rhino rack stealth bar

The low-profile, aerodynamic Rhino-Rack Vortex StealthBar roof rack lets you carry gear and accessories on your vehicle's roof quietly and with little wind drag. The crossbars mounts directly to your vehicle's raised, factory side rails. The Vortex StealthBars have built-in rubber strips that disrupt airflow for a quiet ride, and the bar is constructed of aluminum so it won't rust. These bars blend seamlessly with the support legs to provide a from-the-factory look, and they are custom cut to your specific vehicle. The legs also include built-in locks that protect your gear and the rack from theft.

Aerodynamic Design


The rubberized Vortex strips in the crossbar's top channel disrupt airflow with evenly spaced, wave-shaped grooves. This carefully controlled turbulence minimizes wind noise and whistling, so you won't need to add a fairing to your roof rack. And the slim, elliptical Vortex StealthBar cuts through the air with minimal drag - even at highway speeds.

The Vortex StealthBar roof rack has a flush-mount design so the crossbar terminates at the legs with no overhang. This provides the rack with a seamless, from-the-factory look, and it also helps to improve aerodynamics by reducing drag and wind noise.

Strong, Durable Construction


The Vortex StealthBar is made of structural-grade anodized aluminum with an H-shaped internal extrusion. This extrusion strengthens the bar without adding significant amount of weight. And the aluminum bar wont rust so you can leave it on your roof year-round.

The rack's durable, glass-reinforced nylon legs are designed to stand up to cargo loads and weather extremes. They're also UV treated to withstand long-term exposure to sunlight.

Custom Fit for Easy Installation

stealth bar design

The roof rack arrives at your doorstep almost completely assembled. The crossbar is already mounted into the nylon legs, and the bar is pre-cut to match the width of your vehicle's roof. The few remaining assembly steps are straightforward and only require the strap and lock fit kit.

The fit kit includes co-molded, rubber-coated stainless steel straps designed to fit around your raised, factory side rails. To install, remove the leg covers and simply attach the straps to the bottom of each leg. Then wrap the straps around your vehicle's side rails. Lastly, secure the straps to the top of each leg and replace the cover.

Channel-Mounted and Clamp-On Accessories

c channel

Each crossbar has a built-in C-channel so you can carry channel-mounted accessories such as bike racks, watersports carriers, and ski racks. The Vortex strips in the top channel come in 3 pieces, so theyre easier to adjust than a single long, continuous strip. You can remove, trim, and re-insert the Vortex strips around the mounting hardware of your accessories to keep the channel capped and quiet. Replacement strips (sold separately) are also available if you remove your accessories or switch to clamp-on accessories.

You can also attach most clamp-on accessories to the bars, and the Vortex strips provide a shock-absorbing, no-slip cushion for any accessories that rest on them.

Built-In Security

crossbar security

Locking covers on each support leg let you secure accessories mounted in the crossbar's top channel. These sturdy nylon covers give the rack a finished look and also secure the rack to your vehicle's roof. The cover locks are keyed a like, so a single key opens all locks.

Review from a similar Vortex StealthBar in Roof Rack

Everything went as planned and follow up was awesome. I told my rep I needed product by a set date he went and saw they had the product in stock before he took my order and it was delivered as promised. Geoffrey sent a follow up email with his phone number to see if I got the product and needed advice on install. Great customer support. 591496

Review from a similar Vortex StealthBar in Roof Rack

Great job etrailer!!!! I received a phone call from etrailer about my credit card. Once all was cleared, I received my crossbars in 2 days. I was surprised how quickly I received them.. Installing the crossbars was pretty simple. The first one always takes a little longer; reading the instructions; going slow, making sure I am doing everything right. The second bar took half the time, if that much. The outside noise that other customers complain about, is none existant unless I am traveling over 70mph.Definitely recommend the product. 474006

Review from a similar Vortex StealthBar in Roof Rack

Product fit well, easy to install. I received a new Ford Expedition at work with an aluminum roof. I have an emergency light with magnetic mounts that will not work on the aluminum roof. Purchased these bars and used them to mount the light without having to put holes in the roof. 682621

Review from a similar Vortex StealthBar in Roof Rack

Appears to be a well made product. I wanted a low profile rail. I would have preferred a clamp style cross bar, like the Yakiima Whispbar, but they were to wide for my Thule Evolution (ski box), mounting brackets. You need to be careful when attaching the straps when attaching to the bracket and mounting to the rail. The exposed metal portion is very sharp. The only con is see to this product is the strap mounting system, its more of a hassle to adjust. 461828

Review from a similar Vortex StealthBar in Roof Rack

Pretty simple to install. I did need to adjust the length of the crosssbars to accommodate the diverging rails on my Flex. It worked great. The straps take a little effort to wrap around the rails but that was as difficult as it got. 614131

Review from a similar Vortex StealthBar in Roof Rack

When I ordered this product I was excited to see the reviews said how fast it shipped. I was not so lucky. The item was back ordered and the website did not indicate that. I received an email saying it would ship in a week so I thought it would arrive in a week. I was wrong. When I called about compatibility with attachments they told me it was back ordered and I wouldn't receive it until mid July. That whole ship in a week meant ship from the distributor to etrailer. Then it would ship to me. Once it arrived we immediately opened it up and started assembling it. When we got to the part in the directions about attaching it to the car the directions said to go to Rhino-Racks website to find out what hole in the y-straps to use for my particular vehicle. Their website does not have an area with a fitment guide as the directions indicate so I had to call. I spoke with Jeff at Rhino-Rack and he said hole number 3. That was impossibly tight and the strap would not reach. I called back to see if hole 2 two would be acceptable and he said it should be hole 3. Well, we went with hole 2 because there was NO way hole 3 would reach the bolt since steel does not stretch. Upon attaching the strap around the raised roof rails the strap slipped and I quickly found out the steel loop is as sharp as a kitchen knife as it sliced the tip of my finger. It was cut so deeply and cleanly it took over an hour to stop the bleeding. I called Jeff back to let him know about this problem. Aside from thanking me for letting him know, he did nothing to better the situation. I will say, now that my finger isn't gushing blood and the cross bars are securely attached to my 2015 Hyundai Tucson in hole number 2 on all four of the y-straps, I am pleased with the appearance and how quiet they are when driving. Some cons, aside from the aforementioned: -The rubber strip caved in when I strapped one kayak just to the cross bars. I will need to order a new one to prevent water from getting inside and to prevent noise. It is very disappointing when you have something for less than a week and you need to replace parts on it. -The locks are super cheap and it wouldn't take much for someone to break them if they really wanted my cross bars. -The options for attachments are very limited. In fact, I almost sent these back because I was having a hard time finding kayak attachments that I liked. I wouldn't order these again knowing the hassle I've gone through with them. 278238

Review from a similar Vortex StealthBar in Roof Rack

The stealth bars are sturdy and low noise. But they are so close to the roof of my 2016 Escort that the knobs for attaching the J-hook kayak carrier rub the roof. I put a eighth inch hard rubber pad between the rails and the crossbars and removed some of the unthreaded portion of the knobs to make them fit to my satisfaction. 275252

Review from a similar Vortex StealthBar in Roof Rack

Looks like good quality product. The only problem was I didn't know what hole to use on locking strap, called Rhinorack.com headquarters. They quickly got info I needed for my vehicle. Wish there was an insert with that info. 239461

You can find this information in the installation instuructions. For reference we have these linked on the product page.

    To install a set of Thule Aeroblade crossbars on a 2015 Subaru Outback with flush rails that requires the following products. The 47 inch crossbars part # TH711200, the Podium Aero Foot part # TH460R (which you may have already), and the fit kit part # THKIT4035. I believe you may already have the correct bars and feet but would only need the fit kit. For that you'd need the part # THKIT4063 by itself and you'd be good.
