Thule Hyper Cargo Box

Thule Hyper Cargo BoxMore Bentley than cargo box, the Thule Hyper is engineered for top-shelf style, convenience and security. On the outside, it boasts a metallic silver and high-gloss black two-tone finish that’s sure to turn heads on the highway. Plus, its specially sculpted Aeronose front design dramatically reduces drag and wind noise for better fuel economy and a whisper-quiet cockpit.

The Thule Hyper Rooftop Cargo Box is more than just skin deep. Inside, it’s equipped with a light for nighttime loading, dual-side opening for easy access and a heavy-duty lid that locks tight to stop pickpockets from walking off with your gear.

Once it’s on, the rear-angled base gives you plenty of clearance for opening the rear hatch. And, its spacious storage capacity means plenty of room for luggage, camping equipment and more.
