The Thule Force cargo box has a diamond-textured AeroSkin surface which gives it durability. The aerodynamic shape reduces drag.

Dual-side opening lets you load and unload from left or right.

The tool-free Quick-Grip mounting system lets you attach the box in no time. The oversized SecureLock is easy to grab onto.

The Force fits the Thule Xsporter, Thule AeroBlade, Thule AeroBlade Edge, Thule square bars, round bars and most factory racks.


Exclusive finish gives the box extra durability.

When you hit the road, whether for a road-trip or to go camping, you need packing space. And you need to keep your stuff secure.

It’s no big deal if you’re single. You’ll manage fine with the space in your car or truck. Just chuck your stuff on the backseat and go. But the moment you become a one-plus, you need more room.

With a good cargo box you’ll get far before you start worrying whether you’ll be an involuntary donor of all your beloved belongings.

An aerodynamic rooftop cargo box is the perfect way to save in-vehicle space and keeps your belongings a few inches further from unwelcome fingers.

And with the SportRack Vista XL or Thule Force Cargo Box you can hardly go wrong.
