Thule rack systems consist of a set of load bars — which supports your accessories and carriers — held by a set of foot packs attached to your vehicle by a fit kit. All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.

The 45050 Crossroad system includes four feet, two 50" load bars (with endcaps), and 4 locks mounts. The load bars attach directly to your car's factory roof rails, and no fit kit is necessary. Rubber coated steel straps ensure custom fit and secure attachment. And the system includes foot locks for added security.

Wind noise

Written By Mike M, Illinois on Sunday, September 25, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall the design and function of this system looks good until you actually drive your car. It is then you realize that the square design of the cross bars make an annoying sound starting at about 30mph. For the price I think Thule could make these bars slightly tapered to eliminate the noise and reviews like mine. One more thing the box it came in looked like it had been through a war. The cross bars were dusty, scratched and worn looking but all parts were there and everything worked properly.
