Thule 91726 Pull Top Sliding Ski and Snowboard Rack

30 11 2009

The Thule 91726 Pull Top Ski and Snowboard rack is the only ski carrier that allows you to load and unload your ski equipment off the side of your vehicle.  Nobody likes to have to lean against their dirty car to get that last pair of skis or snowboards, dirtying up that nice jacket.  With this carrier you don’t have to,  pop open the rack, flip the lever and slide the ski carrier out, load up the skis or snowboards, slide it back and you’re ready to go.  It is also fantastic for those larger SUV’s where the height of the vehicle makes it a challenge to get onto the roof.  It doesn’t matter if you are 5 foot or 6 foot, this ski carrier will make your mountain experience all that much better.  The Thule 91726 Pull Top Ski and Snowboard rack comes with universal mounting hardware, it will attach directly to almost any factory crossbar or yakima or thule bars right out of the box.  It has capacity to carry up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards, or a combination of both.  Check out the video below and see just how easy the Pull Top really is.

2009 Audi A4 Avant with Thule Rapid Aero Roof Rack

28 10 2009

Audi A4 Avant 2009 w TK14s RB43s 003The 2009 Audi A4 Avant is one of the most popular new cars in Colorado.  Rack Attack is proud to have one of the first fits for it.  Both Thule and Yakima systems are available for this vehicle and both companies offer a liftime warranty on their products.   We are excited about these systems for this vehicle.  This photo shows a Thule Rapid Aero bar set up with permanently installed base (Thule TK14 Tracker Kit 14 ) behind the roof rail with quick release towers (Thule 430R Rapid Tracker Foot Pack ).  The system is one of the easiest to put on and remove from the vehicle due to the Tracker II towers’ push-botton operated quick realease mechanism.  By mounting just to the inside of the factory installed roof rails, we have made the overall appearance of the rack very sleek and integrated into the look of the vehicle.  One of the managers at Prestige Audi in Lakewood, CO has this exact sytem on his very own A4 Avant.

Ski and Snowboard Racks – What to buy?

In the red corner we have the cargo box.

In the blue corner we have the traditional open ski carrier.

Ding     ding    ding…


The real story here is all about function.  The open ski carrier is just that, an open ski carrier.  That’s all it will ever do.  Sure they can carry skis and snowboards equally well, but they lack the protection and versatility of a cargo box.   The cargo box has a much deeper skill set than an open carrier.  It offers superior protection for everything you carry in it.  You’ll never have to worry about road-salt and grime contaminating your skis/boards anymore.  Cargo boxes are typically more secure than an open carrier as well.  If you have expensive gear, no one will ever know.  Out of sight = out of a thief’s mind.   So it’s established that a cargo box protects your gear in several ways an open carrier can’t.  They are also more versatile.  A cargo box will carry skis, poles, snowboards,  wet jackets, gloves, backpacks, luggage, fishing gear, camp chairs, strollers, bicycle wheels, photography equipment, the kitchen sink, your mother in law…  the list goes on.  The point is that they can carry just about anything that fits within their dimensions – all the year around.  Not bad.  The next time you’re contemplating buying a ski rack, remember you have other options.  The verdict…

And the winner is…  The cargo box.  It’s definitely  more expensive, but it justifies it’s cost with versatility and protection for your skis, boards and everything else.  Did I mention they’re usually less noisy than a conventional open ski rack.
