Kayaks and SUPs may move effortlessly across water, but they do not move effortlessly onto the roof of a vehicle. Even with the help from a buddy, the task of getting a heavy, bulky kayak or SUP from the ground to the roof carrier can be a bit of a challenge. And for those who hope to head out on a solo adventure, getting the watercraft on and off the roof can be impossible without some kind of lift assist device. The Yakima ShowDown kayak/SUP loader is a side-loading lift assist system for either a single kayak or up to two SUPs (maximum weight 80 lbs) that will make the difference between getting out on the water or staying home. Featuring a simple slide-out and tilt-down mechanism that brings the carry cradles to the convenient loading height of waist level, the Yakima ShowDown side loader enables a single person to safely and easily load and unload a boat or paddleboard. With tool-free universal bar clamps, the ShowDown attaches in minutes to virtually any style of crossbar (crossbars must have adequate maximum weight load) and can be locked to the bars with optional Yakima SKS locks (sold separately). The ShowDown can fold flat to maintain a low profile on the roof when not in use and it comes with a set of Yakima HeavyDuty load straps and Bow/Stern tie downs.
