Enjoy the silence.

If you’ve ever opened your sunroof with your roof rack installed, you know it sounds like a dump truck full of blow dryers in a wind tunnel. For the past few years, roof rack manufacturers have been developing bars that cut down on drag and wind noise, and nobody’s doing it better than Thule. The Aeroblade Edge Flush Mount load bar takes the wing shape to the next level with Thule’s exclusive WindDiffuser textured surface technology, creates surface turbulence to silence wind noise.

AeroBlade load bars are more than quiet, however. The bars’ BoxBeam aluminum construction means these bars can withstand an incredible 800 pounds of force. They also incorporate SmartSlide technology, an integrated foot adjustment system that makes perfect positioning a snap. And, of course, AeroBlade’s use Thule OneKey system, so one key can operate everything on your rack system.

  • WindDiffuser textured surface technology

Sleek Look with Good Sound Drown

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I ended up switching up vehicles to a Land Rover about 6 months ago and being the avid skier that I am I learned long ago that stowing skis inside while easy can wreck your interior quickly. I'm a bit partial to Thule so have the Aeroblade Edge a shot as it was one of the only options for said vehicle brand and it does the job pretty well so far.

The noise drowning performance is pretty solid within reason. Most calm days at up to highway speeds almost give no noise at all. Put a bit of wind in there (esp. headwinds) and that changes a bit, but it isn't bad unless the speed is gale force.

Adding extras on there is pretty much a cinch, but the new attachment system with Thule products where it's more of a hinge/jaw design helps to keep the bars in good shape. The old school two plastic pieces cinched together at both ends with allen screws tends to mark them up a bit. Also, installation is usually easy with this sort of thing and it was with the bars, but the fit kit (which I'll go over at item number THU0400) was a bit vague.

Overall a sleek addition to a vehicle if you really don't want the wind screeching at you when you go above 30mph.

Do I need to order two of these?

Unless you intend to use a 2x4 and blocks for the other one! I would recommend getting 2.


Bars whistle when car is above 30 MPH.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

With a name like AeroBlade, one would assume the whistling noises typically associated with roof bars would be eliminated, or at least, reduced. However, that is not the case with these bars. I installed them on my 2014 BMW 3 series wagon with factory flush rails. Whenever the car is driven more than 30 MPH, the bars would start to whistle. Thule support website suggested moving the bars further back but that did not work. I also covered all possible gaps with electrical tapes but the problem appears to be the bars themselves.

Even though both bars are exactly symmetrical, Thule support suggested swapping the front bar with the rear bar. That also did not help. Thule support stopped responding after i told them their suggested solutions made no difference to the whistling noise.

So really, i can't say these bars are any quieter than the OEM roof rack i used to have on my old Audi A4.

I had the exact same issue as C. Yong. Installed these on an SUV with flush rails and no matter what I tried to do, I could not get the bars to stop whistling at any speeds >35mph. I did every recommendation offered by Thule including everything the previous reviewer mentioned. All to no avail. Called Thule tech support and their answer was that on some cars, whistling is just an issue. Terribly frustrating.

These are good looking bars, and setup was relatively easy, so I'm disappointed that I couldn't get them to work for my car.

Have you found a different rack that does not have this issue? I'm considering this rack but would be concerned with the noise.

Will this fit a 2010 Lexus IS 250?
