All Rhino-Rack products were excellent. But I was afraid to tighten them up too much and risk breaking them on the tubular Darby single bar roof rack. They kept sliding outboard due to the downward pressure of the kayak. So I put a towel between the bottom of my lightly built kevlar kayak and the bar. The kayak wasn't held up by the Rhino brackets but was safely held from moving side to side, and the towel protected the bottom of the boat...10 hour road trip with some potholes, no damage.


Comments
Have only used it once for carrying my kayak. See my previous comment. Now my kayak sits comfortably in the Rhino-Rack cradles fastened to my floating dock. All is covered by a fitted tarp, so theres no water in the boat or sun damage to the boat or cradles. So easy and safe to launch and retrieve a lightly constructed kevlar boat!

I have a pretty big kayak to begin with, it holds it perfectly. Recently , i strapped a smaller kayak on top of mine. I was expecting the worst on this trip. But did not have a problem at all. Quality product.



- RR570

After attempting to mount the individual rack pieces using the “burglar proof” button head screws with the pin in the recess and the short hex wrench with the hollowed out end I discovered that no real burglar would want the rack but would rather have the kayak so the first thing I did after spending 10 minutes trying to insert the hex into the button head screws with the pin inside the recess and attempting to turn the bolts and continually being obstructed by the support pieces and the paint interference on the bolt heads with trying to get the wrench into the recess I knew it was going to be a long frustrating process so I threw them away and purchased new button head stainless steel bolts and a 4mm extended handle hex wrench to turn them. Smartest thing I ever did. You not only have to mount the rack initially but then you have to put the kayak on the roof and remount all pieces again to fit your boat. All kayaks are different to one degree or another. Having to move the individual support and retighten them with the boat on the rack is even more difficult to do than the initial mounting with these “burglar proof” bolts and hex wrench and you will be happy you threw them away before you started the entire process. Try it for yourself at first and then go get the alternate ones. Worth the little investment and stainless steel will not rust away when you want to remove the rack system in the future. Once the rack is on your vehicle and kayak in rack the tie downs supplied are very good quality. Make sure you use the recommended tie down locations and directions, two kayak body ties and ties at front and rear. Due to numerous kayak hull designs it would be nice to have each support pod have a horizontal swivel built into it so it readily conforms to the hull shape. The overall quality of the system should be the last rack you will have to purchase. I only had issues with the supplied bolts and hex wrench. I gave this rack system a three star because of the bolts and hex tool and the individual pods not swiveling and I haven't at this point transported the kayak anywhere so I am waiting to see how it handles long trips with wind loads and constant loading and unloading performances.

I love these kayak racks. Just got my second pair because I loved the first set so much. The straps are much better than most. They give you plenty of length. I cut mine to fit my needs because there was a lot of excess. Installation was easy with the provided hardware. Thanks Rhino Rack for such a great, well thought out product.

by:

I have owned one set of these carriers for years. I absolutely love the low profile look on top of my SUV. Unfortunately, I also had the need to pull a kayak trailer whenever I had company. Now, with this second set of roof carries, I can ditch all issues associated with maintenance and parking of the trailer. I’m so happy, happy, happy with this Rhino-Rack product.



- RR570
by:

These work well, though to keep my wood kayaks from scrapping along the bar while losding I glued a piece of rubber to the bar. When the kayak gets up far enough the keel is lifted up by the saddles.



- RR570
by:

These racks were super easy to assemble! My only complaint was that the measurements were off for my body style. Instructions had specs and measurements for a 2015 fit, but I have a 2017 Fit EX. This was fixable, I just added 2cm to each side when installing the crossbars to the legs, and it fit my roof perfectly.

I thought I ordered the RR580 which locks into the channel. I am pleased with the RR570, seems very sturdy and holds my kayak very well. Also they make ZERO noise even at highway speeds!



- RR570
by:

Gives me confidence and peace of mind when the kayak is mounted. The tie downs work great.



- RR570
by:

The carrier generally works well and I like that you can flip the carrier toward you if putting the kayak up from the side of the vehicle and then flip kayak and carrier to the mounted position. It's more difficult to mount the kayak from the rear of the vehicle. The carrier's rubber surface does not allow an easy slide up from rear to front, at least not for a fiberglass/gel coat hull. I actually installed two felt pads on the rear carrier to allow me to slide the kayak forward and this seems to work. Otherwise the carrier works well.


Comments
The rack attaches to the cross bars with Allen head type screws. This is no problem if you leave the rack on the crossbars but can be difficult if you frequently remove the rack.

These kayak carrier saddles cup the bottom of my kayak. They are easy to install and clamp to the rails firmly. The tie downs that are included to secure kayak to the rails have no metal to scratch vehicle or kayak. The bow and stern tie downs are plenty long to give you options as to where to attach to vehicle.


Comments
Still love how these carriers cup and mold to the bottom of my kayak. Once secure, kayak stays put.

Everything was excellent from start to finish. Geoffrey was very helpful on the phone and helped guide me in the selection of the appropriate kayak accessory for my specific crossbars. The order came quickly (about 4 days) and it was relatively easy to attach to my crossbars. I transported my kayak easily and without drama. The product is high quality and looks like it will be durable and have be useful for a long time.

I'm transporting a 17' surf ski on my station wagon. The Rino-Rack side loading carriers clamp down on my aero bars like they are one piece. The boat locks in solid and I have no movement after hours of travel on rough roads. I rear load on my truck racks, but side loading is mush easier on the car. Etrailer is unbeatable for price and shipping.

Very good racks, they stay on my roof very securely and I've not had any problems since installing them last year. Also, very easy to install, took less than 30 minutes . I highly recommend them, good quality roof racks at a very affordable price.

Have not removed them since I had them installed last year. The racks went through all kind of rough weather and still stay secured on my roof with no sign of deterioration, tough and durable roof racks.

This is a very sturdy rack. It fits great on my car and it's easy to use. My only issue was with the original installation. The instructions had an error with the placement of the rack feet on the crossbar. I used the dimensions given in the manual but they were off by 10 cm. I had to adjust the feet in 10 cm on each side of the crassbar for the feet to sit correctly on the roof of my car. A very minor issue. Overall, a great rack system. The single kayak kit was easy to install and works like a charm. Thanks Rhino Racks!!!!!

I love these little guys! I used them for the first time this weekend. I have a sprint kayak and they cradled my boat perfectly! I have been paddling for over 40 years and this was the first time I tied down my boat and felt really sure that it was going to ride securely on top of my SUV. They mounted super easily onto my factory roof racks on my GMC Yukon XL, just 8 screws total. I highly recommend this carrier for anyone who wants to protect their kayak while traveling!

by:

I found the rack mounts were easy to put on my CRV. I took my kayak out for the first time yesterday. The RR570 product did what they said they would do. The mounts and the four straps held my Kayak tight against my roof rack.

by:

Vendor was excellent in providing suggestions to carry our tandem 10' kayak on Inno racks. The Rhino-Rack RR570 solve the problem by creating a significantly easier way. Instead of flipping the boat over so flat side was down this cradles the sides with flexibility to have it grab the shape of the hull but yet does not bind when pushing the kayak onto them or unloading it. Slides pretty easy. Installation was great and these cradle arms are sturdy. Good Aussie product. A couple of suggestions: Get rid of that cheap hex head wrench for either one that really fits the bolt head (made a 5 minute job 30 minutes) or go to a phillips head. Terrible tool. Second, bolts could be threaded up the shaft a bit more for racks that like the Inno.

All the Rhino Rack products listed, ie Nautic kayak carrier,anchor straps,2500 series legs,and Vortex crossbars were shipped extremely quickly by etrailer, with exceptional customer assistance, and were all found to be of the highest quality materials. Installation was relatively simple with an assistant and the video by Rhino Rack was a valuable tool...once on my car, the system proved to be safe, secure and as sturdy as I could hope for. I would certainly recommend Rhino Rack systems in future, and will certainly rely on etrailer for any of my future needs.

I've owned this product for a year now,and originally bought it for an okt13,and just recently upgraded to a hobie outback. I've gotten a lot of uses out of this so far and have done a ton of kayaking.most of my trips I travel long distance from Pittsburgh to Virginia Beach.so far I must say I love these types of straddles! Very nice support and I like the fact that they allow you to mount your kayak upright,instead of upside down on the bar which results in scratching up the gunnels.definitley recommend this product!

  • Can Rola Cargo Basket and Kayak Carrier be Used Together
    The Rhino-Rack Nautic Roof Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # RR570 will only attach to crossbars and is not compatible with your Rola rooftop cargo basket like the Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504.
