Thule has taken their popular AeroBlade load bars and applied a tough, textured, black powder coat finish for a stealthy look. The matte black finish enhances vehicles with black wheels, blacked-out grills or any vehicle where an all black base roof rack is prefered. Thule's black AeroBlade load bar offer the same high-performance features of their silver bars and include Thule's full lifetime warranty.
BoxBeam - The sophisticated BoxBeam aluminum extrusion creates one of the strongest load bars on the market. Using a vertical load test, the AeroBlade can sustain over 800 lbf of force.
SwingBlade - The new SwingBlade end cap pivots open to allow full access to the t-slot for easy accessory installs.
WindDiffuser - A textured surface on the t-slot cover that distrubs the airflow better than a smooth surface to greatly reduce wind noise. The AeroBlade design also features a kamm-tail to promote clean "air flow release" helping to reduce aerodymamic drag.
SmartSlide - The new SmartSlide is a molded measurement system providing a quick, no-hassle, tape measure free foot installation. SmartSlide also covers the underbar slot to improve aerodynamics and noise diffusion.
