Roof Box Design and Impact on Gas Mileage

There is without question monetary savings and huge improvements in comfort to be made by selecting a roof top cargo box and crossbars setup tailored to your car and your needs.

Many of us have experienced unpleasant noise, vibrations, and scare moments when you think your roof box is about to blow open driving down the highway. Others have experienced problems getting into low over-head garages at home or at the resorts, and many have questioned the poor aesthetics and seemingly lack of effort to design a roof box that resembles that of modern cars.

Earlier this year we were approached by a customer who described that he was fairly happy with his existing roof box (no need to mention brand name); it was spacious, could carry long skis and was fairly easy to take on and off the car. However, the customer was not very happy about the immense drag with subsequent wind noise and adverse impact on gas mileage the box had, and they were therefore interested in investigating what else was available on the market.

With the Skiguard Sport model, we could offer this customer an easy to install, universal fit, low-profile Ski & Cargo Box long enough for their longest cross-country skis, large enough for their largest ski and boot bags, and aerodynamic enough to save them 30% on gas compared! Yes, we admit that this is a special case and that most will never see an improvement of this magnitude. But, there is without question monetary savings and huge improvements in comfort to be made by selecting a roof top cargo box and crossbars setup tailored to your car and your needs.

Don’t settle for the simple. Talk to the experts at Skiguard and use their expert knowledge and experience to help you find the very best solution for your car and your needs!
