Thule AeroBlade Crossbar Review
Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer
installation instructions and specs for complete information.
Today we are going to take a look at the Thule AeroBlade crossbar. The
AeroBlade is available in 4 lengths, 43 inches, 47 inches, 53 inches and 60
inches. The AeroBlade is Thules quietest, strongest loadbar. On a vertical
load test it can sustain over 800 pounds of force. It also managed to
decrease the drag force by 55 when compared to the Thule Rapid Aero cross
bar. On the top is a rubber wind diffuser that sits inside the T-slot. The
wind diffuser helps control the air flow to keep noise down. It produces 13
decibels less noise than the previous Thule Rapid Aero bar. The slight bow
in the center of each bar helps to ensure a sturdy, custom fit roof rack.
Like the Rapid Aero bar the AeroBlade has a T-slot for attaching
accessories. What is different about this system is the end cap. The end
cap does not need to be removed in order to mount or remove accessories. It
will swing up and out of the way to allow access to the T-Slot. Once you
have installed or removed whatever accessories you need in the T-slot,
close the end cap and your ready to go.

Review of the Thule Hyper XL Rooftop Cargo Box - etrailer.com
Today were going to be taking a look at the Thule Hyper XL Rooftop Cargo
Box with 17 cubic feet of space, in two-tone black and silver, part number
TH612. The Thule Hyper XL has a carrying capacity of 17 cubic feet, with a
weight capacity of 110 pounds. Its made of a rugged 5-layer ABS plastic
with an acrylic cap that resists impacts, weather, and harsh UV rays. The
Hi-Flow base of the Thule Hyper allows air to pass between the vehicle and
the box, reducing drag and maintaining fuel economy. Another unique feature
of the Thule Hyper XL, is that it features a dual-side-opening lid. This is
going to allow you to easily load and unload your cargo from either side.
Also featured on the AcuTight mounting hardware, are these little slots
installed onto the clamps. What these slots are designed to do, is using
the two included straps, you can feed these straps through these little
grooves, and then bring those straps around your gear. If you have any skis
or snowboards, or maybe any delicate items that might be moving around when
youre driving down the road, these straps are going to help secure all that
gear, so that nothing gets damaged or broken. The Thule Hyper features the
Thule One-Key System lock cores.

Thule Raceway Rear Mount Bike Rack Presented by Rack Outfitters
Save 10%, get FREE shipping and no tax outside Texas, easy to buy here:
The Thule Raceway two bike carrier is the ultimate in rear mounted bike
racks for vehicles that have no receiver hitch. This rack fits a wide
range of vehicles by attaching to the trunk or hatch using Thule's unique
ratcheting cable system. The cable system provides a secure attachment to
the vehicle plus the FitDial locks for an effective theft deterrent for the
rack. Thule also includes an integrated cable lock which locks the outside
positioned bicycle to the rack, thereby essentially locking the bike
positioned on the inside cradles.
Molded rubber pads provide a protective grip where the rack rests on the
vehicle. The metal hooks and cables that attach have rubber coverings to
further protect the vehicle's painted surfaces. The Raceway's lower legs
and bicycle support arms are constructed using very strong, rust-proof
molded plastic. Bikes are held in protective cradles and rubber straps at
two points on the bicycle frame's top tube and a third anti-sway cradle and
strap grip the bicycle's seat tube. This three point bike attachment helps
to keep bikes from swinging into each other or the vehicle. The bike
support arms are designed to accommodate a wide range of bicycles that have
horizontal top tubes, a Thule Artificial Top Tube accessory may be
necessary for some bikes that do not have a conventional frame. The
support arms easily fold down when not being used and the entire rack folds
up to for storage between uses.
The Thule Raceway is an excellent choice for those looking for a premium
strap mounted rack for two bicycles. Please check the Thule Fit Guide to
confirm that this rack is suitable for your vehicle. Also, review the
product manual to familiarize yourself with how the rack attaches to the
vehicle, how bikes are held and other important user notes.
