  • Aluminum bars feature a textured cover that diffuses airflow better than a smooth surface, greatly reducing wind noise
  • Bars also feature SwingBlade™ end caps that pivot open allowing full access to the T-slot for easy accessory installation
  • Another smart feature of the bars, the SmartSlide™ system is a tape-measure-free, hassle-free molded measurement system on the underbar for easy foot installation
  • Using a vertical load test, the AeroBlade bars can sustain over 800 lbs. of force
  • Thule AeroBlade bars work with all of the Thule Rapid Foot Packs and are just 1 component of a Thule car top rack system
  • These load bars are available in 4 different sizes, so be sure to refer to Thule's Fit Guide for the minimum size recommended for a specific vehicle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy, look sharp Got these to go on my 2011 Honda Fit. I splurged and got the Aero Bars because I wanted to minimize any gas mileage reduction. With just the bars (no load) I did not notice any decrease in mileage. They seem really sturdy. A couple of tips - the fat edge of the bar faces forward on the vehicle, like an airplane wing. This is not really explicitly stated in the directions. Second tip - search YouTube for installation instructions, particularly if you are using them with a fit kit. The Thule instructions are all pictorial (not in written language) and deciphering them was like some kind of IQ test that I felt like I was failing. I found multiple YouTube sites that had excellent step-by-step instructions for installing the fit kit and load bars, specific to my model of vehicle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thule Bars Originally tried to buy Yakima but would not fit. Took them back to the REI Tigard and Bill spent at least an hour making sure I got the right rack for the right price. He was awesome!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thule AeroBlade Bars & Force L Roof Box Just bought these for a trip from Arizona through the northwest to British Columbia. About 2500 miles so far. The bars and box create very little wind noise and, from my mileage figures, not too much drag. Did well in a driving rain, but slight water seepage in the front. Best of all, it left room in the car for the dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, quality bars These bars are very quiet and will hold just about anything you might want to put on them with ease. They look sleek, are well-built, and don't affect my MPG's. Works for me!
