Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbar

This low-profile, aerodynamic Vortex Aero crossbar lets you replace a damaged bar, add a third bar to an existing rack, or build a stylish aftermarket roof rack from scratch. The crossbar requires a pair of Rhino-Rack legs (manufactured in 2014 or later) and a custom fit kit to mount it to your roof. This bar extends past the roof rack legs to maximize the space for mounting carriers and accessories. Rubberized Vortex strips in the crossbar's top channel disrupt airflow for a quiet ride, and the bar is constructed of aluminum so it won't rust. The crossbar also includes 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 this 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 crossbar cuts through the air with minimal drag - even at highway speeds.


Strong, Durable Construction

Vortex Aero crossbar H-shaped extrusion

The Vortex Aero crossbar is made of structural-grade anodized aluminum with an H-shaped internal extrusion. This extrusion strengthens the bar without adding a significant amount of weight. And the aluminum bar won't rust so you can leave it on your roof year-round.


No-Hassle Installation

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero bottom channel ruler

The 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

The 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 strip in the top channel comes in 3 pieces, so it's 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 bar, and the Vortex strip provides a shock-absorbing, no-slip cushion for any accessories that rest on it.


Built-In Security

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Secure Core locking endcaps

The 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 crossbar and help to secure channel-mounted accessories to the crossbar. For maximum security, you can upgrade to endcaps with all-metal lock cores (RRVA-LEC2 - sold separately).

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I have been using etrailer for many years and have never had a bad purchase. We are about to start traveling quite a bit with our 5th wheel. Putting our kayaks on the back of the trailer was not an option. I researched several roof top carriers and this package was by far the best value and quality. The Rhino rack is awesome, works extremely well with kayak "J" carriers and installed relatively easy. There was an issue with the measurements for the underside channel covers. For my Ram, they were short. But I always use the old adage of measure 2, 3 or 4 times. Cut once. Saved me a few problems here. As alway7s with etrailer, we are very pleased with the product, the serv ice and the information before purchasing.

Love the bars, I had gotten the other rack parts from different suppliers. I love the look and sleek design of the Rhino Rack. I did the 2500 vortex on a 2016 Subaru Impreza sedan and it fits great and looks even better.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


TLDR: It's a good product with (literal) strength, and some weaknesses. Its cheaper than the competitors, and its in stock now. I mainly bought this due to inventory issues from the other main competitors. That it costs about 100 bucks less is nice, but the reasons for the cost difference is noticeable if you've ever used Thule or Yakima products before. Installation was not more or less irritating than any other roof rack (I've installed MANY over the years). Materials are similar, but the plastic parts feel cheaper than Thule or Yakima, and they towers have exposed innards on the inside faces that make it look cheap, and may create more noise. The fit kit feet are good, but the hooks are 2 pieces pinned together instead of formed and cut to custom lengths. This makes them bulkier than the competition. Apparently they are rated for 33% more weight than the others, and that's cool if you need to haul heavy stuff on top. All said, I'd probably buy their stuff again in a pinch, or if I was trying to save money, but for fit and finish I would go with Thule or Yakima

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


This review is for the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Aluminum-Silver crossbars and associated legs and custom fit kit (RRVA137s-2, DK284, RRRLKVA) necessary for a naked roof installation on a 2018 Honda CR-V. Just enter the model and year of your vehicle and etrailers website will tell you exactly what additional items are necessary to complete the install. etrailers installation instructions and videos are very helpful. The installation document provided is for more than one vehicle and for more than one style rack, so take your time to understand witch measurements apply to your installation and refer to the installation video if necessary. ON that note: The measurements given for front rack did not fit as nicely on the roof as the rear rack, I adjusted the the front rack measurements slightly. I would suggest trial fitting on your vehicle before cutting the metric rulers to final length. Stick On tags are supplied to indicate front, rear and the location to install on your vehicle. Once the rails are adjusted and tagged you can remove and reinstall the racks very quickly. Korren was very helpful in keeping me informed as to availability of items in stock and email shipping tracking. I am very satisfied with etrailers customer service and happy with the appearance and functionality of the Rhino racks.

Easy to install. The pins on the legs clamp perfectly into the fixed points on the car's flush rails. This is a nice low profile set up. The top of the crossbar is about 4" above the roof glass and does not interfere with opening the sunroof. This is a very sturdy setup for our Thule Motion XT XL. etrailer shipped extremely fast. Very pleased with my purchase.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I am extremely pleased with this product and the etrailer.com. I would definitely purchase this item again and will look to etrailer.com for future purchases. The item arrived quickly and completely as described. The pictures and videos provided on the website ensured I got exactly what I wanted and helped guide the install. My only critique is I received three different installation manuals and didn't realize at first they were for different products. They were very similar so I didn't notice the difference prior to drilling the holes in my topper. Thankfully I did notice prior to creating any major problems, but I ended up adding a few more bolts than my application required (which means more holes drilled in my topper) and it was in metric instead of standard (should have been my first clue). I'm not sure why I received installation manuals for other material, so just take minute to make sure you're referencing the correct one. Additionally, measure multiple times, drill ONCE! I was very nervous to drill holes in my topper so I must have measured 6 or 7 times. I finally just had to go for it. The painters tape was very important for measuring and aligning and prevented my drill bit from sliding. I also used a brand new multipurpose drill bit.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Choosing a system for transporting my new (to me, they're actually used) kayaks was TOUGH. I love my little 2017 Honda Fit, and I knew I would love my new kayaks when I got them. I don't want anything bad to happen to either! Also, my car is small and the kayaks are fairly large, comparatively. I've strapped a lot of things to a lot of vehicles, but this is going to be a long term relationship, so I wanted to get it right the first time. I've been researching and reading reviews for months, but I got confirmation that the kayaks were ready for pickup, so I needed to make a decision! I ultimately pulled the trigger on the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars with the 2500 Series Legs and Custom DK Fit Kit for my naked roof car and the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs. I placed my order on 09/15/21 at 6 PM. The estimated delivery date was 09/23/21, which made me a little sad. I really wanted to pick up my boats on Sunday, 09/19/21, but I figured I'd waited THIS long, I could probably handle waiting another week. I was very pleasantly surprised to receive an email at 8 PM the same evening notifying me that my order had shipped. AND, even better, the UPS tracking was showing delivery on 09/18/21 by 7PM! I was beyond excited, but didn't get my hopes up because shipping has been pretty hit or miss since well before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, UPS delivered my package just before noon on Saturday, which was amazing! I got everything unpacked and reviewed to ensure that I had all I would need to assemble the system - check. Nothing missing, which is always an auspicious start. Then I started reading the instructions - UGH. This is (so far) the ONLY thing I have to complain about. I have put together IKEA furniture that had clearer instructions. I probably should have gone to Google to find a YouTube video, but I powered through with the instructions provided. Since I've never put together or used a roof rack before, I didn't really know what the final outcome should look like, so that made interpreting the instructions very difficult - the pictures were not super clear, and the accompanying text did not improve the situation. Now that I know what it looks like assembled, I get it, but at the time it was rough. I estimated it took me about 2 hours to get the rack assembled and secured to my car, and towards the end my fiancé arrived and helped me to realize that the foot pads were not properly attached to the feet, which made a huge difference! The kayak carrier was much easier to install, taking maybe 15 additional minutes. The foot pads rest in the groove on the edge of the roof, I assume over the frame of the car. There's absolutely no flex in the roof where the feet sit. The hook part of the clamp rests against the metal of the car, under the rubber seal, so I don't foresee any potential issues with the seal as a result of the rack. The doors close as normal, and the rack has no movement whatsoever once tightened down. I've now used it as a handle to pull myself up towards the roof a few times (I'm about 190 lbs), and I feel totally confident that it's not going anywhere. I now have ideas about how to use the rack to haul around the larger stuff that won't fit INSIDE my car (which isn't much - I HIGHLY recommend this car!). So, the big question - how'd it go with the kayaks? In short - perfection! I was slightly concerned about the boats overhanging the front or back of my car, as they're 12.5 ft long and my car is just over 13 ft long. Eeeeek! I needn't have worried. They fit like a dream, and even without bow or stern tie downs were very secure during our trip home. We took local roads instead of the highway because we didn't tie down the bow and stern, so we probably didn't go over 40 ish MPH, but I saw absolutely no lift (I can see the ends of the boats out of the front windshield). I will be using those tie downs in the future, and anticipate no issues with highway speeds under those conditions. Obviously, only time will tell how everything holds up/works out, but at this stage, I am extremely pleased with my decision and am looking forward to many kayaking adventures to come! I only have one picture at this point, but may take a few more and add them so anyone else considering a similar setup knows what they'll be getting.

The crossbars are great, but the rubber strip in the middle gets bunched up or comes out when loading heavy items across the bar. But the rubber provides grip, and the grip is amazing. I am not worried about kayaks or rafts sliding around. I do need longer ones though...

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Very nice rack package. Everything was complete, and install was easy 4/10. I had used another review for the hole spacing, as it was easier. Holes at each end 5/8 in then at 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, for a total of 8 on each rail. I bought the heavy duty set, that’s why there’s 8. The standard has only 6/rail. I marked a centerline on the cap, and put the rails at 36” on center. I used painters tape to be sure they were straight. I also measured , and laid out the holes on the cap and drilled a SINGLE HOLE at the 36” mark. Then verified that the end holes would hit the reinforced portion of my ARE cap. Once that was verified, I drilled the rest of the holes. Because of the camber of the cap, a second person is helpful (holding the rail tight to the cap) when tightening up the nuts from inside the cap. After that, the rest was easy. Just center the rail mounts and lock them in. I would definitely recommend this rack set up, Especially since it was half of what my local Yakima dealer quoted me. This was installed on a 2016 Silverado, 2500. Tools used- Tape measure, grease pencil, painters tape, 1/4” drill bit and Cordless drill.

Great product, Roc25 for my 2012 Prius. The bars are a little big and chunky, but I like that they don’t protrude off the side of the roof, and that they are quiet (light whistle I only hear with the windows open). The roof can only handle ~100 lbs so longer more utilitarian bars would be useless. Great for a small roof box and maybe a single bike.

I found the bars very nice. I like then as well as the Thule Aero bars my daughter has on her car and these are a lot less expensive. They were a little more work to install, but I took it slow and there were no problems. I took a 200 mile trip after installing them, nothing on them, and I didn't really notice any problem with noise. I have had square bars on other cars and you could really tell they were up there even with a deflector. I would do these again if I need another set for something.

I searched a lot of websites before finding what I needed on etrailer.com for my 2012 Suzuki GV. I was looking for the proper mounts to install a Kayak rack system. Because my vehicle has a built in rail system it was very confusing what was needed. Thank you etrailer for hooking me up with the appropriate parts for the Rhino system, it worked great!

I really like these flush rails! Because my Honda Fit's roof is already sort of in the danger zone for me hitting my head every time I bend down to put the kid in the car seat or whatever else, having traditional crossbars stick out into space beyond the roof line would have been a recipe for a black eye. Installation was very quick and secure, and road noise isn't bad at all.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Bought this a few weeks ago and finally got around to installing it yesterday. Overall it is very easy to install. I assembled everything in my shop and set the rails about 1 inch wider that what I actually wanted them to be. Put the whole assembly on the roof the the camper shell and centered using a soft seamstress tape measure. Once centered I marked the holes, i then cut the rails down 3 inches and put it back on the roof. I am real OCD so everything was measured precise and equal. Once I was ready to drill holes I measured everything again and once I got up my nerve I drilled all 16 holes in the roof. I did not use the butyl supplied with the racks, instead I used windshield urethane ( I installed windshield in a previous life). I then lined everything up and installed the rails. Before screwing down I put some large D-rings in place and the tightened the lock nuts. The D-rings will allow me to hang things from them. Now I am just waiting to strap my surfboards to the top and head to the beach.

At first I didn’t know how to get the end pieces off because I thought it was locked and didn’t know where the key was. After pulling one of the ends pieces off, I saw that the blue key was inside the crossbar next to the measuring strips. Took me a minute but figured that part out, but the instructions were easy to follow. Can’t wait to test it out on my Kayaks! I have this installed on my Toyota Corolla LE 2013.

I purchased Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars with Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs (RRRLKVA) and Fit Kit (DK284) for my 2020 Honda CR-V EX Hybrid. The rack was easy to assemble and took about an hour. The only tool not supplied that you need is a sharp knife or scissors to cut the rubber strips to length. Once assembled, the installation took about 30 minutes, making sure to measure accurately for placement. I used blue painter's tape to initially mark the locations. I then placed the white marking arrows (supplied) to align with the marks on the tape. I then removed the tape, placed the racks aligned with the arrows, and tightened the clamps. This product seems well made and engineered (I'm a retired mechanical engineer). Kudos to Rhino-Rack and to etrailer for selling it.

Just installed this rack on my 2015 CRV with a naked roof and it took a little over an hour. Simple instructions and assembly but be sure that your feet are in the exact spot recommended. After initial install, the foot on the front driver's door caused a very minor drip/leak from the door seal during a heavy downpour. Simply moving it 1/16" took care of the leak. Great rack and I hardly notice any noise driving on the highway.

  • Adding Single Bar Roof Rack To 2010 GMC Sierra 1500
    If you are looking for a single bar roof rack to use on a 2010 GMC Sierra 1500 I have a great option in the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System part # RRVA137B, part # RRRLKVAH, and part # DK227H. That said, we don't have the discontinued clips you are looking for sine they are no longer made.

  • Single Bar Roof Rack and Hitch T-Load for 2019 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab
    To do a single bar Rhino Rack roof rack for your 2019 Nissan Frontier you'd need the # RRVA137B, # RRRLKVAH, and the fit kit # DK108. Then for a hitch mounted T-Load you could use the # RTL002 and you'd be set. There isn't a way to do a single bar roof rack using the square bar Rhino Rack you mentioned.

  • Recommended Half Roof Rack for 2017 Nissan Frontier
    For your 2017 Nissan Frontier 4 door, the Thule bar you will want is not able to be separated into a half kit. It is simply # TH711420, # TH710501, and # TH145160. My recommendation for you is to instead use Rhino-Rack # RRVA137B, # RRRLKVAH, and # DK108F. This also comes with the locks to secure the half rack to your roof.

  • Thule Storage Box Compatibility With Rhino Racks Aero Bar Crossbars?
    If you are using the Rhino-Rack Aero Bar Crossbars like # RRVA137B they have a dimension of 54" long x 3-1/8" wide x 1-3/16" tall which works for most Thule boxes that use the PowerClick quick-release clamps like the Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box with LEDs - 13 cu ft - Titan Matte Gray Item # TH613500. These boxes will also work with the Rhino Rack Euro Bar # RREB126B. The Vector Alpine Rooftop box is literally the NICEST cargo box I have ever had the pleasure of installing....

  • How To Haul Multiple Ladders On The Roof Of A 2016 Ford Transit Connect
    I have two options for you to consider in order to carry a ladder/ladders on the roof of your 2016 Ford Transit Connect. One of which is designed specifically for ladders and will require you to remove your current factory side rails whereas the other will not. My recommendation for hauling a ladder/ladders will depend on the amount of time you will be hauling the ladders on your vehicle. For daily ladder hauling, I recommend using the TracRac TracVan ES Van Ladder Rack part # TH29611XT...

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2015 Honda CR-V With Naked Roof
    We do have a roof rack that will work for your 2015 Honda CR-V. What we have found is that you cannot have factory side rails added to a vehicle after it has been delivered but we have a solution for you. I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Roof Rack. This features anodized aluminum aerodynamic crossbars with a rubberized Vortex strip in the crossbar top channel to disrupt airflow for a quiet ride. Along with the crossbars the system uses the Series 2500 Legs that include locks to secure...

  • Can Tonneau Cover and Ladder Rack System be Installed on 2005 Toyota Tacoma at the Same Time
    Unfortunately all of the ladder racks offered for the 2005 Toyota Tacoma are going to use the inside of the bed rail for installation so this would interfere with a tonneau cover but I may have a solution for you. Take a look at the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender, # EM07600-07601, or Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Bar, # RTL002. I have included a picture that demonstrates how this can be used for a ladder. This style of rack will require that your Tacoma be equipped with a 2 inch...

  • How to Carry 2 Kayaks on a 2015 Toyota Tacoma
    There are several different ways you can carry 2 kayaks with your 2015 Toyota Tacoma. First, you could put them in the bed of the truck and use a tailgate pad such as # S64761 to protect both the truck and the kayaks and to secure the kayaks to the tailgate and pad. Another option is to utilize your trailer hitch (as long as it is a 2 inch hitch) and half of a roof rack. It sounds a little strange but if you put one crossbar on the roof and then used the Yakima LongArm, # Y01149-1150,...

  • Can a Hollywood Racks 2 Bike Add-On be Added to the # HLY84FR to Carry 4 Bikes
    The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HLY84FR bike rack for electric bikes cannot have one of the add-on Hollywood Racks bike racks, like # HR1475Z, installed to make the rack able to carry 4 bikes. The best option for you to carry 4 bikes on your 2012 Honda Odyssey van would be to use a roof mounted bike rack along with your hitch mounted rack that you already have for your hitch. If your van already has a roof rack with crossbars, then I recommend the Malone Pilot TC ST Roof Bike...

  • Parts Needed to Carry a 16' Canoe in a 2017 Toyota Tacoma Short Bed w/ Deck Rail System
    Simply put, the best option is going to be a combination of both a roof rack and a ladder rack. You can use the Rola Haul-Your-Might T3 Truck Bed Ladder Rack # 59799. This ladder rack is designed to be used with the rail system in your 2017 Toyota Tacoma and will provide you with crossbars that are similar to roof rack crossbars. Because of the length of your canoe you will also want a single crossbar on your roof. For that you will need the following items. The Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar...
