Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack

The Malone AirFlow2 roof rack lets you carry gear and accessories on the roof of your vehicle with raised, factory side rails. This complete roof rack system includes 2 aluminum, aerodynamic crossbars and 4 towers. Rubber strips in the top channels push down for easy loading of T-slot accessories and carriers. The full-length crossbars extend past the towers to give you more mounting space for carriers, and the towers have built-in locks to protect the rack from theft. The rack clamps onto your raised side rails and tightens down with the included tool, so it's easy to remove and install.


Aerodynamic Shape

Malone AirFlow2 Crossbar with Endcap

The AirFlow2's Aerodynamic shape helps control air flow over and under the bar to significantly decrease wind noise and vibration even at highway speeds. This decreases the need to add a fairing to your roof rack. The aero-style bar also reduces drag and helps maintain fuel efficiency.


Lightweight, Aluminum Crossbars

Malone AirFlow2 Crossbar with Endcap

The silver crossbars are made of aluminum, which makes them strong, lightweight, and resistant to corrosion. The bars also have plastic endcaps to protect the interiors from the elements and to give your roof rack a finished look.


Durable Towers with Built-In Security

Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Towers

The towers are made of molded nylon that won't fade or wear down when exposed to the elements. Each tower includes a nylon cover with a built-in lock to deter would-be thieves from removing the rack from your roof. The covers also protect the towers' interior and hardware from the elements.


Easy Installation with Rubber-Coated Steel Clamps

Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Installed

The towers attach to your vehicle's raised, factory side rails with rubber-coated steel clamps. The rubber coating provides a superior grip on your side rails and protects them from damage during installation and use.


Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Installation Tool

To tighten, simply turn the bolt inside the tower assembly with the included installation tool until the clamps are snug. Once assembled, the towers and crossbars stay together as one unit, which makes removing, storing, and reinstalling the system a snap. To remove, simply remove the cover and loosen the bolts inside the towers with the installation tool.


Channel and Clamp-On Accessories

Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Rubber Clamps

These crossbars have built-in top channels with strips that allow you to carry channel-mounted accessories on your roof. You can remove, trim, and re-insert the strips around the mounting hardware of your accessories to keep the crossbar channel capped and quiet.


Maximum Cargo Carrying Capacity

Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Full-Length Crossbars

The AirFlow2 includes full-length crossbars that extend past the towers. The increased length gives you more space to mount accessories and carriers to your roof rack. The bars are compatible with most universal, clamp-on accessories and carriers.

Just returned from a 600 mile trip with my new Malones. Big fan. It took me about 30 minutes to install just perfectly. Very simple installation, everything is preassembled for the most part, I just had to mess with the rubber protectors, which was easy. They are much more secure and stable than the stock cross bars on my 2012 Explorer, and they look great. At freeway speeds, I had just the whisper of a whistle as I was going into the wind, without the supplied lower rubber gasket installed. I figured I'd see how much it whistled without it, and it was very little. Around town, they are silent. So I'll probably not install that gasket. What makes me happiest, is that they are much less expensive than the other brands, but have the same features (locking, fully adjustable, simple installation) It feels like I got a screaming deal, which I like.

I received these racks a day early. They were super easy to install and they look great on my 2012 Ford Explorer. I was hesitant to buy these racks because they were so much cheaper than the name brands, but I am completely happy with them. The fit and finish are fantastic, I highly recommend them.


Comments
Still like the racks, but the flip down piece on the plastic end caps came off on 3 of the ends and I had to buy the complete end cap assembly just to get the flip down covers.

Great cross bar gripping on bars are really well, just the watch out for the bar end clip locking it broke easy maybe they can send me another one for free since I gave 5 star. If not just put tape just like the others so bar end clips don’t start missing on road trips. Overall great product so far for me the best cross bar I ever had.

The rails look great, very easy to install (although I wish the hex key tool had a ball tip, I used my own wrench). I read other reviews about wind noise, I have none with or without the stripping underneath. My only recommendation to others is to measure your width, the Rav4 is a little more narrow than my other vehicles. I went with the 58" so it would extend out past the vehicle. I'm often by myself loading the top, so it gives more rail to work with, making it less awkward trying to avoid contact to the vehicle.


Comments
After a year, this product still gets a 5 star. Easy install and good price. I did notice some wind noise with the sun roof open, otherwise quiet.

Really glad I went with these cross rails over one of the fancy well known brands! These have been on my car since I installed them and they are just as tight on the runners as they were when I installed them. Haven’t experienced any noise while driving on the highway. Well worth the purchase, 12/10, would recommend.

Just got my Malone Racks yesterday and I immediately installed it. First one was a little tricky, since I had to center the rack and cut rubber strips Exactly to the length on outside gaps. But the second one was easy. Then I took them for a test drive, no Whistles but a little wing noise but not too bad. They look great. Next test will be to strap on Paddle boards, I’ll let you know after I get that on.

One year after for my Malone roof racks, still loving them. I have used them mostly with some Rhino Rack ski/snowboard racks all winter in the harsh Canadian cold. One I realized that I could use my cordless drill with a long allen wrench tip to speed up the process of installing and uninstalling these racks, they from a 5 star rating to, well couldn’t go any higher than it already was, but if I could, I would. [Just don’t overtighten.]. I have installed some gorilla tape over the black plastic end caps so they don’t fall out. Because I install and uninstall them often (about 12 times total in the year I’ve had them, they were a bit loose, but to be expected. With a little tape, they’re not going anywhere.

This was the perfect size for my 2019 Nissan Pathfinder. It works well with the Thule Air Screen (44") and the Thule Pulse M Cargo Box. I drove on the freeway with no issues and with the help of the air screen; NO WIND NOISE! The only thing if you get these bars is realize you will need some zip-ties for the air screen to be secure. The aero clips work for the Malone Aero Crossbars but just the hook point for the TOP Thule air screen clip does not hook to the bar. Only the bottom will fit perfectly. However, I drove on the freeway (65-75mph) for 15 miles with no issues. Just a heads up...

The Malone roof rack crossbars were easy to mount and feels sturdy. The etrailer video made it really straightforward to see how it should be installed. Having looked closely at products from Thule and Yakima, I can understand their premium, but the Malone crossbars are a solid value worth more than their price.

Volvo XC90

These fit my Volvo XC90 R-Type perfectly. They are very sturdy and secure. The only thing I can say that might bother some people is the wind noise you will hear when driving. Even though I put the rubber strips underneath to reduce the wind noise you can definitely still hear it. However for me that isn’t an issue, when I hit the road I’m blasting my music so it doesn’t bother me.


Comments
Unfortunately, adding anything to the roof of a vehicle will generate wind noise. Its unavoidable. As you mentioned, it can be minimized by ensuring that the rubber strips are in place atop and on the underside of the crossbars.

2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris

The 58" Malone MPG216 bars replaced a set of 58" Malone Steel bars. The new bars feel sturdier and a definitely quieter. The fit and finish is great, except for one bar end that doesn't fit as tightly as it should. I put my Yakima Skybox 21 on top of them and they did the job. My only complaint is that they already have a slight bend after being loaded with just 140 lbs. I expected a bend to occur later in the year since the top box stays on for 6 months out of the year, but not after just one road trip. But, there was no movement from the bars or the box at all during the 1600 mile trip. So far, so good.


Comments
The Yakima skybox is about 70 lbs on its own. The weight capacity of the roof rack is 165 lbs. If you are putting 140 lbs worth of cargo in the box, plus the weight of the box itself on the bars that is 210 lbs. The bars will bend if they have 210 lbs of weight on them. Please make sure you are taking into account the weight of the box on the bars as well.

I bought 3 different crossbars and found this one is the best and yet still realitively inexpensive. I highly recommend this crossbar.


Comments
Ive used the roof rack to carry kayaks, bikes and car top carriers and often two of the three at the same time. It has performed well with more than 4,000 miles of use. I did find it helpful to place a bit of glue on the end caps to keep them from popping off when I store them. However, what a small price to pay for such a high quality and relatively inexpensive crossbar.

2013 Subaru Forester

I am very happy with the Malone aero crossbars. I bought extra-long bars, and cut them to the length I needed to mount Malone J racks on one side, and used the rest of the crossbar length to tie on our other kayak using standard foam cushions. This maximized the rather small roof rack on our 2013 Subaru forester. I found the quality of the racks to be Excellent, the locks work really well, and installation was easy. Two thumbs up for Malone, they make really high-quality products, at around half the price of the "big boys". Also I find etrailer.com to be very easy to deal with, with competitive prices and excellent descriptions of their products.

High quality construction, strong and aerodynamic cross bars, cut-to-fit rubber gasket material for bottom side of cross rails (for car specific length between side rails), easy attachment process for locking towers; all as advertised and better than expected!

it does its job holding either our roof rack or our skybox, it looks flimsy at times because it bounces a lot and a little on the noisy side. overall it is a good to have for extra luggage or other stuff to haul.



- MPG216
by:

Fairly easy to install, I do wish they made the allen wrench longer, make it a ratcheting wrench, or used ball head allen wrenches. Once the rail is somewhat tightened, you can only make half turns and need to take it out for every turn to get it fully locked down. I also hear a whistling sound coming from it but I have yet to put in the rubber seals so that may cure that. Other than that, it seems solid.

  • Comparing the 50 Inch and 58 Inch Long Malone AirFlow2 Roof Racks for a 2018 Jeep Cherokee
    The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG215 and the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG216 will both fit your 2018 Jeep Cherokee if you have the silver colored side rails. The only difference between them is length, 50" long vs 58" long.

    The nice thing about the Malone AirFlow 2 # MPG216 is that you can make your crossbar spread whatever you want! as long as you have your raised side rails to clamp them onto. This is a great choice for your 2020 Subaru Outback and rooftop tent. Check out the video I've included of me using them!

  • Will Malone Roof Rack on 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Work With Yakima SkyRise HD Rooftop Tent
    Yes it will! The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 that fits your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek will work with the Yakima SkyRise HD Tent for Roof Rack Crossbars # Y07436. The tent simply requires you have a roof rack that secures to fixed mounting points or side rails (which is what this rack attaches to) and that the rack have a 165 lb capacity, which the Malone roof rack does. I have added a link to a video review for you to take a look at as well of the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216.

  • Roof Rack for 2017 Nissan Rogue with Bare Roof
    We can help you with a roof rack for your 2017 Rogue that has a bare roof but the specific Malone rack # MPG216 that you referenced is for the Rogue that has raised front-to-back rails on the roof. For a quiet aero bar rack like the Malone I suggest the Rhino-Rack Vortex system, parts # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK396, which is a complete roof rack system made for your Rogue's bare roof. This rack version has black crossbars which many find to have a cleaner appearance, but if you...

    Yes, the Yakima Showdown kayak carrier part # Y04081 can be installed on the Malone roof rack part # MPG216 which fits the raised side rails of your 2020 Subaru Forester. I attached a picture that shows this carrier installed on a set of aero shaped crossbars like the Malone set. I attached an install video link for the roof rack on a similar 2019 Subaru Forester as well as a review video for the kayak carrier for you to check out as well.

  • Inexpensive Way To Carry Two Kayaks on a 2014 GMC Acadia
    It sounds like you have raised side rails on your 2014 GMC Acadia and need a set of crossbars as well as a compatible kayak carrier.

  • Wind Fairing for Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack With 58 Inch Crossbars
    The clamps for the old Thule XT fairings have been discontinued, and there are no adapters that are designed to work with your Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 with 58" crossbars, so the best option really is a new wind fairing. I recommend measuring the distance between the feet of your Malone AirFlow2 roof rack to ensure a fit, and so long as they are 43" or less apart the wind fairing I recommend is the 50" Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks # RRRF4. I have added links to a video...
