Load Bars: Helps You Steady the Load, Secure the Trip

When planning a road trip or transporting cargo, it's essential to ensure that it is securely fastened to your vehicle. One of the best ways to do this is by using load bars.

Load bars, also known as crossbars, are an essential piece of equipment that attaches to the roof of your vehicle and provides a base to mount cargo carriers or bags. They are essential for safely transporting bicycles, kayaks, skis, and other gear and hauling large items such as furniture or appliances.


Navigating the Different Types of Load Bars

When it comes to load bars, there are a variety of types available, each with its unique features. Here are some of the following:


Thule WingBar Edge, WingBar Evo, and ProBar Evo

Thule offers the WingBar with different models to cater to your specific requirements. The WingBar Evo and WingBar Edge both offer aerodynamic features for a quiet ride. They’re exceptionally strong and easy to install, too. But if you're in need of a heavy-duty load bar, the Thule ProBar Evo is a great option with its extra high load capacity and tri-slot for accessories. While the Thule ProBar Evo itself doesn't increase the load capacity, the extra channel on it provides more functionality and additional accessories that are designed for the rear channel. Lastly, these Thule load bars also boast an additional feature which is a sliding functionality for effortless loading.


Rhino-Rack Vortex Bars, Vortex StealthBar, and Heavy Duty Bars

Rhino-Rack offers a range of load bars to suit your vehicle and cargo transportation needs. The Vortex bars are available in black or silver, cut to 7 different predefined lengths and include the VGS rubber strip to reduce wind drag and noise while protecting your roof racks and load. 

The Vortex StealthBar also offers the same features as Vortex bars but they are especially designed for vehicles with raised roof rails. On the other hand, the Heavy Duty bars can be cut to 8 different lengths and also with the rubber strip and end caps for added security.

It's important to note that Vortex and Stealth bars have unique accessories that differ from those used by Heavy Duty bars. This distinction is due to the varying size and shape of the channels on the top of each bar type. These differences in accessories reflect the intended purpose and design of each bar.


Yakima LockNLoad Crossbars and AeroBars

Lastly, the LockNLoad crossbars by Yakima boast a rugged modern design. They are built to handle even extreme conditions. Whether it's tarmac or corrugated roads, the LockNLoad crossbars are ready to carry you on any road trip.

On the other hand, the AeroBar roof rack system provides versatility and customization to meet your individual requirements. Whether you are looking for a sleek, streamlined appearance with the FlushBar option or increased carrying capacity with the ThruBar option, or have a vehicle with raised side rails and need the RailBar option, the AeroBar system offers a range of choices to fulfill your specific needs and preferences.


The Importance of Proper Fit: How to Measure for the Perfect Load Bar

Proper installation and maintenance of your load bars are crucial for ensuring their longevity and the safety of your cargo. Let’s take a look at the steps involved in installing load bars and tips for maintaining them to keep them in top condition.


Vehicle Compatibility

The first step in finding suitable load bars is ensuring they are compatible with your vehicle. This means checking your vehicle's make, model, year, and distance between the mounting points on the roof. Choosing load bars designed for your vehicle to ensure a proper fit is essential.


Bar Style

When it comes to roof rack systems, it's essential to choose the right bar for the job. Rhino-Rack Heavy Duty bars are built to handle the tough demands of work gear, while Vortex bars are designed for carrying leisure equipment with ease. Make sure to select the bar that best suits your needs and get ready to hit the road with confidence.


Bar Length

The length of the load bars you choose will depend on the width of your vehicle's roof. The distance between the mounting points on your roof is essential to ensure that you select the correct length of load bars.


Loading Capacity

The loading capacity is another important factor to consider when choosing load bars. This refers to the maximum weight that the load bars can safely support. It's essential to select load bars with a loading capacity that exceeds the importance of the cargo you plan to transport.


Ensuring the Durability of Your Load Bars: Installation and Maintenance Tips

Properly loading your cargo onto load bars is essential for ensuring the safety of your cargo and the longevity of the load bars. We'll look at proper loading techniques, and tips for ensuring your cargo is securely fastened and evenly distributed.


Installation

Installing load bars typically involves attaching the bars to the roof of your vehicle using clamps or brackets. You'll need to carefully read and follow the manufacturer's instructions for installation and check for any specific instructions from your vehicle's manufacturer. Some load bars require drilling holes in the roof, while others can be attached using accessories, such as locks. It's also important to ensure the load bars are securely attached and aligned adequately before loading any cargo.


Maintenance

Proper maintenance is critical to ensuring the longevity of your load bars. This includes regular cleaning and inspection of the load bars and the vehicle's roof for signs of wear or damage. It's also important to ensure that the load bars are correctly tightened and that all hardware is in good condition. If you notice any damage or wear, it's best to replace the load bars as soon as possible to ensure the safety of your cargo.


Proper Loading

It's also important to properly load your cargo onto the load bars, ensuring that it is evenly distributed and securely fastened. This will help prevent damage to the load bars, as well as to the vehicle's roof and the cargo itself.
