    • Tracks mount to your vehicle roof with T-bolts - some drilling required

    • Bars mount to roof-rack legs using built-in channels on bottoms of bars
    • Lightweight, structural-grade, extruded aluminum construction for strength, durability and maximum carrying capability
  • Built-in C-channel on top of each bar lets you mount Rhino-Rack accessories and carriers
  • Rubber strips in the channels help to cushion load and provide slip resistance
    • Can be cut to accommodate track-mounted accessories and carriers

The bases of these Rhino Rack legs easily mount into the included Rhino-Rack RTC-style roof rack tracks with included hardware. Just slide the nuts into the tracks, line up the mounting plates, and bolt the bases down. After this initial setup, you can leave the bases in the tracks.


Rhino Rack Quick Mount Base

Molded inserts help keep out dirt and provide a finished look when there are no legs and crossbars installed. To install a leg, simply remove the insert.


Rhino Rack remove the cover

Once you've set up the bases, installing and removing your roof rack is easy. The Quick Mount legs have an integrated trigger system that creates an easy, tool-free installation.


Rhino Rack internal triggers

To install a leg in a base, pinch and slide the internal triggers together.


Rhino Rack place leg on track

Lower the leg onto the base and slide the internal triggers apart to secure the leg in the base.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


I purchased the Rhino Rack roof rack as an alternative to the factory installed products and the more popular Thule and Yakima brands. The Rhino Rack is solid and sleek and is largely silent while driving (if I have the roof open you can hear a soft whistle). Not only does the rack look fantastic, but the non-slip top and the strong bars make carrying things on top a real pleasure. 837664

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


Overall I like the rack. Aero bars are quiet, rubber grip strip on top is nice. Product is high quality. My only gripe is the mounting feet and it’s fit on the Mercedes Metris. Each foot is only able to utilize one bolt hole on the factory placed mounts. Using 2 per foot would be much better like in most other applications I imagine. But once it’s all assembled and installed (which is very easy) it seems fine. Height spacer blocks are perfect, bars are all on the same plane. Looks good too! etrailer also has real people working customer support who answer the phone and help you out. I highly recommend the rack and buying from etrailer! 756541

These Rhino Rack low profile aero cross bars gave us the look that we were going for. Wind noise is minimal if noticeable at all. The Rhino Rack roof rack fit on top of the cross bars perfectly. Great product. 553488

Great roof rails. They sit relatively low to the roof; which combined with the Aero profile give a great look. 226575

Delivery was a little slower then I would have liked, but otherwise it was perfect. Great customer service when I called to ask about them. Make sure you read the instructions when you install (I didn't and wasted an hour fooling around with the wrong parts) other then that, the install was smooth as silk. 424344

Fit is good, sturdy rack, video instructions are great and easy to put on. Locks are not that great but will work for me. If someone really wanted to get to the bolt they could easily break the lock covers but then they would have to have the correct wrench. I would still recommend this as a great after market rack. 588056

So far so good. The Aero 2500 racks went on in a couple of hours as I was not in a rush, wanted to do it properly and understand all I needed to to remove and reinstall these in the future. I did manage to get the Rhinorack logo facing backward on the front and forward on the back. Sorry, didn’t intend to but I’m not going to reverse them at this point. I did not take pics of these on my 2017 Prius. But they look good, less clunky than my old square Thule racks. 512463

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


These things are strong and quiet! I have them mounted on my Land Rover Discovery Sport using the SRB legs by Rhino Rack. I've had furniture, lumber, ladders, tools, canoe, and a roof rack piled up there at some point or another and I don't have to worry about them slipping at all!!!! I've done this so much that the rubber strips are showing some wear and have frayed a bit where they've pinched the aluminum, but it's still rock solid. That's my only grip. Hopefully the replacement strips are affordable when I replace them in a year or two. I'd buy another Rhino Rack product in a heartbeat. They look great on my car and are strong and quiet on the road. I feel I made the right choice. 604273


Comments
These bars are hanging in there and holding on strong! My Discovery Sport is in the elements 99.9 of the time and the paint on these crossbars is not faded and there is no rust. The rubber seems to be holding up in the hot Louisiana sun. Ive pinched the very grippy rubber strips with heavy loads, so that is showing some wear, but otherwise its rock solid. The plastic endcaps dont feel brittle and theyre still quiet and strong. Thank yall for a great product for this vehicle!

Excellent price and quick shipping. Excellent support for missing bar end cap. Rack was easy to put together and install and video was helpful. My only complaint is when trying to tie down kayak to cradle it is not easy to keep the loop over the top of the upright "U" shaped bar, it keeps siding down. We wrapped two pieces of foam around the bar to create a channel to hold the strap now it is easy. 557941

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


I was looking for a good looking product to carry my two kayaks with our camper. the product arrived in the time they said it would and was packed very well. after reading other reviews on assembly it was suggested that you read the directions first. after reading the directions I couldn't find some rubber strips so I called you company and they were very friendly and helpful and I found them I just didn't look in the right place. then started to assembly the roof racks and within 25 min. they were installed. would recommend the product and company. 411346

My Rhino-Rack Aero 2500 roof racks fit solidly on my 2007 Honda Civic EX. I was really impressed with the construction and strength of the rack system. Also the versatility of the 'legs' with a swivel pad allow them to fit any roof pitch perfectly. The clamps are so solid, nothing could knock these racks off. I added a paddleboard attachment and went surfing today. The black racks also look great with the black trim on my silver Honda. Great product at a much better price than Yakima or Thule. 395557

I'm absolutely in love with Katie, my sales consultant for her great help & excellent follow up. Fully expecting cheap Chinese junk. I was delighted with the quality of the product, (Rhino Rack) which was received day after New Years. Pretty cool when order was placed Dec 29th. Simple illustrated instructions made pre assembly a snap. Wind chill is 2 below zero so I'm going to wait a day or so to mount to car. Two thumbs up from me! 331614

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


These crossbars were easy to install, are sturdy when installed and look great on my factory side rails when installed with the SX Series legs. The standard end caps are an all-plastic affair and use a little key to engage a cam lock. That plus the distance from the end of the crossbar to the nut that tightens the foot onto the rail keeps things relatively secure. Most people probably want to opt for proper locking end caps, though. The rubber vortex strips look nice and give items something grippy to rest on. I haven't tried a load test yet but did drive around in moderate wind on the highway in multiple directions. Other than a slight whistle at 70 mph, you'd never know they were there. Overall, real happy with the product and looking forward to hauling some stuff around with them. 248807

After finally obtaining the correct roof rack for a 2012 Chevy Impala, installation was fairly easy, and the finished installation appears very secure. We did do a test run with a kayak attached, which was both stable and quiet (3 photos attached showing final installation before test run). 388669

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


I love my Rhino Vortex roof racks. They look great, are sturdy, and there is no wind noise up to 70 mph (haven't been on the freeway yet). eTrailer was great and made the proper component selection easy. Now, the -1 star... The instructions provided by Rhino were horrible or non-existent. The cross bar literally had no instructions and I couldn't even find them for my model online. Between being a handy guy and watching other Rhino videos on YouTube, I figure it out. Maybe most people have professional installers put them on. 375802

Love the Rhino rack! Sometimes I think I could stand the truck Grand Cherokee upside down on it! It was a little tricky to install, but once I found YouTube vids I was good to go.

  • Installing Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System # Y02-480B-ST on 2016 Toyota Tacoma
    When installing the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System # Y02-480B-ST on your 2016 Toyota Tacoma you will first remove the Ditch Mould and seals that are covering the factory channels on the roof. You are correct that the Rhino-Rack tracks will then be secured to these channels with the included hardware, essentially taking the place of the removed seals/mould. This will leave you with a really versatile and durable system that can support up to 220 pounds. I have attached the written installation...

  • Rhino-Rack Crossbar System for Retrax XR Tonneau Cover Channels
    The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System # Y02-480B-ST that you referenced will technically work to mount to the integrated rails on your Retrax XR Tonneau Cover, however we can provide a better option that doesn't leave you stuck with unnecessary rails. What you can do is simply piece together the system (without the rails) using the Quick Mount Legs # RRRLT600 and a set of Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, such as the the 54" # RRVA137B-2 that come included with the system you were looking...

  • Recommended Rhino Rack Camper Shell Rack for my 5.5' Truck Bed Topper.
    Yes the Rhino-Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack for Camper Shells part # Y02-480B-ST will allow for the slight contour of your truck topper. The track length is as you stated 63" so you have to have at least that amount but if you're slightly over you're in good shape.

  • Track Style Roof Rack to Fit Camper Shell 60 inch by 48 inch
    For a Rhino Rack roof rack that uses shorter tracks you'd need to piece the kit together as the kits that come with everything all have longer tracks than you'll want. So for tracks the part # RTC14 would be what you'd want. Then for legs you'd want the part # RRRLTFLC, and for bars part # RRVA137B-2.
