What are roof racks for?

A roof rack is necessary when you want to carry something on your car roof. A Thule roof rack is safely and easily attached to your car – you can do it yourself in minutes.  

For each car brand and model, there is a Thule roof rack solution that fits.

Once the roof rack is mounted on your car, you can use it for a wide range of cargo depending on your needs: roof boxes, bike racks, racks for kayaks, surfboards and SUP boards. 

What roof racks fit my car?

Thule roof racks are super easy to mount on all types of vehicles and include every component you’ll need.

Most roof rack systems are composed of roof bars, feet and fit kits (some do not need fit kits). The bars are where you carry the load, the feet attach to a specific type of roof (see roof types below), and the fit kit ensures the rack fits on your specific car model.
