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).

Video Transcript for Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2017 Honda Civic

Today in our 2017 Honda Civic, we'll be taking a look at and showing you how to install The Rhino-Rack roof rack system. This is going to consist of part numbers RRVA126B-2. That's going to be our Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbars. These are also available in silver with part number RRVA126S-2. The Rhino-Rack 2500 series legs for the crossbars, part number RRRLKVA and part number DK453. That's going to be our custom-fit kit for our roof rack legs. The Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbar system is going to be an aerodynamic crossbar system that allows you to carry any kind of vehicle accessory on your vehicle's roof, whether those are roof-mounted bike racks, cargo baskets, or ski and snowboard carriers.

If we remove the end cap of our crossbar, you'll see our weather strip on the top. That, along with the aerodynamic shape of our bar, is going to help to reduce wind noise and drag. We can also easily remove our weather strip and cut this down to accommodate channel-mounted accessories. The end caps on our crossbars also have the option to remove our plastic lock core and put in the metal one. You can find that at etrailer.com.

It's part number RRVA-LEC4. The foot pack for our crossbar kit also the option to lock it to help prevent thefts and tampering of your crossbar system as a whole. Lastly, the custom-fit kit that comes with our vehicle is going to have rubber at any portion that's going to make contact with our vehicle. That's going to help to prevent scratches or abrasions from our roof rack system onto our vehicle. This kit total has a 165-pound weight capacity, so you do want to check your vehicle's owners manual to make sure it can withstand that much weight. Everything you see here on this table is what's included with our kit. We have our foot pack here with our locking covers and the key is just above that.

We have our end cap for our crossbar with our included key, our fit kit for our roof rack system. That's going to be our rubber bottom piece. Then we'll have our clamp here and we have our included tool. This is going to be a torque tool to let us know how much torque we have behind our bolt and then we've provided our own flat tape measure. To start our install, we're going to take the bottom portion of our foot pack off. We're going to attach our rubber piece.

We're just going to squeeze those two pieces together until it's completely sealed and tight. Then we can place it onto our foot pack. Next, we'll remove our bolts here. We'll take our included clamp, place it over where we just removed our bolt, and start to tighten that back down. We want to tighten our bolts up just enough so that our clamp doesn't come loose from our foot pack. We're going to take the square nut on the bottom of our foot pack and slide this into the channel and we can take our measurement before the placement. This is going to be 12.8 centimeters. Once we have that in place, we'll take our included torque tool and we'll tighten down this bolt, here. Double check that measurement. Now we're ready to open up our doors and load this up onto our vehicle. With our doors open we'll take our crossbar and we're going to place it over the top of our vehicle. The crossbar spread's going to be from the middle of our front clamp to the middle of our back clamp, and that's going to be 70 centimeters. Once we have those in the correct spot, we can take our included torque tool and we're going to start to tighten down our bolts. I'm going to tighten it down so that our clamp is sitting just up against our door frame. Now we'll go back and forth tightening these down evenly, making sure that whatever we do to one side we do to the other. Now, we'll know we have enough torque behind our bolt when this skinnier portion of our torque tool is straight, just like you see there. Now we'll close up our doors and we can place on our locking end caps. We've got our crossbar end caps locked into place. We'll take our locking covers for our foot packs and lock those up. Now would be a good time to load up any roof-mounted accessories, and you're ready to hit the road. That's going to be our completed look at the Rhino-Rack roof rack system for our 2017 Honda Civic.

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. 248807

I love my Rhino Vortex roof racks. They look great, are sturdy, and there is no wind noise up to 70 mph (haven't been on the freeway yet). eTrailer was great and made the proper component selection easy. Now, the -1 star... The instructions provided by Rhino were horrible or non-existent. The cross bar literally had no instructions and I couldn't even find them for my model online. Between being a handy guy and watching other Rhino videos on YouTube, I figure it out. Maybe most people have professional installers put them on. 375802

Love the Rhino rack! Sometimes I think I could stand the truck Grand Cherokee upside down on it! It was a little tricky to install, but once I found YouTube vids I was good to go.

I love the product. The only thing that I was unclear about at the time of purchase was that the additional adjustable bars weren’t included as a set. I have yet to purchase those and would like to get a quote on the best price possible for those. Thanks for all your help with this. 545782

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! 559818

Delivery was a little slower then I would have liked, but otherwise it was perfect. Great customer service when I called to ask about them. Make sure you read the instructions when you install (I didn't and wasted an hour fooling around with the wrong parts) other then that, the install was smooth as silk. 424344

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. 395557

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. 146312


Comments

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

The product was well packaged and well buffered. The package came a day earlier than the scheduled arrival period. I used the instructions on the website and it took me only 15 Minutes to assemble it and another 20 to set it in my car. Im in love with how it looks on my Civic 2015 and would Highly recommend it to others. The company had a wonderful follow up, from the time I bought the product to its arrival and even after its arrival. Thumbs up to this wonderful team. Here are some pictures of the product on my Civic. 524507

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. 322414

We'll start with the good. The racks look great once installed and are very durable like I expect from Rhino Rack. There are a few thing I have noticed with the quality of materials and the design of the roof racks. First off, I have noticed a reduction in the quality of the hardware. Once you get the mounting points secured, which was relatively easily, they ask you to secure the legs with 1 security screw per leg. Not only does the screw not turn more that 2 turns without stopping, the included security hex wrench is small and fails to turn the screws without stripping. I have found since they don't quite fit, I had to WD-40 the screw and the hole, and the use pliers to grab the head of the screw and work it in there. Once you are able to bore the hole out that way, you can back it out quite easily, and the you can use the included wrench to install. I thought the hardware and Allen wrench device they included with their roof racks several years ago were much higher quality and easier to work with. I also thought paying nearly $400 for these racks would justify high quality materials and tools, but I suppose Rhino Rack is cutting corners as well. The L shaped torx wrench they provide does a poor job of gripping the screw and is nearly worthless, because of the fact that the screws do not fit in the holes without other tools. Also, a small thing that has been mentioned before on this site, the plastic locking caps are not the highest security measure, but I see you can upgrade to metal end caps for more money. I feel this should be included for this price point. I believe this may be my last set of Rhino Racks because I just see their quality going the wrong direction. 372788

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!! 671164

We love our Rhino Racks! We got them to haul our kayaks around on our crossovers. These were our first racks we've ever installed to a vehicle so we struggled a little bit to figure them out, but once we did figure it out, it was super easy. Mostly importantly, we initially ordered the wrong rack in error. etrailer was helpful and accommodating and made the return process super easy and helped us get the right product ordered. I would definitely recommend this company and these roof racks. 668520

This is a very sturdy rack. It fits great on my car and it's easy to use. My only issue was with the original installation. The instructions had an error with the placement of the rack feet on the crossbar. I used the dimensions given in the manual but they were off by 10 cm. I had to adjust the feet in 10 cm on each side of the crassbar for the feet to sit correctly on the roof of my car. A very minor issue. Overall, a great rack system. The single kayak kit was easy to install and works like a charm. Thanks Rhino Racks!!!!! 668519

Tried buying a cheaper rack and it was terrible, I was doubtful it would stay on the roof by itself never mind with something on it. The Rhino Vortex Rack was easy to install and is very solid and secure. I'm using it to transport two Kayaks and it works great. I noticed my crossbars we missing the filler strip for the top of the crossbar and contacted etrailer and they quickly addressed the issue and sent me them. Great job, a satisfied customer. 667623

Rhino-Rack Vortex 2500 with legs, pads and accessories. Arrived quickly. A 70 year old man assembled and installed in about an hour and a half on a humid 90 degree day. These products appear to be of excellent quality and seem to be more than adequate for carrying a 15 foot fiberglass canoe on our 2011 Buick Lacrosse. Rack offers good flexibility for adding accessories. The wife says the aero shape is way cool! 667130

I finally had a chance to use the rack I put on my car (Toyota Camry) and I can now say that it worked perfectly. My 12.6” kayak fit nicely on the rack and was easily secured. Though the rack was easy to install, I worried that I might not have the strength to tighten the screws enough to insure that it would stay put on the roof. But the tool that comes with the rack is made in such a way that it shows when enough torque is being applied. Still, one never knows until the load is secured on the rack and taken for a ride. I'm happy to say everything stayed put. Good product. Thanks. 665236



- RRVA126B-2

I've had this product for a year now, I got an email asking to write a review. I've had no problems with this product other than an annoying whistle from the channels, not sure if it was supposed to come with something to fill these or what but it's obnoxious. Functionally they're excellent, I have a cage I put on them for camping and two sets of kayak attachments for day trips in the Puget Sound. When I originally purchased these They sent be the wrong attachment for my car and I had to send it back, but all things considered it was barely an inconvenience, something I forgot about until now writing the review. The bars are solid, and the attachments haven't done any damage to my paint and have stayed solid for a year now. Aside from the whistle, they're top notch and if I ever needed to buy bars for a different car, I'd buy these again. 660070


Comments

Usually when the roof racks whistle, its caused by one of the rubber channel strips missing. Check both the top and the underside of the crossbars, making sure the rubber filler strips completely cover the slots. Anytime something is installed on the top of a vehicle a certain amount of wind noise will occur, but making sure all those filler strips are in place will greatly minimize the noise.

Easy to assemble and install. My only issue so far is that they definitely whistle more than I expected. I suspect this has to do with my vehicle (2013 Audi Q7), as the tone and loudness decreases when off the accelerator/braking. I think the back-slanting roofline of the Q7 expose more of the underside of the rails, leading to more whistle. When braking or cruising, the whistle is quieter/gone. Hopefully that dies down some when the basket is installed and there is gear/luggage in it, therefore decreasing the amount of airflow past the rails. 614779


Comments

Youll want to make sure the rubber strip is installed both on the top of the crossbar, but also on the underside. Not having the channel covered with the strips can make things pretty noisy. Anything installed on a vehicle roof will cause more turbulence and wind noise, but making sure the strips are in place will really minimize the noise.

The racks have a great price and they look great. However the installation took longer than my Yakima Whispbar. Also there is a hollow area under the rack that needs to be blocked by the little plastic strips with etched measurements. It seems that it is optional to put these, but if the cavity is not blocked the racks will make an awful whistling tone when going over 40 MPH. Once the plastic strips were installed and the hollow area under the rack was sealed the whistling sound went away. The "broadband" noise produced by these is comparable to my Whispbars... and the racks look really good in my vehicle. 612955

I ordered a full Rhino Rack system for a 2013 Ford Focus. It fits perfect, the instructions were really simple, and the rack holds all my family's ski/snowboard gear. Five stars! 592577

The roof rack is a Christmas present for my son, so I don’t have a picture of it set up yet,I ordered the wrong item so I had to cancel it, then I had to call back and reorder it, everyone I spoke with was super nice and very helpful, no problems with the cancellation. I would defiantly order from etrailer again and would defiantly recommend to a friend 591919

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2016 BMW X3 and Cargo Box That Works With it and 2014 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Let's start with the roof rack, and the one your husband will need depends on if the 2016 BMW X3 has a naked roof or if it has rails on the sides that run front to back. For a naked roof, I recommend the Rhino Rack 2500, which consists of the Fit Kit # DK295, Legs # RRRLKVA, and Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA126B-2. This rack will clamp onto the roof of the BMW and comes with locks to secure the rack to your roof. The best part of this rack are the aero crossbars, which will dramatically...

  • Best Way To Carry Two Kayaks on a 2015 Jeep Cherokee with Raised Side Rails
  • The Rhino-Rack 2 Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs part # S512-S512X is one of my favorite kayak carriers on the market. The reason for this as you mentioned is that it will save a ton of space on the roof. This saved space could then be used for other accessories such as a bike rack like the Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack part # RRRBC050. The kayak carrier also has a folding upright so you don't need to remove it each time if you had any overhead clearance issues like a garage. It comes with...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2018 Honda Civic SI Sedan with Center Exhaust
  • Center exhaust makes installing a trailer hitch almost impossible. So for your 2018 Honda Civic SI sedan you'd have to go with a roof rack. The highest quality rack we offer for your vehicle that's not too hard on the wallet is the Rhino Rack Vortex Roof Rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK453 which is a confirmed fit. This has the quality of the super expensive racks but not quite the cost. I attached an install video and picture for this rack on a similar Civic as...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Volkswagen Golf with Naked Roof
  • The Rola roof racks like the part # 59736 typically come in at a much lower price point than other brands like Yakima and Thule. They are still decent racks that get the job done but they may not fit quite as well and sometimes have a bit of flex in the crossbars. The part # 59736 is a fit for both the 3 door and 5 door 2017 Volkswagen Golf so it will fit your 5 door. For a rack that costs a little bit more but would get you a substantial increase in overall quality the Rhino Rack system...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude with Flush Mount Rails
  • I recommend going with a roof rack that uses the aero-style bars as they have less wind noise and drag compared to the traditional square or round bars. The exact roof rack parts will vary for your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude depending on if you have the chrome track on your flush mount bars (also known as the E-Group package). If you do have the chrome piece (see attached photo) then I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex roof rack which uses Vortex Aero Bars # RRVA126B-2 for...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Roof Rails
  • There are two different type of rails that run front to back on the roofs of the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. There are rails that have chrome center sections and rails that are totally black. If you have the chrome center section I recommend the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2, # RRRCL4, and # RRRCP27-BK. And if instead you have solid black rails you'd want the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK234. The reason I recommend Rhino Rack is because Rhino Rack...

  • Recommended Option to Carry Bikes and Skis on 2008 Land Rover LR2 HSE
  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How to Prevent Crossbar Whistling with Rhino Rack Aero Crossbars
  • The bottom of the Rhino Rack Vortex crossbars do have openings in them which can cause whistling. The openings are typically due to the measurement sections that get removed for securing the bar to the feet. Best solution is a fairing which will direct air over the bars and prevent the whistling. For that we have the part # RRRF2 which would fit well for the part # RRVA126B-2 that you have.

  • What are the Differences Between Roof Bag on Naked Roof and Roof Rack Mounted Bag?
  • Apart from how the rooftop bags mount there is little difference between the cargo bags that go on the naked roof of your 2013 Kia Soul or one that attaches to a roof rack. To avoid having to put a pricey roof rack on your Soul, I strongly recommend going with a bag that mounts to your naked roof such as the Rightline Gear Sport 2 Rooftop Cargo Bag # RL100S20. This bag is waterproof, has 15 cubic feet of storage and is 44" long x 36" wide x 19" tall. You can mount the Rightline by running...

  • Comparing the Longer and Shorter Rola Roof Cargo Baskets for a 2007 Toyota 4Runner
  • I am happy to help you in determining which Rola roof cargo basket is best for your lifestyle and your 2007 Toyota 4Runner! The most important questions when comparing these 2 options is how much space do you plan on needing and will the larger basket stick out in front or behind your 4Runner? The smaller basket, part # 59504, measures 54-1/2" Long x 40-1/2" Wide x 5" Deep while the larger basket, part # 59504-EXT, has the same width and depth measurements and is just longer at 73-1/4"...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2019 Kia Sorento with Factory Flush Rails
  • Nice! I've got a friend who got a Sorento a couple of years ago and loves it. I recommend gonig with the Rhino-Rack Vortex aero bars # RRVA126B-2 with legs # RRSX023. The aero bars are great for reducing wind noise compared to the square or round bars. The Rhino-Rack system also includes plastic locks but if you want to upgrade them to metal locks you can. Use part # RRVA-LEC4. I've linked a video from when we installed this system on a 2018 Sorento. The parts and process is identical.

  • Roof Rack Requirements and Recommendation for Using Yakima SkyRise Tent on 2016 Toyota Highlander

So the best option we have for your 2016 Toyota Highlander will be the Rhino Rack roof rack part # RRVA126B-2, # RRRCH4, and # RRRCP37-BK which has a 220 lb capacity. This fits the versions of the vehicle that have a naked roof and factory fixed points. If instead you have flush rails that are on the roof of the vehicle you'd...
