Straps that lock down aero bar are inferior and rot quickly
Straps that lock down aero bar are inferior and rot quickly with sun exposure- I bought new in San Diego from an authorized dealer that could sell harder, and after having on my SUV for a year the sides have rotted and one almost flew off on the freeway. I have taken them off and have contacted Thule several times for replacement with no response. If they make this right and replace these $5 rupper straps that hold bar to roof rack on my X5 I will let you know! Bar works great when on, just straps did not last. You have to configure so you dont have noise, and will still have more than no bars.
