Description

The Thule AeroBlade Load Bars feature the latest technology and design to create a whisper-quiet roof rack. They work with the existing Thule Rapid Aero Foot Packs and Thule Accessories. Fairings do not work with AeroBlade bars.


Features

  • Aerodynamic shape helps reduce any possible cabin noise
  • Integrated T-slot for easy mounting of select Thule accessories
  • Carry up to 165lbs of cargo, weight varies from vehicle to vehicle
  • Offered in three other sizes for optimal fit on any vehicle in any application
  • Profile of the bar delivers a sleek new look
  • AeroBlade bars will only work with the Thule Rapid Aero Foot Packs
  • WindDiffuser is a textured surface on the t-slot cover that disturbs the airflow better than a smooth surface, greatly reducing wing noise
  • The sophisticated BoxBeam aluminum extrusion creates one of the strongest load bars in the market. Using a vertical load test, the AeroBlade can sustain over 800 lbf of force
  • The new SwingBlade end cap pivots open to allow full access to the t-slot for easy accessory installs
  • The new SmartSlide is a molded measurement system providing a quick, no-hassle, tape-measure-free foot installation. SmartSlide also covers the underbar slot to improve aerodynamics and noise diffusion
  • NOT compatible with the following Thule products: 503 Load Stops, 516 Prologue, 579XT Canoe Carrier, 558P Tandem Carrier, 847 Outrigger II, 884 Roll Model
  • Fairings do not work with it. Why? THEY DON'T NEED TO! This is the strongest, quietest, and most aerodynamic load bar out there!

Pricey but excellent. Used with Thule 450R Rapid Crossroad mounting hardware. They replaced a no-brand square crossbars which were less than a third of these. You can't compare them to each other. Thule are quiet!!!!!! Really!!!!. Night and day comparing to square ones. They are also rigid. I have traveled over 1500 miles with them at times 100Mph (when conditions allowed - not that I should) and they were rock solid carrying Thule/Sears roof carrier box. The old ones sounded like a freight train above 50Mph and the whole box was shaking and wobbling. I first considered yakima WhisperBlades but I'm glad they were out of stock. Thule sits higher but provides more surface to install accessories and they install very easily.
