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 LB78 78" 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.

Your specific length will depend on the style of your vehicle and type of Thule multipurpose rack system.
