Product Description

The Thule SUP Roof Rack is an excellent way to transport your Paddle Board on your car, SUV, or truck. We all know the SUP boards are very large and bulky so how do you get it from your house to the ocean, lake, or river? The answer is with this SUP roof rack. The Thule SUP rack is designed to cradle your SUP and then has a locking strap to keep it nice and secure while you drive to your favorite paddling destination. The nice thing about the rack is it is big enough to hold 2 SUP boards, just stack them up on top of each other. 

If you are wondering how you get this on your car, truck, or suv: you need to have crossbars already. This is only the two rack pieces (one front and one back) that actually secure your SUPs. The great thing is that this SUP roof rack will fit almost all types of crossbars so you don;t have to have Thule bars. They will fit Thule aero and round bars, Yakima bars, and factory bars. If you check out the close up photos you can see that they accomplish this near universal fit with a rubber strap that conforms to the different bar styles. So if you have crossbars on your vehicle you are all set to get this rack and take your paddle boards anywhere! This rack is equipped with the Thule speed-link system for quick interchange with other Thule products. 

Another cool feature to this system is that it is lockable, featuring Thule's One Lock Keys, and the locks are included with every rack. There is a lock that locks the rack to the crossbars and there is also a lock that locks in the strap to secure your SUPs. The strap/webbing is also steel reinforced so it can not be easily cut. These features make for an extra secure rack. 

This roof top paddle board rack can hold boards up to 34" wide. The rack is expandable to adjust to different size SUP and surfboards. This is done by sliding the two halves together or apart. The strap that secures the top of the boards is adjusted with a spring loaded locking cam that means you slide the strap into the bottom bracket and then pull tight and you are done. The padding on the rack and strap offers weather resistant cushioning to protect your boards and stand up to the elements for years to come. 

The optional roof paddle rack securely holds your paddle next to you SUPs. A great option so you don't have to somehow slant the paddle across the entire car! If you would like to order the paddle rack, select from the drop down menu above.

So, you're not supposed to, but I have 3 SUPers and a kayak child- and a little jeep to put them on. This worked great; I had to put the kayak in an upright carrier but everything fit great!

Q:
Will they fit the crossbars of a 2014 dodge durango citadel?
A:
The Thule SUP Taxi roof rack has a near universal fit for factory crossbars, so if your 2014 Durango has factory crossbars, it should work.
Q:
Will this product -- the Thule SUP Taxi -- fit a 2008 jeep wrangler?
A:
The SUP Taxi has a near universal fit, for crossbars of all types. It adjusts to fit round and aero shaped crossbars, as well as most factory crossbars, and the crossbars don't need to be Thule crossbars. So unless your 2008 Wrangler has very unusual crossbars on it, this should work.
Q:
Will the Thule SUP taxi rack support a 35" SUP?
A:
The Thule SUP taxi will only work for boards up to 34" inches - while only an inch sort, there really isn't going to be any adjustment in there, for it to work for your board. An alternative in a hard rack system is this Hard SUP Roof Rack that can fit 1 to 2 boards on it; it has self-adjusting high grip saddles, that fit all boards.
Q:
Will this solution work for an F-One racing paddle board and a 2013 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab?
A:
The Thule SUP Taxi doesnotwork for 2 door Toyota Tacoma's that have regular cabs; it also doesnotworkfor Tacoma's with 4-door extended cabs. However, the manufacturer's fit guide lists it as working for 4 door Tacoma's with "quad cabs" that also haveraised rails. If the double cab is what they list as a quad, then it could fit, if it also has raised rails.

As for your racing SUP; the Taxi accommodates boards up to 34" wide, that is really the only fit guide they have for what size board will work on it. You can adjust it to fit different sizes, but only up to 34" wide
Q:
I have a 1998 chevy tahoe that doesn't have racks on the top. Will this fit my vehicle ?
A:
You would need crossbars on top of your roof, for this Thule SUP rack to attach to; if your roof is bare, it won't work. If your roof is bare, there are some removable/universal racks, such as these, that work by strapping through 4 auto doorways and have tie-downs to hold your boards, as an alternative. There are also removable crossbars, that work that way as well (running through your car's doorways), and which you can use a variety of roof racks with or tie-downs, to secure your boards.
Q:
Does this work for Toyota Tacoma 4 door or Toyota 4 runner?
A:
If your Toyota's have roof rack/crossbars on them, the Thule SUP Taxi should work on them; it has a near universal fit for most crossbars. If your vehicles don't have factory or other crossbars, you would need to look at other types of roof rack systems that don't require crossbars (instead, they run straps through 4 doorways), such as these inflatable ones, as one example
Q:
Will this item fit on a 2014 Mercedes ML550 SUV?
A:
Our Thule SUP Taxi Fit guide is not showing that specific model Mercedes - though it lists a series of "M" class Mercedes; so if that ML550 SUV is considered a M-class model, and has a factory roof rack, the fit guide shows that the Taxi would be compatible (for M-class factory roof racks for that model year, 2014). If it is not a M-class, I don't have it listed in our fit guide.
Q:
Will this fit a 2011 Toyota 4 runner?
A:
According to Thule's Fit Guide, the SUP Taxi fits 2011 Toyota 4 runners with factory roof racks. So if your roof racks were factory, it should work.
Q:
Is the price per unit or is front and back rack included? I have 2 SUP's that I need to transport side by side, do I need to order 4 units or 2 units? Thank you.
A:
The price is for a complete transportation rack system, to hold one SUP. If you need to transport 2 boards, you would order 2 sets, to hold your boards side by side. Note, each one is 37" long, so your rooftop crossbars would need to be long enough for two rack systems.
