Thule Launch 2008 Leisure Catalogue

Thule, the worlds largest manufacturer of car roof systems, accessories and roof boxes has launched its 2008 catalogue.  The 63-page full colour brochure fully explains the vital statistics of each product, whilst the glossy photos, shot in locations across Europe, demonstrate the products in a range of different situations, from family outings to sporting activities.

The new catalogue contains all Thule product specifications with details of 28 brand-new products, including the new Ranger 500.  A brilliantly convenient fold-away soft roof box, the streamline Ranger 500 carries up to 50kg and includes ski carriers.  The Easy-Snap quick mounting system allows for quick fitting of the Ranger 500 – with no tools required.

Peter Barker, UK General Manager at Thule said: “The Thule product range is expanding and improving every year and this year is no exception. The 2008 catalogue presents extra pages explaining the vigorous road and endurance tests and ‘City Crash’ safety processes all Thule products are benchmarked to. This years catalogue details products in a very easy to use format, showing Thule’s full range, with explanations that make sense and photos that show the products in action.”

Other exciting new products include the new Hull-a-Port 837 kayak carrier which can be easily folded down when not in use, as well as the improved Load and Go series of storage boxes and bags.  Several new bike carriers have also been added to the already impressive cycle carrier range.

The catalogue can be downloaded online at or is available from most Halfords and Thule dealer stores. To find the nearest store, customers can use the dealer locator on the UK website.
