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).

This review is for the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Aluminum-Silver crossbars and associated legs and custom fit kit (RRVA137s-2, DK284, RRRLKVA) necessary for a naked roof installation on a 2018 Honda CR-V. Just enter the model and year of your vehicle and etrailers website will tell you exactly what additional items are necessary to complete the install. etrailers installation instructions and videos are very helpful. The installation document provided is for more than one vehicle and for more than one style rack, so take your time to understand witch measurements apply to your installation and refer to the installation video if necessary. ON that note: The measurements given for front rack did not fit as nicely on the roof as the rear rack, I adjusted the the front rack measurements slightly. I would suggest trial fitting on your vehicle before cutting the metric rulers to final length. Stick On tags are supplied to indicate front, rear and the location to install on your vehicle. Once the rails are adjusted and tagged you can remove and reinstall the racks very quickly. Korren was very helpful in keeping me informed as to availability of items in stock and email shipping tracking. I am very satisfied with etrailers customer service and happy with the appearance and functionality of the Rhino racks.

The roof rack is great. But the DK432 instruction doesn't fit my Ford Edge 2019 very well. The measurement strip length for front crossbar is about 160mm instead of 150mm, the measurement strip length for rear crossbar is about 150mm instead of 140mm.

First off, ordering and delivery couldn’t have been simpler. The flaps on one end of the box were open but luckily it was on the packing paper end of the box so nothing was lost. As for installation, I’m a computer guy and while I can get a job done with instructions, it normally takes me well longer than estimated. Not true with this rack... after an initial read through of the instructions it took less than 35 minutes to get it installed by myself. My ‘21 Toyota C-HR has drill outs for the feet to connect to so no measuring front/back was required which I believe saved a ton of time. Overall I couldn’t be happier... I head out to pick up m,y kayak next week for the maiden haul!

etrailer.com's videos and additional customer support made the purchase of a Rhino Rack system from them for our 2010 Malibu a no brainer. The rack fit the car perfectly, and with the videos and clear instructions that came with the kit, I got it installed on the car with only one misstep. The instructions came the the measurements in centimeters and inches. I didn't have a metric tape measure, and ended up messing up converting fractions to decimal. My Daughter is going to college 500 miles away and is moving into an unfurnished apartment and needed to pick up some small furniture that wouldn't fit in her Malibu. She purchased several items from Facebook Marketplace and was able to transport a twin bed and mattress, a medium sized desk and some dining room chairs (in several trips) with no problems. The only thing I can think of to improve the installation would be to have the Inches measurements in decimal or to include an inexpensive metric tape.

Still rock solid after a year. Very happy with the Rack. My daughter has used it from time to time over the past year when something wont fit in her car, and shes had no problems with it at all.

Good clear assembly and mounting instructions with helpful extras such as small stickers to identify mounting location for easy removal and re-installation of the racks. Trying Rhino-Rack since the other rack manufacturers didn't support my car anymore (always out of stock). The Aussies take their car trips very seriously (its a huge country with lots of places interesting to drive, but you've got to carry everything with you). The racks seem very solid. Time will tell (my other racks lasted 10 years).

Pretty solid and sturdy feeling roof rack. Stylish too. Instructions can take a while to understand due to the many pieces involved but the installation is straight forward with patience and understanding of what parts are what and where they go.

Excellent product, with excellent quality. It fit my 2017 Nissan Sentra perfectly. The construction of the product is made to last many years, while offering versatility and protection to my car. I bought the Roof Racks a year ago, to be able to transport construction materials, since I did not have a Truck. And it has been one of the best purchases or investments made. I really recommend it. Satisfaction is guaranteed.

I had a 99$ cheapo set of bars that had corroded and figured I would upgrade to these. These things are hot garbage. Every had a 4 year old that just learned to whistle, whistle in your ear for 6 hours? That's this. With my old cheapo bars + my thule XT rack iy didn't make a peep. Rhino-rack + thule XT and I've got a piccolo brigade on my roof. I'm truly disappointed in these bars.


Comments
It is a good idea to make sure the rubber stripping is fully seated into the bottom of the bar. Then make sure the end caps of the bars are fully ed. If you are still experiencing extreme wind noise after checking those components, I recommend to add a fairing that diverts the wind up and over the bars. The correct fairing for your roof rack is part # RRRF4
Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks - 50" Long
$99.22
. I know it is not ideal to purchase more parts but a lot of our customers have had successful results in reducing wind noise with a fairing.

Wonderful roof rack. Used it to haul bikes, camping gear, a windsurfer and more! I have it on a 2017 Honda Civic Hatch and the only problem was actually with the car! The door seal on the car had become not so flexible, so when I'd close the door, it wouldnt seal around the hooks that grip the frame. I'd get leaking every time it rained. SO! In conclusion, great roof rack, make sure your car door seals / weather stripping is up to the task.

The foot pads worked out at expected, for some reason I had trouble reading the instructions. I couldn't put my finger on it, but I just couldn't stay focused on what I was supposed to do. Maybe it's my old eyes or the size of the font, but once I downloaded the instructions on my computer and read it a few times, it was very very simple. The measurements for the footpads front/rear were perfect, though I did have to adjust the rear a bit to accommodate my cargo box but that's to be expected.

Ram 2500

I purchased Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars with Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs (RRRLKVA) and Fit Kit (DK284) for my 2020 Honda CR-V EX Hybrid. The rack was easy to assemble and took about an hour. The only tool not supplied that you need is a sharp knife or scissors to cut the rubber strips to length. Once assembled, the installation took about 30 minutes, making sure to measure accurately for placement. I used blue painter's tape to initially mark the locations. I then placed the white marking arrows (supplied) to align with the marks on the tape. I then removed the tape, placed the racks aligned with the arrows, and tightened the clamps. This product seems well made and engineered (I'm a retired mechanical engineer). Kudos to Rhino-Rack and to etrailer for selling it.

2018 Honda HR-V

Been wanting to get a roof rack for my small Honda H-RV suv for some time now. Finally decided to pull the trigger on one and opted for this Rhino rack system. Watching the etrailer install video and following the manufacturer's instruction, the front rack went on easily and perfectly. However, the rear track turned out to be a very long process. Why? Because I thought the manufacturer's measurements for the rear was an error. After the rack was assembled, it didn't seat into the roof channel at all. It appeared to be well short. So, I proceeded to use my mechanical ingenuity to get this rack to fit on my own. After a lengthy span of time and numerous adjustments, I'd come to realize that the manufacturer's measurements were correct. The footing did not sit perfectly until the unit was fully tightened against the vehicle. Live and learn.....once again. The rack is absolutely solid, and looks very clean and sharp on top of the H-RV. I could not detect any additional noise while driving, even at highway speed. The main purpose of this roof rack was for transporting my recreational kayak. I was not aware that these bars had a rubber strip running along the entire top of the bar. This turned out to be perfect for the kayak. Now, I didn't need to buy a specific kayak cradle. The kayak, one strapped down, is held absolutely secured to the rack. I am very happy with this product! Once again, etrailer comes through perfectly with another of my order. Prompt service and indepth product info are the reasons why I shop here!

Chevrolet Equinox

When we made our Chevy Equinox into our RV towed car we quickly found out we needed help from etrailer.com. From ebrakes and a baseplate to the tow bar and naked rook Rhino roof rack they were great to work with. I did all of the installation and most of it was easy. Some of it was harder so we relied on etrailer's great videos for things like installing the brake system and base plate. Everything is working great so kudos to etrailer!

Toyota FJ Cruiser

These slick looking, quality made, aluminum, aero bars came with the RLCP25 kit, to fit my FJ Cruiser. It didn't have the big, bulky, useless for carrying much of anything factory rack. I like the look of the full size racks/ baskets, but didn't want to spend $800 + truck freight to get one. These cross bars are perfect for carrying my 14' canoe, plus whatever else with various cargo carrying accessories. They are light, yet combined carry near 100+ lbs. of gear. There is a rubber strip in the top slot, bottom slots and plastic strips to seal those, once you slide the feet in the correct distance to be even on both sides for your vehicle, and black, plastic end caps to finish it off. You'll need a tape measure and 10mm socket wrench to attach to the feet, then re-tighten periodically for safety. They look great on mr ride, and I can deal with the rubbing/ humming sound, after putting them on, although it does sound like my tires rubbing the fender wells...


Comments
Im still loving the Rhino Rack setup, including the Nautic 581 saddles. They bars were easy to remove for winter snow clearing, and to put back on in the Spring for my new kayak. The rack and straps all work great, and I recommend etrailer to anyone that asks where I got it.

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!

This rack has been great! I have had no problems with it.
