Atera vs Thule roof bars
I don’t think Atera is quite as well known in the UK as on the continent.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve got an Atera bike rack and it’s far better than the Thule it replaced. I think you are paying a premium for the Thule name.
However, I do have Thule bars and foot packs which are good and just work but I don’t have any experience of the Atera bars/kit.
I’m changing my car, so I need to get new roof bars for my bike racks. Looking at roofbox.co.uk the Thule aero racks for the new car (Octavia estate) are pushing 150 quid, but Atera bars are about 50 quid cheaper. Is there any great reason to choose Thule over Atera?Posted 4 years ago
mrchrispy – what age of Passat were they for? With that knowledge I should be able to check on roofbox.co.uk to see if they’re the same parts as are needed for the appropriate Octavia estate.
I’ve got some second hand Atera bars for my current car (old Octavia hatchback) but the clamps aren’t locking like the ones on roofbox.co.uk, so not sure how much they tell me. The bits at the ends of the aero bars do have an annoying habit of falling off and getting lost, though. 😕Posted 4 years ago
