Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2015 Ford Edge with Glass Roof  


Hi, I have Ford Edge 2015 with glass roof, I need your advise for Roof Rack. I am going to use it to carry my kayak. I found your Rhino Rack vortex rack. are they good for this reason or I should use other product?


Expert Reply:

We have roof racks confirmed to fit both the 2015 Ford Edge with a bare roof and also the version like yours that has the glass roof with flush-mount rails that run front-to-back.

The Rhino-Rack setup I suggest is their Vortex Aero rack made of parts # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX024. The Vortex rack will typically be quieter than the square bar rack.

We have many kayak carriers that fit both types of roof rack bars and all of them are shown on the linked page.

Great carrier options for either bar are the Yakima JayLow # Y04073 which can carry one or two kayaks, depending on how you set it up. We also have load-assist carriers such as the Yakima HandRoll # Y04082-2 that has rollers that let you more easily load one kayak from the rear of the vehicle.

No matter which carrier you choose be sure to check your owner's manual to confirm the car's roof has the weight capacity needed for the combined weight of the roof rack/kayak carrier/kayak. The linked article will help you select the best carrier for your specific kayak.
