Best Bike Rack and SUP Carrier for a 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport  


What is the best bike rack and best SUP rack for my Hyundai with a glass roof? I have the Hyundai racks installed already.


Expert Reply:

We have a few options for bike racks and SUP racks for roof racks.

Your 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe with factory racks will not have a lot of space to carry both. With that in mind, the best combination to make use of this space is the Thule ProRide XT, part # TH598004, with the Thule DockGrip, part # TH895.

The ProRide XT is a frame mount bike rack that clamps onto your factory bars. It takes up minimal space (only 13" wide) on crossbars, leaving plenty of room for other accessories. It features a quick and easy installation and a padded clamp that protects your bike's frame. It supports tires up to 3" wide and 29" in diameter, so check your bike's dimensions. I've linked to a video review of this this rack. If you need something more specialized to accommodate your bike's specs, then we do have options.

The DockGrip is a saddle-style kayak/SUP carrier that also clamps onto your factory bars. The four individual feet of this carrier can move independently of each other to get the perfect fit for both your SUP and your roof rack. It comes with two padded load straps and two tie-downs. I've linked to a video review of this carrier as well. Like most kayak/SUP carriers, this requires a minimum distance of 24" between your crossbars, so be sure to measure that on your vehicle.
