When you need heavy-duty cross bars for greater load carrying capacity you usually have to put up with a noisy, inefficient, square cross bar shape. But not with Whispbar HD Bars. They have a maximum load capacity of 220 lbs. per pair, with an aerodynamic shape that reduces drag for less wind noise and more miles per gallon. Featuring Inlay Load Strips that control airflow over the bar to further decrease drag and wind noise, and also help protect cargo, these bars also include horizontal pins at each end of the bar to provide convenient anchor points for tying down loads.
Whispbar's exclusive SmartFoot technology enables the rack to be installed on any style roof with a vehicle specific fitting kit, including smooth roofs, raised side rails, flush, fixed point, permanent installation, track and gutter mount. This technology enables you to use your roof rack on a similar sized vehicle with just the purchase of a fitting kit for that roof style.
The covers on the rack feet are lockable and the rack comes with 2 keys. Yakima SKS (Same Key System) cores can be installed, which enable you to lock all accessories with one key. Whispbar HD Bars come with comprehensive, illustrated installation instructions and they're backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
