Not only is the Thule WingBar safe, stylish and aerodynamic, it's also extremely quiet. In fact, it's so quiet, one can easily forget it's mounted on the roof altogether! Whether you are biking, kayaking, skiing or whatever – the Thule Wing Bar will enable you to engage in an active lifestyle to the full!
And it showed a result of 13 dB lower noise than the previous Thule AeroBars. So what does this mean? Well decibels are hard to explain. The scale is logarithmic. Every three decibels means double the sound energy. So, 13 dB equates to half of half of half of half. Therefore it produces only 6% of the original bars sound energy. Basically this means they are virtually silent!
The WingBar's design registered TrailEdge uses sharp rounded corners, much like many current popular fuel-efficient vehicles. This promote clean air release behind the bar, helping to reduce aerodynamic drag and to minimise any adverse effect on fuel consumption.

The length of the roof bar is determined by the car width and the position of the roof bar fixing points or roof rails. However, for most of Thule's load carrier systems you can choose between the elegant aluminium wing bars together with a vehicle specific fitting kit or the more basic original classic square bars. In comparison aluminium wing bars are lighter, more aerodynamic and quieter as well as more fuel efficient.
Thule Wing bars have an integrated T-track that allows you to use the full width of the roof bars for fitting all kinds of load accessories. The ingenious T-Track feature is especially useful when carrying several bikes or a roof box and bikes on the roof. When you change load accessories, e.g. from bike carrier to ski carrier, simply slide in and attach the new accessory. You can use the full length of the wing bar, even the space above the load carrier foot, to enable several accessories to be fitted on the car roof.
