Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier

Whether you are hauling 6 pairs of skis, 4 snowboards, or a family-size load of fishing poles, this carrier ensures that you will arrive at your destination with all your gear intact - and you'll do it without breaking the bank.

Locking Carriers

The Rhino-Rack ski and fishing rod carrier comes with a lock on each unit, offering you peace of mind when you are hanging at the lodge after a long day on the slopes or out on the lake in your boat.

Large Push Button

The carrier operates with a large push button on the side of the unit. This design allows for easy loading and unloading of skis, a snowboard, or fishing rods, even if you're wearing fingerless mittens or big, bulky winter gloves.

Universal Mounting Hardware

The ski and fishing rod carrier mounts in the top channel of your Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero or Heavy-Duty crossbars with T-bolts or channel nuts. It also comes with universal clamp-on mounting hardware that lets you use the carrier on square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars right out of the box.

Soft Molding

This carrier protects your gear with soft rubber molding inside the hinged arms of the carrier. The molding gently cradles your skis, snowboard, or fishing rods and won't damage paint or cause abrasions.

This rack works great with the four pairs of skis I lugged from Oregon to Alaska. I'm using it on the beef rack cross bars that came with my go fast camper which are very difficult to find mountings for. This one worked great though with a little bit of metal grinding on the bolts that slide into the t-slot of the rack. It locks and unlocks fairly easily (with a little bit of jangling involved), but so far so good!


The rack system works well and I like it. I like the “low-profile look” as well. However, the spacing was to wide. I had to re rivet one side of each bar in order for it to fit the rack of my AWD Toyota Matrix. I have since purchased a Thule cargo box that works and looks awesome. I just hope I don’t overload my little matrix!!


The Rhino Rack is temperamental. It doesn't open or close as easily as our old Thule rack. At times we struggled to get it open (locks froze). After that incident,it was difficult to get it to snap closed and lock. For the first time, we took the racks off the car once ski season was over because we were afraid more exposure to the elements would make it worse.

I reached out to Rhino Rack who advised that it can become difficult to lock as the rubber piece slides forward. They recommend making sure that it is not in the way when using the lock.

Good locks, secure and tight. I easily fit two snowboards with two pairs of skis. Seems like it would fit on many rack/bar systems. I use them on the rhino aero vortex bars. They are pretty noisy on my f150 trucks roof. I’ve tried moving them around to many different positions, there always seems to be a worse vibrating wind noise around 45-55 mph which is even worse when the boards/skis are off the truck.
I would not recommend this setup for anyone with a pickup truck.


Bought a Euro Roof rack and Rhino ski rack in October.
I ordered both items incorrectly....
I ordered the wrong fit kit (4 door instead of 5 door)....then I ordered to small of a ski rack. Didn’t start installed them until two months after receiving them so the return option was out of the question.
Etrailer worked with me and got me the correct parts and helped me send back to wrong ones.
They were all so helpful and informative. Kept me updated on the shipments and payment processes. The euro rack and rhino ski rack work amazing. We have a set of skis and one snowboard. Fits perfect. We have extra room for friends that ride up with us.
Easily installed.
Went 80mph and could barely hear them.
Would recommend this company to everyone.


I'm completely satisfied with my purchase from etrailer. First, the company provides terrific support, from installation instructions to responding quickly to questions. Second, the carriers are great. They are easy to install and remove. I am confident they are securely installed and my skis are safe. I wasn't worried about them as I drove down I-80 in Wyoming at 80mph. Having the skis on the roof made it possible for me, my wife, our infant son in his car seat, our dog, our cat in his carrier, and our luggage to fit in our car so we could enjoy a week-long ski trip in Utah. The only reason I held back from giving a 5-star review is the noise. I might be able to reduce it by moving around the rail inserts or adding an air dam. I'll report back if either of those work. Until then, I'll happily and confidently keep using the carriers.

I wouldnt give the racks as high of marks as I did a year ago. The plastic covers for the brackets have become extremely difficult to get back on. The last two times I used the bars, I just left them off. Thankfully no one has stolen the racks, but not having them on makes me nervous.

Did a Google search for ski racks and happened upon this one. Shipping was super fast. Rack was easy to figure out and get mounted on factory crossbars. Locked 1 set of skis in and took it out for trial run. Got speed up to normal interstate speed (65-70 mph). No noticeable change in noise or handling.

I do plan to obtain another Allen wrench with security hole in it in case I happen to misplace the one which came with it.


Shipping was quick! Usually, since quarantine, factory shipments have been getting delayed but not this one. The carrier came already constructed, so all I had to do was lock it into place on the roof rack system. Overall, very satisfied with my purchase!


Price is good and competitive! EZ installation and looks great on roof rack of Cherokee! Only one complaint, creates wind noise while driving and certain all similar carriers do the same.


Great snowboard rack! Had it out twice already, both times in snow, and it worked beautifully. Easy to operate in the snow, and held 2 boards nicely. I have only one minor complaint: I swap out racks regularly (snowboards and bikes), snd there is no quick release up and down with this rack. It’s not a hard install, just not like my Yakima racks with quick release buckles. Still highly recommend!


I have a 2016 Ford Edge that had a naked roof. No roof rack of any kind. I purchased this Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar complete kit(RRVA137B-2, RRRLKVA and DK432) and the Rhino Ski and Snowboard carrier RR576. Once you got all of the pieces laid out and read the easy to follow instructions. We also watched a video on you tube. I say it took my brother and I about 2 hours. We were being extra careful and made sure we were understanding each part of the instructions. Especially when it came to the measuring and cutting of the vortex strips. You don't want to mess up on that. I am very happy with the quality and the ease of the installation. You do feel a little wind resistance when driving. I have been driving around town to get a feel of the car. We are leaving on our snowboarding trip tomorrow. I will try to add an update when I have fully used the product.


Sporting the new rhino “rod” holder along with the hitch to mount my existing carrier too!
The prices were excellent


This rack works fine and as I expected. The method of attachment gets the job done but is not super beefy. This is a good value.


I like the size and ease of mounting the rack, however since unboxing i have had trouble locking one bracket. Almost every snowboard trip it takes an extra 10 minutes getting it just right to lock


Yet another great product from Rhino Rack and delivered fast by trailer.

by: provided one of the best online buying experiences I have had. The site offered a product that fit our needs with high quality at a very competitive price. The online transaction was flawless, and the product arrived when expected with no damage. The product itself is very sturdy, exceeding my expectations, and installed easily. Very happy customer.


Quick easy installation on the factory cross bars.(2019 Subaru Outback) High quality materials and construction. Includes tamper resistant fasteners. Holds skis in place even with my wifes excessive speeding.


I've had this rack for about a year now and it's held up great. I go skiing almost every weekend during the winter so I put it through plenty of wear and tear with snow storms, rain, ice, and general i70 dirt. Fits five pairs of skis and is easy to use. The only thing that has come up is when it is fully packed up with five pairs of skis, it's pretty difficult to close and turn the key to lock. It's not a common issue since we're normally only transporting 2-4 pairs, but just something to note.


This rack works well and looks sharp. It had a good price point as well. I would definitely recommend this rack. As far as the website ( they processed the order and shipped it fast without issue. Would definitely recommend them as well.


Awesome product! Fits like a glove on my 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited X. There is a slight whistling noise, but otherwise couldn’t be happier with the overall package!


Owned these a year now but have only used them 2-3 times. They have held up well, when fully loaded with skis it can take some time to get them closed and locked, especially when cold. Overall they are a good product, I will be switching to a cargo box that is long enough for skis as they can be used all year round and are multi purpose.

1 Year update - Still havent switched to a cargo box so that must say something! They are a quality product and I dont have any issues other than them not have a quick disconnect.

etrailer was great to work with and these work great to transport my fishing poles


Great price! Fast delivery!


After a year of use on our Audi A4, into our second ski season, the Rhino Rack and attachment for skis have been great. Very easy to setup, install and remove. Solidly built. More affordable than some other high end brands, but equal in quality. The attachment for skis can be easily used on other rack systems; they are basically universal. We used them recently on a large SUV with built in racks. eTrailer delivered quickly and on time. I will use them again.


Only used one time so far, was easy to install. Extremely happy with estraier. Interface was great as was the shipping, they saved me perhaps $200. Thanks, will look to etrailer for future needs.
