The Nautic 580 is the next generation in side loading kayak cradle design and technology. Featuring a unique "secure core" hidden, lockable cover plate, you are now able to lock your cradles to your crossbars, minimizing the risk of theft. These carriers come complete with 4 santoprene rubber pads designed to cushion your kayak and for ease of side mounting. Compatible with all current roof rack systems that feature a bar channel, these cradles are not only stylish and low profile, but simple to use. Four tie down straps are also included, a longer set for securing the front and rear of the kayak to the vehicle and a padded set to secure your kayak to the cradles. Competitively priced and the first of its kind, The Nautic 580 is a perfect addition for this summer.
