Accessories for Thule Motion XT XL


The best ski carrier solution


This was the perfect solution to mount on my 4Runner OEM rack. I had the Yakima Evo before and it was a pain to install and fit for specific skis and boards. This box is better than I expected. It goes on and off in a couple minutes, clamps easy, and has plenty of room for many skis and board. I highly recommend this product.

Fits my outback


Wanted a narrow/long/tall box to replace my old Cascadia 1100, but the closest to that had the crinkle finish and I wanted smooth (sticker canvas!). I love the opening/locking mechanism compared to the other, older style. Very slick and confidence inspiring. Since the XL was essentially the same width as the L, I went for it and am happy I can have it on my '08 Subaru without it hitting the lift gate (pushed as far forward as it will go). A very solid box. Expensive, but I sold my old box to a friend after 11+ years of use, so I'm willing to pay for quality.

Best rooftop carbo box around


The latch closure system is extremely good on this one. It clicks securely and easily with no fiddling. The box is rigid and has very little flex. Super quiet, I'll drive with my sunroof open and don't even notice that it's there (mounted in AeroBlades).
