For most of us, shopping for roof bars is right up there in the excitement stakes with shopping for car insurance or buying new iron for the house. You just want to get it over and done with but want to make sure you get a decent product that does what it’s supposed to and doesn’t cost the earth. Lets face it there are plenty more fun things to be doing, and with that in mind we’ll keep this brief!

What You Need to Know:

The Nordrive Yuro Bars, despite the daft name are a great piece of kit, they’re a mid range set of bars at a low price point and buck that age old adage – “you get what you pay for”. In my opinion you actually get a bit more than you pay for with the Yuro bars, and that is a very rare and good thing!Product Review: Nordrive Yuro Roof Bars

You can fit them in about 5 minutes and they’re compatible with all roof rack accessories, so when you’re rushing around like a mad man on the morning of your holiday or roadtrip, fitting a set of Yuro bars to the car won’t increase the stress levels unduly!

Our short demo video gives you a good idea of how the bars look and fit on a car:

The Nitty Gritty:

Fitment:

The Yuro bars are suitable for cars that have factory fitted raised roof rails, these are the type that have a gap between the roof and the rail that you can get your hand under, usually found on estate cars, 4×4’s and mpv’s. They will fit the vast majority of cars with raised rails but there are a few exceptions, those being cars with oversized rails such as the Nissan pathfinder or Dacia Duster.

Product Review: Nordrive Yuro Roof Bars

They’re extremely simple to fit to your car, so much so that absolutely anybody, as long as they have opposable thumbs should be able do it, you probably won’t even need to read the instructions (we know you weren’t going to anyway – although we recommend you do) You won’t need any tools other than the Allen key which is included in the kit and there are just 4 bolts to tighten.

Material Quality:

The overall quality of materials is really very good and is a notable step up from the Yuro’s main competitor which is the Menabo Brio (these are the roof bars you’ll find from time to time in Lidle or Aldi). The difference in quality is to be expected though as the Brio bars are pretty much the cheapest you can buy. Now we’re not dissing the Brio, it’s a decent entry level product and we’ve previously stocked them here at MicksGareage in-fact and we still sell Menabo products, but the Yuro is in a different league in terms of quality and finish, despite there being only a small difference in price.

Product Review: Nordrive Yuro Roof Bars

The plastics are nicely textured, the rubber contact points with the car are soft, the end caps fit well and don’t fall off, the security locks are unique (some aren’t and use a generic key which isn’t very secure) and the anodised silver finish looks good and doesn’t mark too easily. They’re also quite compact in their design and in terms of the cross bar profile. This is a good thing because the low overall height of 8.5cm does actually help when you’re trying to load heavy things like buggies of golf clubs into a roof box for example. The small profile of the cross bars is a positive point because a smaller frontal surface area creates less aerodynamic drag and impacts less on your fuel economy than a larger bar.

Mounting Accessories:

The aluminium cross bars measure 25mm in height by 39mm in width and feature the T Track system which means that all accessories on the market such as roof boxes, bike racks and watersports carriers will fit.

Product Review: Nordrive Yuro Roof Bars

The T track system allows you to mount accessories along the full length of the bar which is very handy – the mounting feet often get in the way on bars that don’t have the T Track system.
