Differences Between the Rhino-Rack Nautic SUP 570 and 581


Hi Guys: I just got my Rino-Rack Nautic Roof SUP Series 570, only to find out in the packaging that a 580 series slides in the slot / channel of my Rino-Rack bars. All the installation illustrations so show it on the bars I have. My question is why didnt it see it offered as other options. I would have liked/preferred the 580 series. Anyway I can swap these 570 for the 580 series. The 580 are a lot easier to install and adjust. So you can see why would rather have the 580 Channel fitting series.

I'm sorry about the confusion!

The main differences between the Rhino-Rack Nautic SUP Series 570 # RR570 and the Nautic SUP Series # 581 # RR581 is that the 581 includes only channel-mounting hardware while the 570 only includes clamp-on hardware. For these two different hardware styles, they install differently onto your Rhino-Rack aero crossbars.

If the channel-mount option is important for you, you can definitely free free to change out the cradles. As far as why you didn't see it as another option, it really depends on the search terms used and the related products you looked at. For example, if you scroll down to the related products, the model 581 is listed on the 570 product page as an alternate option. I went ahead and attached a screenshot that shows this on the bottom of the product page for the # RR570.
