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 round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars right out of the box.

A riser kit (S550 - sold separately) is available to accommodate your skis or snowboards with tall bindings. The risers mount to the spacer nuts on the bottom of your rack and attach to your crossbars with a special fit kit (WR09 - sold separately). These kits add 1-3/8 inches of additional clearance between the bottom of the carrier and your vehicle's roof. If you have Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty crossbars, you will need to use fit kit WR02 instead of WR09.

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.

Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard carrier, which also doubles as a fishing pole holder. Now this carrier is available in seven different sizes. It's going to start with a two ski model. It goes all the way up to the six ski model, which will also hold four boards.We've also put together a kit that will include the risers. If you have those taller bindings, that's going to be a great option. Now, for typical applications, your ski and snowboard carrier, or fishing pole holder, are designed to get those items outside of your vehicle, so you can get your luggage, family, pets, inside the car, and make it to your destination with all of your gear.This particular carrier is going to hold up to six sets of skis or four snowboards.

As far as fishing poles go, it's kind of hard to tell you exactly how many it will hold. That's going to depend on how large they are and how you put them in there.Now, to hold the ski and snowboards in place, you'll see we've got this thick, rubber gasket. When closed, it's going to compress down on to the skis. You see, that gives it really good holding power. Regardless of whether you've got something thinner, like what we've got here, even up to really large fishing poles, which we'll show you in just a minute, it's going to hold each one of those items, individually.See, here we've got a little bit of compression, and further in, where we've got the thicker set, it's a little bit more compressed.

It kind of customizes the fit to each set of skis or pole.Now, each half of the system is going to have a lock core that's pre installed. It's going to come with the rack. Unlike other systems out there in the market, you're not going to have to purchase those separately. They are keyed alike, so you can just use one key. It will come with two.

Once that's in the unlocked position, you can see the large button here. This is going to stick out past the end of the carrier. Even if you have on really thick gloves, you should just be able to use the palm of your hand to push in and release it.Then, you just kind of tip it up. It has a little bit of a spring effect to hold itself open, but it's not so tight of a spring that it's going to flip all the way over the other direction. At that point, you'll do the same thing on the rear.

Get your skis out, get your skis in. One thing important to remember, when loading skis, you want the flat part to be facing forward. You don't want the turned up portion. On a snowboard, of course, both ends are rounded, so you're not going to be left with that option.We'll bring this down, usually two hands. Bring it all the way down until it clicks. It's going to remind you, right here, on the end of the button, as well as in the video. We'll tell you, you want your locks to be engaged. You want to have your key in, and that turned to the locked position, as you're traveling down the highway, or at regular road speeds.If you're off the road, just going from, maybe, the clubhouse over to a lift, or something, then that's not really a necessity. Now, when in the locked position, it prevents our button from being pushed. That's going to help prevent our skis from being removed from our carrier.To help keep our carrier from being removed from the rack, itself, the two bolts that hold each foot in place are going to be temper resistant, with a special tool to remove them.Now, let's take a minute to see what our customers are saying about the product. Kenny R. said, "The system has been great. I use it regularly on our Escalade. With 4 boys, my wife and myself skiing now, we couldn't make it to the resort with our gear, without this system. Awesome product."Gray W. He said he's owned them for about a year, and has used them two to three times. "They have held up well, when fully loaded with skis. It can take some time to get them closed and locked, especially when it's cold," but "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." After a year, he said, "I still haven't switched to a cargo box so that must say something! They are a quality product and I don't have any issues other than them not having a quick disconnect."Now, when using it as a fishing pole holder, as we said, it's going to accept all different sizes and types. I've got my big surf rod, here. I brought in an ultra-light, just to test it and see what sizes of rod was required for it, to hold it, even my fly rod and then, my bait casting reel; and all of them are held in spot really, really well. You can see, even with the larger diameter rod, here, the other half it it is still very snug. Beyond that, my really thin ultra-light rod is held in place, no movement, no wiggle. They won't even, really, allow them to twist, as you can see. If we we're . Say, you have a really large reel. You can kind of pivot that a little bit. It really does a pretty good job of holding it in place.Now, if I we're going down the highway with this installed, my fishing poles, I would have them like this. I'd want them to be segmented into the shortest pieces they could. You'd want to have the lock cores locked. That's always important, whether it's skis or poles, to have these closed and locked properly.Once you've reached your destination, if you we're on the beach or at the area you wanted to fish, I think you could leave them extended. As long as you we're doing the ten, fifteen miles an hour, you really wouldn't have to worry about these moving around, or wiggling around too much.Another thing we like to do, is to compare this model ski and snowboard carrier to other ski and snowboard carriers that we offer. What we found, it does have additional features you don't find in some of the other racks, like the lock cores being installed. It's designed to work with all types of crossbars. Whether you've got the elliptical, the arrow, the square, or round, you're going to be able to use that. Not really an issue there.The size of the button isn't as large as what you see on some. It does stick out, so it should be pretty easy to get to, but compared to the types where the whole end would be the button, it's not as large.I think overall, with the reviews that we've got and the experience that we've got with the rack, you're going to enjoy it. You're going to like using it. It seems to be a good product and fair price.Now, to ensure that this is going to work out for you, size wise, we'll give you a couple of measurements. From the top of your crossbar to the center, here, we're looking at 3-5/8". Now, of course, since this carrier's going to be exposed to a lot of the winter type elements, it offers full aluminum construction; so we're not going to have to worry about corrosion, or anything like that, for years to come.It's also going to work really well on the T track. You can see here. This is just going to be with the clamp foot removed. The adapter's already there, so we won't have to worry about keeping that separate, or having to find it when we need it. Once that's slid in, we're just going to tighten up the screw, internally, here.Now, when you're using the clamp style foot, you're just going to have that tightened. You won't have to worry about it. This is going to be what secures our carrier down to the rack, itself, once we have that tightened. See It's nice and secure.That's going to complete our look at the Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier and Fishing Pole Holder.

Looks great! Exactly what I wanted. Fast shipping too 734074

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. 762300

Fit great, fast shipping, easy installa tion 332317

Does the job. I would have preferred if it used a lock and key to mount to my roof rack instead of just the security bolt, but for the price I think it's worth the trade off 587960

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. 333503

The roof rack was a great addition to my car! Installing it was a little tricky. The instructions were very vague in some steps but reading each section slowly and carefully got me through them. The rack seems very durable but haven't had it long enough to confirm reliance. 233565

- RR576

The ski rack works well. I once had a ski rack that had rubber caps that went over the locks on the rack to keep water from getting in the lock and freezing. I suggest that you take this as a suggestion to improve you locks. Unfortunately I changed cars and that old rack did not fit on my new car............so I bought the Rhino-Rack from you. Thanks, Chuck 325579

Easy Installation and removal for when not needed. Literally had these installed in under 10 minutes the first time out of the box and should be around 5 minutes next time now that they are set up and ready to go. 331650

Worked perfectly for our trip from Minneapolis to Vail and back. They held two snowboards, two ski's and poles. Super easy installation. I will recommend these to those that want to add a carrier system to their car. 479610

I ordered racks fir my car via another site and after being told they would fit, they did not and I returned them! The girl that helped me on the phone was awesome!!!!! My racks came as expected on the day they said they would arrive, and I love them!!! Great customer servicev 326529

- RR576

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. 720522

- RR576

Bought this for my boyfriend a year ago. He loves it. I was worried about getting him this as he drives high speeds on the highway everyday for work and leaves his snowboards on his car all winter long. He has never had any problems. 585267

- RR576

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. 725753

- RR576

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. 332176

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.

Greg S was awesome! I was on quite a few different manufacturer websites trying to figure out the best solution for my sons Jeep Grand Cherokee . He’s a snow boarder and we wanted to get him the complete roof rack solution. I came across the etrailer site and noticed they had sales and tech support . Greg answered the phone and helped me determine the best solution. He took the time to send me links for everything Called me back later that night to assist with my order placement . He even emailed me to let me know when it arrived and to follow up. Very pleased with the entire process. We will install after the holidays and I’m confident if I need any help they will be there for us! 585373

- RR576

I’d give it 5 stars, but one of the feet for the snowboard carriers loosened itself and fell off on the highway... that could have been user error, but in all honesty I’m very anal about having those tightened down. Other than that, these things are fantastic. 466153

- RR576

Product originally had a failure point and one of the bolts broke. I contacted etrailer and they put me in touch with the company. When I didn't get a response from the manufacturer etrailer sent me a brand new ski rack without having me return the broken one. No questions asked. The system has bee great. I use it regularly on our Escalade. With 4 boys, my wife, and myself skiing now, we couldn't make it to the resort with our gear without this system. Awesome product. 337818

- RR576

These are a great addition to the Rhino racks I just purchased. They attach easily with either the clamp mounts or the T track. I chose the clamp mounts because it gives me the additional clearance I needed to fit the skis with the binding facing downward when back to back, thus allowing more pairs to fit. There was very little assembly required 608225

- RR576

I absolutely love this product! It keeps my fishing poles safe and sound when I go fishing in the OBX. I like that it locks, this was a huge selling factor fo me. It is really easy to take off and mount back on if your not using it. This product also makes my sweet! 618064

- RR576

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. 321941

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.

This rack works well overall. We really like having this wide version so it holds 6 pairs of skis easily. Any issues after 1 year? - The latch is not particularly secure, you need to ensure it has clicked into place properly, otherwise it could mis-engage and release. Rhino Rack recommend you lock each of them every time, which would be a hassle. - Its difficult to lock the latches. So the recommendation above is of little value. Apart from those two issues, works fine. 334806

easy install, simple to use, great quality, saves space inside car! highly recommend! 767925
