Both products offer a convenient and secure way to transport surfboards on the roof of a vehicle.

Brilliant Simplicity:

The griddle pads of the Ho Stevie Soft Racks may not appear as substantial as the Curve’s, but they are of excellent quality. The one-inch wide straps are long enough to fit any vehicle and accommodate one to three surfboards. The buckles, encased in a thick rubber casing, protect the car’s bodywork from scratches and dents during usage.

In comparison, the Curve Lockdown straps claim to be even faster to assemble. We will explore this further in our head-to-head comparison.
