Our take on the Thule ARB47 AeroBlade Load Bars

by Buck Pomerantz
Thule

Thule rack systems consist of a set of load bars — which supports your accessories and carriers — held by a set of foot packs that are attached to your vehicle by a fit kit. All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.

Thule makes their sharp-looking AeroBlade ARB47 47" load bars out of lightweight aluminum with a sleek and textured aerodynamic profile that cuts down on wind noise and drag, and matches the styling of your ride. These strong load bars come in four lengths — 43", 47", 53", and 60" — to best fit your vehicle and what you want to carry.

Note: AeroBlade load bars fit Rapid Aero foot packs and come with matching end caps that swivel out of the way to help make installation easier.

Thule ARB47 load bars

Written By Anonymous, Norfolk, VA on Friday, February 28, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great product by Thule the bars fit on my 07 WRX with ease. The install took approximately 15 min with all the measuring.
Pros:
Little to no road noise at speeds upwards of 80mph. Seems very durable paired with traverse foot pack.
Cons:
The rear bar sits slightly wider and higher in the rear. And the measuring of the placement is no fun for the install.
