When you're on a tight budget but need additional space to transport your gear, Thule has the solution for you with Pulse cargo boxes. These boxes come in a size to fit your needs, and deliver easy, safe, and secure transport of your gear to your destination. And unlike some bargain carriers, these cargo boxes have sleek aerodynamic styling, so they'll not only look good on your roof, the reduced drag and noise will help your fuel mileage and make your trips quieter and more pleasurable.

The Pulse series is offered in 3 sizes, so there's a capacity and length for every need. The XL is the largest box in the Pulse line, capable of carrying up to 16 cu. ft. of cargo. It fits 6-8 pairs of skis with a maximum length of 181cm, 4-6 snowboards, or gear for up to 4 passengers. The medium size carrier in the Force line is the Force L, with the capability to carry up to 14 cu. ft. of cargo, 3-4 snowboards with a maximum length of 155cm, or gear for up to 3 passengers. The shorter length of the Pulse L makes it perfect for smaller vehicles. The Alpine is the long and narrow box in the Pulse line, making it perfect for long/low profile gear, and for when you need space for additional gear on your roof rack. The Alpine can carry up to 11 cu. ft. of cargo, 5-6 pairs of skis with a maximum length of 210cm, 2-3 snowboards, or gear for up to 2 passengers.

No tools are required to install Pulse cargo boxes to Thule rack systems, round bars, and most factory racks. The Easy-Grip mounting hardware is easy to assemble and the cargo box can be installed to the load bars in minutes. Loading the box is easy via the passenger side opening lid. 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 included One-Key lock cylinder 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.

Pulse cargo boxes come 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.

Thule® designs and manufactures products for outdoor enthusiasts, athletes, and those that lead an active lifestyle. They specialize in developing and marketing cargo transportation solutions so these people can bring their gear with them wherever they go, whatever they drive. Thule was founded in Sweden in 1942, and built their first roof rack system in the 1960s. Today Thule leads the market with innovative products for transporting, bicycles, watercraft, snowsport equipment and other gear on the roof, with the trailer hitch, on the trunk or hatch, or in the pickup bed. Thule manufactures the strongest, most durable and longest lasting load carrying systems on the market, and backs their products with a lifetime warranty. Over 80% of Thule products sold in North America are made in USA, and Thule employs over 1,000 American workers.

Great but Needed the Bigger Box
Th storage box looks good and solid. The only thing I wish I would have done is purchase the bigger storage unit because I can only fit 2 suit cases and a small duffle bag and it barely wants to close, but other then that it’s great and they should all be able to open on both sides much more convenient

Thule Alpine Cargo Box
This is a great product. It arrived on time and in excellent condition. The delivery person was great. It was very easy to install. I did it by myself and it took approximately 10 minutes. I use it to put my skis and equipment in. This was the best price I found after days of researching.

The Thule pulse is a great. The instillation was super simple. The box is secure and doesn't rattle.

Great Product / Service
The product itself is perfect and easy to install and use. As well as the delivery process was more than satisfactory. They called to make sure someone was home and the time frame they gave was exactly when they came. They brought the large box right to the door and were very friendly. I would use this company again without a second thought I highly recommend anyone purchasing these type of items to anyone!

Thule Pulse Cargo Box
Purchased the cargo box for my Thule system through CARiD and would recommend to others. The cargo box had to be shipped freight but still arrived within two weeks. Install was very easy.

Great Brand, But You Pay For It
The product looks great and installed easily. I drove around with the box empty for a bit and didn't notice any noise or vibrations. It fit very nicely on my 2016 GMC Terrain.
