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 channels 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 shock-absorbing, no-slip cushions 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.

Great roof rails. They sit relatively low to the roof; which combined with the Aero profile give a great look. 226575

I'm absolutely in love with Katie, my sales consultant for her great help & excellent follow up. Fully expecting cheap Chinese junk. I was delighted with the quality of the product, (Rhino Rack) which was received day after New Years. Pretty cool when order was placed Dec 29th. Simple illustrated instructions made pre assembly a snap. Wind chill is 2 below zero so I'm going to wait a day or so to mount to car. Two thumbs up from me! 331614

Cross bars are great! Easy install. Except for the little plastic strips that go under and between mounts. They can be a bear to measure and install properly,but definitely need to go on to avoid any whistle noise. Just gotta say what a great experience it is dealing with etrailer. Rep, Kelly was very helpful in part selection and order processing. I will most assuredly use etrailer again for my next Jeep accessories purchase. 258541

Please see my review about the Rhino Rack Legs for these Aero Crossbars. They work great! Very little noise, if any at all. My only issue was the lack of documentation. I had to figure out how to get the end caps off myself (and if I didn't have the legs, which came with a "key", I wouldn't have been able to get the end caps off because the "key" is stored within the runner of the Crossbars). Anyway, so far, these have worked great. I put a Rola roof carrier on them. So far, it's holding up well. We're taking them on a trip from Charlotte to several places in Michigan the week of 4th of July. They'll all get a good workout then. 265337

So far so good. The Aero 2500 racks went on in a couple of hours as I was not in a rush, wanted to do it properly and understand all I needed to to remove and reinstall these in the future. I did manage to get the Rhinorack logo facing backward on the front and forward on the back. Sorry, didn’t intend to but I’m not going to reverse them at this point. I did not take pics of these on my 2017 Prius. But they look good, less clunky than my old square Thule racks. 512463

The racks fit perfectly! They are a great fit to my car. They don’t interfere with the sunroof’s operation. I assembled it on my own with no difficulty. It was easy to assemble. The directions it provides to you are easy to follow. The only down side was getting the plastic pieces to lock on the ends of the bars. Other than that they are great and they look great on my car! I plan to use them to transport kayaks! They are very sturdy and very trust worthy for transporting a couple of kayaks. I recommend these racks to anyone who has a 2016 or 2017 Nissan Altima! 487588

After finally obtaining the correct roof rack for a 2012 Chevy Impala, installation was fairly easy, and the finished installation appears very secure. We did do a test run with a kayak attached, which was both stable and quiet (3 photos attached showing final installation before test run). 388669

Love my new roof rack system. It's been sturdy enough to handle two kayaks on my little Camry. Would definitely recommend this option before looking for a car with a standard rack. 713698

First a big thanks to the Support Team! One of the Vortex Strips that ship inside of the load bars was wedged in there when I received them, and on top of that, not enough of the strips were provided to cover the entire length of the load bars. the etrailer team got them for me from Rhino-Rack and sent them out to me ASAP. Installation was fairly simple. I highly recommend watching the installation video on YouTube in addition to reading the instructions. The instructions are well written, but watching someone else do it made it super easy to understand. Installation took me roughly 1 1/2 hours, mostly because I didn't watch the video until i was about 3/4 of the way done. The racks are very sturdy and make no noticeable wind noise! Grabbing the towers and trying to move or shake them, I am actually moving the car, not the racks. I haven't strapped anything up yet, but I have full confidence that these racks can handle my needs (3 kayaks tied to a stacker system). 679906

Very tough, sturdy, and well built product and easy self install! We installed on a Corolla IM hatchback in no time with the help of "how to" vids on etrailer.com. The vids saved us an additional $100 wanted by a local install company. We teach and our little family travels all summer. This product is a life saver. With additional roof basket, we can now carry all our luggage and camping gear with a compact fuel efficient vehicle rather than a gas hog. 608448

Purchased full Rhino Vortex 2500 roof rack kit for both a 2012 & 2014 Honda Civic (kit fits both sedan years). Tried a Sportrack but feet fit on car roof was terrible. Rhino kit is far superior (pay for quality). Assembly was easy, as was installation. Appears to be a very secure fit. I will send pictures soon. etrailer has been very good to deal with.

I bought these racks about a year ago for my 2014 Mazda 3 hatchback. They installed easily to the fix points on the car. After the initial fitting, I can install or remove them in about ten minutes. The quality is great and they are holding up very well. They are very quiet and make an excellent, sturdy base for carrying my Thule Roof box. I was also very pleased with the prompt and courteous service I received from Etrailer. 387152

This is a great roof rack, VERY sturdy once attached! I used it to carry two kayaks on the freeway multiple times and it was flawless. It is quite loud, but that is to be expected with this type of roof rack. Having the sunroof open doesn't help either... :-) 352492

The instructions were clear and the rack installed perfectly. I am impressed with the custom foot mouldings that match my car's contours exactly, and the rack is still as tight as when I installed it 4 weeks ago. I have been using it frequently to pick up 8' lumber for a large shelving project I have underway, and I hope to soon use it to carry my kayaks. The rubber strips on the top hold the lumber so securely I have no worry of having the load slip off the car. The two negatives I have are: (1) the crossbar end-caps consist of 2 locking and 2 slip-ons. I have come out to my car to see 1 of the slip-ons half slipped-off and I expect I will lose one or both of them in short order; and (2) the instructions should put the forward bar at least 1 inch further forward. As you will see in the photo, Rhino's guidelines result in the front bar being higher than the back bar, which results in additional wind pressure on the goods being carried. Finally, I would like to thank etrailer for shipping the product exactly as promised and also for packaging the entire order in an additional box as I requested. I found your service to be outstanding! 250787

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

All the Rhino Rack products listed, ie Nautic kayak carrier,anchor straps,2500 series legs,and Vortex crossbars were shipped extremely quickly by etrailer, with exceptional customer assistance, and were all found to be of the highest quality materials. Installation was relatively simple with an assistant and the video by Rhino Rack was a valuable tool...once on my car, the system proved to be safe, secure and as sturdy as I could hope for. I would certainly recommend Rhino Rack systems in future, and will certainly rely on etrailer for any of my future needs. 662698

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


THE GENIUS OF A PERFECT SOLUTION It is not very often that a purchase for something as mundane as a utility device stirs such awe inspired appreciation and praise. I have just completed the installation of the RLCP Rhino Heavy Duty Canopy/Hard Tonneau Track Mount atop my A.R.E. Camper Shell. I am amazed at the attention to detail of each and every part which has been carefully engineered and perfectly manufactured. I am truly impressed by the genius of a perfect solution to my roof top cargo handling needs! From the mating surfaces of the injection molded towers and the lightweight, but durable extruded anodized aluminum crossbars, to the gentle contour of the rail stock to the camper rooftop, every single part has form, fit and function! The finished product is beautiful, durable, convenient, and for the money invested, economical. I give Five Stars of Praise to the Aussie friends at Rhino-Rack Australia Pty, Ltd. Equally praiseworthy is the superb performance of e-trailers, Inc. These folks distinguish themselves from the competition through their superior attributes of website presentation, pricing, order fulfillment and package integrity. This is a unique distribution partnership which is imbued with the highest standards of e-commerce. Job well done, everyone! 528546

This review is for the install. I will update it after I have had these rails in service for a while and can judge how well they stand up. First the instructions were very clear and I had no issues performing the assembly and installation. Once locked in place they appear to be very stable and secure. 641563

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.

I was looking for a good looking product to carry my two kayaks with our camper. the product arrived in the time they said it would and was packed very well. after reading other reviews on assembly it was suggested that you read the directions first. after reading the directions I couldn't find some rubber strips so I called you company and they were very friendly and helpful and I found them I just didn't look in the right place. then started to assembly the roof racks and within 25 min. they were installed. would recommend the product and company. 411346

All items arrived when George said they would, and I was given status updates throughout the whole process. The website was helpful in letting me know that these kits are NOT all in one kits. That is probably the best feature of the site in that it lets you know based on your vehicle what total number of kits you will need. All said, the racks and carrier worked well in transporting my canoe across state lines. I highly recommend the site. 486963

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


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.

  • 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...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Highlander
  • I recommend the Rhino Rack roof rack for your 2019 Toyota Highlander because the rack gives you aero shaped bars which will be very quiet, the racks are easy to install and well made, and because most roof racks that are nice as this cost quite a bit more. Now if you have the flush mounted rails on your roof that run front to back you'd want the part numbers # RRVA137S-2, # RRRCL4, and # RRRCP31-BK. Or, if you have a totally naked roof you'd want the part numbers # RRVA126S-2, # RRRCH4,...

  • 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...

  • Will Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Fit 2018 Toyota 4Runner with Raised Side Rails
  • Based on the stock photo you sent, it sounds like you are looking for a roof rack that will work on a 2018 Toyota 4Runner with raised side rails that run front to back. There is a great option from Rhino-Rack though not using the specific part you asked about. Instead, you will need the following parts: - Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA126B-2 (Black) or # RRVA126S-2 (Silver) - Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs # RRSX100 This roof rack uses aerodynamic bars that have rubber vortex...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a Roof Top Tent on a 2014 Nissan Rogue
  • For your 2014 Nissan Rogue, I recommend the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero kit, consisting of: Rhino Rack Vortex Aero bars, 49 inches, Silver, part # RRVA126S-2, or Black, part # RRVA126B-2 Rhino Rack 2500 Legs for Vortex Bars, part # RRRLKVA Rhino Rack DK Fit Kit for 2500 Series, part # DK396 This is a great kit for your application because the bars are supported from underneath. Though this isn't a completely permanent kit (It uses clamps) it does have supported bars, a key feature for...

  • Kayak Carrier and Roof Rack for a 2017 Nissan Rogue
  • For carrying a Kayak on almost any vehicle, I recommend aero style bars, as their width is a better platform for the shape of the kayak. For a rack kit, I recommend the RhinoRack Vortex Aero kit, consisting of: Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, 49 inches long, Silver, part # RRVA126S-2, or Black, part # RRVA126B-2 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs for Vortex bars, part # RRRLKVA DK Fit Kit for 2500 Legs, part # DK396 This provides you with a solid rack for your vehicle.

  • 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 and Kayak Carrier for 2019 Ford Edge with Panoramic Roof
  • The roof rack recommended for your 2019 Ford Edge is the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System because it is a bit more cost effective than other top tier options like Thule and Yakima but you still get the same level of quality and it even comes with locks whereas that would be extra for both Thule and Yakima. If your 2019 Ford Edge has flush side rails then you will need part # RRVA126B-2 or part # RRVA126S-2 and part # RRSX024 but if you just have a bare roof with no flush side rails...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback
  • Starting with the roof rack for your 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback I highly recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex system that consists of # RRVA126B-2 for the two 49 inch Aero Crossbars in Black or # RRVA126S-2 for Silver, # RRRLKVA for the 2500 Series Legs, and # DK485 for the Custom Fit Kit. I really like the Vortex roof racks because they match up in quality to the higher-end systems but do so at a much friendlier price point. The two aluminum aerodynamic bars will provide you with a really...

  • Installing Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Bars on a 2016 Ford Edge
  • The Rhino Rack SRB Towers, part # RRSX024 don't require any drilling to install, and will work on the Ford Edge whether or not you have the glass roof. The SRB towers install by clamping to the raised side rails and locking in place with included steel locks. This makes removing them if you don't want them on your vehicle extremely easy. Your crossbars will remain attached to the top of these foot packs and can have locks added to them with part # RRVA-LEC4. Your completed kit...

  • Best Roof Rack for a 2015 Mazda 3 5-door with Fixed Mounting Points
  • For the 2015 Mazda 3, you'll only have access to either Yakima or Rhino Rack roof bars. Both are great companies and there's a few differences that are important to note about the two companies. Rhino Rack doesn't produce as many accessories, but is a smaller than average bar and fits more mounting hardware in both its C-Channel and around the bar. Additionally, its locking system is two part, one for the foot pack and one for the c-channel accessories as a separate part. Finally,...

  • Roof Rack Availability that Fits Both a 2006 Mazda 3 and a 2014 Honda Civic
  • We do offer some roof racks that may fit together but if you could provide a litte more information on both vehicles it will help me narrow down which parts you can use. On your 2014 Honda Civic, is it a 2 or 4 door, and on your 2006 Mazda 3 is it a 4 or 5 door and does it have the fixed mounting points or not?

  • Roof Kayak Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Honda Odyssey EX-L with Moon Roof
  • Foam block carriers such as Swagman Coastal Kayak Carrier - Foam Block Style Item # S65156 are designed as a temporary, short-distance solution to carry a kayak. On a van that has sliding side doors they wouldn't work because on a naked roof it would require running straps through the interior of the vehicle. You would instead need a roof rack for your van. I can make some recommendations if you can tell me the year, make, and model of the van.

  • Recommended Roof Rack Crossbars for 2016 Ford Edge with Flush-Mount Roof Side Rails
  • For your 2016 Ford Edge with flush-mount side rails we can offer you roof crossbars in either an aerodynamic/elliptical design or a basic square bar design. Aero-style bars are quieter at highway speeds but both types are fine for carrying a cargo load. You also have some choices in the length and color of crossbars you can install; all options are shown on the linked page. For a high-quality OEM-looking rack I suggest the Thule AeroBlade Edge system with black bars, consisting of parts...

  • Rhino Rack Crossbars for 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport w/ Flush Mounted Roof Rails
  • For a 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport with the flush-mounted rails, all you would need is the Rhino Rack crossbars, part # RRVA126S-2 and the # RRSX031 leg kit. The leg kit is designed to attach directly to the flush mounted rails, and no fit kit is necessary. I have confirmed this with Rhino Rack.

However, Yakima has since stopped production on the RailGrab Roof Rack components. If you do not already have the RailGrab Roof Rack, then I recommend instead looking at the Rhino Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack, which consists of parts # RRVA126S-2 and # RRSX028....

  • Recommended Roof Rack, Ski Carrier, Bike Carrier & Kayak Carrier for 2015 BMW X3

For black crossbars, you'd want to use part # RRVA126B-2 and the # RRSX026 roof rack legs. For silver crossbars, use # RRVA126S-2 and the same # RRSX026 legs. Rhino Rack offers many different accessories for carrying bikes, kayaks, skis and snowboards. To carry 2 pairs of skis or a snowboard, use the # RR572 carrier. For 4 pairs of skis or 2 boards, use # RR574....

To add this system on your Prius v you need the Crossbars # RRVA126B-2 Black or # RRVA126S-2 Silver along with the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and the DK Fit Kit # DK195. This system has a weight...

They are also available in silver, # RRVA126S-2. For a leg kit to mount the bars to I recommend # RRRLKVA and for a custom clamp kit to attach to the roof I recommend # DK323.

  • 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...

I also recommend checking the capacity of your vehicle's roof as listed in the owner's manual. You will need to stay below the lower of the two limits. This is a very nice roof rack system that features two 49 inch Vortex Aero Crossbars for a quiet and low-profile design. The SX Series Legs will simply clamp onto the factory raised side rails...

  • Does Rhino Rack Vortex Rack Fit a 2016 Kia Sorento with Sunroof and Side Rails
  • For your 2017 Kia Sorento the Rhino Rack # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX023 is a confirmed fit. It will also allow the sunroof to open since the bars will be high enough not to interfere. I pulled up pictures of your vehicle with the sunroof open and it does not stick up hardly at all. You should note that with the roof rack installed there will be quite a bit of wind noise with the sunroof open.
