Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack

The Malone AirFlow2 roof rack lets you carry gear and accessories on the roof of your vehicle with raised, factory side rails. This complete roof rack system includes 2 aluminum, aerodynamic crossbars and 4 towers. Rubber strips in the top channels push down for easy loading of T-slot accessories and carriers. The full-length crossbars extend past the towers to give you more mounting space for carriers, and the towers have built-in locks to protect the rack from theft. The rack clamps onto your raised side rails and tightens down with the included tool, so it's easy to remove and install.


Aerodynamic Shape

Malone AirFlow2 Crossbar with Endcap

The AirFlow2's Aerodynamic shape helps control air flow over and under the bar to significantly decrease wind noise and vibration even at highway speeds. This decreases the need to add a fairing to your roof rack. The aero-style bar also reduces drag and helps maintain fuel efficiency.


Lightweight, Aluminum Crossbars

Malone AirFlow2 Crossbar with Endcap

The silver crossbars are made of aluminum, which makes them strong, lightweight, and resistant to corrosion. The bars also have plastic endcaps to protect the interiors from the elements and to give your roof rack a finished look.


Durable Towers with Built-In Security

Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Towers

The towers are made of molded nylon that won't fade or wear down when exposed to the elements. Each tower includes a nylon cover with a built-in lock to deter would-be thieves from removing the rack from your roof. The covers also protect the towers' interior and hardware from the elements.


Easy Installation with Rubber-Coated Steel Clamps

Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Installed

The towers attach to your vehicle's raised, factory side rails with rubber-coated steel clamps. The rubber coating provides a superior grip on your side rails and protects them from damage during installation and use.


Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Installation Tool

To tighten, simply turn the bolt inside the tower assembly with the included installation tool until the clamps are snug. Once assembled, the towers and crossbars stay together as one unit, which makes removing, storing, and reinstalling the system a snap. To remove, simply remove the cover and loosen the bolts inside the towers with the installation tool.


Channel and Clamp-On Accessories

Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Rubber Clamps

These crossbars have built-in top channels with strips that allow you to carry channel-mounted accessories on your roof. You can remove, trim, and re-insert the strips around the mounting hardware of your accessories to keep the crossbar channel capped and quiet.


Maximum Cargo Carrying Capacity

Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Full-Length Crossbars

The AirFlow2 includes full-length crossbars that extend past the towers. The increased length gives you more space to mount accessories and carriers to your roof rack. The bars are compatible with most universal, clamp-on accessories and carriers.

Video Transcript for Malone Roof Rack - Complete Roof Systems - MPG216 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Malone AirFlow 2 Universal roof rack for raised side rails. Now these bars come fully assembled and attached to the factory-installed raised side rails on your vehicle to provide a roof rack system for hauling your gear. This will allow you to carry roof rack accessories like bike racks, baskets, and boxes, kayak carriers, ski and snowboard carriers, and much more. This system will fit side rails that are between one inch and two and one quarter inches wide and have a max height of one and a half inches. Now these bars feature a nice aerodynamic profile, which is really going to help reduce wind noise during travel. These bars will accept accessories that clamp or strap around the bar. They also work with T-slot accessories with the integrated T-slot channel or strip that runs the full length of the top of the bar. The end caps are hinged so that way they open up.

That's going to allow for easier installation of your T-slot accessories. And the T-slot channel has a rubber strip inside of it that will conform around the anchor or attachment point of the T-slot. That's going to help maintain a quiet ride during travel. That's also going to help keep dirt and grime out of the channel as well. Now, these bars are going to come with the adjustable foot. They can slide under the bar.

They're a really nice design. Those feet are going to allow the unit to easily attach to your factory raised side rails on the vehicle. They're going to feature CAM-assist bolts that ensure a tight fit on smaller side rails. And they are padded. So where they grip around the side rails, they have a nice padded design.

That's going to keep them from damaging or scuffing the side rails on your vehicle. They also have a rigid design which is going to provide maximum grip and security once they're fully installed and tightened down. Also want to point out that each end cap is included, and each one is hinged. Also, each tower has built in locks. So those are not an add-on. Those come standard with the towers.

So each tower has a built in lock to secure the rack system to the vehicle roof. The bars themselves are made from a non-corrosive, double-wall aluminum construction. They're very strong, durable, and lightweight. And they have a really nice aero-design, which makes them a really good looking bar, as well. Very quick installation. Again, they're going to come fully assembled, right out of the box. The tool that you need is actually built in to the locking towers. So no additional tools are needed. Now, there's going to be towers that have the letter A on them. That means that those are the ones that have the tool. So if you unlock this, and you pull that out, you can see that the Allen tool needed is built right in to that piece right there. That allows you to place it in there, and then as you tighten that, it's going to bring these feet closer together around your side rail. As you loosen it, it's going to separate those feet further apart. So it's a really nice design. Again, the tool is built in. Each tower has the lock core installed already, to provide maximum security for your roof rack system. With the kit, you're going to get two aero-style cross bars. You're going to get all the necessary towers with the blocks already pre-installed and built in. You're going to get two keys. Either key will work on every lock. You're going to get the necessary end caps, so you'll get four of those. Also, the towers are going to have integrated Allen wrenches, so those are included. Two of the towers have them. Two of the others . Excuse me. Two towers have them. The other two do not have the Allen wrenches. You're going to get these tubular rubber gaskets. These gaskets can be cut to length and installed under the bar, in this channel. That's going to maintain a quiet ride as you head down the road. These bars are available in three different lengths. That way you can get the ones that are going to work best for your vehicle. You can get them in 50 inch, 58 inch, or 65 inch lengths. All are available here at etrailer.com. When it comes to the dimensions of the bar, they're going to measure three and 1/16th of an inch wide by one inch tall or thick. They have a load capacity of 165 pounds per pair. And they're going to be covered with a lifetime warranty. That's going to do it for today's look at the Malone AirFlow 2 Universal roof rack for raised side rails.

I am overall happy with this product and the aero design is quiet on the road. I do not like the large feet that get attached to the factory roof racks and their large size does not allow my Yakima kayak carriers to straddle over the feet. The locking mechanism is also giving me problems as the key gets stuck trying to get past the security cover piece on the lock. I attempted to lubricate it but will still get stuck occasionally. The allen wrench device is a pain for installing the bars since you cannot turn it 360 degrees without hitting the bottom side of the bar and mandates removing the wrench and starting back at the other side. I would recommend getting same brand products to avoid the issues I'm having and not try to mix one brand bars with another brand rack/carrier. 567558


Comments

I have been satisfied so far but have removed the locking mechanism since it gave me trouble and the key would get stuck. The blade style gives a slight whistle at higher speeds but was expected.

Quick service product built very well haven’t driven with the kayaks on it yet but feels very secure. The only thing I would change is once you get everything aligned I wish the brackets would stay where they are at on the bars but as soon as you loosen to remove them the brackets move. 529492

Easy enough to get the rails on the car, but once it was secured, it was impossible to get the rubber strips inside the bottom of the rail to reduce wind noise. 641177

These fit my Volvo XC90 R-Type perfectly. They are very sturdy and secure. The only thing I can say that might bother some people is the wind noise you will hear when driving. Even though I put the rubber strips underneath to reduce the wind noise you can definitely still hear it. However for me that isn’t an issue, when I hit the road I’m blasting my music so it doesn’t bother me. 638438


Comments

Unfortunately, adding anything to the roof of a vehicle will generate wind noise. Its unavoidable. As you mentioned, it can be minimized by ensuring that the rubber strips are in place atop and on the underside of the crossbars.

Very impressed with the quality of product for the price. Was able to install quickly and easily and seems very strong/reliable. The 58" was a perfect size for the 2012 Honda Pilot and should be able to fit our Thule luggage carrier no problem. 426641

I just received these today. Installation was easy. I haven't used them for carrying a load yet, but I don't have any reason to believe it wont work fine. These bars are way cheaper than Thule, and they seem to be very good quality. I was expecting them to be noisey, but so far (speeds below 70 mph) that has not been the case. The service from these folks was excellent. George responded immediately to a mistake on my address. He corrected it and the bars arrived within three days of ordering. Very happy I ordered from these folks. 477818

Sturdy construction, easy installation, looks good on the car. Will use it for car box carrier, but this is a very versitle crossbar with the T Slot to use with other accessories which offer this feature. 423929

I purchased the 58" model cross bars because I often have to transport materials for work that wont fit in my car. I am also planning on buying a kayak and wanted the cross bars to accept a kayak carrier. I had some difficulty finding cross bars that were long enough but not crazy expensive. These fit the bill. The installation was quite easy and they look like they came with the car. I have had it out on the highway and there is no noise. Very pleased. 406186

The Malone AirFow2 Roof Rack- Aero Crossbars arrived in the mail around 1pm today and I finished installing by 4:30 pm. They look great on my metallic black 2015 Ford explorer and will work great for my needs and the price was great. The only problems encountered were the end caps for the Aero Crossbars plastic retaining clip was broken on 3 of the 4 end caps. The one that wasn't broken worked and I was able to remove it to install molding to reduce wind noise. The other 3 I just mounted using clear silicon sealant. I hope they remain on as I have not driven the SUV with the crossbars installed yet. I would appreciate you sending replacement end caps with retaining clips intact. Care should be exercised because the plastic seems to be brittle and could easily be broken. I would recommend these Crossbars for Ford Explorer installations and you can' t beat the value and they look great with my silver factory side rails. 528791

Really great rack at half the price of the other brands. not sure why more people don't know about these! I also bought some van ladder rack accessories to fit 4x8 sheet plywood on the roof, and the 58" was just slightly too short to have these fit on both sides, so get a longer rack if you want to do this. 642745

These bars are noisey at highway speeds on our first iteration Volvo XC90. Main usage is simultaneous kayak and SUP/paddle board transport. A little flimsy under the weight of both but never caused a real worry. I would recommend them for the price even considering the above. Easy installation and they lock which is a plus. 549485

The rack is on the roof and the Rhino side bracket ready makes it easy to load my Hobie 14 foot Pro Angler Kayak (98lbs) on the high roof of my Suburban, (it has a 3" lift}.

This product caught my eye because it looked to be light, low profile, useful and easy to assemble with a clever mounting system. Now that the rack is installed, it is proving to be all those things. The extruded aluminum bars are wing-like in cross section, and though they apparently don't help my van fly, at least the shape handles wind resistance well. It's a thoughtful touch to provide the plastic inserts for the bottom channels -- so far, no sign of flute-like wind noises! One small but significant change I'd like to see, though -- provide a handy link to a selection of T-bolts on your website. The rack system is perfectly useless without some sort of tie-down attachments! I wandered around my local hardware store and cobbed together a decent eye bolt system for tie-downs. I have just begun to use the racks as a way to carry extension ladders. Too soon to tell about long-term ruggedness, but with sensible loading of select ladders, the system seems to perform flawlessly. It seems to be able to handle anything the factory roof rails could handle, so I am very pleased with the results. 505864

The Malone Airflow crossbars are great. I received it very fast and got it installed very securely. I love it. Thank you for your quick shipping and communication.I do have a question, since I replaced my crossbars with this, my kayak carrier will not fir the width of the airflow. Do you have any suggestions. Thanks again, you guys are great! 542129

2018 Toyota RAV4

I purchased the Malone MPG216 racks for a 2018 RAV4. The product was delivered in excellent condition. The installation was relatively easy to do. I bought the 58 inch wide racks instead of the 50 inch racks. They fit the vehicle well. The extra overhang due to the additional 8 inch crossbar width did prevent me from making 360 degree turns with the supplied allen wrench so it took me an extra 10 minutes to tighten the rack down to the siderails. This was not a big deal and I like the extra 8 inches. The I will post an update later on to let you know how well they function under load on the road. The Etrailer customer service has been excellent so far. Jason promptly answered some initial questions I had about another rack I was considering. His advice was helpful. 573872

We received Item in good condition even though the box was received damaged. Installation was easy except the rubber insert. It is indicated in instructions , The rubber inserts are applied after you install the crossbars on the vehicle. (next to last page). Recommendation: The rubber inserts should be installed on crossbars before you install them on vehicle. The allen key is a little tricky because it prevents you from making a full turn. A shorter allen key was used instead. The item arrived earlier than expected which was great. 607703

I installed these (58") on a 2018 4Runner. Great buy! These seem well made and will likely fit the bill; clamp tight, hold fast, and surprisingly quiet. Round bars ROAR at ~ 40 mph. These aren't audible until ~60 mph; simply background/road noise at 72 mph. My only concern is the endcaps. One really has to be sure to push in to get them to "click" into place and are a bit flimsy. 448006

-2015 Nissan Pathfinder. -Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack - Aero Crossbars - Raised, Factory Side Rails - Aluminum - 58" Long. This is my first ever roof rack so I am by far no expert. I researched many roof racks and I just couldn't see spending 500, 600, or over $700 on an accessory. The installation is not nearly as easy as some would think, in my opinion. However, I am anal and meticulous about every detail. I put the roof rack rail on and got everything into place with measurements (width between them, how much they stick out, etc). Then I mark the underneath of the racks for the rubber to go so I could cut it precisely (you slide in the rubber...although I think some cramped the rails down and then stuffed the rubber in). Pros: -Look at my vehicle...I think they look amazing...especially for the price. -Everything is very firm and doesn't move after proper installation. -Matches chrome on car and current cross bars Cons: -End caps are cheaply made, but I didn't have any problem getting them to snap in. Get a higher grade plastic or something -Directions that were provided were sparse and you kind of have to figure it out on your own, which wasn't too difficult. -THE NOISE is my biggest complaint. It's not terrible but enough to annoy me. These are advertised as "Airflow2" so come on. And I'm no aerodynamics professor but shouldn't the more narrow end be pointed toward the wind, not the fat end? Maybe a moonroof visor would help the noise...I don't know. 3.5 - 4 out of 5 because of the noise and because of the cutting and cheap end caps. But for the money, I think they're worth it. Good luck to your purchase and installation...it's not too bad. :) 510052


Comments

Unfortunately, any time a piece of equipment is installed on a vehicle roof, there is going to be wind noise, its unavoidable. Airfoil-shaped crossbars like those on the Malone rack you purchased are actually much more quiet than the older square or round-profiled crossbars. The crossbars are indeed meant to be installed so that the thicker end is pointed forward to the wind, just like an aircraft wing. To keep the wind noise to a minimum, its important that the entire length of the slots in the underside of the crossbar are filled with the provided rubber strips .

The 58" Malone MPG216 bars replaced a set of 58" Malone Steel bars. The new bars feel sturdier and a definitely quieter. The fit and finish is great, except for one bar end that doesn't fit as tightly as it should. I put my Yakima Skybox 21 on top of them and they did the job. My only complaint is that they already have a slight bend after being loaded with just 140 lbs. I expected a bend to occur later in the year since the top box stays on for 6 months out of the year, but not after just one road trip. But, there was no movement from the bars or the box at all during the 1600 mile trip. So far, so good. 603765


Comments

The Yakima skybox is about 70 lbs on its own. The weight capacity of the roof rack is 165 lbs. If you are putting 140 lbs worth of cargo in the box, plus the weight of the box itself on the bars that is 210 lbs. The bars will bend if they have 210 lbs of weight on them. Please make sure you are taking into account the weight of the box on the bars as well.

2018 VW Tiguan, the installation was easy and price was good. Item was delivered fast. Minor scratches on the rails, nothing that I can't live with...Probably caused by some loose parts in the box. The plastic end caps are flimsy and one of them just won't stay in place. The pre-installed rubber strips in the upper T slot were cut to short (on both rails) so there is a gap each sides allowing air to go in the T slot and making noise. Contacted etrailer support via mail and waiting their answer. 562312

I ordered the bars to replace the factory ones on my RAV4. They arrived in great shape on the day promised. Installation was a snap thanks to the videos on the etrailer site. I did not use the built in wrench. The hex is a 5mm so I grabbed a hex socket, extension, and my 3/8 ratchet. Took all of about a half hour to install. Could have been quicker but it was nearly 90 degrees out and I was not rushing. Getting the factory bars off was more of pain than putting the new ones on. I have a set of Yakima pads on them because of the boat that I use. The bars with the pads installed are quieter on the highway than the factory ones. I installed the slot rubber strips only on the outside ends because the pads cover the center. Got up to 75 on the highway to test the nosie level and they were nice and quiet even with the sun roof open. Solid, easy to install, the 58 inch width is enough to easily get two boats on and having the little extra hanging out makes tie down easier. Great product and great service. Seen with my homemade load assist. 20 bucks worth of PVC and a dollar store pool noodle with a few zip ties. 666530

Bought the MPG216 for a 2014 RAV4. The smaller MPG215 would have worked/fit and are wider that the Toyota crossbars which created a problem mounting my long ski box (rear hatch wouldn't open). Have mounted the crossbars and installed my ski box. Pleased with the apparent quality of the crossbars and mounting hardware. Originally received some incorrect information from etrailer about the towers. Malone (OEM) provided correct info. Later, received updated useful info on width from etrailer. Took multiple emails to sort out the sizing. 544591

The roof rack is solid and still going strong...in my garage. Unfortunately the 2010 Ford Edge was not as solid and the roof racks are awaiting the next vehicle. Thanks for the follow-up and have a great day! [Thumbs up] 719514

This rack is one of the easiest to mount.I've only been able to try it for a weekend, but I highly recommend over all the others, i usually only buy yakima, but this is lass then half the cost and just as nice looking with same functionality. 696219

Easy to install, looks great, fits perfect. Locks were initially hard to open. Replacements sent right away. Plastic end caps had to be taped to stay on. Still a great product. 694325

It was delivered in just a few days and the instructions made it easy to assemble. I haven't used them yet but there's been no issues with them being noisy at all. The only negative thing I have to say about them is that you have to use an allen wrench(included) to tighten/loosen the clamps on the car rails which takes a lot of time. I definitely like the way they look though 692732

2015 Nissan Pathfinder

I like to wait on reviews until I have broken in a product. This is an excellent choice. Small amount of noise when driving but that is to be expected. Works great and is sturdy hauling a 14’ canoe on a 2015 Pathfinder. A neighbor was walking past and asked about the rack today while loading the canoe. I told her to go to etrailer.com. Her other brand wasn’t working so she wanted another opinion. 690268

The Malone AirFlow 2 Roof Rack is the most ridiculous bargain I've come across in a long while. I'd been preparing myself to spend $4-$500 on a Thule. A product I was familiar with and had used in the past with great success with Volkswagen's. After some simple research, Malone kept coming up as a affordable, comparable alternative . These days when you see something that is literally less than half of what your planning to spend, your first thought is "too good to be true" or "you get what you pay for". After calling and consulting with Stacey at etrailer.com I purchased the system and COULD NOT be HAPPIER !! It took me less than 20 minutes to have it completely installed on my 2013 Tucson. The construction of the racks and hardware is top quality. My main use of the system will be hauling kayaks and canoes which this will far exceed. Other than the fact that I saved about $300, etrailer prides itself on customer service and that I can, and will attest to their claim. I called and had a bunch of questions before ordering, Stacey was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, patient, and most of all courteous !! There is no doubt that etrailer.com has become my new source for any towing or recreational needs for my vehicle. 683833

Overall it's a great product. Arrived quickly and was fairly easy to install. There are a few nitpicks though. Instructions are not very good, if you're not mechanically inclined, it might take a bit longer to install. The edges of the aluminum cross bars are VERY sharp. The covers for said edges seem a little flimsy, might need to secure them somehow. The included hex tools are nice, but ball points on the tips would be nice. I am very satisfied with the product, much better price and functionality than the OEM cross bars. 683712

I have wanted to get something for the Renegade, that I could haul stuff that would not fit inside. Like lumber and sheets of plywood (an who knows what else now). Assembly was easy, especially for someone with a back injury. I looked to purchase one from the dealer and they wanted nearly $300.00, with taxes and all about [half] from this site. All in all it took about 30 minutes. 680655

  • Replacement End Caps for Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack
  • There are end caps for your Malone Roof rack, the Replacement Endcaps for Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Crossbars # MPG1012. These end caps are direct replacements for the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG215 (50" crossbars), # MPG216 (58" crossbars) and # MPG217 (65" crossbars). I have added a link to a video review of the end caps for you to check out.

  • Economic Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier Compatible with 2019 Subaru Forester
  • The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack 58" # MPG216 or the 50 inch # MPG215 are aero style roof racks that will fit your 2019 Subaru Forester. I would lean toward the longer option, but recommend you check the width of your canoe to determine your need. You can alternatively use the steel square bar # MPG201 or # MPG202 for a more economical option but I recommend upgrading for the minor price difference to reduce wind noise and give you the top channel mount for compatible accessories.

  • Inexpensive Way To Carry Two Kayaks on a 2014 GMC Acadia
  • It sounds like you have raised side rails on your 2014 GMC Acadia and need a set of crossbars as well as a compatible kayak carrier. If that is the case then for a set of crossbars, there are few better options than the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG216 with price in mind. This system has tracks for use with channel mounted accessories as well as aero shaped bars for the least wind resistance. It also comes with locks. For a kayak carrier to haul two kayaks, you will want to use...

  • How does Roof Rack Bar Sizing Work?
  • Roof Rack sizing is a little different than what you'd expect it to be. Each rack's length is measured by the length of the bar from end to end, letting you pick the amount of distance the bar goes past the bars on the top of your Jeep. The other measurement, called "Cross Bar Spread" is the recommended distance from the center of one bar to the other bar. This helps you pick the size of the roof rack or cargo bag that you can put on top of the vehicle, as well as if a surfboard...

  • Roof Rack For 2019 Toyota RAV4 With Flush Roof Rails
  • We do indeed offer some fits for your vehicle. The Sea Sucker # 298-SX6000 uses extremely strong vacuum cups to attach to the roof. The nice thing about this product is that they are super quick and easy to install and remove Thule offers a rack system that would attach to the fixed points in the rails. There are four covers set in the rails roughly in the area over the doors that will need to be carefully pried out to access the mounting points. A rack would be constructed using...

  • In order to use the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 on your 2015 Toyota RAV4, I recommend using the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG216. These crossbars will attach to the factory side rails on your RAV4 and allow you to use your Hullavator without issue. The crossbars have an aero shape which will work to reduce wind noise and drag. They also come with locks to prevent theft. I have attached a review video of these crossbars installed on a similar RAV4 for you as well. This will give...

  • Can 58 inch Malone Roof Rack Fit on 2012 Ford Escape with Raised Roof Rails
  • The longer crossbar 58 inch Malone Crossbar Kit part # MPG216 will fit and work fine on your 2012 Ford Escape with raised roof rails that run front to back. Malone recommends the 50 inch version of this part # MPG215 but you'd be fine with the longer bars. They would just overhang a bit more.

  • Can 58 Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack be Used on a 2010 Toyota Highlander
  • We have actually confirmed with Malone that both the 58" # MPG216 and the 65" # MPG217 long Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack will fit on your 2010 Toyota Highlander. The video that you are referring to is us fitting the 50" version, part # MPG215, on a 2008 Toyota Highlander. When I checked with Malone the 50" version actually won't fit so you need to use one of the longer versions and you won't have to cut them. Even though it is possible, we don't recommend installing the roof rack so that...

  • Roof Rack and Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Toyota RAV4
  • We do have confirmed fits for trailer hitches and roof racks for the 2019 Toyota RAV4 that you have. For the hitch I recommend the 2 inch Curt Class III part # C13416 because it will install very easily, and has a hidden crosstube which means only the hitch opening is visible below the bumper for a more concealed look. Then for a roof rack to fit the factory rails that run front to back on the roof of your 2019 Toyota RAV4 the Malone kit part # MPG201 that you referenced is a fit. This...

  • What is a Waterproof Storage Solution for a Roof Cargo Basket?
  • It is absolutely fine to leave a roof cargo basket on when it is not in use. This adds a rugged style to the vehicle and means that you will not need to find space inside your home or garage to store the rack between trips. A recommended setup for a cargo basket on a 2016 Jeep Renegade is the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack, part # MPG216 combined with the Curt Roof Mounted Basket, part # C18115. This provides additional cargo space and is expandable with the Cargo Basket Extender, part #...

  • Appropriate Size of Roof Bars for a 2013 Cadillac SRX
  • Malone tends to recommend their bars a little longer than normal, primarily because Malone deals a lot in watercraft carriers and they often require additional crossbar spread to use correctly and clear the sides. The 58 inch long Malone AirFlow2, part # MPG216 is sized the way it is so that it properly fits your roof rack spread. The installation instructions and recommended locations tend to put them well out of the way of anyone's heads while getting out of the vehicle. I've included...

  • For your 2016 Volvo XC90 with raised roof rails the 58 inch long Malone roof crossbars part # MPG216 that you referenced are a confirmed fit so this would work well for you. These have a weight capacity of 165 lb too. For a kayak carrier with enough weight capacity you'd want the Rhino Rack J-Style # S512 as it has a 99 lb weight capacity. This is a J-style carrier too which is a bit easier to load than other styles.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Cargo Basket to Fit a 2005 Honda Pilot with Raised Rails
  • What you have right now on your 2005 Honda Pilot's roof are raised side rails. You need to add crossbars for a complete roof rack. I recommend the Malone AirFlow2 racks. You can use either the 58 inch bars, part # MPG216 or the 65 inch bars, part # MPG217. Then for a roof basket I like the RockyMounts 14'er, part # RKY1054, because it includes a fairing and a cargo net. I've linked videos of both the rack and basket for you to take a look at as well.

  • The Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier part # MPG117MD is going to be your best option to carry two kayaks on the roof of your 2018 Toyota 4Runner. The J-Pro2 has a weight capacity of 75 lbs but you will need to make sure the weight of the two kayaks, roof rack, and carriers do not exceed the weight capacity of the vehicle's roof which is often different (less) than that of a roof rack like your Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG216.

  • Is Hullavator Pro Compatible with Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack on a 2016 Toyota RAV4
  • I recommend using the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 which has the 58" crossbars on your 2016 Toyota RAV4. Since the Thule Hullavator Pro # TH898 requires there to be 4" - 8" of crossbar space beyond the feet of the roof rack the 58" bars should accomplish this for you. I recommend verifying this by taking a tape measurer and seeing that 58" looks like in regards to the raised rails on your RAV4. If the crossbars will stick out in that 4" - 8" range then they will fit together! Just...

  • Roof Rack Option for 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport without Raised Roof Rails

This rack attaches with vacuum cups which hold the bars firmly to the vehicle roof. I attached a review video for more info on this as well.

  • Malone Roof Rack Recommendation to Carry 2 Kayaks on a 2015 Toyota Sienna w/Factory Rails
  • While a 50 inch long set of bars may seem long enough it is possible that they won't be long enough for the 2 kayaks on your 2015 Toyota Sienna. So to err on the side of caution I do recommend going with longer bars. In this case that would be roof rack # MPG216. That extra 8 inches could be the difference between fitting two kayaks on the Downloaders, # MPG114MD, and the kayaks rubbing against each other.

  • Will Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack with 58 Inch Bars Fit a 2008 Toyota RAV4
  • Yes, you can use # MPG216 on your 2008 Toyota RAV4. The only reason it is not listed as a fit is because the ideal bar length for your RAV4 is 50 inches when it comes to the Malone AirFlow2 systems. But sometimes you just need or want longer bars so it is fine to use a system that has them; in this case that system is # MPG216. Just watch your head when you get in and out of the vehicle!

With this rack installed you could then use the Rola cargo basket part # 59504-EXT that you mentioned.

  • Which Malone AirFlow Roof Rack Fits 2018 Nissan Pathfinder with Raised Rails
  • Malone does really like to recommend longer bar roof racks for the vehicle fits of their roof racks like the # MPG216 which they recommend for your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder and has 58 inch long crossbars. We have not had chance to test fit the # MPG215 on your roof though so while it most likely would fit fine we can't guarantee it. If you can get me the distance from the outsides of your raised roof rails I can give you a more definite answer.

  • Shorter Crossbar Roof Rack for 2016 Jeep Cherokee with Raised Roof Rails

If you look at the rear bar you can see that there is enough bar overhang to fit the shorter bar but then if you look at the front bar you can see the overhang is much smaller due to the raised rails not sitting totally parallel. Thule offers a similar roof rack that does have different length crossbars if you'd prefer a rack that has...
