Nothing holds your boards better
Mobilize your SUP boards with the strongest, simplest and most protective soft racks you can buy.
LOCKDOWN: The patented 'lockdown' system uses a single loop to cocoon around your SUP boards and down onto vehicle roof, eliminating SUPs lifting up and down or moving side to side, even in the most extreme conditions such as windblasts from oncoming trucks.
VEHICLE PROTECTION: 1" foam padding provides a soft and protective layer of cushioning between SUP boards and your vehicle roof, with a soft inner neoprene lining for maximum board protection.
SUP BOARD & RAIL PROTECTION *new and improved SUP Rail protection* a great new feature, the 1" foam padding between board and vehicle has been extended in length to now reach all the way around your board..... and beyond the RAILS! The 1" foam barrier now cocoons all the way around your board like a protective padded cushion - and now also sits between your SUP boards rail and the webbing strap which pulls down tight on your board. This extra cushioning protects your board from direct contact with the straps that secure it by providing a padded buffer between your SUP rail at point of contact where the straps get pulled tight. Like no other softrack, the Lockdown SUP Softrack now also reduces wear, pressure and damage to your rails. Choose Lockdown for ultimate SUP board protection and sturdy attachment to the roof of your vehicle!
SIMPLICITY: Quick and simple to use with unique single tightening point. Hint for first time use it may be easier to position racks around boards on ground first, prior to moving to roof of vehicle
COMPATIBLITY: Lockdown Racks are compatible with bare roofed vehicles (with no fixed racks) that have either 4 opening doors, or a combination of front doors and two rear opening windows. Lockdown Racks are also compatible with roofed vehicles fitted with 2x roof rails which run parallel to side of car. The roof rails do not need to be fitted with cross bars.
CAPACITY: 1-2 SUP boards (note photo shows Surf version of the product with 3x surfboards - the SUP version will take 2x SUP boards)
You need to get your boards there in one piece so whatever you do, don't cut corners on your racks.

nb like all soft racks if you experience any noise from windage while driving, simply add 2-3 twists to each strap and noise will be eliminated
IF YOU ARE TIRED OF TIE-DOWN STRAPS MAKING MARKS IN THE SIDE OF OF YOUR SUP'S, THIS IS THE SET UP FOR YOU! EASY TO TO SET UP UP AND THEY SECURE YOUR SUP(S) TIGHTLY TO WHATEVER BASE YOU ARE USING. THE NEOPRENE DESIGN ACTUALLY WRAP AROUND THE SUPS SO NO STRAPS TOUCH THE SIDES OF THE BOARDS (UP TO 2 SUPS). IF SECURING MORE THAN 2 BOARDS, THE STRAPS WOULD BE TOUCHING THE SIDES OF THE BOARDS.
