Our take on the Thule LB65 Square Load Bars

by Buck Pomerantz
Thule

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

Thule makes the square LB65 65" load bars out of strong steel, clad in corrosion-resistant black plastic. These bars are available in four lengths to accommodate the size of your vehicle and the rack accessories you choose: 50", 58", 65", and 78".

Note: Load bar end caps are not included in this package. End caps are included with foot packs, to match styling.

Features

Overview: The Thule Load Bars are designed to be the base for Thule multipurpose rack systems. These traditional square bars are made of galvanized steel with black, plastic coating and are corrosion resistant. Thule Load Bars are offered in four different lengths: 50", 58", 65", and 78". Your specific length will depend on the style of your vehicle and type of Thule multipurpose rack system.
