Get to the mountain for some serious carving and Ollie rad airtime without having to eat your board on the way. A snowboard rack can easily fit any of more than 250 vehicle types so that you can safely stow your board on your roof rather than take up valuable inside cargo space.
How do you get the right snowboard rack? Answer is simple. Stay online and use any of the Quick links to take you to service sites where you can put together the exact rack system that best suits your year-round sports needs. Think snowboarding today, but perhaps it'll be camping or mountain biking in the summer. Your rack system should be flexible and adapt to your cargo-carrying needs and at an affordable price.
So, get started by making a note of your vehicle type and year of manufacture. If you're gonna pick-up a snowboard rack, you want to note whether your vehicle currently sports a factory installed 2-bar load system along the outside rails. This is important since the rack systems work either in tandem with factory installed racks or are affixed to vehicles which do not have gutters via aero foots standing on rubber pads.
The snowboard rack clips over one or several boards, depending upon the accessory width that you select. However, before you reach that decision you'll need to designate the length of the two horizontal load bars, plus select the locking accessories to affix the load bars to your factory rack.
Most of your rack sizing issues have been sorted out by the major manufacturers such as Thule, Yakima and Pro Line amongst others. You key-in the model and year and then you follow the screen prompt to determine the load bars and the four lock cylinders to secure your rack and snowboard to your vehicle (and not to the greedy hands of a bad guy looking to thieve boards from innocents).
Based on your boarding needs, pick the snowboard rack for either a single or multiple boards (or skis). You might save costs by also adding your bike rack to your initial set up so that you assemble the entire system upfront. You'll be ready to smoke the mountain now that you can quickly transport key equipment without the fuss and mess of loading a mucky board into your vehicle.
