Thule 450R Rapid Crossroad Reviews

After a bunch of research, I ordered the Thule 450R feet and 53" Aero bars, along with a 6-pack of lock cores. I paid more than I wanted to for a basic roof rack but got a great deal from Rack Attack and now that I see the set up on the vehicle, I am very happy with the purchase. My first exprience w. Thule products. I find them to to be well engineered and made of high quality material. The kit is easy to install, extremely sturdy, and looks great on the Highlander...color scheme even matches. Road test up to 50mph produces some minor whistling but indiscernable with the moon roof closed...we'll get it on the interstate later this week and see what happens to noise and mileage. Thanks to Walter and the team at Rack Attack for the prompt service and attention to followup questions I had.

My son (who is 14) decided to put this on the XC90 for me because I was out of town. I was a little concerned that it might not be as tight as I wanted, but it was perfect. The system was whistling a little so we adjusted the position to be a little more forward and it reduced it some. Now we can only hear it if we have the sunroof open. My son adjusted it in about 3 minutes on both sides just showing me how easy it was done.

Does this item include the cross bars or is it just the feet
The 450R Rapid Crossroad pack only includes the feet. It would require the purchase of Thule Aeroblades to make it fit on your vehicle.

I am interested in the thule 450R with aero bars. Will this work with my older thule bike carriers (echelon) & yakima sky box?
The 450R looks to be a good fit with your vehicle provided that you have the raised rails. Aero bars have been discontinued and replaced with aero Blades they are more aerodynamic and much quieter on the highway. Your Echelon should have the proper mounting hardware if it has the carriage bolts with the rubber coated plates, or you can pick up an Xadapt 9 this is a kit containing T bolts that slide in the track of your aero blade giving it a cleaner look. Most boxes are fine, the only issue you might have is that your hatch might hit the box when open, try to fit the back bar about 20" forward of the hatch.

Dear friends at Rack attack,
I am searching for the best rack option to install on my Honda Pilot 2010, which will be better the 450R or just 450??? Which of them has a bigger weight resistance? So far i am staying with Thule but if you can give some advice on other it will be great to hear!
The 450 and 450R will carry the same capacity. That said, the 450R will be quieter than the standard 450 system from Thule.
There are other racks that will fit this vehicle but the 450R is the best in our opinion.
Thule is pleased and very excited to recognize Rack Attack as a Thule 5-Star Dealer because we are "going beyond the borders..." and providing consumers the ultimate point of reference for locating product, service, and support.
