      2017 S60 Inscription Ski rack

      Hello All. I am desperately trying to find load bars and ski attachments for a new S60 inscription. Volvo doesn't offer them for the extended model. Has anyone found a solution to this? thanks in advance for all the answers.

      I don't understand why Thule's traverse feet for their square and aero crossbars are listed to fit the S60, but not the Inscription.

      These grip around the door frame. It's worth your time to visit a rack shop or REI to check it out for yourself.

      I also found out after taking delivery that the load bars from my old S60 don't fit on the Inscription, it's missing the mounting holes in the door frame. I guess the Chinese do not like to ski, kayak, canoe, etc. It's a weird omission.

      P.S. - my load bars are listed in the Classified section. Getting ready to move out of state so if anyone with a "standard" S60 wants them I'm what you call a "motivated" seller.

      That is odd, but on the other hand, the Thule doesn't require any mounting holes.

      Here's a video of the installation. It's not on a Volvo, the the process is the same, and you can see that it just grips underneath the door frame.

      Did you ever find a rack for the Inscription? I'm having the same issue. I tried to adapt the Thule bracket for the S60 but it does not work. Any ideas?

      Question 2018 S60 Inscription roof rack impossible?

      I am also finding out that my new 2018 S60 Inscription cannot support the Volvo roof racks. Has anyone ever found and used a roof rack on the S60 Inscription?

      It's not easy for accessory mfgs to keep up with every model year even when there's no change from one year to the next. If you search for a couple of years earlier vehicle, you'll find some options with Thule and Yakima Also, check with your dealer. The factory accessory rack for our V60 was less than half the price as the same parts from Thule.
