Best price: £384.95

At 23kg, the Calix 430 is fairly unwieldy; fitting is a two-person job. Still, it’s the slimmest box on test and is a good (if pricey) option if you want to fix a cycle rack to the roof bars as well. While the capacity trails some rivals, the fixtures are easy to put in place and have a ratchet action that clicks once secured, for peace of mind. Like the Kamei 510, it’s dual-sided and triple central locking mechanisms make it safe and convenient, too.
