Are Clamp-On Adapters for Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Compatible With 2018 Hyundai Kona Rails


I have a Hyundai Kona with the raised roof rails and I was wondering if the Surco Safari Rack Clamp on adapters would work for that kind of rails.


Expert Reply:

The 2018 Hyundai Kona has flush-mounted rails on its roof, which are not the type of raised rails that are required to use the Clamp-On Adapters for Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket # SP1101.

You can still use a cargo basket on your Kona but you are going to need to mount it on a roof rack and I recommend checking out the rack from Yakima, which fits your Kona and is made up of CoreBar Crossbars # Y00421, RidgeLine Towers # Y00145 and RidgeClip Fit Kit # Y06022.

For a roof basket a great option from Yakima is the MegaWarrior # Y07080 which is 52" long x 48" wide x 6-1/2" tall, made of weather-resistant galvanized steel and even includes a wind fairing to help minimize the noise you would get with other roof baskets.

To secure the MegaWarrior and help protect your investment you can lock it to your roof rack with the Locking Mount Brackets # Y07064. These brackets include SKS Lock Cores which can be changed out and I recommend using the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07206, which is a quantity of 6 so you can use 4 to secure your roof rack and the other 2 on the Locking Mount Brackets to get everything keyed alike.
