Thule Hullavator Pro 898

The Thule Hullavator Pro 898 takes the hassle out of loading and unloading your kayak on to your car. The gas-assist struts lift and lower your kayak from the roof down by the side of your car, taking 18kg of the kayaks weight. This design means you no longer have to struggle lifting your kayak over your head in order to get it on to the roof rack which can be awkward and heavy, especially after a long paddle. The Hullavator Pro 898 simply allows you to mount it on the carrier at waist height and is the easiest way to load kayaks on to a vehicle.

The Thule Hullavator Pro 898 features padded contact points in order to keep your kayak protected during transport and is made from aluminium and double-coated steel to resist corrosion.

The Thule Hullavator Pro 898 is suitable for transporting kayaks with a hull width of up to 80cm and a weight of 35kg.
