These so far are excellent, I won't actually load my kayak until tomorrow, but so far so good. I found the poles fit better now that I know the bottom foot telescopes as well.

Malone Telos Load Assist is an amazing solution to lifting a kayak onto rooftop when one of you is Vertically challenged and the other has no upper body strength. Will be great for when we are 75 or 80 years old and still kayaking. We looked at Thule Hullavator and putting aside its big price, you simply cannot fit a second kayak in a standard cradle on most cars if you have a Thule Hullavator on the other side, the square crossbars you would need would extend way too far out. The Malone Telos is well made and ratcheting System is easy. I give the Telos 5 Stars however, Since I bought the Telos and the Malone Downloader as a package, I have to take off a star for the Malone Downloader because the knobs to tighten the rubber coated mount brackets to cars cross bars loosen with each trip and you have to check and tighten them regularly. I bought some longer malone bolts and added lock washers which helps some but you still need to inspect and tighten. Also, the rubber coating on the Malone attachment brackets cracks after tightening. etrailer’s Service by email and phone is outstanding though and I will certainly buy other products through etrailer again.

Malone Telos-XL with J racks has opened a new chapter in our retirement. Loading and unloading kayaks was becoming more difficult with larger vehicles. We researched other products but were immediately impressed with the design, quality, and price. Ease of use is best feature. A great product!

The yellow pads on the crossbars are pool noodles secured by zip ties. They provide padding for a third or even a fourth kayak.

Malone DownLoader Kayak Carriers are a perfect design. Fold down locking mechanism when not in use is a great feature as well as adjustable upright angles for transporting kayaks. Easy to follow instructions along with sturdy tie downs. Highly recommended!

The rack itself seems great, BUT neither 60mm or 70 mm mounting bolts work for the VA style 2500 series rack. I now have to go to lowes and buy AT LEAST 80mm if not longer so the T Knob can screw in tightly to Jaws adapter and that tightens to the cross bar. The T Knobs have about an inch before you get to the teeth and connect in order to tighten. The thick Jaws are almost too think and takes up room for screw length. The pictures I took you can tell it wont work on a series 2500 VA. I set the T Knob at the least I could before they fell off the screw. I'm surprised no one has complained until now. The other picture shows the parts with the 1 inch space inside the one T Knob

I’ve owned these kayak carriers for a year now and I’ve made 10 hour trips with 75lb kayaks in them with no problems at all. You will need longer straps than the ones that it comes with if your are going to be traveling on the interstate and want to have any extra trap to tie them to the cross bars.

Mounted two malone downloaders on am aftermarket rack on my ram 3500. The cross bars are 3.5 inches wide but the rack hardware accomidates this no problem. I had to purchase longer bolts as the cross bars are thick amd the bolts that came with the racks were not long enough. Used the rack this weekend and theey are amazing. Loadinf amd unloading our 17ft seawards was a breeze and they were very secure during transport. Great rack great price great service!!!!!

We have had these for about a year now and they are amazing! They fit on my factory crossbars, they fold down out of the way, and they are easy to take on and off through the seasons. They make putting on and taking down our 2 tandem kayaks super easy- we bought 2 sets. They have lasted this year with no complaints. We did invest in some ratchet downs vs the ones that come with these, because it's just easier, but other than that, these have been excellent with zero complaints.

These Malone kayak carriers really do the job. Paired with the Malone Telos Load Assist, getting our sea kayaks onto the topper of our Toyota Tundra is easy for this 70 year old. No more major lifting causing aggravation for my back. Tying down each kayak is quick and easy.

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


I'm very pleased with the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier. Installation was a breeze, much quicker than I anticipated. Our tandem kayak (13.5' long), easily slid into place, fit well and secure in the carrier, and the tie-downs made securing the bow & stern a cinch - and there was plenty of room for our paddleboard! The best feature is the ability to fold the carriers down when not in use - so much better than having to take the rack off after each use. The only disappointment I have with the product is the "universal fit mounting blocks". They are designed to fit a Malone roof rack with the rectangular cut out for the roof rack but my factory roof rack has oval shaped bars. The carriers do mount but they lean to one side. Overall, I'm very pleased and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a kayak carrier!

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


I used these on Toyota Sienna with the Malone aero cross bars. Like others have said, you will need longer bolts than provided to mount on the aero bars. I also used ratchet tie straps since I didn’t feel confident with the tie downs provided. (I had a 100+ mile trip coming up.) Overall great quality, price, and service from etrailer. The short bolts are the only thing stopping it from a 5 star rating.

The carrier installation was very straightforward and the directions were clear. Only took a hour to install both carrier racks and part of that time was readjusting the location on the cross rails. Have yet to try it out but am confident these will work well.

Second order from etrailer, first was for a hitch on the rav4 this one was for a kayak rack and lift assist. One reason for the initial and revisit are the videos. They are well thought out , provide enough info without being boring, and prices that are in line with any other retailer. I will do business with them again.


Comments
Great, a few things I would change though I would have the loops the straps go through without an opening they tend to pop off halfway through the loading procedure. The lifts are a real life and back savior. Had several people ask where I got them. I do suggest giving them a bit of a wipe with paste wax they can bind a bit otherwise

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


The Malone AirFlow 2 Roof Rack is the most ridiculous bargain I've come across in a long while. I'd been preparing myself to spend $4-$500 on a Thule. A product I was familiar with and had used in the past with great success with Volkswagen's. After some simple research, Malone kept coming up as a affordable, comparable alternative . These days when you see something that is literally less than half of what your planning to spend, your first thought is "too good to be true" or "you get what you pay for". After calling and consulting with Stacey at etrailer.com I purchased the system and COULD NOT be HAPPIER !! It took me less than 20 minutes to have it completely installed on my 2013 Tucson. The construction of the racks and hardware is top quality. My main use of the system will be hauling kayaks and canoes which this will far exceed. Other than the fact that I saved about $300, etrailer prides itself on customer service and that I can, and will attest to their claim. I called and had a bunch of questions before ordering, Stacey was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, patient, and most of all courteous !! There is no doubt that etrailer.com has become my new source for any towing or recreational needs for my vehicle.

I ordered these with the 50" cross bar and T-Slot install kit and they work great on my 2009 Forester. Only complaint is that they whistle pretty noticeably when you get up to speed. Love that they fold down. Cradles are super stable with 2 kayaks on top. So far very pleased and would recommend these for certain. Almost 3 months on back order but E-trailer folks were good about updating me on the status along the way and that was appreciated.

Works well for transporting kayaks on end. I transport two on a small SUV. My heavier fishing kayak seems to be slowing crushing the plastic on the bottom of carriers, but this doesn’t seem to be adversely impacting how they are used. The fold down option is worth the additional spend if you park in a garage.

Very impressed with these Malone carriers. Actually, I'm impressed with everything that I've gotten from Malone. On the roof of my '12 Jeep Liberty, I've got a set of Malone Airflow2 crossbars that attach nicely to my factory rails. Now, I've got two sets of these DownLoader carriers. The fit and finish is excellent and everything seems really solid up there. And of course, etrailer.com delivered quickly and accurately. I recommend.

While your tandem kayak sounds like it will be fine, larger kayaks also tend to be heavier which is why the arms were designed the way they are to prevent accidentally overburdening them.
