I'm trying to order crossbars for my 2017 Ford Edge (flush side rails) but it's hard to tell if I'm ordering the right version, size, and all the parts (feet and installation kit?) And if the crossbars are right for the paddleboard rack that I'm considering.
I'm looking at the aeroblade edge roof bar flush mount (what size)
Thule Evo clamp foot pack
Will those work and then which fit kit? The Evo Clamp fit kit?
If I got this system which paddle board rack would be best? I'm looking at the Yakima SUPDawg paddle board roof rack (because I'm short and worried about loading) and the Thule SUP Taxi XT mount. The Yakima systems says the cross bars need to be longer?
Thank you in advance,
Hello there @Rhubarb!
Thanks for reaching out to the Community! Sorry to hear that selecting a rack has proven to be a bit confusing.
If you are looking to go with Aeroblade system, you will need three components. You will need the Thule Podium Fit Kit in size 4047, a size large Aeroblade roof bar and a size medium. This will complete your base rack system.
As far as the Thule SUP Taxi XT, it is designed to fit all Thule rack systems!
With those items, you should be good to go!
The way the edge system works, the "feet" are in this case attached to the bar and only require the fit kit for further installation.
