Value is the name of the game here, but the US made Thule 613 Pulse Alpine cargo box
still maintains premium features found on top-of-the-line roof box models. With 11 cubic feet of carrying space and a low-profile design and long length, the Pulse Alpine is ideal for carrying skis, but because of its narrow width that takes up minimal crossbar space, it is also a great option for those who wish to attach other gear carriers, such as bike racks or kayak racks, to the crossbars while also using the box. The 613 Pulse cargo carrier comes equipped with the tool-free Easy-Grip Mounting system, which attaches to virtually any style crossbars in under five minutes, and the SecureLock locking system which ensures that all gear is locked and box is properly closed before driving off. Constructed of rugged ABS material for maximum durability and years of use, the Pulse Alpine cargo carrier offers essential top-of-the-line features at an economical price.
