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.

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

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.

The roof cross bars were delivered quickly and fit my van like a glove. I'm only moderately handy, but I had no problem with the install. This is my second purchase from eTrailer, and the customer service is the best! 877290

First of all I have purchased many items from eTrailer and they are my favorite vendor for Auto accessories. Always first class customer service, very prompt and follow up, shipping....I absolutely Love this roof rack system. I purchased a Rhino from eTrailer and quickly found out it was the wrong item for my car. This one was $200- more, but well worth it, my son and I installed and assembled in less than 30 min. I do recommend at least two of the locks as it would be a sham if stollen with off vehicle with two plastic flat head bolts included. 861708

I ordered a roof rack for my car that was delivered -- on time as expected. Unfortunately, the shipment was missing a part needed to complete installation, but it turns out this is where etrailer really shines. When I wrote to them letting them know what happened, they were quickly responsive, communicated effectively, and delivered the replacement part to me sooner than they told me they could. This company under-promises and over-delivers -- just the kind of team you want to do business with. Thanks, etrailer team! 853671

Your website selected all the correct parts perfectly. The adapter kit and correct sized rails arrived and mounted in just a few minutes, no fuss, and worked exactly as I had hoped. The rails using the factory attach points were clearly designed with these OEM fittings in mind. The racks are easily removed with the included tools. The black anodized bars match the car and proved a solid mounting point for our luggage carrier. 2016 E250 Bluetec 4-Matic with Pano roof. 763582

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 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

Review from a similar 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

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

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!

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
