Calix H20 roof box, gloss black, no. ATH20-GB

RRP: 625.00

A new Long Wide box of the highest quality, with a size, shape and internal fittings that optimise its load carrying space. It’s 200cm long x 94cm wide x 38cm high.

It’s a very handsome box that we think is the best premium box of this size and shape that we’ve seen.

We’ve sold hundreds of different roof boxes over the last 21 years, so can tell you with confidence that the Calix H20 (H 20, not H2O) is a real head-turner. We’re really pleased to have the opportunity to sell it, on account of its quality, its ease of use, and its styling.

The quality is right up there with the best boxes on the market. It’s KAMEI Corvara quality, Thule Dynamic quality, as is apparent from its weight, the ease of unlocking and locking, and the stiffness of the base when attached to the roof bars.

It’s 200cm long, designed to complement the shorter roof lengths of the latest estates, 4x4s and SUVs – it doesn’t hang out over the windscreen, and has a rear that is shaped to accommodate rear spoilers, complete with a recess for shark fin antennae.

You’ll see that the lid of the box picks up both side styling and front styling features. Styling the side and front profiles of a roof box so they look right is a really tricky task – many manufacturers still stick with the rounded look, others go for an aggressive cut off look, but the Calix H20 does something unique, and we think it really works well. Seen from the front, its styling lines mirror the side and bonnet styling lines that are typical of 2018 vehicles.

Calix boxes are made in Sweden, and the development work was mostly done with Volvos, not the BMW 5 series Touring used in these pictures. Even so, it looks really good on this car.

Other features and specifications:

  • External dimensions: 200cm long x 94cm wide x 38cm high
  • Weight: 27kg
  • Maximum load: 75kg
  • Dual side opening, with 3 optimally positioned locks on each side
  • Capacity: 430 litres. At 38cm high, the Calix H20 is lower than some Long Wide boxes, but it’s high enough to accommodate all the bulky test luggage we use. The space in the top of higher roof boxes increases the nominal capacity, but is not usually used at all.
  • The handle on the lid makes the box easier to open and close; it's an additional styling feature in itself.
  • The roof bar fittings are Calix’s Quick Grip. These fit around all the roof bars we sell, but if you also want to carry a bike on the roof then it makes sense to use T-track adapters, shown below. The Quick Grip combines claw-style fittings with an exceptionally low profile. You fit these by sliding the claws together so they touch both sides of the roof bar, then use the ratchet to tighten them – as shown in the picture. Extra tension is provided as you flip the cover from the open to the closed position - it won't shut properly unless you've fastened it tight enough. They’re very neat, very satisfactory to use, the lowest profile claw-style fittings on the market.
  • City Crash tested. The Calix H20 includes an internal safety nose, designed to contain skis in the event of a collision. This is removable, but as it’s specifically shaped to the box, it makes sense to leave it in place.
  • An internal LED light is included; it is light sensitive so turns on and off automatically.
  • Made from ABS plastic; the plastic and all other components are fully recyclable.
  • 5 year guarantee

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our Standard two to four day service is £6.50 (£11.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Express Delivery (one or two days) is £9.50 (£14.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (courier, usually Express Delivery).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Express Delivery need to be received by 2pm.

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday.

What about Next Working Day delivery? 
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express Delivery’.  Many Express Delivery orders will arrive on the next working day, but some will arrive on the second working day, or be split between these two days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can, and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
