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.

etrailer’s service was great. Finding vehicle accessories in this day and age is very challenging to say the least. After initially being told that one of the items was on back order and wouldn’t be delivered for several months, I was pleasantly surprised to receive an e-mail that my entire order was on its way. Three days later, all of the items were at my front door. Thanks for the great service, etrailer!

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.


Comments
I am still very satisfied after a year of using the Rhino-Rack. I have used it about 8 times transporting my kayak with no issues. The longest trip was about 45 miles, part of it was interstate driving at 75 mph. Stays tight on the roof with very slight wind noise.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Great addition to the bed track of my 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz! I got these for my rhino rack rod holder since they made such noise on the oem roof rack. So happy I went with rhino rack. You can't beat the price and the quality is as good if not better than Thule or Yakima. Highly reccomend.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Very nice rack package. Everything was complete, and install was easy 4/10. I had used another review for the hole spacing, as it was easier. Holes at each end 5/8 in then at 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, for a total of 8 on each rail. I bought the heavy duty set, that’s why there’s 8. The standard has only 6/rail. I marked a centerline on the cap, and put the rails at 36” on center. I used painters tape to be sure they were straight. I also measured , and laid out the holes on the cap and drilled a SINGLE HOLE at the 36” mark. Then verified that the end holes would hit the reinforced portion of my ARE cap. Once that was verified, I drilled the rest of the holes. Because of the camber of the cap, a second person is helpful (holding the rail tight to the cap) when tightening up the nuts from inside the cap. After that, the rest was easy. Just center the rail mounts and lock them in. I would definitely recommend this rack set up, Especially since it was half of what my local Yakima dealer quoted me.
This was installed on a 2016 Silverado, 2500.
Tools used- Tape measure, grease pencil, painters tape, 1/4” drill bit and Cordless drill.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I give all 5 stars for the product and service, but...I prefer the parts to be all in one carboard, also I was a little panicking looking for blue plastic key...It was inside of cross-bar ??not falling out with strips. Anyway,
I"m owner of Honda cr-v 2022 with bare roof ,and I just installed the rack. Was it simple enough? Yes,so I can share this:
First, rubber pads are all the same, and after placements to plastic legs should be placed with arrow*out*-that is it(a lot of info regarding vertical parts, that they are all different)??
Second, on other hand, in video we informed that clamps are same -they are not. Bigger "hooks" are for rear bar, smaller ones-for the front one.
Third, do not expect precision in rubber pads position(especially on rear bar)regarding plastic rail strips on bare roof.it is not achievable, just try to make same look on both sides.
I was worried about rain and water gets inside. Well, let us see.
What I plan to care on rack? Just a small 6ft step ladder. Believe me or no CR-V is my business vehicle ,and ladder carry was the goal of rack purchase. And only question I have if I can get to underground parking with no problems to cross the front entries usually limited with 6 ft in heights I will find out soon, but rack height plus ladder on it makes me worry.??The review will be update soon. regards.


Comments
Thank you for your review on the installation of your rack. If the garage has a clearance of 6 feet, you will not be able to park there with your CR-V with the rack on. The CR-V itself is 5.5 feet tall.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I purchased the complete 2500 Series system which included the crossbars, legs and fit kit for my 2018 Honda Fit so I could transport my kayak.. They were well packaged and their quality is quite evident. I did struggle a little following the assembly instructions but with some patience and watching a video it went well. Two items to be aware of. The front and rear leg clamps are of different lengths with the longer clamps going on the rear crossbar. The other issue was positioning the crossbars. After following the measurements for attaching the legs to the crossbars it was quite clear that the measurement for the rear crossbar was wrong. Placing the legs as instructed didn't allow the rear crossbars to be the 29 17/32 inches from the front crossbar but required me to move it back to 31 1/2 inches. There is a very faint whistle while driving around 30 to 35 mph but it's not annoying. I was so pleased with the fit and finish I went ahead and purchased the Rhino Rack S-loader to make it easier for me to lift my kayak onto the crossbars. I would definitely recommend both items.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


At first I didn’t know how to get the end pieces off because I thought it was locked and didn’t know where the key was. After pulling one of the ends pieces off, I saw that the blue key was inside the crossbar next to the measuring strips. Took me a minute but figured that part out, but the instructions were easy to follow. Can’t wait to test it out on my Kayaks! I have this installed on my Toyota Corolla LE 2013.

This has endeared Mn winters and transporting kayaks back and forth from lakes and cabins and it still looks good! I highly recommend the investment!

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


This roof rack works great! At first I was skeptical about putting a rack on my IS250, but it couldn't have turned out better. Paired with the Yakima Highroad, I can easily transport my bikes around without worrying about anything coming loose while driving. The installation instructions for the legs and bars are pretty straightforward. Takes about 30-45 minutes total to install.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I posted a detailed review with photos in my fit kit review by Anthony. If your thinking of getting a rack system this is the one to get and etrailer is the place to get it. This is a fabulous design. Strong and aerodynamic.


Comments
Ive used the rack to transport my boat numerous times. the rack is as strong as I hoped. Ive traveled maybe 70mph with no issue. Ive read how people had trouble with racks tearing off their vehicle. Ill say that this is the owners fault because they misjudge the strength of wind at highway speed . I secure my boat to the rack so it cant shift and then cargo strap it to the vehicle tow hooks or chassis so there is downward pressure on the rack. As a note- always remember to periodically check the screws on the legs for proper tension.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I purchased the Rhino legs, cross bars and J-style kaya carriers together and could not be more pleased with the combination. The system was installed in an evening and used the next day. Assembly and installation was easy. The most difficult part was getting an even extension from the legs on both sides of the vehicle. I put a vortex strip with the ruler in each side to adjust and then tightened the screws. This set the back part of the leg in place which made installing the strips on the bottom easy as well. With strips filling all the gaps in the cross bar there is no wind noise at all.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Overall unimpressed. Item took nearly a month to arrive from eTrailer despite being in-stock and an estimated delivery time of two days at checkout. The rack looks good but the leg locking bars are made of plastic, not sure why for the price. Not enough hardware was supplied to install following the instructions. Instructions show split lock washers on each bolt. Had to purchase additional split lock washers. Not impressed with the fact that I now need to keep up with 3 specialty tools to service/remove this rack that is supposed to be quick release. 1 key to lock the bases, 1 key to remove the bar end caps and a 5mm safety post Allen which is a stupid tool anyway. The hardware should be standard Allen or torx not safety. The tube end caps should be able to be removed with a flat head or normal tool and not a proprietary key. This would eliminate two superfluous tools. Overall I would not buy this rack again, I would go with a different system.

Great Roof Rack! It is super quiet when driving down the road even when going 75+ mph. Exceeded all my expectations. I paired mine with the Rhino Rack Hybrid Bike Carrier (RBC050). I’m able to fully open my hatchback (2018 Honda Civic 5dr) and it looks great as well.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


2020 Ford Edge with Vista Roof. Product arrived ahead of predicted delivery date. Very easy to assemble and directions were very easy to follow. Product is very high quality. I found 150mm front and 140mm rear to be the correct dimensions (I read a feedback that said they were not correct). No problems with Vista Roof, legs sit on the metal roof part not the glass. Overall very pleased with my purchase.

My kit is missing the track leg base, cover, and all associated mounting hardware. Customer service cannot confirm expedited shipping for the missing parts. A little quality control goes a long way. I mounted the tracks in one afternoon, but will have to wait to mount the bars and my GEAR!

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Indeed they were the wrong parts in the box marked demo on them.
The new parts came and I was able to
Put it on my car with no problem!!

Thank you for listening to me and helping me problem solve. It looks great on my car and I'm ready to load the kayaks now!!

Kalie is a gal that sent me some return labels so I'm going to put that on the box and send it back to you guys!




by:

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


The cross bars are nice however the fixed mount points and hardware supplied sit to high so the molding for the feet are to short and leave the mounting points somewhat exposed. Also the car paint made the fixed point mount screws difficult to install. If using fixed point mounts, I suggest getting a grade 8 bolt or a tap to clean the mounting points prior to trying to install the mounting screws.

Just what I was looking for for my 2021 MB Metris Cargo Van with Raised Rails, for hauling a 14-foot SUP. I wanted as low profile as possible and the Rhino Rack SX Series Legs and Aero Crossbars looked best. Relatively easy to set up.

Very straight forward to install. Took about a half hour in total. No whistling whatsoever. They look awesome on my 2016 Ford Explorer Sport! Especially with my running boards and tires...
Waiting on my Rhino basket to get here to install that next!




by:

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


Straightforward installation and high quality product. I had to shift the front bar a few inches more towards the hood than the instructions suggested. I think this is because the 2021 Durango refresh slightly changed the roof profile. I can detect no noise coming from these bars while driving at any speeds.

  • Height of 2009 Ford F150 When Rhino Rack RR79YR Roof Rack is Installed
    Installing the Rhino Rack # RR79YR roof rack would add 4 inches of height to the vehicle. I can't provide exact numbers, because the actual vehicle height can vary according to the tires that the vehicle is equipped with. Ford doesn't provide a vehicle height for each rim size, just a range. My research indicates that a 2009 Ford F150 will sit between 71-1/2 and 76-1/2 inches tall.

  • Recommended Roof Rack Setup For 2007 Ford F-150 Super Crew
    Crossbar towers and feet are not typically interchangeable between brands. Since Malone doesn't make a crossbar kit for your 2007 Ford F-150 Super crew, I do not see a way for you to use the Malone crossbars that you have. While I'm sure this isn't the news you were wanting to hear, I will go ahead and recommend a crossbar setup for you in case you decide to buy a new one.

    For your 2012 Ford F-150 Raptor Supercrew the Rhino Rack ROC25 part number # RR79YR is a fit and is the flush bar design you are looking for. This is a rack that consists of a front and rear bar too just to clarify and not a single bar with a hitch upright setup.

  • Can Two 12 Foot Kayaks be Carried on a Rhino-Rack Roof Rack on a Ford F-150 SuperCab
    The weight capacity of the Rhino-Rack roof rack # RR79YR is 165 pounds so the rack itself can handle the 2 kayaks provided they do not exceed the capacity of the rack or of the truck roof. Consult the truck owners manual and/or Ford for the capacity of the roof. The bar spread with this rack installed will be 29-1/2 inches on center. This is a good spread for kayaks. For kayak carriers I recommend the SportRack carrier # SR5511 which holds one kayak, so you would need two. This carrier...
