Revo-Rack is a completely new type of Mazda MX5 MK4/ND Luggage Rack that eliminates the risk of paint damage, caused by steel clamps or straps on the fragile boot lid edge. Revo-Rack was developed for the MK4/ND as the panel gaps are only 2-3mm there is no room for a traditional luggage rack clamp on the
boot lid edge.

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. Its the only luggage rack for sale globally certified to this level.

With the Revo-Rack no metal touches your MX5 only soft rubber vacuum cups these use the pressure of the atmosphere to secure the rack to your Mazda's boot lid paint damage is impossible. The rack spreads the load over wide area 300cm2+ so it fine on soft aluminium boot lid.

This model of the Revo-Rack is for the UK RF or ND with the lip spoiler an additional hole is in one of the cross rails, allow the vaccum cups to be mounted closer together thus reducing the foot print of the rack on the boot lid.


Why a Revo-Rack Mazda MX5 Luggage Rack ?

No clamps on the fragile aluminium boot lid edge
No bolts
No drilling
No Straps
No paint damage
Due to the 1/8" panel gap on the ND MX5 its too small for a traditional clamp to fit, the 45 degree lip inside the boot makes this almost impossible.
Revo Racks load carrying capacity has been rated at 20kg
Not immediately obvious how to release the rack - Impossible to pull off, therefore theft is difficult.
If you do stop for a prolonged period and are concerned about your luggage we suggest you remove the rack and luggage and place it inside your car, a 30 second task.

If you MX5 ND does not have a rear spoiler we ask you to purchase the standard Revo-Rack Black


The Rack Frame :

This ND MX5 luggage rack is manufactured from 1" 6063-T5 tubing this is an aluminium and magnesium alloy ( it will never rust ) As a result the rack frame weighs only 1.7kg perfect for the ND's aluminium boot lid. The cross bars are machine welded in place to ensure consistency, the rack is powder coated black. The rack measures 90x42cm

The Supports :

The rack is secured to your MX5 using three 5" vacuum cups, rated by the manufacturer as capable of holding an 40lb load each. These are very different to suction cups.

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 surface thus creating a much more reliable hold. Because the full face of the pad is brought into contact with the surface, distortion is reduced, allowing the cup to be used with very little risk of damage.

The Revo-Racks vacuum cup's pump feature a plunger with a red line, which serves as a vacuum indicator. Introduced in the1960's, this safety device is still recognized as one of the most reliable warning systems available. A few strokes of the plunger evacuate the vacuum pad, causing it to seal securely to the attaching surface. When the cup is attached completely, the plunger stops moving and the red line is hidden within the pump. A visible red line indicates if air has leaked back into the pad, making vacuum insufficient to use the cup. However, if the red line becomes visible while the cup is in use, a check valve allows the user to re pump the cup without losing the remaining vacuum.

"Huge shoutout to the people across the pond at Revo-Rack. They didn’t pay me or anything to endorse them, but the rack is honestly the best possible solution for adding storage capacity to the world’s favorite roadster. It left no marks and I am sure it would work well on other vehicles too. At around $300 the rack seemed expensive at first, but it worked flawlessly and even kept all that camping gear rock steady into triple digit speeds at one point. Plus it’s something that I’ll continue to use in the future. "
