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).

I bought the roof rack to carry kayaks back and forth from Pennsylvania to Florida. The rack is solid and performs that task very well. My plan was to take the rack off and on but I decided to just leave it on. I do notice some wind noise since I've added the rack but it does not distract me and I would say that it is not excessive but it is noticeable. I did have problems during the installation. I mounted the racks on a Ford 250 super duty. And the instructions were very clear as to where the feet that's support the rack where to be installed. Plastic strips are cut and the feet that support the rack on the roof push up to the cut plastic strips and that is what determines placement. I read the instructions several times and had seen an installation on another truck owned by a friend of mine. When I pushed the feet to the proper position I could not attached the clamps from the rack feet to the rain gutter on the truck which holds the whole assembly on the roof. They were too short. I spoke to Etrailer and a consensus was that I had cut the strips correctly. Etrailer's input of course was over the phone and they could not actually see or measure anything that I did. Nevertheless, in order to install the rack I had to move the feet on each side a bit closer to the rain gutter on the truck. I did not think that this would make any difference and based on the performance I have not noticed any problems. I would have given this product and excellent rating if I did not have to deal with the little problem that I had with the fit. As I said I have not taken it off the roof and I reach up and check it now and then and it's as solid as the day I put it on. 706965

I decided on the 65” instead of the recommended 59” for my 2018 F250 Crew. Before I did I called etrailer to confirm that the crossbar would be ok using the custom DK Fit and Rhino Rack 2500 series legs. The guy confirmed and I placed the order. Everything does fit and quality is great but all I received was measurements using the 59” bar. Something is different between these two bars and etrailer couldn’t help me out. I figured it out myself and determined the bracket distance on the bar so it fit properly. Rhino Rack should offer the proper bracket measurements for all 3 Areo Crossbars ( 59, 65 and 72 ) as they pertain to Ford F-250 “17” and up. They all fit - as bracket is in the same spot on the truck. Great quality solid rack. I’d give 5 star if it wasn’t for this 860273

The rails are awesome, very well made and finished. It would be even better if I didnt have to machine out the slot some more to make it fit ny car. The channel was about an inch each side too long. Had to pull out the dremel and carbine reamers to make the channel longer to move the tower in closer to fit my car. 803785

2014 Ford F-350 Super Duty

I have attached pics of the rack attached to a 2014 F-350. I went with the 65” crossbars and they worked great! This gives me enough room to lay two kayaks flat on the bars. I would rate the Rhino Rack roof kit , etrailer site information and etrailer customer service all 5’s! Always great to deal with your company. My only recommendation would be to make it easier for customers to submit product reviews and pics. Thanks for all your assistance. 540318

2015 Nissan Rogue

Where do I start? I've been whitewater kayaking for 22 or so years now. I've always used used either Yakima or Thule products... Until I bought a 2015 Nissan Rogue with a naked roof. The curvature of the roof and large door jams mean that Yakima and Thule can't make racks for them. I went to a place that does custom installs and again because of the curvature of the roof, they couldn't give me a rack. This meant no kayaking which is really bad news. Enter the Rhino rack system. I purchased the feet, the fit kit, the cross bars and a Yakima "big stack" stacker. The first issue I had is the reccomended size for the Nissan Rogue is only 48 inches. Way too small too haul 4-5 (very light) whitewater kayaks. I called etrailer and they were SUPER helpful, told me I can buy the 65 in cross bars and they'll work fine. I held my breath and placed my order. I was nervous leaving my trusted name brands. The order arrived super fast (they told me it would arrive by Friday but it actually arrived on Thursday) and everything was packaged rock solid. I was impressed. I read the instructions and put the rack system on my car. It took about a hour (it was hot and I worked slowly) but the rack system is SUPER SOLID. I love it. Rhino might have a "forever" customer out of me. -The rack system is very stable. I can't move it with my hands by pushing or pulling. -The rubber stripping you put on the top and bottom of the bar is an awesome added feature AND it reduces wind noise. -Adding the fairing reduced wind noise even further. With four boats on the roof you couldn't hear any extra noise. The ONE thing I dislike is that you need to use the supplied Allen wrench to take the rack on and off the car. It's a small complaint, but other systems I've used in the past don't have them. I paid much less for this system than I would have if I purchased one of the aforementioned systems, but I'm really really satisfied with the product. We will see how well it holds up over long-term use, but it looks awesome! 411248

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


My inital thought of these crossbars were that they were going to be too small. Two of the other big makers call for 53" min and 60" recommended. However after installing, 49" is a perfect fit for the Cayenne I feel. The rack is extremely quiet (make sure you use the channel rubber on top and bottom) The Cayenne is fairly quiet car inside and it was one of my big concerns but I only hear what sounds like a slight rush of air, no buzzing or whistling at all. The downside to this rack is I think the black paint is too thin. Just laying it on the pavement while setting up caused scratches to appear. Silver would be the way to go if your getting these, or spray them plastic. 877238

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Bought this kit for my 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because the install instructions weren't clear. To be fair, I should have measured the fixed points on my car on my own rather than relying on the provided spreadsheets. It only took me between 5-10 minutes to make the neccessary adjustments as I was mounting the crossbars and was a pretty easy fix to make. Just frustrating in the heat. Also, when tightening the mounts to my car, I wasn't aware a wrench would be needed and didn't have any available. Had to buy a set, and none of them fit properly (bought in inches, should have gone metric I suppose?) Other than that, great product. Bought a kayak mount to put on and held it well for a 500+ mile trip. 9/10 would reccomend. 855769

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

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

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I purchased the Rhino Rack roof rack as an alternative to the factory installed products and the more popular Thule and Yakima brands. The Rhino Rack is solid and sleek and is largely silent while driving (if I have the roof open you can hear a soft whistle). Not only does the rack look fantastic, but the non-slip top and the strong bars make carrying things on top a real pleasure. 837664

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Overall I like the rack. Aero bars are quiet, rubber grip strip on top is nice. Product is high quality. My only gripe is the mounting feet and it’s fit on the Mercedes Metris. Each foot is only able to utilize one bolt hole on the factory placed mounts. Using 2 per foot would be much better like in most other applications I imagine. But once it’s all assembled and installed (which is very easy) it seems fine. Height spacer blocks are perfect, bars are all on the same plane. Looks good too! etrailer also has real people working customer support who answer the phone and help you out. I highly recommend the rack and buying from etrailer! 756541

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


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

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

Fit is good, sturdy rack, video instructions are great and easy to put on. Locks are not that great but will work for me. If someone really wanted to get to the bolt they could easily break the lock covers but then they would have to have the correct wrench. I would still recommend this as a great after market rack. 588056

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

This will give you a really durable, sleek, and quiet roof rack on your truck cap. To secure the 2 kayaks to the crossbars I recommend two of the etrailer.com J-Style Kayak Carriers # E98878.

  • Recommended Bike Rack and Ladder Rack or Roof Rack for Fishing Kayaks on 2002 Chevy 2500 6.5 Bed
    The Thule Low-Rider Bike Rack - Fork Mount - Bolt On # TH821XTR can mount to your Weather Guard toolbox. I recommend using the sealant # LT37467 to make sure your toolbox remains water tight at the mounting holes. For your roof rack I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 65" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA165B-2, the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and the Fit Kit # DK227.

  • Rhino Rack Batwing Awning Crossbar Compatibility
    The Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00427 do have the channel but the weather strip on the inside will make the install difficult. If you need the Rhino-Rack Batwing Awing # RR33400 to be safe, you need to get the Rhino Rack Vortex Crossbars # RRVA165B-2 or the Heavy Duty Crossbar # RB1120B-2 but you'll need the adapter kit # RR33101. There is a awning that will work with your current Yakima JetStream Bars, Its the Yakima SlimShady Awning # Y07409.

  • How To Use the Thule Hullavator on a 2017 GMC Yukon XL
    In order to install the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier part # TH898 on your 2017 GMC Yukon XL with flush side rails (only option) you must have an aftermarket roof rack with at least 4" of overhang past the mounting feet. The factory roof rack for your Yukon XL does not have this overhang which is why you need to go aftermarket. I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System part # RRVA165B-2, part # RRRCH4, and part # RRRCP43-BK. The Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers for 2008 Toyota RAV4
    For your 2008 Toyota RAV4, you can use the longer crossbars you referenced. The restriction in most states is that the crossbars can't exceed the side mirrors. It sounds like you already have a factory roof rack which means you have the raised side rails. My recommendation for your desired roof rack is the Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Raised Factory Side Rails - Qty 4 # RRSX100 and the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 65" Long - Qty 2...

  • Recommended Feet for Roof Rack To Fit 2.1 Inch Pipe Bed Rails
    The Thule Evo Raised Rail Feet for Thule Crossbars - Factory Raised Rails - Qty 4 # TH710401 will not fit a 2.1 inch pipe nor will the Yakima TimberLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y00147. They are not designed for that diameter. Your best option is the Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Raised Factory Side Rails - Qty 4 # RRSX008 paired with bars that are the proper length for fit. 49" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA126B-2 54" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA137B-2 65" Long - Qty 2...

  • Best Type of Crossbar To Use with the Thule Hullavator on a 2017 GMC Yukon XL
    The Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier part # TH898 can indeed be used with both square crossbars via clamp-on attachments as well as aero crossbars via the track system. However, I would not say that one is stronger than the other. Roof rack manufacturers do extensive testing on their track systems and I cannot say I have ever heard of anyone having an issue with the tracks deforming. The main reason I recommend using aero crossbars is because they are much quieter than the square crossbars....

  • Crossbars for 2013 Mercedes Benz G-Class for OEM Roof Cargo Box
    In order to get your cargo box to fit, I'd recommend going with Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars. The crossbars are elliptical which will be much more aerodynamic and will lead to much less turbulence and wind noise. The Vortex Aero crossbars have channels running across the top that would accommodate the bolts from your cargo box, as long as the heads of the bolts are between 7/16 and 7/8 of an inch in width. For a 2013 Mercedes Benz G-Class, you'd need the following parts: 65 inch...
