The AeroBlade Edge

Thule's AeroBlade Edge crossbars mount directly to your vehicle's elevated, factory side rails to create a roof rack that is quieter, stronger, and more aerodynamic than almost anything on the road. The low-profile, arced shape of the bars couples with the unique WindDiffuser stripping to produce a bar that is so quiet you'll forget you even have a rack on your car. Many factory and aftermarket roof racks produce an annoying whistle that can only be quelled by adding a fairing to the system. Not only is a fairing unnecessary with the AeroBlade Edge, but adding one would actually make it louder and less aerodynamic.


WindDiffuser Technology

A built-in T-track sits along the top of each bar, near the front. When no accessories are mounted, the included WindDiffuser rubber stripping covers the T-slots. (You can also cut the stripping so that it can be placed in the slots around any carriers or accessories that are mounted.) The rubber stripping serves to keep dirt and grime out of each T-slot and provides a little scratch-resistant cushion for any mounted items.


The unique aspect of the WindDiffuser, which comes standard with the AeroBlade Edge, is the raised, angled vectors (or ribbing). This textured surface disrupts and redirects the air flowing over the bar, tripping it to create turbulence and clean air release. The result is less wind noise and drag, little to no annoying whistle, and a more aerodynamic rack. In fact, the AeroBlade Edge crossbars have been shown to produce 90 percent less sound energy than the elliptical Thule Aero bars, making them the quietest style of load bars in the industry.


Aerodynamic Design

Thule took a note from the manufacturers of high-performance cars, such as Ferrari and Maserati, and designed the AeroBlade Edge with a Kammback (or Kamm-tail) style. This crossbar does not have a full-length teardrop-type tail; rather, it is cut off, leaving a square end at the rear of the bar. The aerodynamic effect is essentially the same as it would be if the bar continued into a full teardrop shape. Air continues to move over it in a streamlined fashion, flowing along the bar as it would if the tail were complete. Because there is no tail, though, the bar is smaller and weighs less.


Strong, Durable Construction

The Thule AeroBlade Edge load bars are constructed of extruded aluminum to ensure an extra-sturdy roof rack system. During the extrusion process, metal is shaped to form a complex BoxBeam design on the interior of each bar, as seen in the cross section of the AeroBlade Edge. Each fold adds to the overall strength and rigidity of the bar. This process creates crossbars that are primarily hollow but still reinforced for added strength. The result is a bar that can withstand more than 800 lbs of force, yet weighs so little that it takes up only a slight portion of your load capacity.


AeroBlade Edge Installation

The mounting style of the AeroBlade Edge offers the most surface contact of any side-rail-mounted crossbars, ensuring that the roof rack is solid and secure. To install the rack, first measure the diameter of your roof rack side rails. There are 4 notches in the rubber-coated steel mounting straps to accommodate side rails of different sizes. Once you determine the appropriate notch to use, remove the crossbar covers and connect the straps to the feet. Wrap each strap under and around the side rail, and snap it into place on the posts at the top of the foot. The spring-loaded feet will slide in and out on the crossbars to ensure they are properly centered on your side rails. To complete installation, use the included tool to tighten the straps around the bars until they audibly click and then replace the crossbar covers.


Mounting Roof Rack Accessories in T-Slots

Mounting roof rack accessories is quick and easy with the AeroBlade Edge. Simply remove the crossbar cover, slide in your accessory, and replace the cover. Some accessories may require Xadapt hardware (sold separately), and trimming of the WindDiffuser strip may be required to accommodate accessory mounting hardware. To deter theft of your carriers - and the crossbars - add Thule One-Key System lock cylinders (sold separately) to the covers.

Video Transcript for Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule line of AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack Systems. Now, these are going to be a really nice solution for getting your outdoor recreational equipment where you want to go, but they're also really handy for freeing up some space inside the vehicle. You can use a rooftop box or a rooftop basket, get some of those items out, get more people inside.Now, the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack System gives us a much more sleek style roof rack system than what we're used to as the traditional AeroBlade setups. Those are going to extend out past our foot pack. This leads to a much more factory style look without that overhang, and because we're going to be reducing the amount of bar and foot pack we have on our roof, it could help save us some money at the pump.Now, the crossbars are going to have the same great aerodynamic shape that we get out of the traditional Thule AeroBlades, making for an extremely quiet system. The removable end caps of the Edge System are going to allow us to quickly access the T-slot; you can see that right here.

You'll see the removable strip located inside. We can cut this to fit any accessories we want to put into the T-slot. You do want to be sure that you put that back in around it. That's going to help reduce any wind, kind of buffeting in that area creating noise.Now, each of our covers is going to come with a plastic cord here that you can use a flathead to unlock and lock. Now, if you want some additional security, these can be replaced with part number TH450400.

That'll give you four keyed-alike lock cores to go in there, not only to protect your roof rack system for theft, but anything you might have mounted in your T-slot.Now, the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack System has been designed to work with the raised factory side rails. The flush mount factory side rails, fixed mounting points, and bare roofs. Now, since each kit has been designed to fit your particular application, it helps offer a quick and easy installation.They're available in silver as we have here, or if you'd like it to more closely match your vehicle's trim, in black. Now, internally we have an aluminum reinforced construction, so any kind of flex or give isn't going to be an issue, and whether you choose the silver or the black, they're going to have an anodized finish. You're not going to have to worry at all about corrosion.Now, when comparing the AeroBlade Edge System to other roof rack systems in which the crossbar is going to end in the foot pack, the Thule has the lowest profile.

It doesn't stick up as much as what we get out of some of the other manufacturers. So, if overhead clearance is an issue in the parking garages or home garages, something like that, this might be a really good choice.Something that I would prefer that this had that it doesn't are the locking cores. It's a big investment. You really don't want it disappearing, so with some of the other systems, they do include the locking cores. With this one, you'd have to purchase them separately.We've tested the roof rack system out, and after loading it up with our bike and skis really had no strength issues.

It's really sturdy, and while traveling down the road with it empty or with accessories on it really didn't notice any change in the noise level. That's going to be echoed in a lot of the customer reviews also.It's like Caleb M. said, "It only took 30 minutes to do a full install. Quiet; I can't even tell they've been installed," or like Jim G. said that, "It fits great and it looks good, that it's very sturdy," or like David P. said, "The fit was great and the installation was very easy. My friends say it looks like it has always been there." That's going to complete our look at the Thule line of the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack System.

Absolutely love this rack set. Perfect fit for the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. (7501 and 7502) and the matte black finish really looks great. Set up is easy, and took about 15 minutes. No complications with sunroof view or functioning. Second time I have made a purchase through etrailer. Second time I have been impressed 227068

Easy installation. Directions were simple enough to grasp. No issues. Incredibly fantastic fit and look on my new 2016 Cherokee. Perfect. One review did mention that the design does infringe on available realestate on the rail, which is true. But not a real issue in my personal case. It's a small roof anyway. Not enough room for a bike, and ski rack combined - but I'll make due. It's a fair sacrifice for the very streamlined fit. Also - etrailer rocks. Incredible customer service. Jg 325838

really great looking product nice color and style, fits right in with my jeep Cherokee Trailhawk like it came with the roof rack from the factory. Its also very broad, bigger and sturdier than I thought it would be, the rubber gripping strip along the top of the blade is a nice touch as well . it has a nice aerodynamic look like wings on a plane which was also was a good surprise. I haven't had it for long but I'm sure its going to do its job just fine as well as look very good on any vehicle. worth the price in my opinion. 246959

These crossbars for the factory side rails fit our 2014 Mazda CX-5 perfectly. I chose this style because I did not want anything hanging over the side where I can bump my head getting in and out of the car. The fit gets snug if you try to put the rear rail all the way at the end of the side rails, indicating the side rails are closer together at the back than the front. I was trying for maximum spread since I'm carrying a 17 foot kayak. They work well, look good and are quite sturdy. 157077

Easy to install on my 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, even for a non-mechanically oriented person like myself. Very solid. Does NOT interfere with panoramic sunroof as some warnings had mentioned. Haven’t taken it on the road yet, but expect it to be quiet based on other reviews. etrailer.com shipping was fast - received in just one and and a half days. The installation video on the site was very helpful...better than the included written instructions. Highly recommend this rack and etrailer.com. 640909

ordered these bars for my 2018 Highlander for a Thule force XL, they fit GREAT and the look is sweet! now I need to get some same key locking cores for everything but these are top notch! Never dreamed I would spend a grand on a roof box and bars, but with my family of 5, and the lack of cargo space in the HL it's GREAT! We came from a 2008 Escalade ESV with TONS of space but got sick of the TANK! 485234

Review from a similar Thule AeroBlade Edge in Roof Rack


Installed on a 2014 Toyota 4Runner Trail edition with no issues. took about 15 mins to install the first rail and 7 mins for the second. Looks good on the vehicle and matches the paint (black). The day after installation I drove about 600 miles to a lake, didn't even think to listen for noise, so it appears they are too quiet to notice. Note, though, that I did install them in the predefined "cross rail" positions for minimum wind noise. Toyota has stickers on the top of the roof rails to indicate where cross bars should be installed, I installed them there. About 24-25" apart. Strapped a few kayaks on these and drove around some, no issues. Went with the TH544 locks (sold separately) as well. Those installed quite easily, just push them in with the insertion key and lock with the other key. Very satisfied with both purchases and hope to get a lot of use out of both. 216158

I purchased the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack for my 2006 Mercedes ML350. I bought it to go with the Thule Glide and Set carrier so I could transport my kayak. The rack is extremely well made and fit my vehicle perfectly. It went on very easily and is very sturdy. I also bought four Thule core locks to go with it for peace of mind. One can not go wrong with Thule products. 189393

These fit my 2015 Porsche Cayenne Turbo with factory rails nicely on setting “2” in about 15 minutes. I can easily slide forward or back independently as I need which nice for loading different items that are shorter (bikes) or longer (SUPs). They do fit lower to the car which is great with my ski box in low clearance garages or simply reaching into. Would suggest without hesitation. They are not extremely wide as they fit between roof rails which may not be ideal for people loading a few bikes or wider objects. Packaging should have been taped more securely but nothing was missing or damaged when they arrived with the box open(!!), which was fortunate. 459270

I was concerned about the fit given that the dealership said this unit would not fit this car with a sun roof. I discovered etrailer during my search for more fit up information. etrailer had better information than even Thule. As a bonus, the cost was lower than other sites I visited. The materials were as advertised, well packaged and shipped on time. The fit and quality of the Thule racks was great. Very sturdy build and easy to install. Very happy. 494795

I ordered a couple different items but the primary reason for my order was a purchase of Thule cross bars to fit the factory rails on my SUV. I had done a lot of research of different brands but a discussion with an employee at etrailer.com convinced me that I was right in considering the Thule product to be the best fit for my needs. The cross bars arrived quickly & I installed them in about an hour. They look great (my wife said it looks like they were installed by the factory). I like them so much that I will consider purchasing a second set of cross bars for another vehicle. It is a pleasure doing business with a company like etrailer.com. They have excellent descriptions & photos of their products on their website, everything I needed was in stock & the service & follow up is remarkable! 401881

Hi Scott,How many locks does roof rack TH7503-TH7503 require?Thanks,Matt

-- comment by: Matt - 06/11/2014

The Thule # TH7503-TH7503 roof rack requires at a minimum 2 locking cores, one for each crossbar, but to fully secure the entire rack to your vehicle I recommend using 4 locking cores. Depending on the roof rack accessories that you will be using, you might also want locking cores for those as well. I have included a link to the Thule Locking Cores that we currently have, and you can choose the keyed alike quantity to suit your needs.

These bars went on without issues, and sit well on the factory rails of my 2018 Tiguan, almost look OEM. They are not much higher than the rails but do just about clear the antenna stub in the back. I like how they come with a “torque wrench” Allen key. Installation can easily be done by a single person. I’d recommend covering the roof with a blanket though. 574188

Bought this for a 2015 Subaru Forester XT with oem side rails each product came in their own Thule box. 2 Thule boxes were inside a larger etrailer. items were free floating and had room to move and bounce around inside the box. everything came undamaged and the Thule boxes in nearly pristine condition; considering the eTrailer box was slightly dented. everything else was standard new product stuff from the factory. Thule Aeroblade edge bars came well packaged. instructions are IKEA style instructions. easy to install, it really helps to watch the install video available on this website. the torque spec for tightening the straps is 2nm which is roughly 17ft lb/in. the bars do not produce ANY noise what so ever. super quiet as if there arent any bars. the bars are solid and fit my Yakima big powderhound snowboard rack. overall, very happy with the product. 226843

First of, etrailer.com did an awesome job in shipping these out fast. Very pleased & impressed. About the roof racks, these things are awsome. They look great (best I've seen from any manufacturer), installs easily and appear well built & very sturdy. Already went on a road trip carrying a loaded XXL cargo box. No issues at all. Again, very happy with the purchase. 138313

The Cross bars are great and far superior to the factory cross bars because they aren't fixed. The factory cross bars only have one mounting location and it's too close together to clear most snowboard bindings. The aluminum Thule rack looks great on my wife's Silver 2014 Ford Escape Titanium with silver roof rails. No noticeable wind noise and the couldn't be easier to mount. The rubber mounting points appear like they won't damage or wear any paint off of the roof rails either. I have a very low clearance in my garage and was hopping that the AeroBlade Edge bars would mount low enough to clear and they do. The top of the bar is about 3.25 inches above the roof at the sides. It appeared like the AeroBlade Crossroads bars would sit a bit higher that's why I went with the AeroBlade edge. I ended up modifying the mounts of the Thule Pull Top Slide-Out Ski and Snowboard Carrier (also purchased from etrailer) to sit flush with the cross bars to gain a few inches of clearance. Basically I took the universal mounting feet off and use standard Thule t-bolts to mount the rack flush. Much cleaner looking in addition to the additional clearance too. Etrailer was great, upgraded my shipping and the information online here was really helpful. Would definitely buy from them again. Now we pray for snow! 106832

I like the quality of the roof rack and style but! when ordering I was unaware of other part needed. I only ordered the cross arms first and when I when to mount it to the Jeep I could not. I needed the THKIT3142 which fits into the factory rail system. I read the reviews but missed the one about the above kit. I didn't notice that one came with the kit and the one I bought did not. Might want to think about a flag that comes up to ask the buyer if they need it. No problem for me I don't need the rack until a summer trip. 492715

John,Thank you for your review. Just a quick tip, when you put your vehicle information in the fitguide on the website and then put in your vehicle style when you add the parts to your cart the website will automatically add the the fit kit for you. I see that you have a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a group e package that will require part # THKIT3142
Thule Fit Kit for Podium Style Foot Pack #3142
$119.95
to put the bars on your vehicle. This kit will allow you the attach the bars to the factory fixed mounting points on your Jeeps roof.

Wow !!!! Excellent service and very fast shipping. I bought the Yakima Megawarrior cargo basket with the Thule Aeroblade roof rack and the Carpod walled folding cargo basket. I love the way these parts fit as well as the cargo carrying capacity. I really can’t say enough about trailer customer service and shipping they really do place value in their customers. Would highly recommend using this company for your part needs !!! 529598

Review from a similar Thule AeroBlade Edge in Roof Rack


Purchased for an 8000 mile roadtrip last summer. A perfect fit for our Ford Flex. Easy to locate correct model on etrailer.com website and best price we could find. Install was a snap with good instructions. Great customer support at Thule - totally class company. We used it to mount our Thule luggage carrier as well as fishing poles on the sides. Had minimal effect on MPG. Couldn't be happier with Thule AND etrailer.com. 522316

Hi, I was wondering if there is an accessory to correct a 3/4-inch drop from the front to the back bar? See photos. Thanks. 697057

The slope that you are seeing is due to the profile of your vehicle. I have confirmed with my contacts at the manufacturer and there are no adapters available to level out your roof rack. As long as your lumber is secured properly you should not have any issues.

Not intuitive to assemble, but the online videos were VERY helpful. Went together very easily and fit exactly. Road tested with cargo box -- seems completely solid. Would recommend to others looking for crossbars -- I got much better service here than my car's manufacturer could provide! 678309

  • 6 Ski Rack Recommendation for 2016 Jeep Cherokee with Raised Roof Rails
  • I have a solution but Thule does not recommend the # TH5401 for the raised rails of your 2016 Jeep Cherokee. Instead you would want part # TH7326 which also carries 6 skis and then install the roof rack part # TH7501B-TH7502B and you would be set.

  • Fairing Recommendation for 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen with Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack
  • Since you have the Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack part number # TH7501B-TH7502B installed on your 2016 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen you'd need the shorter 32 inch long fairing part # TH8700 to better match the length of the bars. Ideally the fairing you go with matches the same width as the feet of the roof rack.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen
  • I personally prefer and recommend roof racks that appear the most like factory roof racks for your 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen. Not only will it look more like a factory part but they are also more aerodynamic and create less noise and wind resistance. For your Golf I recommend Thule AeroBlade Edge roof rack # TH7501B-TH7502B for black bar or # TH7501-TH7502 for silver bars. Not only are these roof racks aerodynamic but they are also light weight and corrosion resistant because of...

  • Aerodynamic Roof Rack Crossbars for 2015 VW SportWagen with Panoramic Sunroof
  • For the 2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen the Thule Aeroblade Edge Rack part # TH7501B-TH7502B that you referenced is going to be the most aerodynamic option we carry. The bars are shaped to provide the best aerodynamics and since the bars do not extend past the feet of the rack they will sit a bit lower (gets them out of some of the wind) and would have less bar to make wind noise. If the panoramic roof, when opened, raises higher than the tops of the side rails then you will not be able...

  • Best Roof Top Cargo Box Recommendation for a 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen
  • The nicest box available would be the Thule Hyper XL part # TH612. This box has an interior light, an automotive 2-tone paint job, and can open from either side. This cargo box has been confirmed as a fit for your 2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen if it has a factory roof rack, but if you do need crossbars you would also need the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7501B-TH7502B.

  • Will the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack Fit a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
  • Yes, the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack part # TH7501B-TH7502B that you referenced is a fit for your wife's 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. The TH7502 is designated to be the frontmost bar while TH7501 is for the rear. This is a very nice system that has aero shaped crossbars that are designed to reduce wide noise/drag. They also have integrated channel mounts which will be needed for some rooftop carries due to the limited clearance between the bottom of the crossbars and roof. The only...

  • AeroBlade Roof Rack for 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk w/ Panoramic Sunroof and Factory Side Rails
  • When it comes to a roof rack for your 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk w/ panoramic sunroof and factory side rails, I recommend the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack, # TH7501B-TH7502B. The crossbars are black and this style is one of my favorites because not only does it offer the low-profile, aerodynamic design but this roof rack looks great on the vehicle. A super clean look. Since you do have the panoramic sunroof, I always like to remind everyone to use extreme caution when loading anything...

  • Can Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack for 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen Allow Moonroof to Open
  • I checked with Thule and for the Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack part numbers # TH7501B-TH7502B that you referenced this is the fit tip they offer regarding the moonroof: "Thule does not recommend opening, venting, or retracting the sunroof/moonroof/glass roof while the rack is mounted. Damage to the glass and/or opening mechanism can occur."

  • Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen
  • Yes, the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7501B-TH7502B that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen that has raised side rails and would work well for you. Because of that I would recommend it for you. This wouldn't interfere with the moon roof your vehicle, but you should note that crossbars will create quite a bit of noise if the moon roof is open.

  • Distance from Where Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack Installs on Rail to Bottom of Bar
  • From the side rail the # TH7501B-TH7502B installs on to the bottom of the crossbar of the kit measures 1-3/8 inches.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Jeep Cherokee with Raised Roof Rails
  • The usable crossbar space of the Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof rack part numbers # TH7501B-TH7502B that you referenced is 27-3/4 inches which shouldn't be a problem for your Rhino Rack cargo basket which I am pretty sure is the part # RMCB02. Since X-Tray is not the standard name for this basket you'd just need to simply measure the width of your current mounting brackets to see if the outside to outside dimension is less than 27-3/4 inches. Thule has the wider crossbar setup as the Thule...

  • Quiet and Efficient Roof Rack for a 2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen
  • We have not yet had the opportunity to install the Rola roof rack # 59820 on a vehicle so we do not have a video at this time. Elliptical bars are going to offer the least wind resistance and thus less noise than other types of systems. The best system is going to be the Thule AeroBlade system such as # TH7501B-TH7502B. I have included a link to the roof rack options for your Jetta. Anything with round or square bars is more cost effective but will have more wind resistance and noise....

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen For OEM Look
  • For your 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen the best solution we have is the Thule Aeroblade Edge Rack part # TH7501B-TH7502B that you referenced. The bars of this kit do not extend past the feet of the rack so it will give you a very factory look and will give you minimal wind noise as well. This is the nicest rack available for your vehicle so I would recommend it highly.

  • Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier Recommendation for 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude with Raised Roof Rails
  • For your 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude with raised roof rails the Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack part number # TH7501B-TH7502B is a confirmed fit and would be my recommendation. I like the aero shape of these and the fact that they do not extend past the feet of the rack. This allows the least amount of wind resistance and looks really nice as well. The Thule Portage Canoe Carrier part # TH819 would then be a great carrier for the canoe. It comes with straps as well.

  • Can Moonroof be Opened on 2013 Nissan Murano with Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack Installed
  • It all depends on how the moonroof operates on your 2013 Nissan Murano. If it slides back into a cavity in the roof and doesn't raise up above the roof line then opening it will not be a problem. If it does raise up above the roof line then as long as you have the roof rack crossbars positioned so that there can be no contact then that would be fine too. If your 2013 Nissan Murano has the factory side rails that run front to back then using the AeroBlade Edge roof rack, # TH7503B-TH7503B,...

  • Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack Fit for a 2011 Jetta SportWagen
  • The Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack, # TH7501B-TH7502B, will fit your 2011 Jetta SportWagen. The ends of the crossbars have rubber-coated steel straps that wrap around the factory side rails on your roof. This roof rack fits a wide variety of other vehicles. Since it mounts to raised roof side rails, it does not need a vehicle specific fit kit. The main factor that determines a fit is the width of the roof. If you have another vehicle that you will want to use this roof rack on, feel...
