For hauling your sticks or boards up into the sky, the RockyMounts LiftOp Roof Rack is tough to beat. The hinged clamp design is padded by rubber gums that flex enough to allow for up to 2. 75 of vertical capacity, which is more than enough to accept even freakishly thick planks. The tubular profile is relatively quiet, saves fuel compared to any wall like rack profile, and the wide clamp design provides a particularly secure grip. The rack attaches with form fitting cable mounts that can clutch onto nearly any crossbars, including stock bars and those of competing brands. The Smalls small rack's clamping area is 22 wide 27. 5 overall and can accept 3 pairs of skis or 2 boards. The Biggie large has a clamping area that's 27. 5 wide 33 overall and can accept 5 pairs of skis or 4 boards. All listed equipment capacities are estimates, and your gear may vary. Each rack measure 5. 5 tall from the top of the crossbar using cable mounts and 4. 25 tall when using T track hardware.
