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 etrailer.com. 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..

At the very last minute on beginning an 11 hour trip to Florida I needed a Thule windscreen. After checking with all local stores with no luck I decided to check with etrailer. Sure enough they had one in stock for me to pay 2 day delivery. The unit came right on time however it was missing two of the fasteners. After buying 2 screws and wing nuts I was on my way. Now the great part I received an email asking my opinion of the product. In mentioning the missing parts I received them overnight to my new address. Thank you etrailer!!!

Great fit, looks super cool on on e30 ix, and genuinely reduces wind noise by a good bit. Wish I bought it sooner.

Came with a missing part. Missing Part number is 870200. My order Number is 112103361. I made it work with a spare bolt and nut. But now it does not match. Send me a new piece please.
For $xxx not including tax, it should have extra parts.. It’s a plastic part, the part I found myself and used will actually last longer. But still does not match, unless I get all new matching hardware or send me the the replacement part..!. It would have been a 5-10 min thing to put together if it wasn’t for the missing part. I don’t have a garage or a shop so I had to dig through some crap to find something that would work and went to the hard ware store to find a washer and nut.

Simple assembly and light. Installed to reduce noise w/ square Thule bars...(eliminated whistle and hum greatly)

Review from a similar AirScreen XT Fairing in Accessories and Parts


This works very well on my 2019 JEEP Wrangler Unlimited. I use it when I have kayaks on the roof. It is mounted on the Thule rack system, at the "B" post.
Very easy to install, well worth the money.

Review from a similar AirScreen XT Fairing in Accessories and Parts


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.

Review from a similar AirScreen XT Fairing in Accessories and Parts


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.

Review from a similar AirScreen XT Fairing in Accessories and Parts


I put this on the Thule wing bar under a Thule roof box and drove 1000 miles on a ski trip. It cut the noise in half. At 75 mph into the wind is the worst case and still a bit loud so I also added a rope around the wing bar for maximum airflow disruption. I wouldn't change my choice to have the Jeep soft top one touch Skyroof so it's loud anyway. The Airscreen made the noise much less.

You mentioned that it was noisier with it on then with it off and I have a few questions that I wanted to ask. How long are your cross bars? What are you carrying on your roof rack? Would it be possible to send a picture of it installed?

Review from a similar AirScreen XT Fairing in Accessories and Parts


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.
