Mountain bike trailheads, kayak launch points, a 48-state road trip—no matter how the open road is calling your name, the Thule Aeroblade Edge is there to answer in style. Custom designed for an incredibly low-profile stance, it rides so close to your roof that it looks factory installed. But, there’s more to this rack than a sleek look. It uses WindDiffuser technology to trim noisy turbulence and ditch drag for a hushed drive and better MPGs.
With the Thule Aero Blade Edge Base Rack, you never have to sacrifice capacity for clean lines. Unlike some aerodynamic bars that turn down the whistle volume at the expense of load-bearing strength, Aeroblade Bars sport Thule’s ingenious BoxBeam construction. By adding four internal walls, Thule is able to boost rigidity and maintain a narrow profile. And, their bowed shape flows with your auto’s curved roof for a natural pairing.
Whether your roof is bare or equipped with raised side rails, there’s a Thule Aero Bars Roof Rack System that fits it. The base racks come custom configured and pre-assembled for a painless at-home installation. And, they accept Thule One-Key Lock Cylinders (not included) for serious parking lot security. What’s more, your Thule quiet roof rack comes with a Lifetime Warranty.

I first installed a less expensive system on my car in order to save $$... big mistake. Cheaper systems are much louder - this one doesn't make a noise at all, and very easy to install! Great purchase!
