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.

2015 Subaru Forester

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

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

Review from a similar Thule AeroBlade Edge in Roof Rack


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


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.

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

As long as you keep the paint and the straps clean you wouldn't have any issues at all. The rubber is soft enough that it would not hurt the painted surface of the rails.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for Carrying Thule Cargo Box on a 2016 Subaru Forester
    For your 2016 Subaru Forester with raised siderails the Thule Aeroblade Edge Kit part # TH7502-TH7502 would be an excellent choice based on what you said you needed. Normally we don't recommend opening the sunroof on a vehicle with crossbars installed as the noise will be rather intense, but if your sunroof when open does not go higher than the top of your side rails then it should open just fine. (Aside from the noise.) This rack would work great too with the Thule Pulse part # TH615...

  • Can I Leave the Thule Roof Rack part # TH7502-TH7502 on the Rails of my 2014 Jeep Latitude
    Thule recommends you remove your crossbars when not in use to help you maximize your fuel mileage and to minimize wear and tear on the rack. Crossbars can also create a little noise at highway speeds so having them off would ensure you the quietest ride possible with the best possible fuel mileage. I spoke to my contact at Thule and she informed me that you can leave the rack on as long as you want. However, if you wanted to leave the Thule Roof Rack part # TH7502-TH7502 on your raised...

  • Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack for a 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek with Factory Side Rails
    You are correct, Thule does show # TH7502-TH7503 for the 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek which you can get by ordering # TH7502-TH7503. I have included a link to a video that shows the rack being installed on a different vehicle that takes the same bars.

  • Would Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack part # TH7502-TH7502 Fit a 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek
    Yes, we checked with Thule and the Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack part # TH7502-TH7502 that you referenced is confirmed as a fit for your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek with raised side rails. I attached an install video that shows this rack being installed on a very similar 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek for you to check out as well. For a longer bar setup the part numbers # TH711420 and # TH710401 would be what you would need. The bars would be 53 inches that come with this kit.

  • Roof Rack and Cargo Box Recommendation for a 2015 Toyota Sienna
    For a roof rack for your 2015 Toyota Sienna I really like the Thule Aeroblade roof rack you mentioned that is part number # TH7502-TH7502. This rack will give you the quietest roof rack on the market since it has aero shaped bars that provide minimal wind resistance and because the bars of the rack do not extend past the feet of the rack. This is what I would recommend for you. The Thule Force XL part # TH6358B would also be a great cargo box for this rack that would give you 18 cubic...

  • Correct AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack for a 2014 Kia Soul
    The correct Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack for your 2014 Kia Soul is part # TH7502-TH7502 if you have raised side rails, part # TH7602-TH7602 and part # THKIT4051 if you have flush side rails, or part # TH7602-TH7602 and part # THKIT3146 if you have a bare roof. The Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack part # TH7603-TH7603 that you referenced would not fit as the crossbars are too long for your roof.

  • Can a Cargo Box Be Installed on a 2005 Cadillac SRX with Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack
    The correct Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack for your 2005 Cadillac SRX is part # TH7502-TH7502. I confirmed this with Thule for you as well. In regards to sunroof clearance, this is not something that we nor Thule tests for because is it not recommended. The noise associated with having the sunroof open and a set of crossbars installed can be somewhat unbearable as well. In regards to a cargo box, you can absolutely install one on your SRX using the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack. I recommend...
