High-quality compact and durable V's made in the UK. Designed to carry your K1 or K2 directly onto the roof bars of your car or van. These V's have a shallower angle than our standard V-bars and can be quickly removed from your vehicle by loosening the plastic knobs. As the kayak is only supported at the width of your roof bars (see recommendations below), typically only the very middle, they are best suited to the stiffer and more robust laminates and thinner hull shapes. Recommended for Kirton K1s and K2s with a stability rating between 1 and 6. Please note, With K2s and wider boats, the provided bungees will be a bit tight so please purchase a set of cam straps with your compact V-Bar.

Slot /T-track type: to fit t-track roof bars with either 20mm or 27mm slots

Standard type: to fit 32mm x 24mm roof bars.

  • Easy mounting and dismounting (no tools required)
  • Easily stowable
  • Manufactured from corrosion resistant materials
  • Robust riveted construction
  • Tie-down bungees included
  • Made in England

Recommended setup

  • Minimum recommended spacing for K1 is 600mm.
  • Minimum recommended spacing for K2 is 850mm.
  • Always use at least one rigid strap/rope when carrying your boat for peace of mind
