Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier

Whether you are hauling 3 pairs of skis, 2 snowboards, or a family-size load of fishing poles, this carrier ensures that you will arrive at your destination with all your gear intact - and you'll do it without breaking the bank.


Locking Carrier

The Rhino-Rack ski and fishing rod carrier comes with a lock on each unit, offering you peace of mind when you are hanging at the lodge after a long day on the slopes or out on the lake in your boat.


Large Push Button

The carrier operates with a large push button on the side of the unit. This design allows for easy loading and unloading of skis, a snowboard, or fishing rods, even if you're wearing fingerless mittens or big, bulky winter gloves.


Universal Mounting Hardware

The ski and fishing rod carrier mounts in the top channel of your Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero or Heavy-Duty crossbars with T-bolts. It also comes with universal clamp-on mounting hardware that lets you use the carrier on round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars right out of the box.


A riser kit (S550 - sold separately) is available to accommodate your skis or snowboards with tall bindings. The risers mount to the spacer nuts on the bottom of your rack and attach to your crossbars with a special fit kit (WR09 - sold separately). These kits add 1-3/8 inches of additional clearance between the bottom of the carrier and your vehicle's roof. If you have Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty crossbars, you will need to use fit kit WR02 instead of WR09.


Soft Molding

This carrier protects your gear with soft rubber molding inside the hinged arms of the carrier. The molding gently cradles your skis, snowboard, or fishing rods and won't damage paint or cause abrasions.

I think these racks will be excellent during ski outings for many years. I attached them directly to the C-grooves on my Aero bars rather than using the provided clamps. The C-groove attachment is stronger and slightly lower profile. I love the large release buttons!.

I can't ski, I fly fish. However my oldest decided to try downhill skiing after being gifted a pair of skis. I am budget minded should the skiing not work out and after breaking many rod tips decided this might solve 2 problem. I am very pleased w/this equipment holder. It has transported skis & ski poles too and from and no longer does my oldest have to dodge skies coming over the back seat. So far it has taken abuse from the rain (& freezing rain), snow, ice, rapid warming, road salt, and upwards of 70mph and there has been no shifting, loosening, breaking of plastic or any other noticeable problems. I am excited for spring to see how it transports my fly rods.

Clamp came almost ready to install, which was great for getting it on my rack in less than 30 minutes. It is very sturdy and holds my boards great! I was concerned my crossbars would be too thick, so the feet of the clamp's wouldn't fit around them, but they fit snug and secure.




by:

Advertised as being able to hold 3 skis. 2 pair of skis yes - 3 adult skis no.


Comments
There is a certain way you have to pair the skis up for all of them to fit. There is a photo above in the description of all 3 pairs of skis.

This ski/snowboard holder is extremely easy to install, very sturdy and looks good. I tried driving at freeway speeds and could not hear any whistling or wind noise so far. The included locks are definitely a bonus.




by:

Very happy with our new ski rack! Easy to install and very stable. Needed this smaller rack because a full size one will NOT fit a 2019 Jeep. This one is just right!




by:

Best there is. Never mind spending 300+ get these for half of that and quality is just as good even better. Would highly recommend




by:

This has worked out great for our family to hit the ski slopes last winter and again this winter. Very easy to use, put on at beginning of winter, and remove when the slopes close for the season.




by:

Great product, my daughter loves it.




by:

Yes, my package arrived safe, and quick! It arrive in less than a week!

Unfortunately we have to take the bindings off to stow two boards but it will create much needed space in our SUV and I trust that my boards will be secure from theft. They will be a new staple on my car for the rest of the winter and allow us to make quick and easy trips to the mountains.

Review from a similar Locking Ski Rack in Ski and Snowboard Racks


This rack works great with the four pairs of skis I lugged from Oregon to Alaska. I'm using it on the beef rack cross bars that came with my go fast camper which are very difficult to find mountings for. This one worked great though with a little bit of metal grinding on the bolts that slide into the t-slot of the rack. It locks and unlocks fairly easily (with a little bit of jangling involved), but so far so good!

Review from a similar Locking Ski Rack in Ski and Snowboard Racks


The Rhino Rack was easy to put up on a 2018 Subaru Outback. Took me about 10 minutes. The only issue is that the rack bottom bracket piece is is convex with an acute angle which makes it not fit perfectly on the Subaru crossbar that has a flat bottom.
Loaded 2 pairs of skis and poles and the rack kept them securely fastened during transport on the highway. There was some noise from the rack during highway driving but it was minimal.


Comments
Very good. Have hauled skis on it several times. Very easy to take down and put up for each season.

Review from a similar Locking Ski Rack in Ski and Snowboard Racks


I'm very happy with this product so far. I've used it for skis and fishing poles and everything stays secure without causing any additional noise.


Comments
Its still working great and Im looking forward ski season #2! One lesson learned when leaving the ski resort is that the rack is more challenging to close and lock in very cold temperatures. I recommend locking the rack onto the skis inside a garage or another area where temps are above 40 degrees.

Review from a similar Locking Ski Rack in Ski and Snowboard Racks


The rack system works well and I like it. I like the “low-profile look” as well. However, the spacing was to wide. I had to re rivet one side of each bar in order for it to fit the rack of my AWD Toyota Matrix. I have since purchased a Thule cargo box that works and looks awesome. I just hope I don’t overload my little matrix!!

Great racks, got for snowboards. Super easy to slide into my Thule Evo crossbars. Built in lock in each one is a nice feature. Come well packaged with pretty fast delivery.

Review from a similar Locking Ski Rack in Ski and Snowboard Racks


The Rhino Rack is temperamental. It doesn't open or close as easily as our old Thule rack. At times we struggled to get it open (locks froze). After that incident,it was difficult to get it to snap closed and lock. For the first time, we took the racks off the car once ski season was over because we were afraid more exposure to the elements would make it worse.


Comments
I reached out to Rhino Rack who advised that it can become difficult to lock as the rubber piece slides forward. They recommend making sure that it is not in the way when using the lock.

Easy to install on the Thule Aero bars, stays solid on the rack and no wind noise when driving.

Review from a similar Locking Ski Rack in Ski and Snowboard Racks


Good locks, secure and tight. I easily fit two snowboards with two pairs of skis. Seems like it would fit on many rack/bar systems. I use them on the rhino aero vortex bars. They are pretty noisy on my f150 trucks roof. I’ve tried moving them around to many different positions, there always seems to be a worse vibrating wind noise around 45-55 mph which is even worse when the boards/skis are off the truck.
I would not recommend this setup for anyone with a pickup truck.

Review from a similar Locking Ski Rack in Ski and Snowboard Racks


Bought a Euro Roof rack and Rhino ski rack in October.
I ordered both items incorrectly....
I ordered the wrong fit kit (4 door instead of 5 door)....then I ordered to small of a ski rack. Didn’t start installed them until two months after receiving them so the return option was out of the question.
Etrailer worked with me and got me the correct parts and helped me send back to wrong ones.
They were all so helpful and informative. Kept me updated on the shipments and payment processes. The euro rack and rhino ski rack work amazing. We have a set of skis and one snowboard. Fits perfect. We have extra room for friends that ride up with us.
Easily installed.
Went 80mph and could barely hear them.
Would recommend this company to everyone.
