Theres no such thing as too much testingWere very into our testing, which is why our products are class-leaders in safety and durability. At our test centre, we put all of our designs through the harshest conditions possible, from the cold of Scandinavia to the baking heat of the desert. We have a special salt chamber to test for rust protection, a draw bench that tests our pressure and load and a sleeping policeman to test extreme forces on the hitch hook. We even test our products for chemical resistance. And we have wind tunnel. And just when you think its all over, we have a machine that vigorously shakes our products, simulating a whole lifetimes use in a few days. So when we put our name to something, you can be sure its the most durable, reliable product you can buy.

A history of innovations

2011 SlideBar

Engineers of eurekaIf necessity is the Mother of invention, we are the Father. Our engineers have been innovating class-leading products in our Swedish factory since 1942, going from one innovation to the next. In 1973, we developed Europes first lockable ski-rack the Luxus. Then after a string of other innovations, we raised the bar in Cargocarrying systems with the Rapid System. Made to fit any car with no need for tools, the Rapid System swiftly became the industry standard. Then in 2004 we made kayaks as at home on cars as they are on water, with the Hull-A-Port rail. For the first time, Kayaks could be loaded on the side on top of the car, which meant more space and the possibility to take 3 Kayaks with a smaller rack. Which is all well and good, but we know that were only as good as our last innovation, so for 2011 were proud to introduce the SlideBar. Uniquely designed to slide out from your car, which means it wont get damaged, you wont get dirty and we can crack on with the next big eureka moment.

Our innovative new Thule SlideBar makes loading heavy items simple. And because it slides out beside the car body, it protects your car from damage, and you from getting dirty.

Racks

A journey of a thousand miles starts with a rackIf you want to build something solid, you have to make sure your foundations are strong. And the strongest possible foundation for your roof-top storage is a Thule bar. Since decades, weve been innovating, testing and refining the most resilient load carriers available, so whatever your adventure, in whatever car, youll have the best possible start.

And with the time-saving T-track on every aerobar, you can switch from one adventure to the next by simply sliding a new load on and taking off.
