Best Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2019 Hyundai Tuscon w/ Bare Roof  


I am looking to put 2 kayaks on my tuscon. Unfortunately there are no rails on my roof. What kits do i need? Most of the stuff i find is for vehicles that have roof rails.

I would be happy to help you set your 2019 Hyundai Tucson up to transport your kayaks. You are going to need a roof rack but lets start with the kayak carrier. I recommend the Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - J-Style, Post Style, or Saddle - 2 Kayaks or SUPs item # TH890000. The Compass allows you to transport two kayaks on your roof rack crossbars. You will be able to carry in the stacker, J-style, or saddle position to maximize usable space on your crossbars. This carrier works with composite and plastic hulls and tie down straps are included. I have linked a review video along with a picture so you can see this carrier in action.

For your roof rack I recommend the 2019 Hyundai Tucson Roof Rack by Yakima. The roof rack Includes:

Yakima HD Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 55" Long - Qty 2 item # Y01156

BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Naked Roofs - Qty 4 item # Y28TR

HD Bar SL Adapter for Yakima BaseLine, SkyLine, TimberLine, and RidgeLine Towers - Qty 4 item # Y03541

BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers - Qty 2 item # Y06130

BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers - Qty 2 item # Y06178

Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 4) item # Y07204
