Inno Roof Rack Review - 2018 Chevrolet Malibu

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chevrolet Malibu, we're gonna be test fitting the INNO Aero roof rack system consisting of part numbers INXB108-115. These are the 42 inch long and 45 inch long crossbars. We'll also be using part number INXS200, these are the INNO flush feet for the Aero crossbars, particularly for naked roofs, and finally part number INK689, and this is the custom fit kit for the Chevrolet Malibu.The INNO Aero crossbars are great for carrying a wide variety of accessories on your roof and freeing up space inside your Malibu. You can carry anything from bike racks to cargo baskets to ski and snowboard carriers. The bars themselves have an aerodynamic shape to them and that, coupled with the rubber strip up at the top, is gonna cut down the wind noise and drag while you're driving, reducing the need for inaudible 00:00:48 that you may need for square or round bars.While this roof rack system does boast more of a natural factory look to it that you would get with some vehicles, it does have a disadvantage. It does cut down the amount of space that you can install your accessories with this end cap here.


Best 2018 Chevrolet Malibu Roof Rack Options

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the best roof rack options available for our 2017 Chevy Malibu. We'll have a Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack system and our Yakima Jetstream Roof Rack system.We'll first start off by pointing out some of the differences between the two bars and the most obvious is going to be the length, with the Yakima Jetstream going significantly past where the Rhino Rack is. And this enables you to carry more accessories, especially in your t-track area. Now with the Rhino Rack, you can get longer bars, but you're going to have to purchase those separately.Next we'll talk about the end caps. With the Rhino Rack it does require a special tool to unlock them and remove them and you can replace this with a lock core which is sold separately. With the Yakima, it doesn't have any locks, but it simply slides off by popping off the end.You can utilize t-track accessories with both roof racks as we just mentioned, however it is a little different how they install.


Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2018 Chevrolet Malibu

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chevrolet Malibu we're going to be test fitting the Rhino Rack 2500 series roof rack with square cross bars, part number DS126B. These are going to be the cross bars for naked roofs or fixed mounting points, and these are going to be 49" long, we'll also be using part number DK462, which is the custom fit kit for the Malibu.The Rhino Rack 2500 series roof rack is great for carrying a wide variety of accessories on your roof while freeing up space inside your Malibu. This can carry anything from bike racks to cargo baskets to cargo boxes. While the square bars are strong and durable, they are going to make noise while you drive. What I recommend is an after market faring which you can find on etrailer.com to cut down that wind noise and drag.The end caps do come with locks already installed, so once you install this it is going to be secure to your roof. Next I'd like to give you a couple quick measurements from the center of the roof to the bottom of the bar is going to be about 2 and 7/8", and from the center to the top is going to be about 3 and 7/8".


Malone AirFlow2 Universal Roof Rack Installation - 2018 Jeep Cherokee

Speaker 1: Today in our 2018 Jeep Cherokee we're going to be installing Malone's AirFlow2 Roof Rack System with aero bars. This is what they're going to look like when they're installed, and this will allow you to mount roof rack accessories on your vehicle such as cargo baskets, cargo carriers, bike racks, and any of your other favorite accessories. One of the best parts about this roof rack system is how easy it is to install. They come right out of the box with all the accessories right on it, so all you got to do is slap it up on your roof and tighten it down. Another bonus feature is that the tool is integrated inside the locking cap, and each footpad comes with a lock. So you don't have to worry about your crossbars walking away from you.It's an aero bar design, which is going to be more aerodynamic than your square bars or round bars.


Malone SteelTop Square Crossbars Roof Rack Installation - 2018 Jeep Cherokee

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Jeep Cherokee, we're gonna be installing Malone's steel top roof rack square bars. This roof rack system's gonna allow you to get some gear out of your vehicle and put it up on top of the roof. You can do that with a cargo basket, cargo carrier or maybe you're going bike riding. You can load up a bike rack.One of the best parts about this roof rack system is how easy it is to install. They come right out of the box with all the accessories right on it, so all you gotta do is slap it up on your roof and tighten it down.Another thing that sets this apart from other roof rack systems is that it has integrated locking caps right out of the box. It does have the square bars.


Thule Roof Rack Installation - 2018 Toyota RAV4

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Toyota RAV4, we're going to be doing a test on a Thule ArrowBlade Rapid Traverse Roof Rack system, using part numbers THARB53, for the aluminum 53" silver load bars. Those are also available in black, with part number THARB53B. We'll also be using part number TH480R for the Rapid Traverse Foot Packs and part number THKIT1730, that's the Fit Kit for the RAV4.This Thule roof rack system is going to allow you to carry roof mounted accessories on your RAV 4. Things like bike racks, kayak carriers and cargo boxes. The arrow blade design is going to be much more aerodynamic compared to traditional round bar or square bars. These are going to reduce the need for a fairing, and they're going to be much quieter.

  • How to Remove the End Caps on Thule Rapid Crossroads Feet and AeroBlade Load Bars
  • If you are talking about the end caps on the Rapid Crossroads foot pack # TH450R then they will just pull off (unless you have locks installed then you would unlock them first). For the end caps on the AeroBlade bars there is a little tab on the underside of the bar that you will need to press in while pulling out on the end cap. I made a video showing how this works for you.

  • Difference Between Rhino-Rack Vortex And Thule Aeroblade Roof Racks For 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe

Both systems are designed to work on vehicles that have the flush mounted rail system. As far as the design or advantages or disadvantages of the Rhino-Rack system versus the Thule system, it is very difficult to say it has features that are better than the Thule. They both have very similar crossbar designs and features but the Rhino-Rack has...

  • How to Determine if 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee has E-Group Roof For Picking Out Roof Rack
  • The E-Group rails are ones that have a chrome section that runs down the middle of the rail. The non-E-Group rails are totally black without a chrome section. I attached a picture that has the chrome section pictured. If your roof has the E-Group rails you would need the part # RRRVP27 that you referenced as that is what this rack is designed to fit. Otherwise you'd need the Yakima roof rack part numbers # Y00422, # Y00146, and # Y06121.

  • Best Roof Rack for 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
  • I contacted Thule to verify the correct fits for the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. Thule does not recommend opening the sunroof with any crossbars installed, as it may cause damage to the crossbars or the sunroof's motor and glass. With the Thule Aeroblade Edge, part # TH7504-TH7504, you will not be able to use the sunroof, but the quick install and removal of these blades may make up for that. These bars ratchet to your existing siderails and can be removed quickly when not in use. Thule...

  • The Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7603-TH7603 uses Thule's AeroBlade Edge technology which mount flush to your 2014 BMW X3 factory side rails. They do not extend farther than your side rails like the podium mounted roof rack and give an OEM roof rack look. This creates a quieter, stronger and more aerodynamic roof rack. This rack is a bit shorter than the podium style racks at 38" long. Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack with # THARB47 is a podium style rack which sits along the top of...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2017 Honda Pilot
  • For your 2017 Honda Pilot I recommend the Thule AeroBlade Edge roof rack # TH7603B-TH7604B for black crossbars or # TH7603-TH7604 for silver crossbars. The AeroBlade Edge roof rack is going to look the most like a factory rack, the bars are integrated into the feet for a low-profile appearance, and the bars are among the quietest with the least wind resistance. The only other part you will need is the fit kit # THKIT3132.

Then all you will need is the fit kit, # THKIT4047, to attach it to your flush side rails. I have linked a video showing the features of this type of roof rack for you.

  • Roof Rack Compatible with 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Panoramic Sun Roof
  • If your Santa Fe does not have factory-installed flush side rails that run front to back on your roof (and I believe that it does not have these) you can select the Rola Roof Rack for the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Panoramic Sunroof, part # 59779. If your Santa Fe Sport does in fact have the factory-installed roof rails that run front to back on your roof, then you can use the Rola Roof Rack, part # 59766, which is intended for vehicles that do have the factory installed roof...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with Factory Install Rails
  • The crossbar I recommend is the Thule AeroBlade # THARB53 because its extremely quiet and has integrated T-slots which make it easy to slide T-track accessories onto the bars. The roof mounted railing foot pack # TH450R (sold separately) are easily installed or removed with the integrated tool that will also act as a cover. The weight capacity of the roof rack is 165 pounds but it's always a good idea to check your owners manual to see the maximum roof weight capacity. Therefore,...

  • Recommended Method to Carry Kayaks on 2015 Toyota Highlander XLE with Factory Roof Rack
  • There are several ways you can go to rig your 2015 Toyota Highlander with fixed factory roof crossbars for transporting kayaks. Adding a secondary roof rack is not an option, however, since aftermarket racks would have to use the same mounting points as your OEM bars. I confirmed this with my contacts at both Rhino-Rack and Thule. But there are also other ways you can carry kayaks that might give you additional cargo-carrying capabilities and/or possibly save you some money as compared...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for Roof of Camper Shell On Truck
  • Your best option is going to be to have the Thule Top Track part # THTP42 installed on the roof of your camper shell and then use the # TH460 for feet with the fit kit part # THKIT3101 with your Thule crossbars like # THLB58. I can't safely recommend you install the Thule feet in the Yakima tracks as they haven't been tested.

  • Troubleshooting Loud Whistling After Rhino Rack Roof Rack Install
  • Did you install the rubber strip in the upper and lower channel of the crossbars? What you described sounds like you are missing that as these are aero bars and should not be whistling at all. If there are any holes in the channel on the bottom or top of the bar they should be covered to get rid of the noise. Or you can use a fairing like part # RRRF3 to direct the air over the rack.

  • Carrying Two Kayaks on Bare Vehicle Roof
  • Assuming that the kayaks are narrow enough width-wise to safely fit on the roof of the vehicle, using two foam block carriers like part # SR5525 would be an option as long as the combined weight of the kayaks doesn't exceed the roof capacity of the vehicle. This option is designed to be used on a vehicle with a bare roof, and the straps that hold the kayaks to the roof will pass through the passenger compartment, the doors will need to be closed on the straps. This arrangement has two drawbacks....
