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.


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 WingBar Evo Crossbars Review

Hey guys. Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Evo Wingbar roof rack system. This system is specifically designed to fit your factory raised rails on your vehicle. I've got it in place just to give you a good idea of what it looks like. With this in place, it's going to allow you to carry roof mount accessories, things like bike racks, kayak carriers, cargo boxes and much more.Let's start by taking a look at the Thule Wingbar itself. It's made out of a lightweight aluminum.

You can pick it up in either black or silver with a powder coat finish. Right away, we don't have to worry about any rust or corrosion. We can leave it on our roof year round.We'll take off the end cap here and look at it's internal construction. The high beams here are going to give it strength and durability. A lot of people when they think of aluminum, they think that it's too fragile, or in this case, they maybe worry about it being able to crush.

With the high beams in place, that's going to prevent that from happening, all in all giving us a weight capacity of 220 pounds. Now with the end cap removed, I also like to talk about the channel up top here. This is out T-slot, so not only are we going to be able to carry those standard clamp on accessories, we'll be able to use that T-slot as well.Now the nice thing about the rubber strip here is that it's split right down the middle, so we don't have to remove it or trim it around those accessories. We can just take that T, slide it in to our desired location and we've got a nice clean look and again, we didn't have to remove that rubber strip.Now if we're using those T-slot accessories, we don't have to completely remove that end cap, we can just turn it to the side and we have access to it there.To fit your specific vehicle, you'll be given a recommended wingbar length. Therefore allowing you to carry those roof mount accessories, but that recommended length may not be long enough.

You may want to consider upgrading that length to carry more accessories. Depending on your vehicle, you may be able to do that. This vehicle's recommended bar length is 47 inches. Lets take a look at the other lengths. Here I've got the black and silver wingbar set up so you can see what they both look like.

On either end we've got the 43 inch, working towards the center, the 47 inch, the 53 inch and the 60 inch. As you can see with that 60 inch, we're going to be able to carry a lot more accessories than we would with the 43 inch. Keep in mind though, it could hang off of your vehicle quite a bit.As you see, these wingbars are a lot more aerodynamic than your traditional round or square bars. They're going to help eliminate some of that drag or wind noise that we experience when we're heading down the road.Now each of the wingbars are 3-1/8 of an inch wide and an inch tall. If you're using those clamp on accessories, be sure that those will work with those dimensions. The T-slot dimensions are 3/4 of an inch wide and 1/8 inch tall. Again, if you're using T-slot accessories, be sure that, that T-bolt or that T-nut will slide into that channel.Now, let's move on to the Thule Evo feet. In the kit, you're going to get a quantity of four and yes, I did mention they're designed to fit your factory raised rails. However, please note that they are a universal fit, so they may fit your raised rails differently.Now the feet themselves are strong and durable, when they're all tightened down, you're not going to have to worry about any movement. As you can see, I'm shaking the entire vehicle here and the plastic is not flexing and it's not shifting from side to side. Now, what's nice about these feet, is underneath our little door here, we'll unlock it, press in on the button underneath to take it off. It hides our tightening bolt. This is going to prevent the elements from getting to it. It's going to deter theft and it's also going to prevent someone from tampering with it.The bolt here is what holds our wingbar to our foot and clamps that foot around your raised rails. Now, it also includes the tool to do so. What's unique about this tool is, you hear an audible click when it's properly torqued down. This is going to prevent you from over tightening it or prevent you from not tightening it all the way. When it's all said and done, and everything's tightened up, the door goes back on, listen for the click and we can lock it up. Now, you can either use a flat head screwdriver or a coin to lock that.Now, if you'd like to upgrade to some metal locking cores, you can pick up four part number TH544, the plastic lock core comes out, the metal ones go in and they're all same key that way one key works with all the feet.Now you know how they fit, but what I'd like to mention and point out is that the clamps have an interior rubber lining, so when they're clamped around that raised rail, they won't cause any harm, that way if you want to take them off sometime, they won't leave any abrasions or any scratches.Once the roof rack system's installed, you're ready to load up some accessories and hit the road, but that's going to complete our look at the Thule Evo Wingbar roof rack system.

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

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

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!

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

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

Thule is a top grade product line. This package ( 2013 GMC Sierra SLX 3500) for the rack feet, installation kit, locks and the longest cross bars available (65 inches) arrived in two days in nice packaging. I found the instructions lacking in clarity and detail both descriptive and picture-wise.

As far as the product is concerned it works and looks good. I do not understand where they get their x and y dimensions from on the 1724 kit. That part was a pain. You get all set up and the distance comes up short. This was on a 2017 Acura RDX. 696701


Comments

The # THKIT1724
Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit for Traverse Foot Packs - 1724
$119.95
is confirmed as a fit for your 2017 Acura RDX. The X measurement is the side to side measurement of the front crossbar tower placement is 44-1/8 inches. The Y measurement is 42-1/2 inches side to side for the rear crossbar. The front crossbar should be positioned 13 inches from the windshield seam, the rear crossbar should be 24 3/4 inches back from the front crossbar.

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

The rack has been on my car almost continuously for a year now. It has carried dozens of boats tofrom put-ins and take-outs. It is a hassle to remove it to wash the roof of my car so Ive taken to just leaving it on all the time. THe rubber wear strips are pretty torn up now but that isnt an issue for me. It holds boats securely on my car.

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

  • Can 60 Thule AeroBlade Bars be Used on a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the E Group Package
  • To determine if you can use the 60" WingBar Evo Crossbars, part # TH711500 or part # TH711520, will fit on your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee you first need to measure the center to center distance between the mounting holes where the Podium feet will sit. I have attached a picture showing where you want to measure. If this measurement falls between 46-1/2" - 59-3/4" then the 60" bars will fit. For your E Group package you also need the Podium Foot Pack # TH460R and the Fit Kit # THKIT3142 to

  • Will the Thule Atlantis 1600XT Fit a 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • If your 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan has the factory roof rack installed then the Thule Atlantis 1600XT is compatible with it. If you don't have a roof rack already installed then I recommend installing the Thule WingBar Evo roof rack as it is more aerodynamic (causing less wind noise) and looks better than a round or square roof rack system.

  • Best Roof Rack for 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan That Wont Damage Paint
  • The Thule WingBar Evo roof rack is going to be the best rack for your 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan and there have been no complaints about damage to paint with this system. There are a couple of reasons why damaged paint with this rack is not a concern, starting with the clips you mentioned; the clips from this rack attach to the door frame where there is a soft rubber coating and not any paint. The other reason chipped paint should not be an issue is that the Fit Kit for this rack has soft

This rack is very easy to install, is well-made, and has aero shaped bars so wind noise would be at a minimum. Then for a kayak carrier the Thule Hullaport part # TH848 would be a great option. It's padded, can fold down when not in use, and could potentially carry a second kayak if ever needed.

The 60 inch bars, # TH711500 and # TH711520, are the manufacturer recommended bars. The 53 inch bars are not long enough to maximize the weight carrying capacity of the vehicle and fit properly which is why the 60 inch bars are needed.

  • Can Crossbars for a Thule Roof Rack be Spaced Further Apart on a 2012 Honda CR-V

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
