Whispbar Through extended-length bars installed

The Whispbar Through is designed specifically for carrying a ton of gear. These extra-long crossbars extend beyond the roof-rack legs, providing you with maximum space to mount carriers and accessories. This lets you add an extra bike rack or kayak carrier to your roof rack.


Whispbar Through airfoil shape

Designed with the aerodynamic shape of an owl wing in mind, the Whispbar produces less drag - and therefore less noise - than any other roof-rack style on the market. But don't let the elegant appearance and clean lines fool you - this roof rack is also sturdy and hard working so you can carry loads of gear. This means your vehicle will still look great inside and out.


Whispbar Through airflow diagram

The Whispbar features sleek, airfoil-style crossbars that are shaped like tapered wings. These lightweight aluminum bars have been shown to reduce drag by up to 70 percent when compared with round and square bars. They do this by putting the air back together quickly after it passes over and under the crossbars. This practically eliminates the buzzing and humming associated with standard roof racks - no fairing required. Because these bars produce less drag, the gas mileage of your vehicle will be far less affected than it is with other roof racks. And because they're constructed of corrosion-resistant, lightweight aluminum, you never have to worry about them rusting or affecting the load-carrying capacity of your roof.


Whispbar Through built-in channel with rubber strip

The built-in channels include soft rubber strips that can be pushed down into the channels when you mount accessories, so you don't have to cut or trim them as you would with other slotted crossbars. And this means you'll likely never have to buy replacement strips.


Whispbar Through SKS lock cores and channel safety tab

The crossbars include SKS lock cores that lock the rack to your vehicle, preventing theft of the system. To protect your channel-mounted accessories, there is a small tab that covers the end of the channel to prevent access. To get access to the crossbar channel, rotate the tab using the included tool. This tool is unique to the Whispbar system to ensure security.


Whispbar Through SmartFoot exploded

This premium rack includes innovative SmartFoot technology - a mounting system on the towers that lets you use the crossbars with any of the Whispbar fit kit styles. The custom fit kit (sold separately) ensures quick and easy installation on your vehicle, and the versatile SmartFoot allows you to use the crossbars on different yet similarly sized applications - just swap out the fit kit.


Whispbar Through crossbar adjustments

Once you've installed the fit kit, you must position the bars correctly on your roof. To center the bars, remove the covers from the legs, press the adjustment screws, and slide the legs in and out until each bar is centered on your roof. When the correct position is achieved, simply tighten the adjustment screws with the included hex keys.


Whispbar Through pivoting leg

The legs of the crossbars are constructed of glass-filled plastic that is strong, rigid, and UV and impact resistant. These legs pivot slightly to accommodate the curve of your roof and ensure that the bars are level.

Review from a similar Through Bar in Roof Rack


I installed the rack bars in about 45 minutes. The quality of the parts and fit is good to excellent. Very solid once everything is tightened down. There is a minimal amount of wind noise above 55 mph but nothing serious. 539787

Review from a similar Through Bar in Roof Rack


I set aside a whole afternoon to set up this roof rack and I'm not mechanically inclined. I ended up having the install done in about 30-45 minutes. And it looks great, it's solid, and the wind noise at highway speed is very minor. If you're playing music or talking you won't even hear it. Thanks, Etrailer! 303924
