Review of the Inno Ski and Snowboard Racks on a 2017 Toyota Highlander


Hi everyone, Aidan here with etrailer.com. And today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Inno Gravity Ski and Snowboard Carrier here on our 2017 Toyota Highlander. Now this style of ski and snowboard carrier is going to hold it up here on the roof, out in the open in these clamps. These are gonna be rubber padded so it's going to give the gear some good grip and it's going to be a large amount of cushioning, keeping everything up here nice and safe, nice and tight. Now with this, it is a little bit difficult to reach up in there with the style of this factory roof rack. We have to set the gear in a little bit so you probably will need to open your door, step up in there with your boots to actually access everything.

Such as something to keep in mind, if you go with something much more premium, like the Kuat Grip, you can actually slide these trays out to reach your gear. That's really nice in the Highlander, but again, that's a much more premium option that you might not want to go with. I do really like this one though because of the way it locks and attaches. So like we can see here, we've got our locking core, keeping the carrier closed, all of our gear safe inside but it also doubles to lock up the attaching clamps. These are really nice because once you set them for your crossbars, it's just as simple, drop it on, hold that lever over and it's secured.

And then when we have this closed and locked up, that keeps the lever from opening. So with one key, you're keeping everything locked to the roof rack and to the carrier. As far as usable space goes, that is something important to keep in mind when you're loading it up with your own gear. We've got 14 and 5/8 of an inch of interior usable space from side to side. So if you've got your gear at home, you can lay it out, see if it's all gonna fit in this space.

Another thing to keep in mind is the height added from the top of the crossbar to the top of the carrier. It's gonna stick up about 7 inches. That's not too bad. You wanna keep it in mind just with any sort of garage clearance, anything like that. But overall it's a lot better than the alternative which is a roof box.

Those are gonna stick up a lot higher. They're gonna take up a lot more room in your garage and they're gonna be a lot more expensive to get one long enough to carry skis and snowboards. So for me, this style is my preferred method just because it's way more accessible and it's gonna be just easier to deal with in the long run. Thanks for watching..
