The La Prealpina bars have a very simple design which simply works! The kit consists of two steel bars with a black non-slip, anti scratch PVC coating. The foot clamps are designed to fit your specific vehicle as they follow the contours of the bodywork. They are made from pressed steel and are finished with a long life anti-corrosion thermo-setting powder coating. The clamps are covered with a durable ABS plastic casing which also contains the lock, found on each mounting point. The bars are perfectly suited for mounting any accessories such as roof boxes, surf boards or bike racks using U-Bolts. While they are rated to hold as indicated below it’s worth checking what your vehicle’s maximum load is as it can sometimes be less than what the bars can hold. To back up the quality the bars have been tested and are TUV/SUD and GS approved.
This set of roof bars are ideal for improving the versatility of your vehicle. A tailor made fit guarantees an exact fit for your vehicle, they also come complete with locks and keys to ensure they are secure. They also come with full instructions making installation pretty easy even for a first timer.
This set of roofbars will fit this vehicle so long as the vehicle comes with solid roof rails, see the image to get an idea of what solid rails looks like, in some markets this car is sold without these rails and therefore a different set of roofbars is required. If you have these rails then this is the correct set of bars.
This car comes in 2 versions, one with rails the other one without rails, this set of bars is for the car without roof rails, see image on left for a example of a normal roof without rails
Unlike a lot of our competitors who either supply flimsy locks and keys or charge separately for locks and keys, our roof bars come with quality metal locks and keys included, this will help to prevent theft and give you extra peace of mind.
Because of their simple design the La Prealpina Exact-Fit bars are guaranteed an exact fit for your vehicle. This means they are really easy to install and fitting for the first time shouldn’t take more than 20-25 minutes. The Exact-fit kit is designed to follow the curvature of your vehicle (either door jamb or fixed point depending on your vehicle) so there is no getting it wrong. The bars are mounted evenly from one side to the other, making sure there is the same equal space either end. Once everything is set in place they can be tightened down with the Allen key which is provided. For extra security, there is a lock and key set provided which locks each mounting point securely to your vehicle.
Please remember that it is your responsibility to make sure that every load you are carrying is safely secured to your vehicle. You must be aware of underground car parks and all overhead obstacles, roof bars, boxes and any associated loads add extra height to your vehicle. You must also be aware of cross winds and anything else that has the ability to affect the road handling of your vehicle. You have to be particularly aware of flexible loads such as surfboards, planks of wood etc, these must be properly tethered to the front and rear of your vehicle. Roofboxes must be loaded and used with due care.
