Thule Fairings Customer Reviews

Nothing ruins a long road trip like the whining whistle of wind turbulence rushing through a roof rack. Even quick jaunts around town can turn into ear-splitting annoyances. With a Thule Fairing riding on the leading edge of your roof rack, you won't have to plug your ears with cotton before hitting the road.
The sleek, aerodynamic design of Thule Fairings channels wind up and over your roof rack. This simple redirection of airflow dramatically cuts the noise you'll hear in your cockpit. And, this acrylic is extra rigid to virtually eliminate wind slap.
Whether you drive an Audi or a Hummer, there's a Thule Fairing to work with your roof rack. They come in a wide range of lengths to fit the narrowest and the widest rides on the road. Plus, they mount to any Thule rack system with Square Bars. On top of that, Thule builds your fairing in the USA. They're even backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

Many of todays vehicles offer a panoramic sunroof. I found out first hand when a object impacts the roof....It explodes. While the fairing is no guaranty in does redirect the airflow up and over the glass and crossbars. This fairing is very well designed and will serve a real function rather than looks. I would also recommend removing cross bars when not in use. I was a crash test dummy and survived what undoubtedly could be far worse. Great product and brand with a cautionary suggestion.

These are designed to fit on Thule Rapid Aero bars, and I am sure they do that perfectly. They sort of clip on to VW OEM aero bars that are trapezoid-shaped (not oval like the Rapid Aero), but the fit was not very secure. In the end, I drilled holes in my bars, and used a bolt-wingnut fastener to mount them. The fairing eliminated the howling noise I was getting above 60 mph. Originally, the roof rack dropped my fuel economy by 1-2 mpg. The fairing restored it to the original.

The wind fairing does exactly what it is supposed to do. Eliminated the annoying hum from the Thule rack. Not bad for a flimsy piece of expensive plastic. Even still it is an essential component to the Thule rack system.
