At Patrick Accessories, we stock the Internet's largest selection of Genuine Subaru Roof Racks available. Every single Subaru model except for the BRZ sports sedan can be fitted with a wide variety of specialized roof racks. Some models, such as the Forester, Outback, Tribeca and XV-Crosstrek, come from the factory with built-in roof rails and simply neded to have a cross-bar set installed to form a basic roof rack. Once installed, any genuine Subaru attachments can then be added for specific carrying requirements such as transporting bicycles, snowboards, skis, etc.
Other models, including the Impreza, Legacy, STI and WRX, may have no rails and will require the installation of a roof carrier base kit which includes rails and a cross-bar set. Finally, certain models like the Baja probably already have the rails and cross-bar set installed at the factory and are ready to receive any one of the many specialized roof racks available to add extra functionality.
Installing a specialized roof rack (or hitch-mounted carrier) is a great idea if you do a lot of outdoor activities and need an easy way to carry your gear. If you're driving a family vehicle and transporting lots of people and luggage or other cargo, a roof rack will provide the extra storage space you need. Roof racks are made for a variety of functions and include:
Bike carriers (with or without a separate front-wheel holder)
Standard and extended cargo carriers
Ski and snowboard carriers
In addition, certain Subaru models such as the Baja, Forester, Outback, STI, Tribeca and XV-Crosstrek are able to receive a hitch-mounted bike carrier, capable of transporting multiple bicycles.
