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).

Video Transcript for Rhino Rack Roof Rack - Crossbars - RRVA126B-2 Review

Speaker: Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars. These are going to have the Matte Black finish. These are going to be sleek, low-profile, crossbars that's going to let you build an aftermarket roof rack for your vehicle, that way you can easily haul your roof-mounted accessories. Now, the bars are going to require Rhino Rack legs and a custom fit kit depending on your vehicle. Those items are sold separately. If you're in need of those, you can find them here at etrailer.com. The bars, they are going to be a slim, elliptical crossbar shape that's really going to help create an extremely aerodynamic system.

The full length bar is going to do a great job at extending past the roof rack legs which is going to help maximize the amount of space that you have for carriers and accessories. This bar design is going to feature a top channel that runs right in the center of the bar. That's going to let you add channel-mounted carriers and accessories. Then, you can still use these bars with clamp-on accessories, they just mount conveniently around the bars. The bar is designed to set most roof mounted accessories that are designed for aero and elliptical roof racks. That channel is going to have a rubberized Vortex strip in the top channel that's really going to help reduce drag and wind noise.

It's got a really nice wave design that's really going to cut through the wind and that's going to break up that noise that sometimes we get with a typical roof rack system. They're also going to assist in keeping dirt and grime out of the crossbars and they're going to provide cushioning and slip resistance for the cargo. To gain access to that channel, all you have to do is remove the end cap. Then, that rubber strip is actually broken into smaller pieces, that way you don't have to remove the entire strip. Just remove the section that you need so you can see there how they pull apart. You can trim these, you can cut them, you can put slits in them, whatever is going to work best for your particular application.

Then, they're really easy to get back in place, you can slide them around. I find it easiest to just go ahead and push them back down into the grooves until it's laying flushed with the actual bar. On the bottom of the bar, we're going to have bottom channels, that's these right here. These are going to allow easy installation to the Rhino Rack Roof legs. These are actually going to be rulers that are sitting in here. There's the channel, it does not go to the full length of the bar and then you're going to have these rulers.

It's going to be measured in millimeters which is going to collaborate with the instructions that would come with your fit kit. But these are designed to take up that space in there so that way we don't get a lot whistling or noise as we go down the road. The rulers in the channels are going to help center your crossbar in your roof and help ensure proper leg placement for your vehicle. When you install the leg kit, the rulers will need to be cut. Once the leg kit is installed in this bottom channel, you can place the remaining strips on either side to fill up that gap or to fill up the space which is going to further reduce wind noise during travel. The bars are going to include two end caps, one for each side. For each bar you get, you're going to get two end caps with that bar. The end caps are going to have plastic lock cores with universal keys to deter theft of your accessories. That's this little piece right here. As you can see right now, we can easily remove. If we want to move it to a locked position, we'd take the plastic universal key, move it to a locked position and that's going to keep it from coming out. If you want more security, what you can do is you can actually upgrade from the plastic lock cores to metal lock cores. Your metal lock cores are sold separately. You can find those right here at etrailer.com. But the bars are going to be made from a lightweight, structural grade, anodized aluminum construction that's going to be corrosion resistant as well as rust resistant. The bars are unique. They feature this nice internal H-shaped extrusion that's going to provide exceptional bar strength. When it comes to the weight capacity of the bars, we're looking at a 165 pounds when used as a two-bar system. You always want to be sure so refer to your vehicle's owner's manual to check the roof capacity of your particular vehicle. When it comes to the dimensions of the bar, take a look at the over-all width first, it's going to measure 3 1/8 of an inch, and then the over-all height is going to give us a measurement of 1 3/16 of an inch. When it comes to the length of the bars, those are going to vary. Here at etrailer.com, we offer different lengths of the Rhino Rack bars. They're going to be available in 41", 44", 49", 54", 59", 65" and 71" lengths. Rhino Rack really stands behind their products. They're actually going to put an aluminum lifetime warranty on their bars. That's going to do it for today's look at the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars with the Matte Black finish.

Bought this rack to carry canoe, etc. while towing our camper. Installation is easy with one person so long as you take your time to get the original setup meticulously correct. If you're planning to put it on only occasionally when you're using it, it's 10 to 15 minutes for one person to install once the original setup is done and the clamp points marked with the little unobtrusive stickers they send with the kit. Originally planned to put it on only when using because we only really need it a couple times a year (we just throw the canoe in the back for local trips). Looks good enough we might leave it on all the time. Even thought I didn't know I needed it until I was already at the store, it certainly came in handy bringing home a 10 foot long 2x8 on a rainy day when I needed to keep the bed cover closed. etrailer's service was prompt and flawless as always. 483657


After a year, still works perfectly. No problems with clamp slippage or anything else over time.

I've used roof rack systems from Thule and Yakima in the past and this system is far better than anything I've seen from either of those companies. The instructions are great (the kit came with detailed instructions that are specific to my vehicle), the parts all have a very high level of quality, and the whole system works really well together. I like that I can take the racks off my roof to have a clean look and then put them on only when I need them. Once I got the initial setup done (which was about an hour), it's a matter of less than 15 minutes to put them on or take them off again (I could probably do it faster if I was in a hurry). 407151

Good sturdy product. Installation instructions were a little confusing in some parts, but nothing too complicated that I couldn't figure out. Order came fast, impressed with the quality and price, and looks awesome on my truck. 569452

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 383644

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. 557571

2017 Chevrolet Spark

Rhino Rack 2500 series with Euro Bars for 2017 Chevrolet Spark - naked roof I purchased the Rhino Rack from etrailer and received it very quickly. The rack appears to be well made and very sturdy. It was the only roof rack I could find that would fit my Chevrolet Spark, it is probably not a car that people usually put roof racks on. I did run into a problem fitting them to my car. The instructions tell how long to cut plastic strips that fit into the bars and locate the towers at the right width on the bars to fit the roof. Having cut the strips and installed the towers I found that the towers were several inches too close together to fit the roof (the strips are actually marked in millimeters). I called Rhino Rack and the person there told me there was an error in the instructions and told me what lengths to use. He also agreed to mail me new strips. I then proceeded to locate the towers to the measurements that I was told to use, adding pieces of strip to achieve the new lengths, to check if that would fit. I found that to get the front rack to fit at the specified location, front to back, I had to shorten the strip on each side two millimeters and to get the back bar to fit at it's specified location I had to shorten the strips by six millimeters. With the towers now fitting I attached the clamps and found the rack to be solidly attached and should serve well for transporting my new kayak. I plan to replace the strips when I receive the new ones. One less star for the fitment issues. 553429

I ordered the entire set up, as well as carriers for our kayaks. At first, it seemed I had ordered the wrong parts, as the feet were rather wobbly. I sent a photo to customer service, and got a response from Julia almost immediately (and it was a Saturday!). She included a video with her email, and my question about proper installation was solved. The ordering process was simple, shipping was fast, and Rhino Rack has an excellent brand reputation. Installation was fairly straight forward. E- trailer made everything so simple from beginning to end, and I will be buying all of my accessories from them. 556306

Like how the product "fits" the roof line - it sits in the line between the roof seam and the door jam frame. We thought we followed the directions but did notice we had 2 of the foot pads backwards. It worked well with 2 "man" operation. Take your time and follow the directions. I like the small marker stickers to help if you take the racks off - which I will do during the winter time. I think a "second" wrench would be beneficial to allow for one person to be on each side to tighten down evenly. I will have more this coming week when we mount hem up and head out on our first journey. 515929

2015 Nissan Altima

I purchased this rack for our 2015 Nissan Altima. We ordered the system with the square "Euro" bars. Package arrived quickly and in good condition. Instructions were generally good and easy to follow although the information on where to set the supports on the "Euro" bars was incorrect. I looked at pictures of installed systems to see where the supports needed to be on the roof and then manually moved them in place. It took a little adjusting back and forth with trial and error, but it ended up working fine. Since then the rack works well and seems quite solid. We are pleased with the quality and value for the cost. 559047

I love the product. The only thing that I was unclear about at the time of purchase was that the additional adjustable bars weren’t included as a set. I have yet to purchase those and would like to get a quote on the best price possible for those. Thanks for all your help with this. 545782

Easy to assemble. You can tell they thought through this with exact measurements for my truck and for locks not sold seperately. Fits very snug to truck roof. Had 3 sets of Yakima in the past and prefer this over them. 562673

2013 Chevrolet Impala

I am very happy with my Rhino Vortex Aero roof rack and the cross bar load stops and fit kit. it installed fairly easily, but I did find the measurement not exactly to fit my car, but it was easily corrected. However, it did appear that the roof rack had been a return or something similar. it was not factory sealed and some of the rubber strips for the top of the rack and the measurement strips for the under side were missing. but that was easily handled, unfortunately I don't remember if this company took care of it or if I called Rhino Rack directly. I am now needing a kayak carrier possibly two to fit on my rack. 407676

by: Jesse09/17/2018

I was very please with the quality and strength of this roof rack. It took me about 90 minutes to install and took it for test run with my kayak going 70 mph and no issues. 565917

A little more complicated to install than I thought, but a careful reading of the instructions and a little patience got the job done. I like the result. It looks good. 546777

by: Noelle D06/21/2016

These were a little confusing to figure out. It took me awhile to realize there was a bold that needed to be removed before I began assembling things. Once I figured this out it was smooth sailing. 263210

by: Ian R.03/22/2017

I used this rack to mount two 65lbs kayaks to my vehicle and travel. One of many trips was over a thousand miles (round trip) and they moved maybe half a centimeter a piece during. I was extremely pleased with how easily I could adjust them. The original shipment had everything that was supposed to be in it and the directions were realitively clear. I had them together and on in roughly an hour. When they are off the roof the only issue I have arises. The rubber feet that sit directly on the roof tend to fall off easily. Not a big deal. 357136

Easy to read instructions, easy to install. Watched the install video a few times just to be sure! They do whistle a bit at highway speeds, but certainly not unbearable. In fact, I was surprised as to how quiet they are. It's to be expected, especially when paired with kayak j-racks. So happy with this purchase and I would definitely recommend them! 559818

by: Scott Sleckman08/23/2017

Delivery was a little slower then I would have liked, but otherwise it was perfect. Great customer service when I called to ask about them. Make sure you read the instructions when you install (I didn't and wasted an hour fooling around with the wrong parts) other then that, the install was smooth as silk. 424344

Had a little trouble installing the rack but i finally got it and placed it on my car. Looks great and more importantly i can comfortably transport my fishing rods lol.

I installed the rack on a 2018 F150 SuperCab. These racks are really nice medium load racks, well built and easy to install. If I followed the instructions the pads on the front cross bar would not sit down in the drip channels. I narrowed the front leg locations by 5mm per side or a total of 10mm or approximately .4". I sent the pics to Rhino Racks Engineering Department but have not heard back to see if they liked my fix. I like it! I recommend getting Rhino Racks approval before making these mods but that's what it took for mine to fit. 564568

I love my Rhino Vortex roof racks. They look great, are sturdy, and there is no wind noise up to 70 mph (haven't been on the freeway yet). eTrailer was great and made the proper component selection easy. Now, the -1 star... The instructions provided by Rhino were horrible or non-existent. The cross bar literally had no instructions and I couldn't even find them for my model online. Between being a handy guy and watching other Rhino videos on YouTube, I figure it out. Maybe most people have professional installers put them on. 375802


Love the Rhino rack! Sometimes I think I could stand the truck Grand Cherokee upside down on it! It was a little tricky to install, but once I found YouTube vids I was good to go.

Couldn’t be happier with my purchase. Though the items I ordered were on back order, an Etrailer rep contacted me within 48 hours to advise me of the delay and offered a full refund if I chose not to wait for them. I was not pressed for time, so I opted to wait until the order could be filled. The delivery came ahead of the projected delivery date to my surprise. The items were packaged very well and the specific directions that came with them made it a breeze to install on my wife’s car. A+ customer service and A+ products. I will be a return shopper and highly recommend Etrailer to my family and friends. Now my wife can easily load and unload her kayak vs when we had to haul them on our Yukon. 514100

Very Fast Shipping. Packaging was a bit overkill (a million metal staples), but package arrived 100% in tact Instructions were easy to read. After setting up cross bars in my house, I installed this rack on my 2017 Honda Civic Sport in about 20 minutes. Overall, not much wind noise added, feels pretty sturdy, and aesthetically nice. I will definitely recommend this product. 477954

Install was made dificult due to the fact i ordered for the fixed mounting points and the instructions were for the clamp on style. Dispite that i am so far happy with the look and feel of these racks. Have not needed them yet but do plan on using the for travel and when we kayak. 540054

Service from ETrailer was excellent. Personal and very helpful service (kudos to Michele S.) . Prompt shipping and items exactly as described. The installation videos on their website were helpful but I still needed to follow the written instructions. Without hurrying it took me about an hour and a half to assemble and install the rack on my Tundra. It fit very well and feels very secure. Still need to take it out onto the road. If anything bad shows up I'll post an updated review but I really don't expect any problems. I've used racks like these before (not from Rhino) and this looks like a pretty solid piece of equipment. 419026

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

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. 547818

The racks fit perfectly! They are a great fit to my car. They don’t interfere with the sunroof’s operation. I assembled it on my own with no difficulty. It was easy to assemble. The directions it provides to you are easy to follow. The only down side was getting the plastic pieces to lock on the ends of the bars. Other than that they are great and they look great on my car! I plan to use them to transport kayaks! They are very sturdy and very trust worthy for transporting a couple of kayaks. I recommend these racks to anyone who has a 2016 or 2017 Nissan Altima! 487587

Everything came super quick! Ordered Thursday before a weekend vacation, had it when I got home Tuesday! Outstanding customer service. Only gripe is the packaging was a little squished and there were a few scratches on the bars. No worries though, it's gonna have way more from the kayak on top. Kit installed in about an hour. Barely any wind noise I can notice in the cab. Additionally the rod holders are MINT! Great service and product. 500276

These crossbars were easy to install, are sturdy when installed and look great on my factory side rails when installed with the SX Series legs. The standard end caps are an all-plastic affair and use a little key to engage a cam lock. That plus the distance from the end of the crossbar to the nut that tightens the foot onto the rail keeps things relatively secure. Most people probably want to opt for proper locking end caps, though. The rubber vortex strips look nice and give items something grippy to rest on. I haven't tried a load test yet but did drive around in moderate wind on the highway in multiple directions. Other than a slight whistle at 70 mph, you'd never know they were there. Overall, real happy with the product and looking forward to hauling some stuff around with them. 248807

I ordered the complete Rhino-Rack with legs for my 2009 Subaru Forester. I watch a couple of videos prior to installation. Followed instructions and installation was completed without any issues. Product was delivered promptly and Natalie helped me with my order and she followed up to inform me of the status of my order. Thanks for the help and thanks for a product. 475990

Install was made dificult due to the fact i ordered for the fixed mounting points and the instructions were for the clamp on style. Dispite that i am so far happy with the look and feel of these racks. Have not needed them yet but do plan on using the for travel and when we kayak. 540348

The product was well packaged and well buffered. The package came a day earlier than the scheduled arrival period. I used the instructions on the website and it took me only 15 Minutes to assemble it and another 20 to set it in my car. Im in love with how it looks on my Civic 2015 and would Highly recommend it to others. The company had a wonderful follow up, from the time I bought the product to its arrival and even after its arrival. Thumbs up to this wonderful team. Here are some pictures of the product on my Civic. 524020

Received the roof rack on the date promised, it was well packaged and all parts required were included. Everything fit together very well and the instructions were easy to follow. The rack looks good on the car. Once the rack is installed and the included decals in place it only takes a few minutes to remove it and reinstall. This is important for me because we will only use the racks to transport our kayaks the rest of the time they will be removed and stored. There are two small items that can be improved. First the legs are different lengths yet nowhere in the instructions does it tell you where each size goes. Second I own 10 tape measure and not one of them is in meters and I do not care how good your eyesight is you are not going to be able to measure to 53/64". If the measurements are critical you should ensure customers in the US have measurements they can use or include a MM tape measure. Overall this is a very good product that I would purchase again and recommend to friends. 323686


The product work GREAT. We went on a 3,000 mile trip to FL last winter and transported two Kayaks on the roof racks. They held up fine just required tightening of hard wear every so often. I would purchase this roof rack again.

Ordered the vortex roof rack and road warrior bike carrier, they delivered it sooner than than expected which was great. Easy to install but they only concern I had was the spec measurements need to be adjust to fit my car because following their specs left my hatch back hitting the carrier when up and even after the adjustment it still hits the rear tire of the bike but all in all I am very satisfied and am going to buy more products (wheel mount, weather tech wind deflectors). So happy saved tons than buying from bike shop or another online retailer. 483016

The instructions were clear and the rack installed perfectly. I am impressed with the custom foot mouldings that match my car's contours exactly, and the rack is still as tight as when I installed it 4 weeks ago. I have been using it frequently to pick up 8' lumber for a large shelving project I have underway, and I hope to soon use it to carry my kayaks. The rubber strips on the top hold the lumber so securely I have no worry of having the load slip off the car. The two negatives I have are: (1) the crossbar end-caps consist of 2 locking and 2 slip-ons. I have come out to my car to see 1 of the slip-ons half slipped-off and I expect I will lose one or both of them in short order; and (2) the instructions should put the forward bar at least 1 inch further forward. As you will see in the photo, Rhino's guidelines result in the front bar being higher than the back bar, which results in additional wind pressure on the goods being carried. Finally, I would like to thank etrailer for shipping the product exactly as promised and also for packaging the entire order in an additional box as I requested. I found your service to be outstanding! You are welcome to post my comments and or photo if you should wish to. 250786

Great sturdy rack. I put it together myself and have already started using it. I was concerned that it would cause leaks in the door the way it has to mount..but its Florida and its rainfall in the past few days and no leak! The weak link would be the end caps..two do not lock on and im concerned the will fly off at some point. 146312


Its still attached to my car and still doing its job. I did lose an end cap and had to order 2 as a pair . I dont remember the amount but the were expensive as replacementsespecially since i knew it would happen

The rack was shipped within a day of order and delivered on the expected date. I got email updates with the order confirmation and shipping information. Etrailers provided excellent customer service. The web site allowed me to select the product with confidence that I was getting the right rack for my 2015 Subaru Legacy. Assembly and installation were easy using the provided instructions. It probably took about 45-60 minutes to complete. I especially liked the measuring strips that Rhino provides. It makes setting the foot width on the bars painless. I have not used the rack yet, but it's a solid mount and I do not expect any difficulties. It also looks good on the car. I purposely left the cover plates off in the pictures so the clamp mechanism was visible. 542354

Rhino’s directions were so-so, but e-trailer has great installation videos. Took me about 30 minutes to install, once I figured out the difference between centimeters and millimeters. The rack system came quickly and in great condition. 486958
