By far the worst thing about going out on the water is loading up your kayak or SUP on top of the vehicle. Thankfully that's a thing of the past with Yakima's ShowDown. This is the first load-assist mount on the market to handle both SUPs and kayaks and it takes the hassle of loading and unloading heavy boats and boards a breeze, especially with tired arms after paddling around a body of water for most of the day. By removing the pins, the mount quickly and easily tilts down up to two feet from the top of the vehicle, where you would then secure your boat or board with the integrated strap ties. Then you gently raise it up as it pivots to the top of the vehicle. Once loaded your vessel is secure for the ride. It uses a universal mounting system so it works with any bar shape and at only 21lb it's super lightweight and can handle up to an 80lb load.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
