The load capacity of a roof rack depends on its type and the material it is made of. The most durable type of roof rack is fixed point roof racks, which are properly secured in place, ensuring a super-strong connection that is able to support the maximum weight. These roof racks are usually made of metal and can handle over 300 pounds of additional weight.

The other types of roof racks are less durable yet also provide enough strength to handle typical loads, such as a small or medium-size cargo box, a bike, and even a lightweight kayak. As a general rule, the maximum weight capacity of a roof rack is provided by its manufacturer, so you can always find the right one to meet your needs. At the same time, you should always keep in mind the maximum load supported by your vehicle’s roof and consider the weight of your roof rack system itself to avoid deformation.
