The Thule AeroBlade Edge is the first complete rack system to integrate a low-profile, aerodynamic design with the strongest carrying capacity of any aftermarket rack. Integrated bar and foot design combines foot and bar together for a low-profile, aerodynamic system.
Arched Lightweight Bar follows the curves and lines of the roof compementing your vehicle. Pre-Assembled for fast, easy installation. Styles to fit raised rail, fixed point and flush rail roof types. Fit Kits required for certain vehicles.
Boxbeam Load Bar Structure creates the strongest aftermarket load bars in the world. T-Track Compatible for fast mounting of carriers (Xadapt kit may be required for some carriers). WindDiffusier technology disturbs airflow to reduce noise and drag for improved fuel economy.
Styles to fit raised rail, fixed point and flush rail roof types. Fit Kits required for certain vehicles. Thule One-Key lock cylinders are included to lock the rack to the vehicle.

AeroBlade vs AeroBlade Edge
When choosing between the Thule AeroBlade and AeroBlade Edge it's important to consider the what is the best option for the intended use of the load bars.
Both bars offer exceptional aerodynamics, however the AeroBlade edge integrated foot and bar attachment is lower profile by 1/2 inch and more streamline than the AeroBlade which uses a separate foot attachment. This lower profile is not compatible with operation of most external opening sunroof designs.
Additionally, the AeroBlade Edge load bar does not extend beyond the attachment points for the ultimate in flush mount aerodynamics.
The AeroBlade, as illustrated below, provides extra usable bar space to attach carriers into the T-slot which runs over and beyond the foot.
For those who need the maximum space, in many cases it's possible to choose one size longer cross bar to further extend the load space of an AeroBlade roof rack system.
