kayak and then beat the hull to death on your roof or worse yet lose the boat on the highway.

Yakima mako saddles adjust to many different hull shapes, hold the boat very securely and provide a bit of cushion for the boat over bumps. I have used these saddles on several different fiberglass and poly boats and have been extremely pleased with the hull contact. I have not seen hull abrasions and roughening at the site of contact that occurs with other saddles. While the slight movement of the boat while traveling takes some getting used too - this is the saddle flexing, not the boat moving in the saddles - this action gives the boat a bit of cushion on 4x4 or rough roads. Very secure at highway speeds.

Great product that should last you years and years.

Purchased two sets of Yakima Mako Saddles to hold our two touring kayaks on top of our Yakima round bars. After several trips with our kayaks in the saddle we find that they hold the kayaks securely even at 70 mph.

I would give these saddles five stars if they were simpler to mount and dismount from the bars. Each saddle is secured by FOUR wing nut bolts. Before each trip I must position all four saddles (two per kayak) and secure SIXTEEN wing nuts. Then I must thread the straps through the saddles and around the kayaks. Let this be a challenge to Yakima engineers, design a secure kayak mounting system with a simpler (one step?) fastner.

Otherwise, Yakima products rule!

We paired these with Hully Rollers in the rear and they are great. Strapping the kayak in takes a bit of work but it is worth it.

We have 2 kayaks and use 2 sets of these saddles to transport our kayaks. We have them mounted on Honda Pilot and there is enough room for both kayaks. We have found this system to be fairly easy to use and they hold the kayaks well.

We have a large, sit on top kayak that we transport with a Honda Odyssey. We added a Yakima rack system with Hully Rollers on the back and these Mako Saddles on the front. Fantastic combination. Very secure, no issues, whatsoever. Will be traveling 5 hours soon with the kayak strapped on top. I am not concerned about the trip, at all!

This device was perfect for our mounting system for a two person kayak. It was much cheaper than in the stores.

Color Name: With TiedownSize Name: One Size Verified Purchase
I bought these at the end of kayak season in fall. Once the season started up again in the spring, I went to attach them to my vehicle. Then I read that they need to be at least 24 inches apart (minimum crossbar spread). The problem is my boat is 16.5 inches wide. So it didn't fit. Seems silly that it only accommodates wide boats. I was going to return them but found out that my return window expired. So before you buy this, make sure your boat is wide enough. These are NOT universal. Secondly, make sure you use them shortly after you buy them so your return window doesn't expire.
