Kayak Hauling

I bought it for my Daughters car and installed it along with some stand up Kayak racks. It installed OK the directions were not that great had to do some real interpretation on them due to language conversion and lack there of? It took longer than I think it should have but after figuring it out the next 3 went very good. I would say 4.5 stars overall.

For the price, works as described

Like everyone else, the instructions were not great. A 5-10 minute installation became 1-2 hrs because we missed a minor detail in the instructions. Overall, the racks are very sturdy on our roof. Appearance wise - it could be better. The sides does not hug our car & it sticks out a bit. We leave it on our car 24/7, and of course, there is a lot of noise when we drive +50 mph. It worked well during our 5 hr round trip drive with our heavy camping gear loaded on top.

satisfied so far

I've only installed the roof rack at this point, have yet to load anything on it however, the installation went quite well, took longer only because I am quite particular about my work. Fits nice, looks nice, quite rigid so I'm confident about how well it will perform.

Seem to be secure

Roof racks are light and secure. Directions sucked. Took me about 3 hours to figure things out through exploration. But if the directions were clearer it would have been incredibly easy. Looks like they will be easy to take off and on. Boat goes on them today and a short trial trip.

Well pleased with the rack system

The appearance is great and compliments the car quite well. It does whistle at around 40 mph but may need tightening - which I haven't tried yet. The whistle is not annoying and goes away as you reach higher speeds. It fit very well with the carrier we purchased without any adaptation needed.

Cool low-profile rack

This rack looks awesome on my Jeep Grande Cherokee! Not a 10 minute install by any means, but not to difficult either. Solid and aerodynamic.

Solid Roof Rack

This roof rack is solid all around. Don't expect this to be at the level of a THULE/Yakima rack but hey, the price justifies it. If you're like me and only have the rack on 3 months out of the year (snowsports) this is ideal. Be prepared for a somewhat arduous installation process. The way the plastic base pieces are constructed it is important to use the tape measure to ensure that you are in perfect alignment on each side of the car or else you'll get a torsion effect. Locks are worthless.

Fiesta ST Roma GTX

Everything works great! Be sure to snug it down a lot to prevent movement. No issues with anything and I'm super glad I chose this rack!

Works great

I researched roof racks and finally landed on this one. It was well worth the cost in comparison to the other brands. I'd purchase this one again.

Great for the price

I'm using this on my 2017 VW Golf and I love it. I think it looks much better than the VW crossbars, and it was half the price.

base system and kayak carriers

System arrived as promised. Fairly easy to install. Works well on my Toyota Venza, even with moon roof and panoramic window! With 2 sets of carriers, l could carry 2 kayaks on top and 2 bikes on a hitch rack on the back!

Great system.

After much research I decided on this system. It had the look I wanted and the price was great. Similar systems (Thule, Yakima) were more than double the price. It was somewhat challenging to install but certainly doable. Definitely need two people. Extremely satisfied with my purchase!

perfect fit and great quality

we bought this roof rack for our 2016 kia sedona, I believe this one is superior to the Kia branded one from the dealer and quite less money too. It is great quality and took maybe 10 minutes or so to install, it fits right and will last for the life of our minivan

RE:bolts are to long on base frame

tThe bolts are to long on the base of the racks. I cannot secure the rack frame tightly because the bolts are making contact with the suv,s body.I will have to dissasembl;e the whole unit and either grind down the bolts or try to find some shorter stainless bolts at the hardware store with the right thread size. THE RACK Also MAKES A WHISTLING NOISE AT SPEEDS OVER 40 MILES AN HOUR.

Sturdy and good quality.

This rack fit very well and installed quickly. It whistles just a touch around 40 plus and adds a little buffeting at highway speed for my small car, but it probably wouldn't be noticeable in a midsize car. Very sturdy and good quality construction.

Not worth the money, get a Thulle system

We spent too long trying to get these racks tight. Then as soon as you mount a kayak rack they are.loose again and feel like they're going to fall off. The aerobars make an awful whistling noise as you drive, even a speeds as low as 20mph. I wish I'd spent more on a better system.

Worked great so far

Used them twice. Held two kayaks and 4 j brackets with ease on the highway (65 mph). All smiles as i count the money i saved buying these vs a top of the line brand. They fit well on my 09 Corolla. Little wind noise but non existent with music on it seems.

Something for my Transit Connect

Just purchased a Ford Transit Connect. Nothing on the top and wanted to be able to haul a ladder. Bought a ROLA rack. Best rack that I have seen yet. Easy to install. Great Price.

Was fairly easy to install once I figured it out. Has non slip rubber on top. Looks nice and works well for holding my ladders.

Good as advertised

Install takes about 30 minutes for the cross bars but they feel quite sturdy once attached to the rails. I have not loaded a cargo box on top but I have no reason to believe it wouldnt be sturdy/stable. You can hear some slight whistling sounds once the car gets to around 70 mph but that is no biggie. Quality product.
