Product Description

These Car Rack Pads are designed to fit around your vehicle’s roof rack crossbars. They provide a nice cushiony layer that sits between your boards and the hard roof rack so your boards don’t get damaged or dinged. No longer do you need to use towels and duct tape to wrap up your car’s rack to protect your board. These rack pads come preformed to wrap snuggly against the rack and installs very quickly with Velcro. 

The Car Rack Pads are sold as a set so that you can use them on both cross member tubes of your car’s roof rack. Each pad has extra strong Velcro that allows you to easily yet securely strap the pads on. This is a great feature because when you are not using the pads, you can quickly take them off to improve your vehicle’s gas mileage. 

Whether its surfboards, SUPs, or a kayak, we can all think of a favorite toy we wanted protected as we travel with it. These pads are filled with high density foam then wrapped in a weatherproof sleeve, so they are engineered to take a beating. You can rest assured that they will provide a soft and cozy place for your boards to be transported for years to come. 

Colors: We offer 3 color choices: black, palmint, and camo. The longer length roof rack pads are only offered in black. Please use the options drop down menu above to pick your color choice. 

Dimensions and Pad Shape: We offer a variety of sizes and shapes of rack pads. Understanding the shape and size of your car’s rack crossbars is key to ensuring that the rack pads your order will properly fit. There are two factors you want to consider: length and shape. 

Shapes: We offer a standard circular shape and an aero shape for our rack pads. You need to select the proper type not based on aesthetics, but based on what your vehicle has so you have a snug fit. If your car has circular tubing on the rack’s crossbar, then you need the standard circular padding. If your rack crossbar is flat or wing shaped, then you need the aero rack pad. 

Note: This product is for the aero shape. If you are looking for the round shape then please check out the Round Rack Pads

Length: We offer a standard and long version. We recommend the long length for longboards or wide shortboards. 

Dimensions:
Standard length = 17” 
Long length = 28” 

 

Q:
Does this fit Honda Element factory racks?
 
A:
These are pads for aeroshaped crossbars only. If your crossbars on your factory rack are round or square, you would these type of pads: round or square pads.
 
Q:
We have a Jeep Grand Cherokee and my husband ties our two boards onto the car roof rack already, will these help protect the boards and car better, are they necessary?
 
A:
Yes, roof rack pads will help protect your boards during transportation, and are recommended! You will need to know the shape of your roof rack's crossbars to know what type to get - some pads work for round crossbars, some work for round or square crossbars; and some fit "aero" crossbars, which is a different type of shape. You can find some more roof rack pad choices here, including these spacer pads that you can put between the bottom and top board for further padding/protection.
 
Q:
Will this fit Toyota fjcrusier?
 
A:
Our Aero Car Rack Pads fit crossbars that are aero-shaped; aero crossbars are usually flat or wing-shaped. So if your FJ Cruiser has that type of aerodynamic crossbars, these will work. If your crossbars are round or square in shape, you will need a different type, such as these ones that work for round crossbars, or these roof racks that fit round, square and oval crossbars. We don't have a guaranteed fit guide available from the manufacturers of any of these pads, for specific vehicles -- since what type of factory or aftermarket roof rack one may have on their vehicle may vary. So fit is based on the shape of the crossbars you have, to know if it will work.

Bought these to transport some surfboards to the beach on my factory aero racks. They attach easily, and work wonderfully with tie downs. I chose lockable Thule straps and the combo worked great. The pair I ordered turned out to be out of stock, but customer service proactively reached out to me almost immediately and we solved the problem! Can get these elsewhere but not with this kind of customer service! Highly recommend the product and storeyourboard
