Re: Thule Aero Blades

Looks cool. Wonder if they will work with roof baskets?

Re: Thule Aero Blades

released right after the rei 20% off sale...
But, they will work with the same 460r feet

I wonder how much quieter they are....if you were going to keep your bars on the vehicle full time, even when your basket, ski carrier, et al was not on, and they are substantially quieter, it might be worth it...

Re: Thule Aero Blades

The video (linked above) claims 13DB less noise than prior Thule bars.

Re: Thule Aero Blades

funny, my aero bars (not the blades we are talking about), just arrived by UPS a few minutes ago. As i still don't have a car to attach them to, i guess i have a few days to decide what to do.

Re: Thule Aero Blades

If you install them upside down does it lift the Jeep off of the ground when you drive over a certain speed?
