The low-profile, aerodynamic Rhino-Rack ROC25 roof rack lets you carry gear and accessories on your vehicle's roof quietly and with little wind drag. It's designed for installation on a naked roof (a roof without factory raised side rails, flush rails, fixed mounting points, tracks, or rain gutters). The rack's Vortex Aero crossbar has built-in rubber strips that disrupt airflow for a quiet ride, and the bar is constructed of aluminum so it won't rust. This bar blends seamlessly with the support legs to provide a from-the-factory look, and it is custom cut to your specific vehicle so it requires no adjustment during installation. The legs also include built-in locks that protect your gear and the rack from theft.


Aerodynamic Design

The rubberized Vortex strips in the top channel of the crossbar 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 Aero crossbar cuts through the air with minimal drag - even at highway speeds.


The ROC25 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

Rhino-Rack Vortex H-shaped extrusion

The Vortex Aero crossbar is made of structural-grade anodized aluminum with an H-shaped internal extrusion. This extrusion strengthens the bar without adding a significant amount of weight. And the aluminum bar won't 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

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, so you won't need to waste any time centering it. The few remaining assembly steps are straightforward and require only the vehicle-specific fit kit.


The vehicle-specific fit kit includes pads and clamps specifically designed to fit the contours of your roof. To install, simply attach the pivoting plates and rubberized pads to the bottom of each leg. Then secure the legs to your vehicle with the metal clamps. Decals inside the legs and a diagram in the instructions help you to orient the crossbar on your roof.


Once the crossbar is properly positioned, use the included Allen key to tighten it in place. The Allen key is designed to serve as a simple torque wrench. The curve in the blue plastic handle straightens when you've applied enough torque to each bolt.


Channel-Mounted and Clamp-On Accessories

The crossbar has a built-in C-channel so you can carry channel-mounted accessories such as bike racks, watersport carriers, and ski racks. The Vortex strips in the top channel come in 3 pieces, so they're 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 crossbar 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 bar, and the Vortex strips provide a shock-absorbing, no-slip cushion for any accessories that rest on it.


Built-In Security

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

The package arrived on time and I'm happy to report that its met all of my expectations. The build quality and finishing are excellent and I really like the black, low profile design of the rack. I also watched an installation YouTube video specifically on the Vortex ROC25 for VW Golf and it is really straight-forward. The racks are already cut to the right size for my vehicle and the only tool I needed was a pair of scissors to cut the rubber cover for the rack gutter. Highly recommend this.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


This review is for the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Aluminum-Silver crossbars and associated legs and custom fit kit (RRVA137s-2, DK284, RRRLKVA) necessary for a naked roof installation on a 2018 Honda CR-V. Just enter the model and year of your vehicle and etrailers website will tell you exactly what additional items are necessary to complete the install. etrailers installation instructions and videos are very helpful. The installation document provided is for more than one vehicle and for more than one style rack, so take your time to understand witch measurements apply to your installation and refer to the installation video if necessary. ON that note: The measurements given for front rack did not fit as nicely on the roof as the rear rack, I adjusted the the front rack measurements slightly. I would suggest trial fitting on your vehicle before cutting the metric rulers to final length. Stick On tags are supplied to indicate front, rear and the location to install on your vehicle. Once the rails are adjusted and tagged you can remove and reinstall the racks very quickly. Korren was very helpful in keeping me informed as to availability of items in stock and email shipping tracking. I am very satisfied with etrailers customer service and happy with the appearance and functionality of the Rhino racks.


Comments
I am still very satisfied after a year of using the Rhino-Rack. I have used it about 8 times transporting my kayak with no issues. The longest trip was about 45 miles, part of it was interstate driving at 75 mph. Stays tight on the roof with very slight wind noise.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I give all 5 stars for the product and service, but...I prefer the parts to be all in one carboard, also I was a little panicking looking for blue plastic key...It was inside of cross-bar ??not falling out with strips. Anyway, I"m owner of Honda cr-v 2022 with bare roof ,and I just installed the rack. Was it simple enough? Yes,so I can share this: First, rubber pads are all the same, and after placements to plastic legs should be placed with arrow*out*-that is it(a lot of info regarding vertical parts, that they are all different)?? Second, on other hand, in video we informed that clamps are same -they are not. Bigger "hooks" are for rear bar, smaller ones-for the front one. Third, do not expect precision in rubber pads position(especially on rear bar)regarding plastic rail strips on bare roof.it is not achievable, just try to make same look on both sides. I was worried about rain and water gets inside. Well, let us see. What I plan to care on rack? Just a small 6ft step ladder. Believe me or no CR-V is my business vehicle ,and ladder carry was the goal of rack purchase. And only question I have if I can get to underground parking with no problems to cross the front entries usually limited with 6 ft in heights I will find out soon, but rack height plus ladder on it makes me worry.??The review will be update soon. regards.


Comments
Thank you for your review on the installation of your rack. If the garage has a clearance of 6 feet, you will not be able to park there with your CR-V with the rack on. The CR-V itself is 5.5 feet tall.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


At first I didn’t know how to get the end pieces off because I thought it was locked and didn’t know where the key was. After pulling one of the ends pieces off, I saw that the blue key was inside the crossbar next to the measuring strips. Took me a minute but figured that part out, but the instructions were easy to follow. Can’t wait to test it out on my Kayaks! I have this installed on my Toyota Corolla LE 2013.

This has endeared Mn winters and transporting kayaks back and forth from lakes and cabins and it still looks good! I highly recommend the investment!

Great Roof Rack! It is super quiet when driving down the road even when going 75+ mph. Exceeded all my expectations. I paired mine with the Rhino Rack Hybrid Bike Carrier (RBC050). I’m able to fully open my hatchback (2018 Honda Civic 5dr) and it looks great as well.

Just what I was looking for for my 2021 MB Metris Cargo Van with Raised Rails, for hauling a 14-foot SUP. I wanted as low profile as possible and the Rhino Rack SX Series Legs and Aero Crossbars looked best. Relatively easy to set up.

The cross bars assembled easily and with some assistance mounted to the car perfectly. I just got them on tonight and am going to be doing a bit of driving tomorrow and will report back with any noise issues. I do not expect any issues. I have purchased a few things for the same vehicle from etrailer and have been pleased all around with each.

I have no complaints. The rack has added a level of versatility to my Pilot. Great quality materials.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I have been using etrailer for many years and have never had a bad purchase. We are about to start traveling quite a bit with our 5th wheel. Putting our kayaks on the back of the trailer was not an option. I researched several roof top carriers and this package was by far the best value and quality. The Rhino rack is awesome, works extremely well with kayak "J" carriers and installed relatively easy. There was an issue with the measurements for the underside channel covers. For my Ram, they were short. But I always use the old adage of measure 2, 3 or 4 times. Cut once. Saved me a few problems here. As alway7s with etrailer, we are very pleased with the product, the serv ice and the information before purchasing.

Easy to install. The pins on the legs clamp perfectly into the fixed points on the car's flush rails. This is a nice low profile set up. The top of the crossbar is about 4" above the roof glass and does not interfere with opening the sunroof. This is a very sturdy setup for our Thule Motion XT XL. etrailer shipped extremely fast. Very pleased with my purchase.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Choosing a system for transporting my new (to me, they're actually used) kayaks was TOUGH. I love my little 2017 Honda Fit, and I knew I would love my new kayaks when I got them. I don't want anything bad to happen to either! Also, my car is small and the kayaks are fairly large, comparatively. I've strapped a lot of things to a lot of vehicles, but this is going to be a long term relationship, so I wanted to get it right the first time. I've been researching and reading reviews for months, but I got confirmation that the kayaks were ready for pickup, so I needed to make a decision! I ultimately pulled the trigger on the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars with the 2500 Series Legs and Custom DK Fit Kit for my naked roof car and the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs. I placed my order on 09/15/21 at 6 PM. The estimated delivery date was 09/23/21, which made me a little sad. I really wanted to pick up my boats on Sunday, 09/19/21, but I figured I'd waited THIS long, I could probably handle waiting another week. I was very pleasantly surprised to receive an email at 8 PM the same evening notifying me that my order had shipped. AND, even better, the UPS tracking was showing delivery on 09/18/21 by 7PM! I was beyond excited, but didn't get my hopes up because shipping has been pretty hit or miss since well before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, UPS delivered my package just before noon on Saturday, which was amazing! I got everything unpacked and reviewed to ensure that I had all I would need to assemble the system - check. Nothing missing, which is always an auspicious start. Then I started reading the instructions - UGH. This is (so far) the ONLY thing I have to complain about. I have put together IKEA furniture that had clearer instructions. I probably should have gone to Google to find a YouTube video, but I powered through with the instructions provided. Since I've never put together or used a roof rack before, I didn't really know what the final outcome should look like, so that made interpreting the instructions very difficult - the pictures were not super clear, and the accompanying text did not improve the situation. Now that I know what it looks like assembled, I get it, but at the time it was rough. I estimated it took me about 2 hours to get the rack assembled and secured to my car, and towards the end my fiancé arrived and helped me to realize that the foot pads were not properly attached to the feet, which made a huge difference! The kayak carrier was much easier to install, taking maybe 15 additional minutes. The foot pads rest in the groove on the edge of the roof, I assume over the frame of the car. There's absolutely no flex in the roof where the feet sit. The hook part of the clamp rests against the metal of the car, under the rubber seal, so I don't foresee any potential issues with the seal as a result of the rack. The doors close as normal, and the rack has no movement whatsoever once tightened down. I've now used it as a handle to pull myself up towards the roof a few times (I'm about 190 lbs), and I feel totally confident that it's not going anywhere. I now have ideas about how to use the rack to haul around the larger stuff that won't fit INSIDE my car (which isn't much - I HIGHLY recommend this car!). So, the big question - how'd it go with the kayaks? In short - perfection! I was slightly concerned about the boats overhanging the front or back of my car, as they're 12.5 ft long and my car is just over 13 ft long. Eeeeek! I needn't have worried. They fit like a dream, and even without bow or stern tie downs were very secure during our trip home. We took local roads instead of the highway because we didn't tie down the bow and stern, so we probably didn't go over 40 ish MPH, but I saw absolutely no lift (I can see the ends of the boats out of the front windshield). I will be using those tie downs in the future, and anticipate no issues with highway speeds under those conditions. Obviously, only time will tell how everything holds up/works out, but at this stage, I am extremely pleased with my decision and am looking forward to many kayaking adventures to come! I only have one picture at this point, but may take a few more and add them so anyone else considering a similar setup knows what they'll be getting.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Great product, Roc25 for my 2012 Prius. The bars are a little big and chunky, but I like that they don’t protrude off the side of the roof, and that they are quiet (light whistle I only hear with the windows open). The roof can only handle ~100 lbs so longer more utilitarian bars would be useless. Great for a small roof box and maybe a single bike.

This roof rack works great! At first I was skeptical about putting a rack on my IS250, but it couldn't have turned out better. Paired with the Yakima Highroad, I can easily transport my bikes around without worrying about anything coming loose while driving. The installation instructions for the legs and bars are pretty straightforward. Takes about 30-45 minutes total to install.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Overall unimpressed. Item took nearly a month to arrive from eTrailer despite being in-stock and an estimated delivery time of two days at checkout. The rack looks good but the leg locking bars are made of plastic, not sure why for the price. Not enough hardware was supplied to install following the instructions. Instructions show split lock washers on each bolt. Had to purchase additional split lock washers. Not impressed with the fact that I now need to keep up with 3 specialty tools to service/remove this rack that is supposed to be quick release. 1 key to lock the bases, 1 key to remove the bar end caps and a 5mm safety post Allen which is a stupid tool anyway. The hardware should be standard Allen or torx not safety. The tube end caps should be able to be removed with a flat head or normal tool and not a proprietary key. This would eliminate two superfluous tools. Overall I would not buy this rack again, I would go with a different system.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I wouldn't buy these bars again. Starting with the good, they work as a roof rack and have allowed me to transport my kayak. So that's been great! That said, I would have spent more to get a different kind of rack. These have a serious design flaw. They're hollow tubes with an open slit down the middle. They give you a rubber strip to plug up the hole as best you can, then you put caps on either side of the bars. The bars basically act as two giant clarinets on top of your car. No one can stand the whistling/squealing when they drive in my car. They ask me to take the bars down when they drive with me. I thought this was normal for temporary racks until I was in the car with a friend who had different temp racks and didn't hear a thing.


Comments
Thank you for the review. Many times the whistling is due to the channel not being sealed. Here is a replacement strip, part # RRM626. A wind fairing can help to reduce sound as well, part # RRRF4.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


TLDR: It's a good product with (literal) strength, and some weaknesses. Its cheaper than the competitors, and its in stock now. I mainly bought this due to inventory issues from the other main competitors. That it costs about 100 bucks less is nice, but the reasons for the cost difference is noticeable if you've ever used Thule or Yakima products before. Installation was not more or less irritating than any other roof rack (I've installed MANY over the years). Materials are similar, but the plastic parts feel cheaper than Thule or Yakima, and they towers have exposed innards on the inside faces that make it look cheap, and may create more noise. The fit kit feet are good, but the hooks are 2 pieces pinned together instead of formed and cut to custom lengths. This makes them bulkier than the competition. Apparently they are rated for 33% more weight than the others, and that's cool if you need to haul heavy stuff on top. All said, I'd probably buy their stuff again in a pinch, or if I was trying to save money, but for fit and finish I would go with Thule or Yakima

I am extremely pleased with this product and the etrailer.com. I would definitely purchase this item again and will look to etrailer.com for future purchases. The item arrived quickly and completely as described. The pictures and videos provided on the website ensured I got exactly what I wanted and helped guide the install. My only critique is I received three different installation manuals and didn't realize at first they were for different products. They were very similar so I didn't notice the difference prior to drilling the holes in my topper. Thankfully I did notice prior to creating any major problems, but I ended up adding a few more bolts than my application required (which means more holes drilled in my topper) and it was in metric instead of standard (should have been my first clue). I'm not sure why I received installation manuals for other material, so just take minute to make sure you're referencing the correct one. Additionally, measure multiple times, drill ONCE! I was very nervous to drill holes in my topper so I must have measured 6 or 7 times. I finally just had to go for it. The painters tape was very important for measuring and aligning and prevented my drill bit from sliding. I also used a brand new multipurpose drill bit.

The crossbars are great, but the rubber strip in the middle gets bunched up or comes out when loading heavy items across the bar. But the rubber provides grip, and the grip is amazing. I am not worried about kayaks or rafts sliding around. I do need longer ones though...

Bought this a few weeks ago and finally got around to installing it yesterday. Overall it is very easy to install. I assembled everything in my shop and set the rails about 1 inch wider that what I actually wanted them to be. Put the whole assembly on the roof the the camper shell and centered using a soft seamstress tape measure. Once centered I marked the holes, i then cut the rails down 3 inches and put it back on the roof. I am real OCD so everything was measured precise and equal. Once I was ready to drill holes I measured everything again and once I got up my nerve I drilled all 16 holes in the roof. I did not use the butyl supplied with the racks, instead I used windshield urethane ( I installed windshield in a previous life). I then lined everything up and installed the rails. Before screwing down I put some large D-rings in place and the tightened the lock nuts. The D-rings will allow me to hang things from them. Now I am just waiting to strap my surfboards to the top and head to the beach.

  • Fit of Rhino-Rack ROC 25 Low Profile Vortex Aero Roof Rack on 2019 Volkswagen Golf R
    The Rhino-Rack RV0605B you referred to is the exact same part as the # RR23QR rack we offer, we just use a different part number. The difference between an R and a 'standard' VW Golf model is that the R provides performance and cosmetic upgrades but nothing that would affect the fit of a roof rack. As long as your Golf doesn't have the rails on the roof running from front to back along the edges of the roof, the Rhino-Rack # RR23QR would work great for you.
