      Comments about Yakima Racks Mako Aero Saddles:

      We looked at several different kayak mounts and found that the Yakima Aero Saddles best met our needs. We mounted cross bars on our tent trailer, and it is very easy to install the saddles on cross bars and the kayaks are extremely stable during tow. Easy off and on access for my wife and I. What is great is the product is adjustable to different widths of kayaks/canoes, and the saddles embrace the kayaks nicely for a secure fit. Glad we did our research. [...]
