Convenient and aerodynamic. This version of the V-Bar boasts easily removable ends. This means you can leave the 7ft bar on your car as a permanent fixture, saving you precious minutes every time you want to take the kayak out. The kit comes with two standard U-Bolts or T-slots and two bungees that can be looped over the pegs on the Vs. It is advisable that one rigid strap or rope also be loosely tightened around the centre of the boat, to safeguard against the rare occasion where the boat may be lifted in strong winds.
The bar profile is 1.5in square.
The standard V's are set at an angle of approximately 90 degrees with a length of 12inches
The shallow V's are set at an angle of approximately 120 degrees with a length of 12 inches. Generally, boats with a stability of 6 or higher will benefit from one shallow V at the back. Stability 10 racing boats are often best with two shallow Vs. Note that very wide touring-style boats will not be suitable for this racking system.
Equipment supplied with V-Bar: Two standard bolts and two bungees.
