What is the Difference Between the Thule AeroBlade Edge and WingBar Roof Racks


Im looking at the Thule aero roof rack for a 2014 BMW X3 with rails. There seems to be 2 options on your website that appear to be identical. One is the Edge and the other is WingBar. What is the difference? From the website, they appear identical.

The discontinued Thule AeroBlade Edge uses Thule's AeroBlade Edge technology which mount flush to your 2014 BMW X3 factory side rails so do not extend farther than your side rails.

Thule WingBar Roof Rack with # TH711200 is an aftermarket style rack which sits along the top of each bar. Unlike the AeroBlade Edge, this roof rack extends past your vehicle's factory side rails. This rack is 47" long which gives more space to carry items on your roof. It also comes in black using # TH711220.

The foot pack you need is # TH710601 which mounts onto your roof and provide a sleek design. You will also need the roof rack fit kit # TH186007 which reinforce the weight distribution and stabilize your cargo by securing the foot on your roof.

I have attached photos comparing the Podium and Edge style racks for you to check out.
