The basic roof rack for the ŠKODA Fabia Hatchback model is sure to be appreciated by all who won't even settle for the extra large luggage compartment typical for ŠKODA cars. Thanks to its quality, certified safety and user comfort, the roof rack offers the best solution for transporting less storable objects (such as sports equipment). It is the only way to ensure unchanged comfort of passengers in a fully occupied car. The basic roof rack is mounted by the sideboard and protected by a high-quality lock that discourages nosy people. Using what is known as a T-slot channel, the roof rack can be fitted by additional lockable transport systems (bicycle carriers, ski holders, ski and snowboard roof boxes, baggage trays etc.). The basic roof rack undergoes rigorous tests of lifespan, resistance to corrosion and impact. Its quality is confirmed by successful completion of the City Crash Test, which requires the carrier loaded with 90 to 120 kg to stay attached to the bodywork through 80 milliseconds of 12G overload. In order to be successful in the city crash test, it is also essential that none of the transported objects becomes separated. This ensures maximum safety of passengers inside the car, as well as other traffic participants in front of and behind the car. The loading limit of the rooftop carrier is defined by the maximum allowed load of the roof (including the rack) listed in every car's vehicle registration book.
