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.

Thule WingBar Evo SwingBlade

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 - TH711420

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.To begin, we'll just look at the shape of the bar. So you'll notice that it's ticker up front and a little bit thinner in the back. That's a tapered trail edge shape that creates an extremely aerodynamic system.

We also have the built in wind diffuser which disturbs airflow over the bars to dramatically reduce wind noise and vibration. So when the winds hits here at the front, it'll break apart and then we have the rubber stripping with triangle shape patterns, the full length of the stripping, and that really helps disturb or break the air over the bars to dramatically reduce wind noise and vibration as you head down the road.Also, just the aero style bar is aerodynamic, reduces drag to help maintain fuel efficiency. These are full length bars, so what the means is that once they're installed on Foot Packs, they extend a little bit past the Foot Packs. So full length crossbars maximize the amount of space for your carriers and for your accessories. You can get the most out of full length crossbars.

The bars will accommodate accessories that mount in the T-tracks or that clamp or strap around the bars. We have the dual rubber, quick access strips in the T-tracks that lets you easily install channel mount accessories, there's no trimming required, all you have to do is take the in-cap, and pivot the swing blade in-cap up and then you can slide your accessory into the track system. So we have two pieces of rubber right here that meet up.So as you place in your T-track, you can slide it anywhere along the bar that you need in any way that you want it to be. Really nice design, very easy to use, and again, the big feature of that is that you don't have to worry about trimming any of the strip. So again, dual rubber quick access strips in the T-slots lets you easily install your channel mounted accessories.On the bottom of the bar, we have bottom tracks that let you easily install the bars onto Thule Feet.

The slides right here, they actually have little measurements on them so the measurements slides on the bottom of the bars helps center the rack on your vehicle when installing and they double as an Underbar aerodynamic cover. It also comes with other track covers to fill any gap on the other side of your Foot Pack that you might have.We're looking at a super nice black powder coat finish, looks really good on these bars and protects the bar. They're made from heavy duty lightweight aluminum, very durable, completely rustproof, and then internally, I have a silver bar here just to show the internal structure. I just wanna point out that this uses what's called a BoxBeam when it comes to that internal structure, so the BoxBeam internal structure creates a very strong heavy duty dependable bar.Now, these bars when it comes to the measurements, they are three and one-eight inches wide, that's the measurement from the front to the back by one and one-eight inches tall, bottom to top. And they're available in a variety of lengths, you can view all the lengths available at

Weight capacity, 220 pounds, and Thule puts a limited lifetime warranty on this product.That's gonna 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

This will give you a really nice, aerodynamic roof rack that features a weight capacity of 165 pounds. The aluminum crossbars will match your Mazda's sleek exterior perfectly to provide a factory appearance

  • Weight Capacity of Thule Roof Racks
  • The Thule roof racks only have one weight capacity and that is 165 lbs which typically is higher than the roof capacity of the vehicle. You wouldn't get a higher capacity when using a roof tent. Especially when you consider that people would be moving around in the tent which would simulate the weight changes of a moving vehicle.

  • Best Crossbars for a 2013 Ford Flex with Raised Roof Side Rails
  • We have several roof rack options that will fit your 2013 Ford Flex with the factory side rails. I've attached a link to our entire selection for you to check out. My personal recommendation would be the Thule WingBar Evo system. For a complete setup you want the 53 inch WingBars, # TH711400 for silver or # TH711420 for black, and the Evo raised rail feet, # TH710401. Thule is one of the top aftermarket roof rack companies in the world and they make several OEM roof racks as well.

  • 2013 Ford Edge w/ Vista Roof Roof Rack Recommendation
  • For a roof rack that has been confirmed as a fit for your 2013 Ford Edge with the Vista roof the Thule Aeroblade rack part numbers # TH711420, # TH480R, and # THKIT1530 has been confirmed as a fit. The Thule rack does use the door clamps for installation, but due to the design of your roof this is the only way that is available that will work. If you contact Ford you can most likely have them install a set of raised rails on the vehicle so that you could go with the Aeroblade Edge

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2016 Ford Explorer and Weight Capacity with Moonroof
  • You are correct in your assumption. Since Ford limited your 2016 Ford Explorer's roof weight capacity to 45 lbs that means that regardless of what roof rack you install you still can only have 45 lbs of weight on it. So if you went with the Thule roof rack that consists of part numbers # TH711420, # TH460R, and # THKIT3151 you would only be able to carry 34 lbs of roof accessories since this roof rack will weigh 13 lbs.

  • Roof Rack Fit Recommendation for 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT with Panoramic Sunroof
  • There aren't a whole lot of options for a roof rack on your 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT with the panoramic glass roof but I was able to get a confirmed fit from Thule. You would need the fit kit part # THKIT1695, for crossbars the part # TH711420 and then the foot pack part # TH480R. We normally don't recommend opening any type of sun roof on a vehicle with a roof rack installed as the wind noise is pretty intense from the crossbars. Yes we do test fits at our location here in Wentzville,

  • Recommended Kayak Rack For 2014 Jeep Wrangler 2 Door
  • If your 2014 Jeep is a soft top, I recommend the Thule Evo Feet # TH710401 that clamp onto your roll bars and the # TH711420 Aero Crossbars. If your wrangler is a hard top, I recommend the Thule Rapid feet that connect to the rain gutters # TH300R along with the Aero Crossbars # TH711520. I recommend using the locks # TH450400 to secure the roof rack and then the Thule Top Deck # TH881 or the Thule Hull-A-Port # TH834 for a side loading J-style mount.

  • Are Thule AeroBlade or WingBar Evo Bars Compatible With Older Thule Hullavator?
  • The Thule AeroBlade bars are being discontinued, but if you already have them they will work with the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier and Lift Assist with Tie-Downs # TH898 (even if it is an older model). That is provided the bars are long enough. The Hullavator needs at least 4-8 inches of crossbar length beyond the feet of your roof rack to ensure clearance on the side of your vehicle when lowered. If you don't already have the crossbars, I recommend the new Thule WingBar Evo

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2017 Honda Odyssey with Naked Roof

The Thule Top Track # THTP42 component of this system is a universal track that will permanently install on almost any SUV, Minivan or camper. This will basically provide a factory-like track system that can then be used to install the foot pack and crossbars for the roof rack. With

  • Can I Use 53 inch Thule AeroBlade Crossbars on my 2017 Subaru Forester
  • To find out if you can use the 53"Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711420 with the Evo Foot Pack # TH710401 on your 2017 Subaru Forester, you will need to do some measuring. If the center to center distance of the side rails on your Forester's roof is no less than 35-3/4 inches, then the 53 inch bars will work for your application. If your measurement is less than that, then you will need to use the 47 inch Crossbars # TH711220. If you do not have factory installed rails on your Subaru

  • Comparing Thule AeroBlade Crossbars vs WingBar Evo Crossbars
  • Aside from a slight change in the appearance of the crossbar (the WingBar Evo has some boxed edges as opposed to the completely smooth front of the AeroBlade) the biggest differences are the rubber strip on top of the crossbar and the weight capacity. The older AeroBlade crossbars have a solid rubber strip that inserts into the top channel which would need to be cut for accessories to fit. Thule eliminated the need to cut the rubber strip on the WingBar Evo, like part # TH711420) by

Due to the design of your roof rack you will only be able to have a crossbar spread of 27 inches. But according to my contact at Thule you still will get the full capacity of the roof rack and can use long watersports carriers if needed.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Cargo Box for 2018 Audi A4 Allroad with Raised Rails

The feet on this system will clamp right onto the side rails on your vehicle. These particular bars feature dual rubber "QuickAccess" strips that do not require any trimming. Then, when selecting a roof box that will sit alongside a bike rack, I recommend going with a narrow option

This is an easy installation, but if you aren't comfortable doing it yourself, I recommend having a trusted mechanic install it.

  • Thule WingBar Roof Rack for a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • The recommended WingBar crossbars for your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee are the 53 inch bars, part # TH711420 in black or # TH711400 in silver. If the bars you have are a different length let me know because they still may work for you. Since you have the flush rails that are black with chrome and have tracks running inside them it means your Jeep has the E-Group package. To mount the AeroBlades onto your rails use the Rapid Podium foot pack, part # TH460R, along with the fit kit # THKIT3142.

  • Antenna Clearance When Transporting Stand-Up Paddleboards on 2013 Ford Escape or 2013 Toyota RAV4
  • When it comes to a stand-up paddle board carrier that will clear the antenna on a 2013 Ford Escape or a 2013 Toyota RAV4, I recommend taking a look at the Thule SUPDawg, part # Y04075. We installed this carrier on a Toyota 4Runner and as you can see in the attached picture, there is quite a bit of room between the roof and the paddle board so you shouldn't have any problem with antenna clearance.

  • Replacement AcuTight Tool for Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack Feet
  • It sounds like you are missing or otherwise in need of the Thule AcuTight tool, # 752-2352-002. You might be able to use an Allen wrench in a pinch but I recommend replacing the tool. 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
