Uprights for Rhino Roof bars

Postby JMarkW » Fri Feb 17, 2017 1:35 pm


Looking to get some Rhino roof bars for my van, as I want to use the roller system that they sell but can't seem to see any uprights that might fit. The Rhino bars are quite aerodynamic in profile so just a straight parallel plate mount like on the Palm uprights probably not going to work that well?

Anybody got any Rhino bars with uprights?

Can't help with the specific query, but I used to use Palm uprights on Audi's aerobars - they fitted ok, although I did have to get longer bolts.

I have Rhino aero bars on my van – and the ladder roller is brilliant for loading sea kayaks on my own. The uprights help stop the boat sliding off the side so are pretty useful! I bought Karitek uprights from Reed: http://www.chillcheater.com/kayaks-and-paddles/kayak-uprights-for-x-bars. The uprights are heavy duty - just be careful when tightening the bolts as there is some give in the aero bars and they can be distorted.
