A kayak holder is used to transport a kayak on the car roof. There are a number of different kayak holders on the market. Even though they all basically fulfil the same function, they come in different shapes, sizes and price ranges.
At Långholmen kajak we recommend our transport cradles in foam, which are "foam blocks" that are pressed onto the roof rack without hassle. They are easy to assemble, easy to handle when not in use and very affordable. No twisting, no messing around, you just put up the kayak, strap on and drive away.
The transport cravags take into account the 3 most important aspects when transporting kayaks:
- Safety of the kayak
The most important function of the kayak holder is to transport the kayak safely. The fact that the kayak can be transported safely means that it is not at risk of being damaged or dropped, or scratched during transport.
- Ease of transport
If you move your kayak around often, it is important that it is easy to mount the kayak on the roof rack.Keep in mind that time spent loading the kayak often becomes time that you lose out on the water.
Do you find it difficult to put the kayak on the car roof on your own?Then you can try a boat roller. Denna gör det enkelt och smidigt att själv skjuta upp kajaken på taket.
- Place on the roof rack
If you have a car with limited space on the roof rack, it is usually still possible to bend on a transport cradle where the cradle protrudes a bit longer than the length of the roof rack. If you want to transport two kayaks on the roof, you get space in this way with two transport cradles next to each other, no matter how wide the roof rack you have.
Good luck with your purchase of kayak holders!
