It is the best rack system you can buy for the Subaru. The Racks go on and off in less then 5 min ... the ski racks carry 5 sets of skis , plus you can stack them and the bindings will not hit the roof.
I've had 2 other racks , one on a 300M that was our first rack , had to lay the skis side by side because the bindings would hit the roof. The second were for our 4 runner , those are Thule those made a ton of wind noise so we had to buy the front wind dam. Ended up pop riveting a 3/16 flat sheet of aluminum to the ski rack then mount the wind dam to that. Putting the Thule on/off is a PITA.
yeah i already have the oem subaru roof rack and i love it, just curious about the risers.
