Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbar

These low-profile, aerodynamic Vortex Aero crossbars let you build a stylish aftermarket roof rack from scratch. The crossbars require 4 Rhino-Rack legs (manufactured in 2014 or later) and a custom fit kit to mount it to your roof. Each bar extends past the roof rack legs to maximize the space for mounting carriers and accessories. Rubberized Vortex strips in each crossbar's top channel disrupt airflow for a quiet ride, and the bars are constructed of aluminum so they won't rust. The crossbars also include Secure Core endcaps with plastic locks to help deter theft of channel-mounted accessories.


Aerodynamic Design

Vortex Aero noise-reducing top channel strips

The rubberized Vortex strips in the top channel of each 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 crossbars cut through the air with minimal drag - even at highway speeds.


Strong, Durable Construction

Vortex Aero crossbar H-shaped extrusion

The Vortex Aero crossbars are made of structural-grade anodized aluminum with H-shaped internal extrusions. These extrusions strengthen the bars without adding a significant amount of weight. And the aluminum bars won't rust so you can leave them on your roof year-round.


No-Hassle Installation

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero bottom channel ruler

Each crossbar has a channel in the bottom for mounting to Rhino-Rack roof rack legs (sold separately). Each end of the channel includes a rubber ruler to help you center the bar on your roof. Simply use the numbers and hash marks on the rulers to ensure the legs are spaced properly in the channel.


Channel-Mounted and Clamp-On Accessories

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbar top-channel strips

Each Vortex Aero 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 channels 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 bars, and the Vortex strips provide a shock-absorbing, no-slip cushion for any accessories that rest on them.


Built-In Security

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Secure Core locking endcaps

Each crossbar includes 2 Secure Core locking endcaps made of durable polypropylene. These endcaps lock with a universal tubular key. The polypropylene locks secure the endcaps to the crossbars and help to secure channel-mounted accessories to the crossbars. For maximum security, you can upgrade to endcaps with all-metal lock cores (RRVA-LEC4 - sold separately).

Package, both items appeared used, but in good condition. The legs were not in the factory box, but just a eTrailer box. The instructions were hard to follow, even with a little help from YouTube. Just about to test drive to check the noise level. Time will tell, there is soft rubber on the legs and it may be wise to remove these when not in use, especially during Florida summers.

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.

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.




by: Brian06/01/2022

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. The legs were very simple to install on the cross bars and then mount on the vehicle.




by: Ian08/14/2022

Great rack and great deal, I've been able to use the rack on more than one car by replacing just some parts.




by: Dakota05/01/2022

Exactly what I needed to replace the factory cross bars to make it easier to take off my roof top tent. Easy to install and secured nicely to the factory rails.

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.




by: James12/01/2022

I haven’t installed rack yet and everything appears to be in order.
* I wasn’t anticipating that Rhino -Rack Sports Ladder Peg (s602) be made of plastic.
Does it have the strength, durability to perform well and not get brittle in colder temps?


Comments
I wanted to let you know that the racks to do have longevity in all type of weather and are made to be taken off and on the vehicle.

Unfortunately, the vortex aero crossbars whistled very loudly on my 2022 Subaru Crosstrek. In addition, I found it difficult to center the crossbars with the SX series legs. And, finally, these legs would not stay tight for more than a day or so.

Using Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, Using Rhino Kayak holders. Also use a Rhino bicycle rear receiver mount. Love Rhino products.....strong, well engineered, low noise, and every part is quality... mounts, straps, etc. Photo is departure picture from last years trip to Big Bend, Texas. We probably put a couple thousand miles on these pieces of Rhino equipment on all types of roads at both Big Bend Park and Big Bend State Park... You really cannot go wrong buying Rhino products. Everything they make is well designed and will not disappoint.

Rhino products are just great products They work today like the day I bought them and they show very little agewear. You really cant go wrong with Rhino products.

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.

Choosing a system for transporting my new (to me, they're actually used) kayaks was TOUGH. I love my little 2017 Honda Fit, and I knew I would love my new kayaks when I got them. I don't want anything bad to happen to either! Also, my car is small and the kayaks are fairly large, comparatively. I've strapped a lot of things to a lot of vehicles, but this is going to be a long term relationship, so I wanted to get it right the first time.

I've been researching and reading reviews for months, but I got confirmation that the kayaks were ready for pickup, so I needed to make a decision! I ultimately pulled the trigger on the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars with the 2500 Series Legs and Custom DK Fit Kit for my naked roof car and the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs.

I placed my order on 09/15/21 at 6 PM. The estimated delivery date was 09/23/21, which made me a little sad. I really wanted to pick up my boats on Sunday, 09/19/21, but I figured I'd waited THIS long, I could probably handle waiting another week. I was very pleasantly surprised to receive an email at 8 PM the same evening notifying me that my order had shipped. AND, even better, the UPS tracking was showing delivery on 09/18/21 by 7PM! I was beyond excited, but didn't get my hopes up because shipping has been pretty hit or miss since well before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, UPS delivered my package just before noon on Saturday, which was amazing!

I got everything unpacked and reviewed to ensure that I had all I would need to assemble the system - check. Nothing missing, which is always an auspicious start. Then I started reading the instructions - UGH. This is (so far) the ONLY thing I have to complain about. I have put together IKEA furniture that had clearer instructions. I probably should have gone to Google to find a YouTube video, but I powered through with the instructions provided. Since I've never put together or used a roof rack before, I didn't really know what the final outcome should look like, so that made interpreting the instructions very difficult - the pictures were not super clear, and the accompanying text did not improve the situation. Now that I know what it looks like assembled, I get it, but at the time it was rough. I estimated it took me about 2 hours to get the rack assembled and secured to my car, and towards the end my fiancé arrived and helped me to realize that the foot pads were not properly attached to the feet, which made a huge difference! The kayak carrier was much easier to install, taking maybe 15 additional minutes.

The foot pads rest in the groove on the edge of the roof, I assume over the frame of the car. There's absolutely no flex in the roof where the feet sit. The hook part of the clamp rests against the metal of the car, under the rubber seal, so I don't foresee any potential issues with the seal as a result of the rack. The doors close as normal, and the rack has no movement whatsoever once tightened down. I've now used it as a handle to pull myself up towards the roof a few times (I'm about 190 lbs), and I feel totally confident that it's not going anywhere. I now have ideas about how to use the rack to haul around the larger stuff that won't fit INSIDE my car (which isn't much - I HIGHLY recommend this car!).

So, the big question - how'd it go with the kayaks?

In short - perfection! I was slightly concerned about the boats overhanging the front or back of my car, as they're 12.5 ft long and my car is just over 13 ft long. Eeeeek! I needn't have worried. They fit like a dream, and even without bow or stern tie downs were very secure during our trip home. We took local roads instead of the highway because we didn't tie down the bow and stern, so we probably didn't go over 40 ish MPH, but I saw absolutely no lift (I can see the ends of the boats out of the front windshield). I will be using those tie downs in the future, and anticipate no issues with highway speeds under those conditions.

Obviously, only time will tell how everything holds up/works out, but at this stage, I am extremely pleased with my decision and am looking forward to many kayaking adventures to come! I only have one picture at this point, but may take a few more and add them so anyone else considering a similar setup knows what they'll be getting.




by: Jay09/03/2022

Fits my 22 Subaru Outback Wilderness awesome! Great low profile and minimalist design. My only dislike is the bright white Rhino Rack logo on each foot. Sorry Rhino, your name/logo needs way more graphic design; the white silk screen was able to come off with acetone and elbow grease, but I wish the whole rack setup was fully blacked-out from the factory without bright decals or logos. One of the cross bar boxes arrived open/damaged, but contents were fine. Great rack tho!




by: Kevin08/13/2022

I am missing at least 2 of the rubber strips. The crossbar boxes arrived damaged on the ends with clear tape keeping them closed. I now have to wait to install in vehicle until those strips arrive

Rack is great but the cross bars are odd with the rubber strips when you mount things. I needed to buy new strips because they got messed up but overall good rack for roof top tent!

Easy to install and looks great




by: Love them06/18/2019

These racks are great. I looked at so many and finally decided to go with these and very glad I did. The quality is great, not hard to put together, and not too loud. Although, sunroof open would cause bugs to fly in after bouncing off these so don’t do that.


Comments
5 stars. Use these every summer. Take them off and on by myself and have never had any issue with them. Still happy as ever with my purchase.

These legs with the Rhino-rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - 59" - Black - Qty 2 are a perfect fit for our Subaru Outback Wilderness with good overhang for a kayak loader. Check out the eTrailer video showing the install on a Wilderness. The info on their site is first class and a good reason to buy from them.




by: Roger03/27/2021

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!




by: Jessica06/08/2022

Not totally quiet but better than some others! They have a nice rubber strip down the middle that act as a cushion and grip so the kayaks don’t immediately slide off when you remove the straps. Great quality as well!




by: Matt03/21/2022

I bought the rhino rack rooftop rack a year ago and am very pleased with my purchase. I also added a rhino rack bike carrier to carry my road bike with me. It has performed very well on several camping trips in the past year.




by: Jody from Baltimore04/17/2022

The rack legs and cross bars were shipped immediately and arrived 3 days ahead of the expected delivery date. I was impressed with the ease of assembly and installation. The installation videos on the web site were very helpful. The rack is fitted perfectly to my vehicle and it blends nicely with the black trim on my roof rails. I am very pleased with the equipment and the price was actually about $50 below a similar rack assembly from a well known competitor. Chelsea D, who took my order over the phone, was very helpful and made the process very simple. Thanks for exceeding my expectations.




by: Michael05/26/2020

Installed the Rhinorack system on my 2018 Honda HR-V to replace my Thule Evo system which would whistle at 50mph+. Installation was very straight forward with easy to follow instructions. Rack fit great, feels solid and no whistling or wind noise at highway speed! Highly recommend!

Oh ya. awesome low profile rack. Making it look real nice, just order a wind fairing to lower the wind noises.




by: Kate, OR02/09/2019

I am very pleased with the etrailer.com. Easy to navigate website and expedited shipping for no extra cost. I ordered and received my product in about a week, which is very reasonable for being across the country.

The product arrived in tact and with no damage. Easy to put the rack bars on my jeep. I've included pictures of the completed result. We plan on buying the attachments that will mount our bikes and when we do we will be doing so from etrailer.

For that you would want the item # RRVA118B-2, item # RRRLKVA, and item # DK226 which is a confirmed fit. I attached an install video for this rack on a similar 2013 Equinox as well.

  • Roof Rack for 2006 Honda Pilot with Raised Side Rails to Haul Four Kayaks
  • While we have an option for your 2006 Honda Pilot with raised side rails, the longer 54 inch bars of the Rhino Rack are not confirmed to fit because the way they mount is via channels under the bars, and the Rhino Rack bars have channels that do not go all the way under the bar. If you take a look at the photo you can see the difference between the Rhino-Rack bars and Yakima JetStream bars that are the better option for longer crossbars because their channel runs all the way underneath.

  • Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack for 2019 Ford Expedition with Factory Rails and No Crossbars
  • I actually had the chance to work with a 2019 Ford Expedition. While in the shop, I tested the RhinoRack roof racks we had shown to be compatible with the factory installed rails and to my surprise, the SX Series Legs # RRSX100 were not a fit. When trying to install them, I could tell they were not tall enough to catch on the rather large and triangular shape of the Expedition rails. The only style of legs or towers that will work is the kind that wraps around the entire bar, like the

  • 2015 Honda Odyssey Roof Rack and 2-Kayak Carrier Recommendation
  • With the raised rails on your 2015 Honda Odyssey, you can easily install a Rhino Rack roof rack like the part numbers # RRVA137B-2 and # RRSX100. This is a great aero bar roof rack that gives you the higher quality without the higher price tag of the other options. For a 2-kayak carrier the Rhino-Rack 2 # S512-S512X is a great option for carrying both of your kayaks. This is a padded rack that also can fold down when not in use that's easy to use overall. It also comes with all straps

  • Crossbar Recommendation for my 2015 Honda Odyssey With Raised Side Rails
  • I really like the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack System. It uses the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars part # RRVA137S-2 and the Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars part # RRSX100. While these do not attach directly to holes in the rails they are designed to clamp on to them and give you an extremely secure roof rack system. This is typical of any raised rail roof rack system

  • Recommended Replacement Feet for Old Square Crossbars with 2019 Jeep Cherokee
  • While updating your Thule roof rack to make it compatible with your 2019 Jeep Cherokee, if you want to stay with your square bar style I recommend the Inno Feet for Square Crossbars - Raised Side Rails - Black - Qty 4 # INFR . These are designed for the square bars and will be compatible with the old discontinued Thule square load bars. My recommendation if you want to upgrade is to go with an aero bar instead of the old square bar. For that I suggest the Rhino-Rack which is our most

  • Recommended Rhino Rack Roof Rack for 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek
  • Rhino Rack offers a reasonably priced Aero-style bar system for the roof of your Crosstrek. Assuming your Crosstrek has the rails that run from front to back along the edge of the roof, you'd need the # RRSX100 roof rack feet and either # RRVA118B-2 for black crossbars or # RRVA118S-2 for silver. Anytime a roof accessory is added to a vehicle, there will be a certain amount of noise caused by the wind hitting the crossbars. This is typically worse with the square crossbars, but with

  • Can I Open a the 2017 Jeep Renegade My Sky Roof with a Roof Rack Installed
  • Because of the design of the My Sky sunroof on the 2017 Jeep Renegade, there won't be a roof rack available that is going to allow you to open the sunroof with it attached; you'll still be able to put a roof rack on your vehicle, but you won't be able to open the roof with the system installed. With that said, the Rhino Rack roof rack that uses parts # RRSX100 and # RRVA126B-2 you were looking at is a really nice choice. You may want to consider adding the end caps with the metal locks

  • Will Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars and SX Legs Fit a 2015 Honda Pilot
  • The 54" Vortex Crossbars # RRVA137B-2 and SX Series Legs # RRSX100 from Rhino-Rack will fit great on your 2015 Honda Pilot as long as you have the raised rails. If you don't have the raised rails then we need to look at a different brand of roof rack as Rhino-Rack doesn't have a fit for the naked roof version of your Pilot. For your application I recommend the Yakima JetStream system which is an improved version of the Vortex bars you were looking at. For a complete roof rack system

  • Is There a Roof Rack for 2013 Chrysler Town and Country with Stow 'N Place Factory Rack
  • I checked for fits for 2013 Town and Country vans but could not find anything in regards to these having raised side rails. What I think you are probably referring to is that you have the Stow 'N Place factory roof rack on your vehicle, where the crossbars are stowed lengthwise when they aren't being used. The Rhino-Rack # RRSX100 will not work with this rack, and there are no fits for traditional racks that can be used with this vehicle if it has the factory rack. If you need an additional
