Thule Hullavator Pro 898

The Thule Hullavator Pro 898 is a lift assisted water sports carrier that takes the strain out of loading and unloading your kayak on to your vehicles roof rack. The Hullavator Pro uses gas-assisted struts that lift and lower 18kg of your kayaks weight allowing you to load you kayak single handed. It has double extending arms that lower your kayak down by up to 1 meter so that you can load or unload at waist height, no need to stretch up and struggle to reach your kayak.

The 8 padded supports will cradle your craft and prevent damage during transport while the included Thule QuickDraw bow and stern tie-downs ensure your kayak will be secure during transport.

The Thule Hullavator Pro 898 can carry one kayak up to 80cm wide and weighing up to 30kg and up to two carriers can be fitted per vehicle.

Note: The Thule Hullavator Pro 898 is designed for use with the Thule Pro Bar roof rack. Click here to see our range of Thule Pro Bars.
