Video Transcript for Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2019 Subaru Ascent

Randy: Hey, guys. Randy here at eTrailer. Today, we've got, in a 2019 Subaru Ascent, we're testing a couple different roof rack systems on it. This one's the Rhino-Rack Vortex aero system. We're using the Rhino-Rack SX foot pack. These bars happen to be the 53-inch variety, just so you have a heads up.

Now roof rack systems like this, they're gonna be used for a lot of different things, whether it's ski and snow board carriers. Maybe kayak carriers. Roof top cargo baskets. It's just gonna provide an excellent way to get whatever items we want to take with us out of our vehicle, up on the roof line of our vehicle.Or maybe for bike racks. We don't want a big bike rack hanging off the back.

It still allows us to get three or four bikes up there and get them where we want to go. Now the rack itself is gonna have a 165 pound weight capacity. It's gonna give you a lot of options on stuff that you can put up there, but you do want to check with your owner's manual on the Ascent to see what it's rated for and don't go over that. Now this SX series roof rack system, as you can see it's really nice and low profile. Offers our elliptical bars here.

So between that being low profile it's not gonna change the cosmetic look of our vehicle all that much, but it's gonna promote really good aero dynamics. So with noise and things like that, something we really won't have to suffer with.Of course, any time you add a roof rack system to your vehicle you'll notice a slight different, just to give you a heads up. The elliptical shape of our bar it's gonna help to promote also great aerodynamics and you see we've got a little gap here. That's gonna come with a filler, so once you have your roof rack where you want it, you can fill in the gaps there. Help prevent any of the noise.

Now the lock core is gonna come with a key. It's just not something that you can use a screw driver to take off or anything, but those can be upgraded to a physical lock if you want to do that.Now you'll notice right up here on top we've got our defusing strip, which keeps the wind noise to a minimum, but we can pull that out and slide in our T-slot accessories. Once those are in place, we'll cut these, get them put back in and we won't have to worry about dirt and debris getting down in there. If you're using a wrap around type accessory, that's gonna help to keep those from sliding side to side. So as they clamp down, they kind of press on that rubber a little bit. Keeps any movement to a minimum.Now these are really nice, strong bars. Aluminum construction, so corrosions are just not gonna be an issue for us. Then they're gonna have that anodized finish on them and the black, as you can see, tends to blend in really well with the Ascent's roof rack here, but if you wanted something that stood out a little bit, you can go with the silver option as well.I'm gonna take you through the installation process. We've already got the rear bar installed. We've already got one foot pack on, just to save us a little bit of time. Now to get our foot pack installed in the bar, we need to remove our lock-in cap, here. Just use the provided key, pull that right out. Not a big deal, there. We're gonna hang on to that. We'll need to use that again later. Now we'll take these rectangles and these just need to slide in to that bottom channel on the bar. Got it lined up properly, start sliding it in. Just like that. I'm gonna spread the foot pack apart at that point. It's gonna help us get it up and on the roof line of our vehicle.Now allows us to bring it down and around. Now once we have both of them down and around, we've got both of them pushed in. Now we need to check the distance between our bars. You'll want to base this off of the accessories you have and what they require, but with this type of flexibility it allows us to adjust these bars, depending on our needs. So if we wanted them a little wider, we can move them out a little wider. Or a little close together, we can do that. Next thing we're gonna check, we've got our bars squared to one another, is gonna be our overhang. So from our foot pack out here to the end. Measure that on both sides and get that evened up.Now with the even overhang on each side, we're gonna take our provided tool. We're gonna begin to torque this down. What I like to do is go from side to side, just so we don't have to worry about our bar moving or anything. So I'm gonna get this one pretty close to being snugged all the way down. We'll go to the other side and do the same thing there. Now we'll start applying the final torque to each side. With your tool, as you tighten it, you see that line right there It's right there on the end. As you tighten it, that flexes out. So we want to use our thumb on that portion, just like this, until that line straightens out for us. So it looks like right there is about perfect.Once we have that secure we need to take our locking end cap. We're gonna place that back on. Use the provided key to get that locked in place. I'm just headin' over to the other side, do the same thing there. My roof rack's gonna be ready for use and that'll complete our look at the Rhino-Rack SX Series roof rack system on our 2019 Subaru Ascent.

I spent a week reading reviews and forums to find the right one for my 2019 Jeep Cherokee that I just bought a few weeks ago. I just have to overthink everything but it paid off. I just received them this morning and installed them myself! First time for everything! It was really easy. The only part that was frustrating was the very first part... sliding the rubber pieces into the crossbars. They would not slide very well so I ended up using a bit of oil to make them slide better. Other than that, installation was easy and quick. I LOVE the looks of them. Very gorgeous!!! Thank you so much!! Very happy with the end result!! 671162

The Rhino Rack black aero crossbars looks look great on our 2014 Acura TSX. There were 2 components involved, the bars themselves and the mounting legs. There was evidently a holdup with the latter (the legs) becoming available, and etrailer kept me updated on the status via both telephone voice messages and emails. Really topnotch customer service. 545585

I am very pleased with the etrailer.com. Easy to navigate website and expedited shipping for no extra cost. I ordered and received my product in about a week, which is very reasonable for being across the country. The product arrived in tact and with no damage. Easy to put the rack bars on my jeep. I've included pictures of the completed result. We plan on buying the attachments that will mount our bikes and when we do we will be doing so from etrailer. 603778

So far I'm liking these Rhino Racks. My first set of racks, so installation took some more time than it would otherwise. Not bad though. The longest part was popping all the rubber insert pieces into place (why did they give me so many 8" long pieces instead of just giving me one long piece, or better yet, having that already assembled!) I got the who system installed in about 40 min though and it's working great. At first, there was a whistling noise, then I realized there were more rubber inserts I needed to put in on the bottom of the rack bars, which fixed the problem. I like these. They look good. Haven't tested them yet with any heavy loads. 558522

It was easy to install. The whistles are loud when I go around 30-50 mph eventhough i put the rubber and measuring strips up and down; fortunately, I still have the measuring strips left so i put it on the holes and the whistling was gone. Great product! 645220

I gave this a 4 star not because the product was bad but because it did not work as I needed for my 2017 Equinox. I will be a carrying an 18' canoe and because of the molding on the factory roof rails and the way the foot mounts clamp to the rails, you lose about 6-7 inches on the front and about 4-5 inches on the back. The minimum distance required between centers was 27 7/16" and you can only get 23 with this set-up, so I had to return them and find cross bars the mount internally to the roof rails. If you were carrying something really short, it might be okay for you. 639423

After 1 year, I am still very pleased with the Rhino Bars that I purchased from you. They have now carried a Thule roof top carrier from Ontario Canada to Florida and back again (twice). Installation and removal are easy and fairly quick (this is good because my wife does not like to drive around with just the bars on top). All-around...a great experience. 486134

Love the Rhino Roofrack. Looks good and sturdy. Its appearance doesn't detract from the looks of my BMW like some other racks might have. I look forward to carrying many things on my roof now, my Canoe, Kayak, SUP, and bicycles. Makes my Sports Activity Vehicle much more ready for sporting adventures. 232810

Review from a similar Rhino Rack SX Series in Roof Rack


1 yr review. So honesty is always the best approach. Full rhino rack with wind deflector. Not the most silent cross bar design I have owned. There are gaps in the manufactured aero bars and mounts. they are mitigated by the pieces of plastic inserts that were provided. Still I know its up there. Then again if you have stuff on your roof you are going to know it no matter what. I like the bars for the price and it is a solid product. I regularly carry 12 foot paddle boards and up to 3 surf boards on my roof. distances ranging from a a few minutes to over 6 hours. Occasionally I have carried one 12 ft and my mountain bike across the US. NO issues and I would buy this product again. 550479

Review from a similar Rhino Rack SX Series in Roof Rack


Great quality and easy to install. The directions were very clear. Very fast delivery. We needed a carrier for a last minute vacation. Our brand new Jeep Cherokee did not have cross rails, so I ordered these rails on line and bought a cargo carrier at our local Sears store. Ordered, received, and installed all in one week, ready in time for vacation. We did notice a whistling noise from the cross bars at 60 mph. Investigating a solution. 215619


Comments

I saw some of the comments about the whistling flute noise with the cross bar. I have a 2015 Jeep Cherokee with factory rails, and I installed the crossbar following the directions. Very easy instal. But at 45 mph and up there is a whistling noise. It is loud at 60-70 mph. The solution is to use the rubber measuring strips after installation is complete and cut them to fit under the rail where the open grove is. After measuring the ends, I cut the strip off leaving it in the groove and installed the end caps. Then I cut the leftover measuring strips to fit the channel on the inside of the support legs. Perfect fit! No whistling! Problem solved. Please share and consider making this procedure a standard part of the installation.

We are very pleased with our rhino rack after having it for a year. I have kept the rails on and and have had no problems or noise from them like a lot of reviewers noted. The solution in my comment really works. I think you should consider adding that step to eliminate the whistling that many people experience. It requires no additional material because you can use the strips that are included and leftover after installation.

Review from a similar Rhino Rack SX Series in Roof Rack


Dilivery was exellent!! Etrailer did its part!! I already ordered Rhino roof racks for my Fiesta,they are awesome! So, I ordered Rhino roof racks for my Escape, not awesome! The end caps on my rescent Rhino roof racks for my Escape where different than the ones for my Fiesta, even though same roof racks! They are just different legs for each one! Rhino got cheap and sloppy on the newer end caps!! The end caps fit so loose, that on my first trip with them on my Escape, two of them blew right out the end of the racks!! So, now I am missing two end caps!! The wind is now going into the end of the openings, and making all kinds of noise!!!! Not to mention, they look so dam ugly, and stupid now!!!!! I feel embarresed driving with them on my SUV!! I have had the ones on my Fiesta for 2 and ahalf years, and no problems! These newer end caps are no good at all!!!!! Put tape on the inside of the other two thats left, shouldn't have to do that!!! I wouldn't recommend these newer Rhino racks to anyone!!! End caps are crap!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very disappointed!!!!!! Nothing against Etrailer, they didn't make them, but, Rhino roof racks did!!!!!! Wish Etrailer would send me two more end caps, these roof racks aren't cheap!!!!! But, the end caps sure are!!!!! NOT HAPPY!!!! Item:RRSX001 161225

Review from a similar Rhino Rack SX Series in Roof Rack


For the most part I like this rack system. One of the mounts was non operational upon receipt. They replaced it fairly quickly. Rhino was fairly responsive until I got to the hard questions, then they became unresponsive. In my book, they fell down at the finish line and that is why they get a 3 and not a higher grade. PS I never did get an answer to my question from Rhino :( 274755

Review from a similar Rhino Rack SX Series in Roof Rack


+ Came quickly with no extra shipping charges + Easy to install: Full disclosure -- It arrived in the evening and I had to put one cross bar on to see if it would be easy. It was. But I got distracted, so I have not put the other one on yet. Will update once I check for sound and actually try to carry something on it. Only thing that was not clear was what to do with the overhang of rubber stripping after I installed the bar and covered the gap that runs the length of the bar. I hate to cut something to size only to find it might be needed in a less obvious way later on. Adding a picture to the direction showing the overhang being trimmed would be reassuring. Although, it seemed like the obvious thing to do. Other than that little thing, the rack seems to live up to its billing. 656768

These crossbars are great! I thought after extended sun exposure here in Texas that the black finish would begin to fade. No sign of it yet after one year. At high speeds there is a little “howl” from the air going through bars. To be expected with any roof rack setup, certainly isn’t irritating. Not noticeable with music on. We’ve strapped some funky things on there and the rubber for the t-slot does a great job preventing slippage and damage to the bars. 499001

To start you will need a roof rack, and if it has raised side rails I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero which consists of crossbars # RRVA118B-2 and legs # RRSX100. This roof rack can accommodate the 150 lb roof capacity...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Load Assist Recommendation for 2011 Chevy Equinox with Raised Side Rails
  • There is a solution for you, but the issue with the BoatLoader EVO # Y04085 the crossbar spread as well as its 80 lb weight capacity, which is less than your 87 lb fishing kayak. Instead, for your 2011 Chevy Equinox with raised side rails I recommend the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack, which will give your Equinox a very functional, durable rack that will allow you to use a load assist. This roof rack uses aero bars and consists of: - Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA126B-2 (Black) OR...

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2016 Subaru Crosstrek for Rooftop Tent

I also recommend you secure your rack to your roof using the locking endcaps # RRVA-LEC4. This system is rated for 165 lbs. The rooftop tents (like you referenced) are load supported by the ladder to assist with the load capacity when you are using it. We have the Yakima SkiRise # Y07407 and...

  • What Is The Better Option Roof Platform or a Roof Basket
  • The cargo baskets offer more security for your items. To be honest I like the fact that the roof baskets have bars around their product. That gives me the peace of mind that my items are more secure when on my roof. A product like the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB02 can be applied to round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. It is made with the passengers and drivers that are carrying oversized cargo. The basket does come with a fairing, and that's...

  • You can build a roof rack setup that will let you carry both a SUP and a kayak on your 2006 Honda CR-V.

  • Roof Rack Options for Mounting the Thule Canyon XT on a 2018 Nissan Armada
  • Even though we haven't test fit the Thule Canyon XT # TH7503-TH7503 on a 2018 Nissan Armada I am confident that it will fit just fine and I'm pretty sure you could even get away with using the extension piece! The answer to your next question is yes, the Lock Cylinders # TH450400 will work with the Canyon XT. This is demonstrated in the attached review video. I do have a solution for a roof rack but unfortunately Thule doesn't have a roof rack fit (like part # TH7503-TH7503 you mentioned)...

  • You'll need to install a roof rack first on your 2012 Mazda 5, but yes, the Thule Motion XT part # TH6299B will fit on your vehicle.

  • Roof Rack to Fit Both 2017 Jeep Cherokee and 2017 Volkswagen SportWagen
  • I am happy to check for a common roof rack fit for your two vehicles, the 2017 Jeep Cherokee and the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen. All roof racks we offer for each vehicle are shown on the two linked pages. If the Cherokee has factory roof rails that run front-to-back you could use one set of Rhino-Rack bars, 49-inch Vortex Aero bars # RRVA126B-2, on both vehicles. On the Cherokee the bars will install using SX Leg Kit # RRSX100 and on the VW you can use Leg Kit # RRSX022. The...

  • Can Sunroof be Opened with Roof Rack on 2017 Jeep Cherokee with Raised Side Rails
  • The Rhino-Rack Vortex StealthBar Roof Rack # JA7972 is going to sit too low to allow you to open the sunroof on your 2017 Jeep Cherokee, which is going to be true of all low-profile flush-mounted roof racks that fit your '17 Cherokee with raised side rails, including the Yakima RailBar # Y00447-0448. The general rule when a roof rack is installed is to keep the sunroof closed at all times, and while manufacturers specifically state not to open the sunroof with the aforementioned flush-mounted...

  • Roof Rack System for a 2012 Mazda 5
  • This is generally considered fixed mounting points. Prior to making a purchase, you'd want to see if those pads can be removed and if there are any hardware or mounting points actually concealed below them. If you do have mounting points, I recommend the Rola Sport rack, part # 59834. This rack is an all-in-one solution that will mount directly to your fixed points with no need for any additional purchases. If you don't have mounting points we carry a Rhino-Rack roof rack consisting...

  • Best Ways To Add Extra Cargo Space to a 2016 Ford Escape
  • I have a few options for your 2016 Ford Escape that will allow you to add extra cargo space. I see that you were looking at the Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag part # TH868 but this will not be a good choice for you because it would sit directly on top of the moon roof which is just asking for problems to be had. Instead, if you wanted to utilize the roof you would want a roof rack and cargo basket. For a roof rack, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System part # RRVA126B-2...

  • Rhino Roof Rack For 2006 Honda CR-V With Raised Rails
  • The Rhino Rack that you need for the 2006 Honda CR-V with raised rails is part # RRVA106B-2 for the 41 inch bar and the Rhino Rack Series Legs part # RRSX100 that attached to the fixed mounting points. Rhino Rack recommends the 41 inch bar for the Honda because the 49 inch bar part # RRVA126B-2 may extend past the side mirrors of the Honda which is illegal in some states.

  • Roof Rack to Carry Ladder on 2015 Subaru Forester
  • There is a way to carry a ladder but opening the hatch on your 2015 Subaru Forester will be dicey; the only real option to safely carry a ladder and possibly open your hatch is going to be with a cargo tray. Even then it depends on how high the hatch opens; if it is more than a couple inches above your roof there really isn't going to be a way to do so. If your '15 Forester has raised side rails there is a roof rack from Rhino Rack that I recommend checking out which consists of Rhino-Rack...

  • Recommended Replacement Feet for Old Square Crossbars with 2019 Jeep Cherokee

These are designed for the square bars and will be compatible with the old discontinued Thule square load bars. My recommendation if you want to upgrade is to go with an aero bar instead of the old square bar. For that I suggest the Rhino-Rack which is our most...

  • Thank you for the photo of your 2016 Jeep Cherokee that has factory-installed raised side rails on its roof. To use the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB02 on your Cherokee you'll need a roof rack like their aerodynamic Vortex Aero rack, made of parts # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX100. This rack will be quieter than other types thanks to its elliptical-shaped bars that reduce wind turbulence. Their black finish will also complement the Jeep's appearance. An installation video is...
