Thule Hullavator Pro 898


The Thule Hullavator Pro 898 takes the strain for you thanks to its gas-assist struts that lift and lower 18kg of your kayaks weight, allowing you to load and unload single handed.


The Hullavator Pro lowers down the side of your vehicle to waist height so you don't have to struggle lifting your kayak on to the roof rack after a long days paddling, it also prevents you accidently scratching the side of your vehicle as you don't have to lean over to place your kayak on the roof rack.


The Hullavator can carry one kayak measuring up to 80cm wide and weighing up to 35kg.


Thule QuickDraw bow and stern tie-downs are included for securing and transporting 1 kayak.


Note: The Thule Hullavator Pro 898 requires the Thule ProBar roof bar - Manchester Canoes are offering a pair of Thule ProBars for the same price as Thule WingBars at only £117.00! (Usually £140) when purchased with the Thule Hullavator Pro 898.
