If you have need of a sport rack for your vehicle, there are very few names that like come to mind. And the first is probably Thule®.

From its humble beginnings at windsurf competitions, tradeshows, and door-to-door sales to his local NY retailers, the initial success of Ake Skeppner's company has grown beyond anyone's wildest dreams!

Evolving in the mid-eighties from the windsurfing and ski industries into the growing bicycling industry, and by selling direct to retailers through a network of independent sales representatives, Thule truly found its niche.  Since this time, the company has grown rapidly through innovation, a commitment to quality, and the continuance of a strong entrepreneurial spirit.

Whether you're looking to cart your canoe to camp, your bike to the mountains, or your luggage across country, Thule has the rack for you.
