THULE are a very reputable make, also Renaul own bars will be ok.
A lot of the problems with roofbars, of any make is that a lot of people don't fit them correctly to the car. They also don't fit the load to the bars correctly. They almost never re-check the security of the load at their first stop either to make sure everything is ok.
As long as you buy specific bars for your Clio ( even HAlfords own brand) and fit both them and the load ( kayak in your case) correctly you shouldn't go far wrong.
