The Malone Downloader is one of our most popular J-Bar style kayak carriers. They offer great support for a variety of sit-in and sit-on-top kayaks, and fold down easily when not in use! No more worrying if you have removed them when you are entering a car park!
The front plate lets the kayak slide up, to ease loading, while also allowing the use of the Malone Telos Load-Assist system (available separately).
The Malone Downloader will fit onto most roof-rack crossbar styles, whether they are standard square bars or various oval " Aero" shaped bars using the including fitting kits. We also sell fitting kits that will mount the Downloader J Bars using the slide track in the top of most bars (available separately).
The carriers are constructed of aluminium corrosion proof frames with replaceable paddling to protect your kayak on the base and frame. Moulded holders keep the straps in place.
We love the Malone Downloader at AS Watersports, it's easy to fit and remove, and having multiple bar mounting options keeps it future-proof if you ever change vehicle. Add in the easy folding mechanism and the extra accessories available, they are our top pick of the selection.
Note: The base of the carrier has a rectangular "cutout" that has been included for square cross bar fit. This "cutout" does not effect the fit or function of the carriers when installed to round or oval shaped cross bars.
Note: All Malone carriers come with two lengths of installation hardware (hex bolts). Cross bars can vary in thickness and having two lengths to choose from allows the consumer to select the best fit for their application. We recommend that the unused set of hardware be retained for future use with a different vehicle or cross bars.
