Cost Effective Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe


Hyundai seems to have just released crossbars for the 2019 but say not for use with panoramic roof. Roof rack/cross bars were included in my purchase last Oct so Im hoping these will work just cant open the roof and they will honor the purchase but if I do need to order from you, I want the least expensive removable option for occasionally carrying 1 or 2 kayaks carrying side by side, flat, or other items. I think this seems to be THLB50 steel bars and THKIT4093. I will only need to carry anything, short distances 25 miles or so, 4-6 times a year so noise and wind resistance is not a factor but ease of putting the whole thing on and off when needed is important and I want the protuding bars so I can strap on an even longer bar, pvc pipe or 2x4 if I need to carry anything 5 ft wide or wider. Is this the best solution for what I want to do?

The most cost effective roof rack we currently have for your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is actually a Yakima RoundBar System which is composed of part # Y00410, part # Y28TR, part # Y03536, part # Y06154, and part # Y06151. The great thing about this system is that the round crossbars can be cut down to the exact length you need.

In order to mount your kayaks to the round crossbars I recommend the Rhino-Rack Pads part # RRRWP05. This will be the most cost effective easy to use/remove option we have for your Santa Fe. This vehicle uses fixed mounting points so nearly all of the roof racks will install the same way. The towers that are included with the above kit may take a bit more work to set up but they will be worth it in the long run.

The Thule Square Bar System (THLB50) that you referenced has since been disconnected by the manufacturer which means we do not have the correct parts you need to use it on your vehicle.
