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 - 2018 Honda CR-V

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Honda CRV we're going to be test fitting the rhino rack vortex aero roof rack system. This is going to consist of part number RRVA137B-2. These are the vortex aero crossbars that you see here. These also come in silver as part number RRVA137S-2. We'll also be installing part number RRRLKVA. These are the 2500 series legs for the vortex aero crossbars, excuse me, for naked roofs.

And finally part number DK284, and this is the fit kit specifically for the Honda CRV.We already have our front bar installed. And the vortex aero roof rack system is great for carrying a wide variety of accessories on your roof while freeing up space inside your CRV. This can carry anything from bike racks, to cargo baskets, to cargo boxes, and it has plenty of space to install multiples of certain accessories too. They have an elliptical shape to them, and that coupled with the vortex aero strip at the top is going to help cut down the wind noise and drag while you drive. And we also have these end caps here that those plastic locks can be removed and changed to regular locks to secure it to your vehicle.We also can see that you can utilize T track accessories with this as well.

You would remove the vortex arrow strip, insert your accessory, and then cut the strip the length around it, and then you'd be good to go. Another thing to note is if you we're to purchase the lock for the end here, you could also secure your T track accessories in place as well. The end caps do come with locks already installed, so it's going to be secured to your roof once it's installed. And it simply just clamps around your existing doorframe, and that's how it sits in place. We have the front bar installed, and we have our rear bar partially assembled on our table over here.

So let's go ahead and show you how the rest of it goes together, and then place it on the rear.On this table you have everything that comes with the kit once you get it. We have the bar itself, 2500 series legs, the fit kit, and the strip and tightening tools, and locks necessary to install everything. We'll start first by taking our leg here, excuse me, and placing that on the other end. To make things a little bit easier, we'll flip our bar upside down, and we'll come to this side. This bracket here at the top is going to slide in to our channel at the bottom here like so.

And looking at the instructions, they'll give you the measurement of how far to come back here. Now normally you would utilize the strip that comes in with it, cut that to length, and then tighten everything down that way. But for demonstration purposes, We'll just go ahead and use our flat tape here, make it a little bit easier on us.And then we'll take our included tool, and we'll tighten down the screw in the center here. It's good. Next, we'll take our fit kit and start installing it, making sure that the arrow and the number corresponds properly with which foot you'll be installing like so. And then finally, we'll take our clamp here, and to install that you first must remove the bolt in the center here all the way. And reinstall it loosely right now. There we go. And then we'll take our end cap, put that in place. Take our included key here, and lock it down. Now we can open up our rear doors and start installing our bar into position.Make sure our car is unlocked. When we set this in place, we want to be as gentle as possible because we don't want to scratch up the roof. I hope not anyway. And then we'll get that straightened out on both sides. Our next step is we're going to measure from center to center on the bars and get the crossbar spread even on both sides as well. And again, you'll find this in your instructions. The proper measurement that is. With that done, then we can take our tightening tool, and we'll first push it up against our doorframe here, and just tighten it down to where it's snug up against that. And once you do that, we'll give it about five or six turns on each side until it's completely tightened down.And one of the neat things about this tool, you see that it has a curved end here. As you tighten it down that'll straighten out, and once it's straightened out you know it's torqued, or tightened, to its proper specification. Kind of a neat way so you don't over tighten or overdo it. Like that. Our final step, take our end caps here, lock those in, and then we're ready to load up our gear and hit the road. One thing I'd like to give you real quick before we're finished, is I'd like to give you a couple measurements focusing on the front bars from the center of the roof, to the bottom of the bar to be about three and a quarter inches. And from the center to the top, to be about four and a half inches. So that's more than enough space for your accessories that wrap around the bars where it won't come in contact with the roof or damage it.Also, that's plenty of space for you to still utilize your sun roof here. Both bars have a combined carrying capacity of 165 pounds, but you always want to double check with your vehicle's manual before you use those weights, and go by the smaller of the two measurements. And there you have it for the rhino rack vortex aero roof rack system on our 2018 Honda CRV.

I bought this roof rack for my kayak. Previously, I was just using ratchet straps through the car. I finally got fed up because when it would rain the water would drain in through the straps into the car. I looked a long time and did a lot of research. The Rhino is definitely the best bang for your buck. Super rigid, easy to install, simplifies travel, and looks great. Etrailer, even with the 4th of July, sent the rack quickly. The direction specific for my Honda Cr-V was also very comprehension. Thank you! 539768

These things are strong and quiet! I have them mounted on my Land Rover Discovery Sport using the SRB legs by Rhino Rack. I've had furniture, lumber, ladders, tools, canoe, and a roof rack piled up there at some point or another and I don't have to worry about them slipping at all!!!! I've done this so much that the rubber strips are showing some wear and have frayed a bit where they've pinched the aluminum, but it's still rock solid. That's my only grip. Hopefully the replacement strips are affordable when I replace them in a year or two. I'd buy another Rhino Rack product in a heartbeat. They look great on my car and are strong and quiet on the road. I feel I made the right choice. 604273

Excellent price and quick shipping. Excellent support for missing bar end cap. Rack was easy to put together and install and video was helpful. My only complaint is when trying to tie down kayak to cradle it is not easy to keep the loop over the top of the upright "U" shaped bar, it keeps siding down. We wrapped two pieces of foam around the bar to create a channel to hold the strap now it is easy. 557941

The Rhino Rack is very well made. I installed it my self on our 2016 Ford Escape, but had an assist from my wife to fine tune it at the end. There was no whistling or any other distracting wind noise on our 3,500 mile drive to visit family out West. A Sear's Cargo Box was easily mounted to the Rhino Rack and it remained centered and secured at western highway speed limits plus. The included locks on the roof mounts were the selling point for me. The Rhino Rack remained securely mounted to the roof with no additional adjustments or tightening being needed. Great Product. Donna P. @ etrailer was super with the order. 548034

I would not recommend this product to anyone, in fact as soon as i get to my destination i will be returning this product. The issue is this, as soon as you go at or above 40 MPH, the rack whistles like a flute at different pitches! It is very, very loud and annoying. I have tried positioning the rack in different positions, removed parts, and covering certain holes, but it still whistles! Huge defect. Also, the wind caused by driving on the highway, caused one of the covers for the end of the rack to come off! 142542

I have the same issue. How do you stop it ?

One way to alleviate wind noise is to use a fairing. Depending on the length of your cross bars you will need to choose the corresponding length faring. Rhino Rack offers the following fairing lengths: 32 inches long # RRRH1, 38 inches long # RRRF2, 44 inch long # RRRF3, and 50 inches long # RRRF4.

-- Rachael H - 7/29/2014

Comments

In my experience any whistling is caused by gaps in either the rubber on top of the crossbars or the underslot on the bottom of the crossbars, where you slid the legs in. All holes both top AND bottom must be totally plugged up, and all end-caps must be firmly on too.Ive reached out to Rhino directly for the parts to do this and theyve always helped me out without issue. You should try the same I bet they would help you too. Especially with the blown out end-cap they sent new ones to me straight up.

I completely agree. I just installed mine today and theyre whistling at different tones depending on your speed. Loudest cross bars Ive had in my life =

You need to plug all channels both top and bottom to stop the flute like whistle sound. Use the 3 rubber strips to plug the top channel and the plastic ruler that helps you figure out your positioning can be cut and used to fill the underside gap on either side of the leg. This fixed the whistle completely for me.

2013 Honda CR-V

I own a 2013 Honda CRV I purchased a couple months ago. It has a naked roof and no rack or side bars, and I wanted to be able to carry up to three kayaks. I didn't really want to buy and install the side bars, and then the cross bars also. I also needed the cross bars to be a little wider than the vehicle itself, as I own two Ocean Kayak Scupper Pros, and a Venus. This Rhino Rack package looked like a great option for my needs. Weight wise, the three boats come right to the limit. Other racks had lower weight limits, and wouldn't work. I had a couple issues with the initial package, but etrailer took care of the problem right away, and sent out what I needed. Installation was pretty smooth. I recommend reading and rereading the instructions, before you cut anything. The videos on the etrailer website or directly on YouTube are very helpful to see all the steps. I'd like to see more personalized instructions added in the future, just to to make everything even smoother. Make sure you identify your vehicle and the bar you received on the kit instructions before you start. These bars are so wonderful. The aero bars make no noise when driving and no whistling that I can tell. They don't seem to effect my gas mileage. I made sure the top rubber strips and bottom measurement strips were cut perfectly with no gaps, as this is important to prevent whistling. They look so stylish. I get complements on them, and people can't believe they are after market, and that I installed them myself. They really complement the vehicle. Once installed the first time, I can take them off or put then back on in about 12 minutes. I don't really plan to take them off though. I don't use car washes, and I like the look of them on my vehicle. I made sure to not overtighten them, and then tightened them a few times over the next week and with a couple kayaking trips. These babies are strong and I can't make them move when I test them. I still check them regularly to make sure they are secure, for safety purposes. I highly recommend this Rhino Rack package. They know how to make the perfect roof rack and you can tell the quality and thought that went into them. Look at my photos I have included. Thank you to etrailer for such great service. You made the whole process so pleasant and easy. 243603

It is working very well. I have had others ask me about it, as well as sharing info myself and referring them to you. Im still loving it. Will use even more this summer. Three kayaks Ive loaded max. Also building materials not at the same time. And it looks so stylish, I leave it on year round. Also, people are jealous of the non slip grip.Thanks for following up.

Fairly easy to install onto my 2017 Honda CR-V. The crossbars feel very sturdy and are securely attached to the vehicle. Took me about 30 minutes to get it installed and could be done even quicker if you get help from another person. The bars themselves are a little fat so my Thule ski rack has a super tight fit. There is very minimal wind noise, so I'll probably be getting a fairing for that. The instructions felt a bit jumbled but with just the measurements alone, you can install it with a bit of common sense. 590932

Extremely sturdy and well made. I also like the locking endcap design. Only thing I dodnt like is the rubber channel strip is 4 separate pieces instead of one long strip. Maybe they do that so you can remove a section for installing accessories, but id prefer to simply cut it where needed. 524226

Got a MDX A-Spec and didn't want to put on the factory side rails and cross bars because it diminishes the sporty look. This rhino rack is a great solution for me because i can put these cross bars on for the top box and bike rack but can easily take it off to get back to the original sleek look. I'm happy with the product. Solid construction. I'm confident this will hold the load well without harming the car. I'm looking forward to using my original box top and my new bike racks. Also, thrilled that i can use this rack on my volvo too just by getting the volvo clamps. Great service from Michelle S. She answered all my questions and got me in the right products. Delivery was FAST. My only suggestion/improvement: the installation instructions. Had to read them a few time to 'get it'. It seemed overwhelming initially but the installation was pretty straight forward. 666049

Solid product. The bars themselves are well made, sturdy, and the added rubber strip on top of each helps to reduce slide. The installation wasn't terrible, but definitely plan to put some time into this in order to do it properly. Of special note, and while obnoxious, get the measurement and cuts spot on for the underside plastic/measuring pieces that go on either side of the mounting legs. I have had zero whistle with my installation and think that it may have to do with spending time, at least trying to get those pieces cut as close to the correct sizes as possible. I did seem to be missing the hex screws for the legs that allow easy removal, so I had to use the temp. bolts used when the rails/feet are not installed and one would use the cover plates. 577416

Jesse was great by answering all my questions and made me feel comfortable ordering the roof rack. Then it even showed up a day early!! It took us about an hour and a half to put the rack together and install it on our car. We did have to get online to watch the video because the printed instructions were great for the measurements, but not on how to put all the parts together. Before I wrote this review, I wanted to check out the performance - and once again, GREAT! I will recommend this product and etrailer.com to everyone. 558023

The rhino rack has continued to perform above and beyond our expectations. Since we dont have to take it completely apart when not is use, we install it on the car in under 10 minutes, ready for a kayak or 2 stand up paddleboards. Well worth the investment!

Just bought these for my 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport And they look great! I don’t know why someone would pay double the price for the Thules when these look exactly the same. Great product! 480624

I bought these racks for my Ford Transit and I couldn't be happier with the racks or the service from trailer. The rhino racks added a nice touch to an awkward looking van with its great looks and perfect functionality. Reading reviews about other racks making howling noises while driving made me a little hesitant , but am pleased to say, no noise whatsoever. I've added a basket to the racks and everything has worked perfectly. We do a lot of traveling,(2 adults,4 kids, 3 dogs) and the racks have provided exactly what we needed. Thanks etrailer for the best price and great service 434279

I've used roof rack systems from Thule and Yakima in the past and this system is far better than anything I've seen from either of those companies. The instructions are great (the kit came with detailed instructions that are specific to my vehicle), the parts all have a very high level of quality, and the whole system works really well together. I like that I can take the racks off my roof to have a clean look and then put them on only when I need them. Once I got the initial setup done (which was about an hour), it's a matter of less than 15 minutes to put them on or take them off again (I could probably do it faster if I was in a hurry). 406721

Do you have a question about this Roof Rack?


  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Honda CR-V with Naked Roof
  • For your 2019 Honda CR-V with a naked roof I recommend the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK284. This rack fits directly to the factory fixed mounting points on the roof of your vehicle and gives you a high quality roof rack at a better price than the more expensive rack brands. The bars are also aero shaped too which helps prevent wind noise.

  • Best Roof Rack for 2018 Ford Edge with Vista Roof
  • There is absolutely an option for you! The best roof rack for your 2018 Ford Edge with the Vista glass roof is the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack because it gives your car a rack that is extremely functional while maintaining a clean, refined look. The Rhino-Rack RS 2500 is available in two colors, Black # RRRS659B or Silver # RRRS659 and uses low-profile aerodynamic bars to ensure you have a quiet ride. The rack's aero bars combine with the rubber vortex strips in their top channels to...

  • Recommended Roof Rack And Rooftop Cargo Carrier For 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • For your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, you can get a factory roof rack and carry a rooftop cargo carrier without issue. The aftermarket roof racks can give you more diversity for other uses. If you go this route, I recommend the Rhino-Rack roof rack consisting of the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 54" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA137B-2 and the Rhino-Rack SRB Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Flush Factory Side Rails - Qty 4 # RRSX032. This system gives you aero crossbars that are...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Ford Explorer with Raised Rails
  • I have a similar solution for your 2017 Ford Explorer, but the Rola rack you mentioned will not fit your 2017 Ford Explorer. Instead you'd want the Rhino Rack kit part numbers # RRVA137B-2, # RRVA-FK2-2, and # RRRLCP45. This is an aero bar kit that is designed specifically to fit the factory raised rails of your 2017 Ford Explorer and would be a great option.

  • Can a Roof Rack Be Installed on a 2015 Honda CR-V with Sunroof
  • You can certainly install a roof rack on your 2015 Honda CR-V however, it is not advised to open the sunroof due to both wind noise and the potential for interference. The correct roof rack for you would depend on the roof configuration of your vehicle. If you have a bare roof then I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System which is composed of the crossbars part # RRVA137B-2, mounting feet part # RRRLKVA, and fit kit part # DK284.

  • 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...

  • Roof Rack, Cargo Basket and Canoe Carrier Recommendation for 2014 Ford Transit Connect
  • Based on the picture of your 2014 Ford Transit Connect you have a naked roof so for installing a roof rack we have the Rhino Rack roof rack that consists of part numbers # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLT600, and # RRRTS535 which would work great. This rack attaches to the factory fixed mounting points on your vehicle roof that are designed for crossbars. Then for a cargo basket the Yakima LoadWarrior part # Y07070-74 would be a great option that has plenty of cargo space and will fit the Rhino Rack...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2019 Dodge Durango
  • For your 2019 Dodge Durango I highly recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Roof Rack System. This roof rack consists of the two 54 inch Vortex Aero Aluminum Crossbars in Black # RRVA137B-2 or Silver # RRVA137S-2, the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and the Custom DK Fit Kit # DK299. The reason I really like the Rhino-Rack systems is because they really match up well in quality to the higher-end brand systems but do it at a much friendlier level in terms of cost. These Vortex bars will provide...

  • Will Rhino Vortex Roof Rack Work With Thule Pro Hullavator
  • I checked on the dimensions and the Rhino Vortex Aero Bar Roof Rack for your 2015 Toyota Highlander with flush mounted rails should work with the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier, Item # TH898. You will need to check and make sure you have sufficient clearance between your vehicle and the Hullavator when it is lowered which means your crossbars on the Hullavator loading side must extend 4 inches to 8 inches beyond the feet (see picture). You will also need to check and make sure that...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2017 Kia Sedona
  • You can absolutely install an aftermarket roof rack on your 2017 Kia Sedona. In fact, an aftermarket roof rack is typically stronger and more durable than factory installed systems. As long as your vehicle's roof has flush mounted rails that run front to back, I recommend looking at the Rhino Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack. This system, which is confirmed to fit your Sedona, consists of parts # RRVA137B-2 and # RRSX023. This will provide an extremely quiet roof rack with two 54 inch, aerodynamic...

  • The roof rack I strongly recommend for your 2019 Honda CR-V is the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack because it gives your CR-V a rack that is highly functional with a refined look. The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack is made up of: - Crossbars # RRVA137B-2 (Black) OR # RRVA137S-2 (Silver) - Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA - Fit Kit # DK284. This roof rack uses aerodynamic bars that have rubber vortex strips in its top channels which greatly minimize the amount of wind noise and drag you might...

  • Roof Cargo Bag Recommendation for 2018 Kia Sedona with Raised Rails
  • While we don't have a roof rack solution that's going to allow you the spread you want we do have roof cargo bags that can attach to a roof with just rails like you have that you might be interested in. For that we have the Rightline Sport 1 part # RL100S10. Or you could install a roof rack like our Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA137B-2 and # RRSX023 which will have the tighter spread but then you could use a cargo basket like the # RMCB02 to hold your current bag.

  • Recommended Crossbars for 2010 Toyota RAV4 for Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier Compatibility
  • Thanks for the photo. Because you have the raised side rails, the best option is to use the Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Raised Factory Side Rails - Qty 4 # RRSX100 and then use bars that will give you the additional length needed. I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 54" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA137B-2. This combination will give you the bar length and support you need for the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier and Lift Assist with...

Then for a ski rack we have the Thule SnowPack # TH7326 which is a confirmed fit for these crossbars can hold up to 6 skis and is priced great.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers for 2011 Toyota Camry with Fishing Kayak and Regular Kayak

It also would be just fine to get through a car wash.

  • Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar Compatibility with Thule and Yakima Roof Bike Carriers
  • Yes, the T-Track hardware included on the Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack # TH599000 will let you install it properly in the top channels of Rhino-Rack's Vortex roof crossbars. On your 2012 Scion xB you'll want to order and install Rhino-Rack parts # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK152 to complete your roof rack. The Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 and HighRoad # Y02114 bike carriers you referenced will also fit the roof rack but these will install by clamping around the bars. For the HighRoad...

  • I'm not 100 percent certain what you mean by "threaded sleeves" but if your have a 2015 Ford Transit Connect with a long wheelbase, you will need to drill holes in your roof in order to attach the Rhino-Rack RT-Style Roof Rack Tracks # RRRTS535, which is what you will mount the rest of the roof rack system to; there are no threaded holes with which to install this rack. Once the tracks are in place you will complete the installation by adding the Roof Rack Leg Spacer Blocks # RRQMHD05-2,...

  • Rubber Strip to Fit the Channel on the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars
  • The only thing that we have which has been tested to fit in the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Bars, like part # RRVA137B-2, is the Replacement Vortex Strip for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRM626. This strip is 15-3/4 inches long and was created to fit right into the channel on the Vortex bars. This could have happened from the strips possibly getting too much UV exposure. Leaving the crossbars on your vehicle for long periods of time can take its toll on equipment. This could also be...

  • How to Use the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars on a 2017 Toyota Highlander

However, you will also need the RCH Legs for Rhino-Rack Crossbars and Pioneer Platforms part # RRRCH4 in order to use your Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars part # RRVA137B-2.
