    Default Roof Bar Weight

    What is the maximum weight i can put on the roof/bars of my signum.

    im planning to pick up a kit car chassis on the weekend it weighs 85kg and am wondering if it is too heavy for the roof.

    yep, realistically most roofbars can only support 50 kgs....you're nudging twice it's weight.. and if you get seen..........

    It should say on the bars. Is it the factory fit roof bars or the Vx roof bars that you attach to the gutter mounts?

    I've got the latter (aero style) on my Signum and I'm sure it gives the max weight capacity. Gimme a sec and I'll check. For some reason 100Kg springs to mind....

    Just checked and I was close - it states 90Kg load capacity on the Vx aero bars.

    Yeah, that's why I thought 100Kg initially as that's what I recall it being on my Astra G. I think(?) the estate bars differ slightly from the Signum ones so maybe enough for the Signum ones to have that 10% less capacity?

    As long as it's all lashed down good and proper then I can't see you having any problems. Maybe just stick a red flag on the end of it given the length.
