This feature also reduces the amount of drag on your vehicle, which means improved fuel economy.

Thule also incorporates its sustainability values in how it designs its roof racks. Their racks utilize recycled materials and other sustainably sourced materials. They include corrosive-resistant materials, which is ideal given Alberta’s unpredictable climate and weather conditions.

What Thule Roof Rack Will Fit My Car?
