Best Roof Rack for a Kayak on a 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV With No Existing Rails or Crossbars


I have a 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV that has nothing on the roof and I need a roof rack. I want to carry a single kayak. What do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

For your 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV with nothing on the roof, I recommend the 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV Roof Rack by Yakima which consists of:

- Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425
- BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y28TR
- BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06123
- BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06181

Also, the Yakima Same Key System # Y07204 which will allow you to secure the roof rack to your roof.

To carry your kayak I recommend the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier # S512. This rack will mount to your cross bars and folds down for storage. The rack is expandable to carry 2 kayaks if you should ever need to. The rack also includes 2 specially designed tie-down straps to secure the watercraft to your roof-rack crossbars and the padded buckles won't scratch your kayak.
