Best Roof Rack for Bike Rack and Kayak Carrier on 2018 Ford Edge With Glass Roof


This is a big ask that I'm not sure is possible. Maybe you can hel. I have a 2018 ford edge with the glass roof and i want a roof rack that can accommodate a bike rack or kayak carrier depending on what im doing. is there anything for my car?


Expert Reply:

There is absolutely a roof rack that will work for your 2018 Ford Edge that has a glass roof. I highly recommend the the Rhino-Rack ROC25 Roof Rack because it is strong enough to allow you to carry a bike rack or kayak and has a refined look on top of your '18 Edge. If you take a look at the accompanying photos, you can see how this rack will look when attached to a Ford Edge with a glass roof.

The Rhino-Rack ROC25 is # RR26XR and uses low-profile aerodynamic bars to ensure you have a quiet ride. The rack's aero bars combine with the rubber vortex strips in its top channels to reduce the amount of noise; the channels can also be used to mount some accessories.

The bar is made from light but very strong anodized aluminum which also resists corrosion. The great aesthetics of this rack also come from its flush design, which means the crossbars will not extend past the sides of your Edge's roof, they match its width. Additionally, the rack offers security in the form of built-in locks which secure the bars to your roof and will secure any channel-mounted carriers to the bars.

For a bike rack the Rhino-Rack MountainTrail Rooftop Bike Carrier # RBC035 will fit and is a great option for a fork-mount bike rack that even includes locks to ensure your bikes and the rack are secure. The kayak carrier I recommend checking out is the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier # RRS520 because it is an easy-to-use post-style carrier that comes with tie-down straps and bow/stern straps. It can carry up to 4 kayaks though you would need extra tie-down straps for that, the Cam-Buckle Cinch Strap and Anchor Kit # RRRBAS-RTD55P-RTD45P.

I have added links to video reviews of both the bike rack and kayak carrier for you to check out as well.
