Video Transcript for Thule WingBar Edge Crossbars Review

Hey everyone, it's Evangeline, and today, we're taking a look at the Thule WingBar Edge Crossbars. These are gonna be some heavy-duty crossbars that are also a little bit more low-profile, so we'll talk about that, those features, and how they work with the rest of the Thule roof rack systems. So there's a Thule WingBar Evo and there's a Thule WingBar Edge. So the main difference between the two is one gives you overhang and the other does not. So if you want a sleek, streamlined, and some people think factory look, that's where the Thule WingBar Edge can come in handy. If you want more crossbar space and you have the Evo clamps, that's when you would use the Thule WingBar Evo.

So they're very similar in shape, but very different in functionality. So there's a range of different crossbar sizes, so you can range from your smaller crossbars to your longer crossbars, and you can even have different sizes on your car. So for example, we have the 37 inch here, we have the 41 inch up front, and that's why it's very important to use our fit guide here at where we find the right fit for you and your car. So these are made of aluminum, they're very solid, and I know some crossbars, when they are made of thinner material, they tend to bow in the middle. This, I do not see that ever happening, but for your actual weight capacity, you are limited to what type of system you have on your car and not so much by the bars.

This is available in different colors, so you have black, which is what I have here, and we also have silver. So this has a black powder coat finish, so even as you scratch at it, when you get cargo on there, of course, in extreme situations you can scratch it up, but it should maintain its finish in most situations. If you do see scratches, I recommend going over it with a paint pen, so it maintains its corrosion resistance. It's shaped to be more aerodynamic, so it's tapered in the back and it's taller up front, so that way, it will help guide the wind up and over or around your bars. So this means, compared to your traditional round and square crossbars, definitely less noisy, less wind drag when you're going down on it, especially at highway speeds.

So these are what your crossbars look like when they're not on your car. So the WingBar Edge has a different design from the WingBar Evo, they're slightly different in terms of shape, and a quick look on the inside when you take out the weather strip, shows the little tab for your Edge towers. So when you get your crossbar, you're gonna get these weather strips, so these are gonna cover your T-track channel, but also, help move the air over. So you're gonna take them apart, and then you're just gonna push them into your crossbar, and this is gonna be the way that they're facing. So your weather stripping splits apart in the middle, so that you can slide your T-track accessories through it.

I personally think it's a little tricky to get it through the first part, but once it slides through, it does it very easily. The size of the WingBar is 3 inches and 1/8 inch wide and one inch tall. So most of your accessories will fit around this, just make sure for your older accessories, they may not be used to the modern aero design. So my thoughts on the Thule WingBar Edge Crossbars is, the first step, make sure you have the right system, if you use our fit guide, you'll find the right fit for you and the right kit all packed together. Also, with the Thule WingBar Edge, they are designed to be used with Edge products, so make sure whether it's the Edge raised rail, Edge clamp, Edge flush feet, those are the ones you use with this crossbar. So with all that being said, there's solid, they're sturdy, they are on the bit more premium side, so if you're a big fan of Thule and you like Thule products, definitely fits in there. If you're looking for alternatives, we also have alternatives here at etrailer that are solid choices. And that was a look at the Thule WingBar Edge Crossbars here at etrailer..

One year in, this fit kit and the whole system have worked very well on my Kia EV6.

I miss the simplicity, in terms of cost as well as installation and removal, of the old Thule rectangular-bar racks, but this system looks better, is quiet, won't sag, and seems more robust.


Works great for rooftop carrier.


This "fit kit" from THULE does not impress me much. It does not sit flush with the roof rails of my 2021 Toyota highlander, doesn't really line up with the openings on the flush mount rails, and only attaches to the vehicle via one bolt at each of the 4 mounting locations. In that sense it's inferior to even the OEM toyota roof rack mount.


Needed the Thule bars fast before leaving for a trip. Showed up right when they estimated it would when I ordered. Tutorial video was super helpful. Thank you!!


Love these on my 2011 Porsche Cayenne S


Great product, works flawlessly every t ime!

Super Team super product!

  • Roof Rack for a 2020 Ford Explorer with a Panoramic Sunroof
    It looks like the 2020 Ford Explorer comes stock with the raised rails. For this, I recommend the Thule WingBar Edge Crossbars - Silver # TH53RE or Black # TH69FE, coupled with the Raised Rail Feet # TH69SC. The fact that they have a t-track on top means that you have a wide variety of accessories that you'll be able to mount to them. I spoke with a Thule representative and they assured me that the raised rails of your Explorer would ensure that you will have no problem with the rack...
