Thule Kayak Roof Rack 520-1


The Thule 520-1 is a pair of folding uprights for carrying one or two kayaks on their sides. Includes 2 x 275cm securing straps.

The Thule folding uprights are compatible with standard square bars, aero, wing and slide bars, and are secured in the upright or flat position by tri-wing nuts on each bar. When not in use, the upright bars can be folded flat to reduce overall vehicle height and wind resistance, which can be useful when car parks have height barriers!

One pair of 2.75m Thule roof rack straps is supplied with the Kayak Stacker. If you are carrying two kayaks, you will need a second pair of straps.

Note: If you are loading kayaks onto standard plastic coated bars, we recommended fitting roof bar pads for extra grip and padding (T-track bars have a rubber strip that does this without additional padding).
