What Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Do You Recommend for a 2017 Ford Edge with a Glass Roof?


I have a 2017 ford edge with a glass roof no no preexisting bars. I am looking for the best roof rack and corresponding kayak carrying attachment. Any guidance you could provide would be helpful.

We have some great options for a roof rack and kayak carrier for your 2017 Ford Edge with a glass roof. For a compatible roof rack system, I recommend the following parts:

- Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 54" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA137B-2
- Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Naked Roofs or Fixed Mounting Points - Qty 4 # RRRLKVA
- Custom DK Fit Kit for 4 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Legs - Naked Roof # DK432

The Rhino-Rack Votex Aero crossbars include a slim, elliptical crossbar shape helps to create an extremely aerodynamic system. The bars are made of lightweight, structural-grade anodized aluminum that are rustproof.

As for the kayak carrier for the roof rack, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Nautic 581 Rear Loading Kayak Carrier # RR581. The Nautic 581 will be able to install into the c-channels of the vortex aero crossbars. In addition, the Nautic 581 comes with 2 load straps with padded cam buckles as well as 2 bow/stern tie downs.
