Thule SquareBar Roof Rack Fit on 2022 Honda CR-V With Flush Side Rails


I just got a 2022 Honda CR-V, with the optional Honda flush roof rails the ones that are stock on the Touring version. I have some older Thule rack fittings made to fit the older square cross section rails. These rails were rectangular, closed tubes no slots. I really want to continue using these fittings. bike mount, kayak hullavator. Are the current Thule SquareBar Evo rails the same size as the old square rails and would they be compatible with my older fittings? If so, what components would I need to mount the square rails onto the Honda? Thanks!

I have good news for you as yes, the newest Thule SquareBar Evo crossbars are physically the exact same size as the previous Thule square crossbars, 1-1/4" wide x 7/8" tall. So you can use your previous accessories with these crossbars without any issue.

I verified with Thule for you that the exact parts you will need for their square bar roof rack on your 2022 Honda CR-V consists of the following:

- Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbars # TH712200

- Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH460R

- Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet # THKIT3166

For added security if you want to lock the rack to your '22 CR-V, you can add lock cores to the Rapid Podium feet with the Thule One-Key Lock Cylinders # TH450400. The only other thing I recommend considering is a wind fairing to minimize any wind noise from the square crossbars, with the right fit being the AirScreen XT # TH72WV.
