This Subaru Impreza cartop rack system for 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards is a great way to get all your friends and all your gear to the mountain for the weekend.
As these install pictures show, D.D. from Pittsburg, California knows that night skiing and riding are just as much fun as during the day. And now getting to the slopes is quicker and more convenient than ever, thanks to D.D.’s new Thule Pull Top snowboard/ski rack and Whispbar Through Bar vehicle cross bars for a 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX. D.D. installed a Whispbar S16 Through Bar car rack with K323 Fitting Kit onto their 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STI four-door, then added a Thule 92726 Universal Pull Top ski-snowboard rack onto the Whispbar rack. The top-of-the-line Whispbar base system is the perfect platform for any roof rack accessory, from bikes to boats to luggage boxes and more (like skis and boards, of course). It’s simple to install, boasts a whisper-quiet ride with the innovative elliptical cross bar design, and locks and keys are even included to lock the rack onto the Subaru rooftop. The Thule 92726 holds up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards, and slides out along the side of the car for handy loading and unloading–no more leaning up against the car and covering the front of your jacket in road slush, and no more standing on tiptoes to try to secure your gear on tall vehicles. It’s easy to take on or off, with patented Speed-Link hardware that fits on factory, round, square, or elliptical cross bars, and like the base rack, it also comes with locks and keys to lock gear in place and lock the rack onto the cross bars.

This side-loading ski and snowboard system for a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicle rack is the perfect way to get skis and boards on and off your car roof.
Love skiing, but hate getting your jacket covered in road slush every time you lean up against your car to get your skis on and off the roof? You’re not alone–that’s why this customer install featuring a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee with telescoping snowboard/ski holder for factory cross bars is so brilliant. This setup uses the Thule 92726 Universal Pull Top ski and snowboard rack attached directly onto this Jeep Grand Cherokee’s MOPAR car rack cross bars. This ski-snowboard carrier slides out to allow loading on the side of the vehicle, rather than directly over top. It’s incredibly easy to operate, even with gloves or mittens still on, and with the included Speed-Link mounting hardware, installation takes just seconds, whether it’s going on factory cross bars or round/square bars from brands like Thule, Inno, or Yakima. The Universal Pull Top fits four snowboards or six sets of skis, and even includes locks and keys to lock them into the rack and lock the rack onto the car roof. Now you can hit the slopes without getting dirty in the parking lot.

Here is a nice follow-up instructional video to watch after viewing the Thule 92724 Flat Top / Thule 92725 Flat Top video. This movie features the Thule 92726 Universal Pull Top ski rack-snowboard rack. It is very similar to the Thule 92725, as it also includes the cool new SpeedLink Universal Mounting Clamps, holds up to 6 pr skis or 4 snowboards (and you can carry skis and snowboards at the same time), and includes locks to simultaneously lock the carrier to the car and equipment inside the carrier. Where the 92726 Universal Pull Top ski rack differs is the innovative telescoping cradle arms that will slide out over the side of the car. This makes it super easy to load and unload the snow boards and skiis. Then the arms retract back into the stored position on the rooftop. The video provides a great demonstration of how this works. Fits factory racks, Thule AeroBlade, square and round crossbars, Whispbar, Yakima, Inno etc. After watching both videos you will have a good foundation for making a decision on what ski rack is best for your needs.

New for the 2011-2012 ski and snowboard winter season is a new line up of Thule Racks skis carriers and snowboards carriers. After serving many seasons as the most popular ski racks and snowboard racks used by consumers in North America, continuing the leading position without having to make any changes or upgrades to the products (known as the Thule 91726 Pull Top, 91725 Flat Top and 91724 Flat Top), the designers and engineers at Thule finally decided they had a feature so remarkably improved they had no choice but to update and replace the current series. Now available are the Thule 92726 Universal Pull Top, Thule 92725 Universal Flat Top and the Thule 92724 Universal Flat Top. Each remains similar to their older relations, with one major exception – the universal clamping assembly for installing the carrier to roof rack cross bars. The 92726, 92725 and 92724 all now include the awesome new SpeedLink Clamp Mount mechanism that is designed with a steel band reinforced rubber strap on each Foot that simply wraps around the crossbar and hooks into place via the T-fastener. Then just turn the tightening knob to crank and tension the rubber strap onto the crossbar for a perfectly custom fit. Gone are the days of having to use tools, bolts and more. The Speed Link Mounting Clamps fit any factory racks, aerofoil style cross bars such as the Thule AeroBlade load bars and Whispbar Racks cross bars, as well as square Thule and Inno bars, Yakima round bars and others. Locks are also include for full system ski rack security. In the summer months they all work as great fishing rod racks, wakeboard carriers and water ski racks.

Picture of the all-new Thule Racks 92726 Universal Pull Top snowboards carrier-skis carrier that replaces the former Thule 91726 Universal Pull Top model. Features the SpeedLink clamps for quick attachment to factory racks and all car rack cross bars from Thule (including AeroBlade and Rapid Aero bars), Whispbar, Yakima, Inno etc.
Along with the new Thule 92724 and 92725 Universal Flat Top ski racks that replace the former 91724 and 91725 models, Thule Racks has just released the enhanced and updated Thule 92726 Universal Pull Top ski rack-snowboard rack that replaces the previous 91726 model. Headlining the car roof top mount ski racks-snowboard racks category, the Thule 92726 Universal Pull Top also features the same sliding action arms for easy equipment loading and unloading that made the original 91726 so popular with owners of automobiles with tall, hard to reach roof tops such as SUV, CUV, station wagons, pickup truck cabs, vans, minivans etc. Simply push the over-size button on each clamping arm to open up the clamping arms, then slide out the loading platforms so they extend out over the side of the car. No other carrier offers such easy access for loading and unloading skiis and snow boards. When done, simply close the arms and slide them back into the stored position on the car roof top. Unique to the all-new Thule 92726 Universal Pull Top snowboards-skis carrier is the awesome SpeedLink Clamp Mount System invented by the design engineers at Thule Racks. Instead of hassling with tools and bolts to install the ski rack, the Speed Link Clamps use steel reinforced rubber straps that wrap around the crossbar. Then it’s a simple matter of turning the tension knobs on each of the four clamp assemblies to perfectly tighten to the crossbars. No other system offers such secure, custom and snug fitment to the complete range of roof rack cross bar shapes and styles. Fits factory racks, all Thule load bars (including AeroBlade, Rapid Aero, Xsporter etc.), Inno square bars, Yakima round bars, Whispbar aero crossbars and more. The Thule 92726 PullTop also includes a complete set of locks to secure the rack to the vehicle and the skis and snow boards to the carrier. Accommodates up to four snowboards or six prs. skis and you can combine carrying snowboards and skis at the same time.
