Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbar

This low-profile, aerodynamic Vortex Aero crossbar lets you replace a damaged bar, add a third bar to an existing rack, or build a stylish aftermarket roof rack from scratch. The crossbar requires a pair of Rhino-Rack legs (manufactured in 2014 or later) and a custom fit kit to mount it to your roof. This bar extends past the roof rack legs to maximize the space for mounting carriers and accessories. Rubberized Vortex strips in the crossbar's top channel disrupt airflow for a quiet ride, and the bar is constructed of aluminum so it won't rust. The crossbar also includes 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 this 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.

Strong, Durable Construction

Vortex Aero crossbar 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.

No-Hassle Installation

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero bottom channel ruler

The 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

The 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 strip in the top channel comes in 3 pieces, so it's 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 strip provides a shock-absorbing, no-slip cushion for any accessories that rest on it.

Built-In Security

Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Secure Core locking endcaps

The 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 crossbar and help to secure channel-mounted accessories to the crossbar. For maximum security, you can upgrade to endcaps with all-metal lock cores (RRVA-LEC2 - sold separately).

I think it just looks good first of all. I can carry my paddle boards and still use my one touch roof top.

2012 Ford F-450 Super Duty

We had the challenge of how to carry 2 kayaks this summer in addition to hauling a 30 foot gooseneck horse trailer. We have F450 crew cab with custom truck bed. We hoped to use the "head ache" bar on the truck bed to support the rear sets of Swagman Rincon supports and purchased a single Rhino Vortex bar for the forward sets on top of the cab. We have 10.5 and 12 foot kayaks and this looks to be an excellent solution. The kayaks are clear of the gooseneck trailer even in a "jackknife" position. Please note the truck bed is extra long therefore there is plenty of room forward the nose of the trailer. We have not hauled yet but will convey any issues if there are any. eTrailer tech support was excellent. Product shipped as projected. Installation took approximatly 3 hours.

Great system, etrailer provides great service. I recommend whenever possible.

My setup -
Thule - Super easy to setup.
Thule Goalpost Hitch Mounted Load Bar (TH997)
Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar (RRVA150B) and associated fit kit - Single set

Solid construction but the directions for the Rhino-Rack components are worthless. Look online to get general idea of installation.

2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Matches the two rails ordered previously and allows me to have three cross bars on the spaced out across the roof of my F250 cab and camper cap. With the correct spacing it allows me to transport a 26ft rowing shell centered on the truck minimizing the overhang at both ends of the truck.


the crossbar itself is fine, I had ordered a single to accompany the two I already have on the vehicle so knew what I was getting.....or at least thought I did. Sadly the rubberized vortex strip was not included with the crossbar, appears everything else is there.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

Rhino makes some of the best roof racks and accessories. Easy to install and they last.


Excellent quality. Easy to install. No issues.


Great easy to install


A year later and they hold up great! I haul something every week on them and no complaints.


The racks are expensive, but are also worth it. I’ve used them mostly for my kayaks, but have also used them for carrying lumber and other home improvement items that won’t fit in my cab or bed.
I had a few issues with the ordering and shipping process, but they all got ironed out eventually.


Looks good and it works with my system, what else do you need!


Excellent product and service


Easy to install. I’m giving it 4 stars because this bar was added above the front driver and passenger door and is noisy driving down the interstate. I’ve gotten use to it but can’t help think there should be a way to make it quieter. I don’t hear anything from the real bars but they are on the topper.


Quick delivery. Good, easy to understand instructions in assembly. Haven’t yet put the bar to use but the solid construction and attachment to the side of the truck seems to be very good. Will was a great help as I needed only 1 bar for my needs. Thanks


Fits Great, Strong, Easy, Love it!!

  • How Much Can the Feet Be Adjusted On the 59" Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars
    Correct, there are 11.8 inches of adjustment under each side of the crossbar for you to adjust the feet in on the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars like part # RRVA150B-2. Therefore, the 59 inch bar will work great for two mounting points 54" apart.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2007 Ford F-150 SuperCab
    While there is a very good roof rack option for your 2007 Ford F-150 SuperCab, there is not a confirmed fit from Yakima. Instead, the rack I highly recommend for your 4-door SuperCab is from Rhino-Rack because it will give your '07 F-150 a rack that is highly functional and durable while being more economical than other high-quality roof racks. The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for your truck is made up of the following parts: - Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2 (Black) or # RRVA150S-2...

    I talked to Rhino Rack in regard to you upgrading your 54" Vortex Crossbars # RRVA137B-2 to the 59" Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2. I was told that you need to install the legs about 63.5mm (2-1/2") from the strip. You could also just set the longer bars in place and make sure it is completely centered on each side then attach the legs. I attached a demonstration video for you to check out.

However, the automated car wash must be touch-less. If the automated car wash is not touch-less then you would simply need to remove the roof rack which is very simple, just a few bolts per side. That said, this will apply to all roof racks so it is just something you must be caution...

    While we do have a great option for you, the 480xt and 480 Traverse towers will not work with your older Thule square bars for two reasons. The first is that they are designed for the newer Thule SquareBar Evo crossbars that have a bottom channel in them. Without the bottom channel, you cannot attach bars to the towers. Your 25-year old square crossbars do not have bottom channels in them. Secondly, the 480xt towers are discontinued from production. The only other option is to purchase...

In regards to what constitutes off-road, in the directions, Rhino-Rack states the load rating (which is 165 lbs for the rack) should be divided by two when "driven off sealed roads."

    Since the track on the underside of the Rhino Rack crossbars does not run the full length of the bar and it is what the feet of the rack attach to we can't guarantee you'd be able to fit the longer bars on your rack. I can say that when we installed the 54 inch rack part numbers # RRVA137B-2, # RRRCH4, and # RRRCP45-BK on a similar Explorer we found there was several inches further to the inside that the feet of the rack could attach to so I would be inclined to believe that the longer...
