Recommended Kayak Carrier and Roof Rack for 2015 Subaru Forester with Side Rails


I have a 2015 Subaru forester with factory raised side rail. Im looking for a kayak carrier total system. I kind of like the Yakima system with the rollers in the back and the dock hands to the front. I that a good system? do you have any other suggestions? what part would I needs rails black / locks / etc?? Cost ??


Expert Reply:

If you need to transport only one single kayak of no more than 75-lbs total weight then perhaps the easiest option in a rear-loading carrier is the Yakima HandRoll # Y04082-2 along with SKS lock core kit # Y07202.

In a compatible roof rack you have many options, shown on the linked page, but for both weight capacity and value I suggest the Rhino-Rack Vortex rack that features quiet aerodynamic bars. This rack has 49-inch load bars and a 175-lb weight rating. Order parts # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX100. An install video is linked for you.

Costs appear on each items page and in your shopping cart.
