The second item to make our list is this thule roof rack. Capable of carrying up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards, the carrier can accommodate alpine and Nordic skis, bagged skis, and even water skis.
It’s suitable for all types of factory-installed and aftermarket roof racks, and features locking hoods with large push buttons to facilitate easy access to your snowboards and skis. The racks are tough too, made from lightweight but sturdy aluminum with a clear anodized coating. Customers say that installation can be done in as little as 20 minutes, and report that the rack is durable and simple to use. Finally, Thule offer a limited lifetime warranty, so you know they have a lot of faith in their US-made product.
