Thule’s New Rooftop Cargo Boxes Offer Sleek Storage For Winter Sports

Roof racks have been the saving grace of many outdoor endeavors, and with the popularity of exploratory lifestyles at an all-time high, it might not come as surprise to hear that the industry’s biggest players are reevaluating their contemporary offerings. As a household name within the automotive rack/storage world, we thought that Thule had an option for every adventurous outing; but now, they’ve introduced two new aerodynamic variants for the design-oriented consumer.

The company’s newly-released Vector M and Alpine Cargo Boxes create the perfect marriage between attractive implementation and functional use. As an additive pair that were devised to round out the company’s high-end offerings, both variants mount near the vehicle’s front and offer clearance at the rear to accommodate a handful of modern hatchback/SUV variants. Each box can be placed effortlessly, thanks to the addition of intuitive, tensioned feet that wrap around and lock into place along the crossbar’s recessed track, while a secure side lock system helps users to access a bi-directional lid from either side. If you’re a fan of winter sports, a 13-cubic foot internal storage space and 165-pound weight capacity will allow you to transport five snowboards (or six pairs of 200cm skis) with ease, complementing the Vector M and Alpine’s integrated lighting and felt-lined interior to keep your gear protected and secure. If you’re interested in finding out more about the two variants, head to Thule’s website, where you’ll find them listed for sale at $1,400+.
