My kayak has a rigid hull and a relatively flat bottom under the cockpit where the supports would go. These pads would be very unsuitable for a kayak with a clear "keel" line running the length of the hull, which would be characteristic of most sit-inside kayaks with polyethylene hulls.
I say the above (as my photos illustrate) because the foam used inside the ballistic nylon covering is very stiff or firm. The photos show how little deflection occurs with a 55-pound fiberglass/kevlar sea kayak sitting on them, that is, not very much. This would be especially problematic for heavy kayaks with a polyethylene hulls where the plastic is soft and susceptible to denting. Still, if you keep the kayak up there only for a short time for local paddles, it would be okay, but not for long trips or where you intend to keep the boat on the cartop overnight.
The shape of the pads is wrong for kayaks because it isn't curved so as to distribute the weight of the kayak over a large enough surface area. The stiffness of the foam doesn't allow the foam to deflect enough to "cradle" the hull. This in turn leaves the boat vulnerable to twisting when the vehicle turns or in crosswinds. The shape of the pads is just not well-suited to transporting a kayak hull. It would be great for surfboards and paddleboards however because they have flat bottoms and are significantly lighter than a kayak.
The ballistic nylon covering is tough and obviously durable, but it's also slippery, which also contributes to vulnerability of the boat to twisting on top of the car if not carefully guyed. If not adequately cradled by the foam, a kayak fishtailing on the roof of the car at highway speeds, in the wind, can be unnerving if not dangerous.
For transporting kayaks on a cartop with standard crossbars, I'd recommend 18" wide "Riverside" foam kayak blocks, available on Amazon or from REI for about $40. These are wider to distribute the weight of the boat better, and they're curved to cradle the boat to better resist the boat sliding sideways and twisting around in crosswinds. They're not as convenient to put on and take off as these Cor pads, and the foam is vulnerable to tearing (because it's bare foam without a covering) if not handled carefully. I kept the Cor pads reviewed here for short jaunts out to the local lakes, but I wouldn't take them on long trips, through windy places, or where I intended to keep the boat locked up on the roof overnight. They're good if you use them right and bad if you don't.
