Video Transcript for Thule WingBar Edge Crossbars Review

Hey everyone, it's Evangeline, and today, we're taking a look at the Thule WingBar Edge Crossbars. These are gonna be some heavy-duty crossbars that are also a little bit more low-profile, so we'll talk about that, those features, and how they work with the rest of the Thule roof rack systems. So there's a Thule WingBar Evo and there's a Thule WingBar Edge. So the main difference between the two is one gives you overhang and the other does not. So if you want a sleek, streamlined, and some people think factory look, that's where the Thule WingBar Edge can come in handy. If you want more crossbar space and you have the Evo clamps, that's when you would use the Thule WingBar Evo.

So they're very similar in shape, but very different in functionality. So there's a range of different crossbar sizes, so you can range from your smaller crossbars to your longer crossbars, and you can even have different sizes on your car. So for example, we have the 37 inch here, we have the 41 inch up front, and that's why it's very important to use our fit guide here at etrailer.com where we find the right fit for you and your car. So these are made of aluminum, they're very solid, and I know some crossbars, when they are made of thinner material, they tend to bow in the middle. This, I do not see that ever happening, but for your actual weight capacity, you are limited to what type of system you have on your car and not so much by the bars.

This is available in different colors, so you have black, which is what I have here, and we also have silver. So this has a black powder coat finish, so even as you scratch at it, when you get cargo on there, of course, in extreme situations you can scratch it up, but it should maintain its finish in most situations. If you do see scratches, I recommend going over it with a paint pen, so it maintains its corrosion resistance. It's shaped to be more aerodynamic, so it's tapered in the back and it's taller up front, so that way, it will help guide the wind up and over or around your bars. So this means, compared to your traditional round and square crossbars, definitely less noisy, less wind drag when you're going down on it, especially at highway speeds.

So these are what your crossbars look like when they're not on your car. So the WingBar Edge has a different design from the WingBar Evo, they're slightly different in terms of shape, and a quick look on the inside when you take out the weather strip, shows the little tab for your Edge towers. So when you get your crossbar, you're gonna get these weather strips, so these are gonna cover your T-track channel, but also, help move the air over. So you're gonna take them apart, and then you're just gonna push them into your crossbar, and this is gonna be the way that they're facing. So your weather stripping splits apart in the middle, so that you can slide your T-track accessories through it.

I personally think it's a little tricky to get it through the first part, but once it slides through, it does it very easily. The size of the WingBar is 3 inches and 1/8 inch wide and one inch tall. So most of your accessories will fit around this, just make sure for your older accessories, they may not be used to the modern aero design. So my thoughts on the Thule WingBar Edge Crossbars is, the first step, make sure you have the right system, if you use our fit guide, you'll find the right fit for you and the right kit all packed together. Also, with the Thule WingBar Edge, they are designed to be used with Edge products, so make sure whether it's the Edge raised rail, Edge clamp, Edge flush feet, those are the ones you use with this crossbar. So with all that being said, there's solid, they're sturdy, they are on the bit more premium side, so if you're a big fan of Thule and you like Thule products, definitely fits in there. If you're looking for alternatives, we also have alternatives here at etrailer that are solid choices. And that was a look at the Thule WingBar Edge Crossbars here at etrailer..

Niiiiiice! Is what we say when we see the car now. The roof rack is well built. Instructions were easy- the letter specification to tighten the rack were a bit much. We had to adjust based on how things looked and jived with the car. Some soft cushion edging would not flush over the roof indentation edge, so we had to re-loosen and tighten the rack few times until all settled well. Bottom line, we wanted a solid rack that did not have overhang, did what it is suppose to, was low profile, and make the car look hot- check!!!! We are very happy! Best part about the entire experience however is etrailer. I swear, one might never need customer service or any help with their purchase, until they do. And what a customer service it is. Wow. It’s worth returning to etrailer for more business, purely because you want this business to do well and to remain in business and to show them how much we appreciate their excellent customer service.

Love e trailer! So fast! Wish I could order Thule locks by number on their site.

For XXX bucks I thought it would include the keys. Not plastic plugs. Instructions say it should have key. They even talk about how to store the key. My advice to anyone is buy it directly from dealer.

It works very well

Initially I was worried that I good not get a good Roof Rack configuration to match my 2022 Kia Telluride. When I asked etrailer for some assistance on the configuration, Jon was quick to reply with an excellent solution. He definitely knew the products. Unfortunately, my initial shipment was damaged but Gwen and team quickly got me replacements in the mail. I have received and installed all components and couldn't be more satisfied.



by:

I received all the required parts in excellent condition. The installation went very smoothly as planned on my 2022 Subaru WRX!

Super fast shipping. Correct fit and quality product.

  • 2017 Audi Q7 Roof Rack and Roof Cargo Box Recommendation
    I have a roof rack solution that will work very well for your 2017 Audi Q7, but there are no Whispbar solutions I can provide. For a very similar roof rack that is one of the nicest options around the Thule part numbers # TH79FE and # TH29SC that you referenced would be a great option. For a cargo box the Thule XL part # TH6358B would be a great option too as it has 18 cubic feet of storage space and it has been confirmed as a fit too.

  • Roof Rack for a 2020 Audi Q7 with Factory Flush Side Rails
    The roof rack I recommend for a 2020 Audi Q7 with raised side rails is between Thule WingBar Edge Crossbar System part # TH55RE (Silver) or # TH79FE, part # TH29SC, and part # TH52RE. This uses aero shaped crossbars for reduced wind noise/drag, custom fit kits that attach to fixed points on the roof so you don't have to mess with tacky door clips, and molded rubber pads to protect the vehicle's finish. If you want to add locks you can use the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders part #...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Audi Q7 with Sunroof
    For your 2019 Audi Q7 the Thule WingBar Edge roof rack part numbers # TH79FE, # TH29SC, and # TH52RE will be your best low-profile solution. The flush bar style of racks will give you the lowest clearance for your garage door, and is compatible with all bike and ski/snowboard racks. The sunroof warning that Thule mentions for this rack is going to be the same for all roof racks. Basically all crossbar setups would potentially interfere but what's also worth noting is that all crossbars...

  • Quietest Thule Roof Rack For 2019 Ford Edge with Glass Roof
    The quietest Thule roof rack for your 2019 Ford Edge is the Wingbar Edge roof rack from part numbers # TH79FE, # TH79SC, and # TH145074. The reason this is true is because the bars sit a little lower than other options and also the bars do not extend out past the feet of the rack which also greatly reduces wind noise. So if you are looking for the quietest option you can get this would be it.

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2017 Audi Q7 To Fit Rhino Rack Master-Fit Rooftop Cargo Box
    The Rhino-Rack Zenith Master Fit Rooftop Cargo Box will fit crossbars up to 3-1/2 inches wide by 1-1/3 inches tall. If your 2017 Audi Q7 factory crossbars are not compatible, I recommend the Thule roof rack with the WingBar Edge # TH79FE, Feet # TH29SC and the Thule Fit Kit # TH52RE. This roof rack is a fit for your factory flush rails, has a sleek and clean flush design, and the crossbars will fit the Master-Fit Cargo Box.
