VOLKSWAGEN AMAROK DUAL CAB
TOUGHEST AMAROK ROOF RACK!
Wondering how to make your Amarok the toughest in the street? Why not take a look at the all-new Wedgetail rack? The Wedgetail rack is a new generation roof rack combining the aesthetics and functionality of the new generation composite style assembled rack with the traditional strength and proven identity of an Australian Manufacturer. Wedgetail roof racks integrate the all-new Wedge-lock glass-reinforced corners that significantly increase the strength of this design, allowing us to offer you a full offroad rating regardless of what road you travel. All Wedgetail racks are manufactured here in Melbourne and Sydney Australia by longstanding industry veteran, Tradesman Roof Rack
How does it fit?
The Wedgetail roof rack to suit the Volkswagen Amarok fits using the existing 6mm mounting settings in the roof of the vehicle. We then attach a small Lug mount which is sealed from water ingress using a suitable roof and gutter silicone. Once these are fitted, we attach our Wedge-wing one piece mounting kit to which the Wedgetail platform connects. The advantages of this kind of mounting system don't just stop with a higher load rating and improved aesthetics, but it also allows for easy removal. The Wedgetail is wholly removed from the vehicle via four bolts, leaving only four small brackets sealed to the roof.
How do accessories attach?
The wedgetail platform uses sturdy crossbars that run to the left and right of the vehicle. This crossbar incorporates a heavy-duty channel both facing upwards and downwards. These channels allow any Wedgetail accessories to be quickly locked in or out; this also means that a large variety of our competitor's accessories can easily be fitted to the Wedgetail rack if necessary.
All Wedgetail Racks come standard with a wind deflector to minimise wind noise as much as possible. As well as this Wedgetail racks also include our unique Wedge-flow crossbar design which is the culmination of years of design experience in minimising wind noise. The Wedgetail rack to suit the Volkswagen Amarok is no different, we understand how smooth and quite an Amarok is on the road, so we have kept this in mind to ensure we have gone to every length to ensure you have a rack that is quiet.
One thing you can be sure about with a Wedgetail rack is that no matter what road you are on in this country our full load rating will apply. Wedgetail racks do not need to be de-rated in offroad conditions due to the design and construction methods used, including our Wedge-lock corners. The load rating for the Wedgetail rack fitted to a Volkswagen Amarok is 100kg. However, you must be aware of your vehicle's roof loading. This information will be available from your dealer. It is essential that you take the weight of the Wedgetail platform off your roof rating, and this will give you your legal carrying capacity. (the reason we don't list this on the website is that it can vary between model variants).
