Focus roof rack?

So I would like to purchase a roof rack for my zx5 for hauling my snowboards, canoe and bikes. I honestly have no clue where to start. Any ideas for brands or where to start?

Yakima or Kona. The only two so far that I have worth worrying about.

I have the Yakima which I really like because it can be removed or installed within minutes and you don't have to put any holes in your roof like most eBay racks. Here's a picture.



And a picture with a fairing. Sorry about all the mud, it's the best picture I have with the fairing on.

It should. It's two door mounts and two that go in the hatch area right? The hatch, body, and roof line are all the same for Zx3 and Zx5. The only differences are the extra doors on the side.

Yes, you are right, everything from the wheelbase to the legroom, cargo space, roofline, e.t.c is all the exact same dimensions, only difference is the ZX5 is 96lbs haevier. The only reason that the ZX5 looks longer is because the front doors are shorter than the ZX3's doors.
