EvenKeel is a comfortable sit-in kayak carrier by the leader of the American roof rack Yakima.
Its main advantage is that you can slide the kayak comfortably on the car by yourself, thanks to the rollers in the rear of the carrier. In addition, the carriers are self-adjusting in all directions and thus adhere to every kayak very tightly!
Perhaps the biggest competitive advantage of all Yakima carriers is that they can be locked with a key. This way, you won’t have to remove and re-install the boot every time you go kayaking. It can even stand constantly on the bars in a folded position and be always ready for use!
Otherwise, this kayak carrier, as well as other Yakima kayak carriers are extremely easy to install on any type of factory bars without additional adapters: rectangular, square, wing type, oval. Only a pipe beam requires an adapter.
The set includes straps with buckles (for the bars – rubberized) and straps with buckles which can be tied to the nose and stern of the kayak (legal requirement in some countries).
For optimal safety, the distance between the crossbeams should be not less than 60 cm.
