Thule WingBar Evo Crossbar on Vehicle

TheThule WingBar Evo crossbars let you quickly and easily build a quiet, aerodynamic custom roof rack for your vehicle. These high-end bars look great on any vehicle, and they are perfect for those who want a quiet roof rack that can carry plenty of gear. The bars have dual rubber strips in the T-slots and pivoting endcaps that allow you to easily mount carriers and accessories. Each bar extends past the feet to maximize carrying capacity. The bars are constructed of aluminum with internal BoxBeam structures that make them extremely durable yet lightweight. The WingBars require a Thule foot pack (sold separately) to mount the rack to your roof. Some vehicles - such as those with a naked roof - may also require a vehicle-specific fit kit (sold separately).

Aerodynamic TrailEdge Design with WindDiffuser Strips

Thule WingBar Evo WindDiffuser Design

The WingBar's tapered TrailEdge shape helps reduce wind drag by separating the airflow over and under the bars so you won't see a reduction in your vehicle's gas mileage. This also dramatically reduces wind noise and vibration - even at highway speeds - and eliminates the need to add a fairing to your roof rack.

The rubber WindDiffuser strips in the T-slots have V-shaped ridges that direct air over the tops of the bars. This reduction in wind drag also helps maintain fuel efficiency and significantly reduces wind noise.

Channel-Mounted and Clamp-On Accessories

Thule WingBar Evo SwingBlade

WingBar Evo crossbars have built-in T-slots with rubber strips that simply press into place. This makes them easier to install when compared with strips that have to be threaded into the channel from the end of the bar. The dual-strip design also makes accessories easier to install in the T-slots when compared with strips that have to be trimmed. Simply lift the SwingBlade endcaps open, slide your gear into the channel, and close the endcaps. These rubber strips also seal the gaps left by your accessories so that water and dirt don't get into the T-slots.

You can also attach most universal, clamp-on accessories and carriers to the bars.

Strong, Durable Construction

Thule WingBar Evo Crossbar Construction

The WingBar Evo crossbars are made of anodized aluminum with internal BoxBeam structures. These structures strengthen the bars without significantly increasing their weight. Additionally, because the bars are aluminum, they won't rust or corrode so you can leave them on your roof year-round.

Hassle-Free Installation

Thule WingBar Evo Crossbar Installation

Installation of the WingBar Evo crossbars is quick and easy, and you don't have to do any drilling or vehicle modification. The bars have bottom channels that accommodate your Thule feet. SmartSlide sliding scales in the bottom channels let you place the feet in the proper location using the vehicle-specific measurements provided in your fit kit manual. Simply slide each scale to the measurement indicated in the fit kit manual, then slide the foot into the channel until it rests against the scale.

For applications that don't require specific measurements provided in a fit kit manual - such as a raised rail - you can center the rack after you place it on your vehicle using a tape measure. Then slide the scales against the feet to fill in the gaps in the channel.

Insert the included rubber filler strips into each channel between the outer edges of the feet and the ends of the bars, and trim the excess. These rubber strips, coupled with the sliding scales, help to keep dirt and water out of the bottom channels and help to reduce whistling.

Thule WingBar Evo Crossbar Torque Tool

To complete installation on your roof simply tighten a single screw inside each foot using the torque tool included with the foot pack. This single attachment point enables you to secure the crossbar to the foot and the foot to your roof simultaneously.

Video Transcript for Review of Thule Roof Rack - Crossbars - TH711400

Today we're taking a look at the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars. Now these bars are quiet, low profile crossbars that let you build an aftermarket roof rack for your vehicle. The crossbars work with Thule foot packs and fit kits to create a roof rack for mounting various accessories to the roof of your vehicle. Now these bars have some really great features that make them premium bars. For instance, they feature the tapered TrailEdge shape, so a little bit thick up front, a little bit more narrow or thinner at the back. The TrailEdge shape creates an extremely aerodynamic system.

They also have the builtin wind diffuser. You can see that rubber stripping here.Now there's a couple things about this rubber stripping that really breaks the wind or disturbs airflow over the bars to dramatically reduce wind noise and vibration. We have the stripping itself which create a break point in the bar. You can see there at the top of the bar how that rubber sticks up a little bit. Also, they have these little triangle patterns, the full length of that rubber stripping.

That's really going to help disturb the airflow as it breaks over the bar, which again dramatically reduces wind noise and vibration as you head down the road. Also, it's an aero-style bar, which again it's very aerodynamic, and that's going to help maintain fuel efficiency.These are known to be full length crossbars. That means that they will extend pass whatever foot packs you have them mounted on. The full length crossbars really help maximize the amount of space for your carriers and accessories. Now these bars will accommodate accessories that mount in the T-track or that clamp around the bars.

We have the dual rubber, QuickAccess strips in T-tracks. This design lets you easily install channel mounted accessories. There's no trimming required. All you have to do is pivot the SwingBlade endcaps up and then slide your accessory in here. You can see there how that's a break design.

It's two pieces of rubber that meet up. As you place your T-track in there, you can just slide it in where it needs to be on your bar. Very simple, very easy design.On the bottom of the bar on each side we have the bottom track that lets you easily install the bars onto Thule feet. The slide right here, this is a measurement slide that helps center the rack on your vehicle when installing and doubles as an underbar aerodynamic cover. It also comes with other track covers to fill any gaps you may have on the other side of the foot pack once installed. We're looking at a really nice heavy duty, light weight, aluminum construction, durable and rust-proof. Now, internally I have another bar here just to show you. Internally we have the BoxBeam internal structure. This creates a very, very heavy duty, durable, strong bar.Now, when it comes to the dimensions of the bar, each one measures three and one-eighth inches wide. That's basically your front to back measurement. Bottom to top is one and one-eighth inches tall. Then, these bars are available in a variety of lengths. You can view all the lengths available at each Weight capacity is 220 pounds, and Thule covers this product with a limited lifetime warranty. That's going to do it for today's look at the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars.

I purchased these with the aeroblade bars for my ford flex. Installation was pretty straight forward and everything was pretty snug when I was done. The built in torque wrench is pretty handy and a nice touch from thule. Thule products are pricey but built pretty well and I think are worth the money. 96155

2005 Ford Focus

I ordered a Thule roof rack fit kit, Aeroblade along w/ a Curt roof rack for my 2005 Ford Focus. We were a family of 5; and now we are 4, we had always traveled in our larger Toyota 4-Runner, which had enough room for everyone and their luggage. Now that we sold the 4-Runner and have only the smaller gas saver, it presented a problem for travel. I ordered the roof rack for our trip to Gatlinburg, TN. It worked fantastic. The shipping was fast and made it to us in time for us to install it. We were able to install it in about 20 minutes after watching the installation videos on It was able to accommodate all 4 of our large suitcases and freed up leg room to provide a more comfortable trip. The Aeroblades were very quite. We are very pleased with our purchase and would recommend this to anyone who asks. 333722

I have had this Thule set up on my 14 Elantra GT with a panoramic roof for one year and all I can say is bravo! It stays on during the carwash and I have zero wear and tear on it. I have a 2 year old and a newborn, It makes road trips possible with luggage. I have a feeling I will still have these when I need to move my kids to college. has been great! I will definitely make this my go to site for this category of purchase. 523343

Thank you for following up Rachael. We love these products. We are using them this Memorial Weekend. Makes it so easy to carry both my kayak and my wifes SUP. There is room for both and they are easy to secure. When we go camping with our travel trailer it leaves room for other things to be stored in the bed of my pickup. Thanks again and God bless!

2014 Volvo S60

We ordered the entire Thule AeroBlade system a year ago for our 2014 Volvo S60. We ordered the system to use with the Yakima FrontLoader Upright Bike Mount, knowing we wanted a rack that didn't require removing a wheel every time we used it. At the time of ordering, Yakima didn't offer an adequate bar system for our vehicle, so we went with the Thule AeroBlades after doing some research on compatibility. After a year, we are very happy with our Thule system. Set-up was fairly easy for two people (I wouldn't recommend doing it alone) and all directions were clear. We chose the AeroBlades over cheaper systems because of the potential for noise reduction, as well as durability. We're very happy with our purchase and have had no issues so far. It has remained securely fastened to the Yakima rack. Two negatives, which others may have mentioned: the rack interferes with our satellite radio system at times and the rack does create some wind noise when we open our sun roof. Otherwise, the noise is not an issue when it is closed. Overall, we would completely purchase it again, particularly for use with the Yakima FrontLoader. 497353

2013 Ford Edge

The transverse foot is the most complicated, and most important, part of the rack system, but was simple to assemble and install. I spent about an hour with assembly and installation of the complete system, and I wasn't in any hurry. The feet provide a solid interface between my car and the rack, and the rubber pads protect the car finish. The AccuTight tool is especially helpful because it provides a torque indicator to ensure proper tightening of the foot bracket. The tool remains inserted in the foot after installation, with a tool for each side of the vehicle. The feet contribute to the overall beauty of the rack system by their smooth contour. 272652

It’s OK, The product is well designed and does the job, but looks a bit clunky on our all-black Jeep Grand Cherokee. This retro-fit option does not have a sleek, streamlined appearance like a factory install. If you’re going for a sporty look, then you will probably like this product. 590120

The whole process of ordering a roof rack for my new car was simple. Just needed to decide which bars I wanted to buy, all the fitting and sizing was taken care of by the website. The package arrived on time. I spent maybe 2 hours puzzling through the directions, assembling the roof rack and attaching it to my car. By going slowly and rereading the directions numerous times, I think it got it right the first time. It was used to carry a canoe yesterday and did everything it was supposed to do. Completely adequate! 508212

by: Tom04/27/2018

Sturdy, nice looking, easy to install and remove, has not marked or damaged the car in any way so far. I use the rack for carrying a large, heavy, aluminum canoe which it holds securely. My only concern is that the rubber wear strips got a bit torn up from moving the canoe around on them as I was centering it. Also the assembly instructions could be much clearer, I ended up doing quite a bit of trial and error. 501444

This review really applies to the whole package not just this component. Well made excellent quality product. Racks are very solid and fit my application perfectly (2016 Ram 1500). Installation wasn't hard and the directions reasonably easy to follow. However some of the installation dimensions appear to be off. Price seems competitive with other brands, however it seems like a lot of money for what you get. 333678

  • A roof rack is going to be your best option for a 2017 Honda Civic Sport Hatchback as long as you have a 4 door. Roof racks will cause drag which will always impact your gas mileage. And, like you said, getting something on a roof is more difficult than the trunk, but a hitch will not work with the center exhaust and a trunk rack is going to have issues with with the top spoiler. The most aerodynamic roof rack to fit the Civic is the Thule WingBar Evo that consists of the load bars

  • Thule AeroBlade Roof Racks for a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude with Raised Rails
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule who verified that they have not run into any problems with fitting one of their roof racks to a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude. The problem may be as simple as if you don't have the E Group Package and he was trying to fit a roof rack that is only compatible with the E Group Package. If your raised rails have the chrome finish like in the picture that I attached then you have the E Group Package. If your rails are black then you don't have the

  • How Does Rubber Strip in Thule WingBar Crossbars Accommodate Accessories that Use T-Slot
  • Take a look at the picture I attached. It shows how the QuickAccess strips in the WingBars, like part # TH711400, is actually made of two pieces with a gap down the middle. You can see the person's finger going between the two pieces. When mounting a roof accessory into the T-slots the bolt goes between the two pieces leaving everything in place. There's no need to remove the QuickAccess strip and no need to do any cutting. Also, when you remove the accessory the strips will still

  • How to Reduce Noise from Thule WingBars on 2014 Mercedes GLK350
  • A front crossbar that is 56 inches from the hatch should not be too far. To minimize noise, it is advised that you position the crossbars as far to the rear of the roof line as possible. Also make sure the crossbars are separated by a minimum of 24 inches. You will want to check to make sure the rubber stripping is snug (no gaps) in the T-slot and that the endcaps are snug. On the underside of the bar make sure you use rubber stripping to fill in any exposed gaps and that that stripping

  • Thule Roof Rack For A 2013 Honda Accord
  • Manufacturers like Thule make many roof racks for many different vehicles. Although in most cases the load bars and feet are the same from one make of vehicle to another, the vehicle specific hardware kits are different. It is easier for the manufactures to offer the bars, feet and hardware kits separately than to make kits for specific make an model vehicles. I recommend for your Honda Accord the Thule WingBar Roof Rack # TH711400, # TH480R, and # THKIT1720 is the roof rack . The WingBars

  • Thule Roof Rack System Placement on 2012 Honda Pilot
  • When installed on the 2012 Honda Pilot, the Thule roof rack would install so that the front edge of the front crossbar foot is 10-1/4 inches rearward of the top of the front windshield trim. Once installed, the rear crossbar is installed so that the center of the front crossbar and the center of the rear is 29-1/2 inches apart. Thule has determined that this placement uses the strongest portion of the vehicle roof, thus maximizing the load bearing capability of the crossbars, as well

  • Replacement AcuTight Tool for Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack Feet

I do not recommend using any other tool for installation though because you could easily over-tighten the screws. The AcuTight tool has a little built-in torque indicator to let you know you have it at the right tightness.

  • Thule Square Crossbar is Stuck on Rapid Traverse Foot
  • Using the integrated tool inside one of the feet you will loosen the nut and that should loosen the grip on the bars. If it is seized on there then there is likely some corrosion inside. You will need to take the end caps off of the bars and spray some WD40 inside. Let it soak for about 15 minutes and then try again. Repeat as needed!

  • Will Thule WingBar Roof Rack Fit a 2015 Volkswagen GTI with Sunroof
  • A sunroof would not be a problem for Thule Rapid Traverse foot pack # TH480R because the feet rest at the outer edges of the roof. You will also need WingBars # TH711400 and fit kit # THKIT1710. If you prefer the WingBars in black use # TH711420 instead. It is not recommended to open the sunroof with a roof rack installed. The bars could be in the way and, even though the AeroBlade bars are quiet it would probably be louder than you'd like if you were able to open the sunroof.

  • Can Crossbars for a Thule Roof Rack be Spaced Further Apart on a 2012 Honda CR-V
  • The crossbar spread is 27-1/2 inches for the Thule AeroBlade system on a 2012 Honda CR-V. This is set by where the feet need to install on the roof. The specific locations are chosen because they are the most structurally sound. The fit kit is then made to fit the specific contours of the roof in those locations. Moving the crossbars further apart will lead to damage to the roof and a lower capacity. For a wider bar spread the Yakima system has a spread of 32 inches. It is made up of
