Roof racks

Roof racks are a versatile and practical accessory for vehicle owners who require extra space when transporting gear, be it for recreational activities such as cycling,kayaking, or skiing, or for carrying work equipment and other bulky items. They are designed to expand the cargo capacity of a car by providing a platform or set of bars mounted on the roof. By doing so, roof racks offer the perfect solution for drivers who need to maximize their vehicle’s utility without compromising interior space, ensuring a more comfortable and clutter-free travel experience.

When selecting a roof rack, some important properties to consider include the weight capacity, compatibility with your specific vehicle model, the type of gear to be carried, and the ease of installation. For instance, the weight capacity should be sufficient to safely support the items you plan to transport. Roof racks come designed for specific vehicle roof types, like those with gutters, raised rails, or a completely bare roof, so it is critical to choose one that fits your vehicle. Additionally, the material of the roof rack affects both its durability and weight; aluminum racks, for example, are lightweight yet strong. Users should also keep in mind the aerodynamic profile of the rack to reduce wind resistance and noise during transit.

Thule, with its top-selling WingBar Evo 127, sets the standard with its aerodynamic design and ease of installation, making it a preferred choice for many adventurers.
