The AeroBlade Edge

Thule's AeroBlade Edge crossbars attach directly to your vehicle's fixed mounting points or flush, 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 AeroBlade Edge mounts to your vehicle's roof with a Thule Podium fit kit (sold separately). Once you've installed the fit kit 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 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.

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

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

Aesthetically, I prefer that the cross bars don't extend past the edge of the vehicle's roof, which these don't. They look great when installed and feel very solid. There is some side to side play to allow you to get it perfectly centered. Once you get it perfect, you tighten it down and the extra room is covered by the end caps. Not only do you then have a bar to mount a carrier on, but it also has a channel in the top for T-bolts. Very versatile system. 334778

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

First class customer service, will do business with etrailer again. Rack installed on my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee in about an hour. Now that I know what I'm doing, I can do it in 10 minutes.

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

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

Review from a similar Thule AeroBlade Edge in Roof Rack


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

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

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 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.

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.

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

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

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

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

The Thule rack system fit my Honda CRV factory rails perfectly. The installation instructions were complete and easy to follow (with cartoon drawings) and international symbolism. There is very little wind noise from the racks, with or without a cargo carrier installed. I think they are much prettier than the racks available from Honda, too. Highly recommended. 347393

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

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

Review from a similar Thule AeroBlade Edge in Roof Rack


The rails looks and functions great on my 16 Mini Countryman. However, when I drive over 35mph, there is a sharp hissing sound coming from the rails. these rails are supposed to be aerodynamically enough to eliminate sounds. I tried switching the front to rear and same issue. I went as far as taping any voids to see if that would help. Nothing works. 623122

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Ford Edge with Panoramic Sunroof
  • You are in luck, we have several roof racks that are compatible with your 2017 Ford Edge with the Panoramic Sunroof. If your Edge has a naked roof (no existing rails or crossbars), my personal favorite is the Yakima roof rack. This setup includes 2 of the 50" JetStream Crossbars, # Y00425, 4 BaseLine Towers, # Y00146, and 2 of each BaseClip Fit Kits # Y06102 & # Y06139. I've provided a photo that shows how the clamp-style attachments secure the bars to your roof. The JetStream bars...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe with Panoramic Glass Roof
  • I recommend Thule's AeroBlade Edge roof rack system for your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe with Panoramic Glass Roof. This rack is made of parts # TH7602B-TH7603B and # THKIT4093. I like this rack because it features the quieter aerodynamic type of crossbars that will make less wind noise at highway speed. These wing-like bars cut through the air better than all other shapes and they allow you to mount accessory carriers (for bikes, skis and kayaks) in either of two different ways. Compatible...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Lexus RX 450hL
  • I do have options for you depending on what you will be using the trailer hitch for but we do not have a trailer hitch which is listed as a fit for your 2018 Lexus RX 450hL as of November 2018. Therefore, I cannot confirm that the Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75896 will work for you. However, if you are wanting a trailer hitch for a bike rack then we do have trunk mounted bike rack options available for you like the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack part...

  • Will Thule Roof Rack Sit Above The Antenna Of A 2015 Nissan Murano With Flush Roof Rails?
  • The Thule roof rack for your 2015 Nissan Murano consists of the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711220, the Thule Podium Foot Pack for Aero Bars # TH460R, and the Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit for Podium-Style Foot Packs # THKIT3141. This roof rack may or may not clear the antenna on your vehicle depending on the height of your antenna. This roof rack will sit a little over 4 inches above the roof of your vehicle.

  • Roof Rack Fit for 2019 Lexus RX 450h with Panoramic Roof
  • The Thule AeroBlade Edge roof rack will fit your 2019 Lexus RX 450h with a panoramic roof although you are correct that Yakima does not have a roof rack which will fit. Thule only notes that you should not open, vent or retract the roof with the roof rack on. The AeroBlade Edge rack is available in Silver # TH7602-TH7603 or Black # TH7602B-TH7603B and will only require Fit Kit # THKIT4072 for installation, though Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450400 are recommended to secure...

  • Will Thule Roof Rack Fit 2015 Ford Edge with Panoramic Glass Roof
  • Thule, who is the roof rack industry leader, has test fit their roof racks on a 2015 Ford Edge with a panoramic roof just like yours and found that it fit and worked well. For that you'd want the part numbers # TH7602B-TH7603B and # THKIT4047. While we can't recommend going against the manufacturer of the vehicle when it comes to roof rack accessories as Ford is who will honor the warranty of the vehicle, I would be curious to see if the person you spoke with didn't misunderstand you and...

  • Recommended Thule Roof Rack For 2015 Nissan Murano
  • Yes. Thule does have a system that will work with your 2015 Nissan Murano with flush roof rails. I recommend the # TH7602B-TH7603B along with # THKIT3141. This will give you the Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack with the Aero crossbars that have the t-slots and they will mount to your flush roof rails with the fit kit I recommended. I also recommend using the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders - Qty 4 # TH450400, to secure your investment.

  • Can a Roof Rack for a 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Be Left Installed
  • Yes, you can leave a roof rack on your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe installed for as long as you like. However, I would only use touchless car washes with the rack installed as there is a possibility that a non-touchless car wash could potentially cause damage. In regards to the panoramic roof, so long as it does not extend up above the roof line you should be fine but please keep in mind this can be very noisy. For your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, I recommend using the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof...

  • Best Roof Rack and Cargo Basket for a 2018 Mercedes GLC 43 SUV or Coupe
  • Apparently there is both an SUV version and coupe version of the 2018 Mercedes GLC 43, which seems odd but ok. So I will provide recommendations for both. First, the SUV version. The roof rack that is going to compliment your GLC the most is the Thule AeroBlade Edge # TH7601B-TH7602B for black or # TH7601-TH7602 for silver. And for either one you would also need fit kit # THKIT4068. Then for a compatible basket I recommend the Thule Trail XT, # TH864XT. Since this basket is mostly aluminum...

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2016 Lincoln MKX With Panoramic View Moon Roof
  • When you say your 2016 Lincoln MKX does not have factory rails, I assume you mean it doesn't have raised rails. Most of these models have flush mounted rails that look like trim. If you have the flush rails, I have a system that will work. If you don't have the flush rails, then there is not a fit we can offer. For flush mounted rails, I recommend the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack - Black # TH7602B-TH7603B along with the Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit # THKIT4047. This will give you a...

  • The Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack part numbers # TH7602B-TH7603B and # THKIT4029 is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe with the glass panoramic roof and factory flush rails. Thule states that with this rack since it has such a low profile you will want to check to see if you have clearance to open the roof carefully by slowly opening it. The Aeroblade rack part numbers # TH711200, # TH460R, and # THKIT4029 on the other hand does not have this same recommendation so the glass...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2019 Nissan Murano
  • For your 2019 Nissan Murano I recommend the Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack part numbers # TH7602B-TH7603B and # THKIT3141. This roof rack is the quietest option we have for your vehicle due to the aerodynamic shape of the crossbars and the fact the bars do not stick out past the feet of the rack. For a kayak carrier I recommend the Thule Hullaport part # TH848 because it can fold down when not in use and if needed can also carry a second kayak.

  • Recommended Roof Rack Crossbars for 2016 Ford Edge with Flush-Mount Roof Side Rails

Aero-style bars are quieter at highway speeds but both types are fine for carrying a cargo load. You also have some choices in the length and color of crossbars you can install; all options are shown on the linked page. For a high-quality OEM-looking rack I suggest the Thule AeroBlade Edge system with black bars, consisting of parts...

Then all you will need is the fit kit, # THKIT4047, to attach it to your flush side rails. I have linked a video showing the features of this type of roof rack for you.

  • Thule has test fit their roof racks on the 2019 Nissan Murano and has a silver version of the Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack part numbers # TH7602-TH7603 and # THKIT3141 that is a confirmed fit. Thule states that you can't open the moon roof at all with the install of this rack but the rack is not a permanent install so it could be easily removed when not needed. The bars will create quite a bit of noise too so it wouldn't be pleasant even if opening the roof was okay.

Since there's not much you can do with just the front to back rails the racks we offer are for providing crossbar roof racks. This allows accessories like kayak carriers to install whereas rails are basically just the base for a crossbar kit to fit.

This roof rack has a 165-lb weight capacity but you need to make sure you do not exceed the roof weight capacity of your vehicle.

Your Edge will have the carrying capacity you need and still look great. I see you were checking out the Thule AeroBlade racks. These are my recommendation too. Such a clean-looking rack...

This allows the use of a Thule roof rack like the part # TH7602B-TH7603B which it sounds like you may already have. If you are looking for a fairing as well you'd need the part # TH8701 which is a confirmed fit and matches the bars. If you happen to have an older fairing there isn't a way to adapt it to the aero bars.
