Recommended Roof Rack to Carry 2 Kayaks on 2014 Ford Focus  


I need assistance with getting the correct product . I have a 2014 Ford Focus Hatchback.It does have the grooves in the in the roof, I need a roof rack that is quiet and also a kayak carrier for 2 kayaks. I would like a kayak lift assist for one side if I load on by myself. Thank you

We carry many roof rack and kayak carrier options for your 2014 Ford Focus. The roof rack that I recommend is the Yakima Q Tower roof rack that includes two 58 inch crossbars, # Y00409, the BaseLine Towers # Y28TR, RoundBar Adapters # Y03536, and BaseClips # Y06135 and # Y06105. This will provide you with two crossbars to mount your kayak carrier to.

You can mount your kayak directly to the crossbars, but to prevent scratching your kayak, I recommend using kayak carriers like the Yakima JayLow J-Style Kayak Carrier, # Y04073. This carrier supports your kayak with rubber pads to prevent scratching and includes straps and bow and stern tie-downs to secure your kayak to your vehicle. It also includes ramps on the carrier to make loading a little easier.

I have included a video of the kayak carrier for you to check out. I have also included a FAQ article about roof racks.

Best roof rack system for a 2014 Ford Focus 4 door that currently does not have anything? I will be carrying 1 or 2 kayaks. It does have a sunroof.

The best roof rack setup for your Focus Sedan is the Thule Evo System that consists of # TH711420, # TH710501, and # TH145065. This will give you the quietest, sturdiest, nicest looking rack on the market.
