Thule Hull-a-Port XT 838


The Thule Hull-A-Port XT is an evolution of the popular Hull-A-Port. The XT version can be folded down flat when not in use to reduce drag and to fit into car garages. The Stylish Hull-A-Port XT is compatible with all popular roof bars including Thule SquareBar, WingBar, WingBar Evo, WingBar Edge and AeroBar


The padded J-Bar cradle protects and carries kayaks on their side. Carrying kayaks on their side save space and allow for a second carrier to be used or even a narrow roof box or cycle carrier, perfect for holidays and short trips.


The Hull-A-Port XT can be locked in a cradle position to carry 1 Kayak or it can be postioned in the upright position to allow two Kayaks to be carried, one either side.


The Hull-a-Port XT 848 is supplied with a pair of 4.00m Thule roof rack straps with protective rubber buckle covers to prevent buckle damage to your kayak. One set of Bow and Stern Tie downs are also included.
