Comparing Different Thule Roof Racks that Fit 2019 Kia Sorento

Question:

Ive researched Thule roof racks for carrying my kayaks on 2019 Kia Sorento and Im leaning toward the Aeroblade Edge to reduce wind noise. I know that Thule has 2 other roof racks that would work with my flush mount integrated roof rails on my Sorento. Do you have any recommendations pros/cons of the Aeroblade Edge versus the other 2 THule roof racks options for my vehicle?

Helpful Expert Reply:

For your 2019 Kia Sorento there are three roof rack options from Thule with that have unique advantages. The advantage of the square bar roof rack part numbers # TH712200, # TH710601, and # TH186033 compared to other options is price. It won't be as quiet or as sleek looking as other options and doesn't have a track that runs down the top of the bars for channel mounting ability either.

Next we have the Wingbar Evo roof rack part number # TH711200, # TH710601, # TH186033 which has the best shape for aerodynamics which reduces wind noise. It also has a longer bar length than an Aeroblade Edge so you can fit more roof accessories.

Then there's the Aeroblade Edge roof rack part numbers # TH186033 and # TH7602-TH7602. This is the sleekest and quietest design as the bars do not extend past the feet of the rack and they sit a little lower. The trade off is a bit less bar space to mount accessories as the available space is 35 inches instead of 47. This looks the most like an OEM roof rack.
