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).

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. 877238

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. 837664

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. 707091

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

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.

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

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.

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. 854461

I bought this (with Rhino Rack Roof Rack Legs, and Yakima Skybox) for my 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback and it was perfect: it fit correctly snugly, it gave me all the storage space my family needed, and I felt safe with it on my car. This was my first time using and buying anything like this before and I found setup and installation easy, no special tools required. My advice is that you take your time and you'll have no problems. 851145

  • 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...

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

Then for a kayak carrier I recommend the Thule Hullaport part # TH848 as it fits the Rhino Rack bars well, is padded, can fold down when not in use, and if ever needed you'd be able to...

  • Best Roof Rack for 2017 Toyota Prius with Sunroof
    You may be able to still use your sunroof with a roof rack installed but probably not if you have any accessories mounted on the crossbars. If the mounting points go underneath the crossbars the sun roof will likely make contact with them. The rack I recommend for your 2017 Toyota Prius is the aerobar Rhino-Rack. You'll need the crossbars # RRVA126B-2, legs # RRRLKVA, and fit kit # DK467. I've linked a video that shows the rack on a 2008 Prius. The bars and legs are the same but...

  • Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Compatibility with Yakima Skybox for 2017 Honda Civic
    For your 2017 Honda Civic you will have no problem using a Rhino-Rack roof rack with a Yakima Skybox like # Y07335. Roof boxes and roof racks are compatible between manufacturers and you won't have crossbar spacing issues. For a specific fit on a 4 door sedan, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 49" Long # RRVA126B-2, the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and Custom DK Fit Kit # DK453. This system is rated for 165 lb max capacity. If you have the hatchback,...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Aero Roof Rack for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude with Black Flush Roof Rails
    I checked the photo you submitted which appears to show a 2019 Grand Cherokee High Altitude with black flush-mount rails that do not have a metal strip on them. We do have an aero-style roof rack for this roof configuration but it is not a Thule nor a Yakima product. The Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero rack system that fits your Jeep's roof is available in both black and silver bar options. Both appear on the linked page. For the black bar rack order parts # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK234....
