Can I use Thule Podium Bases with My Rhino Rack Aero Crossbars on my 2019 Mazda CX-5


Hi would a thule foot podium for cx5 flush rail work with rhino rack aero bar? I ask because I have a rhino rack aero bar but only know of thule foot that can fit my flush rails. Thanks!

I have a complete kit as a solution with Thule but unfortunately the Rhino Rack Aero Crossbars like part # RRVA106B-2 will not work with the Thule Rapid Podium Feet. There is enough of a difference that there is no way to guarantee the weight ratings of two different manufacturer's parts. I do not have a Rhino Rack Fit Kit to match your vehicle either.

Instead the entire roof rack is the way to go. This includes the three following parts.

Thule WingBar Evo 47" Crossbars part # TH711220
Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars part # TH460R
Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet part # THKIT3160

Check out the installation video below on a CX-7.
