The low-profile, aerodynamic Rhino-Rack ROC25 roof rack lets you carry gear and accessories on your vehicle's roof quietly and with little wind drag. It's designed for installation on a naked roof (a roof without factory raised side rails, flush rails, fixed mounting points, tracks, or rain gutters). The rack's Vortex Aero crossbar has built-in rubber strips that disrupt airflow for a quiet ride, and the bar is constructed of aluminum so it won't rust. This bar blends seamlessly with the support legs to provide a from-the-factory look, and it is custom cut to your specific vehicle so it requires no adjustment during installation. The legs also include built-in locks that protect your gear and the rack from theft.


Aerodynamic Design

The rubberized Vortex strips in the top channel of the 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 crossbar cuts through the air with minimal drag - even at highway speeds.


The ROC25 roof rack has a flush-mount design so the crossbar terminates at the legs with no overhang. This provides the rack with a seamless, from-the-factory look, and it also helps to improve aerodynamics by reducing drag and wind noise.


Strong, Durable Construction

Rhino-Rack Vortex H-shaped extrusion

The Vortex Aero crossbar is made of structural-grade anodized aluminum with an H-shaped internal extrusion. This extrusion strengthens the bar without adding a significant amount of weight. And the aluminum bar won't rust so you can leave it on your roof year-round.


The rack's durable, glass-reinforced nylon legs are designed to stand up to cargo loads and weather extremes. They're also UV treated to withstand long-term exposure to sunlight.


Custom Fit for Easy Installation

The roof rack arrives at your doorstep almost completely assembled. The crossbar is already mounted into the nylon legs. And the bar is pre-cut to match the width of your vehicle's roof, so you won't need to waste any time centering it. The few remaining assembly steps are straightforward and require only the vehicle-specific fit kit.


The vehicle-specific fit kit includes pads and clamps specifically designed to fit the contours of your roof. To install, simply attach the pivoting plates and rubberized pads to the bottom of each leg. Then secure the legs to your vehicle with the metal clamps. Decals inside the legs and a diagram in the instructions help you to orient the crossbar on your roof.


Once the crossbar is properly positioned, use the included Allen key to tighten it in place. The Allen key is designed to serve as a simple torque wrench. The curve in the blue plastic handle straightens when you've applied enough torque to each bolt.


Channel-Mounted and Clamp-On Accessories

The 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 channel 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 bar, and the Vortex strips provide a shock-absorbing, no-slip cushion for any accessories that rest on it.


Built-In Security

Locking covers on each support leg let you secure accessories mounted in the crossbar top channel. These sturdy nylon covers give the rack a finished look and also help secure the rack to your roof. The cover locks are keyed alike, so a single key opens all locks.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


My inital thought of these crossbars were that they were going to be too small. Two of the other big makers call for 53" min and 60" recommended. However after installing, 49" is a perfect fit for the Cayenne I feel. The rack is extremely quiet (make sure you use the channel rubber on top and bottom) The Cayenne is fairly quiet car inside and it was one of my big concerns but I only hear what sounds like a slight rush of air, no buzzing or whistling at all. The downside to this rack is I think the black paint is too thin. Just laying it on the pavement while setting up caused scratches to appear. Silver would be the way to go if your getting these, or spray them plastic. 877238

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Bought this kit for my 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because the install instructions weren't clear. To be fair, I should have measured the fixed points on my car on my own rather than relying on the provided spreadsheets. It only took me between 5-10 minutes to make the neccessary adjustments as I was mounting the crossbars and was a pretty easy fix to make. Just frustrating in the heat. Also, when tightening the mounts to my car, I wasn't aware a wrench would be needed and didn't have any available. Had to buy a set, and none of them fit properly (bought in inches, should have gone metric I suppose?) Other than that, great product. Bought a kayak mount to put on and held it well for a 500+ mile trip. 9/10 would reccomend. 855769

The Rhino Rack is a well designed product and very well made - The fit for my car worked well and it took about 45 minutes to assemble, adjust and install. It will work well for transporting bikes and surfboards. The assembly kit included a long shaft hex wrench and handle which made assembly and installation much easier. 707091

Rhino Rack worked great for transporting my bike from Missouri to South Carolina and back. Easy to load and very secure.

I'm absolutely in love with Katie, my sales consultant for her great help & excellent follow up. Fully expecting cheap Chinese junk. I was delighted with the quality of the product, (Rhino Rack) which was received day after New Years. Pretty cool when order was placed Dec 29th. 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

I purchased the Rhino Rack roof rack as an alternative to the factory installed products and the more popular Thule and Yakima brands. The Rhino Rack is solid and sleek and is largely silent while driving (if I have the roof open you can hear a soft whistle). Not only does the rack look fantastic, but the non-slip top and the strong bars make carrying things on top a real pleasure. 837664

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Overall I like the rack. Aero bars are quiet, rubber grip strip on top is nice. Product is high quality. My only gripe is the mounting feet and it’s fit on the Mercedes Metris. Each foot is only able to utilize one bolt hole on the factory placed mounts. Using 2 per foot would be much better like in most other applications I imagine. But once it’s all assembled and installed (which is very easy) it seems fine. Height spacer blocks are perfect, bars are all on the same plane. Looks good too! etrailer also has real people working customer support who answer the phone and help you out. I highly recommend the rack and buying from etrailer! 756541

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Please see my review about the Rhino Rack Legs for these Aero Crossbars. They work great! Very little noise, if any at all. My only issue was the lack of documentation. I had to figure out how to get the end caps off myself (and if I didn't have the legs, which came with a "key", I wouldn't have been able to get the end caps off because the "key" is stored within the runner of the Crossbars). Anyway, so far, these have worked great. I put a Rola roof carrier on them. So far, it's holding up well. We're taking them on a trip from Charlotte to several places in Michigan the week of 4th of July. They'll all get a good workout then. 265337

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

So far so good. The Aero 2500 racks went on in a couple of hours as I was not in a rush, wanted to do it properly and understand all I needed to to remove and reinstall these in the future. I did manage to get the Rhinorack logo facing backward on the front and forward on the back. Sorry, didn’t intend to but I’m not going to reverse them at this point. I did not take pics of these on my 2017 Prius. But they look good, less clunky than my old square Thule racks. 512463

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

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

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I was looking for a good looking product to carry my two kayaks with our camper. the product arrived in the time they said it would and was packed very well. after reading other reviews on assembly it was suggested that you read the directions first. after reading the directions I couldn't find some rubber strips so I called you company and they were very friendly and helpful and I found them I just didn't look in the right place. then started to assembly the roof racks and within 25 min. they were installed. would recommend the product and company. 411346

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


These things are strong and quiet! I have them mounted on my Land Rover Discovery Sport using the SRB legs by Rhino Rack. I've had furniture, lumber, ladders, tools, canoe, and a roof rack piled up there at some point or another and I don't have to worry about them slipping at all!!!! I've done this so much that the rubber strips are showing some wear and have frayed a bit where they've pinched the aluminum, but it's still rock solid. That's my only grip. Hopefully the replacement strips are affordable when I replace them in a year or two. I'd buy another Rhino Rack product in a heartbeat. They look great on my car and are strong and quiet on the road. I feel I made the right choice. 604273


Comments
These bars are hanging in there and holding on strong! My Discovery Sport is in the elements 99.9 of the time and the paint on these crossbars is not faded and there is no rust. The rubber seems to be holding up in the hot Louisiana sun. Ive pinched the very grippy rubber strips with heavy loads, so that is showing some wear, but otherwise its rock solid. The plastic endcaps dont feel brittle and theyre still quiet and strong. Thank yall for a great product for this vehicle!

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

After finally obtaining the correct roof rack for a 2012 Chevy Impala, installation was fairly easy, and the finished installation appears very secure. We did do a test run with a kayak attached, which was both stable and quiet (3 photos attached showing final installation before test run). 388669

  • Will Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Fit a 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid with Moonroof and Hold Kayaks and Bikes
    The Rhino-Rack roof rack # RR52SR is a fit for all models of the 2013 to 2016 Ford Fusion so I am happy to report that it will fit your Fusion hybrid. The moon roof, if it opens into a cavity in the roof and doesn't raise up above the roof line, will not be an issue. If it does rise up above the roof line then it is possible that a crossbar could get in the way. As far as the capacity of the roof rack I did some checking and the roof does not have a listed capacity in the owner's manual....

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2016 Ford Fusion Sedan
    For your 2016 Ford Fusion sedan the roof rack I recommend is the Rhino Rack part # RR52SR which is a confirmed fit. The reason I really like this rack is because it it's got aero shaped bars which help with wind noise and fuel mileage and because you get a great rack a better price than the more expensive options. If you want something a bit more budget friendly we have the square bar version of the rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK358 which is also a fit. The square...
