The Malone DownLoader is Malone's premium J-style roof rack for kayaks. It is designed with every feature possible to provide low clearance, ease of loading, boat protection, and universal fit. This rack includes everything you need to have a complete kayak transportation system including tie down straps, bow and stern straps, mounting hardware, etc. The installation of the Malone DownLoader is super easy with their Jawz universal mounting adapter. This adapter allows for tool-free installation on round, square, and factory oval load crossbars.
The rack can fold down with a quick pull on the rack's release pins. This allows the rack to fold down nearly flat which is perfect for low clearances like garages and will also improve fuel economy. Each rack arm comes well padded with an adjustable padding that comes wrapped in a tough Nylon sleeve to protect your boat's finish. Another great feature about the DownLoader are the built-in boarding ramps. These eliminate the need to lift the kayak up and into the carriers. Instead, you can just set you boat up against the rack and slide your boat into place!
very good ad w/pictures & reviews great product!
Does the loading assist come with the carrier or is this an optional/add on feature?
This Malone J-rack for Kayaks does not come with the optional load assist; the load assist that works with it is sold separately, at this link: https://www.storeyourboard.com/kayak-roof-rack-load-assist-telos-xl/. Alternately, there are a couple of racks that have built in load assist features, such as this one, https://www.storeyourboard.com/kayak-roof-rack-with-load-assist-malone-seawing-stinger/, or this one: https://www.storeyourboard.com/universal-kayak-roof-rack-malone-autoloader/
