Thanks to the bundled bow/stern tie-down straps, your kayak will stay incredibly stable whether you're cruising down a country road or a busy highway. An ideal companion for Yakima's HullyRollers or Multimount accessories, the carrier works with round, square, and most factory crossbars (the latter requires the Multimounts) and carries a one-year warranty.

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.
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!
