Review of Rhino Rack Roof Rack RRVA106B

Today we're gonna taking a look at the Rhino-rack Vortex Aero Crossbar with the matte black finish. This is a sleek aerodynamic low profile crossbar that's gonna let you build an aftermarket roof rack for your vehicle. That way you can easily haul your roof mount accessories. This is gonna require your Rhino-rack legs and a custom fit kit to fit your vehicle. Those items are sold separately if you're in need you can find them here at But again this is a slim electrical crossbar shape that's really gonna help create an extremely aerodynamic system. The full length bar is gonna extend past your roof rack leg, which is gonna help maximize space for your carriers and accessories.

Along the top of the bar it's gonna feature a nice top channel, that's gonna let you add channel mounted carriers and accessories to your roof rack. And this will also accept most clamp on accessories, as it would mount conveniently around the bars. The bar is designed to accept most roof mount accessories that are designed for aero and elliptical roof racks. Here on the top we're gonna have the rubberized vortex strips in the top channel. These are really gonna help dramatically reduce drag and wind noise. Now this is gonna have a multi-piece design so, the vortex strips are gonna come in different pieces.

That way it allows for easier installation of the accessories. Got the end caps included, and the strips can just be removed or trimmed and then replaced once you have your accessories in that top channel. They're also gonna assist when it comes to keeping dirt and grime out of the crossbar. And they're gonna provide a nice cushion as well as slip-resistance for your cargo that you have mounted on top of the bar. Here on the bottom, you can see right here it's gonna have a bottom channel. And it's gonna have this ruler that goes in the channel.

This is gonna help center your crossbar on your roof. And it's gonna help insure proper leg placement when you have this installed on your vehicle. Now when you install the leg kit the rulers will actually have to be trimmed or cut. Once the leg kit is installed you can actually place the ruler strips, one on each side of that leg kit to fill the space here in the channel. And that's gonna help further reduce wind noise during travel.

But I just wanted you to see that it does have that ruler down there that really allows for an easier installation and correct placement of that leg kit as well as making sure that the bar is centered on the vehicle. Same setup here on the opposite side of the bar. Again, they do include the end caps. The end caps go directly here at the end of the bar. And it's going to have a lockable design so the way that this comes to you is it's gonna have inaudible 00:02:42 lock cores with these universal keys. So you just rotate it and that's really gonna help deter theft of your accessories. The end caps can be upgraded to all metal locks. So that plastic lock can be upgraded to an all metal lock for added security. Your metal locks are going to be sold separately. The other thing I want to point out is that these bars are made from a lightweight structural grade anodized aluminum. So they're gonna be corrosion resistant as well as rust proof. It's gonna feature the internal H-shaped excrusion that's gonna provide acceptional bar strength. When it comes to the weight capacity we're looking at 165 pound weight capacity when used as a two bar system. You always want to refer to your vehicle's owner's manual to check roof capacity to see what it can actually handle. When it comes to demensions of the bar, it's gonna give us a width measurement of three and one-eighth of an inch. With a height measurement of one and three-sixteenths of an inch. Now when it comes to the length of the bar, that's really gonna vary depending on your application. These bars are available here at and they're sold in different lengths. The bars are available in a forty-one inch, forty-four inch, forty-nine inch, fifty-four inch, fifty-nine inch, sixty-five inch and seventy-one inch lengths. And they're gonna be covered with a limited lifetime warranty. That's gonna do it for today's look at the Rhino-rack Vortex Aero Crossbar with the matte black finish.
