This complete multi-purpose base roof rack is the perfect fit for the 2013-2017 and possibly beyond, Audi Allroad Wagon with raised rails that run front to back on the outer edges of the roof. The fit includes models equipped with a sunroof. The system includes two load bars and four feet. Locks are recommended and available separately in match sets.
The low profile Thule 450R Rapid Crossroad has rubber bases that rest directly on the side rail, the foot adds only 2.5 inches of height above the side rail and provides maximum load capacity above and beyond the width of the side rails. A thin, rubberized stainless steel band wraps under the vehicle's side rail for a strong protective grip.
The Thule 450R Rapid Crossroad Foot is easy to assemble and install. Slide the foot into the load bar, then wrap the band around the side rail, tighten by turning the integrated handle with a built-in hex wrench, no additional tools are needed. The one fastener tightens the band to the vehicle's raised side rail and tightens the foot to the load bar simultaneously.
The Thule AeroBlade load bars are strong, quiet and aerodynamic providing maximum capacity, no whistling or howling and low wind drag. The advanced aluminum BoxBeam construction has dedicated slots for foot attachment and a separate t-slot track for mounting compatible carriers.
