This is a complete multi-purpose base roof rack for the Acura MDX with a bare or "normal" roof from 2014 to 2019 (check guide for other years). Includes models equipped with a sunroof. Locks recommended and sold separately, see related products.
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 JetStream load bars are strong, quiet and aerodynamic providing maximum capacity, no whistling or howling and low wind drag. The aluminum BoxBeam construction has a dedicated slot for tower attachment and a separate t-slot track for mounting certain carriers.
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 thin, metal brackets with rubber contact patches grip to the edge of the door frame.
The weight capacity for this base roof rack is 165 pounds evenly distributed. The load bar length is 60 inches. Distance from the front load bar to the rear is 32 inches, center to center. Use the links below for complete details on each individual component and installation instructions.
