Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbar

These low-profile, aerodynamic Vortex Aero crossbars let you build a stylish aftermarket roof rack from scratch. The crossbars require 4 Rhino-Rack legs (manufactured in 2014 or later) and a custom fit kit to mount it to your roof. Each bar extends past the roof rack legs to maximize the space for mounting carriers and accessories. Rubberized Vortex strips in each crossbar's top channel disrupt airflow for a quiet ride, and the bars are constructed of aluminum so they won't rust. The crossbars also include Secure Core endcaps with plastic locks to help deter theft of channel-mounted accessories.


Aerodynamic Design

Vortex Aero noise-reducing top channel strips

The rubberized Vortex strips in the top channel of each 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 crossbars cut through the air with minimal drag - even at highway speeds.


Strong, Durable Construction

Vortex Aero crossbar H-shaped extrusion

The Vortex Aero crossbars are made of structural-grade anodized aluminum with H-shaped internal extrusions. These extrusions strengthen the bars without adding a significant amount of weight. And the aluminum bars won't rust so you can leave them on your roof year-round.


No-Hassle Installation

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero bottom channel ruler

Each crossbar has a channel in the bottom for mounting to Rhino-Rack roof rack legs (sold separately). Each end of the channel includes a rubber ruler to help you center the bar on your roof. Simply use the numbers and hash marks on the rulers to ensure the legs are spaced properly in the channel.


Channel-Mounted and Clamp-On Accessories

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbar top-channel strips

Each Vortex Aero 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 channels 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 bars, and the Vortex strips provide a shock-absorbing, no-slip cushion for any accessories that rest on them.


Built-In Security

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Secure Core locking endcaps

Each crossbar includes 2 Secure Core locking endcaps made of durable polypropylene. These endcaps lock with a universal tubular key. The polypropylene locks secure the endcaps to the crossbars and help to secure channel-mounted accessories to the crossbars. For maximum security, you can upgrade to endcaps with all-metal lock cores (RRVA-LEC4 - sold separately).

etrailer.com's videos and additional customer support made the purchase of a Rhino Rack system from them for our 2010 Malibu a no brainer. The rack fit the car perfectly, and with the videos and clear instructions that came with the kit, I got it installed on the car with only one misstep. The instructions came the the measurements in centimeters and inches. I didn't have a metric tape measure, and ended up messing up converting fractions to decimal. My Daughter is going to college 500 miles away and is moving into an unfurnished apartment and needed to pick up some small furniture that wouldn't fit in her Malibu. She purchased several items from Facebook Marketplace and was able to transport a twin bed and mattress, a medium sized desk and some dining room chairs (in several trips) with no problems. The only thing I can think of to improve the installation would be to have the Inches measurements in decimal or to include an inexpensive metric tape.


Comments
Still rock solid after a year. Very happy with the Rack. My daughter has used it from time to time over the past year when something wont fit in her car, and shes had no problems with it at all.

My inital thought of these crossbars were that they were going to be too small. Two of the other big makers call for 53" min and 60" recommended. However after installing, 49" is a perfect fit for the Cayenne I feel. The rack is extremely quiet (make sure you use the channel rubber on top and bottom) The Cayenne is fairly quiet car inside and it was one of my big concerns but I only hear what sounds like a slight rush of air, no buzzing or whistling at all. The downside to this rack is I think the black paint is too thin. Just laying it on the pavement while setting up caused scratches to appear. Silver would be the way to go if your getting these, or spray them plastic.

You have to order the cross bars and connector hardware separately. I also ordered the end cap locks. I consider myself a pretty good DYI person and it took longer than I expected according to other reviews on here to get everything installed and overlapping the same on both sides. Once installed the crossbars are very solid. I do get noticeable wind noise at say 70+MPH. I installed these on a 2020 Jeep GC Overland and they look and function great! Was a bit concerned about the sun roof retraction with the bars, but there is plenty of clearance. No issue. I for sure recommend the Rhino Rail crossbars. Etrailer is a great site to get the bars. Given the COVID issues and supply chain breakdowns retailers are facing, they still had everything I ordered to me in a very reasonable time frame.

The bars look and feel great. They have such a tough presence while still being aerodynamic. I love the look of the rubber grip strip on top and I like how the rubber strip on the bottom ends have graduations so you can easily match the overhang with the other side. They feel incredible strong, no bend in the them at all. If the platforms were a bit more robust this thing would outshine all the competition. However, it competes with every other system at a much lower price point so that gets 5 stars in my book.

The folks at etrailer are great. Part of my order was backordered and they went out of their way to try and speed up delivery, even with the backorder delivery was very fast. Installation (2017 Mazda hatchback) was easy but I must have misunderstood the directions because both front and rear spacing was too short (1 1/2"). No problem though as a slight adjustment that only took ten extra minutes at the most to resolve with no effect on the installation. I didn't time it but I bet the whole installation from unboxing to being done took less than an hour and it fits the car, both physically and aesthetically perfect. Pleased customer planning to buy some accessories real soon.

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.

The Rhino Rack is a well designed product and very well made - The fit for my car worked well and it took about 45 minutes to assemble, adjust and install. It will work well for transporting bikes and surfboards. The assembly kit included a long shaft hex wrench and handle which made assembly and installation much easier.

Rhino Rack worked great for transporting my bike from Missouri to South Carolina and back. Easy to load and very secure.

First....the customer service was great. Followed and answering questions were timely and helpful. Install was easy as I’ve had experience with these and similar. Instructions were clear and the bars are very very sturdy. Very solid. I’m anxious to start loading my equipment on it to really utilize them. Hopefully they will hold up to their name as I’ve trusted rhino rack and etrailer for my source multiple times now.

Great sturdy rack. I put it together myself and have already started using it. I was concerned that it would cause leaks in the door the way it has to mount..but its Florida and its rainfall in the past few days and no leak! The weak link would be the end caps..two do not lock on and im concerned the will fly off at some point.

Its still attached to my car and still doing its job. I did lose an end cap and had to order 2 as a pair . I dont remember the amount but the were expensive as replacementsespecially since i knew it would happen

Love this roof rack! It's super easy to install and remove! Customer service responded promptly when I needed a new rubber piece (gasket?) that I cut too small when installing - measure twice, cut once. The roof rack easily holds two kayaks on my Mazda 3 - and looks great!

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.

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.

Received the roof rack on the date promised, it was well packaged and all parts required were included. Everything fit together very well and the instructions were easy to follow. The rack looks good on the car. Once the rack is installed and the included decals in place it only takes a few minutes to remove it and reinstall. This is important for me because we will only use the racks to transport our kayaks the rest of the time they will be removed and stored. There are two small items that can be improved. First the legs are different lengths yet nowhere in the instructions does it tell you where each size goes. Second I own 10 tape measure and not one of them is in meters and I do not care how good your eyesight is you are not going to be able to measure to 53/64". If the measurements are critical you should ensure customers in the US have measurements they can use or include a MM tape measure. Overall this is a very good product that I would purchase again and recommend to friends.

Took me a while to discover that the rubber was inside the crossbar and you needed to pull off end caps to get key out- my bad. No clues given on box though, and no instructions inside either. Fit and look great on my 2021 RAV4 Hybrid. Arrived on time since in stock.

I bought this rack for my son who is a rower so he could take his single shell and oars to regattas using his new Chevy Cruz. First trip from Wyandotte, Michigan to Boston, Massachusetts and back was great. A learning curve to get in the right spot on roof but very sturdy & strong. He is looking forward to many regattas with this car and roof rack. Very Satisfied with etrailer and the rack itself and thank you for the quick shipping.

Easy to read instructions, easy to install. Watched the install video a few times just to be sure! They do whistle a bit at highway speeds, but certainly not unbearable. In fact, I was surprised as to how quiet they are. It's to be expected, especially when paired with kayak j-racks. So happy with this purchase and I would definitely recommend them!

Installation on Golf TDI was tedious as the angles of the retaining clamps that go under the door didn't look very aligned with the car's curves at first. Wasn't sure if I ha the correct parts! Advice: tighten very slowly and monitor the clamp attachments. Pros: Strong as a tank. No noticeable loss of mileage with aero crossbars. Cons (as for all racks): Road noise / whistling increasing intensity once above 30mph.

I beat the heck out of this rack on a Daily basis. I throw kayaks, luggage, several 16 and 20ft 2x6’s, plywood, camping gear, and anything else large and typically put into the bed of a truck. You wouldn’t believe me unless I showed you the kind of life my equipment has. It’s gotta be tough. I do wish that it had a better grip strength forward and backwards because unless the load is heavy and large enough, if a strap is used from front rack to back rack, the racks tend to slide towards eachother as it ratchets tighter. However if you run the strap across and hook the strap back onto the same bar, the way the rack flexes causes the grip to be immovable and is incredibly secure. But with no load, I can hammer fist the racks forward or back wards even when tightened down with the torque wrench. So I feel maybe some minor adjustments by the company would definitely solve this. All in all, yes it’s a bit on the higher price side, It’s got that one con (sliding), but has definitely exceeded it’s factory “max load” specification and structural integrity. I would recommend this product. It’s a great rack.

Everything fastened together well. A little air noise when using these, but I think I would get that wind/air noise with whatever rack I used. Install was easy and I was able to haul a surf ski on the roof of my jetta. All is good! Best part of this experience was working with the customer service - they did a fantastic job!

    There are a couple options for that are going to allow you to haul bikes as well as your skis and snowboard on your 2008 Land Rover LR2 HSE, and I'll go over both. The first option is to put a roof rack on your Land Rover and add roof-mounted bike racks along with a separate ski/snowboard carrier. The roof rack I recommend for your '08 Land Rover LR2 with a naked roof is from Rhino-Rack and consists of Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA126B-2 (Black) OR # RRVA126S-2 (Silver), 2500 Series...

If the goal is for crossbars to be installed on your Odyssey I would just go with the Rhino Rack.

    For your 2019 VW Tiguan, I recommend you start with the roof rack. I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA126B-2 and the Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs # RRSX100. Then for your canoe, I recommend the Yakima KeelOver Rooftop Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs - Universal Mount # Y04069 which comes with the tie downs and support needed.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Nissan Maxima for Kayak Carrier
    The roof rack I recommend for your 2019 Nissan Maxima is the custom fit Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK133 because this rack gives you a set of aero shaped crossbars which will be super quiet, is easy to install, and because this rack is a higher quality rack that costs less than similar quality racks. I attached an install video for this rack as well as a picture of it installed for you to check out as well. For a kayak carrier I recommend the Thule...

  • Roof Rack for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee without E Group Flush Rails
    Thule used to have a fit for your style of non-E-group roof rails but at this time they do not have anything. Best option we have is the Rhino Rack Aero Bar roof rack part numbers # RRVA137S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK234 which fits to the outsides of your flush rails more like a naked roof fit. I attached an install video for this on a similar Jeep for you to check out. The bars are square but the feet are the same.

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2012 Honda Civic Sedan
    For your 2012 Honda Civic Sedan you would need to first start with a roof rack for a kayak carrier to attach to. I really like the Rhino Rack roof racks like the part # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK319 which when used together complete a custom roof rack for your vehicle. This rack is a high quality rack like the more expensive ones but not quite as expensive. Then for carrying two kayaks the Thule Stacker part # TH830 would work well as it can carry up to 4 kayaks. I attached a review...

  • Recommended Roof Rack And 2 Kayak Carrier For 2013 Nissan Rogue
    For your 2013 Nissan Rogue, the Rhino-Rack roof rack consisting of the Rhino-Rack 2500 Roof Rack DS126B and the Custom DK Fit Kit # DK146 is no longer available, but would have been all you needed. Rhino Rack has replaced that system with the roof rack consisting of crossbars # RRVA126B-2, legs # RRRLKVA, and the same fit kit # DK146. If you want to haul two kayaks, I recommend the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier - Folding - Universal Mount # S512 with Expansion Arm for Rhino-Rack...

    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. For a kayak carrier our most popular option is the Thule Hullaport part # TH834 which is a J-style carrier that would work well for you and fits the Rhino Rack. Then for a frame mounted roof bike rack the Thule # TH599000 would...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2018 Honda Civic RS Hatchback
    For your 2018 Honda Civic RS hatchback with sunroof I recommend the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack for Naked Roofs - Vortex Aero Crossbar - Aluminum # RR78TR which will have more of a factory look with the bars ending in the towers. If you want more of the aftermarket look, then I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 49" Long # RRVA126B-2, 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and Custom DK Fit Kit # DK485. I've attached a video of this roof rack to assist. Either...

  • Determining if 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Has E-Group Package for Picking Out Roof Rack
    When looking at the roof side rails on your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee you can determine if it has the E-Group package by inspecting them to see if there is a chrome section that runs down the middle of the rail. This chrome section indicates that the vehicle has the E-Group package while a completely black rail without a chrome section means that it's a non-E-Group model. I have included an image that shows an E-Group roof rail with the chrome strip that you can check out as well. If...

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2016 Honda Civic 4 Door Sedan
    There are not any Sportrack brand roof racks compatible with your 2016 Honda Civic, however, there are similar style options available from other brands. I recommend the Rhino Rack Roof Rack for a comparable system. This will include the # RRVA126B-2 crossbars with the # RRRLKVA legs, and #DK453 custom fit kit. This is a lockable system that is easy to install and easy to remove when not in use. This is made specifically for your 2016 Honda Civic 4 Door Sedan.
