Expert Reply:

The best economical roof rack for your 2021 Hyundai Kona depends on whether your vehicle has a bare roof or flush factory rails.

If your Kona has a bare roof, I recommend the following setup:

- Round 48" CrossBars for Yakima Roof Rack System # Y00408
- BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Naked Roofs # Y00146
- BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers - Qty 2 # Y06131
- BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers - Qty 2 # Y06175
- Yakima Same-Key Lock Cores # Y07204

With the Yakima round bar setup, you will be able to have a maximum weight capacity of 165 pounds, which is plenty of capacity to mount your skis on your roof. Another great thing is the lock cores that add extra security to your system. As with all roof rack systems, it is important to confirm with your owner's manual as to whether your roof can handle that much weight.

If you have flush factory rails, the best quality roof rack that won't break your wallet involves the following parts:

- Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbars - Steel - 50" # TH712300
- Evo Flush Rail Feet for Thule Crossbars - Flush Side Rails # TH710601
- Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet - 6094 # TH67JV
- Thule One-Key Lock Cylinders # TH450400

With this square bar system, you will also have a maximum weight capacity of 165 and the theft-deterring locks. Also like the Yakima roundbar system, the square bars are compatible with a lot of our available ski carriers that can clamp onto the bars without an additional adaptor.

For the ski carrier itself, a great quality and economical choice that will fit both of these crossbar setups is the Inno Gravity Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Clamp On # INA952. The Gravity will allow you to transport up to 3 pairs of fat skis and 2 snowboards. A great feature of the Gravity is the memory mount hardware. Once you fit the carrier to your crossbars, you will not have to adjust the tightness of the Gravity each time you install it. It also comes with a locking cover that secures your gear to the carrier.
