Discount Ramps is proud to offer the Thule 887XT Slipstream XT Kayak Carrier! The Discount Ramps model number for the Thule 887XT Slipstream XT Kayak Carrier is 887XT. This Kayak carrier features an integrated, extendable sliding roller system capable of supporting up to 50 percent of your kayak’s weight, making loading and unloading a breeze for one person. Offering more vehicle fits and greater roll extension, as well as a better access quick release, the Thule Slipstream XT makes it easy for just a single person to load and unload a Kayak. The 887XT load assist roof rack mount works with most round and factory bars. All round bars and most of the factory roof racks will work with this system, and SUVs with big spoilers or vehicles with forward-mounted racks work great with the roller extension. This system fits Thule square and rapid aero bars, as well other round bars and most factory racks, and you must have roof rack cross bars for this system to work to its maximum potential.
This premium Thule 887XT load-assist kayak roof carrier will carry kayaks up to 36 inches in width with a maximum of 75 evenly distributed pounds. This system comes complete with padded saddles that give you four touch points for support and protection of your kayak, two load straps that feature padded bucks to prevent denting or scratching of your roof or the kayak, and the QuickDraw bow/stern tie-downs. The four touch points of padded support contour to the hull of the boat for added protection as well as having a sliding roller that extends beyond the back of your vehicle giving you maximum support. With the increased frame tubing and wall thickness the Slipstream resists bow impacts and heavy kayak loads for a stronger more durable overall carry. An extra one inch frame extension toward of the front load bar gives the front saddle adjustability for a much better fit. The great thing about this system is that Thule gives you a limited lifetime warranty.
