When loading or unloading a roof rack, it is necessary that users get as close as possible to the load. The Thule SlideBar solves this issue: the load bars can be slid out from either side of the car. A combination of lever and grip panels – with an innovative unlock and pull-out mechanism – ensures simple and ergonomic handling, which is guaranteed for instance through an integrated, automatic snap-lock. The design of the roof rack is characterised by timeless Scandinavian straightforwardness. All elements are manufactured from high-grade and rustproof materials.
