At Patrick Accessories, we stock the Internet's largest selection of Genuine Subaru Roof Racks available. Every single Subaru model except for the BRZ sports sedan can be fitted with a wide variety of specialized roof racks. Some models, such as the Forester, Outback, Tribeca and XV-Crosstrek, come from the factory with built-in roof rails and simply neded to have a cross-bar set installed to form a basic roof rack. Once installed, any genuine Subaru attachments can then be added for specific carrying requirements such as transporting bicycles, snowboards, skis, etc.
Other models, including the Impreza, Legacy, STI and WRX, may have no rails and will require the installation of a roof carrier base kit which includes rails and a cross-bar set. Finally, certain models like the Baja probably already have the rails and cross-bar set installed at the factory and are ready to receive any one of the many specialized roof racks available to add extra functionality.
Installing a specialized roof rack (or hitch-mounted carrier) is a great idea if you do a lot of outdoor activities and need an easy way to carry your gear. If you're driving a family vehicle and transporting lots of people and luggage or other cargo, a roof rack will provide the extra storage space you need. Roof racks are made for a variety of functions and include:
- Bike carriers (with or without a separate front-wheel holder)
- Cargo baskets
- Kayak carriers
- Standard and extended cargo carriers
- Ski and snowboard carriers
In addition, certain Subaru models such as the Baja, Forester, Outback, STI, Tribeca and XV-Crosstrek are able to receive a hitch-mounted bike carrier, capable of transporting multiple bicycles.
Why Buy OEM Subaru Roof Racks?
When you buy an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) part or accessory, you're purchasing a piece of equipment that you know was made expressly for your particular vehicle by the factory or the factory's certified supplier. While sometimes a bit more expensive than products offered by third party aftermarket providers, getting a genuine part or accessory ensures that the fit will be right, the quality will be up to specs and warranties will be included.
When considering the installation of a roof rack for your Subaru, going with a genuine, factory-authorized system will provide you with the assurance that you're getting something guaranteed to work properly with your specific vehicle.
