Show off your sporty side by installing a roof rack for your Honda Pilot. The best part about roof racks is how versatile they can be, with attachments available for any of your favorite activities. From kayaking to snowboarding, you can find genuine Honda roof rack attachments that are safe and secure for your vehicle.
Even if you’re not one for hiking and camping, roof racks for your Pilot can come in handy when you need it most. Pack more baggage for long road trips or haul more furniture when moving into a new house.
Here are just a few of the most popular roof racks available for your Pilot.
1. Roof bars and crossbars
Standard roof bars and crossbars are necessary for nearly every other attachment. After installing these for your Pilot, your other attachments will have a safe and secure place to connect with your car.
If you don’t have any sporty hobbies like skiing or biking, then these roof racks for your Pilot will still give you the extra packing space to free up some room for your passengers.
Keep bungee cords or rope on hand for when you need the extra roof space. Insecure bindings put you and the drivers around you at risk, so always double check that the bindings are tight and secure before you drive.
2. Bike attachment
The Honda Pilot has bike attachments for both the roof and the back bumper, allowing you to take your bicycle wherever you want.
Where we’re located in Houston, Texas, we have the 4th worst congestion in the country! Traffic can be a nightmare for your time and your gas mileage. So it’s no surprise that the city also has the largest number of bike commuters in Texas. There are plenty of bike paths around the city to make getting around easy.
Depending on where you work, you might be able to drive part way to work, and then switch to your bike during the more congested areas. This way, you can avoid traffic while also taking advantage of a healthy and eco-friendly way to get to work every day.
You can use it for biking on your days off, too! The Pilot roof rack attachment holds two bikes, so you and a friend or family member can drive to a biking trail for a nice day out.
3. Roof Box attachment
Campers, this one is for you. A roof box for your Honda Pilot gives you all the extra space you need to store bulky camping gear and duffle bags.
The roof box locks to keep your things safe. Plus it’s easy to access from the rear, so you don’t need to climb on top of your vehicle to use the extra storage space.
Even if you’re not a camper, this can be a safer way to pack your baggage, too. Simply strapping things to the standard Pilot roof rack has its risks in case you don’t secure it properly. The roof box attachment comes with 13 cu. ft. of storage space, and you don’t need to worry about it slipping off of your car.
4. Kayak attachment
Are there any lakes or rivers near you? Kayaking is a beautiful way to enjoy the great outdoors, but it can get pricy paying to rent out a Kayak every time.
Even if you did manage to jam a Kayak inside your Pilot, it would be dangerous and we don’t recommend it. Instead, buy a Kayak attachment. Even for something heavy and unwieldy like a Kayak, the roof rack for your Pilot will provide a stable and secure way to mount it on top of your vehicle.
5. Surfboard attachment
Live near the coast? There are dozens of surfing beaches just an hour’s drive from Houston, making it the perfect outdoor getaway when you need a break from the city. With a surfboard attachment for your Pilot’s roof rack, you can take a day trip to the beach any time you want.
The soft and secure grips on the Pilot’s surfboard attachment keep your surfboard from getting dented or damaged during transportation. When you’re done hitting the waves, snap the board back to the roof rack to keep your interior dry and sand-free.
You can even get an additional surf strap to carry two boards at once.
6. Skiing and Snowboarding attachment
If you prefer to spend your winters hitting the slopes, don’t forget to pick up a ski or snowboard roof rack attachment for your Pilot. With just a few clicks, you can store your unwieldly skis or snowboards on top of your Honda, saving you more space inside. These attachments even come with oversized buttons, so you can secure or release your skis or snowboards even if you have mittens on.
When you pack up for the day, you can keep the interior of your Honda nice and clean. Storing your skis or snowboards on your Honda’s roof rack keeps the mud and snow outside, where it belongs.
The freedom and flexibility you get with roof rack attachments for your Honda Pilot are no small matter. No matter what kind of activity you enjoy, it’s easier to make that dream adventure possible with the right roof rack for your needs.
Just be sure to follow the instructions carefully and lock everything into place before you drive. A kayak or surfboard falling off your Honda while you’re on the road is a serious safety risk to those around you. Only buy genuine Honda roof racks for your Pilot, so you can rest easy that the attachment is safe, secure, and fits perfectly to your vehicle.
