This complete multi-purpose base roof rack is for the 2014 to 2017 (check guide for other years) Mazda 3 5 Door Hatchback that has a "bare" or "normal" roof, and includes models equipped with a sunroof. System includes two load bars, four towers and the complete vehicle clip kits. Locks are recommended and available separately in match sets.
The Yakima BaseClips are specifically engineered for a vehicle and has protective rubber pads which attach to the base of the BaseLine Towers and rest directly on the roof. Custom formed metal brackets with a powder-coat finish provides maximum strength and durability.
The Yakima BaseLine Towers architecture uses a bi-axial DropHook clip motion to secure the clip to the roof and a BarBed design to adapt to the curved styling of modern vehicle roof lines. This means the pitch of the bar and the toe angle of the towers can all be adjusted to better match the contour a vehicle's roofline.
Yakima CoreBar load bars are strong, quiet and aerodynamic providing increased maximum capacity, no whistling or howling and low wind drag. The galvanized steel is rolled formed and vinyl wrapped to enhance durability and increase the corrosion resistance.
The weight capacity for this base roof rack is up to 165 pounds evenly distributed. The load bar length is 50 inches. Distance from the front load bar to the rear is 32 inches, center to center. Review the instruction manual below for complete technical details.
