    Yakima BowDown - The BowDown allows you to carry one boat on its side on top of your vehicle. The BowDown also folds down flat when not in use for better aerodynamics as well as height clearance. Thanks to the integrated boat ramp, it’s painless to load, too. HullGuard™ padding utilizes EVA foam, protecting your kayak’s finish and preventing boat damage. The J-Cradle design is perfect for carrying virtually any kayak. The Bow Down comes with heavy duty cam straps with buckle bumpers and bow/stern tie downs offering you everything you need to get you to the water. The new SteelCore™ construction utilizes a steel substrate encased in durable foam padding to ensure your rack lasts a long time. So share your applause as your new rack takes a bow!

    NOTE: These rack pieces fit round bars, square bars, and most factory installed racks. If you have questions, please call our Paddling Specialists at 1.800.99.4GEAR.
