The Thule Canyon combines robust, tubular steel construction with a wedge-shaped, low-profile design. it’s designed to work with Thule’s proprietary rack systems and also most manufacturer factory systems. Available accessories include a 500 mm extender and it costs about R5 000.
Due to join the basket line-up in June is the Trail. With urban SUVs and soft-roaders in mind, it has a more sophisticated look than the Canyon, featuring a mix of aluminium and contrasting, high-density plastic. According to Thule, integrated T-tracks (slotted mounting rails that accept a bolt with a T-shaped head ) make fitment of other sports utility solutions – such as a bike or kayak carrier – possible. There are two sizes, priced at R8 499 and R10 499.
