Thule 769 Rapid System Deemed Best Roof Bar by Auto Express

The international market leader, Auto Express declared the Thule 769 Rapid System the ‘best buy’ in its April edition, marking Thule’s roof bars as ‘a class act ’and ‘well worth the price premium’. 

The Thule 769 Rapid Systems emphatic victory over all others tested was due to its user-friendly design. The ease at which the bars can be assembled and fitted due to its clever design that
incorporates everything the roof bar owner needs within the mount.

Thule’s 869 Rapid System’s sleek design and clear instructions were commended in the product testing, but the 769 came out as the firm favourite in the market place for Auto Express testers.

Peter Barker, UK General Manager of Thule commented: “Roof bars are seen as a long
term investment, so people will be looking to buy the best for quality and safety. Thule have designed solutions for most makes and models, allowing users to assemble, remove and transfer their bars to other vehicles if needed, whilst ensuring style and ease of use are maintained across applications.”
