At the Thule Test Center™ in Hillerstorp, Sweden, products go through extreme testing. Our cargo carriers are designed to carry your gear and fit your car as safely and securely as possible. Below are just a few examples of the many tests conducted.
We conduct multiple crash tests at different speeds and weights to see how the racks and cargo carrier protects its contents and the vehicle from damage.
Wear and tear simulations
Specialized tests that are used to evaluate the cargo carriers over time, to assess their durability and long-term performance.
To evaluate the performance of cargo carriers under conditions that might be encountered during use, we expose them to extreme heat, cold, damp, sunlight and chemicals.
