  • You are correct in that only the Rola GTX # 59967 (now discontinued) attaches to the railing and could be installed in varying spreads. The other racks attach to the factory fixed points that are in the railing which are separated by 32 inches on center. If you are wanting the absolute max spread capabilities the Rola wins in that regard. That said the Rola bars tend to flex more than the other ones do so if rigidity is a priority the Rola loses in that category. The most rigid bar...

  • Why is There a Crossbar Spread Difference Between Rhino-Rack, Thule, and Yakima Brands
  • The crossbar spread difference that you are seeing between different brands of roof rack systems has to do with the way that the racks are built. Each manufacturer tested their specific roof rack on a 2013 Toyota Prius and based the placement of the crossbars off of the data that they gathered. The specific spots are the best spots for weight capacity and performance. All manufacturers have great roof rack systems and I would have no hesitation recommending any of them. I do recommend...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2 Kayaks on 2019 Mazda CX-5 with Side Rails
  • For your 2019 Mazda CX-5 I recommend going with aftermarket crossbars for a couple of reasons. The first is that aftermarket bars will give you more crossbar space to work with on your roof to better accommodate your 2 kayaks (and possibly more). The factory bars for your CX-5 likely feature a flush design where the bars don't actually extend past the side rails. This allows for a sleek appearance but reduces the amount of mounting space you have for your items. Aftermarket bars will...
