Long Vbar with Removable Ends


Removable (detachable) ends are a very popular option. This allows you to remove the Vs by just pulling a simple tool-less pin. This option is great for gas mileage, parking garages (Vs add 10.5 inches to your crossbars), spouses who do not fully appreciate the beauty of my design etc. It is also great for the confused paddler who needs to swap ends to accommodate her SUP, marathon canoe,  round hulls (Ski, OCs, Shells).  Another underutilized benefit is the ability to buy multiple bars, and place them on multiple cars. This way, you just slide the ends into whichever car is last in the drive. The down side is that the Detachable rack can rattle a little when there is no boat loaded. And, the ends are a little cantankerous to store. I use a Classic rack for everyday hauling, and keep 3 other Detachable bars on the roof for whatever comes down the pike. The standard bar is 6 feet with one foot ends for a 8 foot rack. (please see the Hatchback Special if you have a lift-gate). If you are hauling a tandem, or any boat over 22 feet, leave a note when ordering, and I can ship up to a 8 foot bar. Contact me for bars longer than 8 feet (racks longer than 10 feet with ends in).

Important Fit Notes:

Standard hardware fits most crossbars, including Aerobars. However, we can make hardware for anything. Please leave a order note (at the bottom of the checkout page) if your crossbars are more than 3.5 inches wide, or 1 inch tall?


Is this going on a hatchback or short SUV?  The bar should be centered on your crossbars. Your hatch however, may contact the bar when open. You can move the bar forward of center up to a foot, but no more. Consider a shorter bar (7 feet is plenty long for a 21 foot boat). Ideally, please consider the Hatch Back Special to minimize this.


Is your boat wider than 18 inches?  OCs, rowing shells and full competition kayaks fit best in standard Vs. Some intermediate surfskis fit better with extra wide Vs, and usually just in the back. Boats like V8, V7. V6, 520, Eze, SR, S18, Bluefin etc. Not sure? list your boat in the order note at the bottom of this page. Cliff will guide you.
