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).

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


Comments
These bars are hanging in there and holding on strong! My Discovery Sport is in the elements 99.9 of the time and the paint on these crossbars is not faded and there is no rust. The rubber seems to be holding up in the hot Louisiana sun. Ive pinched the very grippy rubber strips with heavy loads, so that is showing some wear, but otherwise its rock solid. The plastic endcaps dont feel brittle and theyre still quiet and strong. Thank yall for a great product for this vehicle!

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

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

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.

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 ?
-- comment by: mike - 07/29/2014

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.

2016 Ford Escape

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 bought the following for my Honda CRV (2015) with sunroof: DK284, RRRLKVA, RRVA137B-2. This assembly was extremely straightforward and easy. It took me a little over an hour to assemble everything and attach it to my car. I will be using the roof rack to carry my kayak. I will say the crossbars are a tiny bit loud with my sunroof open, but with it closed its like there is nothing there. 860236

Bought the 54" long rails for my 2015 Chevy Traverse. Rhino Rack was the only aftermarket option I found for this vehicle. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the construction and finish of the product. Installation was straight forward with clear easy to follow instructions. Wind noise isn't bad on the highway. Plan to mount a rooftop cargo box to them for family trips. I expect to get many years of use out of them, year round. 837116

This review also includes the cross-bars as a set with the clamps. When I received the product, a rubber insert was missing that goes along the top of the racks. Without it, the wind would make a very noticeable - and annoying - whistling sound. When I emailed customer service about it, they were very professional and apologetic and immediately sent me the missing parts. The product is very easy to install. It does look a little funny on top of our van as the bars extend over the sides too far, but that is not too unexpected given it wasn't designed specifically for our vehicle. 821735

Easy install. One can do it yourself with no problems. Rack is great. Not to high from the sides and not to short, so it looks great. Very sturdy and durable. Lots of room for luggage and other equipment. Only complain but not really would be when 75+ mph does make noise but not to much. ***family of 5, 2adults 3kids*** 820478

For this, I recommend using the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System which consists of part # RRVA137B-2, part # RRRLKVA, and part # DK234. The reason I recommend this system for you is because it has all of the features (aero crossbars, channel mounts) that the higher end options like Thule and Yakima have but...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for Basket and Bag on 2017 Honda Pilot with Bare Roof
    Any of the aftermarket roof racks we offer that are designed to fit your 2017 Honda Pilot can be pretty easily removed if desired, but all still have the capacity to safely support a carrier and bag during travel. In fact with most roof rack systems (even "temporary" systems) you will really be limited by the capacity of the Pilot's roof itself, as the roof racks are generally rated higher.

  • Transporting 2 Kayaks while Pulling Trailer with 2014 GMC Sierra 2500
    As you referenced in your question, there are a variety of potential options for transporting your kayaks while towing an enclosed trailer with your 2014 GMC Sierra 2500. To avoid any possible interference issues and concerns regarding the integrity of a dual hitch for this application, I recommend going with a complete roof rack system on your Sierra. This will also allow you to still use your dual hitch for a bike rack as you mentioned. The Rhino-Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack, which consists...

  • Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier Recommendation for 2016 Ram Promaster City
    For your 2016 Ram ProMaster City with a naked roof we have the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLT600, # RRQMFK18, and # RRQMFK19 as the rack I recommend. Reason is this rack installs easily, gives you aero shaped bars which minimize wind noise and can easily have canoe carriers installed on it like the Thule Portage # TH819 which holds the canoes upside down.

  • Trouble Unlocking Side Plate on Rhino-Rack Foot Pack for Roof Rack
    That's the one thing that I've had problems with too when installing Rhino-Rack roof racks. For some reason their keys can be a bit difficult to operate on the leg kits, like the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA. Try jiggling the key as you move it into the cylinder and rotate the cylinder. You might even need to take the key out and insert it the other way to get it to work. If that doesn't work then you'll want to check that the number on your key and the number on the face of the cylinder...
