In terms of load capacity it looks like 165 lbs per pair and Thule claims they are the strongest bars with a vertical load test of more than 800 lbs. Not something I would want to test myself.
I use those bar pads on my Thule square bars and strap my kayak straight to the bars. Just got back from a trip to Florida (I live in Indiana) and had zero issues.

Good luck.
