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).

Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars Review

Hey guys. It's Randy here at etrailer.com. Today we're doing a demo on the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars. These are aluminum aero-shaped crossbar, of course they're designed to work with your Rhino Rack fit kit or leg kit, those are going to be sold separate.As you can see here, this is going to give us a spot on our roof to clear up a lot of space inside our vehicle. We've got a bike rack attached here, simply comes down, straps right around it. Gives us a excellent way to get that transported if we don't want something hanging off the back of our vehicle or if we don't want to take the whole thing apart and try to shove it inside.The aluminum crossbars are going to be lightweight and they're going to be very corrosion resistant, we're not going to have to worry about any kind of corrosion and eventually it dripping down on our vehicle.Now these crossbars are available in several different lengths, so depending on smaller vehicle, larger vehicle, we're going to have the right crossbar to match up with your vehicle.

They're also going to be available, not only the black that we see here, but silver. If you don't like the way a black roof rack looks, you can see with this silver side rails kind of blend in a little bit more if we had silver. That's kinda going to be up to you.The end cap here is something that they have provided a plastic core lock for. You just place this in here, rotate it to the unlock position, that's going to slide off for us. These can very easily be replaced with a locking core if you want a keyed lock to keep everything safe and secure, you can go that route also.Not only does our strip here keep our items from sliding side to side, but it's also going to protect the channel underneath from things running down in and for T-Slot type accessories this thing can be cut, put right back in.

This is going to do an excellent job of eliminating any noises that wind comes across. It won't get in that channel, we're not going to hear any of it.The bars are anodized fully through. Even on the inside here, if moisture happens to get in there and collect, we're not going to have to worry about corrosion. These give us excellent strength. You can see it's hollow, that helps it to stay nice and lightweight, but we have all the integral support here, gonna make 'em extremely, extremely durable.

They will really exceed well past that 165 pound weight rating that they offer, but it's not something you wanna do.The larger rectangle that we have here, that's where we slide in any of the foot pegs that we might need to match our particular vehicle.To ensure that you're accessories that you already have are going to fit or to ensure that you're getting the right accessories, just want to give you the dimensions real quick on our crossbars. From our front edge to our rear edge, we've got about 3-1/8 of an inch, then from the bottom up to the top, it's going to be an inch and 3/16. As long as your accessories are designed to fit that, which most of 'em on the market today are, won't have any issues.I really like the way this roof rack system looks. There are roof rack systems however, that will not overhang like this. Overhanging like what we have here, that gives you additional room for accessories and stuff.

Some people they'll prefer more of a factory look or more of a sleek look. In that case, I think I'd recommend one of the roof rack systems that come and end in the foot pack. We'd have our bar that comes over, but it's going to end right here in this area and be a little bit more sleek than what we have here with our overhanging aero bars from Rhino Rack.That's going to do it for our look at the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack Crossbars.

We had the challenge of how to carry 2 kayaks this summer in addition to hauling a 30 foot gooseneck horse trailer. We have F450 crew cab with custom truck bed. We hoped to use the "head ache" bar on the truck bed to support the rear sets of Swagman Rincon supports and purchased a single Rhino Vortex bar for the forward sets on top of the cab. We have 10.5 and 12 foot kayaks and this looks to be an excellent solution. The kayaks are clear of the gooseneck trailer even in a "jackknife" position. Please note the truck bed is extra long therefore there is plenty of room forward the nose of the trailer. We have not hauled yet but will convey any issues if there are any. eTrailer tech support was excellent. Product shipped as projected. Installation took approximatly 3 hours. 360920

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

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. Here are some pictures of the product on my Civic. 524507

I bought the Rhino-Rack for my 2014 KIA Soul "with a sun roof" and my wife and I installed it in about a half hour. it was soo easy and fits like it was manufactured just for my car. Everything I saw said that it was not for cars for the sun roofs but i measured and checked several friends before I ordered and bought and there looks to be no problems. It fits very well and the clearance is very sufficient. I can now carry my wood or kayaks or larger stuff around. 327874

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

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

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

I bought the Rhino Rack 2500 Series Legs, the Vortex Aero Crossbars, the 2500 Series Custom Fit Kit for the 2500 Series Legs, and a Thule Portage Canoe Carrier. 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

Rack is very high quality. Quiet ride at all speeds. Installation video extremely helpful. The only issue I encountered was that the mounting bolts were bearly long enough to get through thickness of truck cap. I had to remove plastic thumb nuts and use thin fender washers to make it work. Very stressful situation after drilling 12 holes in my cap! These bolts need to be longer to allow for different thickness in caps. Otherwise, very satisfied with this rack. 603056

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.

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


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

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


The rhino rack is well made but suffers from the flat bottom rubber feet. Since nearly all cars and trucks have roof seams, foot pads should be stepped to engage the seam like other racks such as Thule does. It's unlikely that very many different shapes would be needed to fit most vehicles. Rhino tech didn't agree with my assessment. 420713


Comments

Rack is working out very well. My issue with the flat rubber pads really cant be resolved because the seams on the Ram arent deep enough to allow a stepped pad. Ive also had a problem with the filler rubber strips coming out when sliding boats on. Overall, its a very good rack.

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

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


These crossbars were easy to install, are sturdy when installed and look great on my factory side rails when installed with the SX Series legs. The standard end caps are an all-plastic affair and use a little key to engage a cam lock. That plus the distance from the end of the crossbar to the nut that tightens the foot onto the rail keeps things relatively secure. Most people probably want to opt for proper locking end caps, though. The rubber vortex strips look nice and give items something grippy to rest on. I haven't tried a load test yet but did drive around in moderate wind on the highway in multiple directions. Other than a slight whistle at 70 mph, you'd never know they were there. Overall, real happy with the product and looking forward to hauling some stuff around with them. 248807

My Rhino-Rack Aero 2500 roof racks fit solidly on my 2007 Honda Civic EX. I was really impressed with the construction and strength of the rack system. Also the versatility of the 'legs' with a swivel pad allow them to fit any roof pitch perfectly. The clamps are so solid, nothing could knock these racks off. I added a paddleboard attachment and went surfing today. The black racks also look great with the black trim on my silver Honda. Great product at a much better price than Yakima or Thule. 395557

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


These slick looking, quality made, aluminum, aero bars came with the RLCP25 kit, to fit my FJ Cruiser. It didn't have the big, bulky, useless for carrying much of anything factory rack. I like the look of the full size racks/ baskets, but didn't want to spend $800 + truck freight to get one. These cross bars are perfect for carrying my 14' canoe, plus whatever else with various cargo carrying accessories. They are light, yet combined carry near 100+ lbs. of gear. There is a rubber strip in the top slot, bottom slots and plastic strips to seal those, once you slide the feet in the correct distance to be even on both sides for your vehicle, and black, plastic end caps to finish it off. You'll need a tape measure and 10mm socket wrench to attach to the feet, then re-tighten periodically for safety. They look great on mr ride, and I can deal with the rubbing/ humming sound, after putting them on, although it does sound like my tires rubbing the fender wells... 84838

Im still loving the Rhino Rack setup, including the Nautic 581 saddles. They bars were easy to remove for winter snow clearing, and to put back on in the Spring for my new kayak. The rack and straps all work great, and I recommend etrailer to anyone that asks where I got it.

The racks look great and are solidly anchored. I have yet to use them under load but I am pleased with the final product so far. My only complaint was that the assembly process is difficult to understand unless you Google the help videos. The assembly process is confusing and tedious until you gain an understanding of the overall setup. 413891

Installed on a 2013 Explorer. Went on perfectly with the SXB legs. Bars extend past the legs 3" for a very nice appearance. Silver bars/black feet on a silver Explorer is perfect. Will likely use the bars to mount a cargo carrier on (16-18 CF) but haven't done it yet. Just the most faint/slight whistle at 65 MPH. Can only be heard with no radio on. Absolutely no issue. Solid as a rock. 286955

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.

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

No problem with the rails after two long trips with a heavy cargo carrier attached. Easy to install. Look good. Stronger and cheaper than Audi rails. 459649

Great product! It fits my Ford Edge perfect. I took a 2000 mike trip without any issues. The cross bars look very nice and the price is very competitive. I would recommend these items to anyone looking to save some money with great quality products. 518447

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


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

Product was just as described. Instructions were very hard to read because they look like a copy of a copy and many of the pictures were very faded, but once you decipher them, installing the roof rack was pretty simple. It seems to be pretty sturdy and now I just need to start shopping for all of the attachments! 184747

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Product is installed on 2015 GMC Sierra extended cab with a fiberglass A.R.E. bed cap (6.5' bed). System works well and the bars are strong and solid. The cross-bars and risers can be removed quickly and easily (with the proper key) leaving only the pads clamped in place on the rails. Cross-bars and risers can be installed on the pads very quickly. Installation was straightforward and easy, except for the rubber strips that fill the grooves in the crossbars - those were the most difficult part of the installation - to get those to seat correctly (so I lowered rating by 1 star). 545668

  • How to Carry a Canoe While 5th Wheel Towing with a 2016 Ram 2500 4-Door
  • To carry a canoe with your 2016 Ram 2500 while also towing a 5th wheel trailer you need a front mount hitch, a roof rack, and a carrier or padding to protect your canoe. If you have the front tow hooks I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65063 because it doesn't require any drilling or fascia trimming for the installation. If you don't have the front tow hooks then I recommend the EcoHitch # 306-X7900 instead which essentially is the same thing but it comes with the...

  • Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Ford F-150 SuperCrew
  • There are ways you can carry 138 pounds worth of kayak with your 2017 Ford F-150 but I need a little more information. Are you wanting to carry them on the roof, above the bed, in the bed, somewhere else? Will you also be towing a trailer at the same time and if so what kind of trailer (5th wheel, bumper pull)? The location you intend to carry the kayaks will determine the best options.

  • Single Bar Roof Rack Recommendation for 2018 GMC Sierra 1500
  • We have the Rhino Rack Single bar roof rack part numbers # RRVA150B, # RRRLKVAH, and # DK377H which is a fit for your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500. The crossbar is an aero shaped bar that will minimize wind noise. The bar is listed as having a 165 lb capacity. At this time we don't have a SeaSucker single crossbar option.

  • Single Bar Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-150
  • For a single bar roof rack for your 2017 Ford F-150, you can purchase a single Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar, # RRVA150B for black or # RRVA150S for silver. You will also want the half leg kit, # RRRLKVAH, and the single Custom DK Clamp and Pad, # DK427H.

  • Roof Rack and T-Load Bar for Hauling 2 Kayaks on a 2017 Nissan Titan
  • I recommend using a Rhino-Rack set up for your application. This includes the Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2, the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and the DK Fit Kit # DK468 for the roof rack. Then you need the Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist and Support Bar # RTL002 which fits a 2" hitch. The parts above give you a full 2-bar roof rack which can be useful for multiple applications but if you are only wanting a 1-bar roof rack you need parts # RRVA150B, # RRRLKVAH, and # DK468H.

We do have a product such as the 2013 Dodge Ram Pickup Roof Rack by Rhino Rack that fits 2500 and 3500 Regular Cab with no existing rails or crossbars.

  • How to Carry Kayaks on Roof of 2012 Ford F-250 Crew Cab While Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • I think you have the right idea using a front mount hitch and the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600-07601 on the front of your 2012 Ford F-250 Crew Cab. For a front mount hitch I suggest using the Draw-Tite # 65049. The hitch has a vertical load capacity of 500 pounds which will be plenty for your kayaks. I've attached an install video for you too. For a single crossbar roof rack you can use the Rhino-Rack Vortex consisting of: 59 inch Vortex Aero Crossbar # RRVA150B 2500...

  • Making a Type of Ladder Rack for a 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • I do have a solution for you but there are no ladder racks confirmed to fit the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. What you can do is use a specific Rhino-Rack set up to create the next-best thing to a ladder rack. For this you would need to have a 2 inch trailer hitch, which should be on the vehicle already, and the following parts: Bar # RRVA150B Legs # RRRLKVAH Clamp Fit # DK470 Yakima LongArm # Y01149-1150 The fit kit will allow you to place the crossbar on the roof in either the front...

  • Carrying a Kayak and Paddleboard while Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2012 Ram 2500
  • For your 2012 Ram 2500 I do recommend the Thule Goalpost # TH997 because you will need the wider crossbar to carry both a kayak and a paddleboard. The Darby does use a strap for the roof rack part but not to worry because you can get a single bar for your Ram that attaches to the vehicle in the usual way. For this you will need 1 of half fit kit # DK043H, 1 of half pack of feet # RRRLKVAH, and 1 bar # RRVA150B. For a kayak carrier I recommend the Rhino-Rack universal carrier # S510....

  • Thank you for noting the different roof rack fit information between our site and the Rhino-Rack site. I checked with my technical contact at Rhino-Rack and it was confirmed that you are in fact correct - 59-inch crossbars are indeed specified for your 2006 Wrangler. We will be updating our fit information - thanks again for your keen eye.

  • Availability of Single-Bar Roof Rack for 2016 Ram 1500 Crew Cab with Naked Roof

This 59-inch aluminum crossbar is an aero-style that will generate less wind noise than competing bar shapes. If you plan to use the roof bar along with a hitch-mounted load support you can refer to the linked page which displays such products.

Now you might want to consider a different option since you want to a trailer behind the truck.

This will give you a single crossbar roof rack combined with a hitch mounted crossbar to easily carry both kayaks.

A much more stable setup though would be the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA150B, # RRRLKVAH, # TH997, and # DK190H. I attached a review video for this setup for you to check out as well.
