The AeroBlade Edge

This single Thule AeroBlade Edge crossbar lets you replace a damaged crossbar or add another crossbar to your existing roof rack to help distribute the weight of a load on your roof. The crossbar mounts to your vehicle's factory fixed mounting points or flush 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 crossbar couples with the unique WindDiffuser stripping to produce a bar that is so quiet you'll forget you even have it on your car. Many factory and aftermarket bars 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 the bar, near the front. When no accessories are mounted, the included WindDiffuser rubber stripping covers the T-slot. (You can also cut the stripping so that it can be placed in the slot around any carriers or accessories that are mounted.) The rubber stripping serves to keep dirt and grime out of the 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 crossbar. In fact, the AeroBlade Edge crossbar has been shown to produce 90 percent less sound energy than an elliptical Thule Aero bar, making it the quietest style of load bar 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 bar is 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 a crossbar that is 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 AeroBlade Edge mounts to your vehicle's roof with a Thule Podium foot pack (sold separately). Once you've installed the foot pack onto the crossbar legs, you must position the bar correctly on your roof. To center the bar, remove the covers from the legs and slide the crossbar in and out of the legs as needed until the bar is centerd on your roof. You will be able to determine if the bar is centered by matching up the numbers displayed on the integrated ruler at the top of each leg. When the numbers match - indicating correct positioning - simply tighten the adjustment screw inside each leg with the included tool and replace the leg 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 crossbar - add Thule One-Key System lock cylinders (sold separately) to the covers.

Review from a similar AeroBlade Edge in Roof Rack


Simple, easy install despite the Thule useless instructions. Nice clean look on the car. etrailer.com was great to work with, although they could cut down on their packaging. The shipping box was huge relative the Thule boxes it contained. I made use of it, and it got repurposed, so all is good. 652754

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.

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 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. 849355

Review from a similar AeroBlade Edge in Roof Rack


The roof racks are of great quality, what you would expect from Thule. The only disappointment was the directions. They were the picture only style with not a clear picture of all the parts, or how to attach them to the roof rails on the Lincoln. We are extremely handy people(we have built kitchens baths ect. )These racks were a good 2 hour project due to the poor directions, and then another hour to attach our Thule kayak racks. Hopefully the ski racks will go on easier!! All in all once installed they look good, have a clean line and don't detract from the car. 414768

Review from a similar AeroBlade Edge 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. 494795

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

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

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

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

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

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2020 Toyota RAV4 with Flush Mounted Side Rails and Fixed Mounting Points
    I have a solution for you, but Yakima does not offer a roof rack system for the 2020 Toyota RAV4 with flush side rails. For that reason you will need to go with a Thule roof rack system. You've got two options you can go with, one that provides you with less bar length but a more factory roof rack look, or one that has a bit longer bars that will extend outside the flush mounted rails and allow you some extra bar space. You mentioned a system that uses the Thule Wing Bar Evo, and that...

  • Can the T-Slot in Thule AeroBlade Crossbars be Used to Attach Any Accessory
    Thule, unlike Yakima, does not have a special device that attaches to the bars and accepts numerous accessories. Basically, it depends on what you want to fit to the AeroBlade bars. Thule makes several adapters, called Xadapt? where the question mark would be a number depending on which adapter it was. If you can tell me what you are wanting to attach to the AeroBlade bars I can determine what Xadapt you will need. If it is a non-Thule item then it may not fit. Or if you modified...

  • Thule Boxter Cargo Box Hardware Will Not Fit Around Factory Crossbars on a 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan
    The best way to use your Boxter cargo box on your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan is to use crossbars that are compatible with the box hardware. This doesn't have to be an expensive fix. You could use the SportRack roof rack # SR1098. They clamp on the factory side rails of the vehicle. Use them in place of the existing crossbars when you want to carry the box. The Xadapt 10 was a kit that allowed certain Thule cargo boxes to fit the T-slot in crossbars but it has been discontinued and it did...

    My technical contact at Thule told me there are three possible solutions to reduce the noise from your Thule AeroBlade Bars on your 2014 Volvo XC60. If your vehicle has a sunroof as noted in the picture, the crossbars need to be placed as far back from the sunroof as possible while staying with the minimum spread of 24 inches. Having crossbars directly over sunroofs often creates more noise. Check the rubber strip on the top of your crossbars. Sometimes there is an open space in...

    You are correct that the Thule Fit Kit 4002 foot packs should be placed at the indents on the flush rails on your 2013 Audi Q7. My technical contact at Thule informed me that sometimes the flush rails are a bit thicker at the front of the vehicle which does raise your rail a bit. She said it is typically less than an inch. She also told me that your vehicle has been tested with the AeroBlade Edge Crossbar # TH7602 and she believes your installation is correct. That system has been discontinued...

  • Can Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack for 2010 Volvo XC60 Be Used on 2018 Model
    The 2010 model used two different length crossbars, while the 2018 uses bars that are the same length. For your 2018 model, you'll need to replace the # TH7603 38-1/4 inch front crossbar with a # TH6702 35-1/4 inch crossbar. For 2018, the fit kit used to attach the crossbars to the vehicle is different. For your 2018 XC60, you'll need the # THKIT4058 fit kit. So, while you'll need to update one of the crossbars and the fit kit, you'll still save a considerable chunk of money versus...

    The Thule AeroBlade Edge you'd looked at, consisting of # TH7602 and # TH7603 will work great on your 2015 Murano with the glass roof. You'll also need the # THKIT3141 fit kit. For a kayak carrier, I really like the # TH848 HullaPort XT. The carrier has built in loading ramps that make getting the kayaks onto the carrier much easier. It can also be adjusted so 2 kayaks can be carried and includes the straps and bow/stern tie-downs, so it's a complete set-up. As with most vehicles...

This bike rack grabs the bikes by the front wheel which means you can keep the front wheel of the bike installed when transporting it. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.
