Roof rack weight capacity?

Anyone know? It doesn't seem to be in the manual and Google comes up with nothing.

Well, I found an Australian forum that reported 60kg, 75kg, and 100kg, but obviously at least 2 of them are wrong.
I do find that the CX9 is 100 pounds. Is that correct?

I want to transport two 11' 75 pound wood planks and have a choice of a CX9 or CX3. One at a time will make for a long day.

How can this be such a tough question?! I asked Mazda on Saturday and got a reply that they didn't know but would look into it. How can they not know?

According to the CX-3 UK brochure dated June 2015, the maximum roof load is 50kg. Hope this helps

From Mazda...
I was able to research your question for you and was advised if you have purchased the Mazda Genuine Accessories Roof Rails for the 2016 Mazda CX-3, the maximum load is 165 lbs evenly distributed. For the 2014 CX-9, Mazda Genuine Roof Rails specify maximum load 100 lbs evenly distributed.
