Review of the Rhino Rack Ski and Snowboard Racks on a 2021 Toyota 4Runner


Hi, everyone. Aden here with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Rhino-Rack ski and snowboard carrier here on our 2021 Toyota 4Runner. Now this is going to carry the skis or snow snowboards in between these clamps. So we can just press on these large outer buttons. They're spring loaded so they'll pop right up and we can load up our gear in here.

And then whenever we want to head out, we can close it down, the latch in place. We can lock it up and we're good to go. We've got these large rubber pads that are holding everything nice and tight with that really good grip, but also serving as really good padding. I can fit my whole hand in here, nothing's hurting, it's all compressing and just holding it nice and safely. I like that these arms are spring loaded too because I don't wanna have to be holding these up while I'm trying to get my geared down.

The 4Runner is already a tall vehicle. So any sort of barrier to make this more difficult is gonna be hard to work with really. And getting these unloaded is pretty easy. The only thing is just that distance. You can see we've got these outer clamps on the outside of our feet for our roof rack, getting it a little closer to the edge, making that loading and unloading a bit easier.

But if you're not too tall, you're still gonna have to lean in, maybe get in the door jam to reach those back skis or snowboards. As far as capacity goes, you can hold four pairs of skis or two snowboards. So that's pretty good. They do offer other sizes and capacities if you need more. Now, something I do like about this is the fact that it locks.

So we've got our lot cores on the outside keeping our gear secure inside. And with the clamps, although they don't have lock cores on them, they have a special Allen key that will basically keep this secure. If someone we're to walk up to it and just have an Allen key on them, they aren't going to be able to loosen this because it has that special tool in there. The only downside to that really is that you have to have that tool. It takes a little while to tighten down. So throwing this on your roof before or after a trip, it takes a little bit longer to get tightened down. Something like the Inno ski and snowboard carrier is a bit quicker to get clamped on. So if that's something you're worried about, just be sure to check that out. Now, for some measurements here, we wanna see how far it's going to be sticking up. There are some lower profile options out there but these ones are only gonna stick up probably like 5 1/2 inches to the top here. And I'm taking that measurement from the top of your roof rack. Some roof racks are gonna sit a little bit differently on your 4Runner. So just go to your crossbars to the top side, measure our 5 1/3 inches up, and that's where these are gonna sit on your vehicle. Now, I like this as opposed to a roof box because roof boxes tend to get more expensive, they are a lot bulkier, harder to store. So if you're looking for a simpler solution to haul your skis and snowboards, this might be a great way to do it. Thanks for watching..
