M2 Sport

Black Powdercoat
1990-2005 Miata with hardtop, glass or plastic rear window soft top

The M2 Sport Bar uses the same main hoop mounting system as the original Hard Bar Sport The redesigned rear braces allow room for the 99-05 Mazda glass rear window.

The M2 Sport will also fit the 90-97 1st generation Miata and is compatible with most after market glass rear window convertible tops. Special diagonal verisons are available* for aftermarket glass rear windows that are larger than the original equipment on the 99-05. See FAQ for details.

It is nearly identical to the Hard Core Hardtop but has less standard features and uses 1.5" tubing instead of 1.75" tubing. One or two main hoop diagonal braces and / or harness tabs may be added.

This is the bar we recommend for a Miata that sees mostly street use but will work for the occasional autocross or track day.

The Sport and Hard Core Hardtop are slightly shorter and sit farther back than the Hard Core.  The Ace is slightly shorter still but sits the farthest back. 

What are harness tabs? 

The biggest question we get regarding this roll bar is how is it different than the Hard Bar Sport. The M2 Sport bar utilizes optional harness tabs instead of a harness bar.  This allows clearance for the soft top glass rear window.  We offer forged eye-bolts and harness clip-ins to utilize the harness tabs with a multi-point race harness.  At right you can see the harness tab in use.  They are located behind the seats and just below the rear deck.  

Harness Tabs being used

Certain seat configurations in Miata models '01+ may cause the seat to come into contact with the bar. While the headrest may touch the bar, this does not limit seat travel.
