Default Aldi roof bars

Was at our nearby Aldi today and picked up a pair of roof bars for < $40.

Lockable legs to prevent theft, fit Paj's (and others) with roof rails only.

Rated to carry 90kg and weigh in at SFA by my 'pick em up by hand' scales.

Bars are oval shaped so should be relativly quiet in the wind.

Not all Rola, Rhino, Prorack etc bits and pieces will fit or might need some modification to make fit.

Not sure if it's an Aldi wide thing as haven't seen them in any recent catalogue or online so YMMV but worth a look if you're driving by.

The store I was at had 5 or 6 sets left after I got mine.

I have ALDI ones too and they are ok. Just be mindful that the black plastic caps at both ends of each bar are very easy to break or fall off. I superglued mine.

Just got some of these Aldi bars yesterday. Bought 2 sets as I wanted to be able to to have 3 bars. Got there as the shop opened and got 2 of the four sets they had in stock so if you want some you may have to search around a bit. 80 bucks a set so 3 bars and a spare for about a hundred bucks less than a name brand would cost for a set of 2 bars!! Quality looks good and they feel solid. Easy to fit and look as good as anything else available. Will do me to hang an awning off and lay the occasional fishing rod on but I reckon they would be able to handle a lot more.

Whoops sorry for the double post
But an update.....the bars don't howl at speed. Wouldn't know they were there. Very happy

Got the Aldi bars about 4 years ago now, (also the LED bar), and both great.
Have had some serious weight of timber on with no trouble, and also glued the end caps on.
You will need the fill-in strips underneath as mine made a lot of wind noise even at low speed without.
The weight capacity is better than a lot more expensive brands.
Good luck.

May I ask what a fill in strip is?
Appreciated.

Some roof rack bars have a open strip along the bottom or top of the cross rails (think of a nearly closed off flattened C shape) This can cause whistling at certain speeds. Fill in strip of rubber or plastic stops this.

I have a set of ALDI roof racks which I am returning for refund on the weekend. Not even opened - bought two sets and keeping one set.

Happy to sell them for $100 (what I paid for them) if someone wants them beforehand.

Cash and pick up only - Aspley (Brisbane)

No holds beyond Saturday 10am.

PM me your mobile number if interested.

Just a thought pixie, I bought 2 sets so that I have three bars on the roof and a spare. Having three bars makes carrying stuff a bit easier for me.

I like the way you're thinking and that was my original intention but the rails have a curve so whatever goes on them needs to be flexible. Or I have to take the middle rack off for rigid loads

Ultimately I'll put a backbone system on it.
