Color:One Color



Load up.

No matter how much room you think you have in your car, by the time you get the bags, bikes, snacks, and dog loaded up, you're stuffed to the gills. Before you spend another road trip driving with no visibility from your back windows, upgrade your packing routine with the Thule Canyon XT Cargo Basket. This solid steel roof basket adds a whopping 12 square feet of extra cargo space to your car and hangs onto any arrangement of gear you can dream up.

If you can secure it, the Canyon XT can hold it (as long as it adds up to less than 150 pounds). Thule wisely added a wind faring to the front of the basket to help with aerodynamics and limit noise on the highway, and the basket's sides are angled to make loading and unloading easy. Pair it the Canyon with just about any rack system you've got—round bars, square bars, factory bars, or aero bars— and get ready to stress less next time you're packing up.

Perfect fit

Got this for my Highlander with the extension and it fits perfectly. I I have a panoramic roof and was concerned that the moonroof wouldn’t clear the U-bolts for the rack, it had no problem at all. Easy to install. Only issue was the bolts holding down the wind deflector kept coming off, so I just used black zip ties.

Solid Piece of equipment

well built, only reason for 4 stars is because it is a bit heavy so it hurts fuel economy a bit.

Aesthetically Pleasing

Bought the Canyon XT for a bike trip for carrying extra items we did not need to have in the vehicle. Performed very well, it is well designed sturdy and created minimum wind noise when travelling. Really liked the overall design as it has a more aesthetically pleasing shape than some of the other rack baskets on the market.

Plenty of storage, and it gives my CR-V some aggressiveness.

Great addition to our 2017 Honda CRV.

Pleased so far with my Thule Wingbar Evo crossbars and Thule Canyon Cargo Basket combo (installed on 2017 CRV) purchased from Rack Attack. Timely delivery, ease of assembly, and installation. One disappointment: three of five bolt / wingnut combos securing the basket wind screen vibrated loose and were lost on first trip. Contacted Rack Attack customer service and was referred to Thule. Thule promptly mailed replacement bolts, etc. (GREAT customer service rep and response; replacement hardware delivered before we returned from our trip.) Caution future purchasers to add LocTite or similar product to these bolts.

Works great, love it

Assembly of the Canyon XT was simple. What I like the most is how quickly it goes on and off the Thule crossbars. When I orderded the Canyon XT, I thought that it would stay on top of the car, but because it is so easy to take off and put on, I attach it only when needed.

2023 crosstrek

I'm not going to lie I use this thing for everything as far as usability works great if I go to haul something and I realize I don't have enough room a lot of times I've thrown it up top and made it home without making another trip all kinds of crazy stuff has been on top of mine in the short time I've had it. But I will say as far as looks it does not look very good the piece that goes on it for looks never quite fit right no matter which way I adjust it I get it straight I drive down the road I look at it and it's wobbly again. Not good when you spend that kind of money on this I mean a brand new car I want everything to look right all my other accessories look good besides this one. I think it's just not cut right to size off a little bit. Also my gas mileage is not near as good as it supposed to be in this car I was told by the dealership it's because the rack maybe it's because that piece I don't know. I'm sure it's affecting it somehow this is a wind flap that doesn't sit right in the Wind.

Beware of shipping and defective pieces

Honestly, I'm so tired of dealing with this thing that I'm going to keep this short. They didn't provide me with shipping updates so it sat outside my apartment building for a full day before i realized it had been delivered. Very lucky it didn't get stolen. They also gave me a defective piece so 2 hours of work on a beautiful Sunday totally wasted until i can get that part. Flimsy wind guard and don't love the reliance on some of the plastic pieces that could easily be metal.
