Awesome Product
I have factory mounting points on my 2017 CX-3 and this product dots like a glove w/o those side clips. Super quiet around town and even cruising 80 down the highway through the mountains for hours at a time. I recommend this over paying too much for a jigsaw puzzle of a product for that other name brand. Super easy to install and looks great!

Great Product
Looks very professional, a clean look on my 2015 Taurus coupled with the ski rack. Looking to get the wind fearing in the near future to cut down on the little bit of wind noise that I hear. Overall a very sturdy nice piece of equipment. Install took maybe an hr, for this and the big rhino ski rack.

Great Custom Rack
Ordered my naked roof rack through customer service over the phone. Hector was very helpful in getting exactly what I needed. The racks came partially assembled which was a surprise and very helpful since I tend to lose small pieces. Made the install very easy and fit is perfect. Rack looks terrific on the car!

Love It!
I love this roof rack. I got it for my 2008 Honda Fit and it looks amazing. Most everything came pre-assembled except for the clamps, which are made for my car make/model, and the install took less than 15 minutes. Thanks for the awesome roof rack!
