Video Transcript for Yakima Aero Crossbar Pads Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Yakima pads for the aero style crossbars. This is going to be 20" long, part #Y07412. These also come in 30" long as Y07413.The Yakima pads for aero bars are a simple solution for carrying your standup paddle boards, your surf boards, your canoes or your kayaks on the roof of your vehicle to your destination. While these pads come in a quantity of two, they do not come with the tie downs necessary to secure your loads so you will have to find those in Yakima offers a wide variety of straps to do this.The foam padding is gonna help protect your standup paddle boards or boats from scratches or abrasions once it's being installed. The 20" length for our pads is perfect to fit most standup paddle boards and kayaks.

The anti-slip material at the top will also keep your gear in place while you install it as well and when you strap it down. This is easily less than a five minute install thanks to the hook and loop straps that wrap around your roof rack system. This'll fit around the core bar or JetStream Yakima crossbars as well as most factory roof racks or most other aerodynamic style crossbars. The pads measure 20" long by 3" wide by 2" tall.When comparing this with other roof pads, one that comes up is gonna be the Swagman Vapor Surf and Standup Paddle Board pad for Aero Crossbars, part #S65160. The biggest difference between these two is that with the Swagman, it is primarily designed to work with both surfboards and standup paddle boards, not kayaks or canoes.Now that we've gone over some of the features of the pads, let's go ahead and show you how they work.

You first want to open up all the hook and loop straps on the bottom here so we can wrap it around our bar. So we set this on our bar, make sure the thing setting over it. Then we'll go underneath and connect up our hook and loop straps. Make sure we go as tight as possible so we don't get it moving around as much. And we'll repeat this for our other pad as well.Next we can put our standup paddle board in place.

Make sure it's even on both sides then you can take whatever tie down straps that you may have and secure it to your roof. Alright, we are now ready to hit the road and show you how it looks and there you have it for the Yakima pads for the Aero style crossbars, part #Y07412.

Easy to install and remove. Work great on thicker racks, but slide around on skinny racks.


Thank you you service its excellent!!!!


Much handier than the styrofoam pads I was using


These look and fit great. I normally keep my yakima forklift on my OEM yakima whispbars so the 20" fits perfect for carrying around my surfboard.

Very happy that etrailer has parts for Yakima racks. My assorted watercraft can now be taken on the Hiway without worrying about them flying off. Stellar customer service!


Not as advertised. And then e trailer had me pay for the return shipping. These pads are not 3” tall, they are 1 1/2 inch tall. Bad company that does not back their guarantee.


The pads don't fit tightly enough on my cross bars and spin when I load my boards. That puts the padded portion where it shouldn't be. I have to fool around with them to get them to line up right.


Order process was smooth and excellent customer service. Items arrived as promised in perfect condition. Thank you!!

  • How to Use Yakima Kayak Pads
    The Yakima kayak pads, part # Y07412 are used for short distance transports of kayaks and surf boards. They don't provide any side-to-side support for the kayak, so I don't recommend using them on longer trips. They are mostly used to protect the boards and boats while they are installed on the crossbar.

  • Picture of Yakima Crossbar Pad Carrier Y07412 Installed
    I attached a picture that shows a single kayak carried on the Yakima Kayak Pad Carrier part # Y07412 but we don't have a picture of two kayaks on a vehicle with two sets of this carrier. It would be just a matter of having two of these side by side.

  • How to Carry a Surfboard on a Motorhome Using Foam Pads
    We do have foam blocks like the Yakima # Y07412 which need to be installed on aero-style crossbars. For a generic roof rack fit we carry systems like the Yakima HardTop SL # Y01618 which will do an excellent job at carrying your surfboard. A whole roof rack system can be a little bit tricky to mount on a motorhome so the SeaSucker Surfboard Carrier # 298-BX1806 might be more of what you are looking for. This kit features the same type of foam pads and uses powerful suction cups to secure...

  • Option to Carry a Kayak and SUP on a Roof Rack at the Same Time
    The combination of the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier w/Tie-Downs # TH834 and the Thule SUP and Surfboard Pads # TH846000 (30") that you mentioned is likely the best scenario for carrying your kayak and stand up paddle board (SUP). There is not a single rack that can handle both at the same time. Most racks require that the rack be in a different configuration for the SUP rather than the kayak. Depending on how wide your cross bars are, we also have the Yakima Crossbar Pads for Aero Crossbars...

  • Padding Needed for Carrying Kayak with Load Extender
    We do have a variety of options to help protect your kayak. These range from the foam blocks # MPG152 that you referenced to the linked page of crossbar pads like the Yakima part # Y07412 which are 20" long. If you can let me know what load extender you are using I can make more of a specific recommendation.
