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 to mount the rack to your roof. Some vehicles - such as those with a naked roof - may also require a vehicle-specific fit kit .


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 Thule AeroBlade Traverse Roof Rack Installation - 2014 Chevrolet Malibu

Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System with the 53-inch Aero blades, using part numbers THARB53, TH480R and THKIT1684. With our roof rack assembled according to the manufacturers instructions we'll begin by opening our front doors and grabbing the front half of our rack. We'll place it onto the front half of our roof line then grab our tape measure. Per Thule's fit guide, we're going to measure 9 1/2 inches from the leading edge of the roof line to the leading edge of our foot pack. We'll do this measurement on both sides to be sure that we have our feet in line with each other. With both feet in the correct position, we'll now tighten from side to side, a little bit at a time, until we have this half of our rack secured to our vehicle. With the front secure, we'll close the front doors, open our rear doors and grab the rear half of our rack. We'll place it onto the rear part of our roof line.

The measurement we're going to do here is 25 5/8. We'll do it from the center of the front foot pack to the center of the rear foot pack. Again, we're going to take this measurement on both sides to be sure we have our feet in line with each other and also that our bars are parallel. Once we have our feet in the correct position, we'll simply follow the same tightening process that we used for the front. Once we have it secure, we'll shut our rear doors, we're ready to start attaching some gear and that will complete today's test fit of the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System using part numbers THARB53, TH480R and THKIT1684, on our 2014 Chevrolet Malibu. .

The etrailer team is the best! You never really know the quality of the people you buy from - until something goes wrong. There was a part missing for my roof rack. When I called customer support, they helped me identify the missing piece and then expedited delivery. This kept things on track for getting the roof rack installed. I am so grateful for the heartfelt service and the whole team went above and beyond. Thank you! 670527

Assembled and functioned just as the instruction said it would. I had absolutely no problem installing and using these rack bars on my Ford Edge. They have nor shifted and have held my equipment perfectly. Would certainly recommend them. Purchasing and getting additional from eTrailer was also excellent. 667797

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

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 etrailer.com. 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

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

The whole experience was freakin awesome. * Ordered on-line, delivered when promised, all packages were in excellent condition, and all parts were accounted for - no shortages, THANK YOU! * The Thule roof rack design, quality of materials, comprehensive instructions were really impressive. Everything went together without a hitch and really looks good installed. * We plan on carrying our 12 1/2' SUP's on the roof rack when we head out to the lakes. * It saves us time as our SUP's are inflatable, however it takes a bit of time to pump them up once we get there. Now it's just loosen them up and we're ready to go. Great job etrailer, I would definitely buy more products from your organization!! 672688

I chose the payment option and although my payment wasn’t due yet, paying it was easy (received the text from etrailer with link that led me to my account) For time user for etrailer.com and I will be back and highly recommend.... especially for those who aren’t very car savvy, selecting the correct part was very easy and clear. 480400

Ford Flex

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

2018 Toyota Prius

Customer Service at etrailer is par none, both before the sale and after. I had an unpleasant experience elsewhere buying and installing a roof rack for my old Prius. After a few days of frustrations, I sent it back to that old online store. This time, I contacted etrailer to see what ALL I needed to install a rack on my new 2018 Honda CRV. They sent me the part numbers and a link to purchase. Viola! After they arrived, I had difficulty with one of the parts (at 69 yo my hands are not too strong or flexible) and contacted etrailer. They sent pictures and more thorough instructions on installing the rubber strip. Another VIOLA! I'm so very happy with my total experience at etrailer. Customer Service, truly, is not better any where else I have made online or brick-n-mortar purchases. 642340

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Got a 2020 Grand Cherokee with the black metal roof side rails. I had planned on using the 60" Aerobars with the 460R pedestals, but oddly the bar didn't have long enough mounting points. So after talking with these folks, I opted for the 480R instead. While they 'technically' worked, the rack sat way in front of the factory rails. I did a LOT of talking with Thule and others and finally opted to get the 69" Probars. They work with the 460R pedestals, fit into the factory side rails and while I did have to get them cut down to 60", have enough room for everything I need to mount. So, my only compliant is that both Thule and etrailer don't seem to have the Probars listed as an option for the Grand Cherokee. They are the best option, especially if you have a Hullivator. And they look great! 744654

2017 Toyota Prius

The installation directions & online video by etrailer were invaluable, both clear and concise. Along with the Thule fit kit designed specifically for my 2017 Prius & the Thule crossbars, these "feet" more than securely attached the rack to the roof of my vehicle. Plus they are very easy to remove. Very ingenious system (and an improvement over my old 20-year-old Thule roof rack, which although aging, still works great on our other vehicle). I do recommend purchasing locks (sold separately). Also, I did need to contact etrailer customer service on a matter unrelated to this particular part, and they replied promptly, very courteous & helpful. 735074

  • For your 2018 Ford Explorer Thule has confirmed the fit of their Aeroblade roof rack part numbers # TH711420, # TH460R, and # THKIT3151. This rack actually attaches to factory fixed mounting points that are present on the roof of your vehicle. On the insides of the roof rails there are two screws that you'll remove and install the feet of this rack to. Check out the picture I took from the install instructions attached as well as the install video below for more info.

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Subaru Crosstrek
  • Thule has actually completely redesigned their roof rack since the Aeroblade Edge style racks like what you mentioned. Now the aero style roof rack they have is the WingBar Evo, which for your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek you'd want the part numbers # TH711420 and # TH710401 and you'd be set. Instead of using a rubber strap these use a claw that tightens to the side rails of your vehicle so you wouldn't have to worry about them falling apart over time.

  • Can 53" Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars be Used for a Roof Rack on a 2019 Honda CR-V
  • There is a chance that the 53" Black # TH711420 or Silver # TH711400 WingBar Evo Crossbars will fit on your 2019 Honda CR-V but since the WingBar Evo crossbars have limited mounting space on the bottom side (see attached) it is hard to say if the 6" longer bars will fit. If you are really wanting the WingBar Evo system then I recommend using the 47" Black # TH711220 or Silver # TH711200 Crossbars with the Podium Feet # TH460R and the Fit Kit # THKIT3166.

  • 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.

I attached a picture of the rack installed as well as a review video of the install process as well. This rack uses 47 inch long bars. A 53 inch bar like you mentioned would be too long.

If you were instead referring to an actual bike rack then some of them do come with locks for the bike or hitch and some do not.

  • Recommended Thule Roof Rack And Cargo Box For 2015 Mazda CX-5
  • For your 2015 Mazda CX-5, I recommend the Thule WingBar Evo - Aluminum - 53" - Qty 2 # TH711420 along with the Thule Evo Roof Mounted Railing Foot Pack # TH710401. To secure the roof rack to your rails, I recommend the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders - Qty 4 # TH450400. This will give you a crossbar spread of 32 inches which will be compatible with the Thule Force Large XT- 16 cu ft - AeroSkin Black # TH6357B you mentioned. These are great products that will work very well together

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Ford Taurus X with Raised Rails
  • The Thule Roof Rack you referenced that consists of part numbers # TH711420 and # TH710401 has been confirmed to fit your 2008 Ford Taurus X. 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.

  • 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

  • How Tight do the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof-Rack Feet Need to be
  • There is not a torque spec for the mounting clamps on the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack part # TH480R. The foot pack comes with an AcuTight tensioning tool which will be used to secure the feet onto the roof. The feet will need to be tight so they don't move but not much more than this. I have attached a review video which shows the feet being tighten for you as well.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2018 Jeep Compass and 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Both with Flush Rails
  • For your 2018 Jeep Compass, you will use the crossbars # TH711220, legs # TH480R , and fit kit # THKIT3164. You will also need locks # TH450400. For your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will use crossbars # TH711520, the same legs # TH480R and locks # TH450400, but different fit kit # THKIT1656. You can use the same crossbars if you don't mind the longer crossbars on your Compass, but the fit kit will not be compatible between vehicles. You will need the custom fit for each one.

  • Fit Kit Needed for Thule Square Bar Roof Rack on a 2015 Lexus CT 200h
  • If you already have the 47" Thule SquareBars # TH712200 then the only other parts you need to complete the roof rack for your 2015 Lexus CT 200h are the Traverse Foot Pack # TH480R and the Fit Kit # THKIT1636. Since your CT 200h doesn't have pre-installed fixpoints for a roof rack you actually need to use the Thule Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack # TH480R. The Thule Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack # TH460 is designed to work with vehicles that have the pre-installed fixpoints so it won't

  • Parts Needed to Install Thule Aeroblade Roof Rack on 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Thule does offer an Aeroblade roof rack that fits your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the all black flush roof rails, but they recommend using 60 inch bars like the part # THARB60 so your 53 inch bars may not be long enough. All of the components needed to install a Thule rack on your vehicle are # TH711520, # TH480R, and # THKIT1656. If you were inclined you could go with just the feet and fit kit for now to see if the bars you have will work, and if not then order the 60 inch bars.

  • What is Recommended Square Bar Length for Thule Roof Rack on 2017 Chevy Colorado
  • Thule changed their square crossbar design a while back and when they did this some of the recommended bar lengths changed.

Currently the new bar design uses the longer 53 inch crossbar setup with part numbers # TH712400, # TH480R, and # THKIT1714.

  • What is the Difference Between the Thule Traverse 480 and Rapid Travers 480R?
  • The Thule Traverse 480 has been discontinued and is only compatible with square load bars which are also discontinued. The Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack # TH480R are compatible with the Aero Style bars like the AeroBlade or WingBar Evo, the ProBar HD bars, and the SquareBar that has a slot on the underside. I've linked the page to all these crossbar options to assist. The ProBar # TH713700 and # TH713600 are the only crossbars that can be cut to custom lengths like the older square

  • Recommended Roof Rack/Carrier Option for 2 Kayaks on 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • First, let's start with the kayak carrier. A kayak carrier system like # S512 used with the # RRS512X would allow you to carry two kayaks, while not using a lot of space on the roof. You'll next need to choose a roof rack to provide an attachment point for the kayak carrier. The roof rack solution you'd use will depend on whether your Silverado 3500 is a regular or a crew-cab model. For a crew-cab, I'd recommend an Vortex Aero rack from Rhino-Rack which is the most budget friendly

  • Replacement Foot for Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack 480R

  • 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.

  • Best Value Roof Rack for 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • For your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude there typically are not factory raised rails. Those models come either without rails or with flush mounted rails. If those rails have a chrome finish and a slot in the top then you have the e-group package and I recommend the Rola # 59966 for an economical option that will work very well. If those rails do not have the slot in the top, then you will use the Thule SquareBar Load Bars # TH712500, Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack # TH480R, and Fit

  • 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

Both racks provide a maximum load capacity of 165-lbs and I suggest a review of your owner's manual to confirm that the car's roof

  • What is the Difference Between Ordering the Thule Traverse as a Set of 4 or Individually
  • If you are looking to get a set of 4 of the Rapid Traverse feet you would want to order the part # TH480R as it comes with the T-wrenches needed to install the feet. If you ordered the feet individually with part # 7522249001 you would not get the wrench required. You would also need the part # 752-2352-002 in that case.

  • Troubleshooting Tightening Bolt Coming All The Way Out of Thule Rapid Traverse Foot
  • I reached out to my contact at Thule and she said there's not really a trick to getting the tightening screw back into place on your Rapid Traverse Foot. If it's not threading in there's likely an issue inside the foot that would require a full replacement. Just the tightening bolt isn't available as a separate part, although the bolt itself likely isn't the problem. You can replace a single foot with the part # 7522249001, which will include everything you need.
