The Thule Universal Flat Top is the perfect ski roof rack for you car, truck, or SUV. This ski roof rack is the classic flat top style that is super easy to load and unload your skis and will fit alpine, cross country, race, powder skis, and even snowboards. The Thule Flat Top will not only lock your skis down in the rack, but can also be locked to your vehicle's factory crossbars. This makes the Thule Flat Top one of the most safe, secure, universal, and easy-to-use ski roof racks available. Thule is known for their quality and this ski roof rack is no exception.
As mentioned above, this Thule ski rack is the simple but effective flat top design. Effectively, the Flat Top rack is a big hinged "clamp" that you place your skis in to and then secure. There are no intricate fasteners or specialized clips like some other ski racks. Securing your skis is as easy as opening it up, dropping your skis in, then clamping it down. Your skis can be placed with the bindings facing up or bindings facing down permitting you have adequate clearance below the rack to fit bindings. In most cases you should have plenty of clearance, so we recommend putting pairs of skis together base-to-base to best utilize space.
The Flat Top has some great features like oversized, soft rubber padding that lines both sides of the rack arms. These padded arms are great for tightly gripping your skis but without scratching or denting your base and topcoat. Another great feature is the oversized release push button. The push button is what pops open the rack and has been designed to be used with ski gloves on! This is awesome considering most of the time you are going to be loading and unloading this rack out in the cold and snow (hopefully snow).
The Thule Flat Top includes four of Thule's One-Key locks. These locks allow you to lock your rack to your car and your skis to the rack. No fussing with cables necessary!
Like most of Thule's racks, this Flat Top can be completely installed without tools! Additionally, the Flat Top is designed to fit a wide variety of roof rack crossbars including round, square, oval, and most aero styles. It will fit any Thule or Yakima crossbars, and will fit most other factory roof racks. Thule takes pride in manufacturing products that fit universally across most vehicles.
We carry this rack in two different sizes: one that will carry 4 pairs of skis and one that will carry 6 pairs. These racks are identical other than the one that holds the 6 pairs of skis is longer. Please note that with fat powder skis you might not be able to get the full amount of skis specified. If you're rocking 120mm underfoot don't expect to get 6 pairs of those skis in this rack. Other than number of skis, this rack has no problem with powder skis or rockered skis though.
