Thule rack systems consist of a set of load bars — which support 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 ARB53 53" 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.

Easy to Install

Very nice well designed rails

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love these rails. Very nice designed beefy looking Aluminum extrusions. Good solid looking anodization without blemishes. Very high quality. Even nice extras like inserts on the bottom to allow for adjustment and still cut down on drag. Clever end cap design and an insert on the top that covers the interlock, used to fasten other accessories, that keeps it aerodynamic, sleek and serves to double as a top high friction surface to keep your stuff in place. Plus, they look very sharp on top of my 2012 Jeep Liberty.

Pros: Nice design, high quality.

Cons: Can't think of one, they're sharp!
