I've got a cx-30 premium with the silver side roof rails, and a pile of Thule stuff including the aero crossbars from my Mazda3 that I was planning to put on this. Come to find out Thule hasn't made feet/mounts for this car with rails yet.

Does anyone have a lead on when these will be available? It's been almost a year, I'm guessing due to covid, but still that seems like a long time. 🤦

I'm like you. I have Thule rook racks and kayak racks from my previous car and was hoping to just get new rook mounts but no joy. Thule doesn't have them and doesn't know when they might (I called customer service)
I gave up and bought a new set of Yakama mounts and rails. Even this was a struggle as I had to order mounts, attachment clips, and rails from three different sources. They go on relatively easily but not as easily as the Thule. Yakama is a pricey brand and I would say overpriced for what it is.

Yeah that sucks. I don't really want to change over everything and I like the Thule system. I'm wondering if another fit kit happens to fit the cx30. I have no idea how to go about finding that out though.

They do have a Thule system... just bought mine for kayaks...
Right, but that clamps the the sides of the car. Won't work with my factory side rails that are on the roof.

The racks that mount to the side rails are made by Thule for Mazda.
They have a integrated torque knob under the cover so they are removable with no tools.
It is a very strong system but the bar length is limited between the stanchions.

Which ones are you talking about? Do you have a link? Thanks.

Well I bought the OEM crossbars, and now I find out that my Thule force cargo box is too long and/or doesn't adjust far enough forward. At max adjustment it hits the tailgate when it's opened. :( Trying to figure out if I can move the crossbars further forward than is stated in the instructions?!

I had some luck and managed to buy this original rack with a very low price. Is there any reason (besides the looks) why I should buy the two mouldings with the roof rack holes? I checked the original mouldings and there is nothing under there when removed. Just wondering if there is a practical reason if I only use the roof rack for 1-2 weeks.
