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.


  • 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

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.
