The SAGA Falcon Ridge Sprinter Van Roof Rack’s low profile keeps wind noise down and miles per gallon up, while it’s modular design is easy to customize to suit any Sprinter van layout.
All sizes are for the High Roof models.
We install the SAGA Sprinter Van Modular Roof Rack over safari-style tubular racks for some very solid reasons. It’s low profile, ships un-assembled (lower rates), and is modular … have a vent here, and an AC unit over there? Oooh… and a couple of solar panels up front, yeah — right about there. No big deal, simply adjust the cross members to suit your needs.
Finally, the biggest selling point is it’s low-profile. Why would you want to turn the aerodynamic Sprinter Platform into a flying brick with a bulky rack? The SAGA Sprinter Van Roof Rack keeps wind noise to a minimum and reduces crosswind wandering by sticking low to the Sprinter’s roof. To dress up the rack, we typically add a Fiamma F45s Awning to our installs, along with Code 4 LED lights. A perfect complement to this rack is the Zamp Obsidian line of US-Built (with a 25-year output warranty) solar panels. Sure those panels are spendy, but worth it when you look at the details. Remember, garbage in garbage out.
Contact us to schedule an install, or to put together a rack package for a killer deal. Rack assembly typically takes 8 hours for those doing it for the first timer.

Unlike many Sprinter Van Roof Racks on the market, this rack sits flush with the top of the Sprinter Van, keeping the drag coefficient in check. But, that’s not all that this cargo rack for Sprinter Van’s can boast. There’s no gap at the front to split the wind and cause a buffeting noise at speed. It also sits about 5 inches above the Sprinter van, so you’re not adding a ton of height to the top of the van, or loading your gear up high for a tippy ride going around curves. Best of all, the low profile ensures your Sprinter is not guzzling fuel like Jim Bob’s big-block Chevy.
- Low fuel mileage impact
- Reduced buffeting and wind noise at highway speed
- Center of gravity is kept low for handling/clearance
- Fits 144, 170, 170 extended
