Questions from Subaru Forester owners about this Ski and Snowboard Racks

  • According to my research the 2014 Subaru Forester comes with either a bare roof or with factory-installed side rails that run front-to-back. The Rhino-Rack Locking Ski and Snowboard Carrier you referenced, part # 566U, will fit many styles of roof rack crossbars on a range of factory and aftermarket rack systems. A product review video for this carrier is included for your reference. I measured the mounting clamps on this item to determine the approximate maximum size of crossbar...

Questions from Subaru Forester owners about this Ski and Snowboard Racks

  • The Thule Pull Top Slide-Out Ski and Snowboard Carrier # TH92726 that you referenced uses installation clamps that are compatible with a wide range of vehicle roof crossbar shapes, including most factory-installed bars like the ones on your 2011 Forester. Thanks to this flexible mounting hardware you do not need to buy an aftermarket roof rack in order to use the Pull Top, which is illustrated in the linked video. If you're heading to the slopes you might consider tire chains...

  • Yes, you will need crossbars to use the Thule Pull Top Slide-Out Ski and Snowboard Carrier, part # TH92726, which your referenced. Part # TH92726 will fit with round, square, aero/elliptical and most factory crossbars. According to my research the 2005 Subaru Forester can come with a factory roof rack with crossbars, with flush mount rails that run front to back, or factory side raised rails that run front to back. If your roof has the factory roof rack with crossbars you will...

Questions from Subaru Forester owners about this Ski and Snowboard Racks

  • My contact at Thule confirmed that their Snowcat Ski Rack for Factory Roof Racks # TH5401 is not compatible with your vehicle side rails. Currently they do not offer any ski/snowboard carrier that can directly mount to the factory side rails on your 2014 Forester. In order to use the Thule Snowcat or other rooftop ski/snowboard carrier you will need to first install a roof rack, except....in the event that you already have a hitch receiver on your Forester and happen to own...

  • The SportRack # SR6453 Ski and Snowboard Carrier would be a fit as long as the side rails of your Forester aren't more than 3-1/4 inches in diameter. This carrier can attach to crossbars or side rails, as shown in the diagram from the instructions I've linked for you. While SportRack makes a high quality product, the clamps that mount the rack to the side rails are pretty rudimentary, you'll need an Allen wrench to install and remove them. An easier to use option would be to...

  • I do have a solution for you but I checked with Thule and the Snowcat # TH5401 is not a fit for the side rails on your 2013 Subaru Forester. In order to carry skis or snowboards you will need to add crossbars to the vehicle roof. You can use the Thule Crossroads foot pack # TH450, and the Thule load bars # THLB50. Then you could add a ski carrier such as the Flat Top, # TH92725. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you.

Whispbar Ski and Snowboard Racks Review - 2015 Subaru Forester

Today on our 2015 Subaru Forester, we're going to be doing a test fit on the Whispbar Locking Rooftop Ski and Snowboard Carrier. This has a six ski or a four board capacity. The part number on it is WB-300. We've got a Yakima RailGrab Roof-Rack system that we've already installed on the Forester. As you can see, we've got the rear half of our carrier installed as well. To begin our test fit here, we're going to place the Ski and Snowboard Carrier onto to the rooftop of our vehicle. We'll open the upper jaw.



Thule Flat Top Ski and Snowboard Racks Review - 2015 Subaru Forester

Today on our 2015 Subaru Forester, were going to be test fitting the Thule Flat Top Ski and Snowboard Carrier. Its going to have a 6 ski or 4 board capacity, part number TH92725. With the Thule rapid crossroad roof rack system on our vehicle and the rear part of our carrier already installed, were going to go and place this onto our front load bar. Now in doing this, you want to make sure that we give both halves of our carrier to line up with one another. Once we have that in the correct location, we can bring the rubber coated steel strap around to our load bar, fit in the back into the foot, and then we can use the wing knob here at the front to tighten that strap around to our load bar. Once we have this side nice and secure, we can go and go to the other side and repeat that same process. With it nice and tight on our roof rack, well go ahead and open up our jaws.



Thule Flat Top Ski and Snowboard Carrier Review - 2009 Subaru Forester

Today on our 2009 Subaru Forester will be test fitting the Thule flat top ski and snowboard carrier with a six gear floorboard capacity, part number TH-92725. With the Thule rapid podium roof racksystem on our vehicle, we'll begin our tested by placing half of our carrier onto our front load bar. We'll bring our rubber coatedstrap around our bar, fitting it back into the foot of the carrier and then using the small hand knob to secure it around our bar. We'll then move to the other side and repeat this process. We'll grab the other half of our carrier and place it onto the rear bar. We'll want to make sure that both halves of our carrier are lined up nicely with each other for better hauling of our gear.
