Video Transcript for Thule Crossbars AirScreen XT Review

Hi, it's Evangeline here at etrailer, and today, we have the Thule AirScreen XT, so this is gonna be a wind fairing for your Thule crossbars. We'll take a look at how to install it and how it works right here at Wind fairings became super popular for the round and square crossbar market, especially the square bar, because of just how they're shaped, lots of noise when you go down the highway. Now, aero bars are a lot more popular, especially things like the Thule WingBar Evo, which is what we have up top on our vehicle. So we don't have as much wind noise, but for certain situations, maybe you have a cargo basket, maybe you have a bike on your roof, maybe you're carrying larger or bulkier items, you may want to decrease that wind noise, and that's where this will come in handy. I put a bulky thing on the roof, which is an entire bike with a bike rack and we have them on our aero bars.

Now, let's drive down the highway and listen to it. There's a little bit of wind noise from the bike, so we'll see if using a fairing will make a difference. So there really wasn't that much noise that I could notice, like I could hear a little whistle from the bike, but nothing too concerning, but I was also going about 60 miles per hour, and I just had a single bike up there. So if you have something bulkier, maybe a cargo basket, and you have more wind noise, you may want to install this fairing. So the fairing on a roof and the clip lined up to our crossbar, you get the strap, bring that over the crossbar, you're gonna push down while pressing on that clip, it's gonna be a tight fit.

So all the straps are secure, everything's lined up, we've got the rubber pads on the bottom. Well, now, we gotta take it for a drive. Now, while there was a little bit of a change, I don't think there was that big of a difference when it comes to wind noise that I could hear. Now, that could be different depending on what's on the roof and or what speeds we're going at, how much wind is coming down, things like that. So I do think that wind fairings we're very important when we had round and square crossbars as our only options.

Now, that we have aerodynamic bars though, not as big of a deal, they're solid, they're sturdy, and they don't make as much wind noise or have that much wind drag going down the road. Pretty much all of the other brands that have crossbars also have fairings for them as an option. This one, I do like the ratchet straps. They're a little tricky at first to get into and tighten down, but compared to clamps and things that have wing nuts, these are so much easier to use, kinda like the one that Inno has for their screen, you have to tighten that down with some knobs. Now, most of them have the rubber stoppers on the bottom that sit on your roof, I do like how this one is curved and designed to sit gently on your roof, create that grip and traction without sliding, but also, not scratching up your roof.

So if you are gonna get an air screen or a wind screen or a wind fairing for your roof rack, I personally don't think it's as big of a deal as it was with only round and square crossbar options. But amongst your wind fairing options, Thule has a very nice sleek design and very easy to install. Remember, you do have those different lengths, so make sure you get the right one for you. And that was a look at our Thule AirScreen XT Wind Fairing for your crossbars here at etrailer. My name is Evangeline and I hope you enjoyed the journey..

I love etrailer and the wonderful support they give to customers. Wanted one of these air screens and knew that the best place to ship for it online was here! Thanks for your help again!


Love it. Clean look, works great.


Product works but some of the rubber feet have came off the bottom of them and can’t seem to find replacements

I have good news as we do have the rubber piece that you are looking for. It is part # TH22FH on our site.


The Thule Airscreen arrived a day earlier than I anticipated, which was awesome. Very smooth process. Installation was a snap (I recommend doing the first half inside on the kitchen counter or table, then moving to the garage/outdoors for the actual attachment to the vehicle). No tools are required, which made it easy. It looks great on the car -- and I opted for the "long" size (44") which I think looks better for our 2020 VW Golf than the smaller versions.


It looks all right, thought it would be further forward. But my roof rack doesn't slide further forward than it is now. All of the parts were there and it assembled great. Overall mildly satisfied haven't driven with it yet.


Looks awesome and totally eliminated the sound caused by my Thule square bars


Great product. Does what it's supposed to, the wind noise is significantly decreased and it looks great!


Item was just as described, shipped quickly and arrived in great shape. Always a good experience with!


Awesome! Comes off and on easily and I e ran this thing through the car wash like 30 times this past year with no issues. 10/10
Also e trailer ships everything at lightspeed. 11/10


Significant reduction in wind noise. Wish I bought this ten years ago.


Very pleased with the way the Thule XT airscreen looks on my roof bars. Well made and easy to install.


The instructions were half missing and dimensionally does not make the same footprint as the previous generation (this one rests on top of the sunroof that LUCKILY, I don't use) whereas the the previous one easily reached forward far enough to clear it. etrailer does not have a look-up feature for sizing for this product (at least not for a MB ML350 SUV). 4 Stars is actually generous.


Very satisfied thanks



Used on our GM rack on a Chevy Sonic Hatchback. I'd say the noise was a 6 pre air screen and it cuts it down to a 2. Very easy and simple to install


Luis R.


It is actually fantastic I purchased another set clamp for my Chevy Silverado 1500 2LT 2.7 Turbo 310 horsepower 2023


I used this on my 3500 Chevy van. It has cut down on the noise and I’m very pleased.


Great product


Well made. Very easy to assemble.


received the item very quickly and at a great price.


Very good quality.


Great Seller and Comunication. Fast sh ipper

  • Will Clamps From Thule AirScreen XT TH82WV Fit Thule Fairing 871XT For AeroBlade Crossbars
    I took a look at the instructions and parts for both, and there isn't a way to use your older Thule 871XT wind fairing from what I can see, as the clamps install much differently on the AirScreen XT. So while I know it isn't exactly what you were wanting to hear, the only option to get a fairing that fits the AeroBlade crossbars is to replace it with a new AirScreen XT. Since your old fairing is 44 inches, the same length of AirScreen that will fit your AeroBlade crossbars is the following: -...

  • Correct AirScreen Size for Roof Rack on 2019 Honda CR-V
    The 38" Thule AirScreen Fairing TH8701 will fit with your 2019 Honda CR-V but you might have a little space leftover - you should be able to fit the 44" long AirScreen XT # TH82WV instead. With fairings you can always use smaller ones than what is recommended but you can rarely use larger than recommended options. Since it sounds like you already have the 38" fairing I'd go ahead and install it to see if you like the length it gives you and then you can upgrade to the 44" if you want something...

    For the Thule 47 inch AeroBlade Load Bars like the ARB47B that are on your 2017 VW Golf Alltrack, Thule recommends using the 44 inch long AirScreen Fairing # TH82WV. This will work perfectly with the load bars on your vehicle and will definitely help with the whistling you are hearing during travel, along with helping to reduce wind drag. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you can also check out. I also recommend just checking to make sure that the rubber...

  • Correct Wind Fairing for Volvo XC60 Roof Rack
    In most cases, Volvo Roof Rack are made by Thule so your best option for fairing compatibility would be from Thule as well, the AirScreen XT for Thule Crossbars part # TH82WV for example but you'd need to measure the space between the mounting feet to be sure you get the right size. I have attached a list below with our sizes if the above won't work.

    While Thule has not tested the fit of their 38" AirScreen XT # TH72WV on your 2021 Subaru WRX with the factory crossbars, the fairing is universal in that it uses straps to secure to the crossbars. It also has individual adjustment knobs that allow you to customize to fit to your roof. The fairing is compatible with aero-style bars that are no more than 3-1/4" long x 1-1/8" tall so this may help you to determine if they will fit your OEM crossbars. It looks like their 44" AirScreen XT...

  • Recommended Wind Fairing For SportRack Square Bars
    Since the AirScreen XT for Thule Crossbars - 44" Long # TH82WV measures 44" long and will be a tight fit, I recommend going with the AirScreen XT for Thule Crossbars - 38" Long # TH72WV which measures 38" long in total and will fit between your crossbar's usable length of 41". This will simply strap onto your crossbars and will reduce wind noise and drag. I attached a demonstration video for you to check out.

  • Can I Use Thule Wind Fairing on 2021 Kia Telluride Factory Crossbars
    The AirScreen XT for Thule Roof Racks- 44" # TH82WV or 52" # TH22WV hasn't been tested with factory crossbars, so you'll want to measure the dimensions of your bars- the # TH82WV was designed to fit on bars that are mostly 1-1/4" tall and 3-1/2" wide. If your factory bars aren't close to those it might be too loose of a fit, but typically factory crossbars are roughly similar to aero style crossbars in width so it'll be the height that you might find hardest to make work. You can measure...

  • Recommended Air Fairing for a 2021 Subaru Crosstrek with Thule Crossbars
    It looks like the Subaru-issued crossbars for the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek are Thule aero bars. I cannot tell if they are WingBar or AeroBlade crossbars. Either way, though, the AirScreen XT that you referenced will work. However, the particular one that you referenced, part # TH22WV, is 52" long. Your Crosstrek is prescribed 50" long crossbars, so this one will probably not work. Instead, the 44" version of the AirScreen XT, part # TH82WV, is more likely a better fit. I suggest measuring...

  • Is 38 inch Fairing Good Size for Roof Rack of 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz
    The way to pick out the correct size fairing for a roof rack like what is on your 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz is to measure the distance between the feet of the rack and go with the fairing that matches that the closest. I'd imagine a 38 inch fairing like the # TH72WV that you referenced would fit well but you'll have to measure to be sure. I attached a link to a page that has all of the Thule fairing lengths we offer as well.

  • Will Thule AirScreen XT Fit OEM Crossbars on a 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI
    The AirScreen XT should have no issues fitting the OEM crossbars on your 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI. I believe the 38" # TH72WV should work but I'll need to know the distance between the legs on your roof rack to make an accurate recommendation. Please note your crossbars are a little taller than the average aftermarket so the fairing may not sit all the way down to your roof but it will be better than a big opening! Attached is a review video for you to check out.
