Regardless of the size you choose, any Sonic Box will look great on your roof. Each features the patented AeroNose design, with a shape that cuts through the air and reduces wind drag by up to 35%, for greater fuel efficiency and quieter travel. The Sonic Alpine also has aerodynamic dimples that further reduce drag by more than 10%. And the Sonic's patented rear angled base and expanded vehicle mounting points help ensure the cargo box won't interfere with trunk or hatch opening. Each size is available in your choice of metallic black or metallic silver.
The Sonic is super easy to install and can be mounted to Thule racks systems, round bars and most factory racks. The tool-free AcuTight mounting system lets you secure the box to the rack load bars in about 5 minutes. Each AcuTight knob will make an audible "click" when the box is securely attached to the roof rack. Along with being easy to install, the Sonic is also simple to load. The dual-side opening lid lets you load the box from either side of the vehicle. 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. And the ergonomic lock knob is so easy to grasp and turn; it can even be done with gloves on.
Each Sonic Cargo Box comes with everything required 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.
