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.

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!

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.

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

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

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.

The other option would be to use the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack, part # TH7503-TH7504 for Silver or part # TH7503B-TH7504B for Black, which would give you more of an OEM look on your Odyssey.

  • Roof Rack & Canoe and Kayak Carriers for 2010 Toyota Highlander with Raised Factory Side Roof Rails
  • Square-bar roof racks generally offer the advantages of being lower in cost and having the broadest compatibility with accessory items like kayak carriers. Aero bars are more costly but are indeed quieter. Thing is, by the time you add kayak and/or canoe carriers, and the boats themselves, you've got so much stuff on your roof that can make noise that the benefit of the quieter Aero bars may not be evident. With that said, the cost of some Aero racks like the Rhino-Rack Vortex system,

  • 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

  • Thule TH480R Rapid Traverse Roof Rack Feet Compatibility With Old Type Square Crossbars
  • The Thule # TH480R foot pack isn't compatible with the square crossbars unless they're the newer style that have the slots in the underside. Unfortunately, Thule no longer offers feet that are compatible with the older-style square bars nor is there an adapter available so your best bet will be to replace your existing bars with the new models that have the slots. The bars are available in the following lengths: 43 Inch, part # TH712100 47 inch, part # TH712200 50 inch, part # TH712300 53

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Will the Thule Rapid 400XT Foot Pack Work on a 2009 Toyota Matrix
  • I do have an option for you but I spoke to my contact at Thule and they said that the Thule Rapid 400XT Foot Pack that you have cannot be reused on your 2009 Toyota Matrix because the fit kits are no longer available. Therefore, if you wanted to reuse your crossbars you would need both the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack part # TH480R and the Thule Roof-Rack Fit Kit for Traverse Foot Packs part # THKIT1512. For a more cost effective option, we have the Rola APE Series Roof Rack

  • 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

  • Recommendation on a Roof Rack to Fit a 2005 Mini Cooper
  • I recommend the Thule Roof Rack System which consists of # TH711200 crossbars, # TH480R Feet, and custom fit kit # THKIT1366 for your 2005 Mini Cooper. The bars have a weight capacity of 165 lbs. However, this is only the limit of the bar and does not increase your roof's carrying capacity. Check your owners manual or contact your dealer to find out what is your Mini's roof capacity.

  • Can Thule Roof Rack Placement be Moved to Move Cargo Box Back on 2011 Ford Edge
  • The placement of the clips that hold the roof rack feet to your 2011 Ford Edge are very specific. Moving them can cause fit problems or unintended damage to the vehicle. Are you able to move the mounting feet on the box any further forward? That would move the box rearward some. The overhang doesn't appear to be excessive in your picture. It will create more wind resistance but if you can open the hood without hitting the box then it will still be fine.

  • 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. The answer page you found was one that was done several years ago with the older recommended bar that was longer. Currently the new bar design uses the longer 53 inch crossbar setup with part numbers # TH712400, # TH480R, and # THKIT1714.

  • Clearance Between Roof and Crossbar with Thule AeroBlade Bars on a 2005 Nissan Maxima
  • I went out to our studios and found a Rapid Traverse foot from a # TH480R kit and measured from the base to the bottom of where the bar would be. It was just under 3-1/4 inches. Because roofs are generally sloped and fit is different on every vehicle, use this measurement as a guide only to estimate where the bottom of the bar will approximately be. In addition to the foot pack you will also need the crossbars, # TH711420 in black or # TH711400 in silver, and fit kit # THKIT1538.

  • Could 53 Inch Thule AeroBlade Bars Be Installed onto a 2011 Honda Fit
  • A 53 inch Thule AeroBlade Load Bars # THARB53 would install onto your 2011 Honda Fit in the same way that the recommended 47 inch AeroBlade would. The reason the 53 inch bar is not recommended is because it will hang over and additional 3 inches on either side of your vehicle which might cause clearance issues. For example you would be more likely to hit your head on the bar since it would be hanging over the edge of the vehicle further. The part numbers you would need to install an

  • Replacement Foot for Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack 480R
  • You are going to need a new foot. There isn't a repair kit available. For a single Thule Rapid Traverse foot use # 7522249001. I recommend inspecting all of the other feet and fit kit parts to see if anything else is in need of replacing.

  • 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.

  • Aftermarket Roof Rack for 2017 Subaru Outback Touring Wagon for Transporting 16-ft Kayak
  • We do offer some aftermarket roof rack fits for your 2017 Subaru Outback Touring Wagon that has raised roof side rails. The current options are from Rhino-Rack and can be seen on the linked page. You can choose either silver or black bars; many customers prefer the black bar set-up, part # JA7975, for its OEM-like appearance. For silver bars order kit # JA7956. 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

  • 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 Rhino-Rack RVP Roof Rack # RRRVP27 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

  • 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 which is the largest

Basically you tighten the tool till the line on the green portion of the tool lines up with the line on the gray portion. See picture.

  • 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!

  • How Are Roof Rack Crossbar Dimensions Picked by Roof Rack Manufacturers
  • Thule picks the locations for their roof racks on vehicles based on where the roof is the strongest and also considering the spacing between the bars where most accessories are going to fit and work well. I can only safely recommend you use the recommended measurements for installing the roof rack on your vehicle as failing to do so will void the warranty.
