2022 Kia EV6

One year in, this fit kit and the whole system have worked very well on my Kia EV6.

I miss the simplicity, in terms of cost as well as installation and removal, of the old Thule rectangular-bar racks, but this system looks better, is quiet, won't sag, and seems more robust.


Very pleased with order. Shipped fast, not damaged, all parts accounted for. Easy install, very sturdy, and attractive design. Slight wind noise but that was expected compared to not having a roof rack.


Great roof cross bars for the Lexus RX450h ! Better and beefier than the OEM cross bars. Yes, these are more expensive (wish they weren't! Locks should be included in the base cost) They are solid and planted the XXL roof carrier with ease. Took a bit to center the roof carrier- so we could open the rear door without crashing into it. Only took a 3 mpg hit with the racks and carrier on the roof (@ +5 mph over speed limit on the highway) I really like the way they look on the vehicle. We're probably going to keep them up for snowboarding season. Keep in mind once they're initially installed- they're a snap to take down as well.I made a mark on the inside on the rails to make reinstalling easier.


I ordered the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - Silver - 50" with the Evo Flush Rail Feet for Thule Crossbars - Flush Side Rails and the Fit Kit for Thule Evo Flush Rail and Edge Flush Rail Roof Rack Feet for my 2020 Mazda CX9. I appreciated the product selector to make sure I was getting all the correct parts. I was happy with the products, but I did run into an issue where 1 of the rail feet had a defective bolt which required a replacement. I was very satisfied with etrailer's customer support, and how well they worked with me to get the part replaced quickly.


I ordered a Thule rack, including the mounting feet and the cross bars. I then learned, less than a day and a half from our departure for a ski trip, the mounting feet needed a “kit” of hardware in order to function. I spoke with Justin at etrailer who confirmed the kit was in stock. Though it was mid-afternoon, Justin confirmed with etrailer Shipping the kit could go out for next day delivery. The next morning the kit arrived and I successfully mounted our rack system. Clearly my fault for not getting all the necessary components. Still, Justin solved my problem. “Customer Service” is alive and well at etrailer! Thanks, Justin!


Originally ordered a Yakima system, but availability everywhere was virtually nil. Switched to Thule and ran into some of the same shortages with the supply chain, likely due to Covid. Took about a week to receive and it was the perfect part for my BMW X3.


Worked as promised. Easy install. We use it for our Kuat bike rack. If you need it for your ID.4 (AWD) get it.


Solid roof rack, but get help from etrailer to make sure you get the core feet.


Easy to install, took less than 30 min.
Perfect fit on a Volvo V60 CC.
No issues with a "trunk" mounted bike carrier secured to the rear bar. Yakima Frontloader also fit perfectly.


As always, when I need parts or a new roof rack, I look to etrailer to supply my needs. Fair prices, vast inventory and speedy service.


It took a long time for Thule to make a footkit for the 2021 Hyundai Elantra, but it was worth the wait. The fit on the car, carrying two kayaks, is very secure. We've had it a year with no problems.

E-Trailer was very quick in shipping as always.


After searching unsuccessfully for support in the retrofit of my legacy Thule rack to a new car, I was pleased by the excellent support from Bailey B. She was methodical in her query and verification of compatibility in my non-standard application. The rack


Perfect fit and easy installation. Highly recommend for a lower profile rack. Also allows sunroof to vent on 2016 Lexus RX350. Haven’t driven with them on yet so I don’t know how road noise is at this time.


Very pleasant experience, end to end. I found exactly what I needed, ordered processed and shipped very quickly.package arrived within 2 days and accurate great job guys. I’ll definitely buy from them again and highly recommended



Easy set up, great roof rack. One small problem with installing the rubber strips, piece would not lay flush..


I’m extremely satisfied with the fit kit. Strong and secure mounting, traveled 2300 miles and still tight and sturdy as the day I installed.


I just wanted to take a minute to thank Carol C for driving amazing customer service! I ordered a Thule rack system, and the Thule cross bars arrived with the packaging torn partially open, causing some of the cross bar end caps to be lost in transit. Worth noting, the cross bars were in Thule's original packaging, so this was in no way the fault of etrailer. Despite this being a Thule issue, Carol C sent me a new pack of end caps, which I really appreciate...Thanks!


Imagine that…. Easy step by step instructions!!! Had it assembled and on the car in under an hour. Great product, great quality!


Fast shipping, easy installation, excellent quality, highly recommended company and product.


Fit my 2015 Kia Sorento perfectly


These work great on my Jeep Wrangler hard top along with the square cross bars


only problem is that that roof rack is very noisy when we have two kayaks attached.


Watched a video and worked through it, went on great and looks awesome on vehicle


Expedited delivery and confirmed the right fit for Thule Kit - very helpful, fast, and part works perfectly

by: was excellent to do business with. Their website is informative, complete and easy to navigate. Phone service to help confirm availability of my product and their general knowledge of their products was impressive. Product arrived on time and in good shape. Their order tracking system is also very good. I’m very pleased with the Thule Wingbar Evo 135 racks For my BMW X5 with flush roof rails. They are super sturdy, solidly mounted and look good on the vehicle. Mine will be mainly used for surfboards and SUP’s. The assembly and installation was a breeze. The included written instructions would have been sufficient for a seamless installation but I also watched one of many YouTube videos that demonstrated very clearly every step of assembly and installation for this specific set of racks.
Love the racks!! I highly recommend for your roof rack needs.

  • Can Two Thule Hullavator Kayak Carriers Fit on Thule Wingbar for 2022 Kia EV6
    When using the widest kayak the Thule Hullavator # TH898 can fit it can take up to 28-1/2 inches of crossbar space. The widest kayak this can fit is 36 inches. So what that means is that there's a pretty good chance the 50 inch crossbar Thule Wingbar Evo kit part numbers # TH711320, # TH710501, # TH48ZE would fit. We can't confirm whether or not a longer bar option would also work. The attachment channels on the bottom of the bars does not run the full length of the bar which means longer...

  • Thule Roof Rack for 2022 Kia EV6 to Carry Thule Hullavator
    The Thule Wingbar Evo roof rack part numbers # TH711320, # TH710501, # TH48ZE that fits your 2022 Kia EV6 is compatible with the Thule Hullavator kayak carrier part # TH898. This would provide enough overhang for the rack to fit and work great.
