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 that allow you to carry channel-mounted accessories on your roof. Simply push down on the rubber strips and slide your gear into the channel. There's no need to remove or cut the strip.


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 AirFlow2 Universal Roof Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Malone Airflow 2 universal roof rack for raised side rails. Part number MPG215. The Malone Airflow roof rack system is a universal roof rack system designed to work with your factory raised side rails. It's an aero style bar which the strips at the top as well the rubber strips that you'll be installing on bottom channel as well are going to help cut down on wind noise and drag while you drive to make this a very quiet ride once it's installed. They work with a wide variety of roof top accessories such a bike racks, kayak carriers or cargo baskets. The towers are lockable so once this is installed on your rails it's going to be secured to your rails as well. We can open up this little panel at the end, you can see that it has a T-track to it meaning you can use T-track accessories with this roof rack system. In some cases you may be able the push the rubber strip down and slide the T-track accessories in like so.

In some other cases you may have to have this removed and cut it to length around the accessories that you're going to be putting inside the T-slot. These are made with a non-corrosive aluminum and comes with the hardware necessary to install them meaning you don't need any additional tools to install this onto your vehicle. In fact the tightening tools are integrated into the end locking mechanisms on our towers. These bars have a carrying capacity of 165 pounds although you always want to double check with your vehicle's manual to make sure it can withstand those weights. The dimensions of the bar are going to be 50 inches long by 3 inches wide by 1 inch tall. Now that I've gone over some of the features of the roof rack system, let's go ahead and show how it installs. We'll start off by removing the locked ends of our towers on both bars. They're going to be comprised of two different types of locks, just the lockable end that you see here then the ends with the tightening tools already put into it. Before we place this onto the roof rack we want to make sure the clamps of our towers in the open position.

You'll take the loosening tool, or tightening tool, come to the end, just turn it to the left to loosen it up. Looks like that's good on both sides. Now we can set this on our factory raised side rails. Let's just set our front bar into place, you want to find a point up at the front of the bars that you can use as a reference point to keep the bars even on both sides. We'll go to this point here, this line here and measure back on both sides to keep the bar even. Now that they're even on both sides, we're going to check for our crossbar overhang measuring on both sides making sure that is even as well.

Once the overhang is even on both sides we can start tightening it down to our side rails. Once everything's tightened down we'll reinstall our locking ends to our towers, then we can install our rear bar. Next we're going to take our crossbar spread measurement which is going to be from center of the bar to center of the bar. Now according to the instructions you should at least be 70 centimeters apart. Right. Again we'll measure for our crossbar overhang on both sides to make sure it's even as well.

Finally we'll lock up our towers and we have one more step before we can load up our gear. Once it's completely installed, we still have this channel at the bottom and it does come with this strip to go in there. You would measure out between the towers, cut your strip to length then any excess over here you would cut the rest of it to fill in those gaps as well. This is going to cut down the wind noise and drag or help with cutting the wind noise and drag while you drive. Once that's done, now you're ready to load up your gear and hit the road. And there you have it for the Malone Airflow 2 universal roof rack for factory raised side rails, part number MPG215.

2014 Audi Allroad

In response to etrailer.com's request for a 1-year update on my experience with the Malone Airflow2 Roof Rack, I have to say I remain 100% satisfied! This product was far more affordable than most other options for my 2014 Audi Allroad, and it has performed flawlessly. It was crucial to install the rubber stoppers carefully to block all wind whistles, and it was slightly annoying to have to cut them to fit and place them appropriately, so I would not want to have to modify them to add another rack to the twin OneUp fatbike racks I've installed, but that initial installation effort was my only complaint. I even made the all-too-common rookie mistake of beginning to drive into my garage with a bike on my roof: while I bent one of my OneUp racks, there was NO apparent damage to the Malone Airflow2 (so it seems plenty rugged)! 527341


Comments

Still satisfied at the 2-year mark. I just purchased a Thule Force Alpine cargo box that fits between my pair of OneUp fat bike roof racks, and it clamps on just fine. The only misleading statement in the product description is that I found it absolutely necessary to cut the rubber that fills the T-slot in order to install or even move my bike racks. And sliding it into place is quite a pain as well. I’m considering adding a 3rd bike rack, but I’m not looking forward to the installation process, and I wonder if I might need new rubber for the T-slot if I were to have to cut the original one too much to reposition it —but I’m not sure Malone sells it separately?

Pretty slick looking, and fairly easy to install on a 2018 Subaru Forester. No problems inserting the rubber trim into the slot on the underside of the crossbars. I haven't yet driven it above 50 mph (just installed them this afternoon) but so far no noise issues. I also haven't mounted any kind of equipment rack to the crossbars, so I can't speak to the T-slot functionality yet. One tip - be sure the plastic end cap is pushed onto the rail far enough for the release tab to click into the square hole inside the rail end. It can feel like it's pushed on all the way, but the tab must engage or it's not secure. Give it a solid tug to test it - sure would suck for it to come flying off on the highway somewhere. 529106

Great, definitely get some wind noise at highway speeds, but not enough to bother me.

This is a great value product. I was a bit discouraged by the pricing of similar name brand products. I took a chance on this brand, and have been very happy thus far. Assembly was a breeze and fit was perfect thanks to the fit guide offered by etrailer. Would highly recommend this roof rack system, especially for those unwilling to pay double (or more) for other brands that serve the same purpose. 544818


Comments

The Malone roof rack has exceeded all my expectations. We have hauled kayaks and roof storage with no issues. All the parts have held up well. Highly recommend this product.

I ordered the Malone MPG215 and they arrived in a few days. I was worried that the 50" rails would be to short, the Malone fitment guide said they would be to short and I would need the 58" rails for my 2017 Jeep Cherokee. I didn't want the longer rails to overhang the doors and bang my head. I watched the etrailer install video and they had the shorter rails so I figured it was worth a chance. They arrived completely assembled except for the snap on end caps and the rubber trim for the bottom of the rails. Easy install- take out of the box, unlock the covers, take out the allen keys, loosen up the clamps, put them on the rack, measure for alignment, tighten them up, replace the covers, snap on end caps, measure and cut the rubber trim and install, DONE!!!! It took about a half hour, super easy at half the cost of more expensive rails. The silver rails go good with the factory rack. Over hang is about an inch in the front and two inches in the rear. Now I can take my gear or get some materials at the local home improvement store without fear of how I'm going to get it home. I really appreciate the install videos etrailer provides, makes everything easier. 655581

Easy to assemble and look good. Happy with the price. As other reviewers said, watch the end caps, there is extra plastic on the odd locking tab that needs to be trimmed so they will stay on. The manufacturer should look at fixing the mold for this. Etrailer experience was excellent. 553440

I am reluctant to leave a review before I actually use them, but I wanted to go ahead and leave a review on ease of setup. It took me less than 10 minutes to install the bars and they appear to be well made. We'll see once I start hauling my kayak around this spring. 493800

Our objective is to carry a 16' canoe. etrailer was quite helpful in advising on cross-bar options for our 2015 Toyota Sienna minivan. The Malone cross bars were a good value and fit onto our factory installed roof rails. Also, their measurement was sufficiently accurate that the minivan is able to clear entry into our garage. We will be going back to etrailer for advice on which support system to use with the Malone cross bars. 544461

Super fast shipping. Everything installed in about 20 minutes, no problems. Fits great on 2015 forester with raised roof rails. Only tool required was an Allen key that is attached to lock 'A' of the included towers. 500139


Comments

After owning the product for a year, it has been great. We have moved across the country with it and the rack has been fantastic! We put a rooftop box on the rails and it did wonderfully. I now have a bike rack on it and again, fantastic. The rails are super sturdy and there is hardly any flex. There havent been any tears in the rubber strips or any other damage I have seen. They have been removed and reinstalled a few times with no issues. Bugs clean off of it pretty easily also. I would easily make this purchase again if this set ever needs to be replaced.

The crossbars themselves are relatively lightweight but appear to be sturdy. I used them on my 4runner to mount a rooftop tent. I traveled some rough trails and was camping for four nights without any problem. The bars have done well under some rough conditions. I do think the plastic end caps are garbage. They were a pain to install then easily come off if the rail clamp slides and hits them, also break easily. That was disappointing. etrailer service was fantastic and I recommend doing business with them 496246


Comments

I just returned from a trip offroading and camping in death vallely. The crossbars have help up well but I did duct tape on a couple of the plastic end caps and that has worked fine. Again I have a roof top tent mounted to these rails. I think it weighs about 135 lbs and has done just fine on these rails across some rough mountain and desert trails.

After selling my truck and purchasing one without a trailer hitch I placed my order for my new Curt trailer hitch. Shortly after I received and email from George J. at etrailer.com. The email stated that my order was being packaged and would be sent out in the next seven days. Living in the northeast we have a very short boating season and seven days to put the order together and 7 to 10 days to ship was not going to work for me, as I would be without a boat most of August. I replied to the email to ask about expediting the shipping. I got a reply email almost immediately from Troy H. who informed me that Etrailer was waiting on another part of my order to come in from the manufacturer. Troy said that he could get the trailer hitch and wiring harness out immediately if i didn't mind waiting a little longer for the roof racks. I didnt mind waiting for the roof racks so Troy had my hitch and harness sent out. Five days later it was sitting on my front porch. Thank you to George J. and Troy H. for the great customer service. 545906

Previous owner and heavy user of roof racks including Yakima round bars on 3 vehicles, Thule aero bars (2) and factory roof racks on Toyota 4Runner and Highlander. First Malone product. Took about 45 minutes to place on a Rav4. Construction materials are solid but just a hair below Thule and Yakima. Ease of installation was as good or better than previous racks. Value was by far the greatest asset that Malone offers. Once installed, the racks feel solid, only a hint of additional road noise on the way to work this morning. Full test with two sup boards on a 200 mile round trip this weekend. 551807

Use rack to transport canoe and kayak, love the accessory rail. Rack is silent, no wind or any noise during any legal speeds. Solid product and very good material and craftsmanship, .. ordered trailer kit for my sorento as well due to the fact of how pleased I am with the roof rack. etrailer rocks!!! 546910

Fast Delivery, explicit install video's while your waiting. Received my roof rack a day early. That was great because I am leaving the next day for Atlanta. Install time 32 Min. Would have been quicker but I had to mount, mark for rubber rail sealer strip, dismount, install strip and remount. Took it for a ride to check for air noise. Local it was OK but will see on 95 tomorrow when I'm doing 75. Sold my neighbor a hitch for his 2013 Ford Edge while I was installing the racks. Customer Service is hard to find today but the crew at etrailer is the best. 499893

Rails were as expected, fit great. Had an issue wit a part and the folks at etrailer came though above an beyond what I expected. Great customer service. The wind noise is negligible and if it bothers me I'll turn on the radio. Have tied ladders down with no issues. So the snowflakes will give their snowflake reviews of how the rails do not work. So listen to them if you choose to do so. I am very pleased with the rails and the quality of the rails. I went ahead and scratched them the first time used, that way I can not get upset if they get a scratch later. They do however kill some bugs, so if you want to protect the endangered bugs, I suggest hugging a tree. 566147

Comments

I bought these bars because I bought a roof top bag from [outdoor warehouse] which is 15 cubic ft. Found the Jeep doesnt let you slide the bars far enough apart to make room for the bag so I will just use one of them to keep the bag from sliding back. The bars are very sturdy but the end caps are junk and it wouldnt do any good to get new ones just glue them a little so you can cut them loose if need be. Cant beat the price and they look good as long as you dont lose the end caps. tried to bend the clip on one end cap and it broke off. so I glued it

The Airflow2 are great. They fit perfectly on the stock rails on my Subaru Impreza. Quiet, secure, and good looking. When driving with my 19ft surfski or 12ft surf rescue boards I have complete confidence. 557970


Comments

Its kind of hard to see in the photo, but Im not sure I saw any tie-downs for the front and back of your rescue board. They do an excellent job of preventing the wind from trying to lift the front/rear of the board during transport its a scary occurrence, if youve ever seen it happen!, and they are highly recommended.

Product was better than advertised. Very clean and sleek. Installation took 20 minutes. Only tool not in the box was a tape measure to square it on roof. Only complaint was the ends of the bars have burs which of course i cut a knuckle on. It does come with caps to cover ends. The color is an almost perfect match to factory rails. 525869

We used this rack to replace the original ones that came on our 2010 Subaru Forester. We attach our J-cradles for hauling kayaks. It was pretty easy to put on the roof. The J-cradles just fit though and it sits a bit higher off of the car so keep that in mind if you want something lower. 556609

Ordered this roof rack for a 2013 Toyota RAV4 and it arrived well packaged and on the date as promised. Rack is so easy to install that I didn't bother to look at the instructions. Solid Construction! I like the fact that it extends a little beyond the rails as it leaves the ends to easily loop lines around. Drove for an hour the first day with them on and hardly noticed any difference in the wind noise at 70mph. Highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to buy again. 404263

Working perfectly for our T4R, could have gone a few inches wider for more rack to grip up top but that’s a preference thing. Have a thule rooftop carrier on them and it’s a great setup 573461

I bought the least expensive item in the category, and I must say I was happy with the results. The Aero Crossbars were pretty easy to install and work well. Very little wind noise, if any. Though with the Cargo basket attached to the rails, there is a little wind noise. The Rola Cargo Basket is very sturdy and seems to be well made and solid. Better then my expectation. The roof/rack mounting hardware works well. The only difficulty I had in assembly was with the rubber sleeves that cover the basket assembly screws to protect them from rusting. These were very challenging to install and I wish I had thought to just use some black duct tape - I suspect most people don't bother with them. That was the only negative - I do lose about 2.5 miles per gallon with the rack installed on my 2017 Subaru Forester, but that was expected. Overall very pleased with the purchase. Found the ordering and shipping went exactly as expected. 407848


Comments

Aero crossbars and the cargo basket are both still in excellent shape after a year, hauling golf clubs and luggage on trips to Florida and kayaks to local rivers. Id still recommend these products

Rack working well. Only minor issue is that the small plastic covers on the ends of the racks that cover up the securing bolts tend to pop open when I pull my kayak off the rack. Would be better if those covers were hinged at the top versus the bottom and opened in the upward direction. Probably a matter of time before they get ripped off. 565877

I tried to install the front bar and found that the Allen key would not fit back into the slot so I could not lock the unit. I took the unit off and one of the clamps came apart. It took me an hour to reassemble it and then discovered that the Allen Key would not fit back into the unit because I installed the "cross bolt" in a vertical rather than a horizontal position. I'm not going to take it apart. I'll just cut the Allen Key to a shorter length so it will fit and I can lock the unit. 527295

Product quality seems very good, installation went well although, the provided instructions were minimal at best. I found some different Malone products instruction vids on youtube that were helpful, but conflicting pictures/videos of which are the leading edges on the crossbars. I assumed that the thinner edge should be front facing but as I said, other pics and videos had them the other way. 425574

One of the bars was scratched already. I'm not sure how that happens before the box is opened but the box was in such a condition that it could have been previously opened. I assume I was sent a previously returned product... 560484

Outstanding product! The rack, once mounted, is rock solid. The instruction were clear and the mounting process was fairly simple. My only complaint/warning would be to NOT over-tighten the Allen screw that clamps the mount to the side rail. One of the internal nuts stripped, but I was able to make it work with a lock nut of the proper size. I take the blame for that. 434772

Very solid well make cross brace may be the best value out there. Would prefer a wider & taller slot for the T bolts as I had to machine the T bolts from my BMW bike racks to fit the slot. The heavy duty rubber tube that goes in the T slot to reduce wind noise fills up the slot not allowing thick T bolt to slide thru. Otherwise you would need to cut the heavy tube into sections to fill spaces between the bolts but you wouldn't be able to slide the bike rack on the crossbars. I replaced the heavy duty tube w/ a thinner road bike inner tube allowing the T bolts to slide . After a test drive the inner tube started making noise at 40 mph compared to the heavy tube that made more noise at 30 mph . Guessing it's the small seam on the inner tube. 540523

I have measured the Malone T-Slot accessories and for their items the T-slot has a thickness of 6 mm. It looks like your bike rack may have thicker T-slot mounting hardware. I did contact Malone and their recommendation is remove the rubber stripping their thicker ones and cut to fit around your bike rack mounting location as needed. This would allow you to mount your bike rack, and also reduce the area of potential wind noise.

2017 Toyota RAV4

First I want to note how positive my customer service experience was with etrailer. No wonder they are so highly reviewed and recommended. I had 5+ email interactions, some with different reps, but all were timely, knowledgeable and helpful, and they resolved my issue (a missing part). Now the review.. The mpg215 crossbars fit easily on our 2017rav4 hybrid. securing them was very easy also. Put 1k miles with a sportrack vista xl on I-5 in California. The Vista xl is a rather tall roof box and the malone crossbars have some height too. Add some open road headwinds to our 4 cylinder cuv with the roof box loaded and we dropped about 5-7mpg... not too surprising. The malone crossbars performed flawlessly and stayed secure the whole trip. They are lightweight, strong and I don't think you can beat the price anywhere. 485041

So far so good. It took me a while to actually buy this crossbar set. I read so many reviews it was starting to wear me out. But I decided to go with this Malone set and I have to say, I believe I made the right choice. Everyone wants the “name” brand stuff because it’s supposed to be made “better”. Well my official opinion is I save hundreds and it is stylish and well put together. Quite solid in fact. So if you want essentially the same crossbars as every other one on the market l, but save allot of money. Go with Malone it’s a safe buy 543025

2019 Subaru XV Crosstrek

This roof rack fit's my 2019 Subaru Crosstrek perfectly, and was a breeze to install! There's a bit of wind noise at 45+ mph, but that may be due to my placement of the front rail which I was trying to keep from being seen from inside through my sunroof. The rack is strong; no problems carrying my kayaks at 60mph. Overall a great rack. I installed it in about 30 minutes. The video provided by etrailer was unbelievably helpful - watch it before you start. 558250

I purchased this item for my Audi sport wagon to carry my two fork mount carbonfiber road bikes. I was involved in a collision and my bikes were not damaged nor was the racks. I now have the rack mounted on my 2015 ML 350 Mercedes. Its a little challenge to mount bikes because of the size of my vehicle but it works just perfect. I had no problems with it and it is really a good universal top mount. I would highly recommend this to my friends and anyone who is looking for a top mount rack. 695169

My SUV now has Utility!! Added the racks so I could transport purchases from my local home improvement stores. Not using any carriers (bike, kayak). The kit was easy to install, looks great! Is quiet (unlike comparably priced square tubbing), and includes rubber that should keep my rails from getting scratched. I prefer a straight across profile over the curved versions that cost 2-3x more. Highly recommend. . 693723

Have Malone Airflow 2 crossbars. Fit well and hold everything in place. Can’t complain. Bought them for the price, nothing fancy. Take them off in winter. Takes forever to manually screw them on tight. Expected that. If you don’t get the rubber gasket things in place perfectly under the crossbars as instructed they whistle as you drive. Don’t lose the keys! 690759

Do you have a question about this Roof Rack?


  • T-Bolt Fitting Compatibility with Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Crossbars
  • Malone AirFlow roof racks like # MPG215 can use their own T-Slot Fit Kit # MPG6604 for Malone carriers or you can use another T-bolt fastener. I linked a photo showing a cross section of the AirFlow bar and the exact inside dimensions. I converted the millimeter dimensions to inches: 21.15mm = 0.83-inch 11.45mm = 0.45-inch 7.35mm = 0.28-inch This means the stainless steel T-bolts # 853-5648 will work fine. Most brands of T-bolt fittings and rack crossbars tend to be interchangeable...

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.

  • Best Roof Rack with Silver Aero Crossbars for a 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • For your 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan with the raised factory side rails, I recommend using the Thule WingBar System which is composed of part # TH711200 for the crossbars and part # TH710401 for the mounting feet. As you requested, this system contains silver crossbars that have an aero shape which will help to reduce wind drag and noise. The crossbars also mount atop the feet which will provide you with more clearance between the crossbar and roof in comparison to the systems that attach directly...

  • Recommended Low Cost Kayak Carrier for Roof Rack System
  • The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack - Aero Crossbars # MPG215 are a confirmed fit for your 2017 Toyota 4Runner. You can use the roof rack without kayak cradle, but it isn't the best option. At the very least, I recommend the Swagman Coastal Kayak Carrier - Foam Block Style # S65156 along with the Swagman Cam Buckle Cinch Straps - 1" x 10' - Qty 2 # S65137. This is the bare minimum to avoid direct contact and to soften the ride a little. A better option for a cost effective carrier that...

  • 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.

  • Cost Effective Way to Carry a Kayak on a 2009 Subaru Forester
  • In order to carry a kayak on the roof of your 2009 Subaru Forester you are going to need a roof rack and kayak carrier. The most cost effective roof rack we have for you is going to be dependent on whether or not you have a bare roof or raised side rails. If you have a bare roof then I recommend the Rola APE Series Roof Rack part # 59636 which uses fixed mounting points and comes with aero crossbars. If you have raised side rails then I recommend the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG215...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2018 Mazda CX-5 for Thule Hullavator
  • We have roof racks that fit the flush rails you have on the roof of your 2018 Mazda CX-5 but the Malone kit you mentioned only fits rails that are raised like you mentioned. Instead you want the Yakima Roof Rack part numbers # Y00425, # Y00145,and # Y06029 which is a confirmed fit and a very nice roof rack. This will also work really well with the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 you mentioned as well.

  • Will Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack fit 2018 Mazda CX-5?
  • The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG215 will only fit a 2018 Mazda CX-5 that has raised side rails; from your photo it does not appear your CX-5 has those, unless you were talking about those side rails when you mentioned you have already installed the side bar. Otherwise, if you do have a naked roof, the most economical roof rack option for your '18 CX-5 is from Inno and consists of the Square Crossbars # INB137, Feet for Crossbars # INSUT and Custom Fit Kit # INK497.

This is an easy installation with no drilling required. I recommend using the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches # 63201 made for this hitch to give you security and anti-rattle stability for your cargo carrier. For your cargo carrier, I recommend the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153....

This will fit your Malone Aero bars like # MPG215 on your 2015 Toyota RAV4 as well as the factory bars on your 2008 Honda Pilot. I recommend using the gasket maker # LT37467 to seal the extra holes in your box to prevent water entry at the unused locations.

  • 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.

  • What Prevents Bars of Malone Roof Rack MPG215 From Sliding Once Installed

  • 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!

  • Malone Roof Rack Fit for 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
  • Following the side trails of your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, the rear crossbar of the Malone # MPG215 roof rack system is both common and normal to be slightly higher than the front crossbar. The crossbars and legs are identical, so the connection location to your factory side rails will determine that fit. Further spacing may help to even out that height difference, but you will want to ensure your crossbar spread is appropriate for whatever you are carrying on your roof rack.

  • Which Malone AirFlow Roof Rack Fits 2018 Nissan Pathfinder with Raised Rails

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.
