Roof Rack Cross Bars

So my Stelvio has the roof rails. What cross bars do I need?

depends on what you plan to carry.
you might check thule.com to see specialized or general purpose designs, see what type suits your needs.

Last I looked at the Thule site they didn't have anything that fits our vehicle. But another thread covered it and in the UK they have a nice low profile version called WingBar Edge - I think that there is an equivalent US version with a different name but not 100% on that.

You can also get the Alfa version from your dealer, but those are a bit bulky for my taste.

I think they always fit, they just hadn't updated their website.
seems done now

I have the thule wing bar version; it gives a slightly wider loading area than the edge version (which I had for my Land Rover Discovery).

I got the factory ones from my dealer. They work great and are easy to install. A bit noisy at about 80 mph. Otherwise great.

I was able to get them free by complaining nicely to Alfa Care about my displeasure about not getting car play.

Alfa Fan-
Can you open the sunroof unrestricted with the factory racks? I have seen others post that with the Thule you cannot.
Thanks!

Just fitted the Thule Wing Bars today and they are perfect. Panoramic sunroof opens without issue and I can now carry my kayak and bikes

Looks good. How easy to take on and off? I want to pick some up but only want them on when I need them rather than full time.
