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.


  • 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!

Pretty easy to install after watching videos. Makes some noise but I'm sure if I play around it will go away. Not disappointed! Would recommend.
