FAQ - roof boxes
Here we collect all "Frequently Asked Questions" related to our roof boxes. However, if you have any further questions feel free to contact us
If allowed by the traffic regulations and the speed recommendation of the vehicle manufacturer, we recommend a maximum speed of 130 km / h. For some vehicles, there are separate speed recommendations for roof load. We also recommend adjusting the speed to the road and wind conditions.
Maximum weight of the load
Our roof boxes are designed for the transport of surf equipment (boards, sails, masts and booms), which ensure an even distribution of loads on the roof racks of the vehicle due to their length. They can transport up to 130 kg. At the same time, the specifications for the roof rack and information provided by the vehicle manufacturer must not be exceeded. When loading, use the load securing system to ensure that the load is properly fixed.
The roof box can be mounted on all common roof racks and distances between the bars. In order to maximize the breathability of the bottom, we have tried to use only as many cross struts as necessary. The roof carrier must therefore have a minimum length of 1350 mm (1400 mm roof box width) or 1630 mm (1680 mm roof box width). For roof racks with longitudinal beams, e.g. Fiamma, this requirement can be circumvented. In this case, we are happy to advise you!
Additional fuel consumption
Of course we have tried to design a streamlined roof box. However, the flow generted at cruising speed depends heavily on the vehicle geometry and the mounting position. Therefore, it is not possible to provide a single value. So far, however, we have not observed any additional consumption above 1 l / 100 km.
