Up top, we're going to have our 53-inch SquareBar crossbars, and Thule's actually redesigned these to make them suit the foot pack a little bit better instead of having a foot pack where it comes over the crossbar like that.

We're going to have more usability of the top bar.Now down here we're going to have the Evo raised side rail feet.
