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.

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

Review from a similar Thule AeroBlade Edge in Roof Rack


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

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

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

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

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

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

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
