Whispbar, creator of the world’s quietest and most innovative roof rack system, is introducing its first boat carriers: the WB400 J-Cradle Kayak Carrier and the WB401 Saddle Roller Kayak Carrier.

These new Whispbar boat mounts bring together function and beauty in one complete package. Both carriers have innovative features that make loading kayaks virtually painless. In addition, they seamlessly integrate with the Whispbar rack system, which has been recognized for its unparalleled sleek and aerodynamic design that enhances both vehicle’s appearance and its performance.

”The beautiful style of the Whispbar boat carriers is like nothing on the market. It transforms them from utilitarian objects into things of beauty, while still offering premium performance and kayak protection,” said Garrett Barnum, Global Brand Director for Whispbar.

Its smart, aerodynamic design includes unique fold-down cradles, which makes them all but disappear when not in use, and innovative SmartLoad slide-out arms make loading a boat from the side effortless. Additionally, valuable crossbar space is conserved by carrying the boat on its side.

The WB400 features Whispbar’s QuickDock technology, which allows for quick and tool-free installation or removal. The Integrated Locking System locks the carrier to the roof rack system for added security.

The premium WB401 Saddle Roller Kayak Carrier system has been expertly crafted to enable paddlers to easily load their kayaks to the car roof. Integrated SmartLoad rollers make loading from the rear of the car quick and simple, while the adjustable padded saddles adapt to the shape of any kayak.

To add to its clean aesthetics and aerodynamics, the saddles fold down flat when not in use. Additionally, the attachment method uses QuickDock technology that allows the carrier to be installed or removed in seconds. The Integrated Locking System locks the carrier to the roof rack.
