Thule Introduces the new Thule Canyon roof basket

Press Release   •   Sep 16, 2014 09:00 BST

Thule knows a thing or two about hauling gear. We launched our first roof basket in the spring of 1968 and since then held the position as the world leading manufacturer when it comes to transportation. The Thule Canyon roof basket has a robust but light weight steel design that will carry gear of all shapes and sizes.

The Thule Canyon is a light weight cargo basket designed to transport basically anything you want. The basket comes in one size but with the additional extension accessory, the total length of the product can be extended by 51 cm. Also available as an accessory is a pair of crossbars that will let you carry additional equipment such as a bike or kayak carrier or just stabilize your equipment.
