The flexibility that comes with road trips allow for more spontaneity and adventure. This appeals to many families across Britain as many choose road trips for weekend getaways or camping holidays. With the journey making up as much of the holiday as the destination, motorists need travelling solutions that are convenient and reliable.
Mont Blanc Update their Ranges
16 of the top selling roof bars within this range provides approximately 51% coverage of the UK car parc which equates to about 16.5 million vehicles. With new vehicle applications added to the 2018 offering, the range currently provides 74 different roof bar models. Suitable for vehicles with fixed points, normal roofs and open rails, Supra roof bar kits include fittings to fit hatch, saloon and estate vehicles.
- 100% Assembled
- Easy fit system with fitting tools included
- High-resistance steel construction with plastic protection sleeve to protect luggage and car roofs
- Clear application information and instructions included
- Combined load capacity up to 75kg

The Activa range is a single pack system for vehicles with open roof rails. These bars can also easily be converted for vehicles with integrated rails with the correct adaptor fitting kit that are available separately. This reduces the need to hold additional stock of load bars for both versions and in turn, saving on shelf space and money.
OE quality turbochargers are very reliable. Less than 1% of turbos fail due to a manufacturing fault. Most turbo failures stem from oil starvation, oil contamination or foreign object damage. Thus, installers are advised to identify what caused the first unit to fail, to avoid the risk of premature failure with the replacement.
Activa & AMC Features
- Available with either steel, standard aluminium or the new Aero aluminium load bars. Both our aluminium load bars accommodate T-track fitted accessories

- Load capacity of up to 100kg

New Vehicles with Integrated Factory Rails
New vehicles manufactured with open or integrated factory rails continue to rise across the UK car parc. Integrated roof rails account for approximately 20% of total roof bar sales, 30% for open rails and 50% for fixed point, normal and guttered type roofs.
To cater for this growth, Mont Blanc has enhanced the coverage across the Activa and AMC ranges with 22 new popular vehicles listed.
