NEW FIAT 500L with Thule roof rack by Fiat of Austin & Rack Outfitters @ Barton Creek Square Mall

17th Mar 2014

Rack Outfitters is proud to team up with Fiat of Austin to outfit this brand new Fiat 500L with a Thule AeroBlade roof rack, Premium Sonic Large (black) Cargo box and Criterium upright bike carrier. This 500L can be found on display at Barton Creek Square Mall between Dillard's and Macy's. 

Both the bike carrier and cargo box are mounted utilizing Thule's clever and very useful T-track channel installed in every AeroBlade load bar. When using one one of the special xadapt kits, the track allows full use of the entire bar for a flush, integrated and aerodynamic mounting method. Use of underplates or wingnuts are eliminated with this kit.

Below you will find information and photos of the base roof rack, the Thule Traverse SILVER AeroBlade roof rack.

This complete multi-purpose base roof rack is for the 2014, 2015 and 2016* FIAT 500L 5 Door  that has the "bare" or "normal" roof, includes models equipped with a sunroof.  System includes two load bars, four feet and the complete vehicle specific fit kit.  Locks are recommended and available separately in match sets.

The Thule Fit Kit 1723 is specifically engineered for this FIAT 500L, the kit includes protective rubber contoured pads which attach to the base of the Traverse Foot and rest directly on the roof.  Custom formed metal brackets coated with protective Pebax® thermoplastic elastomer click into the Traverse Foot and grip to the vehicle's door frame.

The Thule 480R Rapid Traverse Foot provides the strongest hold, safest fit and has 50% fewer parts than other racks for the easiest installation. Watch Install Video
