Video Transcript for Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2015 Kia Sportage

Speaker 1: Today on our 2015 Kia Sportage we'll be taking a look at and showing you how to install Rhino Rack Roof Rack Kit. This is going to consist of the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, part number RRVA126B-2, the 2500 Series Legs, part number RRRLKVA, and our fit kit for our Sportage, part number DK259. Now keep in mind that our crossbars are also available in silver, part number RRVA126S-2.The Rhino Rack Roof Rack System is a great solution for carrying your vehicle accessories on your roof, whether those are bike racks, ski and snowboard carrier, or cargo baskets. It's going to allow you to free up space inside your vehicle for more gear or more passengers. The aerodynamic shape of our crossbars is going to help to reduce wind noise and drag, and that weather strip on the inside is going to help along with that as well.If we remove our end cap you'll see that our weather strip is easy to remove and we can cut it down and place in channel mounted accessories. Unlike some other roof rack systems our end cap does have the option to lock this in place with our plastic lock core, which will help to prevent theft and tampering of any channel mounted accessories.

We can also replace that plastic lock core with a metal one. The end caps for our leg kit is going to allow us to prevent any theft or tampering of our roof rack system all together. It does lock into place, and it's going to protect our fit kit.Our fit kit is going to consist of our clamp as well as our pad. Any portion that touches our vehicle is going to have a rubber coating to prevent any scratches or abrasions, and it's going to be custom cut to fit our vehicle. This will give us a nice secure fit overall, and we won't have to worry about having to readjust our roof rack system if it moves.

The Rhino Rack Vortex roof rack system has a 165 pound weight capacity, though you do want to double check your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure your roof can withstand that much weight. It's also going to come with a limited lifetime warranty, and be quick and easy to install.We'll show you how to do that now. Now everything that you see on our table is what we will need to install our roof rack system. We already have our front bar in place, we're going to show you our back bar. The only thing we've provided ourselves is a flat tape measure to measure everything out.

We're going to have our included tool to tighten everything down, as well as our end caps for our legs. The key to lock our end cap for our cross bar, and the keys for our end caps for our legs, our end cap for our cross bars, the legs themselves, and then our fit kit which will include our pad as well as our clamp to secure everything to our roof.We'll start by taking our leg, and we're going to remove our bolt here in the center. Once we have that completely removed we can take our clamp and place it over where we just removed our bolt, and we'll tighten our bolt back down. We want to tighten this down just enough so that it holds our clamp into place, so then we can still adjust it around our roof. Then we'll flip our leg kit over and we'll take off the bottom piece.

We want to make sure that the arrow on the foot is facing towards the rear of our vehicle when we place it on. The arrow on the plastic part of our foot is going to face out, away from the inside of our cross bar.So we'll seal that together, making sure that all the holes are completely closed. Then we can place this onto our leg, and we'll place this onto our cross bar. We want to line up our nut on the bottom with our channel, slide that into place. Now I like to tighten it up just a bit so that my leg sits up straight. Now we'll measure out this insert area. We do have inserts that have measurements on them. This will be great if we want to reduce that wind noise and drag, we can place in inserts and cut them down, placing them on the outside and inside channel. But for demonstration purposes we're just going to use our flat tape measure and measure this out to 17.6 centimeters.All the measurements and the placement for each pad, as well as your clamp, will be in your instructions. Once we have that in place we can take our included tool and tighten that bolt down all the way. We'll finish off by placing on our cross bar end cap. Place it on, use our key, and lock it in place.Then we can take our cross bar, making sure that our pad's arrows are facing towards the rear. We want our clamp to sit around our doorjamb. Now we'll measure out our cross bar spread. This is going to be between the middle of the front clamp to the middle of the back. We want to make sure that it reads as the same measurement on each side. Now we'll tighten down our clamps. We're going to take our included tool and tighten down the bolt.I'll start by tightening it down so that my clamp sits just up against our doorjamb, and then we'll do the same thing to the other side. Once they're both even we'll go back and forth between each side, tightening them down evenly until we have a nice, secure fit. Now we'll know we have enough torque behind our bolt when the skinnier portion of our torque tool is completely straight, just like so. Now we can close up our vehicle doors and we'll finish off by placing on our end caps. Make sure we lock our end caps in place, and that's going to help to prevent theft and tampering of our entire roof rack system.Now we're ready to load up our gear and hit the road. That's going to be our completed look at the Rhino Rack roof rack system on our 2015 Kia Sportage.

Picked up the fit kit and vortex 2500 aero bars from etrailer. Added them to a Rhino Rack leg kit I got and everything went on perfectly. Can’t believe how solid the whole system feels. I have a box to put on the rack that will carry all my golf gear and hiking equipment for a three week tour of Utah and Colorado. Looking forward to traveling and actually having room inside the car to find things.
Thanks etrailer for the Awesome service (Noah was great) and the super fast shipping. I’ll be back when I need accessories.

This rack is very well made and easy to install. I was a little hesitant at first because of the price but you really get what you pay for. I load two 12' kayaks that take this rack close to it's weight limit and it's still rock solid.




by:

I received my all the parts for my roof rack installation to a bare roof. I quickly read through the instructions, identified all the parts, and started putting it together. It wasn't long and the installation was complete. The instructions were easy to understand and the product seems very durable.




by:

We purchased these with the crossbars and have been completely happy with them. We put a car top carrier on top and have had zero problems. The assembly was explained well and quick to do. Would recommend these to anyone who needs to post-factory bars on top of the car. We put them on a Kia Sportage and it looks great. We take it through the car wash often and haven't had any problems.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Installed this and 65" Vortex Areo crossbars on a 2015 RAM 5500 chassis cab/crew cab. It is listed to fit 1500 to 3500 RAM's and neither Rhino-Rack or etrailer would confirm it would fit the 5500. My research suggested there was not much, if any difference, between the 3500 and 5500 crew cab, so ordered it any way. Installation was relatively easy, fit seemed to be good and have made multiple 200-300 mile trips with a 75lb kayak. Good price, great customer service and fast delivery through etrailer.


Comments
Neither Rhino-Rack nor etrailer.com have tested the roof rack on a 5500 ChassisCab, which is why we couldnt confirm the fit.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


The rack was fairly easy to mount on my Durango. I was able to load my kayak from the side since I have a bike rack on the rear. I use a bathroom rug and flip the boat up on the car, then slide the boat directly onto the rack. I only carry it this way for short drives to local lakes. There is some wind noise at 50 mph.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


We originally got this rack system (Custom DK Fit Kit for 4 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Legs - Naked Roof Item #DK427) mostly for our Kayak racks on our 2015 Ford F-150, which worked great. Then we totaled our F-150 and the racks actually fit on our new 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 HD P/U. We took it on a 16,000 mile trip from the East Coast to Alaska with both 12 ft. kayaks on the top. Through the various speeds (sometimes up to 80 mph), weather conditions, and the high crosswinds of the mid-West, the racks help up perfectly. No issues or problems. I would recommend these to anyone.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I've had this Rhino Rack 2500 series for one year. I've outfitted the rack with one "J hook" style kayak holder and one "cradle" kayak holder. I am able to securely travel with two kayaks on the roof of my 2014 Honda Civic sedan without issue. During the one year I've had this rack I've traveled over 1,000 miles with two 12 foot+ kayaks on my roof. I can set cruise control at 70mph and not worry about the rack failing. I rate it four (4) stars because the cradles will sometimes move during a long drive and have to be readjusted. This is something that is more cosmetic in the since it looks slightly off, however it does not affect the racks security.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Fairly easy installation. Read the instructions thoroughly before hand and get familiar with the parts. Take care when installing mounting studs onto car itself so as not to strip or cross thread them. Once installed they look great.


Comments
Fantastic! Very little noise on highway and sturdy.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


After a year the rack has stood the test of time and daily use. I've set it properly and for the most part forgotten about it. I've used the rack to haul a ton of furniture properly tied down to my sedan's roof.Ive also postponed getting a larger car by gaining space in the roof box. I still recommend this product.




by:

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Fit my Honda CRV perfectly and the whole kit was easy to install. The cargo box I ordered for in the racks perfectly. Of course there was some noise when traveling, and also reduced gas mileage, but that is to be expected. The very slight whistle when driving at higher speeds was easy to tune out. Service from etrailer was great and shipping was quick! I also appreciate all of the information and tutorials available. Would order from this company again.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I bought these to be able to haul 4 kayaks on the roof of my 2017 Ram Mega cab while pulling our fifth wheel. We have use the Rhino Rack several times including a trip from Kentucky to Montana and back with no issues. I highly recommend the Rhino Rack for extra cargo capacity on top of your pickup. The instructions were good and installation was pretty straight forward. I plan to take the system off in the winter which will be easy to do.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I bought this last yr to haul my kayaks on my Toyota camry. Being 5'2", getting them on top of my SUV was next to impossible for me and my daughters. Since then, I have traveled from Michigan, all the way to the west coast with two 13' ft kayaks. These racks have been absolutely perfect in every aspect. I mounted them myself, and checked them regularly to see if they needed adjusted. Not once did they loosen or move. They with stood Traveling with speed limits reaching 80 mph on I84, along with the windy weather on our cross-country trip. My car moved around from the high winds, and the racks stayed put. These racks have by far reached and surpassed every expectation I had when purchasing them. I would not recommend another. Only thing I would recommend is showing installation for both front and back bars, since the measurements are slightly different for both. As I had to figure this out my self, after watching the installation video. Thank you Rhino for providing such a high quality product.

Great product. I put the removable racks and brackets on my car as soon as I received them in the mail and have not removed them since. They are used everyday to hold my Yakima rooftop box.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


From the minute Erica, from etrailer answered the phone and took my order, the process of getting my new Rhino-Rack 2500 was easy. Once my auto body shop installed the rack, I saw what a quality product the Rhino-Rack 2500 is. It fits my 2017 Toyota Corolla like it was from the factory. It looks great on the car and the functionality is excellent. I love it and highly recommend etrailer and Rhino-Rack products

As you can tell by the photo, they never came. Thank you [vendor] for having a tow hitch basket in stock. They saved the day as my other storage option did not arrive, even with the additional $$ paid for faster shipping.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I’ve never had a Rhino Rack before. Much of the rack is plastic, but seems secure and looks nice. I’m grateful, because this is the only rack built to fit my Toyota Rav 4 . It’s not noisy and doesn’t seem to affect my mileage

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Very impressed with this rack system so far! Was hesitant at first based on some reviews talking about wind noise, but with the windows up I can hear almost no difference. The noise isolating strips are inside the rack after removing the end cap, so be sure to give them a good shake before assuming they are missing (as per the instructions). Very sturdy and assembled easily.

Mounted on 2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD. Excellent fit. Looks clean on truck. Sturdy. Small amount of noise. I would buy again and recommend to others. Price far better than some of the big names for the same quality.

Great system and works seamlessly with Thule Hulavator on 2018 Ram 2500. Bailey was a big help in putting the system together for me.

  • Roof Rack for 2013 Kia Sportage that Has Locks for Feet of Rack to Flush Rails
    The locks on the Rola roof racks will lock accessories to the crossbars but if someone happened to have the right size allen wrench and knew what they were doing they could remove the bar from your vehicle and the lock wouldn't have any effect on that. Since most roof accessories have locks already the locks of the Rola kit aren't as helpful as one might like. But this is one of the more value priced roof racks which might be why the features aren't quite as thought out. A rack that has...

  • Recommendation for Roof Rack on 2011 Kia Sportage
    For your 2011 Kia Sportage with a naked roof, or a roof without OEM front-to-back rails, the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack 59849 you referenced would not be a compatible fit as it needs front-to-back side rails to be mounted on your vehicle. I recommend the Rhino-Rack consisting of crossbars # RRVA126B-2, feet # RRRLKVA, and custom fit kit # DK259. This roof rack, once installed, will allow you to use a cargo carrier, bike rack, or a kayak carrier on the roof. The roof rack has a weight...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2012 Kia Sportage with Flush Roof Rails
    My contact at Thule confirmed that the black rubber strips on the roof of your 2012 Kia Sportage do not provide (or cover) an attachment point for their Podium roof rack system. Your car can be fitted with a roof rack, one designed for what we call a naked roof, but none of the options comes from Thule so the parts you have purchased cannot be adapted to your car. You can see roof rack options for your Sportage by clicking on the linked page. For a cost-effective square bar system like...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2012 Kia Sportage with Naked Roof by Rhino Rack
    The only roof rack solution I can provide for your 2012 Kia Sportage is the Rhino Rack roof rack that consists of part numbers # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK259. I can't recommend a longer crossbar setup.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Kia Sportage
    For a roof rack compatible for your 2011 Kia Sportage with a naked roof I would recommend the following products: 49 inch crossbars # RRVA126B-2 Feet # RRRLKVA Custom Fit Kit # DK259 Regardless if you have flush rails or a totally naked roof the above mentioned roof rack components will work for you.

  • Roof Rack Recommendations for a 2014 Kia Sportage
    For your 2014 Kia Sportage we have just what you would need. The roof racks we offer will cost much less than the Kia rack and will work just as well. Now if you have a totally naked roof you would want the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK259 to complete a custom fit rack that is easy on the wallet. If instead you have flush mounted roof rack rails on the roof of the vehicle you would instead want the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX023.

This roof rack system consists of # RRVA126B-2 for the two 49 inch long Aero Crossbars, # RRRLKVA for the 2500 Series Legs, and # DK259 for the Fit Kit.

    For a roof rack for your 2013 Kia Sportage with a naked roof the Rhino Rack roof rack that consists of part numbers # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK259 would be the best option. This is a custom fit roof rack for your vehicle that has a great price as well.
