March 20, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
Thule Racks, the world-wide leader in vehicle gear and equipment transport solutions, and ORS Racks Direct, a nationwide retail sales leader of automobile car and truck rack systems, recently announced the launch of the Thule Force cargo roof box series, further solidifying a strong partnership in Thule product sales and service. These mid-level, highly engineered and designed cargo containers with friendly pricing include the 626 Force XXL box, 625 Force XL box, 624 Force L box and 623 Force Alpine box.

Along with advanced, innovative and proprietary features that they all share in common, each Thule Force cartop roof rack cross bars mounting cargo box delivers uniquely designed elements to meet consumers' differing needs in the car rooftop cargo carrier category. The all-new and amazing Quick-Grip universal mounting clamps included with all Force boxes are so easy to operate it takes no more than 5 minutes to install the roof box to any aftermarket crossbars from Thule, Whispbar, Yakima, Inno etc., as well as fitting virtually all vehicle factory roof rack cross bar styles and sizes.

"The mid-level category and price friendly Thule Rack Force series replaces the previous generation Ascent cargo roof boxes. The new Force boxes deliver a host of new features and plenty of upgrades that the older Ascent car top cargo containers lacked. With four models to choose from, it would be difficult to predict the model that will earn most popular status with customers over time. I enjoy making predictions however, so I'm placing my money on the Thule 625 Force XL box ( for a couple of reasons, " states Catherine Case, ORS Racks Direct Consumer Relations and Sales Coordinator, "It serves up a huge 17 cu/ft storage capacity, allowing the 625 Force XL to easily accommodate all kinds of gear and equipment, enough to fulfill any family's needs in freeing up tons of cargo space in the vehicle by transporting everything on top of the car. Also, the 625 Force XL roof rack cross bars mounting cargo-luggage container is ideally sized with dimensions of 84"(L) x 34.5"(W) x 17"(H), the perfect fit for a very wide range of automobile sizes and designs, such as any station wagon, CUV and SUV models, minivan, Jeeps, pickup truck cab rooftops, even sedan models. Other than that, the Thule 625 Force XL shares the same great features as all other Force car rooftop cargo containers.

The largest model in the Force series, sporting dimensions of 92.5"(L) x 36"(W) x 18"(H) and a simply massive 21 cu/ft cargo capacity, is the Thule 626 Force XXL roof top cargo-luggage gear container ( As with all other Thule Rack Force cargo boxes, it features very high quality construction, superb design styling, easy operating box lid, mounting hardware clamps. All this at friendly pricing in the mid-range level of cargo roof boxes. The 626 Force XXL is available in a matte black finish with diamond-textured AeroSkin box lid (along with enhancing the cargo box's looks, the diamond-textured AeroSkin box lid noticeably improves fuel savings, as well as greatly minimizing wind drag and noise.) With such a huge amount of cargo storage space, it easy accommodates plenty of luggage, snowboards-skis (holds up to 10-12 pair skis / 6-8 snowboards), sports gear, camping equipment, vacation supplies and more. Thule 626 Force XXL includes locks and keys for total system security. Dual-side opening box lid is also included for easy opening and closing box from either side of the car.

The shortest length, most compact Force series model is the Thule 624 Force L roof top cargo-luggage gear container ( Features dimensions of 67"(L) x 35"(W) x 16"(H), making it the ideal option for any consumers not planning to transport skis, long snowboards (holds up to 3-4 snowboards, however the boards will not fit if they are over 150cm long) and any other extra long items inside the 624 Force L car top roof rack mounting cargo-luggage container. Don't be fooled by the short length however, this box delivers a generous 13 cu/ft storage capacity - plenty of space for any cargo-luggage gear, vacation supplies, baby jogger-stroller, sports gear, golf club bags, shopping bags and more. Ideally sized to fit 2-door car models and other vehicles with very short roof lines. However, the compact length is also perfectly sized and a great match to fit all sedans, wagons, minivans, SUV and CUV models, pickup truck cab rooftops etc. Also available in a matte black finish with diamond-textured AeroSkin box lid. Other features include dual-side opening box lid, as well as Thule Racks locks and keys for complete theft prevention of all contents within the 624 Force L and the box itself from the vehicle.

The last of the four Thule Force boxes is Thule 623 Alpine roof box ( and unique in the category for a few reasons. The 88.5"(L) x 25.5"(W) x 12.5"(H) dimensions makes it easily the narrowest of all Force cargo carriers. The result is a roof box that uses up less roof rack cross bars space, allowing for more room to mount other gear carriers alongside the 623 Thule Force Alpine box. It is also by far the lowest-profile and most aerodynamic model in the Force series, delivering superior fuel economy and best clearance when entering a garage and other possible low hanging overheads. A very popular choice for transporting skis and snowboards (easily handles up to 5-6 pair skis / 2-3 snowboards). The 12 cu./ft storage capacity also delivers plenty of room for loading all kinds of cargo gear and luggage, camping equipment, vacation supplies, sports gear and more. The Thule 623 Force Alpine box is also available in a matte black finish with diamond-textured AeroSkin box lid, as well as all the other universal Force series cargo container features such as dual-side opening box lid and locks and keys for total theft prevention of all items inside the 623 Force Alpine and the cargo carrier itself from the automobile.
