AEROBLADE™ Technology:

  • WindDiffuser™ - is a textured surface on the t-slot cover that disturbs the airflow better than a smooth surface, greatly reducing wing noise.
  • BoxBeam™ - The sophisticated BoxBeam aluminum extrusion creates one of the strongest load bars in the market. Using a vertical load test, the AeroBlade can sustain over 800 lbf of force.
  • SmartSlide™ – The new SmartSlide™ is a molded measurement system providing a quick, no-hassle, tapemeasure-free foot installation. SmartSlide™ also covers the underbar slot to improve aerodynamics and noise diffusion.
  • SwingBlade™ – The new SwingBlade™ end cap pivots open to allow full access to the t-slot for easy accessory installs.
