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 channels 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 shock-absorbing, no-slip cushions 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).

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.

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

This is a quality product. From the web site to the rack parts to the assembly instructions, it was easy to assemble and the quality was impressive. I own 3 Thule racks, 2 Yakima and now this set of Rhino racks with Aero bars and I couldn't be more pleased. When my Mom gifted me her 2003 Toyota Corolla with only 42,000 miles on it, I decided to make it my daily driver. My Friday includes dawn patrol surfing, so I needed a way to carry surfboards and I wasn't sure I could get roof racks that worked. Joelo 383539

The product is great until you have to buy a new car and the Rack no longer fits unless you spend another 200$ just to replace the four connectors. It would be great if you had some sort of swap out with a small fee attatched to it. Now the Rack is just collecting dust in the corner of my apartment. Thanks for asking etrailer. 372525

Very fast delivery. Assembly and installation were relatively easy. Product seems to function well during initial use. I am disappointed by the description which states,"Plastic lock cores with universal keys deter theft of channel-mounted accessories Can be upgraded to all-metal locks (RRVA-LEC4 - sold separately) for added security." Only one of the two bars arrived with a locking core. The other did not have the stated locking device. etrailer.com's Nicole R. replied with a question about the model of the vehicle which doesn't seem to relate to the missing locking core. My disappointment remains. 177443


They seem to be functioning well. A good product for a reasonable price.Thanks.

Review from a similar Rhino Rack SX Series in Roof Rack

I spent a week reading reviews and forums to find the right one for my 2019 Jeep Cherokee that I just bought a few weeks ago. I just have to overthink everything but it paid off. I just received them this morning and installed them myself! First time for everything! It was really easy. The only part that was frustrating was the very first part... sliding the rubber pieces into the crossbars. They would not slide very well so I ended up using a bit of oil to make them slide better. Other than that, installation was easy and quick. I LOVE the looks of them. Very gorgeous!!! Thank you so much!! Very happy with the end result!! 671162

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack

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


Perfection in every sense of the word!

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack

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

After 1 year, I am still very pleased with the Rhino Bars that I purchased from you. They have now carried a Thule roof top carrier from Ontario Canada to Florida and back again (twice).

The Rhino Rack black aero crossbars looks look great on our 2014 Acura TSX. There were 2 components involved, the bars themselves and the mounting legs.

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack

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

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 Rhino Rack Vortex Aero in Roof Rack

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

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

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

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2014 Chevy Sonic Hatchback with Sunroof
  • Installing a roof rack on your 2014 Chevy Sonic Hatchback that features a powered sunroof is not an issue. The potential problem is only if you want to operate the sunroof with the crossbars mounted on the roof, as it's possible that it may interfere with the bars when being raised or with any accessories you have mounted like your kayaks. Generally speaking though, we don't recommend opening the sunroof with a roof rack installed anyway, as the crossbars (even the quieter aero-style units)

If you have this feature, you'd use a rack made up of the following parts: 44 Inch Vortex Aero Crossbars, part # RRVA118B-2 for black, # RRVA118S-2 for silver Roof Rack Legs, part # RRSX022 If you have a bare roof, you'd need: 54 Inch Vortex Aero Crossbars, part # RRVA137B-2 for black, # RRVA137S-2 for silver Roof Rack Legs,

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2008 Audi A6 with Integrated Locks
  • The Whispbar Fit Kit that you referenced does not feature an integrated lock core that allows you to secure the roof rack to your vehicle's roof. The particular model you mentioned is just the Fit Kit portion of a roof rack assembly and is designed to fit certain model years of the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra so it will not work on your 2008 Audi A6. For a really nice roof rack system that includes locks to help deter theft and is confirmed to fit your Audi I recommend the Rhino-Rack

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan With Factory Side Rails And Moon Roof
  • The Rhino-Rack Vortex Roof Rack you referenced is designed to fit the factory raised side rails on your 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan, but will not work if you have a sunroof installed. I recommend the Thule WingBar Evo Roof Rack System for your vehicle. Thule does have a note of caution that the roof rack may interfere with the sunroof opening, so you will want to make sure you keep it closed when the roof rack is in place. This roof rack features WingBar crossbars that are some of the

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2016 Subaru BRZ
  • The only roof rack options we have for your 2016 Subaru BRZ are ones that require riveting the fit kit to the roof of the vehicle like the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA118S-2, # RRRDM01, # RRRLKVA, and # DK290. This will provide you with aero shaped crossbars that will work well with your snowboard rack most likely.

  • Recommended Roof Rack And Kayak Carrier For 2016 Chevrolet Equinox With Naked Roof
  • Since your 2016 Equinox has a bare roof, a roof rack with the clamps that attach to the door jambs are the only roof racks we have available. The roof rack I recommend for your Equinox is the Rhino-Rack Vortex Roof Rack. This roof rack has 46-inch aerodynamic crossbars and does use clamps that attach to the door jambs. To order this rack you will need part # RRVA118S-2, part # RRRLKVA, and part # DK226. For carrying your kayaks I recommend the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier, part

  • Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Recommendations for a 2016 Nissan Rogue S
  • Some roof racks do come with feet others do not. The bars # RRVA118S-2 are just the bars, no feet or custom clamp kit. These are also not the recommended bars for your 2016 Nissan Rogue S. If your Rogue has a naked roof, no side rails that run front to back or crossbars that run side to side then you would need bars # RRVA126S-2, foot pack # RRRLKVA, and custom clamp kit # DK396 for a full roof rack. If your Rogue has the side rails that run front to back then you would use bars

  • Comparing Rhino Rack and Thule Roof Racks for 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
  • Rhino Rack is right on par with the quality of Thule. I would not say one is better made than the other at all. The advantage Thule has is more replacement part support than Rhino Rack, but that's not usually an issue with the roof racks. Ease of install is the same too so the Rhino Rack is the route I recommend the most. So for your 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack with raised rails I recommend the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA118S-2 and # RRSX022 and you'd be set with an easy

  • Can the Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Be Used on a 2009 Lexus IS 350 and a 2011 Lexus ES 350
  • You are correct, your 2009 Lexus IS 350 and your 2011 Lexus ES 350 will require different clamps and pads, but they can use the same Rhino-Rack crossbars and mounting feet. For your IS 350 you will need the Custom DK Clamps and Pads, # DK241, and for your ES 350 you will need the Custom DK Clamps and Pads, # DK234. These clamps and pads are specifically designed to fit each vehicle so they would not be interchangeable between two different models. For the crossbars, I recommend
