Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2018 Honda Civic 2 Door


Hello, I need a roof rack for my car that will be able to hold 2 kayaks. My roof is bare with no preexisting rails or bars. Please help. Thanks!

For your 2018 Honda Civic 2 Door with a bare roof I recommend the Inno Aero Bar Roof Rack because it will provide you with the quietest rack available for your vehicle. This system consists of # INXB130-2 for the two 51 inch Aero Crossbars, # INXS250 for the Inno Through Feet, and # INK683 for the Custom Fit Kit. In addition to reducing noise during travel, the aero-style bars also offer a really sleek appearance and plenty of capacity to support your 2 kayaks.

I have attached a short video demonstration that you can also check out.

For a more economical option the Inno Square Bar Rack consisting of # INB137 for the two Square Crossbars, # INSUT for the Inno Feet, and # INK683 for the Fit Kit will work great to support your kayaks or other cargo but just won't have the same aerodynamic qualities (both in noise and appearance) as the aero bar system.

Then to secure your kayaks with either of the above two roof rack options I recommend taking a look at the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073 because its versatility allows you to carry 1 or 2 kayaks depending on its orientation and the needed tie-down straps are included. It can support 2 kayaks with a total weight of 110 pounds.

I have attached a video demonstration on this carrier that you can check out as well.
