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.

Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack for Raised, Factory Side Rails - Aluminum - TH7502-TH7503

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (259 Customer Reviews)

Low-profile, aerodynamic crossbars strap to your vehicle's raised, factory side rails to create a super-strong and ultra-quiet roof rack. The aluminum bars perfectly complement your roofline and have built-in T-tracks for mounting accessories.

2014 Ford Escape

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!

2009 Honda Odyssey

A testament to the quality of these bars is one remained undamaged even though eTrailer crammed it into the box with the cargo container. I'll be happy to leave a review on the second bar if it shows up. I was informed its my problem for not thoroughly inspecting the freight when it arrived.


Very sturdy design. Installation was simple enough. I highly recommend using the Thule One-Key locking cylinders to ensure this investment is well secured.


Ordered the Thule crossbars on a Sunday after 7p. The crossbars were needed for a road trip the following weekend. Turnaround was immediate as I received an email confirmation of shipping within 3 hours of my order.

Excellent service to say the least!

I would definitely consider and use for future purchases.


Delivery to Ketchum Idaho arrived a day earlier than forecast. Items complete and fit as promised. Mercedes GLK.

Review from a similar AeroBlade Edge Crossbar in Roof Rack

The 7602 and 7603 Aeroblade along with fit kit 3132 was a perfect fit for my 2020 Acura MDX. It looks nice and installation was fairly straightforward though the Thule instructions could have been a little more clear.

The only negative is the plastic end caps are held on with a plastic quarter-turn bolt which was not easy to get to engage at first. I don't think these plastic bolts pieces will hold up long term.

You can replace the caps with the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders - Qty 4 Part # TH450400
Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders - Qty 4
. These will be more durable and also add security to your rack.

Great Value. Sturdy box, added the extension for a better look and more capacity. Paired with Thule Aero Edge crossbars for a lower profile look. Really happy with the outcome.


Review from a similar AeroBlade Edge Crossbar in Roof Rack

The Thule product is excellent. Unfortunately the person who assisted me over the phone said it would work with my 2019 VW Atlas with a sunroof and your website said as well. I cannot open the sunroof with the Thule Areoblade Edge. I called and sent an email, but etrailer said it was past the return ( it was winter when I bought them so we were not opening the sun roof)and referred to their fine print or some list of excuses why they would not help me get the right product. You most likely will not put this review up on your site I imagine.

If you are shopping for roof racks I would consult some other sources on fit for your vehicle. Thanks

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. I did reach out to Thule and confirmed that due to the low profile nature of the bars it may not be possible to open the sun roof while installed. If you wanted to open the sun roof on a 2019 Volkswagen Altas then part # TH711420

Review from a similar AeroBlade Edge Crossbar in Roof Rack

I don’t usually write reviews, but I felt particularly compelled to write one on this purchase. etrailer shipped my items quickly and had fair prices for the rack I wanted for my car. The packages arrived in two boxes. The items were floating freely- literally screws, wrenches, bars, instruction manuals etc were just thrown into the 2 boxes. It was a mess. I needed to check under the folded cardboard in the base of the box to find some of the pieces, which had settled under there. Not surprisingly, I was missing 3 screws and 1 plastic lock in the order. I needed to drive to [hardware store] mid assembly to get a screw match. Fortunately, I had ordered replacement metal locks anyway, so that wasn’t a big deal. In the end, I got the rack assembled, but it was a mess and I gotta say, that was the packaging you would expect from an amateur [resell site] order.

Customer Service will reach out to you.

etrailer provided great shipment/notification support. Little more than trivial to install Thule AeroBlade onto 2021 Mazda CX-9, but etrailer was great resource for how-to videos that were key to successful install.
Quality materials and convenient design. No significant noise noticeable from wind resistance when driving.


Review from a similar AeroBlade Edge Crossbar in Roof Rack

I bought Thule Aero roof racks as a Christmas gift so they have not yet been opened or installed. I’ve purchased the same racks for a different car and they are outstanding. Strong and silent!

I bought from etrailer for a few reasons: first, their selection of products from a wide variety of manufacturers, makes my choice, not of the location but of the product itself. I have various Thule and Yakima products and enjoy them all but it’s nice to have that choice. Second, the service by etrailer has been OUTSTANDING, even during COVID, supply chain delays and Christmas rush. Ordered these on-line and received them in about 4 days! Love it! Did the same thing last year with a bike rack.

I get promotional emails from etrailer periodically through the year and I don’t always look at them. I’m thinking, when would I need that again? Well, I needed it again and delivered- again.

The roof rack is great. It is what I expected from Thule. The customer service from etrailer is unmatched. I wish I could buy literally everything from them vs. other online retailers.


Review from a similar AeroBlade Edge Crossbar in Roof Rack

One Aeroblade came in a THULE package and was obviously brand néw. The other (rear) came loose in a large box, it was obvious that it had been used before. Thule makes a good product. The fact that I spent full price on a used component does not sit well with me.

Customer service will reach out to you.

Review from a similar AeroBlade Edge Crossbar in Roof Rack

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 !!!


Review from a similar AeroBlade Edge Crossbar in Roof Rack

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.

Purchased for an 8000 mile roadtrip last summer. A perfect fit for our Ford Flex. Easy to locate correct model on website and best price we could find. Install was a snap with good instructions.

I was looking for a low profile roof rack for my new Kia Telluride. These fit the bill perfectly. Look great, and are just high enough for the sunroof to still open. Easy install! Once out the door from eTrailer shipping was fast.

First of, 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.

  • Will Thule AeroBlade Edge Crossbars Interfere with Opening Glass Roof on a 2014 Ford Escape
    There is an easy way to figure out if a roof rack such as the Thule AeroBlade Edge system # TH7502-TH7503 will allow the glass roof to open on your 2014 Ford Escape. Have someone sit in the vehicle and open the glass roof. If any part of it at any time raises up higher than the tops of the side rails then it is possible that the crossbars of a roof rack would get in the way. This roof rack is easy to take off and put on or move forward or backward as needed so I am sure there is a configuration...

  • Which Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack Fits 2017 Ford Escape with Side Rails
    I checked with Thule and for your 2017 Ford Escape with factory raised roof side rails the roof rack you'd want is the part # TH7502-TH7503 you mentioned for silver or part # TH7502B-TH7503B for black. The difference between the various sizes is the length between the mounting hardware of the feet of the crossbars. You have to go with a set that matches the distance between the raised rails and the sets mentioned are the only ones that will fit properly.
