The WingBar Evo and new SquareBar are compatible with the Rapid Podium, Rapid Traverse and Rapid Crossroad foot packs, in addition to the new Evo foot packs. If a Rapid foot is used, the bars should be mounted to the same recommended bar scale measurements listed for the Aeroblade bars.
The new SquareBars use a similar mounting system to the WingBar Evo and Aeroblade crossbars. Because of this track-mounted system, they are not compatible with the previous SquareBar feet that wrap around the bar.
Don’t worry, they aren’t broken! The WingBar Evo and new SquareBar have a slight bow out of the box. The bend allows for the tension that will be applied when the foot pack is tightened to the roof and will straighten out once properly installed.
The WingBar Evo bar and new SquareBar have a maximum load capacity of 220 pounds for a pair. However, the maximum weight of the system is determined by the vehicle itself. Each vehicle with a compatible Thule roof bar fit goes through CityCrash safety testing and has a maximum weight capacity determined by its performance. Consult the vehicle manufacturer or contact us at 01622 230988 for more information on the recommended carrying capacity of your vehicle.
Please consult our Buyer's Guide on our website to find the matching solutions for your car model. Start by selecting the Roof Rack category and enter the required vehicle details. If your vehicle or car model is not listed, we unfortunately don't have a solution.
The maximum load is always specified in the assembly instructions and is not to be exceeded. However, this limit is always subordinate to the maximum load recommended by the manufacturer of the car itself. It is always the lowest value that applies. Max. roof load = load rack weight + any fitted rack accessories + the weight of the load itself.
Please consult our Buyer's Guide on our website to find the matching solutions for your car model. Start by selecting the Roof Rack category and enter the required details of your new vehicle. If you already have some of these items, you can easily re-use them, if not you will have to follow the Buyer's Guide.
Don't worry, the rubber strip isn't supposed to fit straight away. You will need to tear it in half first then fit it to the roof bar.
