Don't bang up your hull.
Rigging your kayak to your roof can take a toll on your hull, so make sure you protect your boat with the Yakima RoundBar Crossbar Pads. These simple pads wrap around your crossbars to protect your sea or whitewater kayak during loading and travel. The Crossbar Pads are especially useful with any rack that lets your boat rest directly on the crossbars.

Great for SUP, Surf, or Kayak
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought these to fit my Yakima Round Bar roof rack system. I use both SUP hard boards and kayaks and needed a pair of pads to protect them. I chose these over other brands because I thought they would look good with the rest of my system and I am a big fan of Yakima. I got the 30" and they fit perfect and fill up the inner part of my roof rack system and cover the surface area of one SUP or kayak. They did a great job, my only complaint is that they aren't padded all the way around and they tend to flip around when you are putting your board or boat up there, so you have to be careful to make sure the pad side stays up. I recommend these, but if there is another option that is padded all the way around, I think I'd probably take a look at those, as well.
