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.

Like the racks very much. Easy to install first time (if you follow instructions correctly!). Once assembled, easy to remove and reinstall (naked roof). Used for Kayak and felt very secure on the car. Very please.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I searched a lot of websites before finding what I needed on etrailer.com for my 2012 Suzuki GV. I was looking for the proper mounts to install a Kayak rack system. Because my vehicle has a built in rail system it was very confusing what was needed. Thank you etrailer for hooking me up with the appropriate parts for the Rhino system, it worked great!

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


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.

Have used the roof rack on our Ford F350 to carry 2 kayaks while towing our 5th wheel. It has worked well and allowed us to bring our kayaks with us while we RV around the country.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


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!

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


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.

Purchases these two Rhine Rack crossbars to extend the with of my Rhino platform. Made my own pieces to slide into the crossbar that I tapped and bolted the crossbars to the existing crossbars. Also shimmed between the crossbars to make them flush with the Rhino platform.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


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.


Comments
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.

The Rhino rack track system is engineered perfectly. Installed on a 2006 f150 crew cab. The only complaint I have is with Snugtop. They install a soft reinforced cardboard center on the underside of the topper that makes the Rhino tracks install on a curved surface. Very pleased with the install. You will need 2 people for the install. Don't attempt alone. P.S The 1st order was damaged during shipping and Alex at customer service was able to get us a comparable setup in the time frame needed. Customer service goes a long way. I will be ordering from etrailer in the future.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I purchased two Vortex Aero crossbars as part of a complete roof rack system for my kayak. My vehicle is a 2013 Ford F-150 FX4 with sunroof. The sunroof is no problem with the Rhino Rack 2500 system I am very pleased with the Rhino Rack 2500 system. It is very strong, easily handling my 42 lb kayak, which is 19’ long. I recommend mounting the kayak carriers to their final position on the crossbars prior to cutting the plastic strips. The plastic strips prevent wind from causing whistling noises at highway speeds. These plastic strips can be inserted into the tracks on the top side of the crossbars with the kayak carriers premounted. Simply cut the strips to filt all empty track sections and carefully press the plastic strips into their respective track sections. Note that the bottom side of the crossbars also have tracks. The empty track spaces on the bottom side use a different type of plastic strip. The bottom plastic strips look like a plastic ruler, with graduations in millimeters. This is described in the user direction guide. It took me a while to figure that out! My crossbars do not whistle at all at any speed up to the max I have tried at 75MPH.

Well built. Just not a good fit for my f150 roof. It makes a lot of vibrating noise in the cab from wind. I got them for the snowboard rack and for 16 ft canoe. Hope this helps anyone who is planning on using them for similar uses. Maybe look for something else.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Bought this a few weeks ago and finally got around to installing it yesterday. Overall it is very easy to install. I assembled everything in my shop and set the rails about 1 inch wider that what I actually wanted them to be. Put the whole assembly on the roof the the camper shell and centered using a soft seamstress tape measure. Once centered I marked the holes, i then cut the rails down 3 inches and put it back on the roof. I am real OCD so everything was measured precise and equal. Once I was ready to drill holes I measured everything again and once I got up my nerve I drilled all 16 holes in the roof. I did not use the butyl supplied with the racks, instead I used windshield urethane ( I installed windshield in a previous life). I then lined everything up and installed the rails. Before screwing down I put some large D-rings in place and the tightened the lock nuts. The D-rings will allow me to hang things from them. Now I am just waiting to strap my surfboards to the top and head to the beach.

I put this on my 2020 Ford F150 that has a ARE topper on it. I didn't need the tracks that came with it, as I had ARE put their factory Yakima tracks on it when I ordered the topper. Easy to install and goes on/off quick and simple.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


You have to order the cross bars and connector hardware separately. I also ordered the end cap locks. I consider myself a pretty good DYI person and it took longer than I expected according to other reviews on here to get everything installed and overlapping the same on both sides. Once installed the crossbars are very solid. I do get noticeable wind noise at say 70+MPH. I installed these on a 2020 Jeep GC Overland and they look and function great! Was a bit concerned about the sun roof retraction with the bars, but there is plenty of clearance. No issue. I for sure recommend the Rhino Rail crossbars. Etrailer is a great site to get the bars. Given the COVID issues and supply chain breakdowns retailers are facing, they still had everything I ordered to me in a very reasonable time frame.

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.

I just received the Rhino-Rack ROC25 roof rack system. I paid for express shipping and it arrived the next day. Went on my 2019 Ford F150 SuperCrew rather easily and took about 30 minutes to install. I will be carrying two kayaks this weekend on an 8 hour road trip so I will do a follow up review after the trip.

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 love my Rhino Rack roof rack. It has been used in the past year for moving large items like an extension ladder for working on the house and I have a cargo box I use for road trips. I’ve noticed zero wind noise from the rack and would recommend to anyone considering this rack.

The cross bars assembled easily and with some assistance mounted to the car perfectly. I just got them on tonight and am going to be doing a bit of driving tomorrow and will report back with any noise issues. I do not expect any issues. I have purchased a few things for the same vehicle from etrailer and have been pleased all around with each.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


The system seems well thought out. I put mine together and placed on top of the canopy to mark the location before drilling as the canopy is slightly narrower toward the front. I like the idea of security hardware but it doesn’t us it throughout. Tower slide along the track bolts are security but not the bar to tower bolts. It’s only 4 more. Also for the price of the system you would think it would come with the metal keyed bar ends that are optional. The kit cam with three sets of instructions. Do review them. The spacing for the track bolt holes you need to drill in the top of the canopy are incorrect for the 63 inch tracks. I suggest making a template for drilling so both sides or the same and check the measurements! Rather expensive but all in all I think it’s a quality product that looks good too. Plan on transporting kayaks and bikes met long lumber is also an option. There are lots of accessories for this rack. I couldn’t figure out how to register the product on the Rhino website and was not provided a mail in card.

Ask the Experts about this Rhino Rack Roof Rack

  • 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....

    For your 2016 Ford Fusion sedan the roof rack I recommend is the Rhino Rack part # RR52SR which is a confirmed fit.
