Inno Roof Bike Racks Review - 2015 Mazda 5

Today in our 2015 Mazda 5 we're going to be taking a look at the inner tire hold part number INA389. As you can see we had the bike loaded so you'll get an idea of what it will look with your bike. I'm going to step up here so we can talk about our rack and how it's attached. The nice thing about this bike rack is that there's no frame contact it's being held in place just by the tires themselves so if you have a more expensive bike or you don't want any of the paint to get damaged this is a great bike rack for you. To get our bike rack on and off you want to have this unlocked first of all. Open it up.



Inno Roof Bike Racks Review - 2015 Mazda 5

Today on 2015 Mazda 5 we're going to be taking a look at the Inno Multi Fork Roof Mounted Bike Rack, part number INA392. As you can see we already have a bike loaded up on our Inno Multi Fork, so you can an idea what it would look like with your bike. To start off we'll go over how it attaches to our rack. At the back you'll have this strap, it secures into the bracket right here, and release with the button. It also has a button on the other side, so if you've got a bike with taller wheels you can adjust it so that it sits a little higher. I don't if it's by design, or it just is a happy accident, but there's a hole on this side of the strap, and then a little notch on the other, so you can pull it down like that, which I think is kind of cool, it's kind of nice. It gives you a nice grip around the strap so you can get it on there pretty tight.



Inno Roof Bike Racks Review - 2015 Mazda 5

Today on 2015 Mazda 5 we're going to be taking a look at the Inno Fork Lock 3, Roof Mounted Bike Carrier, part number INA391. As you can see we already have a bike loaded up onto to our carrier, so we can an idea of what it would like with your bike up. I'm going to open up the door here so I can step up and show you some of the features of our bike rack, how it all attaches. At the back we've got a strap and it is secured by this little lever here. There's also a lever on the other side, so if you have a taller wheel, like a fat tire, or any of your mountain bikes, it can still accommodate that larger wheel size. It only comes out on this side though, there's a little stop on the other side of the strap so won't come out that other way. On the front we'll have a lock, and this will attach into our cover so that it keeps all our housing up here at the front secure. Our bike is secured by this skewer.



Inno Roof Bike Racks Review - 2015 Mazda 5

Today on our 2015 Mazda 5, we're going to be taking a look at the Inno Slim Fork Roof Mounted Bike Carrier, Part Number INA387. As you can see we already have a bike loaded onto our carrier, so you can get an idea of what your bike would look like up there. This is a pretty unique style carrier, so we'll go over some of the features and how it goes together. To start off we'll look at our back tire here. This is secured by this clamp. You just have to turn the wheel and it'll push this little level guide up against your wheel to maintain pressure and keep your wheel in place.



SportRack Roof Bike Racks Review - 2015 Mazda 5

Today on our 2015 Mazda Five, we're going to be taking a look at the SportRack Downshift Roof Mounted Bike Rack. Part number SR4623. As you can see we have a bike loaded up on our rack just so you can get an idea of what it would look like with your bike up there. To start off I'm going to just open up the door so I can still get up and show you what's going on. At the back we're going to have just a simple strap with a buckle that will keep our back wheel in place. Just like any strap, it's just going to come up, go back through itself. This also sits with a little cradle that'll butt up against the back of your bike to keep it from moving front to back.



Rola Canyon Roof Bike Racks Review - 2015 Mazda 5

Today on our 2015 Mazda 5, we're going to be taking a look at the Rollo Canyon rooftop mounted bike rack, part number 59404. As you can see, we already have a bike loaded up onto our roof. Just so you can get an idea of what it would like with yours. We've got a strap on the back that will attach to our wheel and this is just a hook and loop strap. We'll just show you how this attaches. So this will go through a hook that's on the far side here and you'll just loop it through that, pretty simple.



Kuat TRIO Roof Bike Racks Review - 2015 Mazda 5

Today on our 2015 Mazda 5, we're going to be taking a look at the rooftop-mounted Kuat Trio. This is part number TR02. As you can see, we have a bike already loaded up onto our rack.

Inno Roof Cargo Carrier Review - 2015 Mazda 5

Today in our 2015 Mazda 5, we're going to be taking a look at the Inno Shadow Series cargo box, part number INBRA1250BK. As you can see we have it mounted up on our roof rack system but we still have one more foot to place in there. This is a memory mount which is exclusive to Inno design and the nice thing about this is you can set it with this little gray turn wheel to the width of your crossbar so whenever you tension that cam lever over, it stays at that same spot so you don't have to keep tightening down every time you use your cargo box. You just open and close. Now that we've seen that, let's go ahead and open our box up. This is a locking box so it will have a key, just turn it to the unlock position, press in the button and it will open up. So we have all out other feet in place this is just the last one we have to put in there.



Inno Roof Cargo Carrier Review - 2015 Mazda 5

Today on our 2015 Mazda 5, we're going to be taking a look at the Inno Shadow Box part #INBRA1170CA. This is a box with 11 cubic feet of space. It has the memory mount, which are these little feet right here. The nice thing about these is that they have a little gray tensioner here so you can set this to where it'll remember how wide your bars are. Once you set that gray tensioner and then cam 00:00:38 the lever over, it will stay there. As you take it on and off, you don't have to tighten it down every time. Now that we've seen that, we will go ahead and open up our box with our key.

Today on our 2015 Mazda 5 we're going to be doing a test fit of the ROLA Rooftop Mounted Cargo Basket. This cargo basket is going to be part number 59504 measuring 52 inches long, 40 and 1-half inches wide with a depth of 6 inches and sturdy steel construction offering a 130 pound weight capacity. As you can see we already got the two front feet in place as well as the rear passenger side. We're going to show you how to place on that last one on the drivers side. That way you can see how it's done since they all go on the same way. First thing you're going to need to do, once you get your rack on top of your vehicle, is place your spacer between your basket and your cross bar system. This will fit most all of your roof rack systems whether you have elliptical bars, arrow bars, factory roof rack systems, even square round and other types of bars.

As you can see we've already gotten our bike up here so you can see how it's going to look and how it's going to fit. This is going to be part number RBC036. Let's go ahead and show you how the bike comes off since you've seen how it looks when it's up on the vehicle. First we'll start off by removing the rear-wheel safety strap. Now it's always good to make sure that you have close to an even amount of distance between your spokes so when you pass through your strap you don't damage your wheels. Press in the button and push it out until you can grab a good fingerhold on it and you can pull it out the rest of the way.

As you can see, I've already got the front installed on the Mazda5 here. Let's go ahead and do the rear together. We'll come over here to our little white table, and I'm going to put the foot pad and the fit kit together on our aero blade. First thing we'll do is, let's go ahead and remove the end cap here on our aero blade. We'll just turn that over to get set up when we get that put together. Let's go ahead and grab our plate and our pad.

This will fit most all of your roof rack systems, whether it's going to be your factory roof rack system, your elliptical, your aero, round, or square, or any other kind of crossbar that you may have, it will most likely fit with it's different adapters and pieces to the kit. One thing you will need to do before you get it up and this is going to be a little helpful hint or tip is going to be to adjust your feet, these metal feet using the two allen bolts there. You're going to adjust those tot he center of your crossbar spread. Say if you have a 32 inch crossbar spread, you're going to adjust the circles here, measure them 32 inches apart and then tighten them down.

Here's what our wiper blades are going to look like once they're installed. This is our frame-styled wiper blade design.

Built into the wiper blade itself are friction reducers for a quite, effortless wipe.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2009 Mazda 5 - Hidden Hitch

Today on this 2005 Mazda 5, we're going to show you the Hidden Hitch Class One, inch and 1/4 Receiver Hitch, part number 60841. This is what the hitch looks like when it's installed in our Mazda 5. If you notice, we're looking from the bottom so we can actually see it. From looking from the outside at a normal distance, you won't see much at all. What you do see will be this inch and 1/4 receiver opening, right here. Going farther back, we have 1/2 inch diameter hitch pin hole for the hitch pin or your favorite locking pin.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2009 Mazda 5 - Draw-Tite

Today on this 2009 Mazda 5, we're going to show you a Draw-Tite Sportframe Class I 1-1/4" Receiver Hitch, part number 24773. This is what the hitch looks like once it's installed on our Mazda 5. If you notice we're looking from the bottom so you can actually see it. Looking from the outside at a normal distance you won't see much at all.

Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2009 Mazda 5

Today on the 2009 Mazda 5, we're going to show you the Curt Cargo Carrier for 1 1/4 and 2 inch hitches, part number C18110. First we're going to go ahead and show you the bushing that converts this from a 1 1/4 shank up to 2 inch shank. Basically just snaps into place and when it is inside the hitch it will hold together. However in this case in our Mazda 5 has the class 1 1/4 receiver hitch, we don't need this bushing. Let's go ahead and just pop it off to the side. Let's go ahead and put it into our receiver hitch and we'll line up the threaded hole with the existing hole in the hitch. Okay now we'll go ahead and put our hitch pin or bolt, we'll go ahead and put it in and we'll thread it down.



Yakima RocketBox Pro 14 Rooftop Cargo Box Review - 2013 Mazda 5

Today on our 2013 Mazda 5, we're going to be test fitting the Yakima Rocketbox Pro 14. A rooftop cargo box with 14 cubic feet of storage space in black. Part number Y07192. Without Yakima Control Towers roof rack system already installed on the Mazda, we'll begin our test fit by placing our cargo box directly on top of our cross bars. We want to be sure that our clamps are open, and sitting just in front of our cross bars, we'll then slide the box rear in so the lower portions of our clamp go around the underside of our cross bars. We'll now take a quick look to be sure we have our box centered, and we'll open the passenger side, reach in, and tighten the two red T-handles located closest to us. A great feature of the Rocketbox Pro 14 is it's ability to open from both the passenger and the driver's side. With out passenger side secure we'll now make our way around to the driver's side, open the box, reach in, and tighten the two red T-handles located here. With all four of our foot packs secure, we're ready to load this cargo box down with some gear and we can hit the road.

Mazda 5 Questions

  • What you might be interested in is a bike rack that can tilt back from the rear of the vehicle with bikes loaded like the Swagman Semi 2.0 2-Bike Rack # S64686. This may not allow you to completely open your rear hatch, but with it tilted back you would at least be able to open it slightly.

  • Between the Rola, Inno, and Rhino-Rack roof racks you mentioned, I recommend sticking with the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 # RRRS299. This rack will offer you the most streamlined look and will offer you the quietest ride. The aerodynamic shape of the crossbars in the RS 2500 system combined with the way the crossbars end at the rack's feet are what help to quiet the ride with this rack compared to a more traditional-design rack, such as the Inno Square Bar # INB117, # INXP, # INTR120...

  • All of the hitches we offer for the 2013 Mazda 5 are Class I hitches that have a 200 lb tongue weight rating. You would want the Draw Tite part # 24874 as it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap with a carrier like the Curt does, and doesn't come with a ball mount that you wouldn't need. If the carrier you are interested in weighs less than 40 lbs and is Class I compatible then this hitch would work well for you. If not, then you would have to look into a small trailer...

  • The instructions for the Draw-Tite Class I receiver specify that on the passenger side frame rail the front-most attachment hole needs to be enlarged slightly. As an alternate, a 1 inch diameter hole can be drilled in the bottom of the frame member as shown in the diagram I provided. No drilling or enlarging will be required on the drivers side. You can see the installation instructions by clicking the provided link.

  • You are correct you will not need to permanently modify your 2010 Mazda 5 to install the Rola Extended Series Roof Rack with APE Mounting System, part # 59834. I have attached a link to the instructions for you to check out. You will need to remove the anchor point covers and then replace them with the included rubber pads. Place one of the end-supports on the rubber pads, and then insert the 40 millimeter bolt through the end support and rubber gasket. I attached a drawing...

  • The 3 hitches available for your 2012 Mazda 5 are all Class I hitches with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. I recommend the Draw-Tite Hitch # 24874. I have included a link to installation instructions and a link to a video of the hitch being installed on your vehicle. For a bike rack, I recommend the Thule Platform Style T2 Classic # TH9044. This carrier accommodates bikes with wheel sizes measuring between 20 inches to 29 inches with tire widths up to 3 inches, and it has a weight...

  • I would go with the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24874 that you could order from us by easily hitting the add to cart button! This hitch would do well to carry a 2 bike rack, the Curt Hitch you referenced would also carry 2 bikes well. But since Curt recommends the use of a stabilizer strap with that rack when using a bike rack it wouldn't be my first pick. The most popular bike rack with other Mazda 5 owners is the Swagman XTC-2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This is a great platform...

  • Yakima lists the Raptor Aero Roof Mount Bike Rack, # Y02093, as fitting round (Yakima) crossbars, and square bars, as well as factory or other bars that are less than 4 inches wide and 1-1/2 inches tall. Thule does use square bars in their basic roof rack systems. But they also have used Rapid Aero bars and the new AeroBlade bars which are more elliptical. Since you mention having the square bars, the Raptor should fit without any additional parts.

  • The Draw-Tite hitch # 24874 is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Mazda 5 and the Thule Vertex 4 Bike Rack # TH9029XT will fit the hitch properly. I recommend a hitch lock # THSTL2 to secure the Thule rack to your hitch. The rack has a built-in cable lock to secure your bikes. However, please note that a Class I hitch can only handle the forces from 2 bikes, even if the rack itself can hold more than 2. You can certainly use the rack for only two bikes, which would allow you more...

  • The plastic covers on your 2012 Mazda 5 will just pop out and you can remove them with your hands. In the event one should be difficult, you can use a narrow tool such as a flat screwdriver to pop it off but you will want to be very careful not to scratch or dent the vehicle if you must use a tool. The covers will not be put back on as long as the roof rack is installed on the vehicle. Make sure that you save the covers should you want to remove the rack. The Thule rack...

  • The Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24874 is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. Because it is a Class I hitch, you are limited to certain bike racks and a maximum of 2 bikes because a Class I trailer hitch cannot support the added stress of additional bikes. With that said there are still a number of bike rack options that are compatible. I have included a link to all of the Class I compatible bike racks for you to view. Please note that some can hold more than 2...

  • I spoke with my contact at Rola and he said that the Rola APE Extended Series Roof Rack, part # 59834, has not yet been tested as a fit on the 2012 Mazda 5, so I can not tell you if it will fit or not. I would recommend the Thule Rapid Aero Roof Rack, part # TH460R, part # THARB47, and part # THKIT3080. This roof rack will attach to the preset mounting points on your 2012 Mazda 5. This roof rack has a weight capacity of 165 lbs, but anytime you will be hauling cargo on your...

  • The Draw Tite hitch part # 24874 has been confirmed as a fit for your 2012 Mazda 5 so it would be the correct hitch to use. Since this is a Class I hitch with lower weight capacities there really isn't a great way to use your Yakima Holdup for 2 inch hitch part # Y02443 with this hitch. Hitch adapters end up cutting the weight capacity of the hitch in half and add movement to the setup so they aren't the best solution. It may not be the solution you were looking for, but the...

  • For your 2015 Mazda 5 the Draw Tite hitch part # 24874 has been confirmed as a fit. The tongue weight rating of this hitch is 200 lbs. Which means it can handle 200 lbs of vertical weight at the hitch opening. A 700 lb trailer would most likely have a tongue weight right around 70 lbs. That being said, if the owners manual of your vehicle states that you can't tow with it there's nothing we can recommend for you that would allow you to do so. You can also check with a Mazda...

  • The main difference between the two racks is the weight differential, as you mentioned. The Kuat rack has a slightly higher weight capacity, 80 lbs versus the 70 lb capacity of the Thule Roadway. Both racks have anti-wobble systems, the Thule rack uses a threaded hitch pin that snugs the shank of the rack tightly against the side of the receiver, while the Kuat rack uses a standard hitch pin, along with a knob that is used to tighten the rack/receiver connection.

The Curt 17x46 Cargo Carrier, # C18145, the Curt 20x48 Cargo Carrier, # C18110, the Pro Series Cargo Carrier, # 6500, and the Surco Cargo Carrier, # 52017, will all work for you.

  • On a Class I hitch you should never carry more than 2 bikes with a hitch mounted bike rack. The reason is because of the additional weight and leverage of the additional 2 bikes would be too much for the hitch/frame and would most likely cause damage. I attached an FAQ on hitch classifications for you to check out. At this time there are only Class I hitches available for your vehicle (like the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11127 you referenced). However, you if you really need to...

  • The hitches offered for your 2012 Mazda 5 are light-duty Class I types that have a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200-lbs. (It is a good idea to check your vehicle owner's manual to see if it has a different tongue weight capacity than the hitch). Most bike racks have a 35-lb weight limit per bike, but a few do have the build to handle heavier bikes like your two beach cruisers. However, naturally these sturdier racks tend to carry a higher price tag. Thule offers their...
