I have a 21 Kona SE and I'm looking for a pair of side roof rails to install. Does anyone know where to find a pair?

It would probably be less expensive for you if you went with the yakima naked roof system - I am assuming you are talking about installing a set of flush rails and building from there. Apologies if I am mistaken.

Just got a rack on and planning on adding a roof box/skibox before summer. (I'm assuming this year will be another car trip type of summer) Does anyone know what max length for a box on Kona is? I mean the roof is pretty short, so I want to maximize the size of the box, but can't find anywhere what the max recommended length is.

Did you get any answers? There was a previous roof basket post with a picture example. In that case, the roof basket was 47 1/4" (120cm for everyone else).

I asked some guys who sell skiboxes and they recommended a skibox called Skiguard 830 T, and that one is 214cm long. I feel like that might poke out over the windshield so much it'll probably interfere with the sensors for windshield wipers and lights. But I don't know.

214cm seems long for a Kona. Great for skis but I'd be worried about the rear hatch opening. Let us know what you do!

The thule frontier is 225 cm. I had trouble finding reliable options that were narrow enough and between 225 and ~190 cm (my xc ski length). I had to add a set of holes so the bar location is technically out of spec but the spacing is still OK (https://images.carid.com/thule/info/pdf/box-mount-dimensions.pdf) and it's seemed rock solid on multiple long drives and a few semi-rugged trips.

eta: Definitely overhangs the windshield but no interference with vision or (as far as i can tell) sensors.
