Thule SnowPack Extender wins ISPO Award 2017

We are very happy to announce that Thule SnowPack Extender, our brand-new slide-out rack for skis and snowboards, has won the prestigious ISPO Award 2017 in the category Ski Accessories. The ISPO Award honors the most exceptional sporting goods and is one of the most coveted prizes in the outdoor industry.

Every year ISPO, the world’s largest trade show for the winter sport business, honors extraordinary sports products with the ISPO Award. The ISPO Award has established itself as seal of quality for the sporting goods industry. All entries are evaluated by an independent, international jury who select the best products to be honored with an ISPO Award.

Thule SnowPack Extender ski and snowboard rack makes loading and unloading your gear quick, easy, and convenient. It simply slides out towards you so that you don’t need to lean across the car roof to load your skis or snowboards. Especially useful for SUVs and other tall vehicles, but truly practical for any car.

Thule SnowPack Extender has a contemporary, aerodynamic design, and carries skis and snowboards of all kinds safely and in style. Thanks to its oversized push buttons, it is easy to open and close in all conditions, even when you’re wearing gloves. Ultra-soft rubber arms protect your skis and snowboards, and ensure that no surfaces are scratched, and the rack is fully lockable to prevent theft. Thule SnowPack Extender has been thoroughly tested, both in the Thule Test Center and in real-world conditions, to meet stringent international safety standards.
