ROLA announced the launch of its Modular Rail Extreme Cross Bar systems comprised of four cross bar lengths and four-end support mounting styles to fit most vehicles. According to a press release, the modular bars are manufactured with anodized aluminum alloy for sturdiness while also reduced weight.
Rubber buffer strips deliver a quiet ride with no drag or wind noise, while the universal T-channel slot allows for extreme carrying of mount accessories. An integrated under-cover slider and measuring system make installation quick and easy.
The Modular Rail Extreme Cross Bar systems come in four styles: the Door Frame Extended (DFE) Series, used for vehicles with door frame or normal roofs; the Fixed Point Extended (FPE) Series, used for vehicles with fixed mounting point roofs; the Rail Bar Universal (RBU) Series, used for vehicles with raised side rails; and the Rail Bar Extended (RBE) Series, used for vehicles with unique raised or flush side rails.
“It was imperative for us to build all four styles to be strong and versatile, allowing users the ability to transform their vehicles into bike-hauling, kayak-lugging, cargo-carrying machines,” said David Pinkston, senior design engineer for the ROLA brand.
The Modular Rail Extreme Cross Bar systems are available as a fully configured kit or for purchase separately in sub kits. ROLA also offers a unique key-alike lock kit in single, four, or eight unit packs. The lock kits – sold separately from the cross bar systems – allow the same key to be used on all ROLA lockable accessories.
