Constructed of a triple-channel aluminum design, soft Krayton footpads,and an aesthetically pleasing aerodynamic design to complement todays vehicles Saris Load Bars will take your bikes anywhere your car can go. Call us for fitting information.
Strengths: SO easy to mount. I've used Yak and Thule in the past, but a monkey could set up a Saris rack. Do you know how to turn a know clockwise or counter-clockwise? Then you now how to affix Saris load bars to your roof.
Weaknesses: none that I can tell
Seriously--price out the big boys, then look at Saris. I've mounted luggage, ladders, surf boards (big SUP boards!), a Sears cargo box (back in the day) as well as bikes, bike wheels, and snowboards/skis. I've been using Saris for over 10 years, and as long as I can find their stuff, I'll keep using!

Anyone ever use longer than recommended load bars on an Acura Integra 3 door/hatchback? I am looking to carry 3 bikes and a kayak across the country and I don't think I can fit it with my 48" bars. I am sure it will fit with 58" bars but I am worried about putting that long of bars on my roof when ... Read More »
