The innovative Revo-Rack has been manufactured by us since 2016 it is made from 25mm T5 Aluminium & Magnesium tube and thus the frame only weighs 1.7kg. The design of this rack allows it to fit in under 90 seconds, no bolts, no brackets, no straps, no hassle & no paint damage : ever. We manufacture the rack in either a polished anodised finish which is similar to chrome, or a version that's powder coated black. With all the effort Mazda puts into making the Mx5 light a heavy stainless rack seem to be missing the point.
Revo-Rack has been independently tested by TUV Italy part of the global TUV testing and certification business. The rack went through speed, braking and force tests, to ISO 11154:2006 the international standard for car roof bars and the European Directive for general safety 2002/95/CE. Revo-Rack passed all these tests : It won't fly off !
Revo-Rack fits all MX5 models and the roof can be operated on the Roadster Coupe & RF with the rack in place ( Video's below )
The Revo-Rack uses vacuum cup technology it sits on three 115mm vacuum cups these are rated as being able to hold an 18kg load each. These can in theory hold a 54kg load. Vacuum cups are not the same as suction cups they are much much stronger and were developed in the late 1960's to hold film camera's to cars.
Vacuum cups employ the force of atmospheric pressure to grip a surface: When a vacuum exists between the cup and the surface on which it is attached, the weight of Earth's atmosphere holds the cup in place with incredible force.
Unlike suction cups that produce a vacuum as they pull away from the surface, Revo-Racks vacuum cups use a hand-actuated pump to efficiently remove air from between the rubber pad and the attaching boot/trunk lid thus creating a much more reliable hold. Because the full face of the pad is brought into contact with the boot/trunk lid, distortion is reduced, allowing the cup to be used with very little risk of damage.
