Roof Racks

Recommended Posts

Thinking of getting a couple of Hobie Quest 11's, total weight on roof of outlander would be 52 Kilos, I an worried about having them on the side on the roof, wind and the like, any experience here?

Hi Foghorn,

I've had two of the slightly heavier Revolution 13s on the roof of my Mazda 323. In my case I had one sitting flat and upside down on one side of the roof racks and I have an angled cradle for the second kayak.

I've travelled at 110km/h with a single kayak and 80km/h with the two on the roof and I haven't had a problem yet. In the car manual you should find the maximum load rating for roof racks.
