What Are Roof Racks Used For?

Roof racks are the starting point for transporting equipment for your hobbies. You can attach roof boxes, bike carriers, ski carriers, and kayak carriers to roof racks.

You can use them for carrying:

Roof boxes - Extra space for all your gear

Bike racks - Bring bikes of any kind – mount the bike rack quickly and easily

Water Sport Racks - Mount racks for kayaks, surfboards and SUP boards.

Skis and Snowboard Racks – get ready for action in minutes.

Once you install the roof rack, you can use it for a wide range of cargo depending on your needs.

How do I choose a type of roof rack? 

Do you want a bar with an overhang for more space or a bar with no overhang for a sleeker look?

An Overhang Rack System is a versatile roof rack. You can use it with a variety of accessories - including roof boxes and roof top tents. A wider bar on the roof enables easy transportation of more gear. It makes loading cargo simpler and maximizes the use of the entire roof space.

A Non-Overhang Rack System is a sleek and sporty roof rack that integrates seamlessly with the rest of the car. A stylish solution for your bike rack or roof box, while keeping a narrower profile. Its smooth design provides a smaller usable area that you should consider when choosing your kit. 

How do I install a roof rack? 

Roof Rack Kits consist of a pair of roof crossbars, a foot pack, and, in some cases, a fitting kit. The bars support the weight of the rack. The feet attach to your specific roof type. The fitting kit ensures the rack fits your car model.

Installing roof racks on your car depends on the kind of vehicle you have, and the kind of rack system you have selected.

All kits come with detailed instructions to help get the job done in your garage or driveway. Simply follow the step-by-step instructions included for a hassle-free installation process.
