How to Install the Malone AirFlow2 Universal Roof Rack on a 2018 Subaru Forester


Speaker 1: Today on a 2018 Subaru Forester, we're gonna be test fitting the Malone Airflow2 Roof Rack System, part number MPG215. These are the 50 inch long bars and they wrap around your factory raised side rails. The Malone Airflow Roof Rack System is great for carrying a wide variety of accessories on your roof while freeing up space inside your vehicle.The bars have an aerodynamic shape to them and that coupled with the rubber strip at the top, as well as the one that you would cut to length that goes underneath. That's gonna cut down the wind noise and drag while you're driving, eliminating the need for fairings which is what you would have with your round and square bars.Also, what sets us apart from the others, we have this latch that opens up at the end. You can use T-Track accessories with this but instead of having to remove the rubber strip to install them, you simply push down the rubber strip and install your accessory. These are very easy to install, they simply clamp around your existing factory raised side rail.

And what's unique about these as well, is the fact that everything comes together. There's no assembly required once you want these installed on your vehicle.Also, they do have these locks on the end on each side. They do come with it so it is secured to your vehicle once it's installed. And two of these, once you remove them are actually the integrated tools that they can tighten these two roof racks. So you can these on and off with ease when you're traveling.

Next, we can give you a couple of quick measurements. From the center of the roof to the bottom of the bar, is gonna be three and a half inches and from the center to the top is gonna be four and a half inches. So that's plenty of space for those roof accessories that wrap around your bars as opposed to the T-Track.I would like to point out though, with vehicles such as this that have the sunroof, you may not be able to use this once those accessories are installed. Now that I've gone over some of the features of the roof rack system, let's go ahead and show you how it installs. We already have our front bar installed on to our factory raised side rails, our next step is, we can set this in places you don't need any assembly prior to installing them.We'll set them in place on both sides and our next step is to measure from center to center, so you get our crossbar spread even on both sides.

And then we'll measure for our crossbar overhang on both sides as well and make sure that's even. If that's even on both sides, now we can use our integrated tool and tighten it down. With everything tightened down, we'll take our encap here, push it in and lock it in place. Now we're ready to load up our gear and hit the road.And there you have it for the Malone Airflow2 Roof Rack System on our 2018 Subaru Forester.
