Roof Rack and Surfboard Carrier for 2016 Hyundai Accent 5-Door Hatchback


Some reviews noted the Accent was too narrow for these racks? What length crossbars do you recommend for surf and/or paddleboard? What additional equipment should I purchase to haul a 92" longboard or a paddle board around with? Do you have locking surf racks? Thanks

The Rola APE Series Roof Rack # 59714 will fit into OEM fixed mounting points on your 2016 Hyundai Accent 5-door hatchback, and the review you are referencing was just saying that because of the style roof rack, there wasn't much wiggle room in terms of installation, but once the rack was installed, it was very sturdy.

The 47-1/4" long bars will be a perfectly fine length; most of the racks that fit your '16 Accent are between 46" and 50".

There is a locking surfboard carrier that will work with this rack, the Inno Board Locker Surfboard Carrier # INA744 which can carry up to 2 longboards so long as they are no more than 23-1/2" wide. This carrier will conveniently clamp onto your Rola roof rack's bars and has the aforementioned locking covers to keep you board safe.
