Spend more time out on the water with the Thule Hull-a-Port Rooftop Kayak Carrier. This high-performance, easy-to-use kayak rack features a wide mouth J-profile for simple loading and unloading. Thick all-weather pads provide maximum kayak protection while durable straps keep your kayak firmly secured while in transit. Each kayak roof rack comes with all load straps and is designed to fit all Thule rack systems and most factory racks. Confidently transport your favorite water sport gear with a kayak carrier from Thule.
The Thule 835PRO is a premium vertical-oriented carrier designed for easy installation, economic use of space, easy loading and unloading on any vehicle and a folding fuel-efficient design. Featuring a folding J-profile, the 835PRO Hull-a-Port PRO provides for easy-to-access angled loading from the side of the vehicle, a maximum total of up to four kayaks per vehicle, depending on available space and a folding design that improves gas mileage by minimizing wind resistance.
Designed around two folding J-profile Hull-a-Port carrier assemblies, each attached to a roof rack load bar and containing four adjustable touchpoints of padding, the Hull-a-Port PRO allows kayaks of all shapes and sizes to safely lean on their sides, with the cockpit facing out. This vertical stowage position is safe, aerodynamic and secure in transport and poses no danger of warping to boats when they are stowed correctly. Vertical stowage and transport also efficiently uses the precious space atop your roof rack, allowing for up to four Hull-a-Port PRO carriers to be used at once on certain vehicles, or leaving room for other roof rack accessories to share space with the 835PRO. It's also easy to load and unload by 1-2 people. Mounted close to the side of a vehicle, kayaks are easily lifted and held in place by the padded J-profile Hull-a-Port design.
The Hull-a-Port Pro also contains simple, but substantial aerodynamic improvements over other similar carriers. The first of these is that when it is not loaded, a lift of a lever allows its two Hull-a-Port support assemblies to fold flat onto your roof rack. This instantly reduces wind resistance on moving vehicles, thus improving gas mileage. This functionality also allows for better clearance around low branches, garages and the like. In a similar fashion a pocket in the lower pad of the Hull-a-Port PRO can be used to securely hold excess lengths of straps used to tie off kayaks. Tucking straps away like this reduces the chances of them coming loose in transit and cuts down on noise they generate as wind blows by them.
