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. 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.

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

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

Attached are some photos of the product crossbars mounted on my 2014 Cherokee. I love the product but have not figured out how to remove without damaging the plastic screw where a lock would be. Probably need to purchase the locks to replace the plastic screws. Product worked beautifully and I am very satisfied with my experience with etrailer.com 138756

I love these crossbars. The installation on my 2015 Jeep Patriot was quick and painless. Though I do have to say the paper installation instructions didn't help much, and made me think installation would be much more difficult. I was most impressed about the fact that I never noticed any wind noise with these crossbars. I like to drive with the windows down, and even at speeds of 60 mph I never noticed wind noise from the crossbars. I feel very secure when using these crossbars to carry my 9-1/2 foot kayak. 217416

Quick delivery and very happy with the quality of this . Instillation was simple and the end result looks and feels very sturdy. I went for a test drive up to 75 mph and had zero wind noise with the windows and sunroof open. Can't wait to put up the canoe and hit the lake with family. Thank you etrailer! 264754

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

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

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

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.

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

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 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

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

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

Superb Customer service. Prompt shipping. Actually shipment got to my home a day earlier than I was expecting. Product was packaged in oversized box with plenty of padding and protection. Only complaint, (not that it's major) but there were absolutely no instillation instructions with product. IF someone has any mechanical skills they can figure it out, but always good to know your installing properly. Installed withing 15 minutes on my 2016 Ford Flex. 303293

Comments

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.

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.

Review from a similar Thule AeroBlade Edge in Roof Rack


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

Review from a similar Thule AeroBlade Edge in Roof Rack


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

Jeep Cherokee 2016 Limited. The fit was great, and the installation was very easy (you will need a step ladder). I took a few pictures of it installed, and I think it looks so good my friends say it looks like it has always been there. 281517

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


Comments

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.

  • Best Kayak & Bike Rack Carrier For A 2015 Jeep Patriot
  • In order to haul a kayak and multiple bikes on your 2015 Jeep Patriot there are a few different options. The first option entails a roof mounted kayak and bike rack carrier. The second system entails a combination of a roof mounted kayak carrier and a trunk mounted bike rack carrier. This option will allow for a wider variety of bike racks in addition to an easier method of loading your equipment. For the first option I recommend the Thule Complete Crossroad Kit with 50" Long Bars and...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for 2016 Subaru Crosstrek
  • For your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek, the Thule AeroBlade Edge Aero Bar Roof Rack, part # TH7502-TH7502 is a confirmed fit as long as your vehicle has factory installed rails that run front to back. This is a great aluminum roof rack designed to reduce wind noise and drag, resulting in a very quiet ride. The crossbars simply attach to your vehicle's factory roof rails via rubber-coated stainless steel straps. I have included a video link demonstrating this roof rack for your review. The Thule...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Grand Cherokee Overland with Flush Rails
  • I spoke to Thule about this issue and they said that they used to use the THKIT4019 to fit the Laredo Group E roof racks on the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but moving forward they are now using a different style clip system and that is why the THKIT4019 is no longer available. For your vehicle you would want the following parts to put an Thule Aeroblade roof rack like the one you referenced on your vehicle.

  • Roof Rack Recommendations for a 2016 Subaru Forester with Side Rails
  • I will be happy to make some roof rack recommendations for your 2016 Subaru Forester with the factory side rails. My top pick is the Thule AeroBlade Edge, # TH7502B-TH7502B for black bars or # TH7502-TH7502 for silver bars. The Thule AeroBlade bars have a wing shape for less wind resistance and noise compared to round or square bars. They are made of light weight aluminum for both strength and corrosion resistance. And the Edge versions look more like a factory roof rack than other models. My...

For a roof rack similar to the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7502-TH7502 that you referenced that is confirmed to fit your vehicle you would want the following part numbers to complete the roof rack: Thule Aeroblade Load Bars # TH711200 Thule Podium Foot Pack # TH460R Thule...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota RAV4 with Raised Side Rails
  • Thule has determined that the recommended crossbar length for your 2016 Toyota RAV4 with raised side rails is 58 inches and the part # TH45058 would be the square bar setup to use. That being said I have a perfect recommendation I can make since you don't want bars to extend past the raised rails. The Thule Aeroblade Edge part # TH7502-TH7502 uses a flush bar type setup where the crossbars do not extend past the feet of the rack at all like you are interested in. This would work...

  • Will Rola Roof Mount Cargo Basket Fit Yakima RailBar Crossbars on a 2010 Subaru Forester
  • The Yakima RailBar system, part # Y00447-0448, is compatible with your 2010 Subaru Forester if it is currently equipped with factory side rails. Please check the vehicle roof capacity of your Subaru and make sure that between the roof mounted cargo carriers and cargo itself you will not exceed the roof carrying capacity of your 2010 Subaru Forrester. As you indicated this crossbars on the RailBar have a width of 3-5/8 inches and the Rola cargo basket # 59504 can accommodate a width...

As you can see in the photos, the difference in height between the Crossroads system you have now and the Aeroblade system is approximately 1.1 inches.

  • Best Roof Rack for a 2014 Nissan Rogue with Side Rails and Panoramic Roof
  • The Thule AeroBlade Edge system, # TH7502-TH7502, is going to be your best option. (Please note that the old fit said TH7503-TH7502 but the correct fit is TH7502-TH7502.) These are pretty much the best crossbars on the market right now. They are quiet, create less drag than other bars, and they look good, dare I say sweet. Companies make products to fit the wider bars so you wouldn't have to use a bunch of different adapters for most products. The Thule AeroBlade bars are 3-1/8 inches...

  • Roof Rack Recommendations for a 2014 Kia Soul
  • Rola roof rack # 59789 is designed to fit fixed anchor points on the roof of a 2014 Kia Soul that does not have any other crossbars or rails (a naked roof). Rails would run front to back on the vehicle roof. If the vehicle does have flush mounted rails that run front to back then you can use Rola roof rack # 59790 which clamps to the side rails. And if it has raised side rails with a gap between the bottom of the rail and the top of the roof then you can use Thule AeroBlade Edge roof...

  • Will Thule Xsporter Pro Cause Any Damage to Truck Bed Rails

The Xsporter will clamp onto your side rails and so long as you tighten clamp bolts to 10 ft-lbs using the included 7/32" Allen Key you won't encounter any issues.

I recommend going with a Thule roof rack so that you can use the same keys for both the roof rack and your cargo box. Of the roof rack options available from Thule the AeroBlade style is the way to go. The aerodynamic design cuts down on wind noise and drag compared...

  • Thule Cargo Box Recomemndation for the 2014 Jeep Cherokee With Thule Aeroblad Edge Roof Rack

Honestly, with a cargo box installed on the roof of your vehicle it would be incredibly noisy if you opened the sunroof. Plus if you check out the picture...
