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.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I have been using etrailer for many years and have never had a bad purchase. We are about to start traveling quite a bit with our 5th wheel. Putting our kayaks on the back of the trailer was not an option. I researched several roof top carriers and this package was by far the best value and quality. The Rhino rack is awesome, works extremely well with kayak "J" carriers and installed relatively easy. There was an issue with the measurements for the underside channel covers. For my Ram, they were short. But I always use the old adage of measure 2, 3 or 4 times. Cut once. Saved me a few problems here. As alway7s with etrailer, we are very pleased with the product, the serv ice and the information before purchasing.

Love the bars, I had gotten the other rack parts from different suppliers. I love the look and sleek design of the Rhino Rack. I did the 2500 vortex on a 2016 Subaru Impreza sedan and it fits great and looks even better.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


TLDR: It's a good product with (literal) strength, and some weaknesses. Its cheaper than the competitors, and its in stock now. I mainly bought this due to inventory issues from the other main competitors. That it costs about 100 bucks less is nice, but the reasons for the cost difference is noticeable if you've ever used Thule or Yakima products before. Installation was not more or less irritating than any other roof rack (I've installed MANY over the years). Materials are similar, but the plastic parts feel cheaper than Thule or Yakima, and they towers have exposed innards on the inside faces that make it look cheap, and may create more noise. The fit kit feet are good, but the hooks are 2 pieces pinned together instead of formed and cut to custom lengths. This makes them bulkier than the competition. Apparently they are rated for 33% more weight than the others, and that's cool if you need to haul heavy stuff on top. All said, I'd probably buy their stuff again in a pinch, or if I was trying to save money, but for fit and finish I would go with Thule or Yakima

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.

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Roof Rack


I am extremely pleased with this product and the etrailer.com. I would definitely purchase this item again and will look to etrailer.com for future purchases. The item arrived quickly and completely as described. The pictures and videos provided on the website ensured I got exactly what I wanted and helped guide the install. My only critique is I received three different installation manuals and didn't realize at first they were for different products. They were very similar so I didn't notice the difference prior to drilling the holes in my topper. Thankfully I did notice prior to creating any major problems, but I ended up adding a few more bolts than my application required (which means more holes drilled in my topper) and it was in metric instead of standard (should have been my first clue). I'm not sure why I received installation manuals for other material, so just take minute to make sure you're referencing the correct one. Additionally, measure multiple times, drill ONCE! I was very nervous to drill holes in my topper so I must have measured 6 or 7 times. I finally just had to go for it. The painters tape was very important for measuring and aligning and prevented my drill bit from sliding. I also used a brand new multipurpose drill bit.

The crossbars are great, but the rubber strip in the middle gets bunched up or comes out when loading heavy items across the bar. But the rubber provides grip, and the grip is amazing. I am not worried about kayaks or rafts sliding around. I do need longer ones though...

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.

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 really like these flush rails! Because my Honda Fit's roof is already sort of in the danger zone for me hitting my head every time I bend down to put the kid in the car seat or whatever else, having traditional crossbars stick out into space beyond the roof line would have been a recipe for a black eye. Installation was very quick and secure, and road noise isn't bad at all.

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


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.

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.

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.

Just installed this rack on my 2015 CRV with a naked roof and it took a little over an hour. Simple instructions and assembly but be sure that your feet are in the exact spot recommended. After initial install, the foot on the front driver's door caused a very minor drip/leak from the door seal during a heavy downpour. Simply moving it 1/16" took care of the leak. Great rack and I hardly notice any noise driving on the highway.

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.

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


Roof rack cross bars look great on my 2018 F-150 crew cab. Instructions are a bit confusing. However, still an easy install. Note: Instructions refer to a RL, RR, FL and FR rubber bracket pad. Kit included two of each RL and RR. Same used on front and rear bar. Also, front bar is the one that is slightly shorter. Front requires a bit more persuasion with the clamps to pull it into the roof crevices. Rear drops straight in. So far, so good. Ready to haul two kayaks. Also, great customer service from etrailer. I questioned front fit and they verified it was correct parts.

Excellent product! I installed this roof rack on my brand new 2020 Honda Civic Sport. Since my car has dual center exhaust, a hitch mount was not an option. I paired it with the RockyMounts Brass knuckles wheel on bike carrier. It was straight forward to install and for over a year everything has worked flawlessly. Obviously I take a hit on fuel economy especially at highway speeds with 2 bikes on the roof. I recently took a road trip and averaged about 31 mpg (would be about 38 mpg with no racks or bikes). However without bikes, I was averaged about 35 mpg which isn't too much impact. The Rhino Racks were a little bit less expensive than the competition but no compromises at all. Definitely recommend these Rhino Racks and RockyMounts Brass knuckles bike carrier.

Everyone where I live said they were out of the Rhino-Rack roof rack, and they didn't know when they would get it back in stock. I seen it on etrailer.com, so I called and asked if it was really in stock. Steve Z. Took me call and said yes and it would ship out in a day or so. I had never heard of this web site and was a little concerned. Shipping was fast and I received everything I ordered. Received a follow-up email asking if everything was correct and if I had any problems. Great company and great customer service.

  • Recommendation to Carry Two Kayaks on Roof of 2009 Buick Enclave
    To carry two kayaks on your 2009 Buick Enclave you will need to use the Rhino Rack roof rack # RR89SR. This setup will give you the crossbars on the roof of your vehicle, that run from side-to-side, and allow you an attachment point for a kayak carrier. To carry the two kayaks I recommend the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073. It's a J-style carrier for one kayak but allows you to carry a second wtih additional tie-downs using part # Y04031.
