More Details

The Thule 520-1 is a pair of space saving carriers designed to carry kayaks on their side. Most roof rack bars are not wide enough to transport multiple kayaks side by side unless the kayaks are "on edge" i.e. on their sides. The 520-1 uprights enable you to securely transport 2 kayaks side by side.

The Thule 520-1 also allows you the option to carry one kayak alongside a narrow roof box or a roof mounted bike carrier, perfect for holidays and weekend trips.

When not in use the upright bars of the carrier can be folded flat to reduce overall vehicle height and wind resistance. (This is particularly useful if your local car parks have height barriers).

The uprights are secured in the upright or flat position by a couple of tri-wing nuts on each bar.

The Thule 520-1 Kayak support is supplied with a T track adapter so that it can be fitted directly to the T track profile used on the Thule Aero, Wing and Slide Bars.

One pair of 2.75m Thule roof rack straps are supplied with the Thule 520-1. If you are carrying two kayaks, you will need to purchase a second pair of straps.

Note: If you are loading kayaks onto standard plastic coated bars, we recommended fitting roof bar pads for extra grip and padding. T Track bars have a rubber strip that does this without additional padding.
