Many ski and snowboard carriers require you to have a roof rack with crossbars, but many vehicles come from the factory with side rails only. Now, Thule bring you a high capacity ski and snowboard carrier that mounts just to the side rails – no crossbars are needed, so you can be off to the slopes without having to buy crossbars or a roof rack system. The Snowcat can hold up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards.
The Snowcat can be mounted to almost any vehicle with side rails, because the telescoping steel bar can be adjusted exactly to the distance between the rails. Installation can be accomplished easily with the aide of the included instructions. Once installed, the carrier can be opened with the integrated push button. Rubber arms gently grip and hold skis or snowboards without damaging the finish. To prevent theft, skis or snowboards can be locked to the carrier and the carrier locked to the side rails with the 4 included One-Key locks.
The Snowcat Ski and Snowboard Rack comes with everything necessary for installation, including detailed instructions. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.215.95Brand: Thule Part Number: 5401 UPC: 091021540170

Wish I had gotten the longer unit. Now my crossbars are too close together to fit the canoe. Haven't used the unit yet. But it seems to ride on the car nicely. The lid feels somewhat flimsy. Guess we shall see!Was this review helpful for you? YesNo(4.5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITYHigh-Quality Car Rack| Posted by David B. | 2013 Subaru Forester (San Francisco, CA)
I put these on my 2014 Forester. They fit well, and the installation was easy. When you buy a pair, they are sold as a front and rear pair, but the difference is not distinguishable and nothing on the package or in the enclosed instructions made note of this. I haven't noticed any increased noise, and I often drive with the roof open, so I think the aeroblade is a smart design. As far as roof racks go, they look nice and look like they will last a long time.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
