Do Rhino Rack Vortex Crossbars Have an Upward Curvature?


Hi, I had Yakima Jetstream going across my retractable truck cover but I did not like the upward curvature they had, visually they didnt look right over a flat truck bed and made bike carriers lean outward a bit. I am wondering if the Rhino Rack Vortex bars have the same kind of upward curvature, or if they are flat. If they are curved upward, is the curvature as extreme as the Yakima Jetstream is? thanks!

Expert Reply:

The Rhino-Rack Vortex Bars are slightly bowed in the longer bar options to help support the weight when applied to the center of the bar. Most manufacturers have this as a part of the aero bar design. If you want a more straight bar, then you will want to instead use the heavy duty bars like # Y01-120B-NT for the track system or # RB1375B-2 for just the crossbars. There are longer bars like # RB1500B-2 and # RB1650B-2 if desired.
