Questions From Buyers
How wide should my rackpads be?
This is largely dependent on what you need to transport. An 18" Standard Rack Pad is wide enough to accommodate a single surfboard's width, with the option to stack them two high. If you need to accommodate more than the width of one surfboard, we recommend sizing up. Your options are 18", 28", 34" and 44". You will also need to check the length of your roof rack, as you might be limited in that regard. The 44" rack pads can fit up to four surfboards, stacked two wide and two high. As always, measuring your roof rack is the most important aspect. We always recommend going as wide as your roof allows, making as much of your crossbar padded as possible.
Do I need straps or tie downs for my Dakine rack pads?
Yes, you will need straps to secure your board. This is just the padded portion. You will want to find tie down straps long enough for your vehicle. Dakine offers a 12' and a 20' option.
Will the Dakine 18" Standard Rack Pads fit my crossbar?
This simply depends on the shape of your crossbar. Standard rack pads are intended for a round or square crossbar. If your crossbar is more flat and narrow, you will likely need an aero rack pad. Watch the short video above for an explanation on the difference between standard and aero rack pads. The 18" length is small enough to fit across short crossbars, but if you need more padded coverage, consider a larger size.
Should I buy two if I want two rack pads or does it come with two pads?
They are sold in pairs so by selecting a quantity of 1, you will receive two rack pads.
