The Thule 871XT Fairing features updated mounting hardware for a better and more secure fit on Thule square and Thule Rapid Aero bars. The Thule 871XT Fairing is 38 inches wide.


  • Drastically reduces noise and resistance created by your rack
  • Works with Thule Rapid Aero loadbars without blocking T-Track for accessories
  • No more knobs sticking straight up on Rapid Aero fits
  • More secure fit on Thule square bars
  • Increased rigidity to prevent wind-slap
  • Improves vehicle's gas mileage
  • Constructed from high strength plastic
  • Rubber bumpers and anti-scuff film to protect your vehicle's finish
  • Comes in three other sizes 870XT, 872XT, and 873XT
  • Fairings do not fit Aeroblade bars. Why? THEY DON'T NEED TO! Aeroblades are the strongest, quietest, and most aerodynamic load bar out there!

Fit guide is wrong for my vehicle fairing is smaller than the space between the towers so it it dosnt reduce wind noise. Rack Attack offered return but I did not want to pay return shipping and 15% restock. Contacted Thule and asked them to just send me the larger size acrylic piece they refused to help me.

Easy to mount and quieted the beast! Well worth the investment. Wish it was lockable? Thule spec'ed too small a fairing for my car, but Rack Attack fixed the error without question. GREAT customer service!

Product is awesome, I don't what the review above is talking about. If installed properly wind noise reduction is about 95% less than without. My car doesn't sound like I'm in a wind tunnel anymore. Install manual is not that great (as all thule manuals) but once you get the hang of it, it is not that difficult to install. Plus that rack looks super cool now. Again 95% wind noise reduction after I installed this fairing

I gave it a rating of one because it looks cool. Otherwise this fairing is useless. I doubt it serves any other function. Wind noise is not reduced and may actually be louder than without!
