I’ve only used the knockoff crossbars once so far but it was a 1k Mile round-trip with nearly 100lbs of gear in a Yakima SkyBox 18. I was really nervous setting out but they held true and had no issues.

Random comment about roof racks that may be useful to some...I work in the aerospace industry and asked the guys who run our wind tunnel testing about how leaving my roof racks on effects my fuel economy. Considering our labs did some research for Thule in the past I figured they know best.

We did not put the disco in the tunnel but similar models have noted a loss of 5-10% fuel when using a roof rack and driving over 100km/h (Highway speeds in Ontario where I am from). After learning this, I sadly removed my racks. I love the look of them on the vehicle and I do use them but I am now in the habit of removing them when I do not need them on.
