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 Roof Rack Review - 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today on our 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe we'll be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Rhino Rack Roof Rack System. This is going to consist of the Rhino Rack Vortex Arrow Cross Bars, part number RRVA137B-2, the Rhino Rack 2500 Series Legs, part number RRRLKVA, and the Custom Fit Kit for our Santa Fe, part number DK360. Now, keep in mind our cross bars are also available in silver, part number RRVA137S-2. The Rhino Rack Roof Rack System is going to be a great solution for carrying your vehicle accessories on your roof, whether those are bike racks, cargo baskets, ski and snowboard carriers, or kayak carriers. The aerodynamic shape of our bar as well as the weather strip on the inside is going to help to reduce wind noise and drag. We can also remove that weather strip, cut it down, and place in channel mounted accessories. The end cap has a plastic lock core which can be replaced with an all metal lock core to help prevent theft and tampering of your channel mounted accessories. The locking cover on our foot pack is going to prevent any theft or tampering of our roof rack system as a whole.

Under there you'll see our fit kit. This is going to be custom cut to our vehicle, and any portion that touches our vehicle is going to have a rubber coating to prevent any scratches or abrasions. This being a custom cut fit kit, it's going to give us a nice, secure fit on our Santa Fe. The Rhino Rack Roof Rack System has a 165 pound weight capacity and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. It's going to be quick and easy to install. We'll show you how to do that now.

We're going to have two cross bars. We'll get four foot packs. We already have one of our back ones installed. We're going to get four pads and four clamps for our fit kit, four end caps for our cross bar as well as the key to tie that down. We're going to have keys for our end caps for our foot pack, and that's going to secure that down.

Then we have our included tool to tighten everything down and make sure we have a nice, secure fit. To begin, we're going to take our foot pack and remove our bolts here in the center. We'll place our clamp over the top and we'll start to tighten that down. We're going to tighten that bolt down just enough so that our clamp is held into place. Then we can flip our foot pack over, take the plastic piece off. Make sure that the arrow on the rubber and on the plastic are facing the same way.

We want them pointing towards our clamp when we place them back onto our foot pack. Now we're ready to slide it onto our cross bar, sliding it into the channel. We'll measure out this inside strip here to 13.7 centimeters. Then we can tighten down the bolt here in the center using our included tensioner. Now, with our kit you will get inserts that actually have the measurements on there. You can cut these down and place them into the channel. This is going to help to prevent any wind noise or drag, or any dirt and debris buildup underneath our cross bar. You can also use the excess and place it on the outside. Now, before we load this up we'll take our end caps for our cross bar and lock them into place. We're ready to load this up onto our vehicle. We'll now take our cross bar and gently set it across the roof of our vehicle, making sure that it sits around our door jam. The cross bar spread's going to be from the center of the front clamp to the center of the back, and that's going to be 70 centimeters. Once we have everything measured out we can come to our clamp, and we're ready to tighten it down. I like to hold my clamp just up against the door jam and tighten down my bolt until it holds that in place. Then we'll go back and forth tightening it down evenly until it's completely secure. Now, we'll know when our roof rack is completely tight when the skinnier portion of our torque tool is straight, just like so. Now we can close up our doors. Lastly, we'll take our end cap, place it onto our foot pack, lock that into place. Now we're ready to load up our accessories and hit the road. That's going to be our completed look at the Rhino Rack Roof Rack System on our 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Just bought these for my 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport And they look great! I don’t know why someone would pay double the price for the Thules when these look exactly the same. Great product! 480516

2014 Kia Soul

I bought the Rhino-Rack for my 2014 KIA Soul "with a sun roof" and my wife and I installed it in about a half hour. it was soo easy and fits like it was manufactured just for my car. Everything I saw said that it was not for cars for the sun roofs but i measured and checked several friends before I ordered and bought and there looks to be no problems. It fits very well and the clearance is very sufficient. I can now carry my wood or kayaks or larger stuff around. 327874

By far the best price/ value in a quality rack for the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, and etrailer has the best price on the internet. Have a look at the Thule, but I can't imagine that anyone with common sense would choose the Thule over the Rhino rack system. The Thule has far less carrying capacity and costs a lot more. The Rhino Rack has the highest load carrying capacity among it's competition and is designed to work specifically with the mounting system that is factory stock- i.e., the factory rails on the roof have a 3 position mounting hole system that locates the Rhino rack and also greatly adds to the strength and stability. I would add that when assembling and mounting them, pay very close attention to two things: 1. As shown in step #1 in the printed instructions, there is a cam that has to be inserted *inside* the cross bar, not under it. It takes some effort and attention to position it properly and ensure that the the cam does go up inside the bar when the foot is slid onto the bar, but you have to, the legs will not clamp to the cross bar if it is not. 2. As shown in step #3, the small pin on the metal plate of the leg has to go firmly and completely into one of the 3 holes on the factory roof rail. When I first did it, it was in a little, but not seated firmly, so the rack was not attached securely to the car, even though it was tightened down all the way. Glad that I looked closely and re-did it correctly. You have to wiggle the plate and pin until you feel it pop into that hole, then hold it there with one hand as you tighten down the lever to secure it with the other. When correctly fastened, the Rhino Rack has no play or looseness- it is attached very firmly. Also, I have the panoramic sun roof on my Santa Fe, I can confirm that you can open and close the sunroof without any problems with the rack mounted- there is plenty of clearance. That may change depending on which accessory you attach to the rack. This is a 2015 Santa Fe Sport. I am doing a renovation on a house I bought recently so I haul a lot of lumber etc from the hardware store. I was concerned when I replaced my Cherokee with the Santa Fe, that I would not be able to carry lumber and sheet goods, but with the Rhino Rack, I can carry everything that I need on top, securely. Seems easy to get on and off, once you installed it the first time and established the position of the legs on the bars. I'll put it on when needed to carry something, then keep it safe and out of the hot sun in the garage when not in use. Probably a good idea to take a label maker and add small tags on each bar in a hidden place to indicate which bar goes front and rear- also left and right for each, so you can re-install with minimal confusion. 182742

John, great review. I need the rack to carry my 9-6 longboard. Since my Hyundai as flush side rails. Im a little worried about uplift caused by wind getting under my board. I dont really want o see my long board sailing down the highway. Do you think the mounting brackets are sufficiently strong enough to transport my board?

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... 84838

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.

Thanks for your review Jason. Ive been searching for an option to transport kayaks on my naked FJ and your review sealed the deal. Now Im off to buy kayaks. :-

2013 Ford Explorer

Installed on a 2013 Explorer. Went on perfectly with the SXB legs. Bars extend past the legs 3" for a very nice appearance. Silver bars/black feet on a silver Explorer is perfect. Will likely use the bars to mount a cargo carrier on (16-18 CF) but haven't done it yet. Just the most faint/slight whistle at 65 MPH. Can only be heard with no radio on. Absolutely no issue. Solid as a rock. 286955

I love the racks, instructions were understandable, one of my end caps came in bad, it can wiggle off after locking but I emailed etrailer and they arranged a replacement quick with rhino rack, pretty nice of them, comes with rhino rack decal and just have to decide where to put it, out my bike up and took it for a test drive and it was very nice, I love their package because it comes with locks and way cheaper than the competitors, very satisfied 758729

I bought these racks for my 2014 Jeep Cherokee, and am incredibly pleased with everything! They were easy to assemble and get on the car, coming with fairly straightforward directions. We had them on in about an hour and a half. And the Aero design is great! No whistling or drag, and made it a lot easier to get my SUP around? Would absolutely recommend! 674221

Great item, pretty easy to install. No issues with whistling during a 500 mile highway trip with two boats. Ironically, the only noise was from the Yakima Jaylow, when it was folded down with no boat attached. I posted a longer review for the full setup on our 2019 Highlander with 2 biggish kayaks under reviews for the rack pillars, Item: RRRCL4. When fully tied down, we used hood loops front and rear for both boats. Great service from Carol C. 669380

Fits perfectly. Installation requires focus. Getting that Aero crossbar mounted just right was a little bit tricky because of the metal cam engaging the slot. Once I wrapped my brain around how that was supposed to work, they went on super solid. If you don't get the metal cam in place - it will make it nearly impossible to get this mounted correctly to the flush mounted rail. Read the Q&A - its covered extremely well in there. I do like the lock and key but they are not the best quality. I think if someone wants to take it they could do so with little effort. So far, I'm quite happy overall. 668226

I was unable to successfully attach these mounts with the Rhino Rack Aero Crossbars to a 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe with factory side rails. After four hours of trying with help from another person, we could not get them to attach and stay tight. I looked for help on the website but the relevant example was not there and I gave up and returned them. It appears that all these products come with pictographs for instructions. Universal but not always that easy to decipher in real time and place. The quality of construction was just fine and the price very competitive but that wasn't enough. 610243

Fit is good, sturdy rack, video instructions are great and easy to put on. Locks are not that great but will work for me. If someone really wanted to get to the bolt they could easily break the lock covers but then they would have to have the correct wrench. I would still recommend this as a great after market rack. 588056
