Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Have a hard time loading your ‘yak, especially with worn-out arms after a long day on the water
  • Park your car in a garage and would rather just fold down the rack instead of taking it off every time
  • Get annoyed with strapping down your kayak and want to speed up the process with the help of a strap guide

No, if you:

  • Have thicker aero-style bars which may need longer bolts for the rack to fit
  • Leave the rack on your roof while you’re out paddling and worry about it getting snatched

Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - J-Style - Folding - Side Loading - MPG114MD

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (77 Customer Reviews)

These J-style cradles make it easy to transport 1 kayak on your roof rack. Built-in boarding ramps help to load a kayak from the side of your vehicle. Padded arms fold down when not in use. Clamp-on installation to most crossbars. Tie-downs included.

- MPG114MD

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

- MPG114MD

These racks are easy to install and loading our 40 and 50 pound kayaks is easy as well. We hauled over 1500 miles this year, many at max highway speeds, with no issues. All was snug, quiet, and safe. But, always a but, right away, the plastic strap guides popped right off (1 or 2 disappeared). Some black electrical tape fixed that. And the black plastic/vinyl coating on the mounting brackets cracked and peeled off right away too. More tape. However, both Etrailer and Malone were exceptionally responsive to my complaint and suggestions.

- MPG114MD

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!

- MPG114MD

These attached easily to our roof rack and worked well with the downloader rails. The straps that are included are not as well made as our old Thule straps which have much more padded protection around the buckle, so we will continue to use the Thule straps. The attached strap guide on top of the carrier bar is split for some reason which allows the strap (either brand) to slip out. Again, the Thule kayak carrier has a top threading attachment that works better.

- MPG114MD

Great product. I can load and unload the kayaks by myself, but still need a step stool to lift the kayaks over the ramp and into the Monroe Downloader J rack on my Honda Pilot. Also, even with the strap holders at the top of the rack, I found the straps twist — not sure if it makes any difference, but for strength I try to get the twists out before cinching the straps. Overall, I’m very happy so far (one trip) and I really like the service from trailer— very attentive and helpful.

- MPG114MD

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

- MPG114MD

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.

- MPG114MD

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!!!!!

- MPG114MD

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.

- MPG114MD

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!

- MPG114MD

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.

- MPG114MD

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.

- MPG114MD

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.

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

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 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 has become my new source for any towing or recreational needs for my vehicle.

- MPG114MD

Great racks, Noah was so helpful with everything, he was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. ordering was so easy. 2 sets of racks will fit Xsmall crossovers Like my 2019 Hyundai Kona. You will not be disappointed with these racks or company.

- MPG114MD

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.

- MPG114MD

Very nicely made. Better quality than the Thule competitor and cheaper too. Looks like it will hold up well to long term use.

- MPG114MD

This system is extremely useful for larger / heavier kayaks. I can load my 13 foot dual seat kayak onto my Suburban by myself with this system. Would definitely recommend.

- MPG114MD

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.

- MPG114MD

Not just is the product awesome the service and speed in which I got the item was amazing as well. This is now my goto spot for trailer and towing needs.

- MPG114MD

Absolutely love these kayak J racks. Easy to install and the best part ever is that they fold down and I can now get my vehicle in the garage. Very fair price and fast shipping. Highly recommend this company.

- MPG114MD

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.

- MPG114MD

Great product and great customer service. Very sturdy carrier with the ability to fold for low profile.

- MPG114MD

Installation instructions need improvement. They have black and white photographs. It would help if they were in color. Also, it would help if there were multiple views for each step, not just a single view. Some of the written instructions were vague and unclear. Two different length mounting bolts were provided but instructions did not specify which to use. I installed my DownLoader with the AirFlow 2 cross bars. Even the longer 70 mm bolts provided I feel are too short. I would prefer more thread engagement. While these do fit the AirFlow 2, it seems a little bit of an awkward match. The carrier brackets have a square notched cutout which appear designed for square bars instead. These worked for me, but I’m not in love with this system.

- MPG114MD

I haven’t put them on yet as they were just delivered. They appear to be very well made. I’ll follow up after I use them

  • What is the Difference Between Curt Roof Rack Crossbars and Thule Roof Rack with Evo Raised Feet?
    I wouldn't say that you're missing anything; the Curt Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails # C18118 are a solid, low cost roof rack option that looks great. When you look at them compared to something like the Thule Roof Rack with Evo Raised Rail Feet # TH711220 and # TH710401 the differences are extremely subtle and may not matter to a lot of consumers. Curt is primarily a company known for making trailer hitches and towing products, so roof racks aren't exactly their specialty. When it comes...

    That's a great question and you've clearly put a lot of thought into it. And for your 2014 Ford Escape with raised rails I highly recommend the 58 inch Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216. The reason I recommend the longer bars is because they make kayaks much easier to load, particularly two kayaks, because they will be closer to the edge of your vehicle, so you don't have to try and contour your body to lift the kayaks up while bending to maneuver them on the roof. Longer crossbars are...
