A Force Cargo Box may be the best roof top carrier value on the market because you get so much at such a great value. Each Force cargo box features a durable matte black Diamond-Textured AeroSkin surface, and the shape is aerodynamically designed, to cheat the wind and reduce drag and noise. This will improve fuel economy and make driving quieter and more pleasurable. Every Force box includes the Quick-Grip mounting system, which enables you to secure the box to the load bars in about 5 minutes. Loading and unloading the Force can be done from both sides of the vehicle, thanks to Force's dual-side opening feature. The 2 included straps can be used to tie your gear down in the box and prevent it from sliding around. Once all your gear is loaded, the 2 included One-Key lock cylinders can be used to lock the lid and lock the box to the carrier. The SecureLock feature ensures that all gear is locked and the box is properly closed prior to driving, because the key can only be removed when the box lid is closed and locked.
The Force series of cargo boxes is offered in 4 sizes, so there's a capacity and length for every need. The XXL is the largest box in the Force line, capable of carrying up to 21 cu. ft. of cargo. It fits 10-12 pairs of skis with a maximum length of 220cm, 6-8 snowboards or gear for up to 5 passengers. The next-to-largest Force is the XL, with the capacity to carry up to 17 cu. ft. of cargo, 6-8 pairs of skis with a maximum length of 198cm, 4-6 snowboards or gear for up to 4 passengers.
At only 65" in length, the Force L is the shortest length Force cargo box, making it ideal for smaller vehicles. The Force M can carry up to 13 cu. ft. of cargo, 3-4 snowboards with a maximum length of 150cm, or gear for up to 3 passengers. The Force Alpine's narrow width makes it the perfect carrier when you need space on your roof rack for other gear, yet it can still carry up to 12 cu. ft. of cargo. It fits 5-6 pair of skis with a maximum length of 192cm, 2-3 snowboards or gear for up to 2 passengers.
