Thule goes for the Edge

Thule, a specialist in roof-mounted carrying solutions and general luggage stuff, has designed a very aerodynamic roof rack called the Wingbar Edge.

It has, the company says, been designed with all the advantages of the previous Wingbar - quiet, streamlined and strong for its weight - but sits closer to the host car's roof and has slim and sleek end caps.


The wing-inspired and wind tunnel-tested Wingbar claims to create only 10% of the noise and half the drag of the previous carry-kit. Shaped rubber diffusers are said to be behind the improved aerodynamics and the rig is said to work well with Thule luggage boxes and sports utility solutions.  It can carry 75kg and can fit any car with fixing points, flush rails or even free-standing roof rails.

The Edge rack can be securely locked to the mounts.

Wingbar Edge roof racks are available from Thule fitting centres.
